BCB Team- Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a tremendous wedding weekend! You’ve been a joy to work with from start to finish and helped us to put on a wedding that we and our friends will never forget. Our lives (and email inboxes) will feel a little empty without the excitement of wedding planning with you on a daily basis, and we can’t wait to sing the praises of BCB to all of our friends and family! Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts!

Dear Most Awesome Wedding Planner in the World/Universe!

Thank you so much for putting together the most perfect wedding ever! You made the entire process fun, and Rick and I were so incredibly stree-free on the day of our wedding! We had the best time and everyone is STILL talking about our special day!

YOU ARE AH-MAZING!!! We wish you the best!!!!

All our love,

Tracy & Rick (Bride & Groom – October 2014)

How can I ever thank you for the hours and hours you spent making our wedding the most incredible day of our lives?! I hope you could feel the joy and happiness radiating from me, Stephen, my mom and every guest in the room that night. 🙂 You gave us the wedding we could have never even dreamt up…it was better than our dreams! The amount of trouble-shooting and problem solving our wedding put you through shows what a talented and resilient planner you are. You never showed worry or concern and always made me feel comforted and taken care of. You were a true blessing to us and honestly, you made it possible for us to get married this summer! That first conversation you had with my mom was “a gift from God” in Sue’s words. 🙂

I wish I could tell you every single thing I loved about our wedding but it would take pages and pages! Not even that, but the entire process was FUN because of working with you. I’m not kidding about how I miss your wedding emails! Your positivity was evident even in your upbeat messages. 🙂 You are a gift and I am so excited for the other brides who also get to enjoy the gift of working with you.

So much thanks. From the bottom of my heart,

Allie (Bride – July 2014)

Thank you for making the wedding planning process so enjoyable- you are so simply the greatest! You are so full of magic & we look forward to living inside the magical world you have created for us tomorrow. I love you as my planner, but more importantly as a person. I feel blessed to have you in our lives!

Big City Bride is truly the best. From the moment we selected our planner, the entire process was fun, organized and flawless! We could not have been happier with our wedding. Here are just a few reasons why:

1. Remote Planning Help – Remotely planning a Chicago wedding from Boston seemed somewhat stressful. When our original wedding venue cancelled our reservation and decided to shut down, the planning process seemed even more daunting. However, Big City Bride instantly put us at ease. Within days of the cancellation, they had already put in a “hold” for our wedding at a dozen venues. They also provided pictures, pricing, and the pros and cons of each venue based on their years of experience in Chicago. The level of experience and professionalism at BCB, as well as their numerous contacts throughout the Chicago wedding industry really helped us navigate a tough situation.

2. Organized and Fun – It is no surprise that every wedding vendor we interacted with told us Big City Bride is the best planner they work with in the city. The entire BCB team were incredibly organized during the planning process. They helped sequence all of our major decisions and provided excellent recommendations on even the smallest details. They worked closely with our vendors behind the scenes to make sure everything was on track and to make the vision of our wedding a reality.

Perhaps even more importantly, Big City Bride is a joy to work with. The energy and fun they bring to every interaction are infectious and refreshing.

3. Day-Of Perfection – The day of our wedding, we felt completely happy and carefree. Every detail (big and small) was perfectly executed, and Big City Bride was so helpful to us and our families. We knew we could just relax and enjoy our family and friends, because BCB was taking care of the rest!

Now, as we look back on the memories of our wonderful wedding weekend and how beautifully and easily everything came together, we know that BCB is the best wedding decisions we made.

Kristin (Bride – August 2014)

I cannot even describe to you what a fantastic job you did planning our wedding. It was the absolute happiest night of our lives and it could not have been more of a PARTY! Our guests continually say it was the best wedding they have ever been to, the most fun they have ever had at a wedding, the best food they have ever had, best band, etc…I am SURE you are relieved all the planning and stress of our crazy situation is over but I hope you can look back on the night and see a job WELL DONE. You were fantastic and Stephen and I and my entire family are SO thankful for all that you put into our special day. I am still in awe of how amazing everything looked and how smoothly the day went and we owe all of that to you.

Allie (Bride – July 2014)

The only reason why I was so calm and collected was because I had the best wedding planner in the world!!! 🙂

We are still talking and rehashing everything….I caught Bill in the living room with the Happy song blasting doing the dance by himself!!!???? He had so much fun doing that with Allie! I’ve heard many people say that that was one of their all time best weddings they have ever been too!!
