dee weddings, a wedding planning company
... Getting married is a big deal for a lot of us!
We want our wedding day to be perfect, our guests to have a great time, and most importantly, we want to enjoy our own wedding.
But planning a wedding, no matter how big or small, can get overwhelming. If you’ve ever planned an event before—a birthday, get-together, a surprise—you probably already know what it takes to get things done. And get things done right.
With the amount of details that go into a wedding and the number of choices to choose from, there's a tendency to feel stressed and confused.
This is where a professional and knowledgeable wedding planner comes useful—someone who can keep it simple, work in your best interest, ask the right questions and help you make the right decisions.
It’s a common notion that there's no need for a wedding planner when you can delegate it to family and friends. Unfortunately, the job of a planner is an intangible service, unlike a photographer or a florist or a designer, where you can touch, see and admire their final product.
So it's hard to 'see' value in hiring one. To which I'll say, think of your wedding as a 7,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, which needs to be assembled in a short span of time—Your planner will be that person who will help you in putting it all together. And If you feel this will add value to you, then you may want to reconsider and look into hiring one.
hi! i'm deepti—founder & lead planner
... I’m a New York based wedding planner and I plan weddings for couples from diverse cultures, and across New York, Dubai and Mumbai. I've been doing this since 2011—and absolutely love it.
It's extremely rewarding to see couples enjoy their own wedding and get compliments from family and friends—and the fact that I've had a pivotal role to play, keeps me going. I'm also an LGBTQ ally and I strongly support marriage equality.
My story is a little typical. It started with a random "hey deeps, you're good at this, consider taking it up professionally." So from not knowing what a table runner is or what table centerpieces are—to planning events for luxury brands and royal families of Dubai—to now over six years of international experience in weddings, it has been an incredible journey.
Over these years, I've handled over 80 weddings ranging from intimate settings of 20 guests to five-days, back-to-back celebrations of 500. After all these years, I believe there’s a method to a wedding’s madness!
I assist couples at three stages of planning. Some from beginning till end (full wedding planning,) some midway (partial planning) and some who've planned everything and only need help on the day-of (day-of coordination.) I understand every couple has different set of requirements, and I stay as flexible as I can to accommodate you.
When asked to review, my clients say the two things that stand out the most for them is my exuberance and the innate knack for organizing events.
I also understand that with hectic jobs and other commitments, planning can get stressful and sometimes get the better of couples—which is why they appreciate that I am able to 1) avoid run-of-the-mill ideas and help suggest different ways to reflect their vision and taste, 2) recommend and get on board talented, trusted and like-minded vendors from the wedding community and 3) stay positive at all times. After all, vibes rub off on others and the world could do with more happiness!
