Introducing a New Package!

Bride Support is pleased to introduce a new package to our services.

The Premium Coordination package is the perfect medium between the day-of coordination and full service package. This is perfect for the bride who wants just a little bit more help – but not quite needing the detailed help of the full-service package.

If you enjoy the planning, but want someone alongside for support, use the Premium Coordination package to make sure your planning is right on track! Check out the details here and email for your free consultation.

Featured: Maple Grove Magazine

I was beyond thrilled when the editor of Maple Grove magazine reached out to me to ask if I’d like to be a part of their February edition’s “Maple Grove Wedding Guide.” After a lovely conversation with their writer (who later came to be the mother of one of my fabulous brides! :)) and a little patience – the issue arrived in my mail box!

The guide features some other great local vendors as well – such as Falula’s Floral, Revived Tableware and All About Honeymoons.

Featured Vendor: Minnesota Wedding Officiant

Everyone knows the basic vendors you should be booking first when planning a wedding – venue, food/beverage, flowers and photography. But don’t forget to add one more to that list…because without it, you won’t be able to actually get married! Lining up an officiant for your wedding should be at the top of your list. Whether it be a pastor from your church or a third-party officiant – their schedules book up fast and far out, so make sure and get on the list early!

For Twin Cities brides who are looking for an officiant, you should look no further than Rev. Tomkin Coleman. Not only can he take care of all of your marrying needs on the day of – he has a wonderfully thorough website that can help you during your planning! He goes through all types of venues in the Twin Cities, explaining their grounds, catering and guidelines. You can also learn about lots of helpful tips and local vendors on his Minnesota wedding blog.
