Amazing experience for destination wedding in Mexico

We were referred to Fidan and her team from a close friend who were really happy with their experience. We were planning a destination wedding in Mexico and Milena was our lead planner and we could not be happier with the whole experience. Fidan and Milena were so great to deal with during the planning stages and were constantly on top of everything with the vendors and helped to keep us on track.

For the actual wedding, Milena was there all week with us and provided amazing service. It actually rained during our ceremony and Milena was able to work with the venue to pivot and execute a back up plan and it ended up being perfect! We would highly recommend their services and could not be happier with the entire experience.

Most Amazing August wedding!

There are too many good things to contain in one review but we’ll try! The whole team at Designed Dream who helped us plan our dream wedding were amazing! Fidan, Kimia, and Milena are the best! From day one we felt like we were part of a family and they were there to support us in every aspect - from design to the day of, we couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Our whole planning experience was so smooth, coming from someone who is very visual and creative, I found that no matter what we suggested they found a way to incorporate it. From the colour scheme to incorporating our cultural traditions everything was perfect.

We received many compliments on how smooth the whole event was from our guests and that’s what we wanted to hear!

Thank you so much to everyone who helped plan the most special day to us! We highly recommend the whole team and can’t thank them enough!

Katrina & Michael ❤️

Exceptional team

Designed Dream Events exceeded all expectations! We purchased the one-month wedding planning package and it was the greatest decision we could have made for our wedding. There are so many things that you need to do for a wedding, and so many that you may not think of (especially if it’s your first time!), so having an EXCEPTIONALLY ORGANIZED expert to help you along the way—and then be there to execute your day—is soooo key. Prior to our wedding, the DD team worked with us to help us find vendors that matched our vision and ensure that we have all wedding contracts completed. Then, they worked with our vendors to execute the wedding exactly as we had hoped! Truly, while we already felt confident about our day thanks to the DD team’s INCREDIBLE SUPPORT AND PROFESSIONALISM during the planning process, we did not anticipate just how incredible Fidan and Milena would be on the day itself. They MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE CELEBRITIES the whole day—escorting you, guiding you, supporting your family, communicating with headphones and microphones to all the vendors—it was amazing. Our day was nothing short of FLAWLESS, which we know will make for AMAZING LIFELONG MEMORIES. We are thus sooo grateful to them and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to others!

10/10 the best!


Having our wedding planned by Fidan, was the most amazing experience.
She has the right attitude and personality to plan a stressful event and we really appreciated that during the planning process.
The vendors she chose for us, met our expectations and everything went so smoothly on our wedding day. My fiancé and I were completely stress-free and didn’t have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding.
She was always available to answer our questions, and to answer our calls. I am a perfectionist bride, and Fidan’s help was beyond my expectations.
We had a few hiccups here and there as any wedding would, but Fidan was always there to support us. What a big smile and a calm personality.
We highly recommend Fidan for Destination Weddings specially, if you want a hassle free wedding.

A True Dream Team!

Milena and Sharaf of the Designed Dream team were incredible to work with while planning our wedding.
They worked with us the month before the wedding and day-of.
I could not have asked for better planners. They were professional, attentive and most importantly, flexible. Although I added some challenges (i.e. not doing a first look and squeezing in a receiving line), they were honest about the downsides, but ultimately made it work as best they could to ensure our day was exactly as we envisioned it.
I also appreciated that they gave us vendor referrals that met our budget and needs leading up to the day.
The day ran smoothly and we were truly able to enjoy ourselves because we knew everything was in the best of hands.
Thank you Milena and Sharaf!

Outstanding Wedding Planner

I had the pleasure of working with Fidan as my wedding planner for my destination wedding in Punta Cana, and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. From the beginning, Fidan was extremely organized, responsive, and attentive to all of my needs and preferences. She worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail of my wedding was perfect and that my day was stress-free.

Fidan's expertise in the industry was evident throughout the planning process, and she offered valuable insights and recommendations on everything from venue selection to menu planning. She even suggested the best vendors for photographers, hair and makeup artist, and MC, who all did an amazing job on the day.

Her attention to detail was impeccable, and she went above and beyond to make my wedding day truly special. Overall, I cannot recommend Fidan enough to anyone looking for a wedding planner. She is professional, organized, and truly cares about her clients and their special day. Thank you, Fidan, for making my destination wedding a dream come true!

extremely happy with Designed dream Fidan, Mandy and team

I had to move my wedding twice during covid, DD team have always came through for me. They were flexible to work with and they made sure to check in, connect and align with ALL OF MY 15 vendors. This group of women are amazing, I don't know how I could have done my wedding without them. They made sure there was a detailed agenda for the day of and it went without a glitch. I can't ask for a better planning team than this group of ladies. I genuinely would recommend them to anybody who is looking and they are THE BEST team in town. They know what the heck they are doing and they are the best.

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!
