Marcia and her team are absolutely amazing! My wedding planning was in shambles when she came along and whipped everything into shape, keeping open communication with me throughout the process and providing me with organized too-do lists.

My wedding was beautiful and they made sure i had nothing to worry about, although the day was quite hectic. They even managed to find us a host of vendors at the last minute. I highly recommend them to anyone planning an event!

Our wedding day would not have been as relaxed and fun if we did not have Marcia and her staff of Merci Beaucoup Wedding and Events. The biggest compliment we have received from multiple wedding guests is that they were so surprised that our wedding started ON TIME! Timeliness is a sign of order and being prepared. This is the epitome of Marcia and her staff. Everything, from the planning to execution on the day of at the Wedding and reception was top notch. We really were blessed to have someone put so much care and time into our day. Marcia and her team can handle any event and I guarantee they will do everything in their power to make your even memorable.

We tasked Merci BeauCoup with rounding out all of our wedding planning and "day of" coordination. It was probably the best thing we spent money on during our entire process. They were receptive to requests, fully answered any questions we had, and took care of any issues that arose. Anytime somebody called us with a problem or a delay, we simply referred them to Marcia and her team and it was handled. On the day of our wedding we honestly couldn't tell you if anything went wrong because it never got to us. We were able to enjoy our day without worrying about the little details. We can't thank Marcia and her team for all of the hard work they did. They are at the top of our list for all events we have planned in the future.

MerciBeauCoup Wedding and Events was absolutely wonderful. Our wedding day would not have been as fabulous as it was without the expertise and guidance of the owner and lead event planner, Marcia. She was knowledgable about all aspects of the wedding ceremony and reception. She offered my husband and I wonderful ideas and suggestions to help make our day most memorable. Merci BeauCoup Wedding and Events was professional, pleasant, and dependable and I would gladly recommend this company to any of my friends and family for their wedding or special event.

Every detail of our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Marcia of Merci BeauCoup Wedding and Events helped us stay on track and on budget. She helped us incorporate the black and white damask theme we chose elegantly. My parents were overjoyed by Marcia's work and professionalism. My mom called her "a jewel from Heaven!" We would have never made it through the day without her help. I am extremely organized, but I could not have pulled off this wedding without a wedding coordinator. I highly recommend Merci BeauCoup!

Merci BeauCoup Wedding and Events did a splendid job on our wedding day. Marcia was very professional, organized, and really worked well with all of our vendors. Choosing them as our wedding day coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Marcia and her assistant made our day so memorable. She was invaluable in helping with the little details that arise. They weren't intrusive or too pushy and that made us feel so relaxed.

Do not wait until the month before your wedding to book your major vendors (videophotopher, limo, etc.).Make sure you meet with all your vendors face to face so you can get a clear understanding of what service you're receiving as well as all the cost that are involved(late fees).

If you give a task to your wedding coordinator, make sure you give a deadline and see the finish product a couple months before the wedding.

My mother and I decided to invest in a wedding planner to minimize on drama and so we would be able to thoroughly enjoy the experience of planning my wedding. I paid for the platinum wedding package -- I received all I expected and much much more!! Marcia and her assistants were a joy to work with. They were able to carry out what I envisioned for my wedding, were willing and able to communicate with my vendors for me, and organized my wedding in such a way that I was completely relaxed and could fully enjoy the entire wedding weekend without worrying about the small stuff. I was a completely laid back and happy bride and it was all thanks to Marcia and her crew. :) My husband and I were married on October 3, 2009 -- it was a beautifully planned day from start to finish and we have been receiving nothing but compliments on how everything was so beautifully planned to perfection. I have absolutely no complaints! If you want your wedding planning experience to be enjoyable, I suggest you invest in a wedding planner like I did -- it will make everything so much easier. You will be able to focus on the most important things and let WiseChoice Productions handle the rest!

Marcia and her entire team are wonderful. From Day 1 they embraced our idea of an Indian/Hindu wedding ceremony with some American traditions and ran with it. They were always on time and came up with amazing, memorable ideas that our guests are still talking about. They really took the time to know the couple and the families to create a wedding experience that truely fit their style. We had some vendors lined up after the engagement, but it was Marcia and her team that were able to line up possible vendors for us to choose from. They took care of all the communications with the vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page with what the family wanted. Everything turned out great!I highly recommend using WiseChoice Productions and know that I will be using them for all my future events!

Marcia is truly amazing!! We would consider her to be a God-sent angel to a stressed bride!! With less than four weeks of planning, she was able to coordinate with our vendors from miles away to make our day nothing short of a fairy-tale!! The days leading up to the wedding I couldn't help but worry that there was something I hadn't done or something that I was forgetting that would ruin our entire day. Marcia stepped right in and reassured me that she had everything covered, and she truly did!! Words can not express how eternally grateful my husband and I to Marcia for all she did for us!! We really wish we could say more about her and the services she rendered for us on that day, but there really aren't any words that would come close to expressing our gratitude!! We would definitely recommend Marcia Hart-Wise and WiseChoice Productions to everyone!!

We Love You,
Mr and Mrs. William Wilkins Jr.

Marcia stepped in one week before the wedding to assist our original planner, who unfortunately had a family emergency. We were thrilled at Marcia's enthusiasm, not to mention her professionalism and organization. She handled everything perfectly and made the day a wonderful one. I highly recommend Marcia's services for any occasion they are planning.

I want to thank Wise Choice Productions for all their hard work and finess in putting my wedding together in a little less than six months. I extremely stress out and had absolutely not one clue as to what to do to make my wedding day a success. So I did some research and come across Wise Choice productions in waldorf. Well the moment we met we immediately were insinc on what I wanted. Marcia Hart-Wise took control and allivated all the stress from me instantly. I was amazed at how she come through for me and I owe her so much. She made my day a wonderful free flowing event. I want to hire her for everything little thing I can think of. The staff and volunteers are very professional and Marcia goes beyond the call of duty for her clients. When I was in tears she was there to pull me up. She made my life so much eaiser through this planning process all the way to the production. Looking back if I didn't hire her my wedding would have been poseponed.

Thanks Marcia Hart-Wise and Wise Choice Productions; I owe it all to you and I will be sure to recommend you to everyone and anyone I come across too. You are a very special company and I pray for your success. Thanks for being so much more than a green eyed planner but our friends. Take care and much success in the Future.

Our decision to use WiseChoice Productions in the planning and oversight of our wedding day was the WISEstCHOICE that we could have made. Our coordinator, Marcia Hart-Wise, was very knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. She single handedly helped to make our wedding day the most memorable and stress free day of our lives. I was amazed to find that the day before my wedding there was nothing for me to do but pamper myself. I kept thinking, “I must be forgetting something.” I wasn’t. Marcia had handled everything. The day of the wedding was just as great. My only responsibility was to show up, get dressed, photographed, and enjoy our evening with family and friends. Marcia and her team ensured that the venue was beautifully decorated, and that all vendors remained on schedule and fulfilled their contractual obligations to us. We highly recommend WiseChoice Productions to anyone in need of event coordination.

First, it was not for a wedding that Wise Choice Productions provided such outstanding services. Rather, there were 3 very special and important events in our lives that they orchestrated for us within the last 2 years. THEY CAN DO IT ALL!! Marcia was lead planner for my wife's 40th Birthday party, the baby shower we had for my wife 8 months later (that's a long story... but YES my wife did look amazing that night... wink), and finally my retirement dinner earlier this year as I ended 20 years of service to my country as an officer in the U.S. Air Force. And I must say that from invitations, to decorations, to menu planning (and even personally catering the reception the followed my retirement ceremony that afternoon before my retirement dinner), to hosting/conducting the events, Marcia was a Godsend! Her approach was professional, yet so very warm and personable. Each event occured at times when there were hundreds of other stressors going on in our very busy lives, but with one phone call or funny (sometimes sarcastic) remark, Marica would calm my wife's or my nerves and reassure us that everything would go as planned. And without exception-- it did!! I could go on about how "Fabulous" she is... but she'll tell you that enough herself!! lol.... So I will just end by saying, no matter what event you are planning, let Marcia, her husband Zim, and Wise Choice Productions be the first call you make and the rest will fall into place! We love you! Byron and Monique

Dominique made planning my wedding effortless. She didn't try to impose her ideas on me. Dominique and Marcia made my wedding day a day to remember. Our family and friends are still talking about it.

Marcia was the best choice for my wedding! I cannot even begin to sing her praises because even a year later, I'm still impressed with the way she handled my event. (My wedding had approximately 220 attendees)

In a nutshell, after spending the last 3 days before the wedding preparing last-minute items and the day of the wedding, I crashed and burned! I was so exhausted that I couldn't move! Marcia came to my house in the wee hours of the morning and helped get me prepared for my day. The ceremony was late and she was excellent at trimming time from events in order to keep things moving. In spite of the ceremony being late, everyone says that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they've attended (it was at a country club in Maryland -- the ceremony was in a tent outside and the reception was in the ballroom inside) -- and I think they say that because events ran smoothly, in spite of me!!

Marcia is professional -- she has years of experience working with VIPs and she makes you feel like one too! She was willing to step in and help at every stage of planning -- she stuffed envelopes, printed programs and made sure everything was packed up and returned to my home after the ceremony and reception. She is very busy, but was always responsive to my questions and needs.

If I have another large-scale event, I would use her again without a second thought!
