TESTIMONIALS

Krysta

"It has been absolutely seamless. She's quick to respond. She knows what she's talking about. She has great experience. She's has great contacts. I really can't say enough positive about her. And if you're looking for someone whether it's just day of or whether it's some someone to bail you out and keep things in order like we did, or a full time wedding planner, she's you're girl! I'm here to say she is one of the best and we are so thankful that she has helped us and we can't wait for our wedding day to come forward because when it does, I know she's going to be on top of everything."

Brittany

"Melissa was a great addition to our wedding day. We had a very small destination wedding (20 people) so we at first did not think we needed a planner. Our officiant said we should get one anyway and Melissa from The Wedding Planner MD is who we ended up going with! She was great to work with and jumped right in to anything we needed done. Her rate was also very reasonable compared to others. We hired her just for day-of services but she helped us with a lot of other things along the process, not just the day of the wedding. She was especially helpful in the last two weeks leading up to the big day! Melissa took care of coordinating with vendors, making sure everyone had copies of the timeline and important information, helped us with a small rehearsal, and more. On the day of the wedding she took care of the table setup, flower delivery, and all of the other vendors that needed instructed on where to go, their setup, and more. She even took care of my bouquet for me during dinner so that it still looked beautiful for photos at sunset! Overall I am very happy that we hired Melissa because she made our wedding day much easier"

Megan

"Melissa was the most professional, most courteous. She asked the most in-depth questions during that interview process. She was the warmest person that we interviewed... She comes at this planning process with such a warm heart and she refers to such great vendors, great people. She always gives you multiple options. She always accommodates your budget and what you're really looking for out of your wedding experience. She's just an all around great person in general and I feel really lucky to not only be working with her but know her as a person myself."

Kathy

"Melissa from the Wedding Planner was so responsive & professional providing us with her Time & knowledge to plan our event. She worked out every detail & took the stress off of us so we could enjoy the day! We highly recommend her for any event and look forward to using her services again anytime in the future in SWFL."
