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!
What if I just need a day of coordinator?
Let us be the first to tell you that day of coordination doesn't really exist. You don't want someone showing up on your wedding day and 'winging it' just like we don't want to walk into your most important day and just 'fake it til we make it.'
While your venue may require a minimum of day of coordination, our baseline level of planning services begin a few months before the wedding, to ensure everyone is less stressed and able to enjoy the day. Our baseline level of planning services is Wedding Management, but we are always happy to schedule a consulting call with you to help get you started.
*Note for the budget conscious couple who feels they can't afford a planning team, be sure to check out our Planning On It Guide.
“...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. “
