Donnie Brown and his team made my dreams come true. Although my wedding was over a year ago I still have people thanking me for inviting them to such an amazing wedding. I look at my pictures and am so grateful I chose Donnie Brown to plan and design my wedding. I highly recommend.

Donnie Brown Weddings helped us achieve our dream wedding. Donnie helped create the theme and decor which was glamorous, beautiful and tastefully done. I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you DBW for everything!

Donnie Brown and his amazing team put together a fabulous wedding for us this past March. While it was a small wedding, he put so much design effort into it that we were amazed when we opened the doors to the reception area. Our family and friends are still calling and commenting on the spectacular wedding event. Most importantly, we were actually able to enjoy our wedding. This would not have ever been possible without a team of people thinking of all those crazy little details and managing them with such professionalism, skill, and expertise. They thought of us, even when we didn't know to think of ourselves.
My husband says that choosing Donnie was the not really a choice for me.. but a choice to keep him (the groom) sane through the process. For me, I say how fabulous it is to be surrounded by all the people you love on your wedding day and to be able to enjoy the event without stress because I have every confidence in the world that Donnie and his team has it 100% covered. Those things are priceless on one of the most important days of your life.
They've become very special people to us.

You want the absolute best team in the entire world? Choose Donnie Brown Weddings and Events. Donnie and Heather produced my fairytale wedding. Being an interior designer, I had a very specific vision for my wedding that was unique to me. Donnie saw my vision, and brought it to life with all of his artistic ideas. Not only was everything gorgeous, all of the vendors that Donnie put me in touch with were the absolute best. Donnie's idea of the chocolate menu cards with the antique brooches on the box were an absolute hit at our wedding. If you want a perfect, stress-free wedding, go with Donnie Brown. His knowledge and experience in the wedding industry of over 30 years just proves that he is the #1 wedding planner in Dallas.

We enjoyed our year of planning our daughter's wedding with Donnie and his whole group. They helps us navigate all the set backs in plans that happen along the way and made sure we had the venue, the flowers, and the reception that our daughter dreamed of for her wedding ceremony and reception. Donnie is an artist in his field who collects around himself others of the same caliber. We will always cherish the memories of our daughter's wedding and remember Donnie Brown and company with great fondnes. If you want your event to not only be an extravaganza but reflect yourself as well as be touching and beautiful, I recommend you to avail yourself of Donnie Brown's services.

Donnie and his team were fabulous!! Donnie's advice to me during the planning process could not have been more precise. He truly looked out for me when I didn't know any better and he made sure our wedding day went off without one single flaw, and he did a super job because it was perfect! Donnie's team was there until the very end of the recpetion to make sure every detail was taken care of, it was so nice to finally not have to even think about anything. I highly recommend Donnie Brown for a wedding/event planner, his experience, creativity, professionalism and classic taste make for an extraordinary event and a very happy couple! (Oh, did I mention he can sew you in your dress, on the spot, if needed? Yup!)

When I got engaged I really wanted to plan my "own" wedding! I was so excited and thought I could do everything myself. It wasn't to long before I realized that there are many more details to address than what I thought. It quickly became overwhelming. My future mother-in-law suggested that I hire a planner. I am delighted she gave me this advice!
Shelley Binion at Donnie Brown Weddings and Events is one of the most creative individuals I've ever met and has unique ideas, energy, and likeable personality make her a top choice as a wedding planner. She listened to what you wanted for my wedding day, she then turned my ideas into an event that a Bride can only wish for. You will find exceptional service & professionalism.
I will certainly recommend Donnie Brown Weddings and Events to anyone searching for a planner!

Donnie Brown Weddings and Events was the Wedding Planner for my wedding in August of 2011.
I currently live in Kansas but I had my wedding in Dallas where I am from. They helped me plan my entire wedding while I was out of state and lined up vendors for me to interview when I came to my one week to plan. They were willing to spend the entire week with me while I was in town!
I had to rely on Donnie and his team for advice to get me through all the planning and believe me, my wedding was fabulous. We are still told that it's the most elegant wedding people have ever attended.
They have the best vendor connections and they treat you like royalty. Who can see through what is being cost effective. As well, he can maneuver his way through vendor issues.
No request or problem was ever too big for Donnie or his team. I think that was the most comforting factor during such a stressful and exciting time. There were a couple of times the day before where I felt like I was going to really stress but it was Donnie to the rescue!
He truly is one of those people that you're lucky if you ever get to meet. I can't say enough about Donnie or his team. But, I would like to give them a big Thank YOU!!

Donnie Brown is amazing!!! He and his team went above and beyond! If you are considering a planner I would say to definately hire them! My mom actually was able to enjoy my wedding day instead of worrying about my wedding. Just because she knew Donnie was in charge and every detail had been addressed! He was there to meet my other vendors to make surre they too were on schedule. Do not attempt to plan your wedding without them!

Donnie Brown and staff were more ahead of things when needed, always had us ahead of schedule - which lead to the most beautiful wedding in 2011!

My husband and I loved working with Donnie and especially with Heather. As two busy professionals, we didn’t have much time to plan, and they took care of everything. Our wedding was perfect thanks to them!

hired their service over a year before my wedding date, gave them a specific vision and a strict budget, was told it would not be a problem, that everything could be done and well within my budget. Let’s just say, 5 weeks before my wedding handed, they handed me a bill for almost 3 times my budget, but had been asking for my budget for my food and Decor for 5 plus months prior to this, my mom finally had to call the club and get pricing since Donnie, and his team would not. Nightmare from beginning to end, chose a venue in September based on .......we were told the grounds was going to be leveled so we could have the outdoor wedding we wanted. Wedding planners went MIA over November through Jan, then we finally did have our meeting in mid FEB, 2 and half months before me wedding date, was told at this meeting, that the flowers designer had quit ( the most important thing to me and was stated from beginning) and that the club , which was suppose to start construction in October and be finished in Jan, was not going to level the ground and never started construction. Donnie came to this meeting with no other solutions to the problem, and I was told that it is what it is......mind you, still no budget given to us even though we had already met with the club on all wedding details in October.
It continues.....wanted cake balls in the shape of a wedding cake, like a tower of cake balls. Donnie’s team recommended a cake vendor, I asked Donnie’s team before my appt, if they were sure this vendor did the cake ball tower I wanted, was told yes, they do everything. Well....Got to the cake tasting and guess what, he didn’t do cake ball cakes, and the vendor actually ended up helping us, he called around to find a vendor that met my needs. Never got to do a cake tasting because of this mix up.
I have numerous unanswered emails that had to be followed up by texts or phone calls. I had to ask a million questions as the monthly itinerary that was given to me, was not be followed by Donnie’s team. The communication was minimal and the information was false. Donnie and his team are not professional and brides, you will work harder than if you didn’t hire a wedding planner. I don’t usually write reviews but Donnie and his team were so awful and almost destroyed my wedding, I don’t wish this experience for any bride and groom......it is really hard to describe the numerous let downs Donnie and his team made my family and I go through. I was not a bridezilla, just had a vision and a budget and was told everything could happen, not one of those this did happen.....the tears, the worry, the stress, and the heartbreak were too much....and the fact that they handed me a bill that was going to be almost 3 times by budget was to much to bear. Please beware, truly a nightmare.
