If you think planning a wedding is tough... try planning a wedding from a different country at a venue you’ve never been to. I can honestly say, though, that working with Melissa was the best wedding-related decision that my now husband and I ever made. She went above and beyond to help address any worries I had with our destination wedding planning and made me feel confident and at ease. Melissa is organized, responsive, detail-oriented and extremely professional. When it comes to weddings, she really knows her stuff. I would recommend Eco Chic Affairs to any bride or husband-to-be looking into wedding coordinators as an absolute must. 5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
There’s not enough time in the day nor words sufficient to say how incredible Melissa is as a person and wedding coordinator! We were planning our wedding in Victoria from Seattle and working with new vendors and absolutely couldn’t have done it without Melissa! As others have said, bringing Melissa and Eco Chic Affairs on board was hands down the best decision we made. She shared our vision from the start and helped us navigate decisions to keep our wedding as local and sustainable as possible! Not only is she amazing at her job, but she’s a joy to work with and a great person. Wedding planning can be seriously stressful and she brought laughter and fun to the whole process. Our wedding day was so special and magical and Melissa made that happen. We cannot thank her enough and will honestly miss working with her!
“Words cannot describe how wonderful our wedding day was. From our initial meeting right up to the big day, Melissa helped guide us through the process. Our goal was to create an as green wedding as we could. At first it seemed like a big challenge but Melissa offered us tips on how to include environmentally friendly decor, what to avoid and connected with the venue on what items they could source locally for our menu. Her enthusiasm and professionalism put us at ease and we knew without a doubt our wedding was going to be stress free. Melissa’s attention to detail and ongoing communication with us and our vendors was excellent. Not only did she rock our wedding day and the set up, when we arrived at our hotel the night before we were greeted with a note and some organic goodies! As wedding vendors ourselves, we knew exactly what we wanted our day to look and feel like. Our emphasis was on family, friends, fun and minimal waste. We see a lot of things tossed out at weddings and knew we wanted to have as minimal of an impact as possible. Melissa was in tune with what we wanted to create and helped execute our vision. If you are looking for someone who is kind, fun and passionate about eco friendly weddings, Melissa is your planner.
Having Melissa coordinate my wedding was handsdown the best decision we made! It relieved so much stress and she exceeded my expectations with her knowledge and super helpful suggestions. I highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!
“When it came time to plan our own wedding, we wanted/needed to do something that reflected our core values. We couldn’t have found a better fit, than with Eco Chic and the wonderful vendors involved in the process. I couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out. Everything, down to the fact that we were able to provide authenticity and extra use to, what could have simply been, a photo shoot made this day as eco-friendly as possible, which is exactly how we wanted our first day as man and wife to start out.A huge thank you to the design team, every vendor involved, the coordinator Melissa Latter, and our amazing photographer Hattie Root. The day could not have been this perfect without the inclusion of each and every one of you.
“We had a fairly short period of time to plan our wedding and we couldn’t be happier and more impressed with the way Melissa helped us put everything together perfectly. We wanted an eco-friendly wedding that was aligned with our values for sustainability and limited waste, while also allowing our guests to indulge and enjoy themselves over a long weekend.Melissa’s style was very “on-the-ball”, flexible and communicative and this allowed us to relax, and enjoy the process right up until the point we were married. It was great to have her partner with us in making our wedding weekend exceed our expectations.Melissa’s attention to detail helped us plan many of the small but essential things that we had not even thought of, without which our celebrations could not have been so perfect.Thank you Melissa for your help and pretty much holding our hands right up to the end, it was much appreciated and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.We highly recommend Eco Chic Affairs to anyone who wants have a hassle free, well-planned and environmentally friendly wedding!”
