Excellent job and very professional.
Melanie Murphy did an excellent job. My daughters wedding could not have been any more perfect. She took the pressure off me and allowed me to enjoy the day along with spending quality time with my daughter and her guests. Thanks for all you did.Sent on 04/01/2021

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.
EdgeWire Music has worked with Melanie Murphy of By Invitation Only countless times. Melanie is a true professional - handling any situation with composure and professionalism. We are excited to see her name/company as the wedding planner in our contracts!!!
I have always loved working with Melanie on her weddings... she always tasks me with some sort of incredible drape design. I always fam anxious to see the final outcome and as always her final vision looks stunning!
Melanie and her team are the cream of the crop when it comes to event planning and design. Always wonderful working the BIO!
