Working with Melissa & Novelty Events was amazing. So much more than just having someone to help with the logistics of planning a wedding, we felt like we had a real creative partner in designing the wedding of our dreams. Melissa has a real eye for design + coupled with her incredible attention to detail / planning and you have the perfect wedding planner! The Novelty Events team handled our actual wedding day to perfection, we felt like we could sit back and enjoy the day from beginning to end, knowing everything was being taken care of. Cannot recommend them highly enough!! Thank You for making our day so perfect!

I feel like I’m about to write a birthday card for a best friend, and that’ll clue you in to how my words can’t do justice to how awesome Novelty Events is. To begin, my first impression meeting with them was that they would be there for me always and take care of me if I was stressed. Best. Decision. Melissa is EXTREMELY organized, composed, and is not afraid to get firm when it’s needed, which I loved because she is so spunky and I appreciated her honest opinion. She KNOWS the wedding business, and is capable of weaving in and managing new wedding cultures and ideas. She is highly responsive and all vendors praised how on top of it she was. The team executed and managed things very well, and me being a Type A personality and not wanting to let things go, I was able to trust them. On a personal level, Melissa is the brightest and sweetest human being. I felt like I had another family member there looking out for me. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking Novelty Events for your wedding!

If you’re thinking about hiring a wedding coordinator, Novelty Events is the way to go! With their unique event coordinating experience and meticulous attention to detail, you can have full confidence that nothing will slip through the cracks on your special day. Melissa is such a pleasure to work with and her love for design shows in the results. Wedding planning gets stressful with so many decisions to make, but hiring this wedding expert took away all of my worries. Everyone tells you to enjoy every minute of your big day. Thanks to Novelty Events I was able to be stress free and soak up every special moment with my groom, family, and friends. I couldn’t be more grateful!

Melissa was a dream to work with in creating and coordinating our wedding day! She truly made our wedding planning a fun and stress-free process and allowed us to lean back, relax and truly enjoy our most special day with zero worries. She managed all the vendor-communications so well and coordinated and helped design a truly magical day for us. We had a desert-destination wedding and Melissa made it super easy to manage things from afar by always being available to communicate and execute the planning process. Our day turned out to be as gorgeous as we had envisioned it to be an even more stress-free than I ever imagined because of the hard work of this lovely lady!

Novelty Events saved me and my wedding. I thought I knew what I was doing when planning my own wedding and I had no idea how hard it was going to be, the stress involved and everything that had to get done. Melissa sat me down and put my mind at ease. She’s kind, knowledgable, and has so many creative ideas that I never even thought of! My husband is Hispanic so there were a few Cultural differences and traditions that she knew exactly how to work with and make everyone, especially me, satisfied. I would highly recommend using Novelty Events as a wedding planner. They made my wedding planning experience smooth and my wedding day magical. Thank you!!!!

I wish I could give Novelty Events more than 5 stars! Melissa was truly amazing to work with while planning our wedding. I knew we would want a day-of-coordinator, but I really underestimated how much Melissa would do for us throughout the planning process. She was so organized, helped us stay ahead of everything, and had a solution to any small hiccup we encountered along the way. She was easy to get ahold of and quick to respond to any question that we had-big or small. I have a hard time asking for help...even when I need it...and Melissa was INCREDIBLE in not letting me take on too much. The minute she would hear me say “I need to call the [florist, dj, photographer, videographer, rental company, photo booth company, caterer, hair stylist, makeup artist, get the idea] she would take everything off my plate without me asking or even expecting it! Our other vendors made a point to tell us how awesome she was, and how much they enjoyed working with her. That really says a lot, considering they’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between. It really made everything that much easier knowing we were in the right hands, and everything was getting done without us having to stress. When it came to our wedding day, she gave her number to everyone in our wedding party/family at the rehearsal the day before, so we wouldn’t have to bothered with any question or concern on our big day. Everything ran so seamlessly...we didn’t have to ask our family or friends to help with anything because it was already taken care of. We were able to be present in every moment. Our guests even came up to us at the end of the night and commented how “great our coordinator was.” How often does that happen?? It was a great experience working with Novelty Events, and I would not hesitate working with them again!! HIGHLY recommend!!!!

Novelty Events went above and beyond in helping prepare my surprise engagement to my beautiful wife. They made sure the venue was taken care of, closely followed my vision for the day, and made sure no detail was missed. I proudly recommend them to anyone who needs any type of event planned!

OMG! I love Melissa (Novelty Events) so much! As a photographer, she makes my job so easy being on top of everything, precise attention to detail, suuuuuper kind, a visionary to create unique and personal setting to match the occasion and couple’s personalities and desires. Her ability to problem solve under pressure and with little time really show her experience and professionalism. We had an issue on our last shoot together. Days before the shoot, we found out the videographers were not allowed to fly their drone at the original location (and this was a must). Melissa was able to find a really rad venue where the videographers were able to fly the drone and get the *must have shots* and everything turned out EVEN BETTER than planned. **I seriously cannot wait to work with you again Melissa! I love your excited-yet-calm-get-stuff-done attitude! It makes the day so much more fun and enjoyable.
