Easiest Wedding Ever
Melanie Murphy was efficient, professional, and delivered on every aspect. She was supportive when the wedding was one of the first to be canceled due to COVID, and helped us quickly regroup when it was ultimately decided to downsize the wedding two weeks prior. Her meetings were always timely and planning goals were met. Melanie's business is the real deal and worth every penny.Sent on 07/22/2020

Melanie Murphy and the team at By Invitation Only are masters of wedding planning! My husband and I were planning our wedding from out of state and Melanie made it happen. She was in constant communication with us, keeping us on track and giving advice every step of the way. If we had a question she always had an answer, any problem that arose, no matter how small, had a solution almost instantly. Melanie was completely on top of every detail.Sent on 05/01/2020
I was extremely daunted by planning a wedding and had no clue all of the little details that go into every aspect so I knew from the start that I wanted a wedding planner, and Melanie was absolutely perfect for us! She worked incredibly well with all of our vendors and kept our stress to a minimum.
On the day of our wedding my husband realized multiple of the guys didn't have a pocket square for their tuxes, he called Melanie and she had it covered. She was our advocate throughout the wedding planning processes and worked with our budget to make the wedding of our dreams.
Our day was absolutely perfect and it was because of all the hard work from Melanie and the rest of the ladies at By Invitation Only.

Seamless, detail-oriented, knowledgable planning!
We are so grateful we hired a wedding planner, and are even more thankful we went with By Invitation Only. Melanie was a joy to work with, she put us at ease from the very beginning to the very end, answering all our questions. She made the rehearsal and wedding day so seamless and I can't imagine not hiring her! Highly recommend to anyone planning any eventSent on 10/09/2019
