Love from Real Couples


Reviews and feedback are important to us as we want you to know what our clients are saying about us.

"They took care of EVERYTHING!!!"

I am the MOB and we had my daughter’s wedding last month. We knew from the get go that I was doing the decor and flowers, but wanted to be just the MOB the day of. We searched for a planner that would meet this request and are so happy to have decided on Barbara and her team. After our first interview with Barbara, we were impressed with her professionalism and understanding of what we were looking for.

The whole process was very smooth, from personalizing the contract to our specific needs to the communication during the months leading to the event. What was amazing though was what happened the day of.  Not only did they carry our decor vision down to the dot, but went the extra mile with decoration and details adding their own touch with great taste and elegance.

They made sure that the Bride and groom were well taken care of. I was so surprised at how smooth everything went, no stress, timeline was followed and event was a success. The team that stayed until the end of the party moved around like ninjas! Before I knew it they had packed everything and taken care of all of the vendors.

Best money spent! Highly recommended.

"It was unbelievable and a great surprise."

Barbara, I don’t have words to explain how happy and grateful I am for all the work you did. It was unbelievable and a great surprise. All the decoration was stunning and all the guests were in shock of how beautiful it was. Thank you for being part of the best day of my life! And thank you for the gift!

"They eased our anxiety during the whole process and made the months leading up to the wedding enjoyable!"

When we started planning our wedding, we weren't sure if we would need a wedding planner...but my wife and I can both say that bringing on Barbara and the Bweddings team was one of the best decisions we made. They eased our anxiety during the whole process and made the 3 months leading up to the wedding enjoyable. Most importantly, the week of and day of our wedding were better than we could have imagined because we didn't have to worry about any of the small details, they had it handled. They took all of the small to-do's off of our plate like contacting each vendor, organizing our rehearsal, creating a crazy in-depth timeline and even making sure the reception space was decorated perfectly. We're so grateful we found Bweddings and would recommend them to any couple without hesitation. Thanks Barbara !!

"It was such a relief to have someone not only to run ideas by, but who understood my vision and worked around the clock to make it happen."

I honestly thought I did not need a wedding planner but thank God I hired one! Having Barbra's expertise knowledge went a long way in making my dream day come true. It was s such a relief to have someone not only to run ideas by, but who understood my vision and worked around the clock to make it happen. My wedding day was such a dream because Barbra and her team ensured that all I received that day was pure perfection. If you are looking for a wedding planner who will go above and beyond, then you shouldn't look any further. Most importantly I was surprised how amazing her prices were for the services!

"A weight was lifted off my shoulder!"

When Barbara started as a coordinator 12 weeks out from the wedding date it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.

She coordinated the timeline and responsibilities with all our vendors, did a walk through with us at the wedding venue, and distributed all of the tips on the day of. I added on extra coverage for one of her assistants to gather all the personal items at the end of the night and put them in our hotel room, which I would 100% recommend; it allowed all our family to relax and enjoy the party instead of having to worry about a late-night responsibility.

Thank you Barbara!!

"We had such a wonderful experience"

We had an amazing experience with Barbara as our lead wedding planner. From day one she was extremely helpful and always coming up with helpful solutions for each step of the wedding process.

Our wedding was also delayed by 10 months, which means that we worked with Barbara for almost two years. When things became stressful due to COVID she used her wedding industry expertise to make sure that everything went smoothly with our wedding.

My wife and I would very highly recommend Barbara to any newly engaged couple to use as their Chicago wedding planner. We had such a wonderful experience with her and we know she would do the same for other couples!

"Our day went absolutely perfectly!"

Barbara and Chrissy were absolutely fantastic to work with.

We hired another day-of-coordinator originally, but that relationship fell through just 8 weeks before our wedding. We frantically reached out to Barbara and from the very first email (received within 30 minutes of our original email, on a Saturday) we knew she would have everything under control. And she did!

They squeezed us into their already-packed schedules, but we would never have known they had any other clients in how responsive and organized they were. Both Barbara and Chrissy always knew the right questions to ask and kept all our vendors clear, even in the chaos of a Covid-era wedding.

Our day went absolutely perfectly. Don't hesitate to hire Bweddings as your Chicago Wedding Planner!

"We are so thankful for everything Bweddings did for us!"

We are so thankful for everything Bweddings did for us as our wedding day-of coordinator.

They were very helpful in the lead-up to the wedding, and had a lot of suggestions that we would not have thought of ourselves. They reviewed vendor contracts to ensure that everything was fulfilled and squared away. Bweddings' online tool was very helpful - we loved being able to build a comprehensive timeline that made everything run more smoothly.

They attended our rehearsal dinner and helped give our wedding party a very helpful rundown of the wedding day events. On our wedding day itself, it was such a relief to have them at our venue coordinating deliveries, set-ups and vendors.

We did not want to have to worry about logistics on our special day and it was so helpful to know that Bweddings had everything handled for us. If you are looking for excellent coordinators who will help make your wedding even more special, we certainly recommend Bweddings!

"Barbara's team sets a gold star standard bar in the wedding planning industry."

With a short timeline to plan our wedding reception after a destination elopement, we looked to her for an ala carte, "the day of planning" services. She went over and beyond from helping with vendor selections, web site creation, invitations tracking and all the other little details we didn't think of that are easily overlooked.

Her beautiful, creative design sense also helped us put together a perfect vibe for the venue for our memorable, special day. We feel very blessed to have found her to help us navigate through the planning stage leading up to our big day.

She was spot on when she told us in the beginning “ All you have to do is show up and have fun! “ That’s exactly what happened, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Thank you, Barbara, at Bweddings and her hard-working team who truly cares!
