The team at A Bride’s Mafia is helping future brides plan the wedding of their dreams at a one-stop-shop location. Keep reading as Cincy Chic chats with the newly formed collection of premium local wedding vendors to see how they collaborate so planning is a more convenient, chic and fun experience for area brides-to-be.

As the snow melts away, wedding season heats up. Future brides across the Tri-State will soon begin their heated hunt for everything to make their big day perfect.


But before you begin a mad dash of phone tag and scheduling visits, stop by A Bride’s Mafia to get all the help you need with planning your wedding.


A Bride’s Mafia was founded by Nidhi Bedi when she decided she wanted to establish a one-stop-shop for brides in Cincinnati. "I wanted to put together a group of vendors that were reputable, respected and delivered a service that was unmatched," she explains.


The goal of A Bride’s Mafia is to connect brides to the right vendor for them. With so many options, brides can often feel overwhelmed in their quest for wedding perfection. Bedi says, "it’s not about what you know, it’s about who you know," when it comes to the wedding industry.

Brides who look to A Bride’s Mafia receive complimentary consultations, exclusive deals and customized wedding timelines. Brides who choose A Bride’s Mafia and its vendors will be taken care of every step along the way of the planning process, according to Bedi.


"We bring everyone together under one roof offering you everything you need from the moment you get engaged to the time you walk down the aisle," she says.


What makes A Bride’s Mafia unique from other wedding planning businesses, according to Bedi, is their ability to produce unmatched service. From day one, she adds, A Bride’s Mafia does everything they can to guarantee perfection on the happiest day of a bride’s life.


"When I initially sit down with a bride, I try to get her vision and understand what she wants her wedding to be like," she explains. "Then I take her dreams and try to make them reality by teaming her up with the right vendors."


The "members only" services of A Bride’s Mafia requires an application process for the hand picked vendors. Bedi says any vendors recommended will both meet and exceed the expectations of A Bride’s Mafia.


With so many vendors to choose from, styles and budgets of all shapes and sizes, Bedi says she can always find a perfect match. In addition, bride’s have the opportunity to visit the vendors of A Bride’s Mafia with their two annual bridal shows, as well as a surprise event every summer.


One of the annual events is the Afterhours Bridal Show. The team adds an unusual twist to the typical bridal show where brides are introduced to the finest wedding vendors in Cincinnati in a cocktail event setting, versus a typical wedding expo format.


When describing the Afterhours Bridal Shows, Bedi says, "imagine a cocktail party with friends while checking out the latest fashion trends and getting complimentary hair and makeup consultations at unique venues."


Bedi and the team at A Bride’s Mafia recently wrapped up their ninth bridal show. She also said more than 1,200 people have now filled the venues of every show the business has done. Speaking the upcoming summer surprise event hosted by A Bride’s Mafia’s, Bedi was able to share some of the details: "I am extremely excited to announce our ‘Battle of the Bands 2013’ summer event at Moonlight Gardens on August 11," she says.


The event will be something Cincinnatians won’t soon forget. Six wedding bands will get together for a night of weddings, fun, vendors, events, entertainment and family.
