The Event by Merylin
We were looking into planning our wedding in Puerto Rico and after a very long search reading a milion reviews online and speaking/meeting with dozens pf event planners in Puerto Rico, we were suggested to Merylin. Immediatly upon our first phone conversation, we knew she was different than all the others. She was professional, funny, dedicated and certainly the one for us!! She continued to impress us and surpass our expectations via emails, phone calls and skype calls. She always was professional, prompt, personal, creative and engergetic. Unfortunately, after a few months we were not able to find the right venue due to our budget and decided on a New York wedding. A few months later, I contacted Merylin for help with my bachelorette party which was going to be in Puerto Rico. Once again, there she was impressing me with her prompt response and thoughtful responses and suggestions. I know how stresful planning a wedding can be, especially a destination wedding and trust me, dont look any further.... Merylin is the one in a million :)
I love The Event by Merylin! Merylin was wonderful, very helpful and instrumental in planning wedding!!! I'm so glad I decided to hire planner since planning destination wedding! I debated whether I should or shouldn't for a short period of time. My now husband said we didn't need planner and boy and am i glad i DID NOT listen to him! LOL! WE both say we are so glad we did and we don't know how we could have done it with our her! Merylin was hired as a day of ceremony planner only but she helped me and advised me so much before the day of ceremony! She answered emails, texts, and calls right away. She recommended other vendors and even checked to see if i was getting best price for beach furniture of vendor i contacted before i contracted with Merylin. She knew answers right away and if she didn't she would find out right away! She contacted all my vendors to make sure everything was in order and gave them final payments on day of ceremony. Thanks Merylin!!!! You did a great job and I was very happy with your services!
Merylin made our wedding planning and wedding day a very stressfree experience. She helped us select from a list of professional vendors who helped make our day very memorable and special!
She is honestly the best. I found her online looking trough alot of wedding planners. She is the most down to earth, intelligent buisness minded woman ever!! Our wedding was perfect especially coming all the way from Kentucky!!! She made our stay pleasent and treated us as if we had been friends for years. Highly recommend Merilyn for any occaision!!!!
Merylin was great at our wedding. She pay attention to every detail, and help us in last minute situations. She was very gentle, sincere, professional. As a couple we always need to heard the advice of the wedding planner, they know what is the best. And that's was Merylin has done with us.
Thanks for your help!!!!
Merylin did an amazing job! This was a destination wedding or weddingmoon (as she calls it) for us and we could have not asked for anything better! From day one she was very helpful and always answered questions at lighting speed. She took care of all of our needs in which we needed being so far away. She made sure the day before the wedding everything was in order and met with us in person to help with the marriage license process. All of her suggestions for venders were awesome. Everything that was planned went smoothly. She is a pleasure to work with. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special, we could not have done it without you!! We feel that we have a close friend when we travel back to Puerto Rico!!
Merylin is very professional and assertive! Thank you for your kindness, support and excellent planning. You ROCK!!! You work magic on my wedding! Thank you for all your hard work and for your great humbleness!! God bless you more!
Merylin has good personality and professional service. We had a destination wedding for only two of us. I was so happy and satisfied that she helped me for the short ceremony and photo shooting at beach and old San Juan area. I would strongly recommend her service!
Simply put - Merylin is amazing!
I live in Los Angeles & had my wedding in Puerto Rico...this distance added a lot more stress & fear during the planning process! Literally as SOON as I hung up with Marylin I felt like I could breathe again! Marilyn was a pleasure from the first time we spoke. Her enthusiasm and commitment to wedding planning & coordinating was so comforting. Her attitude was so possitive. Her confidence was so uplifting. I knew from our first phone conversation that I had a strong team covering for me on the island! She had great advice, good referrals, and was extrememly helpful, even before we arrived in Puerto Rico! Accepting packages that were shipped in advance, etc.
Our 1st meeting was very productive...she took detailed notes...and boy did we have specifics! My husband-to-be & I had every minute planned out for our cocktail hours, ceremony & reception...and she really kept up & took responsibility for ALL of it!
Our rehearsal...about 30 rambunctious people on a beautiful, open beach...all doing thier own thing. At first I was a bit concerned whether she could handle them or not, with her soft spoken, sweet self, but she came through! And did it in a timely manner.
On the big day? I had nothing to worry about. I was honestly able to tune out from wedding planning/control freak mode to BRIDE mode and completely enjoy every minute of my own wedding! I had no worries...I knew she & her assistant were ON IT and I was able to float through the entire event, stress free and happy!
I would definitely reccommend Maryin as a great asset to anyone's planning team!
Thanks again Marylin!!
Wow! Merylin did an amazing job despite all the hiccups due to Hurricane Issac. In March I contacted Merylin because I needed a wedding planner due to my mother having major surgery and unable to go to Puerto Rico. From the second I booked Merylin as my planner I kne w that everything was going to turn out wonderful. She has amazing vendors that were a joy to work with and she is a sweetheart herself. She went above and beyond to make sure that I got everything that I wanted and needed. I was a DIY bride living in Florida and at times I thought I wouldn't be able to accomplish my goals, but Merylin had some great resources when all my vases broke mailing them to PR and other extras that I needed. She is very professional and detail oriented. She met me the first day I arrived in PR and everyday up until the wedding. Her vendors are top of the line and I had no problems with any of them except one. The decorators really didn't want to work with me even though I was providing all the materials. One wanted to charge me 2400 initially just to put flowers in my vases and set the table. Eventually we settled on just placing my decorations on the tables and I purchased my flowers from a wholesaler across the Gran Melia who was outstanding.
Merylin is amazing! She was one of the best parts of our planning/ceremony experience! She went above and beyond what I had asked of her by making extra trips, calls, coordinating all of the vendors and making sure that everything was taken care of and went smoothly!I was behind the morning of the wedding, ans she was able to set up both the ceremony location and reception site exactly how I would have done it. She is incredibly nice, offers great ideas and suggestions without being overbearing and was a pleasure to work with throughout the process!
During our planning, my husband and I had researched and spoke to a few other planners and Merylin was by far the most accommadating.Come to find out that we definately made the right choice. I cannot express enough how wonderful and professional her services were. Outside of her professsional services, she has a kind and sensitive approach that make us feel so comfortable and taken care of that we didn't have to worry about a single thing. We had a small wedding for two with no family or friends at the event, and her and her team that she hired for us, (officient, photograher, etc.), were just as professional and accommodating as she. They made our day as memorable and wonderful as it possibly could have been and made it feel like we had friends with us after all. I could just image, had we had a larger wedding, how she would have make that just as big as a success as our wedding for two. I wish our friends and family could have been there, if not only to experience what we did in the event that Merylin provided for us. We thank her and the vendors, (staff) for all that they did for us and our hearts will always be with them for the special day that they provided for us. We had not only hired a wedding planner and her associates, but we also have made life long friends in which plan to see again on our one year anniversay. We love you guys and thanks again from the bottom of our hearts for the most memoriable day of our lives.

Our wedding took place this past April 21st. Merylin helped us make our dream wedding a reality. She was always willing to assist us in all the process, not minding the time and day. Merylin perfectly understood what we wanted and shared some ideas for our wedding day. Her punctuality, professionalism, organization and commitment are impeccable. Beyond our wedding planner, she became a friend. Thanks Merylin for making our wedding day a perfect one.
The Event by Merylin definitely went the extra mile to make my dream wedding come true. After having had a bad experience and having to let go of my original planner and only having 2 months left The Event took over and did an amazing job. Merylin really took ownership and gave it a 110% to make it all happen. Being in Puerto Rico which is so hard to get commitment from vendors to be on time and everyone in line, she really took control and mantained an organization of the event. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Best wishes for your company.
I'm very satisfied with her work and I recomend her 100%...
Merylin Andino is a true professional and renders high quality service. In addition, she has the sweetest personality that assures a client that everything will flow smoothly. I highly recommend her services and hope to keep in touch with her for any future event that we may have. It was a pleasure working with her.
Merylin you are THE BEST! My whole party thought the same. Professional, focused, responsive, helpful, a life saver and informative all in you. You pulled me through my panic attack and you released a load off my shoulders when I needed the help. Thank you.
I will start by saying Merylin immediately had solutions for what I was missing and resourceful when dealing with a budget.
I landed the day before my wedding and still needed my marriage license, liquor, and rehearsal. She zipped us through everything we needed in no time and we still had time to relax, have dinner and enjoy the company of our guests who also flew in from NYC.
I can't say enough appreciation I have for Merylin and all her support. You are awesome. Thank you again.
Overall experience with the service provided by Merylin was OUTSTANDING.
I was more than impressed with her professionalism, taste, planning, handling our budget and among soooo many many GREAT thing as our Wedding Planner. Working with Merylin, and us being so far away, she always maintained contact and kept us posted with everything regarding our most, precious date. Our Wedding date has have all of guest talking about it, still. We are more than happy to say that Puerto Rico has excellent and professional vendors, and Merylin was capable of gathering them for our Wedding. We couldn't have done it with out your awesome assistance, Merylin.
For ever thankful!
Melanie and Mark
Merylin is highly efficient and fantastic to work with. She quickly understood the brief and was extremely responsive to our many questions. She found some amazing suppliers for us in Puerto Rico and was always available to offer carefully considered and practical advice on how to manage our travel to the Island with our family and friends. Great job and thanks for all your help!!!
Our wedding vows were exchanged in beautiful Puerto Rico at the most breathtaking and romantic location imaginable. It was a fairytale dream come true! Planning a wedding ceremony in another country can be overwhelming, but Merylin's skillfulness and dedication made it possible. She was able to provide us with a custom wedding package that met our needs and budget. We were extremely pleased with her recommendations and resources. We wouldn't hesitate on recommending The Event by Merylin. With heartfelt gratitude...

Merylin is a great coordinator, she is just Amazing and incredible, you know that she puts her heart in her service of your special day because Merylin personally pays attention to all the details of your wedding day and the process. :)
It's always a pleasure to work with Merylin. From a vendor perspective....the coordinator should be highly organized and always project a sense of calm. They should know when to jump in and address a situation but also know when to fade into the background and let things unfold organically. She is great !!
