Affordable Dream Weddings and Events helped to make my beach wedding ceremony and reception a success. Prior to hiring their services they invited me to stop by and see the venue decorated in several locations for different clients' events. Each time, I was thoroughly impressed with Affordable Weddings' work. Love, love, loved the venue, just perfect!

Affordable Dream Weddings of South Florida helped me plan my boyfriend’s surprise 40th birthday party and because of her, it went off without a hitch. Her attention to detail, willingness to go the extra mile and impeccable taste are the qualities I look for in an event planner but these days it is hard to find. Working with Marina was an absolute pleasure – she will treat your event as if it is her own.

Affordable Dream Weddings did an excellent job with my wedding. I couldn't be happier with Marina's services. Everything was beautiful from the flowers to the décor to the delicious food. I have already recommended their services to many of my friends. She made my dream wedding a reality.

Affordable Dream Weddings provided us with an all-inclusive package that met our budget needs. She is a total pro and very organized…the type of person even a control freak like me is comfortable handing over the reigns to. She was totally on top of my vendors to make sure everything arrived to the venue smoothly, and her creative eye for interior design came in very useful as she and her assistants set up the mountains of DIY decorations I created for the wedding. Of course on the big day there were a few behind the scenes hiccups here and there (do things ever go perfectly?), but she kept calm & in control and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible. Her hard work totally paid off and thanks to her I was able to let loose, relax, and thoroughly enjoy my wedding day knowing that all of the details were in Marina’s capable hands!

I spent 12 months planning a wedding with Affordable Dream Weddings and came away in awe. Not only could she walk us through all of the different steps in the wedding planning process, she also went out of her way to make sure we found the best venue for our wedding. Since we were not local to our destination, she personally drove to our proposed reception sites to scout them out for us. If you are a person who feels like a wedding planner is an unjustifiable expense and you can do it yourself, think again. I originally was one of those people and am so glad that I chose Marina. Were it not for her, I would remember my wedding as a stressful occasion of managing people and resources instead of having my focus on getting married. I did not even know about everything that went on behind the scenes until after the wedding as I was allowed to bask in the glow of having friends and family from different places all in one room to celebrate my wedding.

Affordable Dream Weddings went above and beyond to make my wedding everything I ever dreamed of and more. They are complete professionals. The head event planner, Marina, is very skilled in creating elegant and unique events at a budget you can afford. I must admit that I have expensive taste but don't always have the budget to meet my expectations. With Affordable Dream Weddings I got the best of both worlds: an event that looked like "a million bucks," as they say, without having to break the bank.

Affordable Dream Weddings did a fantastic job assisting with my company party! When the weather wasn’t cooperative, she made all the necessary calls and arrangements to move our party indoors. Marina helped set up for and break down the party. She also took pictures throughout the event and made sure everything was running on time. We were able to relax and enjoy the party along with our coworkers. She comes HIGHLY recommended. Thank you Affordable Dream Weddings!

I don't even know where to start with this review.
Marina strung us along always needing more money and she never told us what it was going towards.
the "white glove servers" were eating plates at the guests tables and doing the cha cha slide!!!!
My centerpieces were the wrong color
the photographer did not speak english (2 months after wedding and no photos, not even proofs)
I cut the cake before dinner and none of my guests received cake.
she was hunting me down for an extra $500 then I paid her $1,900 over our contract quote
Also, before the wedding i had problems reaching her, so i had to go through the DJ who had said he has had to be the mediator between her and the clients many times because it was not the first time clients had called him asking for help on how to deal with her.
Thankfully it my friends and family made it a special day but I hired a wedding planner do help with stress and she was nothing but a huge stress for me and my husband!
STAY AWAY!

If you want to have a nice wedding do not call reiken weddings. Marina was never available when I needed her. She always wants more money than you agree on and you will not get what you pay for. When I got to the venue which I had to find on my own we were three tables short for our guest and the set up was a joke. She asked us for more money the night of the event and she said it was because the servers complained that they wanted more money. The photographer didn't speak English and I had to pay him more money to come take pictures of me getting ready. Once we recieved our cd with the pictures we were so disappointed to see that a child could've taken better photos than him. He didn't fix our photos, there were shadows everywhere and they were out of focus. Completely unprofessional aside from more than half of our pictures not even being on the cd. We spent so much money with marina and got nothing we were promised. I paid to have a candy buffet that didn't exist and half of the food wasn't what we tried at the tasting which we had to force her to do because she didn't want to have a tasting for us. Her employees were mingling with my guest which is very unprofessional. I would not recommend affordable dream weddings/ reiken weddings to anyone and if you plan on having an event and wanted to hire her I'd advise you to not waist your money.

TOP TEN REASONS WHY I DO NOT RECOMMEND AFFORDABLE DREAM WEDDING.....
1. She is very hard to reach.
2. The food at my wedding was NOTHING like what I tasted at the Food tasting. Half of my guest went somewhere else to eat after my wedding and the other half who ate the chicken got sollomella poisoning and ended up in the hospital. It was sooo embarrassing. she passed out appetizer that fed less that half of my guess. A lot of people did not taste the appetizer because they ran out. The food was cheap.
3. I bought a box of wedding gifts for my guest and put them in a clear gift box and wrapped all 150 of them into a beautiful bow. It took me three days to do this However, Marina took all of my gifts out of the box and lay the gifts on the table without my permission.
4.She was not at my rehearsal because she had an event the DAY before my wedding. she confused everyone the day of the wedding. One my my bridesmaid end up walking by herself because Marina messed up the order of the guys to walk.
5.Marina was nowhere to be found the entire wedding.
6. My girls bouquet was six road side dried ups roses that was wrapped with a string around the stems. The roses looked like something she did it in her car on the way to the wedding. Honestly. It looked like a project that a kindergartner did for a pretend wedding. And Not to mention, the roses was not the color that we discuss in my contract.
7. My center piece was the wrong color!
8. My photographer showed up the same time as my limo driver even though I paid Marina an extra $100 for him to come and take pics of me and my girls getting our makeup done.
9. My wedding was in May and it's September and I still do not have my video.
10. Ive had so many appointments with Marina where she NEVER showed up.
