Melissa and her team at Parsimony Vintage were an absolute godsend for our wedding. Often overwhelmed with too many choices and options, I needed help after I realized how daunting planning a memorable wedding is. While I had a vision for our special day, I found myself becoming stressed out and lost with how best to display it across ALL of the facets of our event. I hired Parsimony Vintage in hopes to have some of that stress alleviated, but never did I imagine that in doing so my wedding would be the unique, personal and beautiful experience that it was, without any issues or worry. Compliments from our guests poured in at the reception, and still continue to come in months later. They gush at how our wedding was, “the most relaxed, cozy and beautiful wedding,” they’ve ever attended. What an unbelievable compliment. This is all thanks, no doubt, to Parsimony Vintage and the amazing vendors they work with. Some guests have even asked me if they may to integrate certain design touches and ideas into their upcoming weddings and how to do so! I sent to them to Parsimony Vintage without hesitation, along with the highest of recommendations. Parsimony Vintage took the vision we had for our winter wedding and made it a reality that I’m so happy to know inspired others—a testament to their abilities. Melissa and her team completely took the worry and stress out of the planning and every detail was flawless. The peace of mind that Melissa and her team give you as a soon-to-be bride is PRICELESS. Parsimony Vintage— thank you, thank you, THANK YOU again!

As the mother of a soon-to-be bride, I wanted to make the day as special as possible for my daughter and future son-in-law. However, I did not want to over step my boundaries and impede on their vision for their special day—a very delicate line as all such mothers know! Parsimony Vintage helped us navigate this age old dilemma without issue, to the end we dreamed of for our only daughter’s wedding. They eased our anxiety about making the day exactly as our daughter wanted while still allowing me to give some motherly advice and input from time to time with respect to design ideas and event flow, all while staying in budget. Again, a feat that other such parents will understand! Parsimony Vintage is truly amazing and the sense of calmness, confidence and excitement they brought to our daughter’s wedding planning process was remarkable. Knowing she was in very capable hands allowed us to enjoy the wedding in a way we never thought would be possible. We are forever grateful to Parsimony Vintage for this and give them our highest recommendation indeed.

Melissa created and engineered the most SPECTACULAR themed food display for our Downton Abbey party. She came equipped with ALL the necessary items, including linen and platters, candles, ornaments and even sculpture! It was memory making and completed the evening. I have also had the pleasure of attending other events that she managed; Bridal showers and Weddings. She knows how to create a mood, utilize space and environment and make a most memorable event amazing!! High regards and best recommendations for Melissa’s custom service.

Melissa is an amazing source for inspiration for your event. We could not have pulled off a Bridal Shower so lovely and memorable without Parsimony Vintage. It’s said not to “Sweat The Small Stuff”but the beauty of Melissa’s work is in the details. I cannot say enough about how special events by Parsimony Vintage look and feel! Thank you Melissa.

It has been 7 days since my wedding and I have not stopped receiving compliments. It was truly a dream. Initially, I was extremely overwhelmed with the wedding planning process and had no idea where to begin. When I decided to work with Melissa at Parsimony Vintage, it felt as though all the stress was lifted and planning a wedding became the most amazing experience! Everyone is taught to believe that wedding planning is this stressful, difficult process where something always goes wrong and I can tell you first hand- it doesn’t have to be. Melissa took care of everything. From the vendors, to the decor, and the insurance, to the logistics- it was all under control. I would explain the vision I had and she would just find a way to make it happen. Everything I wanted out of my wedding, I got. She thought of things I’d never have thought of and made the entire process run seamlessly. The thing that stood out to me the most, and it’s hard to narrow it down between the beauty and detail of decor, the ease of the planning process or the execution of the day of, was how positive she was. Even when I had an unexpected reduction in budget, she was able to reduce expenses in ways I would have never come up with. All without a single bead of sweat on her forehead and a smile on her face. Every single detail of my wedding was organized and executed so perfectly. Thank you for the most magical wedding a girl could ask for and for allowing me to have the wedding of my dreams. I can’t adequately emphasize or articulate the level of gratitude I feel for everything. 5 star service!

Wow what a wedding! Your organization, eye for design and ability to take a brides “vision” and execute it to perfection is such a gift! All of the lovely little design details you incorporated into every part of the day added so much to the wedding photos even the photographer was impressed. Thank you for making my daughter’s big day as wonderful as it could be!

Parsimony Vintage was wonderful! They were easy to work with, creative, and captured my family’s vision for an 80th party perfectly!.. I would highly recommend them to ANYONE who wants to add a creative spin to any special event. From beginning to end, they made it an evening we will never forget. The floral arrangements were stunning, and the signage was very impressive for our signature cocktail bar.. I WILL be using Parsimony Vintage for many events to come... Being an event planner myself, I see over a 100 events a year- and am truly impressed with their attention to detail and ease to work with.. Thank you Parsimony Vintage for making my Nana’s birthday a huge success.. I wish I could give more stars.

From the moment we said “Let’s get married,” our first choice in helping us plan was Parsimony Vintage. We wanted a non-traditional affair, as we were hosting a baby shower at the same time. From the table decorations to the poster our guests signed (which still garners comments!), the look and feel of the day was everything we hoped for and more. Their accommodation and recommendations were right in line with our desired wedding day, so the pairing could not have been better!
