7/6/14 – As an out of town bride, I knew I would need some help pulling off our perfect wedding. I researched wedding planners in the Rhode Island area and found Brandi to be the most responsive to my initial emails and liked that her website included multiple ‘looks’ in the photo gallery. After our first meeting, my fiancé, who was pretty quiet during the planning process, said he thought Brandi’s personality and work ethic would be great fit for me to work with… and boy was he right!! Brandi made my engagement one of the most stress free and fun times in my life. We would come in town and go to 4-6 meetings with different vendors (caterer, florist, rentals, etc.). Brandi would organize all of the meetings based on my feedback from vendors we’d discussed on email/phone. It was so nice having Brandi give me a list of her top 3-5 vendors, I pick 1 or 2, meetings were set up, proposals were made.. and then we would sign a contract. This is where I felt such a value in our decision to work with a planner. All of the heavy lifting in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding was done by Brandi… she filters all the work so that the fun exciting stuff is what my fiancé and I got to focus on.
Fast forward 6 1/2 months from our first meeting and I walk into the wedding of my dreams. Brandi took my vision, ideas, thoughts, and dreams and brought them to life in one of the most beautiful reception tents I’ve ever seen. We had multiple family members (mom, aunts, uncles) and friends who kept telling us how flawlessly our ceremony and reception were executed. The wedding ran on time, the ceremony flowed seamlessly into the cocktail hour and we were whisked from the alter to pictures and finally into our reception while soaking in every minute. Brandi did all of the hard work, organizing, arranging, coordinating, and every other verb in the book to make sure that our wedding day flowed like a story book experience. My mom still can’t stop raving about what a critical role Brandi played in our wedding. If you want a headache free engagement that leads to a dream wedding, then Blissful Events is a no brainer for any bride to be!
