What are clients saying about Preoccupied Bride?
“Maya went above and beyond on our big day! She is a lovely person and an incredible coordinator. If you are planning a wedding, hiring Maya needs to be the first thing on your to-do list!” -Yasmine K. / Burr Ridge, IL
“When my husband and I were looking for a planner, we wanted someone who would help us navigate our way through the wedding process while still giving us the autonomy to choose our vendors. Maya was precisely what we were looking for in a planner. She provided a general direction for us and gave us a very helpful planning timeline to help keep us on track. She also frequently checked up on us and was super patient with our questions in the months leading up to the wedding. Whenever we needed vendor recommendations, Maya always gave us many options and advice on what to look for when choosing a vendor. I am so thankful for her finding one of my most important vendors—the seamstress. I ordered my dress late and only had a month to get alterations done before the wedding. Maya found a last-minute seamstress who was very experienced, inexpensive, and a joy to work with. The month before our wedding, Maya took over, and we were so grateful because we had no idea about the logistical side of the wedding. She coordinated everything between our vendors and made an extremely detailed day-of timeline. Then, on the big day, Maya made sure that everything ran smoothly. Thanks to her, our day was perfect. From contacting and choosing vendors, walking through at the rehearsal, and making sure everything was on schedule on the day of the wedding, Maya did an excellent job of handling all aspects of our wedding, and she was so sweet and personable, too. I cannot recommend her enough!” -Rachel M. / Chicago, IL

There’s no way our wedding day would have gone so smoothly without her.” -Maggie G. / Chicago, IL
“After rescheduling 3 times due to covid restrictions, our stress levels were at an all time high. We are so grateful for Maya as she took care of everything for our big day! From creating the timeline, contacting vendors and fine tuning all the small details, we cannot thank her enough for being so responsive, helpful and kind! She made sure our wedding day ran smoothly! We did not initially even think we needed a wedding coordinator but cannot imagine doing it without Maya! Trust me when I say YOU NEED HER!” -Kara C. / Chicago, IL
“Maya was a dream to work with! She provided so much guidance for us during the planning process and on the day of the wedding, we trusted her to do what she does best and man, did she deliver!

We would recommend Maya to anyone planning a wedding, big or small!” -Christina R. / Chicago, IL

From the beginning, she kept us on track with a detailed checklist and timeline, making the whole process feel a lot more manageable. During the planning process, we looked to Maya for recommendations around vendors and various other details, and she always had insightful and helpful feedback. In the few weeks before the wedding, Maya kept everything super stress free by coordinating details with all the vendors and putting together a detailed timeline for the wedding party and vendors to reference. Day of, we didn’t have to worry about anything, and were able to thoroughly enjoy the entire experience. Everything from directing guests to setup was taken care of, and things couldn’t have gone better! Maya is amazing and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome wedding planner.

I truly enjoyed working with her, and appreciate all the hard work she put into the little details with the vendors, including hair and makeup, photographers, catering, the florist and the venue.

“Maya was the best investment we made during our wedding! We spoke to several planners before we met with Maya, but I remember right after our first zoom call, we knew Maya was the best planner for us. She is friendly, very approachable and easy to communicate with. She was on top of things right from the beginning. She was very dedicated towards our wedding, always making sure things get done in a timely fashion. There were months when my husband and I had busy schedules and could not manage things, but she made sure everything was taken care of. Like most weddings during COVID, our wedding too had many unpredictable events, but Maya dealt with everything in a calm manner. She coordinated with all the vendors as well the venue and took care of everything. Any problem that would come up, Maya had realistic solutions for, which helped my husband and I stay calm during the wedding process. During the wedding week, Maya made it as stress free as possible . During the rehearsal, she took the time to get to know the families and familiarize herself with the wedding party, which made coordinating things during the wedding day extremely smooth. On the wedding day, neither me nor my husband had to worry about any of the details, Maya took care of everything so we could just focus on us and enjoy our special day. Everything went perfectly. To anyone who is having doubts about hiring a wedding planner, do it! Maya is the absolute best and she will make sure you have the wedding of your dreams and that you enjoy your special day!” -Jessica J. / Skokie, IL

From the moment I spoke with her I knew that she was the perfect person to help me execute our dream wedding. She is extremely detail-oriented, organized, and a kind hearted individual. She was very prompt in answering my emails within hours and she gave us the best vendor recommendations. She read through all our contracts and made sure all the fine details were taken care of. During our initial details meeting, she asked insightful questions to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted for our day. She came up with an amazing timeline of events for the day of the wedding and distributed it to all of our vendors to ensure our day went off without a hitch!! Her and her amazing team ensured that our day was stress-free and absolutely perfect!! She even went above and beyond and helped with tasks that was not in her job description! But that is truly the person she is, she will always go above and beyond for her clients!! She was a joy to work with! I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for the best day of coordinator!

“Maya was the event coordinator at our wedding and she was awesome! She was ready to go from day one and had templates and schedules down to the very minute. She is very organized and professional which was a huge benefit for us because we were doing this wedding out of state. She helped us with reading through the fine details of contracts and making sure our wedding day was as stress-free as possible! We cannot thank her enough for her time, advice, and positive attitude that helped us stay on track. Thank you for putting out all our fires on the day of the wedding and going above and beyond with making sure everything went perfectly as much as possible.” -Alex O. / Portland, OR
“Hiring Maya (Preoccupied Bride) was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process! When I initially started planning, I didn’t think I was ‘the type of person who would hire a wedding planner.’ I wanted a small, grounded, sane, budget-friendly wedding. However, I don’t like party planning. Enter Maya. I spoke with a few different planners, and she was by far the most calm, grounded, real person I spoke with. When my anxiety would rise, Maya would promptly answer my emails and help me to calmly execute my vision. Having her take over communication with our vendors during the last month before the wedding was a life saver. She really did allow me to enjoy my day so much more than if my fiancé and I would have done it all on our own. She even went above and beyond to help us with a task that another vendor wanted to charge us several hundred dollars for. Our day went so smoothly—thanks Maya!” -Jess G. / Evanston, IL
“I was recommended Maya (Preoccupied Bride) by a friend and I am so glad we made the decision to book her as our Day of Coordinator. Maya did an amazing job listening to our vision and executing the wedding of our dreams. She is extremely organized and detailed. She really allows you to be hands-off with all the minute details with your vendors in the final weeks leading up to your wedding, which is beyond helpful. She is also honest and will be upfront with you about your ideas, which I truly appreciated planning such a big event. Maya gave such a sense of calmness heading into our wedding weekend knowing that she was in charge. We can’t thank or recommend her enough!” -Emma C. / Chicago, IL
“Maya (Preoccupied Bride) is a must-have for any wedding! We had a mutli-day, multi-event Hindu wedding and Maya and her team were behind the scenes ninjas who managed 15+ vendors and 300+ guests across two different venues. She is the epitome of calm and handles anything you throw at her. She is the only person who enjoys lists and timelines more than me and will keep everyone and everything moving smoothly. We danced the night away (both nights) because Maya handled all the logistics and vendors so we were never pulled away from the dance floor. She is 100% the reason my husband and I had a stress-free wedding.” -Purvi M. / Chicago, IL
“Hiring Maya (Preoccupied Bride) as our day of coordinator was the best decision my husband and I made during our wedding planning process. At first we were hesitant as we weren’t sure that a day of coordinator was a necessary expense when we were already spending so much on our wedding, but I sure am glad we hired her!! Maya saved me hours/days of work leading up to the wedding by coordinating & confirming all the day of details with my vendors. She produced an amazing day of timeline for me that allowed me to easily communicate all details to the bridal party. Then she and her assistants made sure the day of my wedding was executed flawlessly. My wedding day was 100% stress free thanks to Maya! Not only did her and her team do an amazing job but she is a pleasure to work with. She’s calm and has such a kind, friendly attitude. I can’t thank Maya and her team enough for ensuring my wedding day was perfect!!!” -Tiffany B. / Chicago, IL
“We hired Maya with a little more than 3-4 months to go. I am highly organized myself, but I also knew I would not be able to relax the week leading up to and on the day of the wedding if I could not hand things over to someone else. Since I am highly organized, my standards are very high, and Maya not only met but exceeded them. I was allowed to completely let go and enjoy the few days leading up to the wedding and the day of the wedding knowing we were in great hands! The day ran perfectly and Maya was a fun and calming presence to be around on our special day. We highly recommend her!” -Amy E. / Evanston, IL
“Hiring Maya as my wedding planner was the best decision I made in the entire planning process! I initially hired her for consulting hours, and she provided a ton of support. Since she was so helpful, I decided to book her for month of coordination as well. She is extremely organized, down to earth, and easy to work with. As you know, wedding planning can be a stressful process, and it’s great to have someone like Maya on your side. Thank you Maya for making our wedding an amazing day. We appreciate it so much!” -Sonia G. / Indianapolis, IN
“Maya was really easy to work with, very professional, and my wedding day went perfectly. She gently kept me on track handling details and magically showed up the day of the wedding every time I had a question or needed her. I used her for vendor recommendations and to be present the day of the event. I was hesitant to hire a planner, but in hindsight it was the best money I spent…total peace of mind! Highly recommend!” -Lisa D. / Glenview, IL
“Maya was an absolute blessing. From our first meeting onward, she was a true professional. She asked us all the right questions to understand our vision, needs and dreams and executed seamlessly. We were looking for a self-starter who would be comfortable on their own – running the show and making decisions and she was the epitome of that! She was ahead of the game, organized, offered advice when appropriate and was kind and calm the entire time. If you are looking for the best person to be the manager of what will be your favorite day ever, Maya is your go to. No questions asked.” -Maria M. / Chicago, IL
