A Big Juicy Wedding is joyful, unique and fun.

My goal is simple: A happy couple who get to have the wedding day they have dreamed about.

I partner with couples to create weddings that are beautiful and stress-free.

I tailor my offerings to each couple's needs. We meet and figure out what support you are looking for. It is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Your unique wedding requires your unique planning.

Sometimes that means full service planning and execution.

Sometimes, it means staging an intervention when you have realized that planning it yourself has become overwhelming.

Sometimes it means meeting a couple one month prior to their wedding date to take over the actual execution of the event.

I am committed to keeping you sane! You get to hand over the stressful parts of planning, as I manage the timelines and checklists and do the researching and running around.

I love projects of different sizes. Offbeat and traditional. Budgets big and small.

I look forward to seeing what we can create together!

Dominique and Big Juicy Events were absolutely instrumental in making our wedding a success. We relied on Dominique's experience to negotiate key discounts with vendors, select the perfect florist, and seamlessly incorporate some of our less conventional ideas into the ceremony. She was professional, charming, and absolutely on top of every aspect of the evening. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

My husband and my story of meeting the incomparable, Dominique Bell is somewhat non-traditional. Due to a unique situation, our wedding was filmed and will air as part of a docu-series on ABC Family called “Becoming Us”. Dominique was introduced to me through word of mouth only two months before our nuptials. All it took was a phone meeting and I knew this was my wedding planner. The fire and passion in her voice told me that she was going to get things done in the most efficient, organized, and kindest way possible.

I didn’t think she could get better; then I met her.

Dominique is truly remarkable. She is everything you could need (or dream of) in a wedding planner. She alleviates as much stress as possible when it comes to your big day AND does it with style! Because our day included a camera crew, as well as our guests, we had an interesting added element with which to deal. Dominique handled this unique detail beautifully and made sure that our wedding truly felt like OUR wedding, for us and our guests (You might even see her in action in an episode or two airing in June).

I would highly recommend her expertise to any couple seeking an efficient and talented planner. From a large three hundred person celebration to a small intimate wedding this woman (and her assistants) can do it all. My husband and I are still pinching ourselves that things went as smoothly as they did. She made our wedding day dreams come true with ease and we were lucky to have her!

We can't say enough about the amazing work Dominique did for us and our wedding. We hired her for day of co-ordination of our wedding, we are based in the UK and needed someone state-side to do the last minute details. Dominique was the best decision we made, we didn't need to do a thing on the day... everything was carefully arranged and planned and she completely understood our vision for a low key and intimate day.
Dominique is still famous amongst our guests at the wedding Ninja.. who can make anything magically happen in an instant!

When my husband and I were searching for a wedding planner, we were really just searching for a month of coordinator- what we got was so much more. Dominique was the 3rd and final wedding planner we had interviewed, and I remember clearly the thing that set her apart from the other planners was that she understood that our wedding was not just a big party with a lot of moving parts that needed to be managed; she understood that this was a huge emotional undertaking, at a chunky financial cost, bringing together two different cultures, and all the little nuances that come with that.

My husband and I had done the majority of the vendor search, but Dominique had set us up with our DJ and florist, and they were both amazing. We just got married last week and our friends have not been able to stop telling us that we had the wedding of the year. I had worked on a bunch of little DIY details, and Dominique and her team implemented them perfectly! I did not even touch a single item the day of the wedding. I had an incredibly stress free time getting ready in my venue, casually taking a peek at the set-up process, and by the time I had finally walked down the aisle and saw everything in place, I was utterly overwhelmed at how perfect everything was.

When friends and family ask us how we felt on our wedding day, among our responses of happy, elated, drunk in love, sad that it went by too fast...we always say and will always say, we don't know how anyone else gets married without Dominique!

No matter where a wedding is held, planning one involves a lot of moving parts, and it can be stressful at times. Planning a wedding to be held in New York City while living in San Francisco makes it even more interesting!

We hired Dominique to help us plan and coordinate our cross-country wedding. She was extremely friendly, very professional and responsive to our questions throughout the process.

On our wedding day, she absolutely shined and took away any concerns we had about how it would all come together. She is incredibly organized and took charge, allowing us to enjoy our day with our family and friends. I would highly recommend Dominique's services to anyone getting married in the New York City area, whether the couple lives locally or long distance.

Dominique and Big Juicy Events was, in short, everything we could have asked for and then some.

Originally we were looking for a “day of” coordinator for our wedding and what we got was much more than that. Working with Dominique, we explained what we were looking to do and she totally got it. There was a “click” between all of us that made the planning of everything easy and stress-free.

Dominique was technically our “month of” coordinator. About 30 days before the wedding we met with her to pass off all of the work we had done to that point and she was able to take the ball and run with it. Her execution was flawless and her attention to every detail was meticulous. And even though she was technically only our “month of” coordinator she checked in with us periodically to make sure we were on track to have the wedding we had been imagining – nine months, six months, three months, two months. We felt that Dominique was with us every step of the way to answer questions, recommend vendors, and allay any of our concerns.

The wedding planning game is a tough one to play; however, when you have an advocate like Dominique guiding you away from pitfalls she’s seen over and over again, it certainly makes the whole experience much more pleasant. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Dominique and her services and would recommend her many, many times over.

Choosing to hire Dominique Bell as our day-of-coordinator was the smartest decision we made!!! I cannot say enough good things about her and Big Juicy Events. My husband and I found her to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our wedding was highly complex. With our venue only providing tables and chairs, everything else had to be outsourced and there were several different vendors that she had to oversee and coordinate. Watching her do so, with ease, only confirmed that it would have been impossible for us to handle on our own. She's bright, funny as ever, creative, organized and could not have been more of a delight to work with. I have only admitted this to my husband, but - i'm really sad that I won't be able to work with her anymore. I truly enjoyed our time together! I cannot thank her enough for keeping me calm (and in the present moment) and going above and beyond to make our day the best it could be. I highly recommend you hire her if you want the wedding of your dreams!

Dominique is absolutely the best investment for anyone's wedding budget. She is fun, attentive, thorough, creative, and extremely passionate about what she does. Initially, I did not think I was going to use a wedding planner to coordinate day execution. After looking at my long list, I knew I needed help. I found Dominique on Yelp because of her strong reviews. From the first communication, I knew I had to work with Dominique. She asked me my vision in great detail, and informed me on how she would bring my vision to life and how much it would cost. She is very upfront and clear on what she can do for you. She goes above and beyond. I cannot express how happy and satisfied I was with Dominique's service- she is the best and I hope you use her for your special day- after all, no one should be worried on their wedding day and she makes sure of that!

After choosing our venue & wedding date, I was about to start a new job & was starting to get overwhelmed with wedding planning, but I didn't want someone to take over planning everything, because I still knew what I wanted for the most-part, just not how to execute it. After convincing my fiancé that the added cost would be worth it, I began my search right here on Wedding Wire. Dominique responded to me within 24 hrs, we set up a meeting, and immediately clicked. Since I still wanted to choose most things myself, we went with a "Day of Coordinator w/ additional Planning Support" package.
Right away, she helped us divide up our overall budget and gave us a timeline. Over the course of a year & a half, she referred us to our DJ (who was awesome), helped me look for other vendors and look over their contracts, came bridesmaid dress shopping with us, & came to one of my gown fittings (where she pointed out to my seamstress that the bustle didn’t look right, which was really helpful because I wouldn’t have known what to look for, and it looked better after they fixed it).
On our big day, Dominique & her 2 assistants were absolutely amazing. There were some snafus with our venue (they changed their onsite coordinator on us shortly before the wedding, and the new guy was a little clueless) that she dealt with and shielded us from, so we could enjoy our day. She only got us involved when necessary, and some of the issues we didn’t even hear about until later after they were taken care of, which was great. As far as the guests could tell, everything was perfect. She stayed until the end of the night and made sure I was happy, and even brought my comfortable shoes from my room to me at the after-party before calling it a night, and then followed up with us after the wedding to make sure we were satisfied with everything. Most importantly, she kept me calm when I needed it, & made everything run as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

I'm not sure how we would have kept our sanity throughout the wedding-planning process without Dominique. We hired her for day-of coordination because we liked that her approach to day-of work included some advance work (to make sure the day ran smoothly), guaranteed her availability for the entire weekend of the wedding, and would include services personalized to our wedding's needs (vendor recs, expert advice, etc). The other options I'd explored for day-of coordination were limited to a set number of hours on the day/weekend and included minimal, if any, advance planning.

Everything we needed help with, Dominique delivered -- vendor recommendations and negotiation assistance, contract reviews, shopping trips to Chelsea market, floor plan strategies, timing suggestions, and brilliant incorporation of all of the ideas and vendors we'd already planned. And that doesn't even begin to cover the weekend itself, when she went above and beyond. She stored all of our flowers in her apartment for three days, made the most beautiful table arrangements and bridal bouquet (and found extra to make a posy for my grandma's walker), calmed my parents, gave us feedback on getting the bridal party down the aisle in a coordinated fashion, made sure we didn't see each other until the ceremony, and -- for this she wins the Nobel Prize of Coordination -- kept everything running smoothly when the building's only elevator broke 30 minutes before the (1st floor) ceremony and we didn't know how we'd get a grandmother in a wheelchair, an ice cream cart, and a surprise brass band up to the 3rd floor for the reception. Not only did she save the day, but when we returned to our apartment exhausted that night, we found her lugging leftover beer, wine, and soda into our living room, sorting them by which could be returned. She. Does. Not. Stop.

I've already recommended her to loads of friends. I can't recommend her highly enough. Hire this woman to coordinate your wedding!
