Best Wedding Planner in the Chicagoland area

We can't recommend Anne and her team enough! Her positive and reassuring attitude always kept the bride upbeat and anxiety low :). Her attention to detail paid off and she always made sure the bride and families felt great about any decision made. The mother of the bride also had glowing reviews! She wanted to feel like the father of the bride and just show up that day which is exactly what happened. The day of the event was perfect and we have Anne to thank for our special day!

Best Money Spent!

Anne is amazing and had actually planned & coordinated for a few of my friends weddings before I had booked her, so I was familiar with her style and execution. We personally only utilized the day of coordination services and it was EXTREMELY worth it. She was a pleasure to meet/work with and I will recommend to any one in the future I know getting married. I'm type A so I did all the research, vendor contracting reviews, etc. for our wedding and thought I had covered everything, but there were still items that I would've never even thought about that Anne helped us with! Also, she helped a bit more when we suddenly lost our venue (90 days before wedding) due to an abrupt closing. And every single bridal party and family member that interacted with Anne RAVED about her!

Tying the Knot was recommended to us by our venue, Eaglewood Resort and Spa, and with out a doubt was that the best recommendation that we received! We knew we needed a coordinator since we we鈥檙e getting married downtown, having our reception in the suburbs, and would need assistance with all of the logistics of our wedding day. Brooke and her team handled our wedding day flawlessly! Brooke, was always available, especially in the leading weeks up to our wedding, to answer any last minute questions, and that really helped put my nerves at ease. Brooke reached out to all of our vendors and was able to spot any issues and got everyone on the same page. Brooke was also a big help when we met with our venue in our final walk through and asked a lot of questions that we hadn鈥檛 even thought of! By hiring Tying the Knot, my husband and I, and are parents were able to enjoy our reception and I don鈥檛 know what we would have done without them! Tying the Knot was the best vendor we used for our wedding day!
