  • Katie and Marlee are amazing to work with! They did the flowers for our wedding and we could not have been happier. Katie said the flowers I wanted were out of season, but she made it work anyway, she added some flowers that were perfect! I highly recommend them to anyone who needs design, planning, decor, custom anything! They are so creative and accommodating. They made everything perfect!

  • DFW provided the flowers, lighting, and overall design for our wedding. Their work was beautiful! Marlee was professional and easy to work with. We appreciated her flexibility and willingness to make adjustments. DFW’s designs perfectly matched the theme and overall feel we were going for at our wedding. We recommend DFW without hesitation.

  • I can't even begin to describe how LUCKY I was to work with DFW event design. I would recommend them to ANYONE for the best, care free, wedding planning experience. I used DFW for both full planning and design and it was WORTH. EVERY. PENNY. A friend recommended Katie Robinson and her team and I submitted a inquiry and heard very quickly from Marlee. I worked with Marlee for many months with managing my budget, finding a venue, hiring all my vendors, and she literally took care of every single detail. DFW made it so easy -- they have impeccable style and taste, and produced the most amazing weekend for all our family and friends. Because we had the full planning, they were there from start to finish and my wedding day was an absolute dream. If anything went wrong, I don't know about it! After my wedding, all I could do was gush about how incredibly amazing they were. I had a friend who was having well, not the best luck with designers/decorators and her wedding was FAST approachin... Read more

  • The team at DFW Event Design was fantastic. We had a non traditional wedding with some pretty unique requests and Katie and Marlee accommodated every single one of them with a great attitude. It was apparent that they did A LOT of work behind the scenes and helped to shield us from the stress involved with planning a wedding. There are simply are too many things they did well to list them all, so we will simply say: if you are considering hiring a wedding planner, do it. And if you’re going to do it, hire Katie.

  • Perfection professional and very pleasant to work with. When my husband and I were stressing about all my he details of our wedding we decided it was time to hire a planner. DFW planning was the perfect fit at the right price. Katie and her staff were very detailed oriented, they knew what we needed and executed everything to our standards. We can not thank them enough. Use this company you will be extremely pleased.

  • Katie and her team nailed it! I had very little left in my budget and very little time left for our wedding and decided at the last minute to look into hanging decor for our dance floor. We chose to do a mix of hanging lanterns and tissue flowers. While on location getting ready I decided to sneak a peak at the space and was thrilled. And it looked absolutely stunning when the whole space was finished with our tables and flowers. It just finished the space off perfectly! So so happy with how it turned out. And, also incredibly happy with Katie and how easy it was to work with her. DFW is great. If you are on the fence about booking them, do it!

  • This vendor is everything they advertise and more! I would (and do) recommend DFW to anyone and everyone. I really loved how they had a variety of packages that they are willing to customize to fit your individual needs. I never planned on having a weeding planner but now, I cannot imagine how I would have done without. I LOVE DFW!

  • We used DFW Event Planning for our NYE wedding and they were nothing short of amazing. Through the whole process Katie & Nicole were so responsive and helpful. I would definitely recommend them to anyone getting married! I was worried at first about the additional cost of hiring a Wedding Planner, however the money spent was well worth it. Having them to consult with helped us to save more in vendor costs/rentals/decorations than we spent on the cost of planning. Also, I could not RAVE about Nicole the day of more. Nicole was the first to show up and the last two leave - she was absolutely AMAZING! As a perfectionist, I can 100% say Nicole was the reason I was able to just sit back, relax, and enjoy our day - she had it all under control. DFW is amazing - don't think twice - use them!!

  • The decision to hire DFW Event Design + Planning for decor, lighting, and draping was one of the best decisions we made. They are truly a one stop shop for everything decor! The venue looked beautiful. Katie and the team made our vision a reality, and we could not have asked for a better team : )

  • If we could give DFW more than 5 stars, we would. Nicole was recommended by our venue, and came through in a big way. From our first meeting, she was organized, easy to contact, and had great suggestions for wedding planning amateurs. She took over all vendor coordination, and helped us develop an awesome day-of timeline that kept everything running smoothly. I truly believe that Nicole and the DFW team allowed us to enjoy our wedding and stay in the moment- we were confident that things would run smoothly in their very capable hands.

  • We worked with Katie and Nicole and we are so thankful that we hired them! Initially, we did not anticipate hiring a wedding coordinator at all, but as our big day drew nearer, we started to worry about who would handle all of the details of our wedding on the big day. We brought on DFW one month prior to our wedding and it was one of the best decisions that we made throughout the wedding planning process. Both Katie and Nicole were a complete pleasure to work with and made sure that our wedding went smoothly and was a stress-free amazing experience. In particular, if you are getting married at the Franklin Institute, which was our venue, hiring DFW is a must. Katie is very experienced and really knows the staff and the logistics there, which was a huge help. DFW also helped with our lighting, as their sister company does beautiful event designs as well. Thank you Katie, Nicole and DFW for helping to make our wedding the best day ever!

  • Katie and Luke are, in my humble and happily-wedded opinion, magicians! Connecting with us from our very first meeting, we were instantly confident that we wanted to work with them to plan our special day. Over the span of 3 months, Katie and her team diligently, patiently and creatively helped us realize the vision for a simple, elegant and fun wedding and reception. They worked with our vision and greatly improved it for a very traditional Indian ceremony followed by a gorgeously personalized reception at the Ben Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to fabulous decor, lighting, sound, centerpieces, etc. and organizing logistics for transportation of our guests and belongings back and forth between the hotel and the venue, Katie went above and beyond in making sure we were happy, comfortable and enjoyed every minute of the process and day. From making sure the water bottles for the welcome boxes had perfectly centered custom labels attached to mailing in our marriage li... Read more

  • When I had my walk through with Katie, she made it seem that she understood exactly what we wanted. We provided several photos with exactly what we wanted and she said they could do it, not a problem. The weeks leading up to the wedding, I tried to contact Katie several times and she was completely unresponsive. She actually did not have an understanding of what we wanted and was unable to complete the given task that we had paid for. The look we wanted was absolutely ruined!!! I am disgusted by the work that was done and in return this company has decided to blame us and the venue for their lack of experience and inability to complete the job. I am very glad I only had this company do draping (lack of) because they obviously wouldn't have been able to handle anything else!! DON'T USE!! UNRELIABLE, WON'T COMMUNICATE AND COMBATIVE!!!!

    responded with the following comments.

    Let me start by saying thank you to all potential clients for reading this review. As we all know, there are two sides to every story so I hope that you will take the time to read ours. We were contracted to do draping for this client and we planned the setup for Thursday, 2 days before their Saturday wedding. When we arrived at the venue we draped the areas that had been discussed and were listed on the invoice, and Brett, the venue manager, told us that she had actually wanted something completely different. I called the bride to confirm this is what she wanted. She then told me that she wanted something completely different then what we discussed and what we were contracted for. (Our invoices list each service with a detailed description). We never want a bride to be stressed over us as a vendor, so we told her we would be back tomorrow with more product to execute what she was asking for. The difference in price was quite dramatic between the two, but in a short amount of time it was more important to make our client happy than to infer an extra cost. We arrived the following day, Friday, with the intention of having a discussion about the drape. The client was not on sight, and did not respond to any of the 4 phone calls that I made to her in the two hours that we were there. We decided to execute exactly what was discussed on the phone with hopes of satisfying her. It is unfortunate that this client was not able to respond to me on either Thursday or Friday when I had questions about what she was upset with, but instead she waited until a week after her wedding to write me e-mails saying that I did everything wrong, and that she wanted a refund. If you compare this review to the rest that have been left for us here I hope that you will come to the right conclusion. Unfortunately, you cannot please all of the people all of the time, as hard as we try to do that. Best- Katie
