A Bride’s Mafia

Ok, I know images of The Sopranos play in your mind when you hear the word “mafia.” But when you think about it, a mafia is really just a group of connected people who take care of each other. That’s what my friend Nidhi Bedi (recently featured here in Cincinnati Profile for being single & successful!) had in mind when she launched “A Bride’s Mafia.”

It all started when she and a few family members opened the super successful Elements Event Centre in Sharonville four years ago. I’ve done a event there and they do a lot of my Cincy Chic rentals/catering, so that’s how I got to know her. Nidhi helped to grow the business with things like their new limo division. Then, people started asking if she would plan their weddings.

That’s when she started A Bride’s Concierge, which is now A Bride’s Mafia (ABM). Nidhi is making it into a huge one-stop-shop wedding gallery, which is perfect because it’s centrally located in the city at 266 East Sharon Road, Glendale, OH 45246.

The idea is to take the pressure and stress of planning a wedding off the bride with the help of the ABM partners. These partners are hand-selected by Nidhi to be a part of their exclusive group of trusted vendors in the industry. ABM brides get a membership card, which gives them access to special discounts with ABM vendors, as well as complimentary admission to Bride Socials and Galas (aka you’re officially “connected” if you’re an ABM member)!

Feel free to contact Nidhi (she’s super nice and great to work with!) at to set up a complimentary consultation and see if you’d like to “join the mafia”!

Humanitarian League Pamper Party

My friend Jan Malley, founder of the Little Red School House, is involved in The Humanitarian League Charity Foundation. It’s an awesome organization that improves the lives of children and companion animals.

Last September, I went to their “Diva Day,” which the league hosts every other year as their big fundraiser. It featured faux furs from Fabulous-Furs and clothing from White House Black Market, modeled by the Cincinnati Ben-Gal cheerleaders.

This year, The Humanitarian League Charity Foundation will be the beneficiary of our annual pet fashion show. It’ll be on Sept. 21 at Performance Lexus, so mark your calendar! More details to come soon, so make sure you’re subscribe at

So, the REAL reason why I’m blogging is because we’re having our first Humanitarian League Charity Foundation meeting of the year at Jan’s gorgeous house in Triple Crown, Union KY. She’s doing a dinner-and-drinks poolside garden party, and bringing in Saks to do makeup demos and touch-ups. It’s an amazing group of women, so it’s not only a great cause but also very good networking.

If you’d like to attend, it’ll be on Wednesday, May 16 at 6:30pm. Please email Jan at or call her at 859-384-1840 if you’d like to RSVP (she’ll give you her address when you contact her).
