Success Stories

Meet The Team

Mimi Perez

Owner/Lead Planner

Mimi is the owner and lead planner. She lives for all things weddings! During her downtime you will find her baking, crafting or perusing her favorite lifestyle blogs and magazines. She has acquired the endearing title of “The Latina Martha Stewart” from those that know her best. She is a self-proclaimed organizing junkie and can spend embarrassing amounts of time combing through The Container Store and Office Depot! She is a graduate of Howard University and UMUC. She has been helping family members and friends plan weddings and events for as long as she can remember. Finally in 2012 she took a leap of faith and started A Bride’s BFF based on a role she had played many times (being the bride’s best friend)! She currently live in Maryland with her daughter and long-time boyfriend (who will hopefully ahhhem…soon pop the question).
