Based in Northern California, Dreams on a Dime regularly works the greater San Francisco Bay Area and is more than willing to travel.
Jessica Goldblatt created Dreams on a Dime with the conviction that “it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to have a fabulous event! By being smart and creative with your money, you can create the event you’ve imagined without breaking the bank.” When it comes to your wedding design, they strongly believe that “No two couples are alike, and because of that no two weddings should be alike.” By really listening to their couples and asking all the right questions, Dreams on a Dime will help bring your vision to reality and make sure your wedding bursts with your unique style—and all, of course, within your budget.
Packages start at $1000. Dreams on a Dime offers full wedding planning, partial wedding planning, and day-of wedding coordination. An a la carte package for venue and vendor research and referrals is also available. Jessica and her team will even review your contracts and create your day-of timeline.
My mother inspired not only the businesses name but also the overall philosophy of our company. Throwing a memorable event doesn't mean you have to spend a fortune; by being smart, creative, and thoughtful, you can create an inspiring, special event with memories that will last a lifetime.
We have no misconceptions about whose event it is—this is YOUR event and we're here to help make it happen. While we are happy to give ideas and experienced advice, we will honor your vision, ideas, and budget. At the end of the day, we want you to walk away from your event and think, "I loved everything about our wedding!"
I came from a music industry background and got my start with events there and with non-profit organizations. It wasn't really one thing that drew me to this field. The combination of coordinating all the different elements, the bit of day-of craziness, bringing in some touches of creativity, and the satisfaction you get when the clients tell you they're thrilled with the finished product is why we do what we do.
Oh, so many things! Seeing the groom tear up when he sees the bride for the first time walking down the aisle, seeing the pride and emotion on the faces of friends and family, watching a couple really enjoy themselves laughing and being together. While we can look back at venues, flowers, dresses and appreciate how amazing they are, it's really the people who make the event memorable.
Decide what's really important and don't get caught up in the little things. Remember that your friends and family are there to be with you and share your special day, not because they're getting dinner or a wedding favor. There is a big difference between the marriage and the wedding; the marriage is the heart of what you are celebrating and the wedding is the party. If you keep that in mind, all the small things that can get you frazzled take on a new meaning.
That would be a toss up between being able to make people feel instantly relaxed or slowing down the clock so we have more time to get things done!
Thoughtful, fun, understanding.
I'd be a drummer in a rock band!! Who cares that I don't know how to play the drums!
As boring as it is, doing a whole lot of nothing does the trick. Cooking dinner, watching a movie, reading in bed. Sometimes, less is more!
I don't remember a time in my life when I didn't have pets. Right now, I have a brindle pit bull rescue named Emma. We lovingly refer to her as "dingbat." She hangs out with us in the office and pesters clients into petting her when they stop by.

“I recommend Jessica to every bride I meet and tell them that she is the best gift you can give yourself on the day of your wedding—besides marrying your man of your dreams.”

“The best part of working with Jessica is that at no point in any of the planning did she ever pressure me to spend more than my budget allowed—she is extremely mindful of her client and that is exactly why I think many people like her and are pleased with her services.”
