Perry, owner and operator of Friend
of the Bride, is a professional bridal consultant who has been providing
wedding consulting and coordination services since 1993. Friend of
the Bride can assist you in all phases of planning your event, doing
as much or as little as you need, while staying within your budget.
career as a wedding coordinator began during the time my husband
and I operated a highly successful full service entertainment agency.
We represented the finest bands, orchestras, and musical talent
in the Boston area, and proudly served clients from around New England,
assisting them with the selection of just the right entertainment
for their special day.
Soon, my clients began asking me for assistance with their other
planning requirements - everything from caterers and photographers
to horse-and-carriage rentals and custom-made wedding invitations.
In 1995, I formalized my education by enrolling in professional
training courses through the Association of Bridal Consultants in
Connecticut. I also hold a paralegal degree, and was employed in
that capacity for nearly twenty years. This unique combination of
skills and experience is extremely advantageous when drafting and
negotiating contracts for wedding related products and services.
priority is to help you plan your wedding, your way, and on your
budget. My network of professional wedding vendors has been carefully
selected not only for their preferred rates and discounts, but because
of the exceptional service and superior products they provide. Together,
we work as a team to ensure that your wedding day dreams
become treasured wedding day memories.
