  • Made the wedding planning process so seamless!

    I cannot recommend Dhalia Events more! Melissa and Deliece are truly pros. I went into the wedding planning process thinking that I would have everything under control, but they go above and beyond and helped me with details that I wouldn't have even thought of. They made the process so seamless and really planned everything perfectly, so during the wedding, we were able to fully relax and enjoy the night. In addition to Melissa and Deliece's help throughout the entire process, Antonia's help on the day of the wedding was crucial to its success and the whole team really made our wedding absolutely perfect.

    Deliece & Melissa were integral to the success of our beautiful wedding, and life savers in their day-of coordination of the event. I selected a ten week package where my fiancรฉe and I selected our vendors and personalized the event to our tastes, but in the two and a half months leading up to the big day they dove in head first to get a handle on every detail and help us polish off any items on our to do list that we were struggling with. After hours of meetings to extract information that had been swirling around in my brain for a year, we were provided with a minute by minute timeline of the day, along with an entire decision making workbook that lead us through ceremony choices, first dance planning and a comprehensive item inventory to make sure no detail was left behind. They provided a budgeting workbook that made my little accountant heart flutter, and offered guidance based on years of practical experience working events and seeing how guests congregate and react to specific elements. Once their package kicked in I was able to pass off tasks that were stressing me out and know that they were being handled completely. Their additional day-of team member, Antonia, shadowed me (the bride) for most of the day and acted like a fairy godmotherโ€”handing me an already opened bottle of water or much needed electric fan, provided hair pins out of thin air, tackling my complicated bustle, and generally being warm, pleasant, and comforting in moments of anxiety. She melted into the background when I was on, and offered a protective enclave to sink back into when I needed a minute. The Dhalia team was flawless in their execution of the plan, and tactful in their handling of complex family relationships and herding of guests. Their pricing was clear and uncomplicated, and they were happy to answer straightforward questions with concise answers and no awkwardness or pressure to spend more than planned. Alanis Morissette prepared me for the possibility of rain on my wedding day, but Dhalia made sure my vision still came together perfectly! Thank you so much!!

    Melissa and Deliece make a truly amazing planning team! We had a long (2 year) engagement and booked Dhalia Events as our planners roughly 18 months before the actual wedding day, but that didn't stop them from going above and beyond from the start. Not only that, they were always extremely organized, receptive to feedback, and wanted to make sure they understood exactly what we wanted/envisioned for our special day. From helping organize the budget, to corresponding with vendors/venue, to being absolute rockstar day-of coordinators, we couldn't have been happier with our choice to book Dhalia. Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts for making our beautiful wedding run so smoothly, Melissa and Deliece!

    After I got off the phone with Deliece to learn more about Dhalia Events, I immediately knew they were the one for us. Working together with Deliece, Melissa, and the Dhalia Events team made our lives so much easier as we had been struggling to move forward with planning our wedding since we live in CA but having a wedding in NY. The monthly check-in meetings and all of the research and expertise they provided us were so well-organized and super helpful. From deciding our vendors and all the way to the day of our wedding, Deliece and her team were always friendly and professional, keeping you engaged and on track with everything! They eased all of our anxiety and worries and made sure that our wedding day would be perfect. I cannot recommend them enough, they were an amazing team to work with and easily the best decision we've made. It was an absolute pleasure to have them by our sides for our big day. Thank you so much for everything!
