I think Jessica can agree that I’m the laziest bride she ever deals with. Thus the late review, hey better late than never. I hired Jessica in 2010 for wedding 2011 for 200 people, even from beginning I knew that I was in a good hand. She made ...
sure that I met all the deadlines, and when the wedding day was on, she was like the big sister that watching over me, making sure everything went smoothly. I didn’t even know that my roasted pig almost didn’t make it to my wedding haha.. Thank you Jessica for making my life stress free on my wedding day, money well spent on my part. Congrats on your wedding as well! Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart.

to make sure everyone knew our wedding timeline, and was always available for questions (and boy did we have a lot of them). On the day of, she brought all our wedding decor to the site and also packed it all up that night so we could retrieve it the next day. My husband and I felt free to just enjoy our wedding day because we knew that Cierra was keeping an eye on schedule and vendors and we had complete trust in her to make the whole day go off without a hitch. We couldn't have asked for a better leader for our vendor team and highly recommend her to anyone looking for coordinator help for their upcoming wedding or event.

ght of all the little things that I didn't even consider or plan for. She was always so responsive and really wanted us to have the wedding we wanted.
She was so sweet and understanding, especially since we didn't want a traditional wedding. When I told her our ideas, she would always check her sources to provide input on what would make things easier or work within our schedule and budget. She was never pushy and always was very supportive and accommodating.
I never felt ignored and she was truly a pleasure to work with. Even our other vendors complimented her work and how she stayed on top of everything for us. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding as she handled any issues right away without bothering us about it. However, she made sure to check in with us and keep us updated throughout the night on where we stood and if we had any questions or concerns.
We definitely recommend her and are truly thankful to have worked with her. You won't regret picking/hiring her for your planning needs, big or small!

Our venue required a day of coordinator, which I thought I wouldn't need. My mom found Alex and we were both so glad she did. He was so much more than that. He helped work with vendors, coordinate everything in the weeks before the wedding, ...
helped me find some last minute items I was missing. I was able to spend the day of the wedding getting my hair and makeup done and relaxing while he handled all of the small and large details at the venue. He handled everything; and with such professionalism and grace. Everyone who dealt with him gave rave reviews from vendors to guests. Plus, I would want him to be my best friend if I lived closer. He is truly fantastic.
Hire him for your event- you will not regret it.

I'm not surprised to see Dreams on a Dime and Jessica have a full five star line up for their Yelp reviews. Now I'm happy to add my own five star review!
From helping us snag the perfect venue to packing up the presents after the reception,...
Jessica was a godsend. I don't know what I would have done without her and cannot recommend her enough. We signed up for the mid-level coordination package which includes day-of coordination and help before the wedding, and that was a perfect fit for us and very reasonably priced. Jessica helped us find vendors, confirm contracts, and work out logistics. She spent a lot of time on the phone and on email with us making sure we felt ready for the day, and it was so nice to wake up Saturday morning feeling like everything was in a great place.
The day of coordination was more than exceptional. Jessica had a lovely assistant with her. Together they ensured that months of careful planning were realized without a hitch -- at least that I know about! That's the brilliant thing about Jessica. If anything went wrong, I had no hint of it -- thanks to her, was perfectly insulated from the set-up and the coordination so I could focus on getting ready. And everything was flawless -- not just to me, but to everyone who came up and told me what a great wedding it was.
I know from working events in my professional life that there is no way that everything went that smoothly behind the scenes (there's always something wrong, like not enough clean glasses or too many folks want the fish for their main dish -- it can't be helped). But thanks to Jessica, I never had to hear about it and from my perspective it was the smoothest, nicest, most wonderful and relaxing experience I could have dreamed of.
I really can't thank Jessica enough for making my wedding better than I could have ever dreamed. I hope this review comes close to showing her how much I appreciate her help, her advice, and her as a person! Future brides, don't dawdle! Hire her now!!

We decided half way through out wedding planning that we would need a "Day-Of" Coordinator so that our family wouldn't have to work and could relax and enjoy our day. We were so very fortunate to find Cierra with Dreams On A Dime. She was abs...
olutely fabulous! Their rates are very reasonable, she met with me and completely understood my vision. She was very responsive up until our wedding, completed my timeline which was overwhelming for me and contacted all of my vendors prior to the wedding with their arrival and set up times. I was able to rent the apothecary jars and she set up my candy buffet, favors, and aisle runner for me. Truly spectacular and the most important thing you can do for yourself. Trust me, she was worth every penny! All of our guests had a fabulous, relaxing time and some of our older relatives said it was the best wedding they have ever attended.

In beginning to plan our wedding, it became clear to me that a Day of Coordinator was absolutely necessary. My initial thought was "no way" but I soon realized that my friends were right and that I needed to find someone.

a Dime. I worked with Cierra to finalize a day of timeline, collect contracts, contact information, etc. Without her expertise, I'm sure the wedding would not have been as smooth. From the moment the day began, it was smooth sailing - I have to attribute so much of that to Cierra's hard work. Nothing went wrong and everything went right... Cierra was the perfect addition to make sure that our wedding day went off without a hitch and was at the right price. For those of you brides wanting that little bit of extra help, I encourage you to call Cierra - her fee is well worth your sanity on your wedding day!

edding I have been to has run about 10-30 minutes behind schedule. We ran about 20 minutes AHEAD of schedule all night! She was so easy to work with during the last month or so leading up to the wedding. She asked me questions about things that I hadn't even thought about, and offered great suggestions.
On the day, she took charge of everything that I would normally be in charge of on site at our events (my company catered) and made sure that I just relaxed, had everything I needed and enjoyed the day. Most importantly, she made sure that I ate something! And I envy her emergency kit! Anything you could ever imagine needing, she had it and then some. 5 stars isn't enough for Jessica and her team!! If you are looking for affordable, professional and superior coordination for either day-of or full service, look no further!!

She really helped out with the wedding time line, which you may think is really easy, but I found out it can be very frustrating. She took it out of my hands and gave me a completed time lime that made sense! This is an example of how she can take your stress away.
The day of my wedding, I had no idea of what was going with setup, breakdown, anything in between b/c Jessica and her assistant took care of everything. All I did was enjoy my day and for that I thank Jessica!
