About

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!

    Our experience with DMWTB was above and beyond for our wedding!

    Will, Rhania, & Sonya were all an answer to prayer! Our original "wedding coordinator" that we hired for our wedding was very very unimpressive. She refused to help with any day of setting up (for example: sticking 9 candle sticks in candle holders) and when we tried to get in contact with her she had told us that another wedding was priority over ours so she didn't have time to help answer our questions. This had gone on for a few months and we had finally had enough and let her go the week before our wedding. Fast forward to when I connected with Will from DMWTB. He was very responsive from the beginning and so helpful in answering any questions and offering lots of reassurance. He and his team took on our wedding with only 1 week to prepare and let me tell you..... THEY KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK! We met over Zoom a few times to really nail down our vision and get all of the logistics and timelines in order. They have every detail organized and are great at providing reassurance every step of the way. Will and Sonya were at our rehearsal dinner and we ran through rehearsal twice very smoothly. On the day of the wedding, Rhania and Sonya ran the show! Rhania is so thoughtful and great at what she does. She made sure all of the small last minute details were setup accordingly on the day of. She even gave my bridesmaids and I a ride to our first look pictures so that we didn't have to walk and she even helped me clean my dress when drinks were spilled on it. Everyone at our wedding praised about how great Rhania was the whole time and how thoughtful she was! Thank you so much DMWTB for making our wedding a day we could fully enjoy and not stress about! We will definitely recommend DMWTB to all of our friends and family!

    Great investment

    Momo, Rhania, Madison, and Will were a huge asset in helping to manage the ever changing details of our wedding - thank you Covid and a heatwave! Momo, Rhania and Madison did a stellar job on our wedding day making sure everything was setup and running smoothly - especially considering it was 108 degrees outside! They helped to make sure everyone was staying hydrated and comfortable. Hiring Don't Mess with the Bride was definitely the right decision and I can't thank them enough!

    Enabled the Best, Stress-Free Wedding Day

    The DMWTB team took so much of the stress out of the planning process. Every interaction with Will and Kari left us feeling knowledgeable in what our next steps were, more confident in our decisions, and reassured that our day was going to be what we were envisioning.

    For our rehearsal dinner and wedding day, the team took over and allowed us to enjoy time with our people. Kari was able to make everything flow in a way that felt very organic and true to who we are. Hiring DMWTB was truly one of the best investments we made for our wedding and we give them our highest recommendation for anyone looking for coordination & planning.
