My name is Rachael Solomon and I started bad boss bride while planning my own wedding. I'd worked as a Producer for over 10 years. Working on Broadway productions, with museums producing everything to 500 person galas to video shoots with companies like Google, Airbnb, JCREW and more. With all this experience I went into planning my wedding wearing my producer hat. But I still wanted to be able to relax and enjoy, not only my day but the entire process. I turned to several planners and coordinators and found there to be a huge void in the industry. No one seemed to understand that it's not just your wedding day you want to enjoy but the entire process leading up to it! Your Wedding day is just one day, and it flies by so fast! I knew with my background I could solve this issue. My mission is to make your wedding day wonderful and every step of the planning process fun and as stress free as possible!

Rachael took our whole vision and put it into real life. My husband was apprehensive about using a planner in the first place, thinking we could “save and do things ourselves since it’s a small wedding “. That statement was so wrong and my husband even admits it after our amazing day! :) if you have a small wedding, it’s even more important that you get the chance to celebrate the day with your loved ones, and a planner like Rachael will really help you create that experience. We keep talking about how happy we are Rachael was there to make our microwedding day so special. I don’t think we ever imagined having such a beautiful wedding day, and it was really all thanks to Rachael’s carefully thought out recommendations and creations. From the table pieces she made and then the photographer, venue, and even the truly talented guitar player/singer she recommended. It was the most beautiful day of our lives. And it was our wedding! We were able to spend more time with family and the ones we love because Rachael kept things running smoothly on our day. There is so much value to using a planner, especially Rachael, on your day. A lot of people ask me if we spent more than we actually did on our the day. But it was thanks to Rachael’s special touches and care that we can look back on this day and think about it in the happy, joyful way that we do.Sent on 07/22/2021

Pulled together our amazing dreamwedding in 10 days
I found Rachael (Bad Boss Bride) 10 days before my wedding, during COVID-19 in early June. My Fiance and I had almost given up on our dream wedding as the governor only announced allowing outdoor gatherings two weeks before our wedding, and we were tired from the legal battle with our original wedding and unplanning every detail we had worked so hard on in the year prior planning.
Rachael came in at a fair and affordable rate, was beyond professional and attentive. She thoroughly planned every detail of our special day in just 10 short days- and it looked like something should have taken months of planning! She recommended great, trustworthy and professional vendors who went above and beyond.
The day of the wedding, Rachael and her team set up and coordinated everything so my family and I could finally relax after a rollercoaster of a few months related to wedding planning.
Rachael perfectly encapsulated and delivered my vision seamlessly. She blended in perfectly with my family and couldn't have been more kind, compassionate or helpful during these uncertain times for all.
It's been a week since our wedding and I already miss my nightly calls with Rachael!
She is an exceptional vendor of the wedding industry and her passion, expertise, and kindness will be sure to deliver you with the day you've always dreamed of!

Bad Boss Bride's reply:Thank you so much Alanna! It was beyond a pleasure working with you and getting to meet and spend time with your wonderful family! Your trust in me and my team made my job a breeze. We literally felt like family at your wedding! A gorgeous couple deserves a gorgeous wedding and I hope we delivered that to you! Wishing nothing but the best and endless happiness for you and Andrew and the pups!

BBB is a gem
Because of the pandemic, we had to cancel our destination wedding plans and shifted to a local intimate ceremony and dinner instead. I had 4 months to book a whole new team of vendors to keep our original date, and I'm so glad Rachael was the first one I hired. She has a background as a producer so understands event design and run of show. We just clicked. She absolutely crushed the day-of coordination and floral design -- insane that she does BOTH and offers reasonable package pricing. At no point in the entire process did my husband and I feel stressed or worried about any of the details. She took our direction well but offered her own creative opinion on everything -- it was a nice balance. She recommended a great photographer and rentals vendor that we're so glad we added to our dream team. She handled the setup and breakdown of our event with ease within a tight timeline. My family and friends had nothing but positive things to say about her and her team's professionalism. It was truly a memorable day in that we were able to just enjoy ourselves. Highly recommend -- BBB is a gem.Sent on 05/25/2021
