Megan at Dare to Dream Weddings was in one word, amazing!! Definitely took the stress out of all aspects of our wedding, making it so much more enjoyable and fun to plan! She was available, helpful, had great ideas, and helped us stay on track as the big day approached. She asked all the right questions and would respond quickly whenever I needed something. The day of the wedding, from setup to take down, Megan was there to make sure everything went without a hitch and was just the way we wanted it! If you are looking at a few wedding planners and are undecided or you have just started, Dare to Dream Weddings is professional, experienced and listens to what you want and makes it happen!

We hired Megan for the Sweet Dreams (month of) planning package. I wanted to plan my own wedding, but I/my parents/bridal party didn't want to be bothered with any vendor questions, tipping vendors, etc. on the day of the wedding - this package was the perfect solution. It allowed us to plan the wedding we wanted and truly enjoy it the day of! We loved Megan from the beginning. She was organized from the first meeting, taking extensive notes and never letting any detail slip through the cracks. In those busy days leading up to the wedding, it was a huge relief knowing Megan was calling to confirm all details with each vendor so that we didn’t have to worry about it. Megan really listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted – she ensured all vendors performed as we expected. She was wonderful at the rehearsal and on the day of the wedding. Megan took care of several details, and as the bride, I never felt stressed on the wedding day knowing Megan was there. I would highly recommend Megan; she was an absolute pleasure to work with.

My husband and I got married recently and we had a great experience with Megan of Dare to Dream Weddings . Megan worked with the two of us and my family as a "month of" wedding coordinator. This means that we didn't work with her until one month before the wedding. At that point, we met with Megan and she went over the day of timeline with us, our vendor lists, and our overall vision of how we wanted the day to flow.
Megan was extremely professional. She replied to all of my emails/phone calls in a timely manner, and often got back to me within a few hours... I never waited to hear from her. She was on time for every meeting we had. Megan spent a great deal of time during each meeting to take diligent notes and then report back to us the following day to make sure she had everything correct. She coordinated the day of timeline to our vendors (two of whom were from Chicago and were traveling) perfectly. Megan ran the rehearsal at the church and made sure that the celebrants and the bridal party were on the same page. Megan was also very helpful dealing with the reception site coordinator whom was often difficult to get a hold of. My family and I supplied Megan with a lot of items we wanted at the reception site and she set everything up as we asked. We left the placement of some things up to her discretion and it was perfect!
On our wedding day, Megan was at the church and made sure everything ran smoothly. She was there when a bridesmaid needed safety pins for her dress, and she handled a situation at the reception site (that I didn't learn about until later). Apparently, when our guest sign was being set up (it was a framed image for the guests to sign) it broke. Megan went to Target before the ceremony and went back to the reception to set it up as we had requested. She did all of this without letting us know, as to not make us stressed or worried. At the reception, Megan was there and she was extremely helpful in keeping things moving in the right direction and keeping up with the time.
Overall, I would recommend Megan. She was exactly what my family and I wanted and met our needs as a wedding coordinator. My mom and I wanted to do a lot of the leg work ourselves and with the "month of" coordination, Megan came in a finalized details that we had already set up.

Megan and Jen were both incredibly helpful during the planning process and for the day of our wedding. With gentle reminders every month and guidance where we needed it to organizing the dozens of "little things" that come up during a wedding, I trusted Dare to Dream completely. My day couldn't have happened without them! I absolutely recommend the use of a coordinator.

I planned my wedding in six months - I live in Seattle but the wedding was in Milwaukee. I needed someone to help me find and contact vendors as well as make sure I stayed on task. Megan far exceeded my expectations. She was able to suggest several vendors in my budget and some even gave me a discount because I was working with her. While all decisions were my own, she would give me her opinion when asked. Her communication was awesome, she always responded to my emails in a very timely fashion. I would highly recommend Dare to Dream Weddings for anyone looking for a wedding planner.
