  • I cannot say enough nice things about Diane! She was absolutely spectacular and helped me survive wedding planning! I honestly did not know where to start when I got engaged, and Diane guided me through the entire wedding planning process, one step at a time. She listened to what I envisioned and was mindful of my budget, but gently nudged me in the right direction when I was lost or falling behind on my timeline. The thing that separates Diane from all the other planners out there is that she truly cares and goes above and beyond for her brides. When we were trying to get wedding invitations out on time, she drove to the suburbs, picked them up and hand delivered them to my house in the city. Another day I had a miscommunication with my hair stylist. By the time I arrived at the salon, it had all been straightened out and there was Diane with a bottle of Champagne and a big smile. Not only did she take the stress out of wedding planning, but she made it fun! It felt li... Read more

  • Diane Brisk is a true professional. She provided first hand support and her knowledge of venues and vendors simplified the selection process. Her experience was truly valuable throughout the planning process. Diane and her team provided the “extra touch” to make our event go smoothly and allowed us to enjoy everything without worries.

    Jon Paul, Thanks a bunch for the endorsement; it was such an honor to be a part of your families! Don't even get me started about your brother's toast! "One High...One Low...& One in the Middle" Best toast ever!

  • Diane truly was an H.B.I.C. throughout the last few months leading up to our wedding, which is exactly what I needed! She was a great listener when I expressed my desires, but she also offered guidance and help from her past experience. Being a first timer at going through the wedding planning process, there was a lot I didn’t think of or know the answers to and that’s exactly where Diane came in and she was very thoughtful about it. She catered to my style and jived well with my laid back personality, which helped relieve a lot of my stress. Anything of urgency or concern, she handled in a very calm manner and in most instances without me even noticing! The day of our wedding went off without a bump in the road (at least to my knowledge) and I give Diane a lot of credit for that happening. She let me enjoy my day and have fun and didn’t bother me at all. She kept the day moving on schedule and I didn’t even notice she was there, which in my opinion is a great thing! I highly r...

    Ellyn, thanks for the amazing review. Your wedding was such a blast I hardly noticed the blizzard we endured that day, perhaps it was your sister’s toast that was a parody of 50Cent’s “In the Club” maybe it was the pack dance floor singing all night long. Not sure. but definitely one of the most fun times I’ve had producing a wedding.

  • HBIC/Diane was fantastic. She really knows her stuff and removed alot of stress off the Bride and her Mom. She made sure we did not forget important tasks and when we could not make decisions - she helped guide us. Awesome to work with. I would highly recommend HBIC

    Hi Paula, I really appreciate your kind words. It was a delight to be a part of Ellyn & Kim’s special day. I’ll take a January Snowstorm on for your family as long as the reception is as fun as your was. Again thanks for letting me be a part of the fun!

  • Every detail was thought of, including several things I would have forgotten and ended up freaking out about. Hiring Diane of HBIC was the best decision of all of our wedding planning. Her organization, calm demeanor and suave handing of both family members and vendors (simultaneously, I might add) absolutely made our day a joyful success. Not having to worry about coordinating pesky details allowed us to ENJOY every moment of our most special day together without distractions. My wife and I vote HBIC our best investment of 2018!!!

    Hi Brad, Thanks for the kind words; I hope you & your lovely wife are loving Palm Springs! Cheers, Diane

  • I cannot say enough good things about Diane! We needed someone to guide us in getting just what we needed to transform our venue from typical to magical. Diane not only knows the right vendors, but she also knows what works & what doesn't. She has many years of experience, and we were able to use her expertise to help make important selections. She was available for several meetings ahead of the wedding. She was there all day ensuring that everything was in place. I learned that she had our backs more than the venue did! Our band director later commented to me that Diane was amazing as she saw her working with the venue personnel. Knowing that Diane was behind the scenes allowed us to walk into that magical space and enjoy a most incredible evening!

    Hi Lisa, Glad to have been your glue! The look on Mary’s face when she entered the Ballroom is one I will never forget. Through 4 points of contact at the hotel, I’m happy to have been your one constant in planning. Cheers to your entire family!!

  • Diane was amazing and so much fun to work with!! She turned my dreams into a reality with a beautifully designed wedding all while taking care of the details and vendors. She is highly experienced and very professional. I felt very confident having Diane on my side while wedding planning! No bride should be stressed during their planning and/or on their wedding day. Diane made that possible for me and I’m eternally grateful for that. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Diane for making my wedding exactly how I imagined!

  • Diane with HBIC made the planning process and execution of our big day much easier. She has experience in cooperate and personal planning - which is something you totally want! She has insight into details a normal person simply would not. She took on the communication with many of our vendors to confirm details and put together/distributed a comprehensive plan to keep everyone on the same page. Value wise Diane cannot be beat, I would recommend Diane any day!

    Hi Kyle, thanks for the kind words. Your wedding day was a great example of our ability to "adjust on the fly" for sure. The decision the morning of your wedding to move the ceremony in The Grandmother's Garden of Lincoln Park to your airconditioned reception venue due to the 112 degrees of extreme temperatures was a hard, but wise call. Less than 8-hours later, all vendors were adjusted, and the wedding started. Thanks to the flexibility of all involved from you and Jose, the wedding party and guests, the wedding was completely reimagined and still a lovely evening filled with such pure joy, delicious foods, and dancing that was non-stop! Thanks for letting H.B.I.C. Weddings steer your day through the heat waves of change that memorable July day!
