  • I am so happy I found Desiree and A Bride's BFF! They truly allowed me and my husband to enjoy our wedding day knowing that the details and set-ups were completely handled and under control. Desiree is such a professional with so much knowledge about weddings and vendor details and protocol. She helped to organize our day and the details of the day in a way that we could never have done on our own. I literally had no worries on my wedding day (and that is a great feat since I am such a type A and hands-on person), because I had such confidence in Desiree executing our wedding vision. From my initial call with Mimi all the way through the day of coordination by Desiree and Kelly, it was a true pleasure working with this team and I am grateful I had them to guide me during the wedding planning process and day of execution. I would recommend this company three times over. If you are hesitating with the idea of hiring a day of coordinator, just DO IT. It is well worth the money (and A B... Read more

    Danielle, Thank you for your kind words. You and Doug were so lovely to work with and all of the little details you meticulously planned made it so memorable. Truly one of our favorite events! Wishing the two of you many years filled with love and joy!

  • This review is for the interview process. A friend recommended A Bride's BFF after having a great experience with them at her wedding, and I was very impressed with our initial conversations. I was very impressed with Mimi's promptness, clarity, and thoroughness in our initial conversations, and her rates were very reasonable. While I chose to go with a vendor who knew my venue more intimately, I have no doubt that any bride would be in great hands with A Bride's BFF!

    Wow! Thank you Laura for leaving this review. Even though we couldn't be a part of your special day, I'm so happy you found someone who is the right fit. Wishing you nothing but the best during your planning journey and on your wedding day. I know it will be amazing!

  • Absolutely would recommend their 30-day out/day of services. From the first phone call Mimi put my mind at ease that all details would be taken care of, and when Nageen stepped in 30 days I couldn’t have felt more thankful for their services. We had to replan our wedding entirely due to COVID with a new date, new vendors and venue, and Nageen helped us roll with the punches and get a game plan together for the big day. Especially in the week before the wedding, knowing that she was confirming every detail with our vendors was a huge relief and allowed me to enjoy time with family in town. She attended the rehearsal and took care of all the cues for walking, music, etc. The day-of she made sure everything was set before guests arrived and checked in throughout the evening to make sure we were ready for the next thing. I had some anxious nerves during dinner and she couldn’t have made me feel more at ease and helped us Seamlessly rearrange the dances/toasts in the timeline so I could... Read more

  • We had the best experience with A Bride’s BFF! We had Kelly as our wedding coordinator and she was the most professional, organized, caring, skilled and attentive wedding coordinator we could have ever asked for! She kept constant communication with my fiancé and I, always made us feel valued and important, and listened to any concerns we had throughout our wedding process. She communicated so well with the vendors and did a superb job when it came to looking over our vendor contracts and letting us know when we oversaw something. I called her our fairy godmother several times, as she literally made our wedding fairytale perfect! We seriously would have not been able to pull this wedding off without Kelly! A Bride’s BFF, thank you so much for having Kelly as our wedding coordinator. She is exactly the type of person every bride and groom needs by their side! Future couples, look no further... A Bride’s BFF is the perfect choice to help you during your wedding planning!

  • We are so grateful that we hired Kelly and A Bride's BFF team for our wedding. The month-of we worked with Kelly and Mimi, the owner surprised us as Kelly's assistant the day of. Kelly's attention to detail, kindness and appropriate assertiveness with our vendors was much appreciated and made for a seamless and beautiful event. My partner and I are both type-A people and were truly relaxed the day of our wedding because we were confident in Kelly's support!

  • Word’s cannot express our gratitude for Nageen, our Month of Coordinator. From the moment we met Nageen, we knew we were in good hands. Her calm nature, attention to detail and positive demeanor put us at ease. She was there at any time of the day/night to answer questions, make notes, communicate with vendors, and/or lend a hand. Because of Nageen, our wedding was flawless. We stayed on schedule the whole night, achieved every goal we set, and were able to focus on our guests and the party! I can’t give her a more glowing recommendation!!!!

  • I can't believe how much attention to detail and care I received from A Bride's BFF. I hired a coordinator for the day of and she and her helper were so amazing. The coordinator I was assigned is Kelly Jarvis. Even after the wedding, I had some guests/bridesmaids point out how attentive and kind/patient Kelly was the entire time. Our ceremony started late, and instead of leaving guests hanging, Kelly made sure they knew what was going on and checked up on me at the bridal suite to make sure I was okay which I really appreciated. There were some other things that just did not go right at the wedding due to weather or other unavoidable circumstances, but guests didn't even notice because Kelly kept everything going smoothly. I'm not the type of person that goes around just settling for less and leaving 5 star reviews for services that were sub par, so when I say this service was 5/5, I really mean that it was 5/5. Thank you so much again for all of your hard work and keeping things p... Read more

  • Having a day-of coordinator was a must for us, and Bride's BFF absolutely delivered. We could tell it was a well-run, professional and detail-oriented operation from our initial conversations with Mimi. Desiree was our month-of coordinator, assisted by Nageen on the day, and they were fabulous. Desiree has a very calm and unflappable presence, along with being experienced, responsive and organized. I am used to being on the ground level with running events and am also pretty type-A but I was honestly able to totally relax and enjoy the day without stressing, and from my perspective, everything went perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend having a coordinator for the day, and no need to look further than A Bride's BFF!

  • I can't even find the words to express how happy I am to have stumbled upon A Bride's BFF during a random, online search a few months before my wedding. Mimi was a complete GODSEND. Her professionalism is unsurpassed, and her responsiveness truly borders on the ridiculous (it's as if she never sleeps or takes a break!). I hired her about 8 months prior to our wedding as I quickly realized that I had no idea where to even start planning. She not only helped us to stay on top of our timeline and budget, she helped me to find and select almost every vendor, and helped to make my dreams for a unique, relaxed, fun, bohemian, and stylish wedding (yes - I wanted ALL those things, and had NO IDEA how to achieve them) come to life. It was like having a best friend to brainstorm with - one who has VAST experience and the patience of a priest. My husband and I have spent the past 3 weeks reliving every moment of our wedding, and our friends and family are still talking about it - saying tha... Read more

  • A Bride's BFF was an absolute lifesaver! Kelly did a fantastic job managing all the vendors and guests and ensured our wedding reception went smoothly. I was able to have fun and enjoy myself at our reception, as I knew I was in good hands with Kelly and A Bride's BFF. Thank you again!

  • It was a pleasure working with Kelly Jarvis and A Bride's BFF as our month of coordinator. She was super organized and made sure we had all the details down before the big day, so we could actually be in the moment and enjoy the day. We got many comments about how smoothly the whole day went! Really appreciated that she also made sure we had time to eat during the reception :)

    Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure working with you and your family. I wish you both many years of happiness!

  • I am so glad that I chose A Bride's BFF for month-of coordination and worked with Amanda as our coordinator. I was very impressed with Amanda from the start. Prior to our first meeting with her at our venue, I had written her an email that said "please don't let me forget to ask you xyz." Then, when we met with her, she followed up about xyz. My husband and I had a very specific vision for our wedding - the way we wanted things to look, feel, taste, sound -- and Amanda helped us make that vision a reality. We also had a bunch of last minute changes and fire-drills in the week leading up to the wedding, and Amanda was very responsive and took care of everything. I'm type-A, but I truly trusted Amanda and was able to hand over to her leading up to the wedding, throughout the wedding day, and even after so my husband and I could enjoy our day. Amanda delivered, and then some!

  • Our experience with A Bride’s BFF was not very good (to say the least). We booked a day-of wedding coordinator. We felt we needed one since our ceremony was at one venue and our reception was at a different venue. First of all, it was very difficult to coordinate a time to meet with our assigned wedding planner; so much in fact, that our ceremony venue walk-through was less than 2 weeks before our wedding and we did not EVER have a reception venue walk-through due to the difficulty in coordination. This was mostly attributed to the fact that she did not respond to our list of proposed dates and times for meeting until those dates/times had elapsed or were about to elapse (and we then had planned other wedding related meetings since she had not responded). We completed and sent over the wedding details sheet for the planner a month before our wedding as suggested; yet, when we met with our planner over 2 wks later, it was as if she had not reviewed any of it. We also created a ma... Read more

  • Nageen, my day-of coordinator did an amazing job with my wedding. She was great during the planning portion and especially amazing the day of. We had a situation with my cake where the bakery forgot to make it, and Nageen handled the situation perfectly. When I heard about what was going on, Nageen had already solved the problem and I didn’t have to worry. The decorations were also all placed exactly how I had asked her and everything was packed up neatly at the end of the night. Thank you Nageen and A Bride’s BFF!

    Thank you so much for the kind words Andrea & Dimitri! Your wedding was so much fun and you two were a pleasure to work with. We wish you at a wonderful marriage full of joy!
