Challenging only because of poor design
So, I started off really liking this game during the trial. Once I purchased the full version, it went down hill.
There are a few things that are incredibly irritating about this game. First, this game is pegged as time management, but they have these "mini-games" pop up in the middle of rounds that basically involve matching. I don't think the matching is fun and they just add extra levels of matching as the game goes on, so the irritation about that builds.
Second, you queue up actions that trigger mini-games. Once triggered, you HAVE TO finish it before they will let you click on anything else. You can't right click or get out of it and come back. So, you can watch yourself lose a customer because you picked the white fabric when the hat is a gray fabric.
Third, even after you've finished the mini-game, there is an added couple seconds (while you watch something happen to keep you from getting expert score) for the mini-game to make some noise and have a heart swirl around on the screen.
Fourth, there isn't really a challenge in the game except pure luck. You can't get better at timing the actions and the mini-games because the people that come in are completely random. I've replayed levels and gotten completely different characters. The same characters don't have a predictable order of requests to adapt to. There is no way to manage your time for the people that show up in your shop because they are all completely random. If you get lucky about the order (and click on the coffee a lot), you'll get expert. If you're unlucky, it is still really easy to beat levels.
I this game is just a poorer version of others in this category.

Sexist and Boring
I don't know what I was expecting with this game. It's time management, and I thought it would be fun to play a game that involved pretty wedding dresses. There are no wedding dresses except in the scenery. You match women with old fashioned dresses, old fashioned fabrics, old fashioned hair cuts, and old fashioned flowers. The overarching goal of this game is to get enough expert stars to set up your own wedding. Yay!
Here's the thing. I had to turn off the sound because the noises the women make when you move them made me....uncomfortable.
One of the "skills" you can purchase through your AMAZING photography (taking pictures of table corners) is "attractiveness" which causes customers to like you more so you make more money.
There are absolutely no pretty wedding dresses, or anything pretty to look at aside from the scenery. The dresses you set up customers look like something you would wear to a garden party in the 40s. The main character's hair looks like something from the 70s. This game felt like a pure attempt to solidify "traditional" values.
With a wedding game, you expect some bridezillas, or jealous bridesmaids, or something funny. No. The brides are super excited, the grooms have cold feet, and the mother in law is just so worried about impressing her future daughter in law.
Usually, I can get through a time management game pretty quickly, but I could not stomach this one long enough to finish it. It is not nearly fun enough to make up for the serious plot issues and bad graphic art.

After buying wedding Dash I was pretty keen to try my hand at some other wedding games. I can't believe I wasted my time on this! Here are my thoughts:
The minigames were the only thing worth mentioning as good on this game. The were fun and entertaining, a rare high point of this game.
VIP's. They added extra challenge to the game, but also annoyed me a little because sometimes I would get way to overwhelmed and lose customers
I have honestly never played a game with such a terrible storyline. Holy is getting married and needs to run a wedding salon to help her prepare? That's honestly one of the weirdest, most boring and idiotic storylines I've ever heard.
Upgrades. They cost way too much.
Upgrading Hollys' wedding venue. The whole concept of this was ridculous and to affod them you had to get expert on pretty much every level.
Male/Female combos. Seriously, how ridiculous can this game get? I didn't see any benefits of this and it meant that the waiting line got bigger and bigger untill I got comletely overwhelmed.
The game was very poorly designed. The game lacks fun and I really did NOT want to keep playing it.
And to top it all off: This game had terrible graphics. The animation looked ridiculous and cheap.
Stay away from this game.
