Olivia is amazing. She is so supportive, so organized, and just absolutely amazing at her job. We hired Olivia around a year before our wedding. She contacted us with a month by month detailed breakdown of what needed to be done to be ready for...
the wedding. She was always available for a question and always gave an honest opinion.
The week of our wedding - she was incredible. Our wedding was one that was affected by COVID-19. We had to postpone our large ceremony but decided to get married in a small, family only ceremony.
Olivia proceeded to contact every vendor, let them know what was going on, gather alternate dates, put those into a spread sheet, highlighted available dates, and then once we selected a date - recontacted all vendors and set up our alternative date. She did all of this in 48 hours.
She then also showed up for the small intimate ceremony, on her own dime, and helped set that up. She was a voice of reason and calm for me. She also proceeded to wrangle my entire family - a feat on its own - and was never a “drill sergeant”. She was kind, but made sure the job got done. Her pricing is incredibly fair and I get to use her again in June and I could not be more excited.

At first, I thought I didn’t need a wedding coordinator because I thought I could handle it all myself. BOY was I wrong. There were so many things that I hadn’t even thought about or that I hadn’t adequately planned that Olivia brought to my at...
tention. She worked through every tiny detail with me to make sure our day went smoothly. Working with Olivia and her team allowed us to enjoy our day without any stress. I was so impressed by how well they communicated with our vendors and bridal party and how efficient everything was run at the rehearsal and on wedding day. I even had several members of my bridal party and my family tell me how impressed they were! I could not recommend Olivia Miley Events enough!!!

This was so helpful and I didn’t have to worry about a thing!! She arrives early on wedding day, answers everyone’s questions from family, bridal party, to vendors. She makes sure the bride is HAPPY and gets what she wants the whole day!! She’s there from start to finish.

I found Olivia on Instagram in 2019, a few months before I was actually engaged. I knew that I wanted to book her asap. From our first phone call I knew that we were about to plan something epic. Since we currently live in Texas but wanted to ...
get married on the coast where my fiancé was from I knew I would need someone local to the state for guidance. Olivia was there the entire way and gave such great advice. She was calm and up to date on all things Covid related so that I never had to worry about what the next step was. We planned the most perfect and intimate brunch wedding. It was a new concept when we first started talking but I think the idea quickly became a favorite of hers. I would recommend her to every person that is recently engaged. She is so helpful, flexible and kind but also has a way about her that makes everything fall into place. If she is able to wrangle my now husbands rowdy bunch while helping pull off the most perfect day then she can do pretty much anything. Thank you so much Olivia and your team. Y'all were so amazing and made my wildest dreams come true!

Our wedding was supposed to be in May, but due to the global pandemic we had to postpone to August. It’s such a heartbreaking time for us; however, all of our vendors were able to work with us to get a new date except for Olivia. This was under...
standable due to a lot of brides having to postpone. We paid a $200 fee (part of what we would owe for her to be the coordinator for our “busy month” of April and the day of in May). So at this point, nothing has been done on her end for our wedding. There was no contract signed. When I asked her about the new date that our venue/church could both make work, she basically said I should’ve let her call all of the vendors (clearly to pick a date that worked for her) and that the venue and the coordinator should be the first things booked. I disagree. She made it seem as though she is the only person affected by this pandemic. I understand she runs a small business, but I’m also having to reorder almost everything I’ve bought for this wedding- koozies, signs, invites, etc.
Even though no contract has been signed, she is refusing to give any money back- even partial credit. This was not something we chose to happen. Some of my vendors are being shut down until this craziness passes, so I had no choice but to postpone. It’s not so much about the money, but how unprofessional she was when she called (instead of texting back to the text about a contract, she called, because there wasn’t one). All of the vendors have been great and so understanding about the situation at hand, except for Olivia. This is already a very stressful time for brides trying to replan their weddings. This being added to the stress hasn’t helped one bit! During times like this, something so unexpected, I would’ve thought people would step up and do the right thing.

Olivia knocked my wedding out of the park! I work and live in California, but came home to Laurel, MS to get married. She helped me plan my wedding from all the way across the country! I was never the kind of girl who planned their wedding in t...
heir mind, or knew who to hire, or even likes wearing white. She gave me suggestions in each area so that I could narrow down from there who I wanted to hire. She helped me choose, if I was unsure or just needed my opinion validated. She provided checklists to keep me on track. This was particularly important, because I am in the military and did zero wedding planning for key months due to work; however, her direction kept me on track when I was able to make planning a priority.
Lastly, the week of, and especially on the day, Olivia was a Godsend. She commanded the attention of everyone involved, but with a smile and great attitude. She kept us perfectly on schedule. And best of all, she took what I wanted and made that happen, which is harder than you think when EVERYONE has an opinion and wants to “help.”
If you’re on the fence, hire her! If you want someone in your corner who will back you up as you make choices true to you, but aren’t necessarily the norm, hire her! If you’re looking for someone who will fit a smaller budget without sacrificing on quality, PLEASE hire her. You won’t be sorry :)

ave it all up to each vendor to do their thing, but NOT Olivia!
She knows her position as the Event Planner. She is not only there to help make a timeline and guide the bride through the day (which is the minimum a planner should do), but she is also directing all the other vendors to make it happen the way the bride needs it to... even if the bride has no idea that’s what she needs!
I’m telling you. All Event Planners are not created equal and if you think so, you’ll be sadly disappointed! You could get all amateur vendors, and a great planner will work with everyone to pull your wedding off flawlessly. But if you have all high-end vendors and an amateur planner, it could be a disaster. Do NOT make the mistake of having your mom’s best friend as your “planner”... hire a pro. Hire the best of the best. Hire Olivia TODAY!! You will NOT regret it!
