    Breathtaking Modern Elegance

    We were first blown away with the beautiful work Ria did at my sister’s wedding in 2019 and knew right away when we got engaged to look no further than Rias Designs! Ria is such a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with. We had to change our wedding date 3 times due to the pandemic, yet she was so accommodating and reassuring throughout the entire process that she would ensure everything would be beautiful and work out….and that she did. Ria is very responsive, offers great design ideas and honest feedback. She went above and beyond in all aspects of planning, designing and execution. There are no words to describe how blown away we were when we walked into our venue on our wedding day! The historical train station was transformed into a breathtaking space with modern elegance. She is a true professional and talent, and we would strongly recommend Ria and her team. Thank you for everything and making our wedding vision come true!

    For anyone looking for a WOW factor for flowers and decor!

    For anyone looking for a WOW factor for their wedding day (or any other special event), I would highly recommend going with Ria. Ria is so unbelievably talented in her craft that she makes her work look effortless. She is able to take your vision and execute it with such precision. My guests, husband and I were honestly blown away at the results when we walked into the reception hall. It was beyond what we had expected and wished for. Everything including the wall wraps, chandeliers, flowers, linens etc was utter perfection. It exuded the vibe we had wanted for our wedding day. You truly get your value for your money, and she is by far the most reasonably priced vendor in the Vaughan area. Thank you so much for everything Ria, you are amazing!!

    A literal Fairy God mother

    The best wedding decision i made was booking Ria. I interviewed maybe 30 planners and thank god i found Ria. Not only was she incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and useful. She made me feel like she devoted her life and soul to me and my wedding. She made sure everything was exactly how i wanted, she argued with vendors on my behalf to get what i wanted, and she is so responsive. She got stuck planning my wedding prior during and post covid and she made an incredibly difficult time so positive. And last but not least, she designed my wedding SOO DAMN GOOD!!! whatever it was that i had in my head she recreated just better. From the moment of booking to the cutting of the cake every single moment was incredible with Ria and her team. If i could recommend just one vendor to a bride it would be Rias Design

    Our Wedding Experience, Simply The BEST!

    WOW!WOW!WOW!
    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!! XOXO

    A Transgender Bride’s DREAM became REALITY!!

    Weddings are special and meaningful to every couple getting married; however, being a trans woman, finding love and getting married is something I thought would never happen to me. This was more than just a wedding; it was showing the people around us that LOVE is LOVE. A message we wanted our guests to leave with. Back in 2019, I hadn’t come out yet (was living in stealth) and was nervous planning a wedding. I didn’t think I needed a wedding planner until I saw Ria’s planning/decor in a wedding my husband (now) and I attended. We remember meeting her on a rainy evening, her energy and smile was contagious. We just connected instantly. We didn’t bother looking elsewhere and decided to trust Ria with the most special day of our lives. What I loved about Ria is that it felt “personal” and not like a business transaction. You can tell she puts heart and soul into what she does and the people she works with.
    Months went by, the pandemic hit, I lost my job and I debated on coming out before our wedding - I was scared. I finally told Ria (after trying a few times but couldn’t get the words out of my mouth). I was nervous if she would be inclusive, often people including wedding vendors REALLY are not inclusive to gay or lesbian couples, let alone someone who is trans. Although Ria did not understand my unique identity or the depths of my struggle, she was not judgemental and understood the importance of this wedding. Ever since then, I feel like she just took it up a notch in trying to make me feel comfortable, seen, and heard in ensuring I and we as a couple felt represented through the details of our wedding. Ria wanted to get to know “me” and about our love. Ria had a good balance of personal and professionalism (which I appreciated), along with responding to emails/messages/questions at a timely manner (literally faster than anybody I know). My vision was quite extravagant, and we appreciated Ria’s ability to problem solve to create a budget/quote that was more realistic but still had that “wow” factor. For example, toning down certain aspects of the wedding in terms of decor when that budget could be used somewhere else. Or reusing materials from one section (ceremony) to another area, in the reception, to make it more cost effective. The theme of our wedding was very “fairy princess running through the woods, fell into a bed of florals with a Spanish twist” and Ria totally captured that. Let me tell you when I had to gasp for air when I first saw the FULL ceremony space. It truly blew my mind, the little details. Our Reception space from the entrance of the hall to the main area - every single detail looked intentional. It truly was the wedding of our dreams. Every single guest told us they have never been to a wedding that was decorated in such way, felt so luxurious, and organized/planned so well. They felt like they were in a forest. It was truly an “experience” - not just a wedding where you sit on the table and don’t know what’s happening. Guests are still talking about our centre pieces, the floral/leaves hanging off our bridal party tables, the massive and dramatic head table. The pictures truly belongs in a magazine. As we look through our pictures and videos, we keep seeing new details that we didn’t notice before. Needless to say, we recommend Ria for her planning and decor services because of her talent and passion for the wedding business. But most importantly, for having a genuine and compassionate heart for being inclusive and kind towards us. Although she maybe doesn’t understand the struggles we go through as a couple, she TRIED to understand, and helped us shine on our big day so we could have the dreamiest and most special day of our lives at our wedding. She made my dream become reality. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Hope this wedding continues to create more inclusivity and change the direction in the way the wedding industry caters towards the LGBTQ+ Community. Love is love.

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.
