Melanie Parent Events Winnipeg

2018 Year in review


Big collaboration

We had an incredible year when it came to teaming up with other industry professionals. We had so many opportunities and incredible experiences, here are just a few highlights of 2018 for Melanie Parent Events Winnipeg:

HUSH Lookbook Collection:

I had the pleasure of planning and styling the HUSH lookbook for their new product line for 2019. This was a huge opportunity for me and I couldn’t have been more flattered when they approached me to do the planning and design. Having such an amazing company trust me with such a large project felt unreal. I knew I was able to knock it out of the park, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the magazine launch in early 2019.


Sweet Impressions open house

2018 was the official launch of what we hope will become an annual event, Sweet Impressions first ever open house! We teamed up with one of our favourite bakeries to show off some of 2018’s hottest trends by transforming the bakery into a wedding show room. Couples were able to come and meet with some of our favourite vendors and chat all things wedding while sipping champagne and enjoying a variety of treats. Styling and planning this event was so much fun and I can’t wait to do it again in 2019. Stay tuned for dates and details.

Creative styled shoot

Every year I try to plan one big styled shoot to show off my creativity and love of design. In 2018 we went all out and created this “Dusty Blue Love” shoot. Getting all the vendors together to re-create my vision was easy, I knew right from the start who I wanted to team up with. I couldn’t be happier with the results. This shoot is by far a favourite of mine.

We grew our team

Meet our Lead Coordinator Kristina

You might find Kristina to be a familiar face, and that’s because she has been with Melanie Parent Events since day one!!! But in 2018 she has taken on the role of Lead Coordinator. Kristina has been an invaluable part of the team and it was a natural and easy transition to make her a Lead Coordinator. Kristina has already executed so many gorgeous events I can’t wait to see what else she does for us in 2019! The sky is the limit with this one.


Virtual planning

From coast to coast

Just because you don’t live in Winnipeg, doesn’t mean we can’t assist you in planning your wedding. This year we had several virtual planning clients from coast to coast! Even with different time zones and busy client schedules, we made it work! Thanks to Skype and Facetime, we were able to go through the planning process “in person” every step of the way. Because these clients couldn’t meet with vendors, they felt confident knowing that someone in Winnipeg was looking out for them and making arrangements on their behalf. Checkout our services to see if what we offer is right for you!

Melanie was amazing! She helped us organize our wedding even if we live in Quebec. She responds quickly to her messages and is always available to help. She is very organized and will make sure your wedding day perfectly as planned. Very happy to have chosen her to help us plan our special day and would recommend to anyone. Thanks again Melanie for all your help, we had a blast working with you.

Intimate weddings

100 guests or less

We love to go big…. until we did intimate weddings this past year. Getting to be apart of intimate weddings with less than 100 guests is truly amazing. The best part of having a smaller event is getting to use a more unique venue! We had the pleasure of working at the newly renovated Pavilion and a Winnipeg favourite restaurant, Pizzeria Gusto! If your planning an intimate restaurant wedding, we want in on it!

In the media

Awards, nominations and publications

In 2018 we had so many wonderful media experiences and exposure. With an amazing winter and amusement park styled shoot, and a Fort Garry Hotel wedding all featured. We got couldn’t be more flattered that some of our favourite blogs wanted to show off our work.

We were also the humble winner of the Consumer Choice Award as best planner in Winnipeg!! How amazing is that?!! We are also nominated for Top Choice Awards and can’t wait to hear the outcome in early 2019. We couldn’t have done it without all our amazing vendors and clients. We are so appreciative for all your support and encouragement as we enter 2019.

  Thank you Winnipeg!
