I could not be more satisfied with our experience using Dream Wedding and Event Planners and our decision to hire Kathy and her amazing team. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and it is well worth the money to use her full wedding planning service! My husband and I always knew that we would get married in our home state of Michigan, but because we have lived out of state for a few years, we knew we would need some help. We were totally clueless on what to do and where to start. I started researching wedding and event planners immediately after our engagement and set up a few meetings with several in the area. We knew the moment that we met Kathy that she was the coordinator for us! She was extremely organized, easy to talk to, and knew all of the right questions to ask. By the end of our first meeting, I felt like she knew the two of us and had our entire vision in her mind. We hired her on the spot and never regretted our decision once!
Being out of state and working full time, we had only limited time to email her, call her in the evenings and meet on the weekends when we were in town. Kathy was extremely flexible with this and not only did she make us feel like we were her only wedding, she was also incredible at responding back as quickly as possible. She is extremely organized and was on top of everything during the entire planning process. She has a full network of the most talented vendors in the area, and she recommended the most amazing and professional people for our wedding that she knew would be best for the two of us. And one of the things that we liked most was her constant effort to make sure that our wedding was everything that we wanted and that it incorporated both of our different styles. Plus, she also made sure that my husband gave his opinion on our decisions and was our biggest supporter of including a Spiderman on our cake for him (it is easy to get caught up in the moment and to forget that they want to be involved, too). She truly went the extra mile to make sure we were completely satisfied with everything!
While Kathy was very helpful and informative in our selection of vendors, her true benefit came in the weeks leading up to the wedding. She made sure that all of our vendors had our schedule, knew where to go, and that all of the little details I didn’t even know about were accounted for. The entire week before the wedding, I found that I was surprisingly calm and relaxed because I knew we were in good hands. And as much as you try to avoid any problems on the day of the wedding, sometimes things happen that are beyond your control. Luckily, Kathy has an amazing emergency kit with everything that you can possibly think of, and she was able to save the day more than once. It is possible that there were many other things that went wrong that day, but if there were any issues, I was not aware of any of them because Kathy and her assistant handled everything. Also, because of her vast experience in this profession, she creates an extremely detailed schedule for everyone to follow. This not only made the day run seamlessly, but even allowed my parents to relax and have a fantastic time! It truly makes for a very fun, happy, and peaceful day when you don’t have to worry about anything.
My husband and I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding than the one that we had. It was unique and perfect for us, and was truly a fairy tale wedding! We still get compliments from all of our guests about how amazing the venue, food, service, DJ, and photography were! It really was one of the best days of my life, and was all made possible because of Kathy and her fantastic team at Dream Wedding and Event Planners. I would highly recommend them to everybody!
Before I hired Kathy, I didn’t know if I even had enough time to get ready for the wedding on 3.3.12. That was such a tight period from mid Jan 2012 to the wedding day. That was only 40 days to prepare. I didn't know anything about wedding planning. When we first met Kathy, after a few minutes of talking, 100% confidence came to me. Yes, Kathy brought back our confidence and passion. That’s why during the period we were planning, we trusted each other like a great partnership.
Kathy and her group are very, very nice and professional, more than I expected. She has a large relationship network with every kind of vendor you may need. She has a professional schedule and timeline to help you out and you don't need to worry. So, although there was only 40 days to prepare everything some couples plan for one year or even longer), and sometimes I don't know the words to describe our preparation because I am Chinese and not perfect with English, Kathy and we finally made it in such a short time!! It was not that rushed, and in a strict step by step plan, everything was perfect and smooth. I really want to thank Kathy and her planning group for helping us out.
I will say every dollar you spend with Dream Wedding and Event Planners is way worth it. They charge a good price with supreme service. Your Wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. Dream Wedding and Event Planners is your best choice!!
They did a perfect job. They figured out everything, more than we could have imagined. Thank you Dream Wedding Planners, so, so much.

Kathy Byrum did a phenomenal job of planning our wedding in our front and backyards. She is the only wedding planner I found in the area that had experience with planning outdoor weddings at private residences. I cannot say enough good about her responsiveness, professionalism, and helpfulness. When the DJ's speakers broke right before the ceremony she managed to find a solution quickly and quietly without ever bothering me or my husband. I would HIGHLY recommend her as a wedding planner.
My husband and I hired Kathy Byrum of Dream Wedding and Event Planners as a day of coordinator for our wedding. We were beyond impressed with the services she and her assistants provided for us. Kathy met with Mikel and me multiple times prior to our wedding and even provided several excellent vendor referrals including DJ services, floral and linens, jewelry and accessories to name a few. Kathy and her assistants were extremely professional and made sure Mikel and I had a 100% stress-free wedding day. Her assistants, Cindy and Linda were at our venue hours before the wedding to assist every outside vendor as they made their deliveries. Our reception venue was strict with timing and Kathy and her team made sure the entire evening ran smoothly even during a severe thunderstorm and tornado watch! We were pleased with our decision to hire Kathy and her team and feel it was money well spent!
