Love Letters


“You don’t find love, it finds you.
It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate and what’s written in the stars.”

I truly wouldn't have been able to execute my wedding without Nikki of Bermuda Bride. I wasn't one of those brides who has had a vision of their wedding day since they were little, but I do know what I like, and it's not always easy to put that into words. I think one of the most admirable qualities in Nikki, is she tries to understand your personality and encourages you to understand her, before she tries to plan your wedding. Just that alone, made us work together extremely well from the start. In that vein, I think it's about finding a wedding planner who understands you and will be your advocate the entire way. This, combined with Nikki's impeccable attention to detail and good taste, made our wedding day truly a success. Living in New York City, everything is at your fingertips. With a destination wedding, particularly on a small island like Bermuda, I just had to accept that would not be the case. That being said, Nikki was able to help me create an aesthetic that we would be able to source locally in Bermuda. I was always amazed at how well Nikki knew the inventory of the whole island! If she couldn't get something she would tell me, and she would always have alternative ideas; I really appreciated that level of honesty and creativity. You can't really put a price tag on not having to worry for the months leading up to your wedding, and while there is an inevitable amount of stress, working with Nikki really mitigated that stress and anxiety. In order to have a successful wedding day, I needed to have that sense of confidence and comfort the whole way through not just the day of. My wedding, simply stated, was happy. One of the most important things to me was being able to enjoy every minute of the day and night, but also to have our family and friends, and my husband love it just as much as I did. I wanted so much to be present and happy, and I have to say, that's truly how I felt. I loved the energy of our guests, the beautiful setting, and the classic, Bermuda feeling of it all.

Our wedding was a fairy tale. It was the best weekend of our lives! As soon as Bermuda Bride came into the picture, the wedding planning process not only became stress-free but fun for us too. I looked forward to my weekly calls with Nikki. She was always professional, real and fun to collaborate with. Being a destination wedding, we were obviously concerned about the distance and not being there to manage the process. Everyone was floored how organized and seamless the flow of the night went. And we have Bermuda Bride to thank for that. : ) I loved Bermuda Bride's attention to detail, nothing ever slipped by Nikki! I really appreciated the times when I was so focused on getting through my checklist of to-do's and found myself somewhat settling. Nikki would jump in and say: 'No...that is not what you want, we are going to get this right!' In the end, we got everything we wanted and more! It's officially been 2 weeks since our wedding, and we STILL have our parents, friends and families calling to tell us what an amazing time they had at our wedding.

Mary Grace’s wedding was perfect. My favorite memory from the whole day was the look on her face as I walked her down the aisle. Hiring Bermuda Bride to plan the wedding made the whole thing possible and ultimately, perfect. Expertise, client service and strategy were all a key part of the service. All were delivered with humor and style. In short, if you don't hire Nikki, you are an idiot. HIRE HER NOW and never worry again.

Bermuda is a place we hold very close to our hearts and we wanted to share that with our closest family and friends on our wedding day. My vision was not your typical beach wedding. I wanted something romantic and chic while still incorporating Bermuda’s rich history and its breathtaking scenery. Our wedding was pretty perfect. I honestly couldn’t have done it without Bermuda Bride and I mean every word of that. I never realized all the details and decisions (I think I made 1,000) that go into planning a wedding. The day of the wedding you want to enjoy the moment and all the people that traveling so far to celebrate with you. Having a wedding planner allowed me to completely focus on the day and enjoy every moment. Bermuda has strict guidelines for weddings. Originally, we had considered getting a wedding planner closer to home to help us with everything. We quickly realized we needed someone on the ground and couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision. Having someone knowledgeable of the customs and rules as well as Bermuda itself was a game changer. I was nervous because I wouldn’t be there to make every decision, but Nikki made me feel that I was a part of the process without actually being there. Working with Bermuda Bride made the process so much more manageable. Let me tell you, wedding planning is stressful! Nikki was so organized with her checklists and deadlines, to make sure I didn’t procrastinate all the time. I really needed that extra kick in the butt. Not to mention, my husband was thrilled he didn’t have to spend his weekends picking out linens and silverware. It would have been impossible to plan the wedding we wanted without Bermuda Bride. Thank you Nikki for holding my hand through the entire process. I appreciate every piece of advice, every word of wisdom and every bit of guidance she gave me. Nikki was such a calming force for me and I needed that. We were so thrilled with how everything turned out, a million thank yous wouldn’t be enough. Bermuda Bride really took my vision and made it a reality, and, for that, I will be forever grateful.

My heart is still glowing from the event. You absolutely "got" us and more importantly, showed us we could really enjoy the wedding planning! Bermuda Bride is the absolute best.

While planning the wedding, I tried to remain focused on what was most important to me, which was planning a really fun party (and weekend!) for the most important people in my life. I wanted the entire weekend to exude love in a sincere way. When I look back on the wedding, I think we truly accomplished that. People still tell me it was the most beautiful wedding (both in design and spirit) and weekend they've been to, which brings me so much joy. Thank you for helping me accomplish this! I literally could not have done this wedding without a wedding planner. I can't even begin to imagine how difficult that would have been. By working with Bermuda Bride, I did not need to worry about a thing! Everyone talks about how stressful planning a wedding is, but honestly, I didn't experience any stress. You made the entire process enjoyable. My favorite part about working with Bermuda Bride was your experience. Knowing you've done this a million times before, especially at Mid Ocean, made me feel comfortable that it was all going to work out ok. The wedding was absolutely perfect. And I know my mom was so proud of the entire event and still can't get over how magnificent it all was, so that of course makes me very happy.

Our wedding was simple and sophisticated. There were so many perfect moments from that day, but I loved the carriage ride with Justin after the ceremony. We were able to have a quiet moment, just the two of us, before all the madness kicked in. Having Bermuda Bride by our side allowed us to enjoy all the little moments on the wedding day, without having to run around in a manic rush. Nikki worked quietly behind the scenes to make sure everything was done in a seamless manner. We couldn’t have done it without her! Both Justin and I are Bermudian, so technically we didn’t have a destination wedding. However, we are currently living in London, so having Nikki on the ground cut down on the workload of planning our wedding from afar. Nikki regularly met with my mother and mother-in-law. They would then Skype me to discuss wedding details. As this was the first wedding in both of our families, Nikki was able to provide her advice and apply all her expertise to ensure every detail was handled in an efficient way. She has invaluable contacts all around the island, so was able to get things done without much action required by any of us. Having Nikki assist us make the wedding planning experience enjoyable. Plus, Nikki has a big personality so every meeting was fun and we always had a great laugh. I knew of Nikki’s reputation prior to engaging her, so I was able to relax and enjoy the process knowing I was in very capable hands. One of my favorite things was how Nikki had every minute of the wedding day planned and made sure that every part ran to a perfectly timed schedule. I love efficiency so this was fantastic for me.

Our wedding was an amazing celebration, uniquely ours, shared with those we cherish most - family, friends and each other. There were so many special memories, from small moments to grand expressions of joy! We carry them all, however, the one we hold most closely is a simple, quiet moment together as we gazed across the ocean spectacularly lit by the full moon, hopeful for our journey forward together. Working with a wedding planner allowed us to enjoy our day with confidence that our vision would be brought to life, and that we could focus on what really mattered that day. We could not have made our wedding the amazing reality it was without Bermuda Bride. They had excellent advice on who to work with, the things we didn't know we needed to know, problem-solving on every level, expert guidance and experience in making it all come together. Plus, it was a joy to share such a special journey with the absolutely wonderful Nikki Begg!

Our wedding day was everything we could have ever imagined! It brought together all the people we love, blended our German and Bermudian cultures, all set in an environment that was magical and unforgettable. Our favourite memory was after the ceremony when we rode to the reception in horse and carriage. It was just the two of us, which gave us some time to soak it all in and catch our breath! Having Bermuda Bride's guidance every step of the way, based on true experience, was invaluable. Particularly the last couple of weeks before the wedding, when all the organization was coming together, having Nikki on top of everything allowed us to fully enjoy, relax and savor the whole event. Bermuda Bride was a partner through all the planning twists and turns - from coordination of marriage licenses to advice on managing out of town guest and all their needs. Nikki's positive disposition and her ability to resolve any issue gave us a peace of mind, making the whole process a real pleasure!

Now that the dust has settled on our wedding I wanted to thank you so much for all of your work over the past few (hundred!) months. You were the perfect mix of supportive, directive, pragmatic and most of all patient with all of us. I absolutely loved the day itself – it was so special for both of us and your attention to detail was amazing. We will miss working with you. All the very best wishes,

Thank you for planning and orchestrating our magical, fun-filled weekend. It was hands-down, the best weekend of our entire lives. You were fun to work with and very professional at the same time. Thank you for understanding my vision and executing it so well. On the big day, you were beyond helpful and played so many roles. I cannot thank you enough. Everything was perfect! When we were told you were “the only wedding planner to use in Bermuda”, I didn’t even know how great you would be. Hugs and thanks
