We’re so happy you’re here!

You’ve heard of the expression two heads are better than one right?  Well, how about 11?  You’ve never seen industry connection and passion like this!  We are an experienced group of wedding and event planners devoted to producing beautiful celebrations that are equally fun to plan as they are to experience.

We love the idea that a couple’s wedding should be “ridiculously amazing” in its own way!  What makes a wedding ridiculously amazing will mean different things to different people.  Our goal is to help you maximize your vision and priorities and host a wedding that is a perfect representation of the two of you and the things you love!  With high expectations balanced by a desire to keep things authentic, impressive, and inviting, you will be so proud of what we create together.

DreamGroup is made up of a team of planners known for our attentive planning style, superior vendor connections, and for creating successful wedding and event experiences that exceed expectations.

As one of Vancouver’s most trusted and established wedding planning companies we have an unparalleled industry presence.  Our passion, creativity, vendor relationships, and long-standing reputation for excellence will be just a few of the things you come to love about us.

Although you will be working with one of us exclusively throughout the planning, you will always have the benefit of a team of knowledgeable, enthusiastic, well-connected people behind you!

We are all capable of planning any wedding that comes our way, however, the planning experience will be that much more fun and wonderful by collaborating with a planner whose style and personality you connect with most.

Take a little time to get to know us below or simply give us a call or drop us a note and we will take it from there.  Or if you prefer some guidance, please complete our Inquiry Form here.
