  • Joanne was wonderful in all aspects of helping us with our daughter's out of state wedding. She zeroed in on the best vendors and called and called and called getting appointments set up for us, confirming all the details and making sure everything was ready to hand things off for our day of coordinator on-site, making for a seamless transition. We really liked how she had things "paced" throughout the planning process so we never felt overwhelmed with decisions or tasks. She was amazing at thinking of little details we had not considered that really added special touches to the day and to the decor. Finally, her enthusiasm and energy was always a great help in conquering a seemingly way too long to-do list! We highly recommend Joanne!

  • We are so happy we decided to have Joanne of Best Day Ever help with our wedding! We went with the Day of Coordination package. We met with Joanne a couple of times and she was able to take care of everything else over email which was very helpful for us! She created extremely detailed timelines for our family and bridal party and coordinated the vendor timelines as well. This was tremendously helpful and took so much stress off our plate! She has a great deal of expertise regarding all things wedding related and was very generous with helping us figure things out!! On the day of the wedding she was amazing and it was so nice knowing that she was there to make sure everyone was where they needed to be and we were moving along with our schedules. We are so thankful to Joanne for all of the hard work and time she put into making our wedding day run so smoothly! We highly recommend her and Best Day Ever!

  • We were so happy with Best Day Ever Weddings! Joanne was very helpful through out the wedding planning process. She was so knowledgable and after every meeting we had with her, we felt better about everything we had planned. Her day of schedule was incredibly accurate, too! As for the day of, Andrea was our day of coordinator and we thought she did an awesome job. It was SO nice knowing someone was there to take care of all of the unexpected things throughout the day. It definitely eased all of our minds knowing she was there taking care of all the little stuff! Thanks so much, Joanne and Andrea!

  • Joanne was invaluable through out the whole wedding celebration planning process with our son and his new bride. We hired Joanne and Best Day Ever to assist us with the whole event, right from the first days, including the “day of.” It was so great to have someone help with so many choices and Joanne had great recommendations that suited our son’s and new bride’s tastes and the event perfectly. She was so organized and helped the happy couple stay on track with the selections, thinking of things they hadn’t. The day turned out beautifully, just as my new daughter-in-law had imagined. As mother of the groom, I was also able to completely relax for the big day and enjoy family, friends, and celebrate with the couple. Thank you, Joanne! Couldn’t have pulled it off without you!

  • Many Thanks to Joanne for her attention to detail that made my daughters wedding day a success. She had every minute mapped out and everyone know where and when they needed to be. This day of planner is very much needed and saved the parents from a lot of added stress knowing everything was handled. I Highly recommend Joanne Messerly- Best Day Ever Wedding services! Thanks again Joanne!

  • It was a pleasure to work with Joanne! She was our day-of coordinator, but also helped guide us early on and support us as we made decisions along the way. Joanne had a lot of creative ideas for how to make our conceptual musings into concrete plans, and for helping us tie together some of the loose ends. She handled the day-of curve-balls with grace and composure, and it played a huge role in letting us (and our parents) focus on enjoying the event. Thanks Joanne!

  • Joanne was amazing!! I can honesty say that I could not have planned my wedding without her. For the first half of the planning process I was living out of state and was unable to fly back and book vendors. However, her recommendations were spot on and there was no need for me to. She is also so orangized and thorough. We had a relatively short engagement (7 months) but I did not feel stressed during the planning process because she was always making sure we were on track with things. On the day of the wedding she was awesome! Not only was she making sure we were sticking to the timeline but she also, almost single handedly, decorated the entire venue. Since we were unable to get into the venue until 12pm with the ceremony starting at 4:30pm so I was a little worried it all wouldn’t get done. But I should have known better! She made it look beautiful and the whole day went off without a hitch. If you’re debating on whether to hire a planner just do it and hire Joanne! It was the be... Read more

  • Working with Joanne was a great experience! For any MOB's out there wondering why you should send your $$ on a planner/coordinator, I will tell you that Joanne kept us ON budget and focused on what was important to us. She listened carefully to the bride and made sure that we stayed true to my daughter's vision. She Reviewed contracts, looked for ways to spend money, and even challenged us when we wanted to exceed the budget. We did go over, but did it knowing that it was important to us and that we made up for it in other areas. The BEST part was having Joanne there for the day of the wedding. Who knew there were so many details to keep track of?!?! Joanne took charge on the day of and allowed me to spend time with my daughter on that very special day. This was by far the best money spent on the wedding.

  • My goal was to hire a day-of coordinator to fully execute every detail of my vision WITHOUT having my cell phone or my mom or mother-in-laws cell phone ring on wedding day! And I have to say, the wedding day, which consisted of three separate venues for ceremony, dinner and reception, went off without a hitch! I had to be extermely organized up front with checklists that Joanne helped create, maps or each venue as well as have the ability to convey what exactly I wanted. It took a few meetings, lots of Pinterest photos and some phone calls but we absolutely nailed it thank you to Joanne and her assistant Andrea. Our day was spectacular and we coulnd't have done it without them!!! You will develop a trust in Joanne as you prepare and she will execute!

  • Joanne was spectacular during every aspect of our daughter's wedding! She is thorough, organized and a very professional event planner. Her day of timeline was spot on and she has a great rapport with many highly rated wedding vendors, which made the wedding day flow smoothly. There may be another wedding coming up soon in our family and you can be sure we're calling Joanne!

  • Joanne and Andrea were amazing for our "day of" needs! When meeting with Joanne, she had an extremely detailed list to review for all the items needed on the day of the wedding. I didn't realize how much I had forgotten until meeting with her! Andrea was so great during the day of, being flexible with the last minute changes I threw at her as well as making sure I didn't have anything to stress about so I could enjoy the day. I would highly recommend using Best Day Ever wedding services when planning you wedding.

  • Many thanks to Joanne and Andrea of Best Day Ever! We used their day-of services for my daughter's wedding and are so happy that we did. Because of the careful planning of the day's timeline and Andrea's thoughtful and conscientious attention to detail at the venue, we were able to relax and enjoy the day and evening. Their input and thoroughness was greatly appreciated. You don't realize the things that crop up during the day and Andrea handled everything with grace and ease. I think they've seen it all! When we first talked to Joanne, I wondered if this was a necessary addition to the budget but will now include it in any upcoming weddings. You will be so happy you did too!

  • Joanne was so wonderful to work with and I can not recommend her more highly. The families were in Minnesota and the bride and groom in New York City. Joanne was able to meet with the bride when she returned to MN and was very available for emails and conference calls. Joanne helped with vendor recommendations, the day of timeline, and all the behind the scene details that make the wedding day go smoothly. On the day of the wedding, we were so grateful to have her be the point of contact letting us enjoy the day without the added stress of making sure everything was going the way we had planned. Joanne went above and beyond at the end of the evening when the take down took longer than planned. Joanne was calm, organized and paid attention to every detail. I would call her again in a heartbeat!
