Melissa and her team are an absolute dream come true! Planning the wedding was a family affair for us, so Sophia and Melissa were especially good at bringing together all of the noise we made. What separates Melissa and her team from other vendors is that MAE isn't wedding planning, it's wedding design. Melissa takes an artistic approach to her weddings which is beyond the logistics-oriented one her competitors emphasize (logistics are an assumed part of wedding planning, what else can you do for us!) We held our event at the Art Gallery of Ontario and needed arrangements for a prayer room, Halal food and outstanding entertainment. Melissa's team went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met and that the venue, menu and entertainment were the best our guests had ever seen. We have never attended a wedding like the one Melissa had planned for us and don't think anyone else will be able to either -- it felt like being inside an Oscars AP! Melissa is a visionary wedding planner who will add intellectual and creative depth to any event she touches. Quite literally the most fabulous planner in Toronto!

We highly recommend the full wedding planning services from the MAE team! Specifically, we worked with Sophia who lead and managed the planning and execution of our dream wedding.

Truthfully, without the help of Sophia, I am confident our wedding would not have been the success it was!

She was there every step of the way, providing expertise and guidance when we needed, and an overall artistic eye to ensure the aesthetics of the whole event was coordinated and aligned with our vision for the day.

I think the greatest strengths of the MAE team is firstly their overall creativeness and ability to provide options for you to execute your vision. Secondly, their expertise and relationships in this industry will help connect you to any vendor/supplier/service you dream of. And lastly, their true gift is their logistics and execution skills!! Even if you are someone who enjoys planning a wedding, often times the actual execution is overlooked. Sophia made our day feel seamless, not only for us, but for our guests, our bridal party, our parents. Everyone was able to enjoy themselves, without having to think where/if flowers were delivered on time or if the favours were placed out etc.

I truly enjoyed working with Sophia and her assistant Thameena. The weeks leading up to the wedding involved numerous emails back and forth and no matter the requests/thoughts that came from us, Sophia & Thameena were always there as a sounding board with a quick response, positive energy, and a solution! I am so grateful for the work they put in and look back wishing we could do it all over again - exactly the same way!

The only caution I extend is the withdrawal you will feel post-wedding when there isn't someone tending to your every need. I guess that's what your spouse is for...but I'm sure Sophia can attest, mine is not quite as responsive.... :)

Thank you Sophia! Thank you Thameena! Thank you MAE! xx

We couldn't have asked for our wedding to be any more perfect than it was. We knew we wanted something outside the box and different from the typical wedding; however, what was executed was beyond anything we had hoped for. Our day was truly perfect and every angle (from car rentals to canapes) were all covered and organized by the team at Melissa Andre Events. It was a dream come true and pure magic!

My wedding would not have been the amazing day and night that it was without the help of Melissa and her team. I don't know how I would have managed anything from what to write on the invites (both my husband's parents and my parents are no longer together) to helping me wrangle my family members on the day for photos! I always felt that I could count on them whether it was just a quick question over e-mail or a 3 hour meeting at their office (some of my favourite times planning!!). They may have some high-profile clients but I never felt that they pushed me and my fiance aside just because we had a modest budget. They were more than willing to work with my budget and work their magic to make everything stunning! We can't thank them enough!!

In the months leading up to my wedding in September, I was juggling grad school, full-time work and wedding planning. There was no way I could have survived that period and experienced the best day of my life without Melissa Andre and her team - specifically Danielle Barich and Sophia Lal.
In our initial consultations, Melissa understood what I was looking for completely. She took the playfulness of my initial ideas (a baking theme) and with Danielle/Sophia, elevated and took it to another level. She also understood that I was on a budget, and continually suggested ideas that would result in cost savings.
Especially in the weeks leading up to the wedding, I was literally sending the team 10+ e-mails a day overanalyzing every little detail. Yet, they were completely patient, responsive, realistic and encouraging. They were also always apologetic if I didn't hear from them for a day or two. They helped me to always keep focus and worry less about the little things, which they ultimately took care of. On the day of, I don't even know how everything came together so smoothly. All I know is that my bridal party/family members were able to relax, and just be my support team. The timing of the agenda played out perfectly, and the transformation of our venue was simply magical.
We also encountered a problem with one vendor (which was not one of Melissa's recommendations), and after the fact they even helped us to chase down that vendor to rectify the situation. They were there from beginning to end to even the days after.
So, on two fronts, Melissa and her team transforms your wedding into a dream come true from a design and feasibility perspective, but they also quietly work in the background to take care of all the little nuances that a bride really shouldn't have to worry about on the wedding day. You only get married once and that 'perfect' wedding would just not be the same without MAE.

I have a very demanding work and travel schedule, and I knew that a full-service wedding planner would be crucial to execute the look and feel I had envisioned for our wedding. As I flipped through a million magazines, I quickly realized that every editorial or real wedding that caught my eye, was designed by Melissa Andre!

Melissa has a very unique aesthetic and distant style – She has a true understanding of trends and fashion, and a gift for conceptual design. She understands what is classic and chic, yet can elevate it to make it new, fresh, and unique. In a nutshell – she has great taste. Which is key when you are looking to design the biggest party you’ll probably ever throw.

Melissa worked with us to design every aspect of our day, including invitations, stationary, menu, floral, tablescape, lighting, and décor. Her in-house makeup artist was also the absolute best (I was actually considering doing my own because my experience to-date had been so terrible). The day flowed beautifully, and I was able to enjoy and savor ever aspect of the wedding as a special guest. What more could a bride ask for? Every single guest commented that our wedding was by far, the best they’ve ever attended. It was obvious that guests were blow away by the attention and thought given to every detail. Even the guests favours were unique, special, and yet, so practical!

I’m an A-type perfectionist with a critical eye, and Melissa Andre exceeded even my highest expectations. She is also smart, funny, and extremely attentive. It was like having a good friend plan your wedding. My only recommendation is to let go of the reins and TRUST her. Your event will be a million times more beautiful and special if you let her have creative freedom. Melissa is able to take your ideas and turn them into something out of a living daydream. Hands down the best wedding planner in the game!

My husband and I opted for the 'day of' service with Melissa Andre Events. We couldn't be happier with our experience, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service, or Melissa and her team. Our meetings (first with Melissa, and then with our 'day of' coordinators Danielle and Alia) were professional and informative, and we always felt we were given the time and attention our day deserved. Helpful suggestions were made when necessary, while at the same time always honouring our vision for the event.

On our wedding day, Danielle kept in touch with us by phone, and kept things running extremely smoothly--if there were any problems, we never heard about them. We hired our own vendours, and Danielle co-ordinated with all of them to give us a stress-free day we could enjoy to the fullest.

Melissa Andre Events provided exactly what we needed with grace and style, and within our modest budget.

We worked with Melissa and her team to plan and design our wedding this summer! It truly was the best wedding and I couldn't have imagined a prettier one! They presented all of these gorgeous options and were wonderful about creating multiple floor plans and putting together so many beautiful ideas so we were really comfortable and thrilled with the end result! Our wedding was truly unique and we loved the design details and styling they incorporated into the day. I work in the fashion industry and certainly had an aesthetic for how I wanted the wedding to look and feel but they were really able to show me options I didn't even know existed and bring in elements that made everything truly unique and memorable. Melissa and her team were amazing and I will always be thankful to them! They even designed a 30 foot bar and gorgeous lounge in the space that my now-husband totally fell in love with! They really listened to us and surprised us in a good way. Our wedding was even featured in the Style Me Pretty Magazine http://www.stylemepretty.com/2013/11/14/toronto-wedding-at-the-burroughs-building-from-mango-studios/ which was so flattering! They only choose a handful of weddings to feature so we were more than thrilled!

Melissa Andre is a force of nature, and everything she touches turns into pure magic. Her creative direction made our wedding an endless delight for our guests; their gasps of joy at every perfect surprise speak for themselves. We lacked confidence in how to execute our ideas and unify the elements of our vision, but once Melissa stepped in, everything fell into place. She understood and took inspiration from us, and brought our ideas and our event alive with utmost dedication. The schedule unfolded flawlessly and seemed effortless on the big day, but so much hard work and effort behind the scenes by Melissa’s whole team, especially Jordan, made sure we didn't need to worry about a thing.

Melissa is like the conductor of a grand symphony, drawing all aspects of an event into harmony. We especially loved the whimsical sweet table that she designed, a delicious tablescape that was a feast for all the senses, with every detail incredibly beautiful and delicious.

We wanted the effect of a stage in the center of the room for the performances, but we had planned for mundane draping we didn’t love. Melissa stepped in, worked her magic, and in the end it was a million times better. She ensured that the fabric, colour, texture and every detail were soft, gorgeously billowing, and just amazing. We were given the surprise of our lives when the whimsical "stage curtains" opened for the big reveal; people keep telling us that moment gave them shivers.

I consider Melissa Andre to be the best thing that happened to our wedding. She is the reason it went from being ordinary to being extraordinary. She gave us the most perfect day of our lives, in coordinating the design with our suppliers, transforming two relatively plain, simple venues into a fantasy world. So much hard work and imagination went into perfecting such splendour, and we will never forget this. We will always be grateful and we will forever cherish the memory of what Melissa created for us!

Melissa and her team of planners and makeup artists are fabulous. She was always there every step of the way if I had a question, but still let me do my own planning. Melissa is a friend and she really cared about all the decor details as much as I did. Both she and Sophia did a great job making sure that everything was perfect on the day of our wedding. Everything was set up so beautifully and they made sure that the timing of everything worked out great. Melissa really wasn't feeling well on our wedding day, but she still made sure to attend and carry out her work wonderfully. I highly recommend her services!

I was so impressed with Melissa Andre and her fabulous team when I worked with them for my wedding. Not only did they do an amazing job on the hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party, our coordinator Jordan was absolutely amazing. Jordan helped me relax in the weeks leading up to our big day. She went out of her way to help with some challenges we had with our venue and did so in an incredibly professional manner. On the day of, I was able to relax and enjoy every moment because I knew that Jordan had everything under control. She was easy-going, helpful and so much fun to work with. I would highly suggest all brides go with Melissa Andre Events for your planning. Even if you think you don't need help, it is so nice to sit back and enjoy the day when you know that details are being looked after by a team who cares and will work tirelessly to make sure your wedding is perfect.

Melissa is an absolute professional in every way and worth every penny. After a short conversation, she was able to take my very general, scattered ideas of what I wanted my wedding to look like and create an event that was better than I could have even imagined. She is incredibly creative and will provide you with a one of a kind, personalized wedding.

I always heard that planning a wedding was the most stressful thing, but with Melissa's help I was able to enjoy "being engaged" and not worry about all the pesky little details.

I would 100% work with Melissa and her team again!

Melissa and her team are amazing! They were literally like my little fairy godmothers! Poof! There's a beautiful design. Poof! There's a beautiful cake. Poof! There's a beautiful dress shop.

I'm so glad I went to Melissa early in the process (literally right after I got engaged!) Her and her amazing team sat down with me and my now husband(!) and spent time getting to know us. It was so great. Once we started talking everything out Melissa developed such an amazing complete look and feel from venue, to flowers, to cake, to table layout, to everything! Down to the ribbon around the bouquet. It was such an amazing process. I really felt like a guest (one of the most important ones!) at my own wedding. But the amazing thing is after hearing back from guests, they felt the same thing! Every single person had an amazing experience and got to enjoy me and my husband's big day.

Melissa saved my Wedding Day!

I contacted Melissa for help 5 months before my wedding. I was becoming so overwhelmed trying to do everything on my own and once I met Melissa I knew at once I could turn everything over to her and stop worrying.

Melissa understood my wedding day vision at once, and better yet was able to communicate it to all my vendors so easily when I had so much trouble!

The stress of trying to plan my own wedding had turned it into such a negative experience for me, but once I met Melissa I was able to relax and enjoy the process again. Contacting Melissa to plan my wedding was the best decision I ever made. She is such a professional and so wonderful to work with. I couldn't recommend her more highly!

I NEVER write reviews but I need to express to future brides out there that Melissa Andre was the best descision my now husband and I made when planning our wedding!! With a Mother-In-Law very involved in the descision process Melissa not only was patient but gave us ideas that appealed to everyone both modern and traditional which made everyone happy. The best part was that from our initial meeting she got "our vibe" and what was important to us. She didn't waste our time taking us to 5 vendors for each item, she simply choose the vendor that best suited us as a couple and brought us there. This in our oppinion was fantastic! Who has time to sit through 5 vendor meetings for each item. Both working full time.. we didn't have this time. Melissa's selections fit perfectly. On the day of the wedding Melissa's team also did my hair and makeup which was flawless. She has some real talent working for her. I would also recammend booking beauty. In the end I can't thank her enough for making the process so easy! STEP 1 - Hire a wedding planner, hire Melissa Andre, it made our day perfect! THANK YOU MELISSA!

My husband and I agree that having Melissa involved with the wedding planning and execution process was the best wedding decision we made! Specifically the weeks leading up to the wedding were made MUCH less stressfull having Melissa involved. Melissa helped us deal with certain difficult vendors and also made sure every last detail was planned for and documented. Having her there on the day was literally a godsend. We actually had the worst case scenario of the photographer cancelling on the morning of. Melissa dealt with it immediately lining up a new plan and making sure that I never felt the stress. She was so easy going all day, all the while making sure that everything was executing to perfection!

We also had Melissa design the decor for the event. We knew we had a beautiful venue, but that something was missing. From our first meeting she understood our vision perfectly and she was able to the decorate the venue exactly to our vision and within our budget.

Also her beauty team did hair and makeup for over 11 women. Literally every single woman who had their hair and makeup done loved it! Myself and all of my bridesmaids are extremely particular when it comes to hair and makeup and the team was able to make all of us feel beautiful! I have never felt more glamorous in my life!

I am a huge control freak, and was actually considering doing my entire wedding alone! An old friend of mine highly recommended Melissa Andre, and after lots and lots of thinking, I finally decided to put it all into her hands - by far the BEST wedding decision I made.

Melissa is more than just a wedding planner, she really focuses on creating an experience. Every single tiny detail put into our wedding was so significant, it blew my mind!

Melissa was so friendly and kind, very easy to connect to. She was able to distinguish the exact vision I had, she made my dreams come true.

Melissa made my wedding memorable for every person present. She is so different from any other planner I have ever spoken to. All my friends envied my wedding and I even have a few engaged friends who insist on having nonetheless but Melissa plan their wedding.

I could not have chosen a more intelligent, superior, desirable wedding planner.

THANK YOU MELISSA!!!

With my husband and I both being A-type personalities and a little controlling, as the wedding quickly approached, we realized we needed to have someone act as us during the day when we could not. When we met Melissa, we immediately knew that she would be such a great help to us and we were definitely right! Melissa was so easygoing and made even annoying tasks seem effortless. Our day ran smoothly, with our family members, MCs, and guests all feeling relaxed and able to enjoy the evening.

Melissa was a true pleasure to work with. The details that she added to our day did not go unnoticed and I do not think we could have had such a beautiful day without her.

I would recommend Melissa to any bride looking for a stylish, attention to detail oriented, friendly and easy going planner. She made our day so wonderful!

DON'T TRY TO DO IT ALONE!!!!

I wondered if a wedding planner was necessary.....until I met Melissa Andre.
I quickly realized that having someone with so much great experience, wisdom, contacts, style, personality, flexibility, attentiveness etc., was essential to have for such a special day in my life.
Melissa thought of things I wouldn't have and helped me with all of the details, while letting me make all of the decisions. She offered the support and guidance that I needed to feel confident and RELAXED on my wedding day. Countless guests even sought her out at the wedding to compliment her on such a well organized and smooth running evening.

She was there to answer any questions I had.
She knew what I needed even before I did.
She is the most organized person I know, and made an itinerary that everyone could follow perfectly.
She felt like more of a friend than a wedding planner.
She was really really accessible for every little or big question I had.

She allowed me to relax and enjoy the most beautiful day of my whole life and I can not thank her enough :)

Melissa Andre came highly recommended to me from a friend. I cannot thank my friend enough for recommending Melissa. Melissa took my original idea for my wedding and literally transformed it into something so much bigger and better than I could have imagined. I really appreciated how quick she was to respond to my e-mails and I felt I could ask her anything. She was extremely professional and worked well with the venue and DJ I had chosen. She puts so much attention to detail into your wedding that she makes you feel like you're wedding is the only wedding she's planning. Another bonus is she works with the city's top vendors and knows which ones are best suited to the style of your wedding, which saves a lot of time and stress because you can trust the vendors she works with!

Where should I start?! Melissa is absolutely amazing. As I said at our wedding, I would highly recommend her to any couple who wants a gorgeous wedding. When I first contacted her, what I had in mind is day of coordination + hair/make up. But after she showed me a few weddings she did, I knew I need her design as well! She took in what we do and don't like and translate into my dream wedding. She is great with emails and very flexible, always eager to give us guidance, suggestions and feedback. She is not as rigid as other planners with # of meetings etc. If you hire her, she will help you anyway she can. All the vendors that she recommended, we loved!!! They all did such amazing job. So if you want a lovely wedding and lots of help and look gorgerous on your wedding day, go with Melissa Andre!

Melissa is absolutely the best person ever to hire for your wedding!!!
If you’re a type A /perfectionist like me you probably think that you don’t need a wedding planner or even a day of coordinator because you are perfectly capable of doing it yourself. That’s what I thought when I first got engaged. I manage large programs & budgets for a living so I thought my own wedding would be no problem. I originally contacted Melissa about her doing my hair & makeup for the wedding but after talking with her (and realizing how wonderful she is) I made an impulse decision to go with her for day of coordination (even though my mom thought I was very silly for hiring a day of coordinator). Wow, it was the best decision I made about the entire wedding. My fiancé (now husband) & I planned the entire wedding myself, visited countless blogs for inspiration, did the whole DIY craft & Etsy thing etc. but would have been miserable on the wedding day if it had not been for Melissa. She organized the decorations, make sure the tables were set correctly and styled the head table so that it was way more beautiful than I could have hoped for. She took care of making sure the ceremony went smoothly and we all knew where to stand & how to walk. She also made sure I got all the pictures I had wanted our photographer to take. The 2 vendors I was most happy with (Mango Studios for Photography and Bobbette & Belle for our cake) were both recommendations from Melissa. She even helped deal with some issues like getting our sound system to work & re-sewing my dress when the front pick-ups fell out making the dress too long & hard to walk in. Then later on when the clasp at the back broke she sewed the dress again! If you want to actually have fun & enjoy your wedding day you need to hire Melissa!! You only get married once so it should be the most enjoyable relaxing day possible. It goes by in the blink of an eye so why waste a moment of it worrying about anything!? I also couldn’t have been happier with the hair & makeup she did for me and the make-up her artists did for the bridesmaids, my mom and mother-in-law. Melissa is a wedding wizard & your big day will be so much better with her involved!!!

Melissa was absolutely amazing to work with! She is wonderfully creative, and designed our wedding beyond what we could have imagined. She really took the time to get to know us, so that both our tastes and interests were incorporated into our special day. Not only that, but she was just as enthusiastic and excited about our wedding as we were:) The vendors she recommends are excellent (e.g., Bobbette & Belle!), and very professional to work with.
Thanks Melissa for doing such a great job.... it was amazing!

Not only that, but she was just as enthusiastic and excited about our wedding as we were:) The vendors she recommends are excellent (e.g., Bobbette & Belle!), and very professional to work with.
Thanks Melissa for doing such a great job.... it was amazing! Read less

Melissa is worth her weight in gold...and then some...

From the moment we met at the Wedding Co. Show at the Carlu, I knew I had to hire her. She understood my vision for the wedding and took it to a level I could never have dreamed of.

Melissa’s creativity was put to the ultimate test when our venue had a major disaster and we were notified only hours before the reception was to start. She took charge and managed to rearrange a whole new event space at the venue (including bringing in extra furniture) in two hours, all the while doing this with a calm demeanour!

I am still getting phone calls, emails and texts to tell me that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thank you to Melissa a million times over.

I normally would never do this, but I'm so furious even 6 months after my wedding, that I feel obligated to warn other brides on such an important matter! Especially upset, now that I feel the lack of pictures of me on my wedding morning because of this company.

WARNING TO ALL BRIDES

This "company" completely ruined my wedding day. I went for a trial and paid cash for makeup for me, and hair and makeup for my matron of honour. They didn't allow me to take the artist's phone number, only to deal through Melissa. I asked if they had my address and everything else they need, and they assured me they did and noted the makeup artist actually lives nearby in the area where I needed her to be.

On my wedding day, the makeup artist failed to show up. I don't know what the real reason was for leaving us in a complete panicked bind, because no one at the company was responding that day. And when they did respond, they gave me two different and completely unacceptable excuses. Later I found a phone message from them (called the wrong contact number I gave them) saying the makeup artist went to the wrong address - which contradicts the excuse Melissa gave me, which was that the artist’s son had broken his arm. I’m not sure who the liar is, but someone is lying.

The worst is that there was absolutely no follow-up from the company with me at all. I had to contact Melissa a couple days later because I was leaving the country for my honeymoon. It doesn't matter what the reason was. Bad enough that she didn't show up and left us hanging, ultimately costing me more money for an emergency service from another vendor. But I also had a photographer and videographer who could not shoot me on my wedding morning (and therefore - nevermind being upset that I'm going to be late for my wedding - but I have absolutely NO photo memories of me or my family with me that morning at all!!! Instead, I have tonnes of very expensive pictures of my nephews and neices). This also delayed my wedding and threw off the timing for the entire evening. I was upset and in tears worried sick that I would be too late and the ceremony would have to wait for another wedding that was scheduled after mine!

Things happen. But it was how it was handled - I should say NOT handled - by Melissa and her employees. No one was available or could be reached that morning, there was no number to contact the artist directly, and finally when I reach someone they continuously told me she'll arrive "in 5 minutes." Which was not true, because THANK GOD someone near me finally had another artist jump in a cab at the last minute, and they STILL got to the house before her backup artist showed up!

The artist who saved the day had 15 minutes to do my makeup, and my family had to go ahead to the church without me. Worse yet, he was someone I had a trial with but didn't hire, which as you can imagine put me in a very awkward position!!

Melissa Andre ruined my wedding day, and then didn't even bother to call or email afterwards to apologize. When I contacted her for a refund, she told me the makeup artist’s son had broken his arm and so she was too frazzled to tell them she wouldn’t make it. The problem is – I later discovered a message on my home phone (not the number I gave them to contact me that day) from Melissa’s employee informing me that the makeup artist went to the wrong address and should be at the correct one shortly. The kicker? They then sent me a check to the wrong address – again! She also said she’d send me a makeup sample kit, but never did!

Stay away from this girl and her company. Don’t be fooled by her presence all over the internet and bridal magazines. They may be very good at PR and marketing themselves as experts, but they are obviously inexperienced and have no respect or regard for the importance of your wedding. On your most important day, you don't need this kind of worry.

Sure, she refunded my money - but how can I retrieve that morning, or replace those memories? How can I have those photos of me on my wedding morning now? How can she repay me for the expensive emergency service from the other makeup vendor or all the extras I had to tip to all the other vendors that day that had to wait because everything else was delayed?

One of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning was to hire Melissa and her team! The hair/makeup for both myself and all of my bridesmaids was beautiful and Melissa's help as my Day Of Coordinator was so valuable. My wedding day was even better than I possibly imagined, and a large reason why, was due to Melissa's amazing help.

For hair & makeup, she spent hours with me at my trial making sure that we figured out exactly what worked best and I really felt that she cared about making me feel as beautiful as possible. For Day Of Coordination she picked up immediately on how I wanted my wedding day to feel, and helped the day move along smoothly.

I'm so happy that I found her!!

We highly, highly, highly recommend her!!

Melissa is absolutely incredible! She coordinated my wedding and did my makeup and hair. Which means that not only did she make sure that everything looked beautiful and ran smoothly, but she was there to touch me up all day. A serious bonus ladies!! My hair and make-up looked fresh (and amazing) the entire day. And trust me, I am one picky bride!!!!! I never let anyone do my makeup, because, let's face it, i think i do it the best! Well, Melissa, you proved me wrong :) I have never looked as beautiful as I did on my wedding day.
Thank you! I am so happy you were there on our special day and I am so excited to have a new friend!

She is AMAZING! loved everything, have nothing negative to say. She's like a one woman show, hair-make-up-co-ordinating, she doe's it all and she does it perfectly. I am not a photogenic person so you know how sometimes the hair and make-up look great in the mirror and then you look back @ some pics and its like "ughhh" well not this time! everything was fabulous! from morning to night. and the pics i've seen so far are from amateur friends and family camera's we havn't even seen the professional pics yet. I would definitely recommend her to everyone. She won't let you down and she's not only just a vendor, she's a great person and will turn into your friend at the same time =) Its a bonus

She also is an amazing make-up artist. She did exactly what I wanted and went beyond my expectations - I did a trial with her and she listened to everything I wanted and tried it out with me and not rushing through things.

Melissa is truly heaven sent! I interviewed 2 other wedding planners before meeting with her and right away I knew Melissa was exactly what we needed. We were planning a big wedding, so when we hired her there was a sense of relief knowing that the wedding would turn out just the way we wanted it to! Melissa and I worked closely for months leading up to our big day. She immediately grasped our vision and suggested the perfect vendors to work with. Melissa was always super creative with her ideas and came up with some things we would never even have thought of (loved that about her)!

The day of our wedding was stress free (something every bride deserves to have) and of course Melissa took care of hair and make-up for me, my 7 bridesmaids, 1 junior bridesmaid and my flower girl. At first I was a little concerned about her taking care of hair and make-up on top of organizing everything that day, but she was on top of everything and didn't miss a beat. Like I said, I was completely stress free.

To this day I still have people talking about how beautiful our wedding was. Melissa has been able to create a lasting memory of such a beautiful day in our hearts and those of all our family & friends. For that, I'll always be grateful! Thank you Melissa!!!

Melissa was a wonderful addition to my wedding day and allowed me the time to enjoy all the details leading up to walking down the aisle and throughout my reception as well so I could worry about my speech and dancing the night away instead of all the little details. Melissa has great connections and saved me money on a lot of suppliers. She also took on the responsibility of managing all of them and she took 10 things off my list with one easy checkmark! To top it off, she is also extremely talented with hair and make-up and I couldn't have been happier with how she pulled together my overall look together. Looking back on all the decisions and costs associated with the wedding, Melissa was by far the best decision and spend we made. My advice to anyone planning a wedding would be that your entire experience leading up to the wedding and the big day itself will be so much more enjoyable with Melissa by your side.

Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and effort, and when you have spent 2.5 years planning it, you want it to be perfect.
I had initially hired Melissa to do my hair and make-up for my wedding, but when I found out that she also did same-day co-ordination, I hired her for that as well!!! It was amazing having her there that day to make sure that everything ran smoothly and it gave my husband and I the peace of mind that everything was under control and that we could just enjoy our special day.
Working with Melissa leading up to the wedding was amazing. Together we established an itinerary of how the wedding day was going to go and she followed up with all my vendors to confirm delivery times, etc.
My wedding day turned out perfect thanks to Melissa. Melissa and her team did an amazing job on my hair and make-up as well as my mom and bridesmaids. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you again!!!

5.0/5.0
Who: Susan & Andrea Guido
When: June 26, 2010, Wedding
Where: Thornhill/Markham
What: Hair & Makeup + Day of Coordination

Why: We originally booked Melissa Andre's hair and makeup services, but we quickly realized we needed someone to organize our day of coordination. Thankfully we did because our day would not have turned out as beautiful and seamless as it did without her attention to detail, professionalism, organizational skills and overall talent.

Hair & Makeup:
Melissa was very easy to work with. I showed her a number of photos of looks I wanted my bridesmaid to have and how I envisioned my hair and makeup. We did a couple of trials until we achieved my desired look. She can also craft a beautiful set of hair extensions! It made my thin hair appear long and luscious! In the end, it was exactly as I had envisioned.

How she saved our day:
What's one of the worst things a bride can get on her wedding day? A hideous monster pimple! I'm still thanking her to this day for concealing that thing!

Day-Of Coordination:
We had booked all of our vendors ourselves, but didn't give much thought as to coordinating everyone the day of. Melissa took care of covering every detail in an itinerary, which she communicated to all our appropriate vendors. She delivered all final payments to our vendors, so it was one less thing we had to worry about. Melissa also set-up all the seating cards, guest books, gifts, etc. according to how we envisioned our wedding reception.

How she saved our day:
We had a lot of issues with our wedding reception location, The Mandarin Golf & Country Club, on the day of our wedding. The coordinator at The Mandarin did a poor job of communicating with Melissa and a number of the things we had specifically asked for, The Mandarin did not deliver or forgot. Thankfully, Melissa and her assistant were still able to fulfill our original wishes despite this set back and we had them to thank for giving us our gorgeous outdoor marquee as we had requested.

Would we recommend Melissa Andre Event Design + Beauty?
YES! And we did recommend Melissa's event planning services to our friends, Cecile + Ryan, who were married in August 2010. =)

Melissa was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. She was always available, responded to my calls and e mails right away, and kept me calm. She organized the flowers and decor and understood my vision and desired look - something not a lot of wedding planners can actually do! Melissa also did my hair and make-up, and did a spectacular job!

Melissa, thank-you so much for helping us plan our special day. You were organized, amazing with our guests, so willing to help with everything you could to make sure everything ran perfectly. You kept us calm, happy and able to enjoy everything that happened that day. The wedding was beautiful and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We were so lucky to find you and looking forward to keeping in touch
