About Don't Mess With the Bride

Don't Mess With The Bride is a one-of-a-kind Wedding Coordinator and Planner.  We specialize in DIY Couples with some planning along the way.  Want help from Engagement to Happily Ever After?  We do that too!   Here's what makes us different:

- We offer Male & Female Event Managers.   We offer a different, no-drama approach to any bumps in the road.   Cool and collected is how we roll.

- Our Emergency Kit includes:  a drill, extension cords, wire, rope, plug adaptors, a hammer, glue, duct tape (lots of it) and extra snacks!   Most emergencies that we've run into call for one of the above... Bobby Pins and tissues... We can find that too, but more than likely, you've got that covered!

- We offer staff from 1 - 10 folks!   If you just want someone to keep you on schedule from your rehearsal to the toasts, we can do that.   If you want us to transform a room from ceremony to reception in less than an hour?  We can do that too!

- We can boss your friends around.   We have no issues telling your friends what to do... To save on budget, just give us several "muscle" and "Finesse" and we'll make Wedding Magic happen!

Will was fantastic, very professional, personable, and on top of everything which alleviated the stresses of our special day. We highly recommend him and his staff for your special event.

I cant say enough about Will. I cant imagine having a more stress-free well-run and managed wedding, and most of that is due to Will. He was reaching out to vendors on his own before our wedding day even though we technically only hired him as a "day-of" coordinator. He went above and beyond his call of duty. I felt such an ease all day knowing Will was there and helping with everything while I was just getting pampered and ready. He took charge during the rehearsal and made sure all of the wedding party was rehearsed and informed on how the next day would run. It truly was a perfect day and I have Will to thank for that.

We could not have pulled off our wedding without Will and his team! We weren't sure if it was worth the investment to hire a DOC but hands down it is. Will displayed the utmost professionalism with his calm demeanor and ensuring everything went as smoothly as possible, going beyond the call at the end of the night to wrap things up. Things didn't go perfectly but I don't believe you can account and take care for everything with the magnitude of moving parts. During the planning phase, Will was very attentive to our vision of having a creative DIY wedding and guided us along the way without being forceful. Because Will has a full time job on the side, some things were not as detailed or prompt but this isn't an issue if you have a more relaxed personality but may be if you are full on Type A or a bridezilla. Thank you Will for bringing our crazy wedding to life - you rock!!
