How cute of a gift is this illustrated Georgia notepad?!

Over the years we've started to carry a few lines of stationery for the convenience of our event planning clients, and there are so many cute options here for holiday gifts, family holiday cards, kid's camp stationery, and other personalized gifts!

If you have worked with Pretty Swell Parties in any capacity, it is likely you had the opportunity to work with the very fabulous Gina Rubano Livingston. And it is also very likely that she worked her magic to make your wedding fabulous too!

Now, she has her own super cool project that you should absolutely know about. It is called Medium Arts ATL. She has some amazing events coming up that will help you understand contemporary art and learn how to connect with, and support local artists. Check it out! Go Gina! If you’ve ever felt intimidated by contemporary art, this workshop is for you. Join us for a 90-minute, participatory workshop that uses the power of careful looking and an easy-to-understand method to help demystify contemporary art. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to: 09/28/2018

You may have noticed that we’ve been a bit quiet lately...

We miss you Atlanta! And look forward to reconnecting with clients and industry friends when we return! Hello! Big apologies if you have reached out to us and haven’t heard back! I promise we are not ignoring you. The Pretty Swell Parties team has a had a lot of changes over the last year or so, and we are on a bit of hiatus from taking on new events and weddings for now.

With the imminent snow here in Atlanta, we can't help but think of our last snowy wedding weekend for Amber and Warren almost a year ago! Happy almost anniversary! Photo by: LibbyPhoto


We are always so appreciative when clients take the time to leave a review! Thank you, Polly!
"Melissa was amazing! She helped us every step of the way. There are so many decisions when planning a wedding. Melissa provided us with a schedule, planned all appointments and guided us when making decisions. She was responsive and took care of things as they arose. She was professional and organized. We couldn't have chosen a better wedding planner to make our daughter's wedding a perfect day!"

Thank you so much to Devora for this sweet review! We'll be sharing photos of their stunning wedding later today!

"When the reality of the amount of time and effort it would take to fully plan my wedding set in, I knew that I would need some help. A friend recommended Melissa, and after our first coffee meeting I knew that I would be able to trust her with this big event. Looking back, it was the best decision I could have made. She was there from that moment on through as many of decisions as we needed through the final send-off the night of the wedding. Everything went off without a hitch, and each phase of the wedding preparation and day transitioned right into the next seamlessly. I couldn't speak more highly of her, she's amazing!"
