  • I hired Ashley a year and a half before my wedding, actually the week after my sister’s wedding when I saw her work first hand. She impressed me that much. “Do I need a wedding planner?” a bride (or groom) may ask. Surely it is an added expense but the best way I can describe Ashley’s services is that she allows the bride and groom to feel like a guest at their own wedding. We had a meeting about a month before wedding when she went over EVERYTHING. She then followed up with all vendors to make sure everything was addressed and made a timeline (which is a lot harder than it seems). I had a lot of decorations planned and knew I was going to need someone to move them. A budgeting technique of mine was to reuse the ceremony decorations again in the ballroom. Ashley set up the ceremony and then moved it all to the ballroom. And not only was she spot on with decorations, she made sure the rest of the wedding went without problems. Once the wedding was over and guests were transiti... Read more

  • Brides (and grooms!), Stop reading and hire Midwestern Bride!! Ashley is worth her weight in gold! We LOVED working with Ashley. She is truly an expert at what she does. Throughout the whole wedding planning process, Ashley provided such a calming presence and a clear dedication to us, especially during a pandemic!!! She never steered us wrong or made us feel like we had to do something. My husband and I live in Milwaukee so we were planning this wedding in Minneapolis. Ashley communicated beautifully with us (bride, groom) and our vendors. She worked around our travel schedule and always responded to our emails promptly. She answered all of the questions we threw at her and she gave her opinion in a very professional manner. On the day of our wedding, Ashley helped in more ways than we even know. She prevented disaster, a few things came up with our vendors the day of and we did not even notice because she fixed everything. She allowed us to enjoy our entire day! If we ever needed a...

  • We worked with Hannah from Midwestern Bride. We bought the "month of" package and that worked well for us since we had our venue and vendors chosen. We needed someone to help coordinate the small details which is exactly what Hannah did. We began by having a 90 minute call in which we gave Hannah our vendor contacts and put together a very detailed itinerary. It took several calls over the following weeks to finalize the itinerary, but in the end she helped us decide details we would not have thought of on our own. Simple things like processional order, family photo lists and more challenging things like when the vendors would show up and where they should enter the building and set up. My wife and I consider ourselves good planners, but there's no doubt we would have missed details had it not been for Hannah's in-depth questionnaire and itinerary. The day before the wedding, she worked with the pastor to help us rehearse quickly and she helped us set up tables, chairs and silver... Read more

  • We worked with Hannah - she was AMAZING. From the start she made us feel at ease. Every time anyone asks me for wedding advice now I always say hire a day of coordinator it makes everything less overwhelming. Hannah came with us to our 30 day out meeting and took notes on how we wanted the day to be. She was there the day of setting up and making sure everything was going smoothly. Literally nothing went wrong the day of our wedding!!! She asked great questions and we are sooo happy we had our part of our big day!! Thank you Hannah and midwestern bride!

  • As a full-time event planner, the first vendor I decided to hire for my wedding was another event planner. Multiple people questioned this, because to them I had an arsenal of skills that equipped me to plan a wedding. First off, your wedding is a unique event that you have never actually planned -- and god willing will never—plan again. So, just because I have planned corporate and non-profit events doesn’t mean I have any experience in the wedding world. Secondly, if event planning is my full-time job (wedding experience or not), why on earth would I want to ‘work’ on my wedding day? Thus, I decided to find someone who, at minimum, could completely take over the day-of duties that weddings require. So the search began for someone that I could put my utmost faith in to make sure my wedding day went exactly as planned. Or, better yet, who could handle any situation for when my wedding inevitably did not go as planned. I interviewed several planners in Dane county, but didn... Read more

    There are no words... and that is rare for us. Thank you for taking the time to share this encouragement and all of these kind words. We were thrilled to celebrate with you and be a part of your planning. You are too kind and we wish you all the very best in your marriage! Cheers

  • We loved working with Midwestern Bride, with Ashley as our planner, and Alex as our DOC. Ashley really helped connect us to the perfect vendors for us and was able to bring all of my ideas to life as well as brought some new ones to the table that truly made our wedding unforgettable, to both us and our guests. Alex executed everything so wonderfully, and eventually became basically my therapist the week of the wedding when I had other stresses in life that I needed to vent about. I couldn't have imagined our wedding without either of them and would highly recommend them to anyone!

    Oh my goodness, I miss you already! Thank you so much for welcoming us into your day. You had an amazing day and we were thrilled to be a part of it :)

  • We loved Midwestern Bride and had Val as our wedding day of coordinator. For Chicago prices, Midwestern Bride can't be beat. We met with Val 2-3 times in the 5 weeks prior to the wedding and she was available via phone and text when we needed her! She did a great job dealing with vendors and calling them the week before. She brought up many things we never thought of and our day went perfectly! No hiccups. We cannot recommend Val enough!!! She is professional, organized, easy to talk to and she always put us at ease!

  • Reviews for day-of wedding planners tend to focus on the competency of the planner's ability to put together the big day. Ashley is to be commended on her work marshaling all the components of our wedding, and her work in this area alone would merit a 5-star review. However, let me underscore the most valuable contribution Ashley provided us on our wedding day: preventing disaster. Inexplicably, we had several gigantic problems before and during the wedding - including a major traffic accident 20 minutes before the ceremony that blocked off the venue entrance. Ashley expertly handled everything and was able to conceal the

    Traffic, car accidents, sound complications... we were dealt some tough cards on your day there is no doubt but you had such a spectacular wedding! I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet you all and be a part of your vendor team. The Field Museum is such an iconic space and you had a remarkably beautiful day. I'm glad we were there to support you, I am glad things turned out as we hoped, and I'm thrilled to have take part in your wedding day. Congratulations once again!

  • This is THE BEST investment you will make for your wedding. Alex and Hannah handled everything for me flawlessly with the DOC package. I did nothing on my wedding day except relax and enjoy! We had over 15 contracted vendors including 2 hotels, 2 different buses, 2 venues, and 2 different groups of guests and 3 different options for ceremony depending on the weather- they didn’t make a SINGLE mistake. They were so responsive and never made me feel like anything less than their number 1 priority- absolutely exemplary work. Spend the (extremely reasonable) amount of money, you will not regret it!

  • There is not enough wonderful things I can say about Ashley and Hannah! They executed my day and vision to the T! From the rehearsal to the end of the wedding night, everything ran smoothly thanks to them and their experience! My sister is getting married next year, and before our wedding was over she knew she needed to book them as well! :) highly recommend Midwestern Bride!

  • I'll start by saying Ashley is worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. It's so evident that she loves what she does because she does it phenomenally. We were planning our wedding from out of state which added another level of anxiety on top of the already stressful planning process, but the minute I got on the phone with Ashley for the first time, I felt a huge weight come off of my chest. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, attentive, and professional. My dad met her for the first time at our rehearsal dinner (which she came to and ran flawlessly) and asked, "Where did you find her? She's incredible." She had everyone together feeling confident about exactly what would take place on the wedding day and took all the stress away. The entire wedding day was executed to perfection (in my eyes), which is the most amazing thing about her. She took care of any hiccups and made sure that to me, it was the best day ever. One (of the million) examples is I panicked about the color of the water ... Read more

  • Ashley is a LIFESAVER! Not only did she handle a the little details to ensure our day ran smoothly, but she even ended up having to step in and be our officiant. She was so easy to work with and truly gave me a piece of mind. She is worth her weight in gold. Save yourself the worry and just hire her!

    Oh thank you so much! This day is not one to be forgotten and officiating was a first for me but I’m so thrilled I could be of help. Congratulations and thanks again

  • At first I didn't need a wedding planner -- I plan and coordinate events for a living and thought a wedding planner was just another expense, however, I could not have been any more wrong. A day of coordinator is priceless. Hannah, our DOC, was an absolute doll. She was present ALL day long and beyond. She thought of every single detail, she made sure that we were on time for every part of the schedule, from the ceremony through the end of the reception, and she basically took care of every detail so that we had more time to spend enjoying our day. She literarily was with us until 1:00 am, and was even sweeping the venue floor before we left. We couldn't have done this day without her.

  • Absolute perfection. If there's one thing that is a necessity on your wedding day, it is a day of coordinator. I utilized MB & Ashley for their DOC package and it was by far the best investment of the entire wedding planning process. Ashley made my wedding day an absolute dream. She is organized, professional, charismatic, kind, and always on point. All details, follow-up calls, problems, and confirmations go through her so I could just enjoy the experience of getting married. All my family commented how wonderful it was to have her there. I am a Type A planner and was hesitant to have someone else at the reigns however your wedding day is the day when you don't want to have to worry about a thing except the celebration. I cannot recommend Midwestern Bride enough and can confidently say they played a huge part in making my wedding day flawless. Thank you Ashley & MB for all you do! -Sarah & Rohit, Chicago IL

  • Living in Michigan and getting married in Chicago, having a wedding planner was HUGELY helpful. We went with the weekend package which was perfect for us. Ashley was very responsive and did all she could to make sure our wedding went smoothly, and it did! We had an absolute blast. It was really nice that Ashley knew our venue, Rivers Restaurant, so well. There were a few minor mishaps here and there, mostly due to just logistics in busy downtown Chicago, but nothing anyone noticed.
