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.
