    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!!!!

    As an event vendor myself, I have had the opportunity to work with Mandy and her team for many times over the years. Never once did they disappoint me and clients. Mandy is so responsive, professional, resourceful, and responsible. They really put in their 200% to give clients the best experience anyone could ever imagine. I always recommend Mandy and her team to my clients!

    Fidan and her team are wonderful, professional, detail-oriented and kind! We are so grateful that we got to work with Designed Dream team! Two years ago, before Pandemic, I started planning our wedding in Canada. Googling, I found too many planners and vendors, I felt lost and confused. I looked at Designed Dream profile on google and I trusted the reviews! A great great decision to make and that’s where our journey started with Fidan and her team! Pandemic happened and like many couples we had to reschedule our wedding not once but twice! Having an international family, not only we had reschedule the date but also we had to change the location of the wedding to Mexico so everyone could travel there easily (given the strict rules of Canada on closing the borders). If Fidan’s positive energy and support wasn’t with us, I would definitely cancel the wedding. She is kind and always available. The whole team made us feel we were the only customer they had (giving us all the attention needed) Fidan’s also extremely patient and flexible. Given our super busy schedule, she worked hard with us to schedule and plan the dreamiest destination wedding!! Our wedding was beautiful, fun, flawless and memorable! We got so many compliments about it… and I have to say, all the credits goes to this hardworking team.

    From the very start, Fidan helped me figure out exactly what I was looking for on my big day. Without her guidance I wouldn’t have been introduced to such talented vendors that helped make my vision come to life. These vendors we’re also so happy to hear that Fidan was our wedding planner, due to her professionalism and attention to detail. Throughout our two-years of planning (due to Covid) she made me feel supported and calm with frequent phone calls/emails and zoom sessions. I can’t thank Fidan and her team enough for making our day SO special. She made sure every little detail was in place, and allowed for myself to be present and not have to stress about anything. Brides, if I can suggest one tip…you NEED Fidan and her expertise in your life. She is the complete package and an absolute game changer. Thanks again for everything! Xoxox Sarah

    WE ARE SO THANKFUL! Fidan and her team came to the rescue in the middle of our stressful wedding planning. Fidan ensured she understood what we wanted, saw our vision, and helped us bring it to life. She was there for us every step of the way in the weeks and days leading up to the wedding, and made sure we did not miss any details. Even with last minute changes, she got it all done. She was always on top of it and available whenever we needed her. We did not touch our phones all day/night of our wedding, as we were in good hands, and Fidan and Kimia had it all under control and allowed us to enjoy the best day of our lives stress free. Thank you x a million! We are so appreciative!
