I used Sonia’s ‘Days of Coordination’ services for my Mehndi and Reception wedding events, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the moment we met, she was professional, friendly and approachable.
Our ongoing interaction began 2 months before the events and consisted of the following: -Vendors Contracts: The complexity of our multi-day wedding did not faze Sonia. As I received signed contracts, I would send them to her. She was always on top of familiarizing herself with all details per contract. -Outstanding Lists: Sonia put together lists of items that her and I both needed to take care of, keeping both of us organized in the 2 months leading up to the events. -Venue Meetings: Sonia attended both of our venue meetings in order to understand all details. -2 in person meetings: Sonia took us through an extensive questionnaire where our answers helped gather information of the flow and itinerary per day. A draft itinerary was then put together, which was finalized as details got sorted out from follow-ups I had on my end. -Vendor Communication: Prior to each event, Sonia reached out to all vendors directly to confirm timings for set-up and contact info.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Sonia was my sounding board. She was there to listen/respond to any idea/question that popped into my head, no matter the time of day. She was consistently attentive, responsive and most importantly, always had a positive attitude.
Both events were flawlessly executed. Sonia and her assistance played an integral role in making this happen. They were at the venues bright and early, managing all vendors and making sure everything was taken care of as stipulated in the contracts. This took the burden off of our families, resulting in everyone being able to fully enjoy the wedding events and not worrying about any last minute issues.
I would highly recommend Sonia to anyone looking for Days of Coordination!

Planner extraordinaire! The team at Dashing Dulhan planned our corporate event with class and talent. Walking us through the stages of conception through to fruition. Our gala event went off without a hitch. Choice vendors and service suggestions by Dashing was top notch. The team of vendors worked together flawlessly. Dashing ensured all vendors were prompt and handled any and all issues that arose. Keeping all details buttoned down and keeping to our timeline, we couldn’t of been happier. Many thanks!

Where do I begin???……. I had absolutely NO plans to hire a wedding coordinator. What was I thinking?? From the very first phone call with Sonia, she had me hooked!! We could not have pulled off the most beautiful and amazing wedding without Dashing Dulhan. The BEST money my husband and I spent on our wedding was on hiring Sonia as our wedding coordinator. At our first meeting with Sonia, we knew we had to hire her. It was essential that we hired someone to help us coordinate our big day, since it involved various wedding rituals from two different faiths and cultures. Sonia’s understanding of both faiths and cultures was evident on both, the wedding day and reception night. Dashing Dulhan was so personal and so genuine but always maintained that professional balance. They asked questions about us and wanted to get a good feel for what we were looking for. I loved their energy and how passionate they were about our wedding. I cannot stress enough how much better off we were in the long run because we hired Sonia and her team for coordination of our wedding weekend. My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sonia. She was efficient, organized, helpful, kind, detail-oriented, has impeccable taste, and she was not phased but the incessant questions we asked! Sonia handled the details and helped keep everything on track. On the wedding day, for both Sikh wedding ceremony at a Gurudawar, and Hindu wedding ceremony at a banquet hall (which was in two different cities), when we arrived, everything was organized according to our vision. Sonia and her team handled all the last minute details with love and care. My husband and I were able to let go of the wedding-related stress and enjoy our weekend with our family and friends. Everyone commented on how seamless the ceremony and reception was and how everything just flowed. Well, that was all thanks to Dashing Dulhan staff. On our reception day, Sonia and her team made sure that everything ran smoothly. I do not know how she dealt with all the vendors to make sure everything was done on timely manner. Sonia went beyond by helping me with my makeup disaster (Thank you for looking after me!!). It was such a joy working with Sonia. She truly cares about her brides and makes you feel like you are planning your wedding with your best friend. Dashing Dulhan leaves no detail overlooked and are so wonderful to work with. They worked with my husband and I to achieve our vision and helped us stay clam and collected. Dashing Dulhan made our vision of big fat Indian wedding come true!!! If you are looking to get married anywhere in GTA, give Dashing Dulhan a call. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!

Words cannot explain how blessed we were to have Sonia by our side! We hired her from the very beginning, and I can honestly say it was the best decision throughout our entire wedding. She was extremely helpful, very educated, and knew exactly what we were looking for. Best of all, her cheerful and positive attitude always helped keep us calm! Sonia made the process easy, fun and stress-free so that we could really enjoy our wedding. Thanks for all of your hardwork!

“Everybody needs a Sonia in their lives” was the resounding feedback from myself, my (now) husband, and both of our families after our May wedding. Dashing Dulhan was the best money we spent, taking away so much of the headache of planning and stressing over the logistics of our big day(s). Our Pakistani wedding spanned over 2 days and Sonia was completely reliable, professional, and exercised sound judgment at both events, taking away any and all stress over making sure everything went according to plan. Prior to beginning the planning of my wedding I didn’t think I would need a wedding planner having a fair amount of event planning experience under my belt. When it comes to weddings, I couldn’t have been more wrong, and I am so glad we engaged Dashing Dulhan. At a wedding typically the people you can trust to ensure things go according to plan are already involved in the wedding in some way or another (MOH, Mother of the bride / groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen etc), and not only will all of these people have plenty to do on the day of (not to mention getting themselves ready as well as being part of the pre-wedding photos!), but these are the people that you want truly present at your wedding, enjoying themselves as much as the rest of your guests. Sonia was amazing at dealing with any hiccups behind the scenes and making sure everything went smoothly and we couldn’t be happier with how our wedding went. I really cannot recommend her or the Dashing Dulhan team enough. They made all the difference in making sure we had a stress-free and fun wedding!!

When you’ve anticipated and imagined your big day for a very long time, you deserve to enjoy it to the fullest!!! The day of our wedding, my husband and I did not have to worry about anything. Sonia took care of every minor detail which we discussed prior to the wedding as well as handled any last minute changes. Sonia is super sweet and very quick to pick up on exactly what you’re trying to say when you make the last sense! If you’re talking to Sonia and debating whether or not she is the coordinator for you, do yourself a favor and book her before someone else steals her on your date. My husband and I both agree that what we spent with Sonia was hands down the best money we spent on our wedding!

Hiring Sonia to be our wedding coordinator was the best decision ever! She was god sent. She took care of so many last minute details for us..she went above and beyond and kept everyone accountable (including us) to timelines! Planning a wedding can be very stressful but having Sonia with us made it so much easier. The best pet is that you An tell that she genuinely cares about making your day the most special one in your life! I would highly recommend her to every bride who wants her wedding day to be a true fairytale:)

DASHING DULHAN = BEST DECISION EVER!
We hired Sonia & her team for the full wedding planning package. Right from the beginning, about a year and a bit before our big day, Sonia took care of everything. She sat down with us to ask us what was important to us and what we envisioned for our big day so that she could have an idea of our dream wedding. She set up all of our meetings, came to as many as she could, and answered all of our countless messages and emails so quickly! Her professionalism and knowledge of the industry always put us at ease and made it easy for us to make decisions on such big items for our wedding. I didn’t fully understand the extent of the wedding planning package until I reflected on how much I relied on Sonia for literally everything!! Anytime I had a question, thought or concern, I felt completely comfortable asking her about it and she was very prompt, honest and knowledgeable with her answers. Throughout the planning process, I, as well as my family and friends, were in awe of how at-ease I was and I truly attribute that to Sonia. She always kept us on track, reminding us of the things we needed to get done according to our timelines. She was always one step ahead and had even dealt with multiple things throughout the process before I even mentioned them to her! She handled all of our contracts with vendors and kept in touch with our vendors consistently. There will never be enough words to show her my appreciation. Not only was it her organization, but also her thoughtful advice and relationships with vendors that allowed us to have everything we ever wanted for our big day. My husband and I joke that we had TOO much fun at our wedding and reception, and that is largely due to Sonia. She really let us enjoy our day and not worry about a thing.
Our wedding and reception was a two-day event and Sonia and her team handled it perfectly. We didn’t need to worry about anything, and any questions or concerns we had were taken care of by her and her team. She handled all of the final payments and communications with the vendors so that it was not on our plates. There were a few hiccups throughout the days (as usual) but Sonia and her team we able to problem-solve and make sure everything went smoothly. For instance, during the wedding we were actually running ahead of schedule (surprising, I know!) and thus everything in the itinerary, including lunch, needed to be bumped up in timing. Sonia and her team were able to get everything sorted and unless you knew the itinerary timing, you wouldn’t have ever noticed the difference! Also, one big thing we really wanted was to be able to eat at our own wedding, and she made it happen for us. She set up a table with our plates already made and ready, and really allowed us to enjoy our first meal together. Just tell Sonia what you want and she will make it happen, believe me!!! I only wish I could hire Sonia as a life planner! She is amazing at what she does and her passion for it really comes through. If you are debating on hiring a wedding planner or even who to hire, Dashing Dulhan hands down!
