    Designed Dream Events exceeded all expectations! We purchased the one-month wedding planning package and it was the greatest decision we could have made for our wedding. There are so many things that you need to do for a wedding, and so many that you may not think of (especially if it’s your first time!), so having an EXCEPTIONALLY ORGANIZED expert to help you along the way—and then be there to execute your day—is soooo key. Prior to our wedding, the DD team worked with us to help us find vendors that matched our vision and ensure that we have all wedding contracts completed. Then, they worked with our vendors to execute the wedding exactly as we had hoped! Truly, while we already felt confident about our day thanks to the DD team’s INCREDIBLE SUPPORT AND PROFESSIONALISM during the planning process, we did not anticipate just how incredible Fidan and Milena would be on the day itself. They MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE CELEBRITIES the whole day—escorting you, guiding you, supporting your family, communicating with headphones and microphones to all the vendors—it was amazing. Our day was nothing short of FLAWLESS, which we know will make for amazing LIFELONG MEMORIES. We are thus sooo grateful to them and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to others!

    Having our wedding planned by Fidan, was the most amazing experience. She has the right attitude and personality to plan a stressful event and we really appreciated that during the planning process. The vendors she chose for us, met our expectations and everything went so smoothly on our wedding day. My fiancé and I were completely stress-free and didn’t have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding. She was always available to answer our questions, and to answer our calls. I am a perfectionist bride, and Fidan’s help was beyond my expectations. We had a few hiccups here and there as any wedding would, but Fidan was always there to support us. What a big smile and a calm personality. We highly recommend Fidan for Destination Weddings specially, if you want a hassle free wedding.

    Designed Dream Events exceeded our expectations with their exceptional level of professionalism and assistance. Their organization and efficiency were truly impressive, ensuring a flawless execution of our wedding. Fidan, in particular, proved to be a remarkable asset in the industry. She not only anticipated and attended to every detail, but also skillfully managed aspects that escaped our attention, such as the DJ, lighting, and overall design. Additionally, her adeptness at handling even the most challenging parental dynamics was commendable. Without a doubt, if you desire a confident and professional event planner, look no further than Designed Dream Events.

    We had the pleasure of working with Fidan and her team as our month of coordinator for our wedding and we were very happy with our overall experience. Hiring a wedding coordinator/planner is something we would recommend to anyone regardless but we would highly recommend Fidan and her team for their expertise and experience in the industry alone. Planning our wedding with Fidan was so easy and stress free because she was extremely organized, always a professional, and came with a wealth of knowledge and network of vendors. Thank you again Fidan and Kimia for all the hard work you put in to creating such a beautiful day for us. Michael and I were genuinely able to enjoy our day to the fullest because we knew and trusted that your team was handling everything. We are so grateful!

    Working with Fidan and Milena is always a pleasure! They have the creativity, the passion and the professionalism that speaks volumes in the event and wedding industry. As an entertainment company, we always need to be aligned with the decor plan and vision for the event, and with the collaboration process, we always hit the mark with Designed Dream Events!

    Fidan and her team are absolutely AMAZING! The reason we chose Fidan is because we felt her warmth and kindness from our first consultation. She understood our visions and helped them come to life. She is kind, friendly, professional, has a lot of knowledge, and has good connections within the wedding industry. We had a roller coaster of a time planning our weddings after postponing it 4 times because of the pandemic. We truly could not have done it without her! She was so supportive, she knew how to maneuver the challenges, and she made the changes and re-bookings go as smoothly as possible. She and another vendor even surprised us by dropping off flowers and goodies to celebrate our initial wedding date, that was really special! We have already referred her services to a few friends whom she has also helped plan their weddings. We look forward to planning more events with her in the future. Thank you Fidan, Mandy and Kimia for taking care of us and being part of our special milestones!

    Fidan is absolutely amazing and she did a fantastic job planning our wedding in beautiful Punta Cana in January 2023! She put in a lot of time, effort, dedication, and hard work to plan our wedding, and to have everything go smooth and memorable for the both of us!! It was great to hear from her when it came down to suggestions, recommendations, the pros and cons of various things, etc. Her communication, professionalism, patience, and organizational skills are very excellent as well, and that was what made our wedding planning so great. I honestly do not know how this wedding would turn out to be if it was not for her. Do NOT think twice to hire a wedding planner like Fidan. She is soo friendly and helpful in every way! Thank You Fidan for making our destination wedding perfect, beautiful, and everything we ever dreamed of come to life!! We are truly beyond happy!

    Mandy and Fidan are the best. Mandy personally spent several calls with us and our vendors to cross eyes and dot teeth, the level of detail is unbelievable. Fidan, you are the boss and you keep the ship running. We had our wedding at royal york, it went smoothly and we could even have started earlier - when does that ever happen to people ever? If you are wondering about this group of women, you should just hire them. Money best spent across all of my vendors. I would hire them again for any event. They rock!!!!
