    Jana is hands down the best wedding planner in Wilmington!

    I highly recommend Jana and her team for any and all of your wedding planning needs! I hired her for partial planning for my wedding. I had planned a lot of it myself but knew I needed just a little more guidance. Jana is very quick to respond to any and all questions whether by text or email. She was very professional. My mom was against a planner in the beginning but greatly appreciated our decision. With my mom being about 2 hours away it was hard to be hands on. Jana helped me with all of my rentals and vendors. She knows the answer to every question (seriously)! Sounds crazy but she truly excels at what she does. We had no worries the day of, which is what my mom was wanting. We got to enjoy the day with no stress! She was so easy to work with and trust me I am NOT the easiest to work with being that I cannot make a decision and change my mind often!! Kudos to her and her team! They did a phenomenal job of making my wedding day an actual DREAM. Thank you, Design a Dream team!!

Every last detail was perfect and every beautiful moment went off as planned!! The bride and groom were able to place their full trust and confidence in Design A Dream and in turn, they enjoyed every last moment to the fullest. They laughed, they cried and oh man did they party but, not once did they worry.
