    Well-Connected Austin Wedding Planner!

    We hired Barbara's Brides as a day-of-coordinator for our August 2020 wedding, which was ultimately moved to May 2021 because of the pandemic, after our venue coordinator recommended her. Barbara is well-established in the Austin wedding community. I had no doubt that she and her team could pull off anything with their experience and connections. Because of this, I was relieved that I didn’t have to worry about missing details or checking things off my list because I knew Barbara would make sure things were addressed. Barbara provided a preferred list of vendors early in the process, which was super helpful in reviewing and deciding on our many options, though many of our vendors were not on her list. She preemptively checked on us during the pandemic, moved our date with no issues, shared a wedding checklist, shared a wedding timeline with me and the vendors in advance of the big day, and after the wedding, she ensured I received a reimbursement for services not rendered by one of the vendors. She was especially kind when she gave us a lovely Driskill cookbook, which we decided to use as our wedding guestbook. Barbara's associate Gerad ran the day-of coordination and did a fabulous job. There were a few small details that I would have changed, but in the grand scheme they didn't matter, and certainly without Barbara and Gerad, our wedding wouldn’t have turned out so great. I am very grateful to have found such a professional and established team that pulled together all the major details while allowing me to enjoy and soak in the day.

    Barbara's Brides November Wedding Review

    We hired Barbara's Brides as our coordinator. Throughout the planning process Barbara was there to consult on ideas, review contracts, create a timeline + layout and handled all vendor coordination that month. Her expertise in the field is excellent and she had great advice to give.

    Gerad was our day-of coordinator and he was awesome! Trying to round up 10 women (bridal party) and keep them on a timeline is no easy task and Gerad handled it perfectly. He was so on-point the entire day. It was a whirlwind but Gerad was there to guide us through it all. Honestly, if something went wrong, to this day I have no clue because he was that good and took care of every little thing.

    Initially I was worried about working with Barbara throughout the planning process and then handing it over to Gerad to execute but there was not a thing to worry about. These two are pros!
