planning a wedding is a piece of cake

said no couple. ever.

Welcome to Dee Weddings!

We're a young and trendy boutique wedding planning company in New York and we specialize in all things wedding. We love what we do and after all these years, we believe there’s a method to a wedding’s madness!

We've planned weddings for 50 guests to 600, and for couples representing all kinds of faith and culture. 

We're an LGBTQ ally and strongly support marriage equality.

We believe that getting married is an emotional decision for a lot of us and people want to celebrate it in the best way possible. However, we're also aware of the challenges faced while planning a wedding, and so, this is why we make it our personal mission to make sure you do not regret hiring us. 

Be it exceptional decor, to making sure everything is going as planned, to making sure you, your families and your guests are all (drunk) having a great time—we've got you covered!

We can help you at any of the three stages of wedding planning—from start to end (full wedding planning), from midway (partial planning) and if you’ve already planned everything and only need help on the day-of (day-of coordination)

In other news, we offer great advice in our blog and on Instagram (@Dee_Weddings)—our #WeddingWednesday is especially cool!

Alright, let's do this!

Hi, I'm Deepti!

I come from an Event Planning background where I used to plan and manage events for high-end luxury retail brands, the government sector and for tech start-ups. I then found my niche in wedding planning. 

I believe in love and I love seeing people wanting to celebrate their love! And so, it is gratifying to know that you're willing to trust me and give me the responsibility of helping you plan the most important day of your life.

My purpose is to make your life easier. To make sure your day is as perfect as if it were mine, to keep you away from the stress of running around all over the place, finding the right vendors and the works. I want you to enjoy getting married, instead of waking up in the middle of the night worrying, 'what if the stage collapses,' or 'what if it rains.' This job then becomes mine. 

So tell me your story. Tell me what you envision for your wedding. Let's get talking!
