"We are forever grateful for her!"

If you want to hire someone who has outstanding experience and truly wants her couples to have a memorable wedding- this is your woman.

Barbara helped us stay organized and did amazing job coordinating/communicating with our vendors. Not only is she professional but she always takes the time to listen to your worries and concerns. She truly has a gift of making couples feel secure and she always reassured us that everything will work out. Despite all of the hiccups leading to our wedding, our wedding reception was amazing. We were able to truly enjoy the day and it was because of Barbara. Everything went so smoothly and us and our families were able to enjoy our ceremony and reception. She’s amazing.We are so grateful for the series of events that happened because they brought us to Barbara and we had a wedding that exceeded our expectations and was even better than we had originally planned.

I cannot express our sincere gratitude for Barbara and we are forever grateful for her!

"Highly, highly, highly recommended"

Barbara is amazing!!

She is very organized, was always available when needed, and is flexible/supportive to make every couple's vision real! She is so friendly and really a pleasure to work with. She always kept us on our projected planning timeline. We never lost track of payment plans or had trouble with contracts because Barbara was always there to offer advice and had organized this for us. If an issue did arise, Barbara was quick to have it taken care of. Barbara has a website portal where she keeps everything for the couple including budget, contracts, timeline, checklist, etc. and she even created our wedding website for us, navigated RSVPs, coordinated stationary design/ordering, and many, many more tasks where she went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. She wears many hats as she even created and provided our backdrop for us to meet our wedding vision. I spoke with a bride who had a different planner and she noticed how dedicated and interactive Barbara was compared to her own. Everyone had an amazing time and I am still getting complements and stories about how amazing our day was, even a month later!

Highly, highly, highly recommend Bweddings for all your planning needs!

"A phenomenal job!"

Barbara stepped in for our day of coordinator as she was having a baby and was absolutely incredible.

It may be even harder to step into the role when relationships have already been formed, discussions had, and plans made. Barbara joined the team truly seamlessly and helped us pull off our dream wedding, never missing a detail or important step.

She was an absolute joy to work with and did a phenomenal job!

"Professionalism and grace"

Barbara and her team handled every part of our wedding with professionalism and grace.

She made sure I didn't miss any details when we had to reschedule due to COVID, and went well above and beyond to ensure our day went soothly and allowed me to focus on enjoying the event. Barbara is wonderful to work with and I am immensely grateful that she was part of my planning process. I can't imagine a more professional, organized planner and I encourage anyone considering hiring a planner or coordinator to go with Barbara.

She's absolutely incredible and you won't regret it.

"We will miss her!"

We are so happy with our decision to work with Bweddings for our wedding! Barbara is an absolute gem! She was able to handle so many tasks for us and always kept a positive attitude. She frequently checked-in and offered to help with other tasks as well. This is so important for someone like me because I have a hard time asking for help and hate burdening people. She is able to deliver her opinion in a professional and polite manner without ever being pushy. She is organized and was always guiding us along. She is amazing at what she does! We felt very well taken care of the day of our wedding by the Bweddings team.

We absolutely loved working with Barbara and will miss her!!

"Thank you!"

Barbara was on top of everything from the moment she arrived - she helped me (the groom) with any last minute expected problems or even just my lack of preparedness, and most importantly kept the bride totally relaxed and totally unexposed to any stress or issues at all.

Our day came together perfectly and it absolutely would not have without Barbara - thank you!!!

"We are very grateful!"

My wife and I agree -- working with Barbara and the Bweddings team was the best decision we made for our wedding.

Barbara was communicative in the weeks leading up to the wedding to understand exactly what our vision was, provided helpful suggestions for tweaking things, and then on the day of took care of the operations so we could focus elsewhere. She went above and beyond to accommodate all of our asks, even some that I imagine aren't standard but whose little details made our wedding uniquely ours. We particularly appreciated that due to some special circumstances (including us living in a different state than where Barbara and the wedding were) there were some things we couldn't plan for and would have to make calls on the day of. Barbara made decisions about the details on the day of, incorporating our vision without needing to ask us for guidance (we were busy with lots of other things!) and it's this sort of initiative that sets Bweddings apart from the rest.

Thank you again -- we're very grateful!

"The calm in the storm"

Barbara was amazing.

She was patient, kind, helpful, friendly and professional. She had a keen eye for the decor and as well as all other details. She has excellent taste. She was able to quickly readjust things the day of when anything went wrong all with great success and a calm pleasant manner. She was the calm in the storm of everyone’s little panics and anxieties. She saw to it that things ran smoothly from the background leaving us free to enjoy the day.

I would highly recommend her for any event planning or day off services.


"10/10, excellent"

I interviewed about 5 different wedding planners to help my fiancé and I with our wedding, Barbara blew them all away - she is kind, punctual, and very professional.

If you need someone who is tactful and thorough, you should hire her! Even through the pandemic she checks in regularly, even when, arguably, there’s not much planning to do.

There’s a reason she has so many great reviews - she and her team are 10/10, excellent.

Barbara did a phenomenal job planning our wedding and was extremely valuable to me on the day.

I don't know what I would have done without her. First and foremost, Barbara found us our perfect wedding venue Armour House in Lake Forest, IL. She did extensive research and found us the perfect place that suited both of our British backgrounds; it was the perfect stately home setting with picturesque gardens. Barbara came with us to view the venue and helped negotiate a great price that was well within our budget. Leading up the wedding, Barbara helped me pick out my color theme, florist, invitations and was extremely helpful in putting our wedding website together. On the wedding day itself, Barbara was amazing. She was on top of everything and made sure the day went to plan. In addition to her main duties, Barbara helped with the table planning, reception room decor, photos (taking quite a few good photos earlier in the day as our photographer was late) and many many other elements. Barbara was a life saver on many occasions even performing a quick fix to my dress before the 1st dance (thanks Barbara!).

Overall we were extremely satisfied with the planning service and professionalism that Barbara provided and would not hesitate to recommend her to any couple getting married.
