We can’t thank you enough for all of your help with the wedding. Your professionalism is unparalleled! You’ve removed so much of the stress from today and we are very grateful!

Emily + Brad (Bride + Groom – November 2015)

Thank you for all of your hard work, help and assistance during the last ten months in planning our wedding day. We can truly say that it was the best day of our lives. You were absolutely amazing on our wedding day, always in the right place where our family and friends needed you. Several of our family members recognized your hard work and agreed that you were truly amazing and we wanted to make sure you knew! It was a pleasure getting to know you and we are so happy that we had the opportunity to work with you. Thanks for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!

Katie + Tim (Bride + Groom – October 2015)

We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work and creativity you brought to planning Heather and Mike’s wedding! It was so much fun to plan this dream wedding with you! Thank you for being the calming presence. ALL OUR BEST!

Jay + Joe (Mother of the Bride + Father of the Bride – September 2015)

I can’t believe we started this wedding planning journey a whole two years ago and the big day is finally here! Having Big City Bride’s help and guidance along the way has made it a wonderful experience. Your thoughtfulness and creativity brought such special touches to every aspect of our wedding and we truly don’t know what we would have done without BCB. We so appreciate all the time and efforts put forth to making our wedding day the absolute best and most perfect day of our lives. Thank you for all you have done, Big City Bride is amazing and will always be so special to us.

Melissa + Ryan (Bride + Groom – September 2015)

If you want a planner who fits your budget, and has also had major experience designing, planning and executing celebrity weddings… Big City Bride is for you. Our wedding was featured in People Magazine, E! News, Online and many more. In the beginning I wanted to go it alone. Thank goodness we didn’t!! Big City Bride connected us with bakers, linen retailers and a florist that was in our budget. If you tell BCB your Big Day vision, they will make it happen. Each time we met with Big City Bride, we felt like royalty, with a special, personal greeting sign at the BCB entrance. They met with us for hours, emailed incessantly and coordinated with all our vendors so we didn’t have to!! Imagine all those last minute questions from vendors… not in your in-box. It’s amazing!! On our wedding day, Big City Bride ignited special surprises along the way. They had a rain plan ready to go for photos and the ceremony. (Luckily we didn’t need it.) We were married 25 stories above the city of Chicago. Unbeknownst to me, one of our Readers was afraid of heights. Big City Bride comforted him and he didn’t miss a beat. Our DJ (one of the groomsmen) was also a little nervous and Big City Bride was able to calm him down too. With BCB by your side, you avoid all potential wedding day hazards and can revel in your day. Problems disappear (as do fears). You don’t realize how many obstacles you face trying to plan a wedding until a planner is there to ward off what could be an apocalyptic day.

Natalie + Ed (Bride + Groom – July 2015)

Thank you so much for all your hard work over the last year! Our wedding was wonderful. We had an amazing time and we heard so many great things from our guests, too. It was really a pleasure to be able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that you and your team would take care of everything. THANKS!

Mandy + James (Bride + Groom – July 2015)

Thank you so much for all your hard work to ensure our wedding day was perfect. Thanks to Big City Bride I felt completely calm and relaxed and our vision was executed perfectly! Big City Bride is great at what they do and it was a pleasure getting to know you. It was a day we will NEVER forget!!

Lauren + Kevin (Bride + Groom – July 2015)

Thank you for everything. Big City Bride really went above and beyond and we were just telling someone today that our wedding really couldn’t have been more perfect, and you are to thank for that Big City Bride. Your energy and excitement toward us made us feel that we were long time friends and not just another client. Thanks again and please stay in touch. You’re amazing!

Joe Gnoffo (Groom – June 2015)

Thank you so much for all that you did to make our wedding day truly a dream come true! It was so much fun working with you and really wonderful to be guided through the planning process by someone with your level of knowledge and expertise. Sending you our warmest wishes for the rest of wedding season and for all that lies ahead!

Madeline + Matt (Bride + Groom – May 2015)

Thank you a million times for all of your (very extensive) help planning and running our wedding. Rob and I felt so fortunate to have you as our planner and hiring you and Big City Bride was the best decision we made in the planning process.

I tend to run towards the “type A” end of the spectrum, but your organization and follow through kept me completely stress free through out the entire planning process and wedding day.

There are a ton of things we appreciated-from recommending Blue Plate and Roberto (our guests raved about the food and music) to working to make the reception venue completely beautiful. Walking into the Rookery, I was completely blown away. You, your team and the vendors just perfectly executed what I had dreamed of for our wedding reception. We seriously cannot thank you enough.

Sarah and Rob (Bride + Groom – May 2015)
