Modern Rebel is an alternative event planning company in NYC, Los Angeles, + Washington D.C. that helps couples rewrite the rules of their weddings by emphasizing authenticity, fun, and the health of their partnership in the planning process.
Our team is made up of women + queer feminists who believe your relationship always comes first as we help you throw a kickass celebration that dwells on the heart swelling, mind-blowing love stuff and not the light-airy-wedding-industrial-complex we- want-to-oversell-you-on-the-swans type of thing. Plus, we give back to local non-profits through each and every event so that love extends far past the dance floor.
Modern Rebel offers full-service planning, partial planning, and coordination that starts two months out from your wedding day. Our team is made up of talented and experienced planners who believe in priorizing people over Pinterest perfection. We approach the planning process by getting to know you and your partnership so we can help you bring your unique celebration of love to life.
Our planners are calm, cool, collected, and fun to work with! We help you choose a venue, manage and communicate with vendors, create and manage guest lists, arrange transportation and lodging, and so much more. On the day of your wedding we handle everything from set up to load out, manage any snags along the way, and keep your event moving smoothly so you can focus on enjoying your magical, one-of-a-kind day with the people you love most.

Modern Rebel made our wedding 100% stress-free!
If you want a stress-free wedding, hire Modern Rebel. We worked with Cait as our month-of-coordinator and she couldn't have been more professional, helpful, knowledgable cheerful, and lovely!! She was incredibly responsive, answered all of our questions, knew which questions to ask us (which is important otherwise there are little details we never would have thought about), never pushed us to do things we didn't want to (we nixed a lot of the traditional wedding things) had great suggestions for everything from handling family dynamics to the ceremony format - and she was a pro at reminding us to eat day of (something you think you wouldn't forget to do but totally do without a reminder). She was able to corral our large families and keepSent on 04/14/2019
everything on track without being overbearing or making people feel rushed in any way. Put simply, she was amazing and made the lead up to our wedding - and the wedding day itself - totally stress free, which allowed us to focus on each other and our friends and family. Going into it, we were so worried because it's the most expensive, important, and emotionally-wound up day of our lives and in the lead up you spend a lot of time thinking about what can go wrong. With Cait, nothing did - it was a seamless, smooth perfect night and we cannot thank her enough for that!!! She made our dream wedding day come true!!!

Thank you Gina!!
Gina from Modern Rebel was an absolute dream. She was calm, organized, supportive, and so nice! She made the day go by flawlessly so that my wife and I did not have to worry about a single thing. She was consistently there at a moment's notice, yet somehow her presence was always subtle and unobtrusive. She anticipated all of our needs, and made us feel like royalty. Leading up to the wedding she was able to provide detailed information that helped enormously with logistics, but she never pressured us or made us feel nervous. I can't recommend Modern Rebel, and Gina specifically, enough.Sent on 03/31/2019

My husband and I hired Modern Rebel to provide month-of coordination, and it was completely worth it. We got to work with Ainsley (and Gina, who assisted day of), for whom we have only glowing things to say. I'll try to keep it brief: Their self-professed superpower is organization, which I will testify to and remain amazed by. And I'm pretty spreadsheet-friendly. It's just a lot. Ainsley's also positive, detail-oriented, and in charge, yet laid back and genuinely interested in you as individuals and a couple. Every call, email, in-person chat plummeted my anxiety levels. They're a total professional whose only concern is to let us enjoy our day with total peace of mind. We got that, plus an easy way to give back by having 5% of our fee donated to one of their preferred non-profits. I'll be recommending MR to anyone planning their wedding.Sent on 04/09/2019
The raddest bunch of wedding planners there ever were! Amy is awesome and doing incredible things to change the wedding industry, and her team rocks too. Highly recommend.
