Our Wedding Experience, Simply The BEST!
Ria and her team are phenomenal and beyond excellent.
Her vision is on point and anything she does is with passion and hard work.
I first was recommended to Rias Designs from my best friend, she did her wedding and I was left in awe! I knew if I ever had the chance, I needed to hire her...
and I am so so thrilled we did!
Our wedding was a last minute change up to an outdoor farm wedding. Less than 3 months I booked the venue, updated her with the change and found out about 3 weeks before when we finally made it to stage 2, we knew the wedding was going to happen and Ria wow'ed all of us! Especially with short notice!
Never in my life did I ever think I was going to throw a wedding anywhere close to this (because pre-Covid, I would have NEVER even looked to having an outdoor event, let alone a farm wedding.)
I was nervous because I had no idea how it was all going to look or come together.
Ria asked me all the questions and together she not only totally impressed me and my husband, but also all my guests.
From the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, to the STELLAR décor completely threw me away.
She was honest throughout the entire time and told me everything I needed to do - she recommended other vendors to help (tables, chairs, dance floor) because she trusted them to help bring our vision together.
I am so so happy I trusted her too and took all her advice from start to end - I also trusted her vision would look way better than I can ever imagine and now I am even more thrilled - blew me away!!
I know understand why people use the saying "overflowing with happiness" because I was pouring out, especially after seeing the IMPECCABLE set-up. My bridal table I cried for how beautiful it was let alone all my guest tables!!
She worked with my vendors with such ease, as if we were all family.
I really feel a connection with Ria and it is so beautiful to work with AMAZING and talented people. It really brings more than just the "vision" come to life...it is apart of the entire experience.
I cannot thank you enough Ria for all the patience, planning, going with the flow and your time with me really really touches my heart.
You are so amazing and I will use you in the future and recommend you to EVERYONE!!
Thank you so much and our wedding would not have been the same without you!! XOXOSent on 20/07/2021

A Fairytale Dream come True!
I first learned about Rias Designs when I attended a wedding in 2016 and was blown away by her work! Her unforgettable creations stuck with me and when I got engaged in 2018 she was the first person I reached out to for my floral and decor.Sent on 14/01/2020
Going through the process of meeting with vendors and selecting a floral and decor team can be overwhelming, but when we met with Ria we knew we were in good hands. She makes herself available, she provides honest feedback and she goes above and beyond your expectations.
After months of planning with Ria, we were blown away by her personal touches and how she brought our theme to light. She far exceeded all our expectations and our wedding day was truly a dream come true!
Ria truly took the time to respond my our countless emails, was flexible when booking face to face meetings, and always open to all new ideas or concepts we would throw her way!
To this day I am still receiving compliments from my guests about her amazing work and would highly recommend Rias Desgins!

Ria Made it Royal

Where do I begin...
My husband and I had a vision for our wedding that was unusual and would require a lot of effort and participation for it to come to life. Going through several meetings with different planners, after our first consultation with Hooria there was no doubt in our minds that we had found the best wedding planner in Toronto. It wasn’t only how organized she was and years of experience in the event planning she had, it was the time,the interest, the versatility, her professionalism and the close attention to detail which stood out to us most. She made us feel important and like we were family even though we had just met. From then on it only got better. This was by far the best investment of our wedding. Working with our budget Hooria shared tons of tricks and idea’s to help us save and get the best for our special day. Not to mention always being patient, understanding and keeping our minds at ease during stressful times. She introduced us to amazing vendors, organized visits, attended vendor meetings and above all ran everything perfectly on the day of. When it came to decor it was OUT OF THIS WORLD! and SECOND TO NONE!! Our venue looked like something you would only see done for someone Royal and that’s exactly how we felt after seeing our venue decor for the first look. From the fresh flowers with unique colours, to the over the top head table and centrepieces, It truly was jaw dropping beautiful and one that will definitely not be forgotten. There aren’t enough words to completely express our appreciation to Hooria, Vanessa and Mary. We are still in awe when we look back on everything you did for us before, during and after the wedding. I still can’t get over the fact that my after dress was left at home (in Brampton) and Hooria and her team were able to keep me calm and get it to me (downtown Toronto)ASAP. Without your help our wedding would not have been the picture-perfect event we’ve always dreamed of. Thank you so much! We appreciate you more than words can say and Huge thanks for your beautiful surprise at the venue. We had so many guest later tell us that our wedding was the most beautiful and organized wedding they have ever attended (some where calling it “The Real Royal Wedding”) Those comments really summed up what a wonderful job you did for us. Hooria is the best wedding planner ever and we highly recommend her to any couple who needs someone that will understand their vision and work tirelessly to make that vision reality.
Thank you Ria to you and your team for making our wedding day beyond everything we dreamed of and more!😘❤️

Rias Ravishing Design!!!
Hooria, I wanted to express my thanks to you & the Rias Design team (including papa!!) for making our wedding so extremely special. You went above and beyond and while I was recommending you to brides without ever using you, you proved my estimation correct, that you were the best. (I know I am nuts!)Sent on 27/09/2018
Once I finally became a bride to be it was an absolute pleasure to deal with you. My husband often said how you were the bride “de-stresser”. Any design I contemplated, you provided advice and a voice of reason. I thank you thank you for being a truly down to earth person.
There are very few vendors in the wedding business, that will tell you something is not worth the money, you did this consistently, while maintaining a vision I’ve always dreamed of. You are an ultimate professional, and an individual I wished more people strived to be. A woman who is strong and certainly knows the wedding business!
Thank you for making our wedding a dream come true!
She is so dedicated to the job that she even came to make sure I was happy with absolutely everything before guests arrived. She’s is just simply amazing!
Thank you so much for everything!

So Very Grateful, Astonishing, Beyond Imaginable, Love...Love...Love
Ria is beyond exceptional. From the moment I met Ria, I knew right there and then she was going to do a spectacular job. Let me just say, I am so blessed to have come across Ria, as she went beyond and above my imagination. Ria did my bridal shower decor in Tiffany style. From the flower arrangements, cake/sweet table and room setups.....it was gorgeous!!! My guests, including myself, were soooo amazed, we couldn't wait to see what Ria had in store for my wedding day.Sent on 04/08/2018
All I can say is OMGGGG......WOW!!!!!! I cannot believe till this day THAT WAS MY WEDDING!!! As I replay in my head from what I saw on my special DAY, from my ceremony to the lobby to the reception... I am still in amaze and will forever feel that when I look back on my big day. Ria did a soft classy romantic and very elegant decor. From her ravishing flower arrangement on candelabras, to candles to set that romantic feel, to the head table in a round gazebo style with a chandelier in the middle and the list goes one. Myself, My family, my guests, my groom (now my husband... Lol) all raves about how beautiful the decor was. All of our jaws literately dropped.
Not only is Ria an amazing, understanding, and a very caring person.... She is very very passionate in what she does and she essentially makes dreams come true. That is what she did for me, as my wedding was beyond what I had envisioned it to be. She took the time to listen to my thoughts and answered all my questions, and put my mind at ease when I wasn't sure what to do. I had put my full trust in her... she gave me glam and beyond what I never expected. Throughout my wedding planning journey, Ria provided me with guidance and helped me every step of the way to best she could whenever I had stumbled. She treated not only myself, but my mom, dad, and sisters like family. I couldn't be more grateful for her coming into our lives. I recommend Rias Designs in a heartbeat as she is simply the best.
Ria, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for designing a stunning incredible look and for all the support you've given to me and my family.
