Melanie and her team are an absolute dream with which to work. When we first met, I had no idea what we wanted, what to do, or how to get started. Melanie was always responsive to my questions, ideas, or random worries; she guided and supported us through the wildly cumbersome process of planning a wedding while keeping it fun and exciting; and she made everything easy and stress-free. Melanie created the most beautiful fairy tale wedding we could have ever imagined. We’re so very grateful for all that she did for us in bringing our perfect day to life. I can't say enough wonderful things about By Invitation Only. I'd work with them again in a heartbeat.
Melanie and her team completely transformed our wedding experience. I could not imagine anything more anyone could want from a wedding planner. Throughout the planning process Melanie is available to offer insight and organizational assistance, she accompanied us on vendor meetings and stepped in at the perfect moments to answer the questions we were obviously clueless about. Leading up to the wedding the most impressive thing about Melanie is that SHE JUST GETS STUFF DONE. She really puts all the work in ahead of time so nothing can go wrong.
Then on the wedding day she's like your ultimate ally- her and her team are so clearly there for us it made the whole experience so, so, so enjoyable. Her assistants were lovely, they brought us food, beer, and water during pictures, and then set up a time for us to eat our dinner up and away from our guests, which was really nice. They were bubbly and smiley the entire night. They were just such a pleasure to have around on such a special night. We cannot express how thankful we are for Melanie and her amazing team.
OH not to mention Melanie goes above and beyond to create the most beautiful venues. I'm the kind of girl who consistently leaves the hair salon unsatisfied because they can never quite get it how I want it, or how I feel I describe it. I walked into our reception STUNNED, everything was exactly how I imagined it in my head, and sometimes better. She just incorporates all the little details to pull everything together and create a seriously magical night.
Melanie and her team are so amazing! We have gotten so many compliments on how much fun and how beautiful our wedding was. Melanie literally took all of my ideas and turned them into a reality. My family and I had nothing to worry about on my wedding day. Melanie and her team took care of everything (communicating with the other vendors, decorating, keeping the families and bridal party under control, making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time). A wedding can be stressful no matter what. The month and more specifically week leading up to our wedding, my husband and I were have problems in our rental house (completely unrelated to wedding stuff). It would have been overwhelmingly stressful no matter what, but having the wedding added to everything I thought my head was going to explode. Melanie helped me so much there’s no way I could have gotten through everything without her. The week before the wedding Melanie helped me tie up all loose ends with the wedding and I was able to focus on getting the situation with my house fixed before our families arrived for the wedding. On our wedding day I had nothing at all to worry about. I’ll never forget arriving to the venue from the salon and seeing everything put together exactly how I had imagined it (like my Pinterest pages came to life). It literally took my breath away. My best friend referred Melanie to me. I have also been to several weddings that Melanie and her team have designed and planned. Each wedding was absolutely beautiful and different from the other. She’s able to match her design to each brides’ different personality and ideas. The best part about all of her weddings that I have attended is they have not only been breathtakingly beautiful but an absolute blast! She’s a necessity if you are getting married and need a planner. You won’t regret it!
