1.0  wedding management

Are you a type-A couple, crushing your wedding planning, but looking for someone you can trust to step in and take over all of your hard work? Maybe you'd rather not burden your loved ones with any setup or takedown on your big day?

 

Our Wedding Management package (aka month of coordination) is for you! We're here to iron out those final details, allowing you to entrust us with the rest. Sit back, relax, and dance the night away while we handle everything on your wedding day!

what's included

  • Development of a production schedule and wedding day timeline, and distribution of both to all vendors

  • Oversee and manage all vendors during the ceremony and reception, ensuring the day runs according to your timeline

  • Set up and tear down of wedding ceremony and reception décor

  • On-site coordination for up to 12 hours

...and more!

We felt so relieved when she took the reins a month before the wedding, as we chose the month of package, but felt so supported for the entire year of planning.

 

Working with Mel was an absolute dream - being from the states, we knew we needed a wedding planner with local connections to ensure a beautiful wedding in Banff. After interviewing a few, we best connected with Mel, who is detail oriented yet relaxed (which helped with our stress!), kind, knowledgeable, and so so good at planning and adding little ideas to ensure our day went perfectly. Mel's communication was INCREDIBLE, often responding within 24 hours and she was always available for a quick zoom if needed. We felt so relieved when she took the reins a month before the wedding (we chose the month of package, but felt so supported for the entire year of planning). It has been a week since our wedding and every single guest has commented on how lovely the day was. I have no hesitations recommending Mel for any event planning and hope you consider her for your own wedding!

You've started your wedding planning journey, secured your venue, even locked down some core vendors, and have a pretty good idea of what tasks need to be completed - but now...you're stuck. Our Wedding Management & Design package is a combo package of planning and design, where we take your wedding vision and help bring it to life. We create your wedding aesthetic, choose your colour palette, and design everything from table top layout to ceremony backdrop, and everything in-between.

 

We'll also help with the areas you're scratching your head over, and guide you towards the end goal - marrying your best friend. Think of this partial planning package as our answer to everything you want, without the extras you don't need!

what's included

Everything from our Wedding Management Package plus:

  • Full event design, from concept to execution, including one site visit

  • Assistance with booking all vendors and contract review

  • Planning meetings, for areas you need the most help with​

Melissa Alison Events was absolutely incredible! From the very beginning Melissa is super comfortable to talk to and knows what she is doing.

 

She was with us every step of the way in the planning process, and gave us so many great recommendations to help us plan the perfect day. Her and her assistant set up our ceremony and reception and made it better than I could have imagined. She was very organized throughout the whole process and made our wedding day so much easier and stress free. If you want a wedding coordinator that will go above and beyond for you, we highly recommend Melissa!
