After reading so many great reviews and receiving a recommendation from a friend, we used MLE for day-of coordination for our large (250 guest) wedding in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, this is not MLE's forte. From the outset, I explained to Merissa that our biggest issue was transportation, and I indicated that the reason I was in need of a day-of coordinator was because we had so many guests coming from out of town. I needed to make sure the day ran as smoothly as possible. Instead, the day was pure chaos. We hired 2 buses to run like shuttles back and forth so guests could get to-and-from our church, venue, and hotel at their convenience. Instead, guests waited on the buses for more than 40 minutes after church and another 40 minutes after our reception. Our reception was not over until 1am, yet (without warning) Merissa left at 10pm and told me she was leaving me with her 2 assistants. I was stranded at our venue until nearly 2am because the transportation was not coordinated properly (and because the assistants were unable to take control of the situation). In addition to the transportation nightmare (which was my worst nightmare), MLE failed to find my videographer before our entrances into the wedding. They lost my purse. Other vendors commented that the planners were "not present" the night of our wedding. I asked MLE to set up candles on the steps of our venue to create a dramatic effect. I paid extra for this service. The candles were set up by two different people who did not plan the set-up in advance or communicate what they were doing. The candles on the left were in a completely different pattern than the candles on the right. The steps looked ridiculous and the pictures in front of our venue are useless. Merissa has since indicated that none of this was her fault, as her job was to "manage family emotions." I did not hire a day-of coordinator to manage emotions. I needed someone to manage logistics, and MLE failed to do so.

We planned our Philadelphia wedding from Brazil, and only with the help of Merissa. She thought of everything, had great vendor recommendations, and was always available to address questions or pickup loose ends. There are so many little details to wedding planning that I never would have thought of or questions I would have never had an answer to. It would have been near impossible to pull off the wedding with so little stress without her. She and her team did an amazing job facilitating and coordinating everything, and they were wonderful to work with.

Event was planned well for the most part. Planner is very professional and is always will to go the extra mile to meet client needs.
An area for improvement would be working closer with the client to keep better track of the guest count and food orders.

Merissa Lynne Events, LLC responded with the following comments:

MLE's top priority on the wedding day is to make sure that everyone - bride, groom, their families and guests - are taken care of and happy.
With a guest list that changed multiple times in the days leading up to the wedding, and several times ON the wedding day, I don't believe that anyone could have done a better job of accommodating the estimated 15-20 additional guests that attended- unannounced -expecting seats and dinner.
However I DO believe, had it not been for MLE and the excellent venue staff, that the bride and groom would have spent much of their evening figuring out how to rearrange tables and find space for the additional guests.

Merissa is flat out phenomenal. She has this terrific gift of being so calm, yet she's in charge of every little detail with nothing left to chance. She helped us through a wide range of decisions and widened our perspective as to creative options that appeased everyone. I love her humor, her passion for her work and her gentle nature. We had an absolutely pitch perfect outdoor wedding at our home but as mother of the bride, I was dragging my heels all the way envisioning a hurricane blowing an elegant tent off to Kansas along with the cake and crystal. Merissa planned for every contingency and must have worked with the weather gods as it turned out to be a glorious day. You'll enjoy the planning and celebration of your special day so much more with Merissa as your guide!

Merrisa is WONDERFUL. Weddings are a time of celebration, love, family and friends. However sometimes the stress of wedding planning becomes a tad but overwhelming and some can lose sight of the reason why you are picking out colors and favors in the first place. Merrisa's creativity, amazing attention to detail, calming-nature, and can-do attitude ensures that your wedding day is about love, fun& cherished moments. We couldn't have held the wedding of our dreams without Merissa and her team of angels.

Merissa was such a pleasure to work with! I hired her as my DOC for my wedding. She allowed me to be completely stress free on my wedding day. Merissa and her assistant were very professional. They took care of everything! They even made my bed in my hotel room so it looked nice for pictures! I can't imagine how my day would've gone without them. I would highly recommend Merissa Lynne Events to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.

Merissa and her assistant Arielle were the best. She was able to answer all of my questions and reminded me of all of those little details we would have forgotten. She was extremely accomodating and never seemed to lose her compossure (I wish I could say the same about myself). The day of my wedding went as perfectly as the timeline she designed. If something did go wrong; my husband, our families and I had no idea. We were really able to enjoy the day and relax. I couldn’t have been happier with her.

Let's first mention that I am nowhere near the definition of traditional bride. I wore a deep purple gown, I had no clue what an escort card was and I definitely did not know the first thing about weddings. My mother really wanted to have a more traditional wedding while I just wanted a big party. That's when we decided to go for the wedding coordinator. Merissa Lynne events was nothing short of a life saver! I knew from our initial emails. that should be able to give both my mother and I exactly what we wanted. She and her team did an amazing job coordinating every last detail that I did not even know was a detail. When the big day came I had absolutely nothing to worry about and nothing to do but relax and look pretty! They made sure the event was the perfect mix of traditional for my family and the off-beat party that I had wanted. I don't know what I would have done without them and I'm not sure how other girls can have their weddings without a coordinator especially if they are as great as these girls were!
