Dreams of the Perfect Day = The Perfect Day
I have known Dawn (Owner of Premier Wed) since we were kids. After Dawn opened Premier Wed it was always my dream to have her and her company plan and direct our daughter's wedding. In 2017, our daughter became engaged and I reached out to Dawn to hire her and her expert team. We live in the Dallas area. Premier Wed has two locations, Nashville, TN and Chicago, IL. Dawn assured us that logistics would not be a problem. We were excited to learn that her team would be available and would love to help us plan for this incredibly important and special day for our daughter. With almost 2 years of time to plan, vendors were contacted by the team at Premier Wed, appointments were set for us, and we went to the meetings together and signed contracts. Yes, Dawn flew out here several times to be here in person with us. AMAZING! Everything was set early, and when it came down to the last few weeks before the wedding, we had a dedicated staff on hand if we had any questions or concerns. The one thing that stood out the most to us is the level of planning, checking, double checking, and coordination of the vendors, is beyond anything we could have ever expected. There were lists with detailed timelines, not just for vendors, but for family as well. The level of professional care the day of the wedding, not to just the wedding party, but with the vendors, AND our guests, made the occasion something our friends and family are still talking about 9 months later. My husband and I are so proud that everyone had such a great time that the venue was still packed at the end of the night, and our daughter still says today that her wedding was PERFECT. At the end of the night, as mom and dad, were able to walk straight to our car and head home without having to worry about anything. Words cannot describe the true level of how thankful we are that we chose Dawn and her team. If you are debating about hiring a wedding planner, don't look any further, Premier Wed is the ONLY way to go. The service is definitely in the smallest of details, which they are PROS at!
As a side note, we attended two weddings right after our daughter's. While they were nicely done, there was a lot of chaos on the timelines, the brides were frustrated as people kept leaving early, and neither bride said they had the perfect day. Premier Wed can help as little or as much as you want, everything they do is custom tailored to fit what you need. You really won't find anyone better to turn your wedding dreams into a reality.Sent on 06/23/2020
Premier W.E.D.'s reply:My goodness! What a lovely surprise this Tuesday morning! We were so honored to be asked to help. It's true....regardless of WHERE the wedding is, we are set and ready to roll. Dallas was so fun to travel to and thank you for trusting us! That's key to it all. You were a pleasure and a joy my sweet friend. You believed in us and trusted us! Thank you for that.

My day was perfect because of PremierWed and their entire team!
My wedding was small, but the details were not. In the beginning stages of planning I thought I could plan and execute everything myself....this couldn't have been further from the truth! My anxiety got so out of control that I HAD to find a planner. When I met with Dawn I immediately knew I found the perfect fit for me, and what I expected for my event.Sent on 01/15/2020
Dawn has the ability to take your vision and truly make it reality. From makeup to menus, florals to linens, and everything in between...she nailed it! My guests had the time of their lives, and I didn't worry about a single thing except enjoying my day. I've never handed over complete control of anything in my life, but I would do it again in a heartbeat if PremierWed was leading the charge!
Thank you Dawn, all of your staff, and perfect vendors for my perfect day! I will never forget how special you made the most special day of my life thus far!

Our dreams came true
We came to Dawn and her team with a vision & a dream. They worked with us to plan & execute the most perfect day. Helped us try and stay within our budget and create a day around our family & friends who were traveling from near and mostly afar!! We were faced with some last minute weather issues that caused some unexpected stress and changes and upgrades but they remained cool & calm while trying to keep us cool and confident it would all work out!! And it did indeed. The tight timeline we were given kept us on a great schedule where nothing was a surprise or unexpected. We were able to relax a bit on the wedding morning knowing every minute was accounted for and planned. There was never a moment of panic or doubt.
We were given great direction at the wedding venue for pictures prior to the wedding and on to the ceremony and beyond. Our wedding director even popped a sewing kit out of her pocket when my daughter’s bustle on her dress was torn when someone stepped on it. At the end of the night when we arrived home and emptied our car, the team had neatly placed flowers, wedding cake, napkins, vows, coats etc in our car. Nothing left to surprise or want or need.
We have kept in touch a few weeks after still asking questions about where to get our gowns cleaned etc.
A wedding dream day come true. So very happy!!! Couldn’t have pulled it off without this amazing and experienced team!!!Sent on 10/27/2019
