“...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.”

“Everything was taken care of which allowed me to truly enjoy the day to the fullest. She was so much fun to work with as well, she kept me laughing and calm through everything. It felt like I was working with a friend, and that is what Meagan became to me throughout this process - a friend. I would recommend Meagan and Magnolia Collective to anyone and everyone. “

Engaged? Congrats! Now what?
Many couples find that wedding planning has a lot more moving parts than they originally thought. Indoor or outside? Buffet, plated or stations? Sweetheart, king, or head table? Classic or Boho?
We know; there are so. many. decisions.
From helping connect you with vendors that meet your specific needs, to making sure Grandma gets seated without feeling rushed. We've got you. When you have booked all of your vendors, but it's still months before the wedding and you aren't sure what to do. We've got you. When you are blending cultures and aren't sure how to navigate honoring each equally. We've got you. Our goal is to create events that are unique as our couples are. We want you (and your friends and family) to be able to relax and enjoy the day with you; not be stuck worrying about setting out decorations or making sure the shuttle arrives on time.
