WE ARE LOVED
MDE is blessed to have some pretty fantastic clients, who have been more than willing to share their experiences working with Michelle and her team. We are so grateful for all of them!
There is seriously no better wedding planner than Michelle and her team. From the second I got engaged, I told my mom we need to work with her! I didn't even think about going to anyone else because Michelle is simply the best! Our wedding day wouldn't have been possible without all the help and ideas from Michelle. Throughout the entire planning process she kept us on track and provided us with the best advice to make our wedding day perfect. Her attention to detail, organization, and experience is what makes her so successful. She came into every meeting with such enthusiasm and excitement while still being extremely organized and professional. Her knowledge and expertise is unparalleled. She gives the best advise and I felt truly had our backs when it came to booking the vendors. In addition to helping us plan an over 500 person wedding, she and her team also made the day run so smoothly. They were there from morning till night making sure everything was getting done/happening when it was supposed to. My mom, my dad, and I could not have done this wedding without Michelle and her team. Thank you for everything you did to make our day run perfectly!!!!! Again, MDE you are the best!!!
I don’t even know where to begin to explain how thankful we are that we hired Michelle and Jill from MDE for our wedding! These girls went above and beyond to help make our wedding the most amazing day of our lives! I interviewed several other planning companies, but knew right away that I wanted to work with Michelle and her team. She was extremely professional, yet very personal and we connected right away. When Michelle first showed me an example of the timeline that they put together for their clients wedding days, I was very impressed but was not aware of how much time and energy it took to put together until we started on ours. These girls had the day planned out, down to every minute. I have great respect for people that pay that much attention to detail and are that organized. Michelle and Jill were always readily available to help me with any and all wedding tasks! Their well-informed opinions on vendors and many other things were extremely valuable in helping to plan our wedding. The experience the girls at MDE have gained over the years planning events in Chicago made me very confident in what they were suggesting to me. They know pretty much every vendor in the city and have worked with them one way or another so they knew exactly who I needed to hire to make our wedding day everything we imagined. While we had a few issues arise the day of our wedding due to weather, Michelle and her team handled them very professionally and none of our guests even knew that anything happened, and neither did we, until after the reception! These girls put us completely at ease the entire day. This was a gift in itself because we were able to completely enjoy our wedding day from the minute we woke up to the minute we left the reception. They were hands down the best investment we made for our wedding! I wish we could do it all over again every weekend! =) Thank you so much for everything MDE! You girls are rockstars!
We worked with Michelle Durpetti events for our wedding and they did such a great job! The sense of reassurance they provided helped us relax and enjoy our day so much more. They took away lots of stress because there was so much that they took care of so we didn't even have to think about. They were in contact with all our vendors and made sure everybody was on the same page with the extremely detailed timeline they created for our day. They made sure that our vision of what we wanted our wedding to be was brought to life. Highly recommended, they were truly a pleasure and a joy to work with!
I can not say enough wonderful things about the ladies at MDE. From start to finish they were amazing to work with! From Vendor referrals and suggestions to talking through my wedding vision they were the best. They answer emails quickly and efficiently and understood exactly what I was looking for. They truly were a dream to work with. If there were any issues the day of the wedding I was not aware of them, everything was pulled off flawlessly. These ladies became my second family in the months leading up to the wedding and I'm so thankful we had their services!
If you are looking for a wedding planner in Chicago - look no further! My husband and I worked with MDE for our wedding last November and they completely exceeded our expectations of a "day-of" wedding coordinator. From day one, they were there to offer us incredible advice and vendor recommendations. Michelle even offered to speak with my father, who was insisting that we do a receiving line, when I did not think that it would work! One month prior to the wedding, they completely took over - managing all communication with our vendors, ensuring we had thought of EVERYTHING, and creating the most amazing minute-by-minute timeline that I have ever seen! My mother and I had put together a lot of little details and personal touches for the day of and MDE executed them exactly as we had envisioned. Being the perfectionist that I am, I expected to be stressed leading up to the wedding and on the day of... instead, my friends and family could not stop commenting on how calm and relaxed I was. This is how every bride should feel on their wedding day and was totally thanks to MDE! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michelle and her team. Not only did they make sure that our wedding day went smooth as can be, but they were also such fun to work with! Thank you for everything MDE!
