Natalie and her team were simply amazing!!! They went above and beyond to ensure my wedding day went smoothly, I had no clue if anything at all went wrong and my guest throughly enjoyed! She started working with me later in the planning process and still managed to make feel as though I purchased the complete package!!! All the issues I've heard with weddings not being able to eat, feeling rushed, etc I had none of those complaints and I thank EDG for it all!!!

So you if you happen to come across this page looking for a wedding planner, look no further. I made my decision to work with Event Design Group before our meeting ended. Natalie is great to work with and works HARD to make things happen. In addition she is quite accommodating and thinks ahead. Very good with responding to emails and giving advance warning if something cannot happen. If I were to get married again, I would choose her. Thanks for making my visions come to life Natalie. XOXO

We opted for the partial planning service and got taken for a ride. All the vendor services were always above budget. The owner kept imposing on us making decisions we weren't comfortable with. We ended up looking for vendors ourselves. A lot of the reasonably priced vendors did not want to work with this group because of their unprofessional communication methods. After many numerous budget decisions on our own. The proprietor go upset with us and threaten to cancel our contract, which we gladly did without hesitation. I believe a wedding planner should elevate stress and not add to wedding day gitters. I will never recommend using this company. Worst experience ever.

Event Design Group, LLC responded with the following comments:

At EDG we value our reputation & find it unfortunate that anyone would resort to untruths & disparaging remarks, in an attempt to degrade our work. The reviews provided by our previous clients are an accurate reflection of our dedication to commitment & quality. We provide legitimate references with each proposal, so potential clients can hear directly from previous clients about the EDG experience. With every event the client's expectations, guest count & budget must be properly aligned. If one of these variables is off, stress is inevitable. As professionals, we work with the client to appropriately manage these expectations, however, we cannot always change the tools which we are given. We encourage our clients to hire professionals who include thorough price quotes & contracts, no matter how reasonably priced they are. In our experience, when these important elements are missing, confusion ensues & important details are missed. We advocate for professionalism with all vendor partners at all times. Unfortunately, on rare occasion, we receive push back from those select few vendors. At no point, in this or any client relationship, has any member of our team, demonstrated negative/ derogatory behavior towards a client. However, at times when a client goes astray, we politely work with them to get all parties back on track. At all times, we work to be respectful of our client’s time & ask that our clients extend us the courtesy of doing the same. In rare instances where a client is consistently unable to meet this expectation, we must unfortunately remind them of the boundaries set forth in our agreement. This was the case here after late payment & several missed appointments. Consistent with our company policy, we extended grace & notified client that should this behavior continue, we would have to enact our Right of Withdrawal per the agreement. The CLIENT effectively expressed their right to cancel our services, which we obliged.

Working with Natalie and Event Design Group was AMAZING! She made us feel at ease right away. She was sooooo organized, so professional, and so responsive. Planning a wedding can be pretty overwhelming, but having Natalie on our team gave us so much reassurance. Not to mention, she came up with some of the most stand-out ideas that made our wedding even more memorable for us and our guests. The day ended up being more magical than I could have ever expected, and I give much of the credit to Natalie. I would HIGHLY recommend her. I was sad when our working relationship came to an end, but happy I can now count her as one of my friends.

Natalie Melton and her team were fantastic! I am being totally honest in this review when I say that they crossed every T and dotted every I. I was able to hold a 400 guest (plus 30 children/young adults!!! ) wedding for an Ethiopian-American fusion wedding, and she was able to incorporate all of the cultural details into my wedding. My guests are still raving about my wedding. She helped me save tons of money on vendors. She was my advocate in negotiations. She helped me stick to essential wedding etiquette. A wedding as big as mine could have easily turned into a tacky confusion, but instead was seamlessly managed! There was never a moment where I doubted her team's ability. She provided a very detailed itinerary to every single participant in my wedding, from the bridal party, vendors, and my fiance. This saved me tons of stress! Lastly, she was a listening ear when I was feeling overwhelmed throughout the process. I can go on and on about her and her team. Thank you Event Design Group for your extreme professionalism!

Natalie of Event Design Group was a true gem for our wedding day. As our "month-of" coordinator she came in to wrap up the final details of the wedding and facilitate the actual day. Natalie made our wedding day flawless. We had no worries and to us everything went perfect (the MOST important thing for your wedding day). I thought it would be difficult to hand over everything I diligently planned to someone else but she was detail oriented, attentive, and very efficient. She went above and beyond and was always available to us. My fiance' (now husband) didn't think a wedding coordinator was necessary and after our wedding he stated she was the best money spent. From a groom's perspective concerning money and the budget now that's important! :-)

Event Design group created the best wedding planning experience for my husband and I. It was hands down the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding process. EDG allowed my husband and I to enjoy the wedding planning process and not stress over the small things. We worked with Natalie and when I say she covered all the bases I do mean all. From beginning to end Natalie was on top of every single detail. I had a destination wedding at Iberostar Grand Rose, Montego Bay Jamaica which was absolutely beautiful. We did not want a typical destination wedding, we wanted it personalized but had no idea how to do that. EDG stepped right in and made that happen. We had a beautiful destination wedding with our own personal touches. Not only were we able to enjoy the wedding but our guests had an amazing time. EDG has a lot of knowledge and professionalism and makes the wedding planning process seamless. EDG did a beautiful job with planning our wedding day and I would absolutely recommend them for planning any events.

These ladies worked their butts off!!!

I was impessed, my day went by flawless. I only wished they had the mute/freeze button on some of members of my bridal party, lol.

They kept my ideas and planning madness on track, financially pratical and design savy.

The staff was sharp, professional and prompt, unlike me,the bride, lol. Time what's that?

I am greatfull for these guys as unorganized as I am they whipped me into wedding tip top timeline shape. I have a new found respect for event planners.

I would recommend EDG again and again.
