I hired Designed Dream based on a recommendation from a close friend. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding in October and was able to witness Designed Dream in action. Honestly in the beginning, I didn’t think I needed a planner and figured I could plan and organize the wedding myself. I am so glad I didn’t go with my initial feeling because hiring Designed Dream was one of the best decisions I ever made with regards to the entire wedding. My husband and I live in Calgary and we were planning our Toronto wedding from there. Not only were Fidan and Carly on top of everything, they understood exactly what we wanted and were able to carry out the vision we had for the wedding in its entirety. Planning a wedding from afar wasn’t easy, especially with us not being there in person, the time difference, and the fact that my husband and I have very busy schedules with work. Designed Dream was very flexible in terms of scheduling vendor meetings and Skype calls. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch. Both my husband and I have large families and Fidan and Carly were able to get everything completed on time so that we could enjoy our wedding stress free. They were also able to anticipate any problems before they became an issue. The moment there was any hint of a potential problem, Fidan and Carly were communicating with the appropriate people for clarification to ensure the issue was dealt with. Fidan and Carly were also very approachable and personable to friends and family who had questions and we had great feedback from them as well. There were definitely a lot of things I didn’t think about both during the planning process and the day of and Fidan and Carly were on top of everything. Our wedding day was perfect and it wouldn’t have happened without Fidan and Carly. We could not recommend Designed Dream enough!
