"It would take much more than a page to list all of Melissa's wonderful qualities and how happy we were that we hired her to help plan our Atlanta wedding from D.C. She is thorough, professional, classy, tactful, but most importantly, friendly and relatable. Melissa started with our venue search and stuck with us when we were trying to make the impossible wedding happen in North Georgia. We finally settled on an Atlanta venue, and she worked tirelessly to take care of the little details that went into the big day. My now-husband and I are both in school and working, and Melissa worked around our schedules for phone calls and gave us nudges when a big decision was coming up. I frequently relied on her for advice that was probably more in the Mom department than wedding planner extraordinaire, but Melissa never missed a beat.In fact, I think she may live for spreadsheets and organization. I *always* felt like Melissa had time to talk with me and she did a great job managing our vendors, particularly when we weren't quite communicating well with them. Melissa has a great relationship with the Atlanta wedding community and always took the reigns when I wanted/needed her to...  Click here to read full review.  - Blair, bride


“When the reality of the amount of time and effort it would take to fully plan my wedding set in, I knew that I would need some help. A friend recommended Melissa, and after our first coffee meeting I knew that I would be able to trust her with this big event. Looking back, it was the best decision I could have made. She was there from that moment on through as many of decisions as we needed through the final send-off the night of the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch, and each phase of the wedding preparation and day transitioned right into the next seamlessly. I couldn't speak more highly of her, she's amazing!” - Devora, bride

“I cannot express strongly enough how much I appreciated Nicole as the planner for my daughters wedding this past weekend!
Nicole was our Day Of Planner, but I honestly feel like she was there for us as soon as we hired Pretty Swell Parties.
She couldn't have been more calming, reassuring and organized in the most gentle and warm way. From the beginning stages when decisions were being made to the meetings and phone calls about the time line and final minutes of the party and even after, Nicole was the person I was always happy to see and hear from!
Nicole worked so well with all our vendors, who were also very impressed with her easy to get long with, soft spoken, calm and very amiable demeanor.
Our outdoor fall wedding was on the one day it decided to pour cats and dogs and be the coldest, wettest most dreary day, but Nicole handled all the stress of making alternate plans working with vendors, the families and guests to the last little detail with no hitches and we had the most amazing wedding in spite of the weather!
I told Nicole and truly believe she was worth every penny! I highly recommend Pretty Swell Parties and give major Kudos to Nicole for all her help! -Vivienne, Mother of the bride
