  • Planning a wedding is challenging under the best of circumstances. During a pandemic, it was among the most challenging logistical and emotional hurdles my wife and I have ever encountered. This is why we are endlessly thankful to Merida and her team for all that they did for us. Merida was professional, thorough, responsive, creative, and personable. She helped guide us through some very awkward moments and handled the intricacies of working during a public health crisis with grace. She oversaw everything from our switch of venue, the reduction of our guest list, the procurement of vendors, and the overall flow and details of the day itself. Merida ensured that what we needed was done, full stop. We are located in northern NJ and Merida’s location did not once impact her ability to meet with vendors or chat with us. She was exactly what we needed and my wife and I believe that she is one of the main reasons our event occurred as planned. We fully recommend her for your event. -... Read more

  • (Wedding date was a typo, we were married 9/26/2020) If a global pandemic isn't the ultimate test for a wedding planner, I don't know what is, but Merida was so wonderful and helpful throughout. We couldn't have gotten through it without her. Our plans were thrown out of the window (original date was May 2020), and she helped us brainstorm through our backup plan. She thought through everything we didn't think of in terms of the new COVID normal and was a true partner in our wedding. She was our partial wedding planner, but she filled in all the gaps that really brought our wedding together. She always made herself available when we had questions, or she promptly followed up when she was busy. We never felt neglected by her and on the day of, she went above and beyond. For example, on the wedding day the Google document we wanted to use for a group game was corrupted and we could only salvage with screenshots, and Merida stepped in and wrote the questions all out by hand! We end... Read more

  • I've watched Merida put together various Bridal Showers, Weddings, and receptions each one better than the last. She pays such close attention to detail and strives to give the couple the day of their dreams. Merida always makes sure she is available for any question or issue the bride or couple may have as they approach their big day!

  • Merida was absolutely amazing and accommodated any of our unexpected needs throughout the entire process. We tried to do most of the heavy lifting ourselves but once she stepped in it made everything else much more stress free. She even helped us deal with one of our vendors who wasn't so great in an amazing way. If it wasn't for her time management skills, the bride and her party would have probably been late but she built a ton of time into the itinerary to compensate for that. She also was well prepared with all the little things you don't think about like toiletries and heel stoppers. She was just overall such a lifesaver and we were able to fully embrace the day. The venue coordinator and photographer also commented on how great it was to work her. Thanks Merida and Laura!

  • I love Merida! My fiance and I were determined to pull off a wedding during the time of COVID-19 and Merida made it happen. Everything had to be adjusted from table sizes (ranging from 4 to 10), certain people needing very distanced seating, food allergies, a possible hurricane to the timing of everything day of. She helped get things from my house, my mothers house and was the main point of contact with the owner of the restaurant. I couldn't have made this happen without her. The rain even through us a curve ball the night before and Merida had a seating backup plan done at 11pm the night before. I would recommend her to any brides who needs someone that shows up, manages allll crises ( she glued my mother in law's fake eyelash on!! Now that's service! Sincerely, An extremely satisfied bride

  • We hired her a couple of months out from our wedding, when we started reading some awful reviews about our venue. We LOVE our venue, but they were newer and going through some major growing pains. Merida was familiar with the space, and after reading all of her reviews, we knew we needed to call her! After speaking with her, I knew she would be perfect to help us pull everything off, and we were right - our day was PERFECT from start to finish. Merida juggled all the coordinating with vendors arriving and dropping off, all the setup and timeline execution, and ran interference with tougher family members. She is sweet and funny, but not afraid to step up and let everyone know who's in charge, and we really needed that! She ran out and picked up a ton of beverages, cups, and ice for our wedding party when we realized that the venue didn't supply any of those things. She ran around all day making sure every detail was executed how we wanted it, and while she kept me posted on any las... Read more

  • My now husband and I hires Merida for planning since we both have fairly demanding jobs. Merida is not only good at her job but amazing to work with. She really took the time to get to know us and helped create a wedding that was truly our own. Merida is organized, responsive and has amazing vendor recommendations. Hire her! You will not be disappointed!

  • Merida was amazing. As a multiple-time bridesmaid, you’re always slightly unsure as to where you’re supposed to be and what you’re supposed to be doing during the day(s) leading up to the wedding. Not the case with Merida - she ran the show for the groom, the bride, their families, and bridal party. Everyone knew where they were supposed to be at all times, and more importantly, knew that she was the point of contact if anything went wrong. I’ve never been in a wedding where we were not only on time - but early. This gave everyone time to relax and just enjoy the day. Merida also brought a kit of wonders that was super helpful in multiple small “uh oh” scenarios that no one (except her!) anticipated. Hire her - you won’t be disappointed.

  • We hired Merida about two months out from our Philly wedding. Honestly best money spent for the whole wedding. I wish we had her from the get go. She was incredibly organized and helped to facilitate a timeline that allowed us to have a flawlessly executed day. She was the point of contact for all our guest, vendors, buses, etc. It really let our closest family and friends be stress free. We ran early the entire time which is unheard of in my experience as a bridesmaid. She came with a kit including a hangover cure, steamer and all the things you didn't know you needed!!!! Her assistant was an absolute doll and my entire family/bridal party was so grateful to have these ladies with us for our special day. HIRE MERIDA.

  • Wow! I just had my wedding last weekend with Merida as my planner! It was absolutely beautiful. I am a little controlling and don't like other people doing things for me, but Merida laid down the law, and made me relax and enjoy my day, and it was beautiful and gorgeous. Planning a wedding in the backyard is a lot of work, and I truly feel like I barely did any most of the time which was amazing! All of the decor and vendors Merida helped arrange were amazing, and she certainly kept my very large party of 13 groomsman and bridesmaids in line so I did not have to. I highly recommend Merida for a rather stress free, beautiful, and unique wedding!

  • We reached out to Merida when we were considering having our wedding on the East Coast (we live on the West Coast) and explained we needed a lot of support having this sort of destination wedding on our family's property back home. Merida responded VERY quick and provided some information on her packages and pricing. We discussed more of what I was looking for and she tailored her package and provided a very reasonable price for the amount of work that was needed. We set up a time to meet via phone and Merida was very easy going but straight to the point. She responds to emails quickly and gets started as soon as you decide you fit well together. Merida helped us realize how our budget would be allocated realistically and made sure we got what we wanted but was upfront if our expectations were over budget. Merida always had a few alternatives to help us get our ideas going but not break the bank. Unfortunately we ended up having to do our wedding on the West Coast, due to family prefe... Read more

  • Working with Merida was one of the best experiences in my life! She is very passionate about her work, and pays attention to fine detail, in EVERYTHING she does. She is extremely professional and can balance everything from vendors, to making sure everything is executed perfectly for your special day. There is no such thing that can go wrong to her! She has such an open mind and loves to see your vision through. Merida puts her heart and soul into her work, and I believe having her there the day of helped tremulously. If you are looking for a person that can listen, create, and beautifully execute your quirky or alternative idea, Merida is your woman for you! 5 Stars! 100%!!

  • Merida was amazing! She helped us have the best beach/Star Wars wedding ever! She was so knowledgeable and helpful with every aspect of the wedding, I made my decorations and she was happy to help make sure we got it all done and didn’t forget anything! I am so happy that she helped us, it was amazing to walk into the wedding and see everything looking exactly how I had dreamed it would! I absolutely recommend her for everyone, especially anyone with a wedding that’s a little out of the box! She will help you have your fun dream wedding! I can’t thank her enough!

  • Merida and her team are fantastic. She is organized, professional, positive, and fun. Although we only hired her as a day-of-coordinator, her involvement in the preparation of our wedding day was invaluable. If there actually was a problem on our wedding day, we had no idea because Merida made sure everything ran smoothly that we could just relax and enjoy the day. Not only is she a competent and talented professional whom you will not regret hiring, she’s a terrific person that you and your family will love, and will look back on, knowing your wedding day would have not been the same without her. Thanks so much Merida!

  • Merida is very kind and flexible, however I believe she could assist her clients more in the process of planning their wedding. Throughout the whole process I constantly had to remind her the details of my wedding, she would come to meetings unprepared or couldn’t remember where or when we were meeting. I felt that I had to manage her as well as plan my entire wedding. I was very disappointed in her services especially because she didn’t provide any resources to help keep us within budget. I created all of the tools we used from the the vendor list, and payment schedules to the rsvps and tables list. Additionally, I was disappointed that she sold herself as a designer and the design she provided was a google sheet of pictures from Pinterest which in my professional opinion is not how designers operate. Thankfully she did find a wonderful design team but that did cost us. On the day of my wedding she didn’t help me with pictures, couldn’t assist with my bustling my dress and an... Read more
