we’re not your “typical” wedding planner
You’re just starting your wedding planning and you’re already overwhelmed, confused, and about to throw in the towel. Bridezilla Events cuts through the confusion and provides clarity to the wedding planning & floral design process. Going through the journey of wedding planning, you are forced to make dozens of decisions (and it turns to hundreds when you’re not working with a planner). When you book Bridezilla Events, you’re not just booking another wedding vendor. Bridezilla Events is a boutique wedding planning and floral design company that caters to couples with full-time work schedules & minimal time allotted to planning a wedding. How does this help you? It cuts the bull shit out of the planning confusion and brings you clarity. When it comes to styling, I believe in modern & timeless elements.
Let’s talk about design, and what that means for you. First, screw Pinterest! Yes, I said it. When you look at Pinterest, it should be for inspiration, not to copy. Why would you want to copy another wedding of another couple that has already done that specific design?! As a couple, you are unique, and that should be expressed through the elements at your wedding. We will work together & dig deep into your relationship to find those quirks that make you, you!
Bridezilla Events has been lucky to plan and design at various venues throughout Southern California but some of our favorites are located in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Temecula, Malibu, & the Central Coast.
We are currently preferred vendors at: South Coast Winery Resort & Spa in Temecula, King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas, The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens in Palm Desert, Ayres Hotel in Costa Mesa, Frank Sinatra Twin Palms Estate in Palm Springs, and The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in Rancho Santa Fe.
Venues we have previously worked at: Greystone Mansion, The 1909, Padua Hills Theatre, Colony House, Carondelet House, Monte de Oro Winery, Ethereal Open Air Resort, Cal Aero Events, Lake Arrowhead Resort, Castle Green, The Casino San Clemente, The Grove of Redlands, Noor Pasadena, and more.
Have you met gabi?
Welcome to Bridezilla Events. I’m Gabi the owner, lead planner & floral designer behind Bridezilla Events. I know your struggles and planning woes, and I am here to help. I care about your experience through the process, that’s why I break down the planning + design into phases that are manageable for your busy life.
I’m a wine & cheese snob with too many coffee cups from Anthropologie. When I have time off, you’ll find me scoping out a new cafe or restaurant + trying the most unique cocktails. I would describe myself as eclectic in terms of design but look to you as the couple to bring your own spin on the wedding details (we will do this together).
A little more about me..
I have 3 tattoos (one of which is a half-sleeve)
I’m a sucker for a penicillin, spicy margarita, or stout (beer)
I’m a dog mom of two, Sadie (border collie) + Eevie (boxer) - both rescued!
My favorite type of wine is Malbec
what we offer
As a boutique wedding planning + floral design company we want to create a process that makes sense to you and free of confusion. Due to our philosophy of giving you the best experience, we only take a limited number of clients per month/year. We are currently booking 2020 weddings. Complete the form below to find out what services can bring you clarity in your planning process & busy life.
Wedding Planning & Design (full-service)
Not sure what Full Service Wedding Planning means? It’s okay, it’s totally normal and I swear this is the only wedding industry term I will use with you! Wedding Planning is NOT the same as a “day-of coordinator”. Hiring a wedding planner is your first stop in the wedding planning process, before booking a venue or landing on a date. The timeline of this service is 1.5 years - 8 months prior to the wedding date. With your full-time work schedules, hiring a wedding planner will make you enjoy your engagement instead of encountering countless headaches or feeling completely frustrated + confused. Gone are the days of Instagram scrolling through THOUSANDS (yes, thousands) of wedding vendors. Having a planner is an asset, and like a coach on your team. You are new to this wedding planning thing, so having someone with a strategy to conquer the tasks will make your experience a breeze, and fun!
Full-Service Floral Design (starts at $3,500)
Full Service Floral Design? What’s this?? I just need some bouquets, an arch, and centerpieces. True, but did you realize that the florals are actually the piece that brings cohesion throughout your wedding. When you are scoping Pinterest for ideas, what’s the one thing they all have in common — florals.As your floral designer we will work with you to bring your color palette, aesthetic, design style, & key elements into a cohesive design that matches your ultimate vision.
A La Carte Floral Design (personal florals only, $400 minimum order)
You may be thinking making your centerpieces with your bridal party or having Aunt Hilda create your wedding florals will be fun…..and it might be (but it’s rare). However, in that rare occasion, we work with couples that are on a budget and only need their personal florals done by a professional on their wedding day. This is the perfect option for you. Did you know your bridal bouquet or boutonniere will be one of the MOST photographed elements on the day?? No? Well now you know, so wouldn’t you want those pictures to be amazing even if you have non-traditional or DIY centerpieces? I would hate for you to go through the process of purchasing, processing, wiring, & spending hours in creating for the photos to reflect uneven stems, unbalanced structure, browned flowers, & much much more. I’m here to help, and we have a really easy process for you to make this happen. Just fill out the form below!
