Jason and I were very impressed with Designed Dream. Fidan was very organized, flexible, professional, and was a pleasant person to work with. Throughout ups and downs of wedding planning, Fidan really made a difference for us. She gave flexible recommendations regarding vendors, she picked out what needs to be fixed on contracts, she informed us if we were going over our budget, and it was always easy to reach her throughout the whole year. I am a very picky person, and communication is number one priority in choosing who I work with. Fidan was flawless in this regard, and she was on top of everything.
Do not even THINK about having a wedding without a coordinator ON THE DAY. It would have been so overwhelming for myself, and the wedding party, if Fidan and her coordinator Carly were not there. We didn't need to set up anything, or worry about the schedule of the day. Fidan and Carly made sure that vendors are on time, everything is set up as planned, they guided us and the wedding party through the itinerary, they were behind the scene the whole night making sure that everything is going well. Many people told me that I will not remember my own wedding day. Well, not me. I ENJOYED, LOVED every moment of the wedding day. I made memories. I didn't think about anything else beside having a great time. It was possible because Fidan and Carly did everything else for us.

Fidan is so fabulous at what she does! She is so professional, enthusiastic, friendly, and organized. We could not have had such an amazing wedding if it wasn't for our wedding planner Fidan. She helped us along the way with giving us her honest opinions, helping to style our vision, and kept us on track. On the day of, Fidan and her team ensured everything went smoothly and ensured we were happy. Thank you so much Fidan!!!!!

I can not express enough my gratitude to Fidan for organizing and coordinating our wedding in a very short period of time. Considering that we only had 2 months to prepare for our destination wedding. She nearly turned an impossible event into absolutely stunning and unforgettable memory. Fidan is the most amassing, caring and always has your best wishes at heart. She made my fairy tale to come true. My special day was worry free, Fidan took care of all arrangements and meetings with vendors and photographer allowing us to concentrate on ourselves. Leading up to the day she was extremely helpful with suggestions whenever we were uncertain. Fidan did a great job getting together our families and directing rehearsal. I have to stress out that her enthusiasm , creativity, professionalism and incredible dedication was carried out through entire process. I would not hesitate to recommend Fidan to anyone and be sure she will make your special magical. I can not imagine having any other person by my side leading our wedding.

I have retained Fidan's services to organize a birthday celebration for my 5-year-old son. I have met with Fidan on couple of occasions prior to the event to discuss the details. She was very attentive and open to the ideas I had for the party; her comments were very helpful and the attention to the detail was impeccable. On the day of the party, the venue was set up beautifully and everything was ready on time and organized with a great skill and enthusiasm. The party was a hit! It was fun for the kids and a pleasure for the adults. I was very impressed with Fidan’s professionalism and the way she handled the whole task. I would definitely retain her services for future events and would highly recommend the services of the Designed Dream Wedding!

Fidan was extremely helpful from the day of our consultation. She was a good source of advice and
made me feel very confident that our special day would run smoothly – and it did! I appreciated her
insights and recommendations. Thank you for enabling us to have a stress-free, beautiful wedding.

It was a pleasure working with Fidan and her team. From our first meeting, she put us as ease and we had total confidence in her. We had a very detailed set up in terms of what we wanted the décor to look like, as well as a significant transition with our ceremony & reception all taking place in the same space. Fidan and her team executed the décor and transition perfectly – it was exactly what we had envisioned and was seamless. Fidan was thorough and professional in coordinating with all of our vendors, keeping everyone on the same page for the wedding day itinerary. Fidan was a calming presence on the day of our wedding, taking special care of us to make sure we had everything we needed and also checking in with our parents. Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding such a special and enjoyable day for us!
Fidan and Kristina,
Michael and I cannot begin to thank you enough for the outstanding services you’ve provided to us on our wedding day and the few months leading up to our wedding day. Without you, my stress levels would have been a lot higher. Thanks to your diligent work of contacting our vendors prior to the wedding, confirming details, and ensuring that everything went as planned, I was able to not only enjoy my wedding day, but I was also able to enjoy the hectic few weeks leading up to the wedding day. I don’t think people realize how many details need to be confirmed and re-confirmed leading up to the day, and your help greatly minimized the amount of work I had to do. On the day of, your assistant Kristina, was so helpful with the picture taking, and your set up of our venue was perfect, just as we asked. My only regret was not hiring you to be our full wedding planner. You guys are amazing and we would definitely recommend you to anyone who is planning their wedding! Thanks to you, we now have amazing memories of our wedding of us having fun and being at ease throughout the day, and that’s priceless!

If you're not quite sure if you really need a day of coordinator - let me tell you something, you do!!!
We had an intimate Sunday afternoon wedding with 30 guests and originally thought we could probably go without having someone there to oversee everything. Thankfully, we chose Fidan to help us for the day.
In the days, weeks and months leading up to our wedding day, Fidan was on top of everything - she kept us on task, always thought of ways we could save money and always had amazing ideas. The days leading up to our wedding day were full of extremely stressful hiccups and having Fidan made everything so much easier. She was our problem solver and a friend who assured us that everything would turn out OK - and it did. The day was incredible and we were free to enjoy it, without stressing about any details or making sure the vendors were on track. Fidan is a true professional - who worked incredibly well with our selected vendors and seemed to anticipate our every need.
Thank you Fidan (and team) for everything! You helped make our day everything we imagined!
In the months leading up to our wedding I thought that I probably didn't need to have a coordinator for the day of. During the last couple of weeks before the wedding I started to suspect I was wrong, and on the day of the wedding I realized that having Fidan and Kristina was essential. No wedding is going to go perfectly, but Fidan and Kristina really took care of everything and anything that came up. Not having to worry about set-up or staying on schedule or any of the other little things that pop up allowed me, my husband, our families and our bridal party to sit back and truly enjoy a wonderful and special day.
When the caterers were making noise during the ceremony, Fidan was there to shush them. When I asked midway through the cocktail hour if flowers could be put on top of the cake, she made it happen.Fidan has a great eye for details and really good judgment, which was important to me. I wanted a planner that I did not have to micromanage, and Fidan really took care of so much without having to be asked.
A few details did not pan out as we had asked, but overall the day was perfect.

I feel like it's taken me so long to write this review because I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am to have had Fidan as my wedding planner. When I started seriously planning my wedding and thinking about all of the elements I needed to figure out/book I became extremely stressed out and knew I needed some professional help.
Fidan has done an incredible job of helping me with pretty much EVERYTHING. She has been efficient, creative and truly cares about her clients. She pours her heart into her work and it definitely shines through. Fidan also has an amazing team and a wide range of fantastic vendors she works with to not only keep us on budget but also ensure our day was fueled by caring talented people!
Our wedding day looked absolutely gorgeous and ran so so smoothly. We could not have asked for a more perfect day and we could not have had that without Fidan and her team.
Now that my wedding day is all said and done I actually miss having to bug Fidan with all of my questions and worries. She is an amazing person and I can't thank her enough.
Also, she basically pays for herself with all the savings you get from just having her as a connection, the piece of mind she provides you, and the minimized stress is all worth it. No regrets.
Thank you so so much Fidan! You're awesome <3
