What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
Being a Wedding Planner gives me the opportunity to connect with couples on a whole other level. I get to create magic each and every time I plan a wedding. There is nothing more fulfilling then organizing an event that celebrates love, family, and togetherness on such an important day for couples. I am so blessed to work with couples who value and appreciate what I do as a Wedding Planner, knowing we are right by their side to assist them with their dream is something I cannot really put in words. I really do love what I do!
How did you get started?
I began working in the Wedding & Event industry at a very young age. I worked closely as an executive assistant for a catering company for a few years prior to venturing out into the Wedding industry as an event planner. My background in food, beverage, and fashion provided me with all of the qualities and experience I would need to venture out on my own.
What budget range do you cater to?
We work with all budgets
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
I love getting to know my prospect clients; I say this because no matter if you are coming in to find out if we’re a good fit, I want to ensure we leave a lasting impression. We value your time and the opportunity given to meet with us. I like to take my time with everyone; we do not rush your experience to meet with us. I want each person who visits us to be relaxed and feel invited, know that you`re in great hands and we`ll take care of you. And when you’re ready to move forward that is when the real magic happens!
When we started the wedding planning process, we were overwhelmed with what seemed like endless decisions that needed to be made. All that stress ended the moment we hired Diana. Having an Indian/French Canadian fusion wedding, we were looking for someone who could help us make our vision come true. She exceeded that expectation and every other one we had for a wedding planner.
Diana was with us every step of the way in the planning process. She kept us on track and always had the perfect suggestion when we were stumped for ideas or trying to make the best use of our budget. She has great, creative ideas and has the perfect connections in the industry to make it happen.
Being through on the other side of the wedding planning process, we now know how rare it is to find a vendor that genuinely cares about your day and is willing to go the extra mile to make your dreams come true. From day 1 Diana made us feel that our wedding was her top priority. She kept us on track and, more importantly, was the reason we were truly able to sit back and enjoy every moment of our wedding day. No couple could ask for more than that.
On the day of, Diana and her team were amazing. What makes it even more incredible is that Diana actually gave birth just days before our wedding! You’d never know it because she didn’t skip a beat. So many of our family and friends have given us endless compliments on Diana and her team’s professionalism and their ability to keep everything moving so smoothly that day.
Every amazing review you’ve read about her is 100% true. Trust me when I say that every cent you spend on her will be one you will be very grateful for in the end. If you’re debating on whether or not to choose her, think no more! This is a decision you will not regret. She is truly the best at what she does.

Initially we thought that we could plan a wedding on our own, but we discovered quickly that aside from the fact that the groom was busy running his company, and aside from the fact that we’re both notorious procrastinators (hence it took us four months to write this review after our wedding), the planning process also proved to be very overwhelming and stressful. We did secure a date and venue on our own, as well as a band and invitation design, but with the date just a few months away we hadn’t yet planned much else. So finally we decided that we needed a wedding planner, and we found Diana from Truly Yours Planning on Wedding Wire.
From the moment we met Diana, we knew she was the right choice for us. We met with other wedding planners as well, but Diana was the most professional, confident, and detail-oriented of the bunch. She got to work immediately upon us hiring her, and in no time she introduced us to some incredibly talented people, including a photography/cinematography company, and a decorator. Everyone that Diana recommended are the best at what they do as far as we’re concerned, as is Diana herself.
Diana’s experience and organizational skills are for sure two of her biggest strengths. She scheduled all of our appointments for us and booked them back-to-back whenever possible to save us time. She very quickly understood our vision in terms of design and was able to relay it with ease to the decor company, who then were very quick and efficient in showing us samples that matched what we wanted. Diana also made herself available for all of our vendor appointments to make sure we understood everything and that no detail was missed, and she was great at asking questions that we wouldn’t have even thought to ask because she knew what we were looking for.

To say Diana was amazing is a huge understatement. From the organizing to the planning of the details, we were lost trying to do it ourselves. Organizing a wedding in another province was looking daunting to both of us. Looking back, I am so grateful we found Diana. She was incredible with her professional approach and very caring nature; she made our whole experience something we sometimes struggle to put into words. To say it was the absolute best day of our lives is a gross understatement. Diana ensured our day went off without a hitch. We will be forever grateful! I hope my comments do her justice. I hope others can utilize Diana because she is absolutely the BEST!
