Lauren MacQueen (aka Lauren Thompson or Lauren Schwarts) currently has a lawsuit against her for stealing money from approximately 20 brides over the past 2 years. Her website (masterplanevents.com) looks legit, but she is not. She is also the Event Coordinator at the Alden Hotel…
Check out the BBB and the facebook group: Brides Against Master Plan Events.
She is shady… you have been warned!

Oh my gosh! I almost booked my wedding at the Alden. I was suppose to meet with her and instead she sent her assistant. They also kept telling me that they could get 200 people in their terrace area. There is absolutely no way that you can get that many people with tables and chairs in that room. I don’t even think a stand only event with 200 people would work. I’ve noticed a lot of the venues are telling people you can get more people in the room then you really can. So brides be careful about that!

Here is my review on weddingwire: Master Plan Events.
Lauren also currently has 15 complaints against her through the Better Business Bureau: Master Plan Events.
Like I said in my review, my initial interactions with Lauren were good, but they slowly deteriorated in the 2 years leading up to my wedding day. I do believe that Lauren was, at one time, an excellent wedding coordinator; I’m just not sure what happened in the past couple of years that have made her STEAL brides’ money. The fact is she is dishonest, and I would be extremely careful in any dealings with her. She has stolen money from at least 12 brides, possibly more.
