They say that the mark of a good wedding planner is that you don't realize they are there, and realize at the end of the night how smooth everything went. If there were any hiccups in the day, I never learned about them, which is exactly what I needed! She was very sweet and easy to work with all along, and made me feel much more calm and prepared for the big day. I definitely recommend Megan if you are looking for a planner!

The price of a coordinator is worth every penny. We enjoyed our wedding and never looked back with wonder or worry. That is a testament of a great planner!

Dare to Dream made sure everything went smoothly on my wedding day! Megan made sure everything was taken care of! I had nothing to do but just enjoy my wedding! ~ Katy C., Washington D.C., Bride
I would recommend Megan Potter as a wedding planner as she does great follow up and stays on top of multiple tasks that we give her. Even though we know she is also servicing other clients she always makes us feel like we are her only client and her most important client. Our wedding also is a little harder because she is dealing with people that live in different cities and she keeps great communication through email or phone calls with all of us. She is always pleasant and you can tell that she really likes her job. We have met her in person and she is everything in person that she conveys over email. I would most definitely recommend her as an event planner. ~ Margo, Milwaukee, Mother of the Bride
I just thought I'd say that Megan has been a tremendous help during our wedding planning process as I have no idea how I would be getting all of these appointments arranged or in fact where to start with the wedding process in general. She has been very thorough and attentive to all my requests and has provided me with exceptional information regarding helpful tips, timelines, scheduling and people/companies she works with in order to get us the best photography, cakes, venues and "look" for my taste and budget. She is wonderful! (get her while you can!) ~ Erin, Pleasant Prairie, Bride
When Rick and I got engaged, we knew we would not have the time or the resources to plan the wedding we envisioned. We called around to various wedding planners, and reached Megan from Dare to Dream Weddings. I knew from the start of our conversation that this is what we were looking for. Our biggest issue was time…Rick travels for work, and I teach full time and coach. After explaining to Megan our needs, she wrote up a proposal based on the services we felt we could use. She has gone above and beyond our expectations in helping us out! I often feel bad for her having to wait for us to complete our tasks. Without Megan, we would not be where we are, connected with the vendors we wanted, or as relaxed in regards to our upcoming wedding day! ~ Kari & Rick, Milwaukee, Bride & Groom
Shortly after being engaged I started feeling very overwhelmed with all the planning that needed to start happening until I met with Megan who reassured me we have plenty of time and she'll help keep me focused and organized. Everything so far about Megan's planning has made the whole experience so much fun and it has taken all the stress out of the planning that I frequently hear brides complain about! I've truly enjoyed the planning experience so far and never once felt overwhelmed or unprepared for anything, Megan has done a great job of listening to what I really want for my wedding and is able to break down everything so it is manageable for me to truly make decisions that I'm thrilled with. Weddings are so much work and why not have someone help you so you can really enjoy what can be the start of a wonderful life together!

Molly & Travis
Molly, a born a raised Wisconsin girl, moved out to L.A. a few years ago and met Travis. Together they settled in Chicago but knew that they wanted to celebrate their day in Molly’s hometown. The couple, nicknamed Trolley, by their family and friends, wanted a rustic but elegant affair - softening Rail Hall’s wood and cream city brick with cream colored linens and floral. The addition of Majic Productions’s beautiful chandelier was the icing on the cake, bringing a soft glow to the entire space. Making sure their guests had a memorable evening, and enough energy to dance through the night, the couple brought in Hattie’s Food Truck for their late night snack - a definite crowd pleaser!

Tullika & John
With only four months to plan, Tullika and John knew that they had to make some quick decisions when it came to planning their Catholic-Hindu wedding celebration at Turner Hall. Despite the short time frame, everything came together perfectly with the fabulous Turner Hall as both the ceremony and reception site. This beer loving couple brought everything together including beer bottle cap boutonnieres designed by Emily at Stems. A room flip complete with a mandap deconstruction following the ceremony gave guests quite a show as they were enjoying their cocktails on the balcony!
