Wedding Planner & Therapist!

I was introduced to Michelle Rowland Events through a friend’s wedding. My friend’s wedding was not only beautiful but everything ran so smoothly! Michelle was able to handle all the vendors as well as a rowdy bridal party with ease and no hurt feelings. I even heard one of the bartenders say she was the nicest wedding planner he had ever encountered. I knew then I was going to use her services for my upcoming wedding.

I’ve booked full planning with Michelle and I’m so happy I have. I’ve had a two year engagement and my wedding will be in a year so needless to say I’ve had time to come up with 1000 different ideas and multiple visions of my wedding. Michelle has been great at taking my ideas and creating a cohesive design for my wedding and helping me commit to decisions (hence the therapist part). I can’t recommend Michelle enough especially if you’re struggling with all the decisions before the day but as well as for day of coordination!

How to have a beautiful wedding without going insane (or broke)

I can’t recommend Michelle highly enough. She’ll save your sanity, make your wedding gorgeous, and help you use your budget in the savviest ways.

I hired Michelle because I was slammed at work, and worrying about the wedding was ruining my engagement. We planned a beautiful wedding for that summer. Then Covid hit, and everything changed. But Michelle seamlessly helped me plan and re-plan as the guidance changed. She was endlessly patient in making calls, reworking plans, and listening to my sadness about Covid-enforced changes. I got married in August of 2020. And though the number of guests was much, much smaller than expected, and I had to wear a mask down the aisle, both the ceremony and reception were beautiful and unforgettable. Best of all, nobody got sick. I had a moment before the wedding where I felt silly that I had hired a wedding planner for such a tiny wedding, and my sister replied, “Are you kidding? Michelle is the one making this wedding happen. You would already have gone crazy without her. . . or the wedding would be chintzy.” She was right.

1) Style. One of Michelle’s gifts is an ability to immerse herself in your style (whatever that is). She’ll make your wedding beautiful by making it the best version of your style – not by imposing her own aesthetic on you. You won’t ever feel that you’re getting generic “wedding” décor. She’ll really HEAR you when you tell her what you love and what you hate, and she’ll help you realize your vision.

2) Sanity. Whether you’re hiring Michelle for the month before the wedding, week of coordination, or the full planning process, she’s a lifesaver for your sanity. She has such a reserve of calm warmth and an extensive knowledge of the field. She’ll keep her cool and handle emergencies and last-minute issues so that you won’t even have to think about them (much less stress about them). No matter how well you’ve planned, errands and issues will crop up like dandelions in the weeks and days before the wedding. With Michelle at your side, these are no problem.

3) Organization. There are endless free lists and planning tools on this site. But even used effectively, they leave a weight on your mind of tasks left undone and anxiety about completion. Michelle will remove all that because you’ll know that she’s on it and won’t let anything slip through the cracks.

4) Budget. I know you’re thinking of ways to cut down on costs, and it may seem counterintuitive to hire a wedding planner. But Michelle will make your budget go further. Her advice is invaluable on what things will cost for the specific wedding you desire, where you’re inflating your budget through your choices, how you can save, and how to direct your budget most effectively for the biggest impact (and it’s much better than generic information you’ll find online). She’s worth it (even if you’re 90% planned).

5) The Oprah Factor. I couldn’t think what to call this because it’s an obvious but nebulous part of choosing a wedding planner. You really, really, really need to like your wedding planner. Otherwise, the process will be a drain. You will like Michelle, I promise. By your wedding, she’ll be a friend you’re glad to have present.

Best Decision Ever!

Hiring Michelle as our “Day-of-Coordinator” was one of the best wedding-related decisions my husband and I made (besides marrying each other, of course)! I don’t think it’s possible for me to say enough good things about our experience. Michelle is not only incredibly kind, sweet, and patient, but she is also a true professional who absolutely excels at her job. Just like her website says, even though she was technically our “day-of” coordinator, she got in touch with us about a month before our wedding and helped us throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer questions or provide us some advice, particularly since our wedding involved a lot of moving parts, such as a shuttle bus for guests and several stops for our limo. She was so helpful with our vendors as well, knowing exactly what questions to ask and how to get things done. She was even in contact with my mom, and helped calm her nerves, which is not an easy task! All of the little behind-the-scenes details, from our table settings and favors, to our timeline and where exactly my change of shoes were at the hall, were handled seamlessly by Michelle. I swear, she’s magic. Some people have said that although it’s fun, your wedding day is also the most stressful day of your life, but that couldn’t have been farther from the truth. Because of Michelle, my husband and I were truly able to enjoy and celebrate our wedding day, without worrying at all! 10/10, would most definitely recommend!
