    Just wonderful!

    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.

    Working with Milena has been so easy. She made our wedding night perfect. 

    
It was after several initial consults and interviews before I landed on Milena Designed Dream events. At our meeting Milena’s demeanor and personality made me feel at ease right away and it was like talking with a friend. This feeling remained consistent throughout the entire process. Milena was very easy to work with through the design process where she came up with great concepts and sourced amazing suppliers. There was a point where I felt like I was burning out and sensing this Milena calmly had me take a week off, guiding me with a soft touch when necessary to keep the process moving.

    
We had what could only be described as the perfect wedding.  At the very least this is what it was to me and judging by comments we received was the same for our guests. Every distraction, delay, permutation, hiccup in the coordination of that day was handled by Milena, calmly.  Never did we get even a hint of anything being amiss. It was a phenomenal and beautiful day, both literally from the design and also in our hearts and it was all thanks to her. Milena, we can’t thank you enough.

    Excellence in Every Detail

    When my fiancee suggested, at an early stage in our wedding planning, that we hire a planner I must admit to being against it. We seemed to be doing fine with it ourselves (really, 95% her!) and I just couldn't see the value in the extra cost of hiring someone else to do the planning. I had no idea how wrong I was! Hiring Fidan was worth ten times what she charged us! Not only that, she now feels like a dear friend who we would be happy to see anytime. She has an instinctive sense of how to deal with people to get everything done perfectly and leave everyone feeling good about it in the process. She was highly professional in every interaction with us, with family and friends, with vendors, and with church officials. Her level of knowledge and sense of style are excellent. She has many contacts with a range of vendors for every aspect of a wedding and they, in turn, are highly reliable, professional, and of the highest quality. She is also a truly warm and wonderful person herself which makes the whole process so very pleasant. In the end, we came to rely very heavily on Fidan, and in return, she helped give us the wedding that was truly a dream come true. Not only would I recommend her I would urge any couple planning a wedding to hire Fidan as soon as possible! She will make your life and wedding better than you know!

    Professional, personable, and responsive.

    We had the pleasure of having Designed Dream Events (Fidan) as our wedding planner / coordinator in 2021. Fidan is personable, professional, detail-oriented, and responsive. During the planning process, Fidan was exceptional at listening to us and turning our vision into reality. In areas where we felt too clueless to even formulate an opinion, she offered guidance and professional judgement that were precise and helpful. This is what makes her outstanding and separates her from the pack. As an added bonus, Fidan has strong connections with very competent and reliable vendors (florists, DJ, MC, Limo, cutlery suppliers, and much more). On the day of coordination, Fidan and Mandy were flawless and gave us a stress free experience. Highly recommended.

    The Golden Standard of Event Planning

    If you are planning a wedding and debating whether or not you need a wedding planner. Don’t even think twice about it. You NEED one, and you absolutely NEED Designed Dream. I am a control freak and a very type A personality and I did not think I needed a planner. This was one of the best decisions that we made during our entire planning process. We had the pleasure of working with both Millena and Fidan, and all I can say is that these girls are gold. They are so experienced in what they do, they are so organized and effective that they truly let you just be the bride. Both Fidan and MIllena are so dedicated to what they do that they will respond to you literally any time of day to put you at ease, whether that is 5 am or 11 pm. They are there for you every step of the way. We never had to wait more than an hour to get a response, more so, usually it came within 5 mins of writing the text. The coordination that these girls bring to the table is simply incredible. They will coordinate amongst all of your vendors and make sure things that you did not even know had to be done are considered, discussed and resolved before the big day. The thing that stood out to us the most however, was the smoothness that these girls orchestrated on the actual day of the day wedding. There will always be a few hiccups during the celebration of any wedding, but as a bride, I did not have to answer a single question, I did not speak to a single vendor, and I did not have to deal with a single issue. In fact, Millena took care of everything so quickly that I did not even notice a single mishap. Millena took charge and took care of absolutely everything. She made the day completely stress free for us. There were times that I knew we were behind schedule, I would look at her, and she would simply say “you are good, everything is ok, I have everything under control.” And it is that simple sentence that made the wedding what it was. Because she not only said it, but she did in fact have every single little thing under her control. Design Dream is your key to your wedding. Thank you for your work. Thank you for your dedication. Thank you for your talent. Thank you for everything. We could not have done it without Milena and Fidan. We love you!!!!!!

    Thank you both so so much for helping make our wedding day so special!

    Fidan and Milena,

    Thank you both so so much for helping make our wedding day so special!

    We are very grateful for all your hard work in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and especially on the day of our wedding.

    You both always had beautiful smiles on your faces, a calming and patient demeanour, and control of each situation. We felt at ease with you there and it allowed us to enjoy the day to the fullest.

    You guys are amazing and we are so glad to have had you there on our wedding day!!

    Thank you!!!

    Can’t Thank Designed Dream enough!

    The moment we interviewed with Fidan we knew that she would be the best person to coordinate our special day. She came to our meeting equipped with a sample itinerary and all the pieces needed to hit the ground running. Although it was day-of coordination we were looking for, Fidan and her team started their work much sooner to ensure all contractual obligations were met and the vendors knew exactly what they needed to do and when. The day of, she and Jessica were lifesavers!! They were always there to get what we needed, keep an eye on the time, assist guests and so much more. I knew I could rely on them to have tide to go when my husband got a little pasta sauce on his shirt haha! I can’t imagine how the day would have gone without them!! Best investment!!

    Amazing team!

    My husband and I can not stress enough how wonderful Fidan and her team are. We can honestly say that we could not have put together such a beautiful wedding without the organization, dedication and creativity that Fidan and her team provided.

    She is the best at what she does and we are forever grateful.

    Perfect because of Designed Dream

    Fidan came highly recommended by my best friend and her sister. I first met her via Skype and I knew from that moment I wanted to hire her. We started wedding planning while I was still living in the US so anxiety was high but Fidan always answered all my emails and texts in a timely manner and always put me at ease. We hired Fidan right after our first in person consultation and that was one of the best decisions we made! Fidan comes with an amazing team of vendors and everyone she recommended was on top of their game and so professional.

    On the day of our wedding, we had Jessica with us all morning. Jessica was amazing, making sure that we were tended to and that things were running on time. I felt so at ease knowing she was there.

    Fidan met us at the church, smiling and waving at us as we arrived. The church coordinator wasn’t so nice to Fidan but she kept her composure and remained professional the entire time, which I appreciate so much. She continued with the program and ensured the ceremony went perfectly.

    The venue was beautiful. Fidan and her team did such an amazing job setting up the decor and the plate settings so that it was perfect. There was a mishap with the cake arriving late (it was a gift from our family friend and they were late) but we knew nothing of it until a few days after. Fidan and Jessica remained calm and ensured that to us, everything was perfect... and it was. This is where her level of expertise and years of experience made such a difference. They handled everything with such professionalism and showed us nothing but love and kindness the day of and throughout the 18 months we spent together (and even to this day).

    I’ve been to weddings where things have gone wrong and the bride was the one to deal with the problems. We both knew that nothing can be perfect but in our eyes, it was and 100% of that is because of Fidan and Jessica.

    We recommend Fidan and Designed Dream to everyone. We are so so grateful to Fidan and Designed Dream for always being so professional, organized, kind, honest, most importantly, for giving my husband and I such a perfect and stress free day. Thank you so so much and we send all our love for even more successful years ahead 💕

    Highly recommend!

    We are so thankful to Fidan and Carly for their expertise, kindness, and attention to detail that allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding day to the fullest! Their vision helped us DESIGN OUR DREAM ;)
    We started the wedding planning process determined that despite what people said, we would be fine without wedding planning/coordination help. We met and booked most vendors during the first two months of planning but then I started feeling completely overwhelmed thinking of how our wedding would come together. I convinced my fiancé (now husband) to at least consider the idea of a coordinator. From our first meeting with Fidan (who actually met us at our closest Starbucks), these worries all faded and we signed on the spot!
    We hired Designed Dream for wedding coordination and styling 8 months prior to our wedding day; and we received so much support and assistance over those 8 months! From attending décor meetings with us, creating an inspiration board, revising multiple itinerary drafts, vendor referrals, to coordinating the month/week and day of wedding- Fidan and Carly were AMAZING! I could never have imagined the level of responsiveness, enthusiasm, support and patience we would receive. We are so appreciative! Thank you Fidan and Carly for making our wedding day prefect!
