"My wedding pretty much would not have gone the way it did if I didn’t hire Melody. I don’t have any aunts/cousins to help decorate like a lot of people do so I knew I needed a coordinator. I originally hired a local coordinator in Rochester to decorate and help coordinate vendors for the day of, since we couldn’t get into our venue until 8am the day of our wedding. She was awful. I sent her emails asking her very simple questions – how many candles she suggest I get for our head table was one; and she basically told me she didn’t have time to answer my questions because she was busy with other weddings. After that I was pretty disappointed in her service and attitude that I had to find someone else. I met with Melody a week after I’d fired my original coordinator and I knew immediately I wanted to hire her. She came so highly recommended from so many people on the MN Brides page, and a lot of people told me to not even look anywhere else once I found Melody. Everyone was right. She was so responsive to every email I sent, no matter how small or big the question was, she always found an answer for me. I pretty much planned my entire wedding out myself, including writing the ceremony, and Melody executed my vision perfectly. If anything went wrong with our wedding day, I had no clue. Melody and her assistant were there for everything I needed, including bringing me champagne when my glass was almost empty. I couldn’t recommend Melody highly enough – she should honestly coordinate/plan everyone’s wedding."

"I'm not sure I can put into words how helpful Melody and her team were from our first meeting thru the week AFTER our wedding day. Melody was WAY more on top of things than my husband and I ever could have been with our busy schedules. From thoughtful questions on day 1 to execution of every detail on our wedding day, they covered every base and left nothing ignored. They were an integral part of the success of our day and we are so thankful that we chose Events by Melody as our "day of" (really felt more like 'month of') planner. If you are having any reservations whatsoever, ignore them and hire this team."

"We worked with Events by Melody as our "day of coordinator". Going in to it we were looking for someone to take the pressure off our families that day, but Melody and her team went above and beyond. They were so much more than the "day of" support we were expecting. She kept me sane in the weeks leading up to the big day and I was able to sit back and actually enjoy our wedding day knowing she had everything under control. Thank you ladies!"

"I used Events by Melody for my day of coordination, and they did not disappoint! Melody was awesome to work with and I REALLY appreciated her prompt responses to all of my questions. Also, Rachel and Tyler were AWESOME!! We literally don't know what we would have done without them. Without a doubt, this was the best money we spent for the entire wedding. Rachel was so attentive and on top of everything that was going on! Nothing was missed and nothing went wrong! (That I know of!) I am so thankful for Melody and her team and she really has an amazing thing going on! I am going to definitely recommend Events by Melody to all of my friends who get married in the future."

"Melody Hall is WORTH IT ALL! If you’re considering a wedding planner, or planner for a corporate event, just know you can’t go wrong with Events by Melody. On May 19, 2018 I made the best decision of my life marrying my husband. My next best decision was having Melody and her team there to run my big day. Melody is extremely organized and knows the answer to everything. (Literally) I’m so glad I did partial planning and day-of coordination because times have changed and Melody knows all the latest modern wedding trends. Instead of searching through hundreds of blogs for answers, Melody was just a text or call away. She is always very fast to respond and can hook you up with some of the best, most economical vendors in Minneapolis. Melody truly goes above and beyond for her clients. When I was putting together my invitations, she proof read them for me and made suggestions on wording until it was perfect. There’s nothing better than having a planner as you approach your event. Melody did all the communicating with vendors, planned the logistics, mapped out our timeline and even handed out our vendor tips so we didn’t have to worry about a thing! All our vendors loved Melody and got along with her very well! Melody is very fun to work with and she’s the backbone you need on the day of your event. I will forever stay friends with Melody and will rave about her for the rest of my life! If your date is open, I’d book it before it’s gone. She’s the best value you can get in a planner and I know how fast she books. Melody, thank you from the bottom of Jake and I’s hearts for making our special day so perfect. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful day. Thank you AGAIN for using shout wipes to clean the train of my dress before I walked down the aisle!!! You are AMAZZZZZING!"

"Art Force worked with Melody for our annual open house and she did a fantastic job coordinating and facilitating the day and leading up to the day. We had many obstacles during the planning phase that included needing to relocate the open house and Melody was able to lead us through the process seamlessly. I highly recommend working with Melody on your upcoming event or wedding!"

"If it weren’t for Melody and her team (Maggie AND Tyler!), I know our wedding day would not have gone as well as it did. Her team did all of the small things that you may not think about (transporting items, setup and breakdown of both ceremony and reception, etc), and even MORE since we had a blizzard. When the bridal party bus got stuck in a ditch, my maid of honor turned to me and said, “I don’t know what to do,” and without skipping a beat I said “call Melody!” Melody organized a convoy of vehicles to pick us up at the bar and bring us to the reception, and kept all of the vendors in the know of where we were so we didn’t have to. Once we all got there, she worked with all of the vendors to adjust our ever-changing schedule, and made sure every detail was accounted for. My wedding day is true testament that even if you plan for worst case scenario, it can ALWAYS get worse. I hired her for peace of mind, and boy did she deliver! If I could give her 10/5 stars, I would!"

"I can't say enough what a help Melody and her team were. I hired her as my day-of coordinator, but she was tremendously helpful through the whole process. Helping us through an issue with our room blocks early on, and answering loads of questions about what to do in sticky situations. I had a small, nontraditional wedding and her presence helped fill the void of a wedding party. She felt like a friend through the planning process; the kind of friend that doesn't get annoyed hearing from you every other day with 10 "this or that" planning questions (so, the best kind of friend). I would recommend her to anyone!"

"The best decision I made in regard to my wedding [other than marrying my husband;)] was hiring Events by Melody. I'm a bit of a control freak and was determined to plan the whole wedding myself. I made my own invites, centerpieces, etc.. and I was proud! But when the wedding was ~2 weeks out, the pressure started to sink in. My husband emailed several coordinators and Melody responded quickly, had a great price and was extremely professional. Over the next two weeks, Melody was unbelievably helpful. She confirmed the details with all my vendors (final counts, arrival times, pick up times, etc). The day of timeline she created didn't leave a single detail out and it helped keep my wedding party in check all day. She set up all of our decor, place cards, etc. without question.. and to top it off: When my husband and I got up to our hotel room at the end of the night, she had cleaned it and left a personalized parting gift that left me literally in tears because I couldn't have imagine how stressful the day would have been without her. Melody asks questions when she needs to, but also has the confidence and style to execute on her own without bombarding the bride. If you are reading this I am confident hiring her will be the best decision you make as well."

"My company, Primped (onsite hair and makeup) has worked with Melody and her amazing team on multiple weddings. It always gives us a good feeling hearing we are working with one of Melody's couples. She is extremely organized and prompt to respond. We know that she takes excellent care of her clients and that the big day will go smoothly knowing her team is working with the wedding day couple to coordinate the countless factors that go into planning a wedding! We highly recommend Events by Melody!"
