Meet your Planners
Behind the clipboards
We are at your service.
We believe in the personal touches that make your wedding meaningful, romantic and unique. The name “Maid for the Bride” is exactly that – we are here to serve you when and where you need help most.
The best part is that you choose how much (or how little) assistance you require.
Our goal is to cater to your needs, no matter where you are in the planning stages. No matter how large or small the request, we are always happy to lend a hand.
We offer a variety of services that are based on the practical jobs you would ask your own wedding party to do, including the Coordination & DIY Packages. Rather than relying on family and friends to get the details done, we take on the challenging tasks and help you coordinate, guide, delegate and deliver all of the key details. All services are tailored to your individual needs.
Please know that hiring a reliable wedding planner doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, what you plan to spend is entirely up to you. Our initial consultation meeting is free of charge. It gives us a chance to discuss your needs, giving you the opportunity to decide if we are the right fit for your wedding.
