About Your Dream Day: Our Mission Is To Bring Your Wedding Dreams to Life

Wedding planning is supposed to be fun. This philosophy is the primary driving force of the wedding planning style of Kathy Piech-Lukas, lead wedding planner and owner of Your Dream Day.

Weddings should be timeless, romantic celebrations that are inspired by our clients' personalities, interests and dreams. Our clients set the tone for the design of their wedding, the vendor team, and the look and feel of the big day.

Developing a relationship and partnership with our couples makes the planning seemless, the design reflective of our clients, and a key element to keeping our clients happy. Finally, there is a perfect wedding professional for every couple's budget. This approach to planning is what sets Your Dream Day apart from the rest of the wedding planners in Ohio. Our 'dream team' of wedding planners on the wedding day will be there to make sure everything runs smoothly so you can relax and enjoy the big day.

Our Lead Dreamgirl

Kathy Piech-Lukas, lead dreamgirl and owner of Your Dream Day, has planned more than 200 weddings throughout Southwest Ohio, including Dayton and Cincinnati, during the past fourteen years. She only refers the best that Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, have to offer as far as wedding professionals, venues and other elements for your wedding. With thousands of resources throughout Ohio and the US and more than 20 years of event planning experience, her personalized approach to wedding planning has earned her the Couple's Choice award from Wedding Wire, a spot in The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame, the Ohio WOW award for Best Wedding, an Esprit Award nomination for Best Wedding, and named to the Dayton 25 Women to Watch list.

First Date

The 'first date' appointment is a free one hour consultation for you and your fiancé to meet with us and to see if we are a good fit for you. This not only gives you a chance to see if our style is a good fit for you, but it gives us a chance to see what your expectations are for your wedding planner.

    Caring, Creative, and Competent

    Kathy is a great person and wedding planner. Our reception was "nontraditional" due to the pandemic and a surprise/unwelcome cancer diagnosis. The reception ended up being held on our two-year anniversary. Even though we had hired her prior to everything when we first got engaged, she was compassionate and understanding about our need to delay and be flexible. She helped us navigate that and always worked at 110% to bring our vision to life in its adapted form. Kathy listened to every part of our vision and requests (broadcast the derby?... "yes, let's do that!" Serve mint juleps?... "How fun!" Skip the traditional wedding cake?... "great idea. Let's save a ton of money by buying sheet cakes and serving it straight from the kitchen!" and so on.) She brought all of our visions to life, and our guests have told us that it was the best wedding that they have ever attended. We are so grateful!

    I highly recommend Kathy and Your Dream Day!!!

    Kathy was a great wedding planner! She knows the wedding scene in Cincinnati, where we got married, and once she got to know us, she knew the sorts of places that would be the best fit for our wedding. It's like having your friend help plan your wedding, if your friend has an in with everyone in the wedding industry. I highly recommend Kathy and Your Dream Day!!

    Kathy is a Rockstar!!!!

    Kathy was absolutely amazing! My fiance is from Ohio but we live in Las Vegas, so I had to plan our wedding from almost 2,000 miles away, sight unseen. And, given the fast approaching wedding date, I relied HEAVILY on Kathy's experience, judgment, and contacts. After only 2 telephone calls, she totally got my style and understood exactly what we wanted. She arranged tours, meetings, and tastings for all our vendors that we conducted during our only weekend visit. She even secured us some pretty great deals with our vendors. To say that Kathy is a superstar at her job is a true understatement. I will forever be indebted to her for helping make my dream a reality!
