I waited pretty late to realize I should hire a day-of coordinator, and I'm so glad I found Your Dream Day. I needed help setting up my ceremony (meeting chair delivery, decorating) and reception (dropping off decorations, overseeing set up, etc) and the 5-hour day-of package perfectly suited my needs. I worked with Kathy during prep who was so responsive, great with all of my questions, and with Kerry as my day-of coordinator. In the week before the wedding, I emailed with Kerry, we met to discuss final details and arrange logistics, and the day of she was prompt, energetic, kind, and so, so helpful! I trusted her completely and it freed my mind to focus on my fiance, family, friends, celebration and marriage - that's what it's all about! She did a wonderful job and I'm so grateful.

Kathy and her associates made our daughter's wedding a thousand times easier to enjoy. They handled all of those little details that we thought about for months and those that we never thought of and took many of our worries and concerns away. Kathy was excellent in coordinating with us and putting my daughter's mind at ease. We really appreciated so much all of extra things Kathy did after the wedding from aiding us in cleaning up to returning our tuxedos for us and many more things in between. We were quite relieved after such a big day. Kathy and her team made believers out of us about the benefit of having an excellent wedding planner and definitely played a big part in making the wedding and reception a beautiful and huge success. It was a delight to have Kathy and her team as our daughter Aimee's wedding planner.

I used Kathy as my wedding planner for my wedding. The wedding was on a Friday, which made my rehearsal on a Thursday, thus creating a less than ordinary wedding calendar of events.
Kathy attended and orchestrated the rehearsal wonderfully. Some crucial members of rehearsal arrived about half an hour late so we had about 20 minutes to do the physical run through of the processional. Kathy had done so much planning/organizing/communicating before the run through that it went perfectly and there was no need to do a second run through.
The day of the wedding Kathy showed up with an entire suitcase full of items that I may or may not need during the course of the day. She was on time and ready for anything. She spent the morning communicating with every vendor and making sure that everyone was on schedule.
During the wedding and reception she played more of a behind the scenes role. I didn't see her a lot after the processional but I know she was there because everything went according to plan.
When my husband and I arrived in our honeymoon suite that night what we saw was stunning. There were rose petals, candles, cake, and champagne waiting our arrival. It was such a special touch that meant a lot to us.
The wedding was absolutely perfect and went off without a single hitch. This was largely due to Kathy and her help with planning and organizing before, during, and after the wedding. Kathy is an amazing planner and I don't know what I would have done without her! I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for or are even considering a planner.

Kathy is a one of a kind wedding planner. She has connections to everything you could possibily need, and most of them are at the touch of your fingertips right in her office. She helped me along every step of the planning process. Her opinions were very helpful in narrowing down the endless possibilities that a bride has when planning her perfect wedding. Kathy was able to take my concept and turn it into a perfect reality and a perfect wedding day. I would recommend her to any bride.

There are so many details you lose sight of when it gets down to crunch time. Kathy was excellent! She kept me calm and helped me take care of all the loose ends. She reminded me of important things I would have forgotten about. I felt much better knowing Kathy was there the day of my wedding to keep things going smoothly. Kathy knows her stuff when it comes to weddings and she is very passionate about what she does. She is wonderful to work with and full of vendor suggestions that made it so easy to pick other trust worthy vendors. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a life saver!

Being the groom, I didn't really grow up thinking of my wedding day. But with the help of Kathy and Your Dream Day Cafe, I can unequivocally say that it will be one of the best days of my life. I never had to worry about anything regarding the execution of the details on the day of the ceremony, and Kathy was great in handing potential last-minute issues. Although I don't plan on getting married a second time, it was awesome to work with Kathy.

We were so impressed with Kathy from Your Dream Day. As an event planner myself and an out of town bride, I wanted someone I could completely trust and Kathy was it. Not only did she understand my vision, she completely loved every detail (even if there were a hundred!) and was on board to make it THE most special day of our lives. Kathy and her team were there to make absolutely everything perfect for us and the day could not have gone any smoother.

Kathy was not only an amazing vendor she has also become a friend! I can't wait to stop by the cafe everytime I am in town! :)

I originally went to Cady for my floral arrangements. She was very accomodating with my changing schedule, but worked around it to set up times that were convient for me. Cady was very interested in making this one part of my wedding day perfect. She listened to what I had envisioned for me wedding and made the appropriate suggestions that would fit in my budget!

But Your Dream Day Cafe offers much more to offer! There are cake samples from local bakeries, sample table arrangements, candy buffets and an entire section filled with information from local vendors! You can always find information online, but it's not the same as being able to look and compare services among many vendors. Plus, the staff is always nearby to offer suggestions.

If you're planning a wedding in the Dayton area, you MUST check out Your Dream Day Cafe!

Kathy and her team from Your Dream Day are phenomenal! We used the Day of the Ceremony service and couldn't have been happier with the results. Kathy was with us for the rehearsal, making sure all went as planned, and all day on our wedding day. During the week leading up to the wedding she confirmed all of our vendors were on track and handled any last minute questions that came up. We had an issue with our caterer with regard to the cake cutting and Kathy took the situation in hand to make sure that what needed to happen did indeed happen, going well above what was asked of her in our contract. She kept track of all of the minor details, which allowed me, my husband, our wedding party and our families to truly enjoy the day. I highly recommend Your Dream Day to any brides looking for a coordinator/planner. This will be, by far, one of the best investments you will make for your wedding day!

I am actually the Mother of the Bride and I hired a wedding co-ordinator to make my daughters wedding day as stressless for me as possible, and that is exactly what happened. I had a totally relaxed and stressfree day in large part because of Kathy from Your Dream Day. I had initially engaged Jean from Weddings From The Heart then because of a death in her family Kathy had to take over 2 days before the wedding. You would have thought Kathy had been there from day one. Everything went seamlessly. I would highly recommend both planners but especially Your Dream Day because that is exactly the type of wedding day we had.

My husband and I got married a couple weeks ago, and my mom really wanted to have a day-of wedding coordinator. I was unsure, and argued that we could handle everyone ourselves and we didn't need one. But she insisted and hired one. Long-story-short, our coordinator had an emergency and could not be at our wedding. (We found out 3 days prior to our wedding!). She talked to Kathy, the owner of Your Dream Day, who agreed to be with us the day of our wedding. I was wondering, how in three days can someone possibly get everything together? But, let me say, the day of our wedding without Kathy we would have been in trouble!!! She thought of things we never would have thought about (like bringing something to put the Unity Candle in-we never would have thought of that!). She scoped out the sites prior to our wedding day and found which areas were good for getting ready, which had air conditioning and which were hot! She attended the rehearsal and was good at keeping our rowdy group focused without being harsh. The day of, she even brought a cooler full of water and snacks for us! She kept everything and everyone on time (even the groomsmen!), and attended to all of my needs, questions, nerves, etc. Kathy figured out my bustle (which no one else could!) was on her hands and knees spot cleaning my train, and right before the Church doors opened she gave me a hug and reminded me to enjoy every minute, that this was our day:) Throughout the day, she would come to me if I needed her (same for my husband) and all other times she was making sure everything was going smoothly. She even brought sandwiches to the guys while they were getting ready! Also, she confirmed everything with all our vendors, and was there personally to make sure everything arrived and was in good shape. I could go on-and-on about everything she did, but to sum it up, Kathy did it ALL! After our wedding, I had to agree with my mom that we not only needed a wedding coordinator for the day-of, but we needed Kathy. She was efficient, calming, and just so sweet and fun to be around. She had a true positive energy that was exactly what we wanted and needed. Kathy was one person that we could not have done without, and I highly recommend working with her if you want your wedding day to be as smooth and wonderful as ours!

I was very happy with the services provided by Your Dream Day. My planner worked closely with me for over two weeks before my wedding to help me with the final details and to ease my concerns. On my wedding day, she was in charge of everything, and did an awesome job of making sure that things ran smoothly and according to the plans I made. All of her hard work took the pressure off of me and allowed me to enjoy the time with my husband, friends, and family instead of worrying about the details. Just as it should be. I would recommend Your Dream Day to all brides!

I had recently moved to the area with my fiance (no friends or family in the area) and had no idea where to start with my wedding. Hiring her made my life 100 times easier and I actually go to enjoy my wedding. She handled all the problems, was always cheerful and enthusiastic to work with, and went above and beyond to make my wedding wonderful. I would recommend her to anyone and am thankful to have had her help planning my big day.

Kathy and her team at Your Dream Day provided me with excellent service, advice and guidance during my year long engagement. Not only did Kathy assist me in planning my wedding on a professional wedding, but she became a friend. She spent time with me and understood what my vision was and helped me make it a reality - more than I ever imagined possible - within my budget limits. She is amazing. Cincinnati's Best Kept Wedding Secret!

We hired Kathy of Your Dream Day because I was an extremely picky bride and needed a planner that focused in the details, she did a terrific job! She also dropped off my bouquet to be preserved so that I could leave for my honeymoon without worrying.

Kathy was a huge help. We hired her for the "day of" the wedding planning/coordination/organization. She was very organized and gave us (at least me!) the confidence that someone other than the Bride knew all that had to happen to make it all come together. We used her guidance on a few things months before the wedding, as she was always only a call or email away and that alone was very helpful and reassuring. Overall, we were very pleased to have found Kathy.

We enjoyed our experience with Your Dream Day. It was nice to be able to just hand everything over to them and have them take care of all of little details that I just didn't want to worry about on my wedding day. However, we did have several comments that the coordiantors were rude and pusshy with our guests. I am not happy about this and I feel like our guests were really taken aback by the attitude that was given to them when some of our guests had come from hundreds some thousands of miles aways. Other than this it was wonderful to have them be apart of our big day!

Your Dream Day responded with the following comments:

Amanda, I'm glad we had the chance to chat this morning! We are thrilled that you, your husband, your mother and your bridal party were very happy with our services. Most importantly, I'm glad we could discuss the comment you made about our staff being rude to a few guests. It sounds like the information was given to you second-hand by one person, who was told this by a few out-of-town guests. If that was the impression they were given by our staff I truly apologize. We don't interact with your guests that often during the day. There was a situation where several guests were trying to enter the church while you were in the middle of your ceremony processional and we told them, dispite their repeated attempts to go in anyway, that they could not enter the church until the processional was finished per the request of your officiant. Abbie also said that the ballroom at the Phoenix was closed during your cocktail hour and a few guests were upset about that. That situation was obviously beyond our control because the room was still being setup at the time. We also had a guest try to walk off with one of your floral arrangements and we politely told her that you were donating them to Bethany House and not giving them to guests. In all situations, I believe we were acting in your wedding's best interest and I'm glad that you understand that. I also appreciate the candid feedback and that it seems like a few guests took direction that was in the overall best interest of the event personally. Thanks so much and best wishes for a happy marriage!

I'm glad that you would recommend our services, although I am concerned about the rating that you gave your consultant, Ann, on responsiveness and flexibility. We want to make sure that all of our clients are getting 4 and 5 star service from our consultants across the board! Please contact me so that we can discuss the specific concerns that you had at 513-241-2777.

Since your wedding last year, we have added a complimentary commercial steamer service; complimentary rentals (such as votive holders, unity candles, vases, etc.) with a refundable deposit; continental breakfast; and a case of cold bottled water with every wedding planning package on the day of the wedding to add to the value of our service.

I hope married life is treating you well!
