On January 26th, 2012 the first New England VentureX Competition was held. Over 250 people gathered at the abiHub in Manchester, NH to listen to the 10 semi-finalists and cast their votes for the start-ups that excited them. My Bridal Dream, LLC was fortunate to be one of the 10 companies selected out of 100 applications from 8 states. We spent the first 90 minutes pitching our company to the stream of individuals traveling room to room to get the scoop. Cocktails in hand, the crowd was buzzing with the spirit that this entrepreneurial display was creating.
Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, business professionals, friends and families of the 10 companies moved into an old restaurant space to enjoy some h’odouvres and hear the results. The top 3 companies with the most votes would move onto the Q & A portion of the competition. MyBridalDream.com was announced, and our hearts were touched with the obvious and loud display of support. We had made it. We would be called in front of the crowd to answer questions from the panel of judges.
Although we didn’t win, this experience was educational, fun and truly inspiring. We would like to congratulate Mosaic Archive for their victory and thank Wasabi Ventures and the abiHub crew for making this happen. We owe a debt of gratitude to the individuals that came out in the snow to support us.In the Spotlight, Uncategorized, Why MyBridalDream Is So Unique | No comment

Thanks for visiting us. We would like to intro with a short history of why we built this wedding service to assist with wedding planning. First Co-Founder Allison Nezballa realized there was a need for a unique tool to help find bridal vendors when she helped other brides with their wedding planning. Sure, she could use search engines and get generic lists from other wedding sites, but so much work remained and the lists were limited. How much did the vendor cost, what was their service area, did they have what she was looking for? There had to be more options for local vendors in New Hampshire.Then in 2010, she met Tia Lori Bergeron and discussed the idea of a website that would present potential matches to brides based on search criteria. Together, they funded and collaborated the launch of www.mybridaldream.com.
MyBridalDream.com matches brides and vendors for NH weddings using her search criteria to find compatible relationships in order to form her perfect dream team. Our site is free to brides and vendors become members for a low annual fee. Our members include reception sites, wedding transportation, jewelry, bridal apparel, cakes, invitations, spa & beauty, caterers, rental items, djs and wedding entertainment, florists and things you haven’t thought of.
The mission of My Bridal Dream, LLC is to provide a unique tool for brides to form their Bridal Dream Team; and empower vendors with a new affordable marketing opportunity by creating a match making scenario driven by specific search criteria.
