Monogram Mondays Tiffany Cook style

A view of one of Tiffany Nieves now Tiffany Cook of WE TV's Platinum Wedding episode of Lynda & Alex wedding Planning & Design by Celebrity Wedding Planner Tiffany Cook

Last week our post focused on dance floors.  Well, we know some of our party animal brides don’t get to appreciate their dancer monograms as much since they are getting down with their guests on the dance floor.  What is a girl to do?

Put it on the wall of course!  Now your special design can be viewed all night no matter where everyone is sitting.  Not only that, but it as even more customization to your venue by getting “custom wall” that coordinates perfectly with your vision of the room.

Now you know at dream design we like to customize everything about your night- even if that includes a first touch of personalization when your guests arrive at the hotel.  After all, sometimes bigger better!

By this point, some brides might have trouble deciding between the monograms for the dance floor or the wall.  Fear not ladies, follow the lead of Mrs. Marty Booker who (above) opted for both!

 Happy Planning! -Elissa

Wedding tips, planning a "Platinum Wedding" for less from Tiffany Cook on NBC Live Miami

I had the pleasure of doing a live wedding segment on NBC Miami today which was a blast! 

I was thrilled to be able to cover the topic of how to plan the "platinum style" wedding for less. After 6 seasons with WE TV's hit show "Platinum Weddings" it seems many brides think they can only have the Platinum or celebrity wedding look if they have a Platinum budget. I was pleased to be able "show and tell" that this is not the case. Have no fear ladies, you can have your very own Platinum style Wedding on a less then platinum budget. Check out the video below to find out how.

Monogram Mondays!

This week’s Monogram Monday focuses on an often overlooked part of the wedding reception-
the dance floor!

This area is a simple space to personalize and can really add that WOW factor to your special day. We use a variety of techniques to achieve this element with the end result not only encompassing ambiance of your wedding, but you and your new spouse as well.

Using our signature seamless dance floors, we have been adding a new touch to this customized area. Fonts, colors and design elements can all be altered to make something that is “Dream Designed” especially for you!

Happy Planning! -Elissa

Saturday Sweetheart Table Inspiration by Tiffany Nieves-Cook

Why a wedding "Sweetheart Table" you ask? 

This is a great option for the bride & groom and has become increasingly popular over the past decade. The Sweetheart Table, a smaller table for two, allows the bride and groom to enjoy some time together during the reception. This option also allows the bridal party to sit with their significant others rather than at the traditional "head table". At Dream Design Weddings when using a Sweet Heart Table, Tiffany always sets the room with family and VIP tables in closest proximity to the bride & groom's Sweetheart table.

We wanted to share a few of our newest and favorite Sweetheart tables custom created by our amazing Dream Design team!  Tiffany often dreams up the impossible, but our decor engineers always deliver!

The above table was made for
Tiffany's first "Platinum Weddings" episode on WE TV .
A little "
Tiffany trivia" this was actually the first Platinum Wedding episode every filmed, the Wedding of Vanessa & Jose

Bring on the "Bling"
The table (above & below) was custom made for the wedding of our very own Platinum Weddings Planner Tiffany Nieves to John Cook in April of this year at the Fontainebleau. This spectacular Dream Design was inspired from a Swarovski Crystal staircase Tiffany fell in love with in Paris where the couple got engaged

After the reveal of of Tiffany's bling sweetheart table several Dream Design brides fell in love with it. At Dream Design we know every bride wants to be different so we created a few versions of this spectacular sweet heart table.

Introducing Monogram Mondays!

A new reason to make Mondays your favorite day of the week-Monogram Mondays! Each Monday we will be showing a different way to use Monograms within a wedding. This unique logo can be uniquely customized to match your day and is the first unified representation of you and your new hubby. Besides your average thank you card, Dream Design uses monograms in various elements throughout the wedding that we will be showing every Monday. We hope you will enjoy this new feature as much as we will!

Here's our first Monogram Monday:
This is actually the same monogram used in the menu from the first picture. I bet that is the first time you have seen a monogram for a sweetheart table this way! By eliminating the flourish design, the continuity of this monogram was able to flow flawlessly throughout the entire wedding without looking too matchy-matchy. Dream Design Weddings will custom design all parts of your dream day!

Happy Planning! -Elissa
