  • We are incredibly grateful to Melisa and her team for their expertise and professionalism. We were lucky enough to have been working with Melisa before the pandemic and even luckier that she guided us on how to celebrate safely in these times. Because Melisa thought of everything in advance, we were able to relax and really enjoy!!

  • Melisa from The Event of a Lifetime knows how to make your event The Event of a Lifetime! Melisa is creative, organized and extremely easy to work with. She helped to plan my son’s Bar Mitzvah and she guided me through every step of the planning process. she listened to me and what my son wanted for the event, and she is plugged into all that is popular with the kids so she could provide advice and guidance on everything from venue selection, invitations (which were so amazing and creative), favors, dance floor giveaways, entertainment and decor. I highly recommend Melisa and would work with her again.

  • The Event of a Lifetime helped me plan my son's backyard Bar Mitzvah. COVID changed our plans drastically, and Melissa and her team made our day and night time party truly amazing. From the first call I had with Melissa to the final day of set up, she made everything run as smoothly as possible and made sure I was adhering to all the COVID guidelines. She referred me vendors to use that were reasonably priced and all showed up and did exactly what they said they would. She problem solved a major issue with the tent for me the day before the party and even up to the start of the party, allowing me not to worry! I can only say great things about The Event of A Lifetime. Thank you to Melissa and her team for their guidance and support throughout the party planning!!! I would recommend them to all.

  • Melisa's careful, thorough and creative planning made our daughter's bat mitzvah party everything we hoped for and more - even during the pandemic with all its uncertainty. Melisa pays attention to every detail and it shows.

  • Melisa helped to plan our son's Bar Mitzvah three years ago, which was perfection. For our daughter, the complications were vast...we cancelled our original plan due to COVID, moved the celebration to our yard, had to deal with ever changing pandemic rules, throw in the endless number of details for a party at home...the process was overwhelming. The end result was FABULOUS! Melisa not only managed the complex process with extraordinary thought, care and thoroughness....she did an unbelievable job bringing our vision for the party to life - the event was stunning in every way. Our guests - kids and adults - had the best night. Not a single detail was missed. And...she pulled this off on one of the worst weather nights of the season - torrential rain for the entire duration of the party! There is no better planner in the business. Thank you Melisa, we can't wait to work with you on our next celebration!

  • We’ve had Melisa’s help with 2 Bat Mitzvahs, 10 years apart… and we’d want Melisa’s help for every event we host in the future… she’s incredible! 3 things: (1) She’s an amazing organizer, making sure that we’re getting the best service at the best price from all of the vendors, and then coordinating their activity. (2) She’s a magical problem-solver, seeming to have found and implemented solutions before we even realized there was problem. From small hiccups (like, the cake delivery van being rear-ended just before reaching our site) to bigger hurdles (like, NYC inspectors shutting down a site just weeks before the event, or a pandemic requiring constant re-thinking of every aspect of a party)… she handles it all; it’s astounding. (3) As importantly, Melisa really listens to how our daughter and we describe hopes for the day, thinks about what we’re “really” saying (even if we don’t realize), and develops a vision that realizes all of that with so much m...

  • I engaged Melisa’s services to help me plan a Silver Anniversary celebration (mine) for 75-100 people. The Event of A Lifetime, Inc. had been HIGHLY recommended by a friend who had worked with them on her own large affair. I found Melisa to be very knowledgeable, organized, creative and responsive. After an initial phone call and emails, we met face to face to further discuss my ideas, preferences, etc. , and plan next steps. Melisa is a very warm, engaging person, and made me feel comfortable in her presence. She shared her valuable insights, ideas and know-how to help flesh out some of my initial ideas on various aspects of the party. Within a few days of that initial meeting, Melisa had already identified and narrowed down venue choices based on my criteria, and made contact with them on my behalf. She sent me links and info on them, and she shared her “inside” knowledge on the particulars of each. I was feeling very enthusiastic about the party and the prospe... Read more

  • Melisa with The Event of a Lifetime was amazing in planning my son's bar mitzvah. She provided organization, vendor recommendations, thoughtful pointers & reminders and a much needed time table to plan the big day. Melisa thinks of everything!! Melisa is extremely creative and in the know as to what is new & exciting for teen entertainment & activities. Emails and phone calls were promptly answered. As the coronavirus pandemic derailed our much anticipated celebration (lockdown occurred 3 weeks prior), she was proactive with alternative arrangements. Most importantly she is a wonderful partner in planning your "event of a lifetime".

  • Melisa Imberman owner of The Event of a Lifetime kept us calm and on track throughout the entire planning process. She took my vision and translated it into the wedding of my dreams (and then some)! Melisa’s relationships with vendors introduced us to the right people and got us the best service and prices which saved us time, money and stress. Melisa’s communication, creativity, organization and negotiating made planning our wedding stress free and enjoyable. She has an unparalleled attention to detail and continuously came up with original ideas to personalize our wedding. My wedding exceeded my wildest dreams and because Melisa & her staff were there we were able to enjoy it. I cannot recommend Melisa and her team enough!

  • Melisa at Event of A Lifetime, Inc was vital in helping me plan my Castle Chic Summer wedding. She was helpful in organizing the vendors contracts and scheduling the timing of events for all the vendors the day of. Her team was wonderful in keeping the whole bridal party and vendors on schedule the day of the wedding. They helped me think of creative ideas to make my wedding unique and symbolic to me and my husband. I felt very assured and at ease having them there by my side (especially Maura who was unbelievable!) I would recommend them to any bride!

  • As a millennial couple with a very specific vision, we found a perfect balance with Melisa between our over-the-top ideas and her decades of expertise. Melisa was encouraging, creative, positive, and honest. Her communication was consistent and thorough, and she helped us consider every aspect of what makes a party flow smoothly. Melisa worked with us for ten months leading up to the party and for day-of execution. Her wealth of contacts and important question-asking made for a spectacular anniversary party. Our family and friends were absolutely blown away by the event that we had and it would not have been possible without Melisa and Maura.

  • Melisa Imberman’s creative ability guided our journey throughout the entire planning process. She took our initial idea and translated it into the look we desired. Melisa’s excellent relationships with the venue we wanted and her vast network of vetted professional vendors allowed us to receive the best people at the best prices thus saving us both time and money. What I think I like most about Melisa is a combination of her creativity and her organization skills keeping us both on time and on budget. Working with experienced creative people who are also professional and organized is rare in this industry where many people are just one or the other. If you have an upcoming event and need the best in the business don’t hesitate to hire Melisa and her company The Event of a Lifetime!

  • It’s rare to find a business that’s as professional and dedicated as The Event of a Lifetime. Melissa worked closely with my daughter and I to help plan her Sweet Sixteen Party. Unfortunately at the last minute we had to cancel the party due to the pandemic. However, Melissa worked tirelessly with the vendors to help us get refunds and credits. Although we were disappointed that the event didn’t happen, we were grateful that Melissa went above and beyond to help rectify the problem. We look forward to working with her in the future!
