I would have never hired a wedding coordinator if my venue didn't require it. I am such a control freak and was so worried that the wedding planners wouldn't see my vision or work in the details. But, I just showed up to my own party and everything was BETTER than how I could have done it myself! These two totally took the reins and just made it all happen exactly the way I wanted it to. Every vendor showed up on time and at the right place, every smallest decoration made it exactly to the right place, everyone in the building was familiar with my timeline and special requests and the event was perfect. I had been to enough weddings to witness horrors like dinner service running way too late, people not really knowing where to go, the bride running around the room STILL planning her wedding while everyone just kind of watches her struggle. Jenn and Tera had everything done way before guests arrived, and we got nothing but compliments about the flow of the whole evening. And, while I planned everything to a tee as much as possible, there were several decor elements I kind of just threw at them and said, put it somewhere where it will look good (like 60 vases filled with water and floating candles) and they looked great. The event was so beautiful, and I can't tell you what a TOTAL DEAL you are getting having TWO coordinators. No one else does that. Jenn and Tera are extremely professional, dressing in incognito clothes and staying behind the scenes when possible. I knew I hired the right people because they had a clipboard glued to their hand and never stood still. I needed type A people to run my wedding, and that's exactly what I got here. Just hire them, you're welcome.Sent on 07/14/2018

Best Friend Borrowed are absolutely fabulous to work with! We hired them for day-of planning, and from the time I met with Jen and Tera about a week before the wedding, I knew I was in great hands! They asked all the right questions to make sure everything was covered, and I felt totally confident in BFB. It felt great to know that I could take a step back and focus on family and friends.Sent on 05/10/2017
On the wedding day, they handled everything seamlessly from set-up through the end of the night. The space looked beautiful and the night ran perfectly. They truly went above and beyond! The next morning, as we were reminiscing about the night, my husband actually said, "I have to say, hiring Jen and Tera was one of the best decisions we made... those girls were on top of things!!!" I highly recommend Best Friend Borrowed to help make your wedding fabulous!

Hands down, deciding to hire Best Friend Borrowed was THE BEST decision my husband and I have ever made. Jenn, Tera, and Stephanie are a joy to work with. We hired them for only the day of, but their involvement in our wedding started about two weeks before the actual day. We sent them all our vendor contracts and they called and coordinated with all the vendors about timelines, delivery times, pick up times, etc. Then, they ran the whole rehearsal the night before. The last two weeks can be stressful, but their involvement made the last couple weeks stress free.Sent on 03/07/2017
On the day of, they arrived early and set EVERYTHING up. The three of them worked tirelessly and endlessly to ensure that everything was exactly as I dreamed it to be. They truly care about taking your vision and making it into a reality. I literally did not have to do anything, but drink coffee, and enjoy time with my bridesmaids as we got our hair and make up done. The wedding would not have happened without their help. They set up tables, chairs, table cloths, and decorations. They even cut bougainvillea for our wedding arch and attached it to the arbor. A few problems arose, as they always do, and they had possible solutions ready to go before I even knew there had been a problem in the first place.
As the day continued, they were always on the go, working as the glue between all the vendors. They never stopped working and kept everything moving, according to the timeline we agreed upon. I felt so happy knowing that they knew the timeline and could come and find me when it was time for the grand entrance or the cake cutting. This allowed my husband and me to truly enjoy every moment and not have to worry about time or what was coming up next. When the wedding ended, they cleaned EVERYTHING up and even organized it in the designated room.
Their prices are more than fair, especially since they bring a team of 2-3 coordinators with them. I cannot praise them enough for everything that they did for us!!

Best Friend Borrowed was an absolute dream to work with on a wedding inspiration. I am a wedding photographer that had the opportunity to work with them. Best Friend Borrowed did a wonderful job planning the wedding; they were on time and their styling was creative. Their team did a terrific job communicating with me, answering emails and calls. Overall, I was impressed with their attention to details (moss placemats, a wooden ring box, flower colors and a whimsical cake). If you're looking for trustworthy and creative wedding planners I would recommend Best Friend Borrowed.
Very sharp people who really know the Phoenix wedding market. A lot of fun to work with.
