Memories Last Forever
For The Sophisticated bride who knows what she wants! April Dorsey 407-687-6552
Do I really need a wedding planner? Let’s be honest… your wedding day is supposed to be an amazing day, right? This starts with your groom (well at the time he was your boyfriend but now he has been promoted since he gave you that that pretty ring), down on one knee (usually, lol) with a special proposal. You have made the phone calls and spread the news!!! Time to get the magazines out and try on dresses, flowers, invitations……. The joy of planning a wedding can go perfectly or head south really fast. It doesn’t have to be stressful you know!!! There are three kinds of brides, so it is important to determine which kind of bride you are….. ♥
The bride who is totally into the planning and has a strong support system. This bride will have plenty of time to plan the wedding and only needs a Day of Coordinator to ensure the day goes as planned and they can enjoy the day with their friends and family.
The Bride who has started the planning and just gets stuck. Nothing to be ashamed about because planning a wedding can be confusing. Heck, you have never done this before. How are you supposed to know who is a professional? Pricing? Quality? You are not!!!! This is the bride that needs someone to take over the rest of the planning and bring the fun back to wedding planning.
The bride who is super busy with work and everything else wants someone to streamline the process from Day ONE!!!
Full service planning is not just luxury. The right planner can make the process simple, organized and SO much fun.
What kind of bride are you?
The next few pages define the options for you. Make your engagement a blast and have FUN!!!
That is the start of a great wedding!!!
I am really passionate about the things I LOVE. When I love, I love BIG!!! In no order, ok so maybe My Family comes first. I have been married to my best friend over 20 years and I still cherish everyday we spend together (In case you haven’t realized, I am a hopeless romantic!!!)
As a self proclaimed sugar addict, I never pass up a cupcake or yogurt (in, fact, you will find that most of our meetings happen at the local yogurt shop.)
Who doesn’t just love their iPad. As an integral part of my work and home life, I cant live without it. You will see my pink ipad and iphone everywhere I am!!!
My wedding treat, other than cake, is a diet coke. I try to keep them at a minimum but a 12 hour day deserves a little treat, dontcha’ think?
I think one of my favorite things to do is shop for shoes!!! There is nothing that a sassy pair of shoes wont fix!!!
They say that lip gloss is an addiction. Well, I am living proof. I always have 5 in my purse at a time. The sad thing is they are usually the same color lol.
Champagne Roses! Sooo romantic!!! Give me 7 as a symbol of love…. Yup, that is what it means ☺
And they always come in 3!!!

Love back from our brides….
We love our brides and from the minute you meet us, you know that to be a fact….. Words cannot describe how awesome April is. She was the key to making our wedding day a day to remember!!!! Not only did she provide comfort and guidance throughout the process, we even had a few laughs along the way. April's knowledge and experience gave me confidence selecting venues and vendors! All I can say is we couldn't have done it without her. Thank you to April and the D-tales, you are my #1 recommendation!!....S.P. April & Her Team are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The D-Tales went above and beyond from what I expected from them. From our Initial Consultation April did an amazing job of getting to know me as her client, understanding the needs and developing something as I am not your average Bride. If it wasn't for her and her team, I know our special day would've been a disaster. April is a great person to work with, organized, high energy, caring, sweet, positive and VERY RELIABLE! My Groom & I couldn't be happier with all she has done for us and the result of the wedding day. Thank you TONS April!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!! :) ……. Ms To Mrs. As I stated on Facebook, a mere "post" really can't express how much we appreciate your help. But in a nutshell, my new HUSBAND, Tony V and I agree that YOU ROCK!! ☺ We hired April to rescue us from a crazy planning experience and take care of our Day-Of Coordination. April was so awesome, and truly went out of her way to help out with last few vendor meetings that I had, and helped me to find some of the special personalized things that I needed to make our day special and unique. She was super organized and helped me think of a lot of things that I might have overlooked. And on the day of, her and Bonnie seriously just kept us so cool. I can't thank you enough for coming to our rescue, and I will certainly pass you on to any of my bride-to-be friends! Thank you thank you Thank YOU! Mr. and Mrs. V April truly went above and beyond even our wildest dreams. Our wedding day would have been incomplete without her. The attention she pays to the little details sent my wedding from AMAZING to SPECTACULAR!!!! Our day went so smoothly that my husband and I didn't have to think about anything except having a good time and sharing our love. She is what made our day perfect. If your thinking about getting married and you don't want all the stress she should be the first thing you book. Luv D
