Melanie was already booked for our wedding date by the time I reached out to her, but she remained in constant communication with me throughout the whole process, attending all meetings and providing valuable insight when needed. Jenny did an outstanding job in her absence on the day of, between officiating and managing the vendors. We had a ridiculous situation with our caterer that day, and Jenny handled it without me or my husband being any the wiser. When I look back on my wedding day, I'm so glad that Blissful Beginnings was a part of it!

Melanie is amazing!! I worked with her over 2 years to plan my 200+ outdoor wedding. She was so professional and helpful through the process. She eased my mind with my many questions and always had great suggestions for our special day. She helped me with menus, rental orders, timelines, contacting other vendors, etc. The day of the wedding everything went so smooth and it was because of Melanie. There were several vendors to coordinate and everything went off without a hitch! My husband, families and I are SO happy with how everything turned out and it was truly because of Melanie's hard work and attention to detail. I highly recommend working with Melanie, she will make your special day even more perfect than you could have imagined.

Melanie was the best referral I could have ever received. She worked on our daughter's wedding which was a destination wedding for us as well as the rehearsal dinner. From our first meeting to the wedding day, Melanie was always there for us. I was able to completely enjoy and relax at my daughter's wedding which was exactly what I wanted to do. She provided us with lots of great vendor referrals and many ways to optimize our budget. Each vendor was TERRIFIC and her relationships with them were so helpful in ensuring a great event. She spent many hours working with my daughter, her husband , my husband and me in answering our questions and ensuring we would have a spectacular event. Comments from our guests were--Magical, WOW, best wedding ever been to, everything was perfect, your planner was there offering us an umbrella at the rehearsal dinner and couldn't have been nicer, etc. etc. I can't say enough good things about Melanie. My only regret after the wedding was that I wouldn't be able to be in constant contact with Melanie any more. I truly value the relationship that we developed during the last year and am planning to stay in touch with her. I would highly recommend her for any event you are planning.

Words almost can't even describe how phenomenal Melanie is to work with. She is on top of every detail, incredibly well-connected and respected with every single vendor in the New England area and literally made the wedding planning process a stress-free experience for both me and my mother who are very rarely stress-free people. From our first meeting in October (for an August wedding), Melanie had this great energy about her - excited, high-spirited and just fun to be around. As the days came closer and closer down to the wedding day itself, Melanie would respond to every email/text to let us know that she had our questions covered - even if it was a weekend - she was just on top of it in a way that really calmed any nerves I had going into the day. She quickly bonded with my bridal party - making herself a resource to them as well, which was amazing. She also worked really closely with my in-laws to plan our Friday night welcome reception, which was absolute perfection. Melanie is one-of-a-kind in her profession from what I can tell and I'd absolutely recommend her to anyone, even if they aren't getting married in New England...she'd figure out how to nail it!!!!!

Melanie is extraordinary and I would recommend her to any friends and family. I wasn't ever the type to grow up dreaming of my perfect wedding. When we started planning, I really had no idea what I was doing. Thanks to Melanie, we were able to construct the most perfect weekend (welcome dinner for all guests, wedding, then brunch).

What I benefited from the most was:
1. Her recommendations with vendors. She has worked with most if not all. I was 100% satisfied (understatement of the year) with every vendor we found thanks to Melanie
2. Her responsiveness. Melanie is ORGANIZED and FAST. I always received extraordinarily prompt responses via call, text, and e-mail
3. Her knowledge. She has seen and done it all. When we had ideas, she was always honest with how it would actually look. We were not "yessed" to death. Endless wedding etiquette. My family is complicated and she was able to help me navigate some familial madness!
4. Proactiveness. She gets things DONE.

She is the whole package. Not to mention, she makes everything FUN! Can't recommend her enough!

In a word, "wow" Melanie was absolutely amazing. As the mother of the bride, I did my due diligence in finding a wedding planner. I had heard great things about Melanie but she exceeded my expectations. My daughter and I loved working with Melanie. She was knowledgable, sensible, creative and fun. Melanie provided us with great suggestions for vendors, great ideas and constant support and guidance. I have so many friends who describe the whole wedding planning process as stressful and difficult. We had a great time planning the wedding. The wedding day itself went off without a single glitch. It was wonderful and for anyone who thinks they don't need a wedding planner, all I can say is that it is money well spent. And in the world of wedding planners - Melanie is the best!!!!

When you're planning something as important as a wedding, you want a seasoned professional with strong leadership skills, good relationships with vendors, and knowledge of how things should be done. You also want someone who listens well and is open to shaping the event to reflect the tastes and personalities of the families involved. Melanie embodies all of that beautifully.
We worked with Melanie for a year, and it's obvious she loves her work. She maintained her professionalism at ALL times, took care of tasks with unending energy (think "Energizer Bunny"), and was just plain fun to be with in the process. Now that my daughter's wedding is over, we will miss our time with Melanie!
