Hiring Barb and her team was the best thing I did. We have sold a house without a realtor but now I would not think of having a wedding without a planner and I would want Barb. I'm pretty organized and theoretically I could have done it but there are a myriad of details that would never have occurred to me and I would have been a crazy woman by the time the Big Day rolled around. Barb applied experience and foresight to the planning process to avoid foreseeable problems and make sure the wedding had the elements and feel we wanted. Stuff went wrong-and when you gather 200 people and try to have a momentous occasion followed by drinking and dancing--that's a lot of moving parts and one of the parts is going to have an issue. I was blissfully unaware of the glitches because Barb and her team took care of them. This is the bottom line: it was a magical day and everybody had a great time, including me, mom of the bride. That doesn't happen by accident! Thank you Barb!

Barb is an amazing planner. She is so organized, professional, and is looking out for the best interest of her clients. We had an awful experience with a venue and had to change 2 weeks from our wedding date to a completely new place. Barb worked really hard to basically help us start from scratch. She was so flexible with all the changes that we had that were so last minute.
On the day of the wedding, my husband and I didn't have any worries and it was perfect! Barb and Hannah were fantastic! I got so many compliments from family/friends at the wedding about how great they were. So thankful for all the hard work they both put in to make sure my husband and I had a day to remember!

We interviewed other wedding planners but Barb was our clear favorite. It takes quite a leap of faith to entrust such a major event to a stranger, but there was an immediate sense that Barb was someone we could trust. She listened to us but made informed suggestions that ended up creating a perfect day. The team members are consummate professionals: organized, sensitive, and willing to respond quickly and unobtrusively whenever curve balls seemed threatening. Barb also hooked us up with the best vendors we could have envisioned and worked incredibly well with all of them. I heartily recommend Barbed Wire without any reservations whatsoever.
