    Melanie is a wedding planning/coordinating rock star!

    Melanie does incredible work and working with her was one of the best decisions we made throughout our planning process.

    Some highlights of working with her for us - She was always available and responsive and even met with us in person a few times leading up to our big day. We left every conversation with her at ease knowing that we were in good hands. Our actual wedding day was where Melanie really blew us away... She took care of coordinating all of our vendors and making sure our vision came to life. She was always a few steps ahead of us keeping things (and people!) moving so we really got to be present the entire time (small, but meaningful example is that my cool sparkly sneakers just showed up at our table right before the dancing started). In addition to being a rock star coordinator/planner, she also officiated our ceremony. From helping us write the ceremony to actually officiating, she was a true professional.

    Melanie, thank you for everything! We loved having you be a part of our day.

    Working with Melanie was hands down the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. I've never met anyone who is so good at what they do and loves it so much as her. My wife and I can't recommend her highly enough.

    In the months leading up to the wedding, she was so easy to work with. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but Melanie had a timeline of everything that needed to get done (even the little things) and she made sure we were on-schedule. She gave us excellent vendor recommendations (people told us that the food was the best they've had at a wedding, and the band was a huge hit as well!). She was extremely responsive and would even have us send her things we liked from Instagram for inspiration. Every time we got off the phone with her we would look at each other and say "I'm so glad we have Melanie on our team." She kept us on-budget and helped us understand what it was worth it to spend on as we searched for venues, caterers, bands, flowers, and more.

    During the wedding week and weekend, Melanie kept everyone calm and on-task. She made sure all the tents, tables, chairs, etc were delivered on-time and everyone was where they should be. She took care of all the "little things" that we didn't think of and even coordinated our rehearsal. The event was beautiful, and we owe a lot of that to Melanie's tasteful suggestions. (She also let us borrow a lot of her own things like signs and a cake stand.) Melanie was always one or two steps ahead of us on wedding day, and we didn't have to think about where we should be for photos or speeches- we really go to enjoy the day and be present. She was there until the last guest had gone home.

    I 100% recommend Melanie, and can't imagine how we would have done it without her.

    Father of the Bride

    My wife and I like to think we throw a pretty good party. We have hosted many over the years. So when our daughter and her fiancée hired Blissful Beginnings, we thought they could have put that money towards something else they could use. It turns out our logic was flawed. The investment in Blissful Beginnings’ services paid huge dividends. This was not only in money eventually saved, but also having the confidence instilled in us by Melanie Voros that she would provide us with the perfect day. She delivered on every level! The best part is you just knew that would be the outcome after the first meeting with her months before the wedding weekend. Melanie listened to what the future bride and groom wanted and provided us with great options, always keeping the budget in mind. She was eventually hired by our daughter’s in-laws to manage the rehearsal dinner for 80+ guests. It was spectacular and so was the wedding!

    In the final analysis, if you want to know your kids day to be what they want, stay on a reasonable budget, sleep at night, maintain your own marital harmony, just relax and have fun the entire weekend of the festivities...hire Melanie Voros and Blissful Beginnings!
