We do events.

You do you.

Inclusive event planning in North Carolina, Virginia and beyond!

Event and Weddings often have more moving parts than you ever thought were possible.  As the host of a party you take on a new role, and everyone has questions that need to be answered. 


Are you having a classic indoor dinner party or will you dance the night away under the stars?  Whether you're envisioning a timeless reception in a beautiful ballroom or a wild and fun dance party in a brewery-- we're here to pair you with the planner on our team who can help bring your vision to life!

 “...we wanted to prioritize choosing vendors who were from communities of color, LGBTQ+ friendly, and vendors who prioritized social justice and inclusive spaces. Every time we asked her for a recommendation, she delivered. Thinking back to our wedding day, you could just feel the love and joy in the room and there's no doubt in our minds that Meagan and Magnolia Collective were a huge part in bringing together the perfect team for us on the most special day in our lives.”

“She introduced us to the MOST amazing vendors (her circle and reputation in the wedding industry in the Triangle speaks volumes to her integrity in the field) and walked us through every step of the way. 

I was in Iowa when I got engaged with my fiancé in North Carolina. Our families and bridal party were super helpful and supportive, but they are also spread out over the country. Meagan was our boots on the ground, coordinating vendor visits on the few weekends I was able to come into town, managing conference calls with me a time zone behind, and keeping us on track with everything.”

"My husband and I got married in March of 2023, and we used Magnolia Collective’s full-service package for our wedding at The Maxwell in Raleigh. From the very beginning, Megan and Lauren impressed us with their quick responses to our questions and their exceptional organizational skills, both in the lead-up to our wedding and on the big day itself. The initial call with Megan's team allowed us to determine if we were a good fit for each other. Megan walked us through the company, the process, and the available packages in detail. We were seeking a planner who would be totally hands-on so we could be hands-off, and Magnolia Collective was perfect for that role. Megan and Lauren were always quick to respond to our calls and emails, helping us build an incredible team of vendors for our wedding. The vendors they recommended were top-notch and aligned perfectly with our vision. Megan even attended our rental appointment and picked out everything we needed based on our likes and dislikes from our style boards. This level of personalized service was exceptional and ensured that every detail matched our vision perfectly. Best of all, Megan’s team organized and coordinated our wedding so seamlessly that any minor issues went completely unnoticed. We trusted Megan’s team with every aspect of our wedding, providing them with our preferences, and they brought our vision to life beautifully. Their list of trusted vendors and strong reputation with them made the entire process stress-free. .“
