Wedding of Your Dreams

WITHOUT KISSING YOUR VISION

(OR YOUR BUDGET) GOODBYE

Yes I want to plan my magical wedding now

So… you’re engaged?!!

nnYou’ve just started planning your oh-so amazing wedding. 

But you’ve heard the horror stories! 

I am going to be straight up with you – planning a wedding IS exciting but it can also feel chaotic, crazy expensive and completely overwhelming – there’s so much to do and you have no idea where to begin.

We have all been in lockdown for months now, you’re not sure if you should be working on your wedding and if you are, what you should be working on. You’ve kind of lost your mojo. You may be wondering if the wedding day you’ve dreamt about is ever going to happen….

Spoiler alert: It wilI.. I may even come and fluff your dress!

 

Welcome To

Your inspirational, no-nonsense planner for amazing brides who want to plan their wedding day with sass and style (and a whole lot of fun)

“Wedding planning is so much fun”…  said no bride (or groom) ever. And they’re right!  Not only do you have to decide where to get married but

when, how, and who will be coming?

How much is it going to cost? Who pays for what? 

How many shall we have in our bridal party? I only want two and you want 7?
How do we create a wedding day that ‘feels’ like us.
How do we make the day a special experience for our guests?

So many opinions and yes, there really are thousands of decisions…

Planning your wedding alone does not have to be your only option. 

 

Introducing your no nonsense, lots of fun, cut out the crazy

Wedding Planning Solution

rppAnd no… it’s not a trick!)

There is a step-by-step formula I have used, and refined over the past 20 years (and with more than 1700 weddings) from micro weddings to high end affairs.

So let’s create a day that cause those smile-worthy moments you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.  

Using these straight up planning strategies, you’ll:

  • be able to have your vision, budget and guest list in balance to create a strong foundation.
  • select vendors that complement your vision and tell them what information they need to help them do their best job – on time and on budget
  • wake up on your wedding day knowing everything has been arranged, timelines have been handed over, and all you have to do is get dressed, enjoy the day with close friends and show up (on time!)
  • walk down the aisle knowing everything was beautifully planned so you can…
  • say I do to the person you love and spend the rest of the day surrounded by family and friends. Your cheeks might just hurt from smiling.

    Meet Your Wedding Planner

    Hi, I’m Nikki

    Over the past 20 years, I have planned over 1700 weddings.

    I recall the day of my own destination wedding, long before I became a wedding planner and long before destination weddings were in fashion. I remember walking back to the hotel with my sister (who was also my Matron of Honour).

    I’d just had my hair done – and the curls were too tight. My head was exploding with all the things I had to do. My sister could see the stress written on my face. Suddenly she stopped me, took me by the shoulders and said…

    “Nikki, you have put so much time, love and energy into creating your wedding. Now you’re completely stressed out. Is this really how you want to remember your wedding day?”

    She was right. But there was no one else handle the timeline details – they were all in my head. Instead of hiring a planner, I wanted to plan our wedding myself. Because I thought I could do it all…I was super organised. But was I?

    There was one thing I had overlooked… I was the bride. I wanted to enjoy my wedding day. And that was impossible while juggling all the details.

    Because no matter how organized you think you are,  you can’t let go unless you a bullet proof timeline with all the details. 

    “The day I had spent more than a year planning began filled with stress and anxiety”

    I had put so much pressure on myself to create an incredible experience for all our guests, I almost worried the day away. It wasn’t until we left the church and I saw how much everyone was enjoying themselves that I realized I had not really been “in the moment” for my very own wedding.

    Since then, I have figured out a solid strategy to wedding planning that absolutely works regardless of the size of the guest list or the budget.

    But here’s the part I really love! 

    Showing you how to plan your wedding day helps you feel in control, clears away the confusion, cuts back on stressful moments and brings such a huge sense of inner peace. You’ve got this! 

    Nikki is a gem of a person and her wedding planning skills are bar none, the best out there! We didn’t have our wedding in Bermuda, so I knew we couldn’t hire Nikki and her team to plan our big day. So instead, I hired Nikki’s brain to help me make sure I didn’t mess anything up when planning our wedding myself. Nikki’s step-by-step guidance helped ensure our ceremony, reception and entire weekend (destination wedding) went off without a hitch. Most importantly, despite me being the #1 head honcho for everything, I enjoyed the whole affair, without one ounce of stress. Guests came up to me throughout the weekend, astonished that I could hang out with everyone and wasn’t running around taking care of last-minute details. They kept saying: “How are you so relaxed? Are you sure you don’t need to be doing something else?” Look, if all goes well, you only get married once in your life. And how often do you have all your favorite people, in one place, celebrating you and your partner? Make the most of those special moments! And hire Nikki’s brain to help you take care of all the nitty-gritty beforehand.”

    Lauren and Cam

    I never realized all the details and decisions (I think I made 1,000) that go into planning a wedding. Let me tell you, wedding planning is stressful! Nikki was so organized with her checklists and deadlines, to make sure I didn’t procrastinate all the time. I really needed that extra kick in the butt. Not to mention, my husband was thrilled he didn’t have to spend his weekends picking out linens and silverware. It would have been impossible to plan the wedding we wanted without Bermuda Bride.”

    Mary Grace and Wyot

    There were no dilemmas, only solutions. Nikki shaped our dreams, schemed, trimmed and polished everything that could or might be possible. We were always a team. Nikki always reminded us that WE were in charge while, at the same time, ensuring that our overall direction and decisions were sensible as well as tasteful.”

    Cost was certainly something we always thought about when planning our wedding, but Nikki made sure to work within our budget and really carry out the vision we wanted. Whatever concern we had, she made us feel comfortable and our voices heard without any judgment or reservation.”

    Ashley and Manuel

    I loved the attention to detail, nothing ever slipped by Nikki! I really appreciated the times when I was so focused on getting through my checklist of to-do’s and found myself somewhat settling and Nikki jumping in and saying, ‘No… that is not what you want, we are going to get this right!’ In the end, we got everything we wanted and more!”

    Nikki has a big personality so every meeting was fun and we always had a great laugh. I knew of Nikki’s reputation prior to engaging her so I was able to relax and enjoy the process knowing that I was in very capable hands. One of my favorite memories was of the day and how Nikki had every minute of the day planned and she made sure that every part ran to a perfectly timed schedule. I love efficiency so that was fantastic for me.”

    Sophia and Justin

    While planning the wedding, I tried to remain focused on what was most important to me, which was planning a really fun party (and weekend!) for the most important people in my life and for the entire weekend to exude love in a sincere way. When I look back on the wedding, I think we truly accomplished that. People still tell me it was the most beautiful wedding (both in design and spirit) and weekend they’ve been to, which brings me so much joy. Thank you for helping me accomplish this!”

    Jessica and Joe

    Thank you for holding my hand through the entire process. I appreciate every piece of advice, every word of wisdom and every bit of guidance you gave me. You were such a calming force for me and I needed that. We were so thrilled with how everything turned out, a million thank you’s wouldn’t be enough. You really took my vision and made it a reality and for that I will be forever grateful. There were a few tears (mine), a lot of laughs. Everyone is still singing your praises and the feedback couldn’t be more complementary.”
