To say that Francesca and the Dazzling Affairs team are amazing just is not enough! I met with Francesca 10 months before my wedding and we didn’t even pick a date yet, so we were at the very very beginning of planning. She walked thru everything with us, went over budget information, guest count, vendors and went over timeline of when we needed to book vendors...starting with venue and date.
She took care of every appointment from start to finish, if I had questions she did the heavy lifting and called vendors to confirm everything. She answered emails and calls quickly thru out the entire process and would chat with me when I was getting overwhelmed and would calm me down.
Every vendor she recommended to us was awesome to work with, everything she did took a huge weight off of the stress of planning an event in a short amount of time.
The day of her assistants and her showed up all smiles ready to go, prepared beyond belief for ANY issue that any of us had, they were all fun and truly became part of our family during planning. We are positive that the stress level would have been huge had we not had her and her team helling us along the way. I recommend Dazzlingn Affairs every chance I get and will keep doing just that!

Francesca and Erin were simply amazing! A month before the wedding, I met with Francesca and she spent about two hours with us, coming up with a timeline and trying to help us fill in any blanks that we had. She made sure to reach out and confirm with all the vendors and send them the timeline so that we could all be on the same page. On our wedding day, Erin and Francesca came to the hotel at around 8am. From the beginning, Francesca could see that I was super nervous about the weather and she made sure to tell me that everything was going to be great! They made sure that all my items were ready for when the photographer came and then Erin went to my husband’s room. Francesca was able to make sure that everyone stayed on time and she made sure that everything that needed to get to WBM made it there with Erin’s awesome help. I was especially nervous about getting my train on because it was detachable and she was able to do it in no time. Once we got to WBM, Erin did an amazing job making sure I got all the pictures I wanted which I had in a list. They also made sure to keep the families together because I wanted all my family shots out of the way. She worked with my husband and our best man to make sure that everyone received their tips and she worked with WBM to ensure that we left with everything we came with and more. Towards the end of the wedding, Francesca made sure that we got out to our car that was taking us to the hotel right before the rain came crashing down and we were able to get some awesome shots with it. They moved so quickly and with ease that even if there was an issue, I still have no idea. I also did my invitations with Francesca and they came out amazing! She was great at dealing with all my indecisiveness with the colors and fonts and wording and she really helped me buckle down and make some very good decisions. Everything looked wonderful!
One of the most professional weddings and event planners we have ever worked with. They are so well organized and on top of every last detail - a total pleasure to work with. Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
I have had the opportunity to work with Dazzling Affairs on numerous occasions. Every detail is on point and they are true pros in every sense of the word.
I have worked with many events with Dazzling Affairs, over the past several years, and Francesca stands head and shoulders over most, not only in demonstrated initiative, intelligence, and creativity but also in her ability to function as a productive member of a team. Her intellect is matched by her ability to communicate clearly and to project an open, friendly persona to others regardless of their, level of expertise.
