Can you work with any budget?
Yes, we can definitely work with any budget as long as it is sensible and realistic. We will review your budget and wedding or event details with you, prior to booking and we will guide you in the direction that is compatible with your budget.
How many staff will I have on my wedding or event day?
Marcella Miller Events & Designs works together as a team. Every wedding and event is given a Lead Coordinator along with the appropriate number of Assistant's needed based on the guests count, venue and other details. We always make sure to have enough staff to handle the wedding or event in the best possible way.
How many hours will you be available on the day of my wedding or event?
Marcella Miller Events & Designs is available for your wedding or event, up to 12-hours a day, from set-up and decorate to clean-up and restore.
Do you charge any overtime fees or fees for last-minute tasks prior to the wedding or event?
Yes, if needed. But usually not required we offer up to 12-hours of management services on the day of your wedding or event. Our packages include Phone and Email support so, by the time your wedding or event day comes around everything should be covered.
What’s the shortest amount of time in which you have successfully arranged a wedding or event?
Ideally, at least 6 to 9 months is desired to coordinate a wedding or event that meets your expectations and does not leave the client overwhelmed, but we have planned a wedding in as little as two months and an event in two weeks! We usually team up with our clients between 3 to 5 months prior to their desired or established wedding or event date.
Do you schedule appointments after hours?
We always accommodate the best we can to our client's schedule. We are definitely available to meet after hours or at a time most convenient for you.
Can Marcella Miller Events & Designs plan ethnic weddings?
We absolutely love to plan ethnic weddings! Weddings are a perfect opportunity to pay respect to and celebrate a couple’s family and its traditions. It is especially exciting when a couple from two different ethnic backgrounds are coming together, allowing us to interweave aspects of both cultures into the wedding ceremony and reception. It makes for a most unique and personal wedding.
How does Marcella Miller Events & Designs set its fees?
There are a number of factors we take into consideration when determining our fees. Some of these factors include: the wedding or event size, whether it's being held at the same venue or in separate venues, whether the client lives locally or is planning from abroad, how many hours required for the wedding or event, the set-up, clean-up and tear/break-down of the wedding or event and how many days leading up to and following the wedding or event, and finally, the overall logistics of the project. Marcella Miller Events and Designs fees are determined on an individual basis. During our initial consultation session, we may better understand what services you will require of us throughout your planning journey.
How do I know which package is right for me?
It all depends on what stage you are in, the planning progress for your wedding or event. Feel free to give us a call or fill out our contact form on our Contact Us Page. We will schedule your initial consultation where we will then discuss all the aspects of your wedding or event planning with you and choose a package that best suits your needs or we will create a customized package for you.
What additional types of events do you plan, decorate and manage?
Engagement Parties, Bridal Showers, Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties, Post-Wedding, Gift-Opening Brunches, Wedding Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Gender Reveal Parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Birthday Parties, Graduation Parties, Retirements, Holiday Gatherings, Dinner Parties and much more...
What happens in the event that the planner/coordinator become ill or cannot attend the wedding or event for any reason?
We are thankful that we have not been faced with such a situation, but we certainly have a backup plan in place should something like this ever happen.
Throughout the planning process our planners and coordinators regularly share information and client details, so we are all familiar with each other’s clients. It is also company policy to create detailed client files that include all the pertinent timing and vendor information applicable to each client so that any Marcella Miller Events & Designs planners and coordinators can step in at any time without too much disruption. In the event that your planner or coordinator should fall ill we are able to offer our clients the peace of mind in knowing that they will be well attended to and that everything will continue as planned.
My reception venue has a wedding coordinator; do I still need to hire a wedding planner?
A venue coordinator works for the venue; their job is to answer your questions about the venue and assist you with your venue layout. They are someone you may contact if you need extra reassurance about the details of your wedding venue, however, their loyalty is to the venue. Their job does not include all the other details that go into planning your wedding.
A wedding planner, on the other hand, is involved from the very beginning of the planning process. Your wedding planner will handle each detail of your wedding from start to finish – everything from finding a venue and the appropriate suppliers to actually being there on your wedding day to make sure everything runs smoothly and as planned. Having a wedding planner reduces the natural stress of planning a wedding that you can enjoy the entire process and have complete confidence that all the details are taken care of for you.

What is a candy buffet?
A candy buffet is a display of candy, sweets and/or treats that is themed designed to complement the color scheme of your wedding or event.
Our “Sweet Fusion” Candy Buffets provide a beautiful themed decorated addition to any wedding, party and event.
Why should I include a candy buffet at my wedding or event?
Candy buffets are unique! A candy buffet will make your wedding or event fun, festive and memorable. Candy buffets provide your guests with an exciting, interactive element–and they make a fantastic favor for any event, one that will actually be appreciated!
Why shouldn’t I just do this myself?
Most people who have tackled a candy buffet on their own spend the same amount, most often more money than if they hired a professional. If you create your own candy buffet, you will need to purchase specialty glassware (at least 8 pieces), table accessories to make your display attractive, ribbons and signage, candy scoops, candy bags, containers, bubble wrap or packaging for transport to your event location and the candy itself (with no vendor discounts). Additionally, you will invest hours canvassing the stores for your supplies, researching candy prices, designing and practicing the set-up of your display, washing and wrapping your glassware, hauling your supplies back to the venue, setting up your display and breaking down the display at the end of the event, rewashing the glassware and figuring out what to do with your containers now that your event is over. Wow, was that tiring or what? We specialize in Candy buffets for Weddings and Events! Enjoy your event and let us handle the details.
What happens the day of my wedding or event?
If your wedding or event is at a venue, we will have already contacted the venue to discuss our needs. The day of the event, we will set up your custom candy buffet 1 to 5-hours before your guests arrive. Then you can watch in amazement as your guests get a glance at your candy buffet!

What is a Photo Booth?
A photo booth is a popular device used for special events to capture photos. The photo booth is a freestanding kiosk that contains a monitor and built-in camera. When guests press a button on the monitor, the machine takes a photo. The digital photo is then sent to the guest by email or text message. Some photo booths also have a printer, in which case the guest receives a printed photo, which is called a "photo strip." Traditionally, a photo strip features 3 small photos with different poses. Photo booths are an effective way to document special moments at an event and add entertainment value for guests.
The photo booth is an automated system that comes with everything you need! It includes 15 props (mustaches, glasses, etc.), along with unlimited digital photos and live sharing via text and email. You'll receive a digital photo gallery after the event with all images. You can add an optional printer which includes 200 full color photo strips.
Types Of Photo Booths: Standard vs Animated Booth
We rent two types of photo booths: Standard and Animated. The Standard Booth creates a traditional photo strip with 3 images. The Animated Booth creates a moving digital image, called a GIF. The animated image is like a quick video or a "Boomerang" effect from Instagram. The Standard Booth can create both digital and printed photo strips, while the Animated Booth creates digital images only.
What is a BackDrops?
The backdrop comes with everything you need. Use it with the photo booth, or behind a head table, cake table, registration desk, etc. The kit includes the frame and wrinkle-free drapes. By default the package comes with white drapes, but other colors are available upon request. The package also includes swag fabric, which can be used to add a second layer of decorative fabric to the backdrop. Backdrop height is adjustable up to 10 feet tall. The Small size package comes with a 12 foot wide kit; Standard size package comes with a 24 foot wide kit; and Large size package comes with a 36 foot wide kit.
What is a Canopy/Chuppah?
A canopy is a frame structure with linens or other materials used for decoration. This is also called a chuppah for Jewish weddings. A canopy is used to decorate a wedding, such as using it for the wedding ceremony for exchanging vows, or for the wedding reception to add a focal point near the sweetheart table, cake table, etc.
What is a Wedding Arch?
A wedding arch is a frame with linen draping. They are also called ceremony arches. The frame comes in many different shapes and sizes, included a rounded top, flat top, and geometric shapes. Arches are commonly used to create a focal point for exchanging vows at a wedding ceremony. Additionally, arches can be used as backdrops behind sweetheart tables, cake tables, or as general event decorations. Wedding arches are an effective way to add a focal point to a room.
What is Event Lighting?
Event lighting is a special type of lighting that changes the look and mood of a room. There are many different types of lights that are used for event lighting. The most common types of event lighting include uplighting, monogram lights (also called gobo lighting), pinspotting, starry night lighting, water effect lighting, black lights, and moving heads. Each light creates a different effect, such as adding color, making the room glow, projecting words and images, or shining moving beams of light. Event lighting is an effective way to enhance an event and transform the atmosphere.
What is Uplighting?
Uplighting is a popular lighting effect used for special events. The effect is created by placing small lights on the floor and aiming them up. This creates a vertical beam of light -- hence the name "up lighting." Uplights are commonly used on walls, backdrops, pillars, tents, and trees. Uplighting is an effective way to change the look of a room and add ambiance for an event. The uplighting can be set to just about any shade of any color with the push of a button. Use the uplights to illuminate the walls in color.
What is Monogram Light?
Monogram lighting is a popular lighting effect used for special events. It displays a logo, monogram, or text in lights. The monogram light can be projected onto any surface. This lighting effect is created using a specialized projector with a disc that contains the design. Monogram lights are commonly used for dance floors, venue walls, and tent ceilings. For example, it is used to project monograms at weddings, and to display logos in lights at corporate events. This type of lighting is also referred to as gobo lighting. Monogram lighting is an effective way to personalize an event. The monogram light includes a custom design and projector pre-loaded with your design.
What is Spotlight?
The spotlight is small, narrow beams of light used to illuminate centerpieces, floral arrangements, cakes, signage, and any other important aspects of your event or anything else that you wish to highlighted. Spotlights make the special details at your event pop.
