Beyond Platinum Weddings: Dream Designing my own Big Day


By Tiffany Nieves, CEO, Dream Design Weddings


The Proposal Paris—Yes, Paris!


“Platinum Weddings” featured Planner Tiffany Nieves shares her own wedding planning journey in a special 3-part series.


Planning my own wedding has been an interesting journey. It has been exciting, awkward at times, and has given me a fresh


new planning


perspective as a bride. All of which I will delve into in each of the 3 parts of this series. I am often asked how my planning is going, "it must be hard planning your own" they say or “ this must be easy for you" I often hear. Well, both are true.


Let's back track for just a second. JC (my hubby to be) and I went to Paris in 2010 for Valentine's Day. I had no idea when


we planned this trip, or when we left, that he would propose while we were there. Yes, it did cross my mind for about thirty seconds. But after all of our friends and family told me he would propose when we were there, I was positive there was no chance this would happen. After all, I am a wedding planner, I know that 10% of Americans get engaged on Valentine’s Day and then add Paris...No way, he would never do what he thinks everyone would expect. Boy was I surprised!!! After 7 of the most thrilling and romantic days of my life, we said good- bye to Paris. On our plane ride home I suddenly realized I was a bride-to-be, then all at once the reality of, “OMG I'm getting married” set in. All of the thoughts that go swirling through every bride’s mind were swirling through mine—that's right, I was not exempt from the overwhelming thoughts of who, where, when, how many, and so on, and so on.
