Your Dream Day Cafe: Featured Vendor Of The Week! Week 3

Kathy Piech-Lukas has been my fairy godmother this past year.  Shear Hotness is the glass slipper that it is today, in part due to her: guidance, patience, and expertise of the bridal industry.  Kathy’s bubbly, animated personality eased my jitters when I was the newbie vendor at the cafe… and becoming a preferred vendor of Your Dream Day Cafe is one of the best business decisions I’ve made all year.  Your Dream Day Cafe is, without a doubt, your “go to” when searching for the best bridal vendors in the business! So without further ado, here is this week’s featured vendor!


  • When did Y.D.D. open?
  • Who started the business?
Me, Kathy Piech-Lukas
  • Inspiration behind the concept?
Prior to opening the company, I worked in corporate event planning working for two different Fortune 500 companies. During the weeks leading up to my wedding I had five different vendors suggest to me that I become a wedding planner. I had no idea what that was, so I had to do some research about it. The number of customers we had doubled each year the first three years we were in business, and the rest is history.
  • What services does Y.D.D offer?
We offer wedding planning and consulting services, including full planning, partial planning, vendor referrals and selection, schedule creation, checklist and timeline management, and weekend wedding coordination. We also offer wedding gown preservation.
  • What makes Y.D.D. different?
We develop very close relationships with our clients, almost like a big sister to the bride and a translator for the parents. We have a very energetic, fun easy going style. We love to laugh and have fun with you and the planning.
  • What’s new on the horizon?
We now have two locations — our main location, located in the Shops of Oakwood, which also includes a self serve wedding planning cafe, meeting rooms for vendors, fresh daily cake samples, and planning resources. Our second location is located inside the Sharonville Fine Arts Center in Cincinnati, right in downtown Sharonville
