Ashley was the month of coordinator (plus some extra services!) for our wedding, and honestly, she was our best hire. She came on the recommendation of our photographer, and after I met with her, I stopped meeting with other planners immediately. She is an amazing planner, who helps you find your vision and then adds those extra touches you would never think of to make it truly spectacular. She is professional, responsive, and she is always out for the best for her clients. She gave us wonderful recommendations for vendors and she was able to put up with and manage a little bit of family drama leading up to the wedding. Just truly went above and beyond. She made us feel like guests at our own wedding so we could actually enjoy the day. If I did it all over again, she would be my planner and the first person I signed a contract with. Couldn't have done it without her.

Where to begin..... When we finally decided we were going to be using a wedding planner we searched online and quickly found that this was not going to be an easy search. After a pretty rough start to this search, we met Ashley!!! What a breath of fresh air. She was easy to talk to, we had a lot in common, she was interesting and seemed genuine right off the bat. We found our wedding planner!
Working with Ashley was easy and kept me sane. Although I don't quite consider myself a typical bride, the amount of details out there are overwhelming! She worked with us (mostly me, ha!) to keep things in line and in the budget and still have a tasteful wedding. She totally put up with me and gave her input when I was trying to narrow down a dress, and even went shopping with me! As we got even closer to the wedding, she was readily available pretty much whenever I needed her. She was a lifesaver throughout the planning process and leading all the way up to the day of our wedding. She was our planner and now has become a friend. We couldn't have asked for a better match for us. Thank you, Ashley!

I was lucky enough to witness Ashley's amazing work first hand at one of my best friend's weddings and didn't have to think twice to sign her up to plan when it was time for mine! Ashley was instrumental in making our wedding a wonderful success and bringing our vision to life. She is a complete professional and gave 200% to any task she took on, both big and small. Ashley's vendor recommendations were flawless and she was the perfect resource for any questions that came up from day 1 of planning until the day of the wedding. She was always accessible, approachable, and responsive -- all things that are imperative when planning a wedding. On the day of, she kept everything and everyone running on time, had checked, double checked, and triple checked all the important details and always maintained her upbeat, positive attitude and infectious enthusiasm. We could not have done it without her - she made it possible for us to have a completely stress-free day and the best time. It would be a complete no-brainer to choose to work with her, do yourself a favor and contact Ashley NOW, you won't regret it. Thank you, Ashley - you're the best!

Ashley is worth her weight in gold! We used her day of coordination services for our wedding in Brooklyn and she was beyond fantastic. Even though we brought her in only a few weeks before the big day, she hit the ground running and gathered all my plans and vendors and really helped pull everything together and structure the day. Her experience in the industry and dealing with vendors was invaluable. She was incredibly responsive and supportive and accommodating to any unique requests we had.
On the wedding day she was prompt, professional, and so incredibly CALM. Her serene attitude really set the tone for the day and settled my nerves even when things weren't going 100% to plan. I consider myself pretty organized, but as a bride I lost all sense of time.
Ashley was instrumental in keeping us on schedule and politely directed my husband and I to the next portion of the party all evening. She stayed until the bitter end and consistently had a smile on her face. Ashley was such an incredible pleasure to be around and work with. I cannot recommend her services enough!!

At first I had a very stressful time looking for a wedding planner. Planning a wedding is stressful, spending more money than you have ever spent on a single day is overwhelming! I didn't know exactly what a wedding planner did or if I needed one.
Trust me you need a wedding planner especially Ashley! My husband and I refer to her as our angel, she made every stressful moment melt away. Ashley basically choreographs the evening from beginning to end, she makes sure everything gets delivered on time, staff is present, wedding favors, decorations, guestbook, polaroid cameras everything is accounted for. She makes sure the place settings are perfect that all name tags are in the right spot at the right table, that my husband and I are comfortable the entire night and that guests have everything they need. What doesn't she do?
She starts planning with you months in advance, she gave us a timeline with due dates so we knew what we needed to be accountable for, I loved this. On your wedding day she is the first one there and the last one to leave making sure everything gets broken down swept up and left cleaner than you found it. I was so nervous the day of my wedding I forgot to bring my vows she had them printed on site. She was available at all times throughout the planning process. I was late in the game to find a dress and she came with me so I didn't have to go alone. We were in the heart of Brooklyn running around in the rain and we found my dream dress. I can't say enough great things about her, she is just a real down to earth hard working woman who is smart, sweet, and the kind of person you want to have at your side when you want your day to be perfect. She is very organized, has a great understanding of where to go based on the style of dress you're looking for, has great recommendations for veils, flowers, music, photography, really anything you need. A few times I was worried about sticking within my budget and she was very helpful to research with me in order to stick to that. Our wedding was non-traditional and she was perfectly in line with whatever we wanted to do. She encouraged us to make the day 100% about us, which really helped in the decision making process. After all was said and done I gained a friend from the whole experience. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone that wants to work with someone that has complete devotion and passion for what they do. She is the best, hurry up and book her...I promise every decision you make after that will be a piece of cake.

Ashley from Dulce Dreams Events is absolutely wonderful. She is the best part of my wedding planning. She made my dream wedding came true! My family is not in the U.S., I had to plan the wedding all by myself. It would be impossible without Ashley's help. I was engaged August 2013 and quickly after that I started to look for a wedding planner. I was planning for a small wedding with 50 guests and I already have a location in mind.
I used yelp to find 5 or 6 wedding planners and talked with each of them over the phone. Ashley was the fastest to return my email and the first wedding planner I met personally. In addition, her price is very reasonable compare to all the other wedding planner I talked with. After meeting with Ashley, I decided to use her on the spot. She is a very energetic and charming person. We clicked right away.
Over the 8 months of wedding planning, Ashley held my hand and walked me through every single step. She recommended vendors for hair/makeup, floral, DJ and party rental company, the vendors were professional and provided great services. She came to every single vendor meeting with me and worked with me remotely when I moved from NYC to San Francisco during middle of my wedding planning. She is very flexible and tried her best to meet my requests.
On my wedding day, she was there from the beginning to the end to make sure everything went smoothly. My wedding was very romantic, intimate and fun. All my guests enjoyed the party. My family and my in-laws were all happy about the wedding. I would highly recommend Ashely to anyone who wants a perfect wedding in NYC!
