Why Hire

Melanie Parent Events – Wedding Planner Winnipeg
1. This is more than our job, it’s our passion:

We love everything about the event and wedding planning process, and we aren’t afraid of the work that comes along with it. With our industry knowledge and expertise, we can make sure you enjoy the planning experience and create an event that you and your guest will never forget.

2. We take on a limited number of events

At Melanie Parent Events we value our client and vendor relationships. For that reason, we only accept a limited number of events and weddings each year. We believe that you deserve personal and undivided attention. For this exact reason, we never overextend ourselves.

3. You need help figuring out the budget

The budget is a stressful topic with most couples. Allow us to help with budget allocation. As professionals, we can ensure you spend it in the places that get you the most bang for your buck. We hire vendors all the time, so we know where the deals are and what things really cost.

4. You need help to recreate your vision

I’m sure you’ve been on Pinterest and have found a lot of inspiration. So much so, that you’re now overwhelmed and confused by what you think you want. As your wedding planner, we want to get to know YOU and make sure your wedding reflects your personality and personal style.

5. Knowledge is power

Because we’ve gone through this process before, Melanie Parent Events has the vendor relationships to make sure you’re working with the right people. We will make recommendations based on your budget and expectations while keeping your style and vision in mind. As a wedding planner in Winnipeg we are familiar and have great working relationships with industry vendors. Allow us to lead you through the process and ensure your confident in your decisions and design ideas.

6. You aren’t “all about the details”

When planning a wedding it’s all in the details. If creating lists, organizing meetings and returning countless phone calls and emails don’t appeal to you, hire a planner. As planners, we create personalized checklists to ensure everything is covered.

7.The average wedding takes a couple 250 hours to plan

Who has that kind of time between work, school, family, and friends? Wedding planning turns into an (unpaid) part-time job. Allow Melanie Parent Events to take the lead so you can make time for other important areas in your life. View our services and see how we can help you.

We couldn’t be more passionate about our clients and the events they allow us to be a part of.  Visit our Client Compliments page to see what people have to say about working with us.
