We hired Melissa to help us the day of the wedding. From the beginning, Melissa promptly responded to our emails and was very helpful with planning the last minute details for our wedding. She created a very detailed timeline and was in touch with all of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. This made it so much less stressful as the wedding got closer. On the day of the wedding, Melissa and her assistant came to our venue early to help set everything up. They even checked in with me a couple different times prior to the ceremony to make sure I didn't need anything. They were also very helpful with the timeline the day of the wedding, making sure everything ran on time and went smoothly. They even brought my husband and me a plate of hors d'oeuvres from the cocktail hour as we were getting pictures! Without Melissa, I can't even imagine how the wedding day would have gone and how much more stress I would have had. We are so happy we hired Stylish Occasions to help plan our wedding!

If we could give Melissa a '6' out of '5' we would! She and her helpers saved the day when serious weather conditions threatened my daughter's wedding. We worked with Melissa over the course of 18 months -- she was, and is, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, calming, supportive -- all this without being controlling or overbearing. She simply makes what you want happen! If you are planning an event, please do yourself a favor and contact Melissa -- it will be the best decision you have ever made!!

We could not have asked for a better wedding planner! Melissa and her Stylish O team were absolutely amazing. We hired Stylish O for day-of coordination and all of our wedding planner. Melissa went above and beyond our expectation from the day we hired her until after our wedding day to ensure we received everything we needed from our vendors! Melissa was so helpful and involved in every step of our (over) a year long planning process. She make the whole process easy and worry-free and was willing to give her professional input but allow us to make our own informed decisions. Her assistant, Rachael that we also worked with was awesome and so responsive as well. Our wedding day was everything we've dreamed of, thanks to Melissa and her team for doing such an amazing job!!

We worked with Katie from Stylish O as our day of coordinator last weekend and let me just tell you what a huge help she was! From the first time we met Katie, she was calm, cool and collected and was exactly who I was looking for to coordinate my wedding. We met with her twice prior to our wedding and she would check in with me every now and then to make sure I was doing okay in the months preceding the wedding. She even helped me to find a videographer who was in our price range. Once wedding weekend arrived, Katie was there for us from running our rehearsal, to picking up balloons, to decorating the venue, pinning on boutonnieres, and keeping us on schedule! My husband and I do not know how we could have pulled the event off without all of Katie's help! I didn't have a worry in the world the entire weekend just knowing that Katie was there and taking care of any last minute issues. My advice to any bride-to-be.......hire a coordinator! It was the best decision we made and Stylish O is a great value! Fabulous coordinators at a fabulous price!

Where to begin....my husband and I had decided early on that we wanted a wedding somewhere central between our families, meaning the Harrisburg/Hershey area. We also knew we wanted a full wedding planner. About 2 months after our engagement I contacted two planners in the area we were thinking to get quotes and information. Melissa's response was helpful, honest, and informative. We decided to do a phone meeting with her and my parents to get all sides in discussion, and she was able to handle all of our questions with ease. From that point forward, Melissa was always available to answer questions, help find vendors, schedule meetings, etc. She kept finding more and more photographers when I just wasn't liking any/they were all getting booked up. She also helped plan and picked up a surprise for my husband the night before the wedding. As far as day of, she arrived early, coordinated between all the vendors, and helped get us going where we needed to be and when we needed to be. I was not worried at all the day of because I trusted her and Rachel to make it all flow.

I cannot speak highly enough of Stylish Occasions. I hired them for day-of services, and let me just say Melissa & Rachel did WAY more than "day of". I didn't even know how much was involved - and now that I know, I can say StylishO is a STEAL. This is the wedding planning crew you want. Period.

Originally, I thought "okay, I book a coordinator, and then they just coordinate vendors on the day of, telling them where to go." Boy, was THAT wrong - so wrong I feel ashamed even sharing that misconception. From a few months out we were in regular email contact, and Melissa clearly put quite a lot of time and effort into creating an incredibly detailed timeline, thinking through all the possibilities, catching every potential trip-up and advising me from her experience. She confirmed all the vendors the week before and made sure they had her contact info, did a conference call with my caterer and I...so many things! On the day of, if anything of significance went wrong I didn't even know it - she & Rachel managed a million details, and just knowing that they had it all under control left me so calm that I had people commenting on what a calm bride I was. Bottom line, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stylish O to anyone and everyone.

After planning a wedding, I have a whole new appreciation for wedding planners and couldn't have pulled off this unique idea without Melissa's advice and guidance! She truly is an expert in the industry and I couldn't recommend a better team to work with. She took the time to learn our ideas and formulate them into reality by recommending vendors that would fit our personality and our vision for the wedding day. She nailed it spot on!
I was most impressed with her calmness and flexibility as we ran into a few 'surprises' with the venue the day before the wedding. After finding out that the art museum that we were hosting the reception at would not have art work on the walls, she worked with her team to decorate with paintings and decorations that we provided. She even offered to call some local photographers as a last minute alternative. After meeting with her a few weeks before, I knew that we would be in good hands and could rest assure that the venue would be perfect…it was! Most of our guests commented that they figured we requested the art to be taken down so we could decorate with our own style…that was a huge compliment!
We would have never been able to pull this off without the help and suggestions from the best wedding planner in this side of the Mississippi! Thank you for making our day so special!!

Thank you Andrea! Your wedding was amazing! All the personal touches really brought in your personality and the guests all loved it! I'm so glad we were able to dress up the museum after the fiasco with finding out they had no artwork the day before! The guests never knew it though! Can't wait to see all the professional detail photos!

I used Stylish Occasions for my Center City Philadelphia wedding for "day-of coordination". First of all, they were much more affordable than any other wedding planning business I could find in the city, even with their small travel fee (since my wedding was relatively far from their base location). Melissa was quick to respond to my initial emails and did a consultation with us over the phone. At first, I wasn't sure that a coordinator would be necessary since I had already booked my vendors and my wedding ceremony and reception was all in one venue. After speaking with Melissa we decided that it would be worth the extra money to have a smooth and stress-free wedding day- and we were very glad we did. She assigned Katie to work with us. In the months preceding the wedding, both Melissa and Katie were very responsive to any general questions or advice regarding the wedding and even offered advice to our officiant- a friend of ours who would be officiating for his first time. The week before the wedding, my now husband and I met up with Katie to discuss details. She was very pleasant and took her time with us. She also let me know that she contacted all our vendors to make sure they would be at the venue at the correct time and location, and even provided them with a timeline for the day Katie came to Philadelphia the following Friday for our rehearsal and was very patient with our particularly rowdy group- I was definitely glad she was there to take charge. Katie was back in Philly early the next day ready to go. We were very grateful she was prepared for a few bridesmaid dress malfunctions. She executed everything I asked perfectly and seamlessly communicated our family photo relocation at the last minute. As someone who can be very picky, high strung and anxious, I was able to be very relaxed all day and enjoy one of the best days of my life. Having someone there to help with all the little things made such a big difference. Highly recommend!

I honestly can not say how fabulous Melissa is enough. I decided after getting engaged that I wanted to have a destination wedding. I met with Melissa and immediately she got my vision. I would have never been able to do it without her. Our wedding was at a private villa in Costa Rica. Melissa managed to make our wedding flawless in a Spanish speaking country where she didn't know any vendors. She responded to all my emails in minutes and always took care of EVERYTHING. Every vendor she found from makeup to photography (who is Clane Gessel and also amazingly ridiculous!) was fabulous. My mom and I got to have a stress free wedding day while Melissa dealt with all the details. I can honestly say my wedding was even better than my Pinterest board, all thanks to Melissa. Hiring Melissa was the best money we spent on the wedding. Do not get married without her!

Melissa managed to make our wedding flawless in a Spanish speaking country where she didn't know any vendors. She responded to all my emails in minutes and always took care of EVERYTHING. Every vendor she found from makeup to photography (who is Clane Gessel and also amazingly ridiculous!) was fabulous. My mom and I got to have a stress free wedding day while Melissa dealt with all the details. I can honestly say my wedding was even better than my Pinterest board, all thanks to Melissa. Hiring Melissa was the best money we spent on the wedding. Do not get married without her! Read less

We hired Melissa shortly after our engagement as we knew we would be planning our wedding remotely. We also haven't lived in the Lancaster area for over 20 years so we really needed Melissa's expertise and advice on the local wedding vendor options. One of Melissa's strengths is her network of wedding professionals. We were very satisfied with everyone she introduced us to and it cut out much of the legwork which we appreciated greatly. I am self-confessed, proactive, "control freak" so I probably did not lean on Melissa as much as I thought I would, but it was still comforting to know that she was there for me at ANY time during the year of planning. From simple etiquette questions to using social media to help me find how to accommodate "clip-on" earrings for my flower girls, there is no question that Melissa can't answer. When the wedding weekend was drawing near, it felt great to hand the keys over to Melissa who followed up with all of my vendors on my behalf. Her day of coordination was fantastic as well - our venue created numerous issues but Melissa shielded us from every single one of them, so the day was perfect to me and my husband. Melissa is professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to any bride looking to get married in the Lancaster area!

Melissa and Stephanie at Stylish Occasions were such a crucial part of my special day! I struggled with wether or not I needed a wedding planner in addition to the coordinator the venue provides but I am so thankful I choose to hire the girls at Stylish Occasions. I am not the most organized person and probably the worst planner so having Melissa in my corner was such a comfort. She was very organized and covered every base even things I would have never thought of. Either her or Steph were right by my side throughout the whole day willing to help with anything. I definitely recommend them to anyone. They are so sweet and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Melissa and Steph!!

Melissa and Emily provided day-of coordination and so much more! From the moment I contacted Melissa, she provided expert guidance through prompt responses to all emails and phone calls. She recommended vendors, answered questions, and helped to keep me organized. She sent regular check-up emails, just to see how I was doing and to offer assistance.

On my wedding day, Melissa and Emily arrived about 3 hours before the ceremony and stayed through until the end of the reception. With their help, I was able to relax (well, mostly) and focus on being the bride. They made sure that the vendors arrived and delivered their goods, that family members were cared for, and that the bridal party remained organized. They made sure everyone knew what to do, where to go, and when to be there.

Hiring Melissa at Stylish Occasions for our wedding day was hands down the best decision we made in the planning process. Two weeks before the wedding, we sat down with her and handed over all our major responsibilities. She did a great job of confirming all vendors and answering any last minute questions we had.

The day of the event, she was amazing. She was there at every turn, anticipating any need that we had. She leant an ear when there were any problems, she kept the schedule running, and I was truly able to sit back and enjoy my day - something that I know a lot of brides are not able to do.

Melissa was professional, friendly, and me and my family loved working with her.

Melissa and her team were amazing to work with through the entire planning process! I would highly recommend a wedding planner for anyone who is looking to have a relatively stress free planning process and wants to really enjoy their wedding day. Melissa made planning a wedding in Pennsylvania while living in DC easy. Her and the team helped us with every step of the process from setting a budget, deciding on a venue, selecting all of our vendors and coordinating with all of our vendors the day of. We thought planning a wedding remotely would be difficult but Melissa was able to provide us with ideas and recommendations on vendors based on the style/look we were trying to achieve which saved us from having to do all of the research on our own. Throughout the year and half planning process she was extremely responsive and flexible. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, she ensured everything went smoothly, so we didn’t have to worry about anything. We could not have picked a better planner!

I hired Melissa on my own, as a wedding planner was the one place we were told we wouldn't get financial help. By the end of the rehearsal, my family couldn't stop talking about what a great investment she was! Melissa was quick to answer emails, responded with awesome vendor recommendations, and always had a smile on her face. She checked in with me often to make sure things were moving along, and had great ideas for me.

On the wedding day, she saved us from more than one potential disaster by delivering a last minute bouquet, pinning my dress more than once, and going to get more beer when we ran out! At one point, i even felt my hair starting to fall out and when I turned around, she was right there with bobby pins.

I had Melissa for month of coordination, and I'd hire her again and again!

I've organized events before, and the problem is you don't get to actually enjoy them while they're happening because you're too worried about all the details and making sure your guests are taken care of. By hiring Stylish Occasions, all that was taken care of! We met ahead of time, Melissa offered GREAT advice that made our event even better than I'd imagined, and on the day of the even, I actually was able to have FUN, because she was there keeping everything going between the caterers, DJ, guests, etc... I couldn't recommend her more highly... I'd hire her again in a heartbeat.

We could not have made it through the planning process without the help of Stylish Occasions. We chose the complete package, which cost less than other planners in the area, but we certainly didn’t receive less! Stylish Occasions gave us everything we needed for a great price!

We knew what we were looking for, but we would not have found it without Melissa’s help. Our ideas came to life through her. Every step of the way, Melissa and her team were there with advice and options. They found our (perfect!) venue and handpicked our vendors. Melissa gave me options for the DJ, florist, cake baker, hair, and makeup, and I went with her first choice every time. She very quickly learned our personalities and had a knack for knowing just which vendor would suit us. Anytime we needed anything, she was just a quick email or text away.

Her flexibility and organization were essential to us, especially when my work life became complicated. She was able to keep things going and communicate with the groom so I didn’t have to worry at all! She was patient in our times of indecision, helped guide us to the best choice for us, and was never, ever pushy. She clearly wanted us to have things just the way we envisioned.

We were planning semi-long distance and we wanted to combine some intercultural aspects (she found us a fantastic Indian restaurant) – and everything came together without a hitch. Our wedding day itinerary was busy (outdoor ceremony with a horse-drawn wagon and carriage, 2 caterers, cocktails in one barn, a bar-opening ceremony, a tree planting ceremony, reception in another barn) and she and her team kept everything running smoothly. We were able to enjoy the day without worrying about the details!

We had the wedding of our dreams and have Melissa and her team to thank! We could not have made a single more important decision for our wedding than choosing Stylish Occasions.

I was more than ecstatic with Katie and Emily! They made sure everything went smoothly for me and Doug and our guests. I did go up to them and told them to have some fun and go enjoy themselves when I saw they were still at the reception so late into the night! :-) After the wedding, I was asked if anything went wrong by co-workers. I had to think and then came to the conclusion that the answer was no! They handled everything so well that even if something did go wrong, I never knew about it and it was taken care of before anyone became aware of it.

Since I planned most of the wedding by myself, it was so nice to be able to pass the reigns and enjoy myself during my wedding rather than worry about all of the details. If it weren't for Katie and Emily, I don't think I would have had the magical day I did.

We hired Melissa and her team for "day of" assistance for our wedding. I didn't think that I would want or need a wedding planner, but the venue that we chose did not have anyone in place to ensure that everything was set up and would run smoothly, so I knew that I would need help in order to stay calm! I met with Melissa a few times leading up to the big day and we exchanged emails periodically. She was such a huge help the week before our wedding when Hurricane Sandy came through - she made sure to touch base with each of our vendors to ensure that they were able to provide their services and she was truly my calm in the storm!! The day of the wedding, Melissa took care of setting up the reception venue, which was done perfectly. We had a snag when one of my bridesmaids' dresses wouldn't zip, so Melissa came to the rescue with her sewing kit and helped to sew her into the dress! She also kept the recpeption moving along as it needed to, reminding us of our timeline, without being too pushy. I truly can't say enough good things about her and it's a great value for what you get!!

I was connected with Katie in order to provide "day of planning and coordination" for our wedding. I first met Katie in person about a week and a half prior to the wedding. Katie went through the entire day with me, step by step, helped me to create a schedule, and also helped me to address items that I hadn’t even thought of. Throughout the next two weeks, she patiently worked with me as I relayed instructions for the day and asked her questions and her opinions on what she thought would work best. She contacted all of our vendors to relay the schedule for the day and address any questions that they may have. The
night of the rehearsal dinner, Katie met us after the dinner to pick up all of the decorations and instructions for the following day. We even gave her all of the payments for our vendors to be distributed so we wouldn’t have to think about it on our wedding day. The day of our wedding (as far as I know!) went off without a hitch thanks to Katie; even if there were any issues, I never heard about them because I’m sure that she handled them. It was such a relief knowing that I had Katie there to handle everything. She even touched base with me the morning of the wedding to let me know that everything was going smoothly. I consider myself a very particular person; I had worked so hard on all of the details of our wedding that I wanted everything to come together perfectly. With Katie’s help, our wedding exceeded my own expectations. I was floored when I first walked into our reception. Everything came together so beautifully and was set-up exactly as I asked. Throughout the night, Katie made sure that everything went smoothly and helped us transition into all of our big events (announcing the bridal party, speeches, first dance, etc). At the end of the night, she packed up all of our gifts and any decorations that we would put away early and asked if there was anything else she could do in order to be helpful before leaving. We were so lucky to have her!

Stylish Ocassions is great! They helped me with my wedding in October 2012. They were amazing from the beginning... Answering any email, with any silly questions I had, and they also set us up with all of our vendor referrals and meetings! As it came closer to the wedding, they confirmed all of our vendors for us, and Melissa even came to the rehearsal and helped make sure everyone knew what to do and when to do it! On the day of our wedding, they were there from start to finish, making sure that I was happy and didn't have to worry about anything! They ushered the bridesmaids into the church, in order, and made sure everything was in place! After the ceremony, they went to the reception site and finished setting up the decorations. They finished the centerpieces, hung paper lanterns over the dance floor, consulted with the vendors throughout the afternoon, and even brought the wedding party some appetizers while we were finishing up some pictures (which was so helpful- we were starving!!). They made sure everything went on schedule according to the timeline, and assisted in setting up the sparkler send off at the end of the evening! They even packed all of our gifts into my parents car and all the other decorations.

Stylish Ocassions is great! They helped me with my wedding in October 2012. They were amazing from the beginning... Answering any email, with any silly questions I had, and they also set us up with all of our vendor referrals and meetings! As it came closer to the wedding, they confirmed all of our vendors for us, and Melissa even came to the rehearsal and helped make sure everyone knew what to do and when to do it! On the day of our wedding, they were there from start to finish, making sure that I was happy and didn't have to worry about anything! They ushered the bridesmaids into the church, in order, and made sure everything was in place! After the ceremony, they went to the reception site and finished setting up the decorations. They finished the centerpieces, hung paper lanterns over the dance floor, consulted with the vendors throughout the afternoon, and even brought the wedding party some appetizers while we were finishing up some pictures (which was so helpful- we were starving!!). They made sure everything went on schedule according to the timeline, and assisted in setting up the sparkler send off at the end of the evening! They even packed all of our gifts into my parents car and all the other decorations. My wedding day went off without a hitch and I can honestly say that it wouldn't have been as perfect without all of their help!

I chose "The Helper Package" from Stylish Occasions. I wanted to plan most things on my own; however, I knew how important it would be to have help along the way. Melissa and her team were exactly what I was looking for! She helped to make all of the details that led up to the big day so much easier. She was always there by email or phone for me to bounce ideas off of or provide an unbiased opinion. Her vendor referrals were exceptional and saved me much time from narrowing the vast selection of venues, florists, and musicians. She listened, helped, and guided me through the wedding planning process with ease, and even reassured me when I would have a nightmare about details of the wedding. (Which did happen!)

It was a blessing to meet her and have her be such an integral part of the planning and wedding day. She truly went above and beyond our expectations. She and her team even stayed past their obligations to carry heavy floral arrangements from the venue into my parent's hotel room once the reception was over, so that my parents could relax and attend the after party.

You will know once you meet her why she is so great at what she does- because she is a calm, detail-oriented person who loves helping to make the dreams of Brides and Grooms become a reality. She also has a heart of gold and is involved in many things in the community including Make A Wish Foundation.

If you are wanting to reduce the stresses of your wedding day, hiring Melissa and her team will ensure that the Bride, Groom, and Parents can thoroughly enjoy the day. I would highly recommend Melissa and her team!

As the mother of the bride, this was the best value of anything I purchased. Melissa and her staff were such a help at every turn of the process. What I loved is that they never made the decision for you, they researched your ideas, gave you your options and gave very well qualified advice based on the their motto - you do it once, we do it everyday . . . . and boy does that show. I am not one to relinquish control but the wedding day, I could actually enjoy the entire day because she had everything covered, I mean everything -- It is obvious this is not a job to her and her staff, it's their passion.

Melissa and team are absolutely fantastic!!!! We worked with her for our 9/2/12 wedding at Landis Valley Museum. Melissa is a perfectionist and will help with every last detail of your day but has a very calm exterior so she is able to handle everything behind the scenes without making you feel alarmed or anxious. As we were in DC and could only come home during select weekends, she coordinated all of our meetings with vendors and any follow-up we needed with them to ensure everything was set. She was there the entire day of the wedding enabling us to relax and just enjoy the time together. There always are some hiccups or last minute things that crop up but Melissa was able to handle everything (including alerting the shop where i purchased my dress that i forgot my head piece and they ran over a selection of 10 for me to choose a new one). The existing relationships she has with vendors ensures that you can maximize your wedding budget and takes much of the leg work stress out of the process. Working with her was truly a wonderful experience!!!

Can't say enough about Melissa. We hosted our own reception so we were responsible for finding and coordinating all vendors. She not only took over managing the entire process, she has connections with the best vendors in the area <-- all her recommendations were spot on! She kept us on track with hundreds of pre-wedding tasks and took a lot of stress off of us. If you want a great and memorable event, seriously, it starts with her.

Melissa and her staff were invaluable in helping me plan my wedding. I purchased her "Helper" package because I wanted to be hands-on and plan it myself with a little "help" along the way. Melissa was knowledgeable and helpful, but not pushy or overly involved so that I lost my chance to plan myself. It was great to have an expert to ask when I wasn't sure about something - even the stupid little things! Working with Melissa was like having your best friend or sister help you plan your wedding, except she has all the connections and knows who to choose as a vendor without blowing the budget.
Most people asked why I had a planner even though I was planning my own wedding, believe me, Melissa was worth it. To have the peace of mind that someone else is running through the details and helping you remember all the parts is invaluable. Melissa recommended some fantastic vendors I never would have found without her. Loved working with her - you will too!

I was going insane planning my wedding in only 6 months. I thought I had a lot of things planned when I met with Melissa, so I hired her to be my support and speak to the wedding venue staff since I was having difficulty with them. I also needed someone to bounce ideas off of. She agreed to the job right away and had no problem being there for me through so much more. I had so much more planning to do than what I had originally thought. She was excellant, and responded to emails right away. Melissa was available for every appointment (even at last minute) and always offered advice. She was professional and supportive and I highly recommend her to other brides out there. Definitely hire a wedding planner because it is well worth it.

Melissa was wonderful, especially on a wedding day that will most likely be the craziest ever weather-wise! In addition to providing referrals to local vendors and assisting with various details throughout, Melissa braved the SNOW in OCTOBER to provide "day-of" services at our wedding. From rearranging arrival times for vendors to standing in the snow holding an umbrella while coats and boots were thrown in her arms, Melissa made the day run as smoothly as was possible in the unexpected weather. I certainly could not have pulled the day off without her and would recommend her over and over!

In the short time that we knew each other, Melissa did a great job anticipating our needs and was an excellent facilitator for our daughter's wedding and reception. She calmly arranged the time tables that we all needed to get through the day. SHe displayed kindness, patience and most importantly, the ability to communicate with so many different personalities. Melissa tied everything together so perfectly! It made that "special day" a great success!

We got engaged in August 2010 and wanted to plan a summer wedding. We started looking for a wedding planner late August/early September. I e-mailed a few people, and Melissa was the first one to get back to me. We were married in July 2011 and worked extensively with Melissa and her assistant Katie.

At our first meeting I was unsure if a wedding planner was really necessary. We live in Maryland and were having our wedding near my family in Lancaster County. After we spoke with Melissa and Katie it was clear we needed a wedding planner. We didn’t quite realize everything that went into planning a wedding, and were confident that they were the people to help us.

Melissa helped us find a venue and all of our vendors. She also negotiated between us and the vendors and negotiated our contracts. Trust me- you need Melissa. The last thing you want to do is negotiate contracts before your big day.

Since we live out of state Melissa also gave us a few suggestions for vendors and coordinated meetings. We wanted vendors who loved their job and were good at it, and Melissa found us those people. We never would have found those quality vendors if we hadn’t been working with Melissa. She also helped us find vendors that were better and cheaper than the most expensive vendors. She knew exactly where to go from flowers to cake to buying a dress to getting the dress altered!

Melissa and Katie made the lead up to the wedding and the wedding day run smoothly. Her and Katie answered e-mails quickly and they received many e-mails from me regarding anxieties about the big day and our plans. They made sure our wedding day was stress free. We had such a great time that we are ready to do it all over again next year.

I would recommend working with Melissa for a small wedding to a big wedding to an upcoming event. She knows the right people, and is good at what she does.

Being a wedding planner myself, I know the importance of having a wedding planner for day of services. Because I'm in the industry, I decided to create my old hollywood theme and plan all of the details of our wedding. However, I knew that on the day of the wedding I did not want to be the one running "the show." (no pun intended). I wanted to be a guest at my own wedding and know that all of the little details I had put into place were in the hands of a trusted professional. Melissa and her assistant Katie did a fabulous job of ensuring that our 275 person wedding(which had quite a few different elements to keep track of) ran as smooth as possible. We are so happy that Melissa and Katie were able to play a part in our special day and would recommend Stylish Occasions by Melissa MiVille to anyone. Great job!!!

It was truly a pleasure to have Melissa as the wedding planner for our daughter's wedding. In the preparation she was instumental in helping us focus on details and we were impressed with the suggestions she came up with to solve any questions or problems that came up. I especially appreciated her help working with vendors in getting last minute details worked out. We received many compliments from vendors of how nice and professional they thought Melissa was to work with. I don't know how we would have made it through the rehearsal and the actual wedding day without Melissa. At the rehearsal, from organizing the bridal party procession to knowing where everything was to be set for the ceremony, it was a relief to leave everything in her capable hands. Througout the wedding day all the long and endless list of details we had planned she took care of perfectly. And as I told her I am well aware that I didn't even know half of what she did! I just know I was able to completly enjoy the day because I knew Melissa was behind the scenes taking care of everything! Because of Melissa's help and guidance our daughter truly had the wedding of her dreams! Thanks again Melissa!

Melissa was without a double, an invaluable part of our wedding. The weeks before the wedding she helped us focus on details and answered any questions that we had. Days before the wedding she contacted our vendors making sure last minute details were finalized and everyone was ready to go. The dress rehearsal and wedding day Melissa was unbelievable. Whatever we asked her to do, we knew it would be done efficiently and effectively and did not have to think twice about it. I know my mom and I could enjoy the day that much more because we knew Melissa was taking care of everything for us. I am sure there is so much she did that day that we don’t even know about it, but what I do know is Melissa helped make my dream wedding come true!!!

Melissa was a great help on my wedding day, I really can say the day would not have been such a success without her. She went above and beyond what she was hired to do for the day of services; everything from helping me and my bridesmaid set up chairs the morning of to keeping us running on time for the reception. Melissa even had a wedding first aid kit which had about anything we would need for an emergency during the day and it came in handy more than once. Melissa and Stylish Occasions was a great choice for my planning services and if you think you don't need a wedding planner think again you don't even realize how much they do on that very special day to make your life easier! I would use Stylish Occasions again in a heartbeat.

She was very organized, professional and friendly from beginning to end and she made our wedding experience painless! Thanks Melissa!

Melissa was so helpful with all the last minute details of planning, and the day-of I didn't have to worry about a thing. It was amazing to walk through our venue and see all the little details she executed so perfectly while I got to primp and relax before the ceremony!

I hired Melissa from Stylish Occasions because I knew ahead of time everything that needed to go into planning and executing our big day. Best decision I ever made (even though a lot of people didnt agree with my choice to hire a wedding coordinator)! Melissa was incredibly helpful from start to finish. From her vendor suggestions, to budgeting, to dealing with any issues that came up, to executing all of the details that were so important to me to help bring my vision to life. Not only are her and her crew great at what they do but they are genuinely good people who always showed up with smiles on their faces. On my wedding day they made sure that I had absolutely everything I needed, from a drink in my hand to a change of shoes. We also had a bit of an incident where one of my bridesmaids dress' broke (the zipper completely split) but Melissa was there with her trusty sewing kit and sewed my bridesmaid into her dress! She even made a late night run for me to taco bell since I asked her to pick up tacos for my husband as a surprise when we made it back to our room from a long night of partying with our family and friends. When we got into our room she had arranged the tacos into a heart on the table with all of the hot sauces in the middle, my husband was so happy! I would and will recommend Melissa and her team at Stylish Occasions to anyone who is planning a wedding. They are absolutely amazing and my wedding wouldnt have been 1/2 as beautiful without their help!

My wedding was held at an open venue, which means I was piecing many different vendors together to create a tailored wedding event. I needed someone to help me on the day of the wedding as well as with some of the planning. Melissa was a tremendous asset in helping me pull off such a big event. She is resourceful with recommendations, you definitely need a planner like Melissa if your event is not a cookie cutter wedding.

Melissa is your planner if you are looking for someone who is able to:
-keep you on task
-keep you on budget
-help you stay focused and calm during the process
-and friend during your wedding planning because it can get really overwhelming.

She was helpful in so many different ways! I do not regret hiring her! She was well worth it! :-)

Melissa made our wedding so much easier to plan. We live in NYC, but we got married in a back yard in Central PA. She made excellent suggestions for vendors, coordinated the vendors seamlessly, answered all of our questions about the process, helped us stay focused on necessary tasks, and did all of this within the framework of a big picture vision that she helped us design.

She was pleasant, professional, and generally responsive to our emails and phone calls.

On the day of, she was helpful and also had a calming temperament. If we had one qualm on the day of, it's that Melissa's regular assistant wasn't able to make it and the person who she brought to assist did not add much value or take some of the last minute stresses off of the hands of family that was helping.

Melissa was easy to work with and very responsive to questions asked through email. She was willing to share her thoughts from previous events, in order to ensure that everything ran smoothly on the day of our wedding. In addition, her emergency kit came in handy as she fixed the straps on a bridesmaid's dress that broke, helped pin up my bustle, and sewed a button back on to my dress that fell off. She also made sure that each of the musical guests we had at our wedding received our thank you gifts without even being asked to do so. Overall, she helped to make sure our night ran smoothly.
