Hiring Barb to help us with planning ahead of the wedding day, and coordination on the day itself, was the best decision my daughter made. Having Barb assist us along the way seemed like a gift to me, as the mother of the bride. Barb and her staff helped me completely enjoy this special day, and both my daughter and I were relaxed because of her excellent service. Barb also made recommendations on various vendors and we were thrilled with each of them.

I hired Barb with the intention of having her be the day-of coordinator for our wedding. I was worried about some logistics (most notably, transportation to the UVA Chapel from two different hotels in such a short time frame) and the small details that I -- never having been married before -- would be likely to forget or not know in the first place.

When my fiancée and I spoke with Barb for the initial consultation, we both knew she was the right choice: personable, experienced, and extremely competent. We had tons of questions, and she had answers for everything. She doesn't have a "day-of" plan, so we hired her for the "month-of", which meant we got her help with some of the vendor coordination and logistical concerns in the month or so run up to the wedding.

She saved our butts on transportation and helped guide us through things (like the ceremony details) that neither of us had a clue about. She made both the rehearsal and the wedding day go very smoothly, and we had no issues in large part thanks to her.

It is hard to say all that she did for us, but I think that the low level of stress we both felt (and my mother-in-law felt) on the day of the wedding was a direct result of her guidance and help through the process.

If you're looking for a wedding coordinator or planner in Charlottesville, you'd be a fool not to hire her.

Barbara and her team did an AMAZING job for our wedding at the Visitor Center at Monticello. We can't thank them enough for ensuring that every detail was covered and that everything ran smoothly throughout the night. Barbara and Shelly were incredibly thorough using checklists that included every vendor and timelines telling every member of our wedding party and immediate family exactly where they needed to be and when (which we desperately needed with all of our wedding party and both of families coming in from out of town)! Our families are still raving about how professional, sweet and helpful Shelly was at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. The key to a perfect, stress-free, and well organized wedding is the team from Barb Wired!! I would recommend them to everyone! They are the best investment you will make for your wedding!

When our daughter and future son-in-law asked me and my husband if they could be married and hold the reception at our home in Midlothian, VA we were overjoyed! I thought that a relatively small (65 guests) home wedding would be a breeze. My daughter and I soon realized that a wedding and reception is much more complicated than a cocktail party or family BBQ, particularly since I was in Midlothian, and my daughter was living and working out of state. Barb was wonderful! She came out to our house twice before the wedding to give us advice on the logistics of an outdoor home wedding (plus a rain plan) and to meet with the caterers when they came for their site visit. Barb was very good about keeping in touch with my daughter and me through emails and phone calls. This kept us always "in the loop." I am so glad we hired Barb! She and her team made sure everything ran smoothly from the wedding rehearsal through the ceremony and reception. They took care of the details and logistics so that everyone was able to enjoy the wedding!

Barb and her team were critical in making our wedding a success! Not only was it amazing to have help during the planning process, but they handled everything on the day-of and it was totally stress-free for us. They were there every step of the way and there's no way we could have pulled it off without them! We highly recommend Barb and Barb Wired!!!

They were there every step of the way and there's no way we could have pulled it off without them! We highly recommend Barb and Barb Wired!!! Read less

When my daughter decided to have a destination wedding at House Mountain Inn in Lexington, VA, I knew that we could not do planning on our own. We hired Barbara Lundgren of Barb Wired and from the start she assisted in working up a plan and providing us with vendor information. She gently pushed us when it was necessary and truly helped to keep our planning on track. Barb also has a very nice collection of items that we were able to use for free at the wedding service/reception. The wedding day is when Barbara truly shines as she and her staff take full control of the day and leave you to just enjoy it. She managed the entire event and the vendors and cannot imagine the wedding without her there. It was seamless. Thank you so much for helping to make Allie's wedding dreams come true!!

Barb was absolutely the best investment we made in our wedding. I did not think I had room in my budget (I really didn't...), but I had a great friend who worked with Barb in the past, and told me that I would not enjoy my own wedding if I did not have a day-of wedding coordinator. I called and met with several people in the CVille area who offer these services, but Barb really impressed me with her professionalism, her recommendations, and her rates, which were far more reasonable than the competition. My fiance and I decided to move forward with her, and I am so grateful that we did.

I loved wedding planning, and thought I did not need a planner for all the details...but I had NO idea how many details there are! Barb did know, and she helped me take care of every single one. She knows everyone in the CVille wedding industry, and they know and love her. She taught me how to create a schedule, where our planning wouldn't work, etc., and she was a constant resource for all of our questions and worries. She also told us where we did not need to waste our money (e.g. champagne for all).

Without Barb at our rehearsal, we might have been there for 3 hours. She got us out in 30 minutes. On the day of the wedding, Barb made sure everything happened on time, took care of every concern my husband and I had, and made sure we had a beautiful, beautiful day. Without her, I would have worried, and tried to be a hostess...instead, I just had a wonderful time. Also, she brought 3-4 interns and assistants, so I felt like I had a whole team of people helping!

If you are a bride, I recommend skipping a less important cost--like champagne--and hiring Barb instead. Our wedding would not have been the same without her.

Barb and her hard-working team took care of the big and tiny details of our wedding that on our wedding day and rehearsal, my husband and I had the complete peace of mind to enjoy our wedding. She guided us through the planning from day one, which let us put our complete trust in her for the whole process. She has a great relationship with all of the best vendors in Charlottesville, is affordable, and can handle any type of wedding: big and small. We were so lucky to have her help us with planning the best day of our lives!

Hiring Barb Wired was the best decision I ever made for our wedding! After getting engaged and deciding we wanted to do a destination wedding in the gorgeous Charlottesville, VA, we had no idea where to start! Barb led us through the entire process of wedding planning. From the first time we talked to my wedding day, Barb was calm and extremely helpful! She had so much experience and helped with our most important decisions. She had wonderful recommendations for other vendors and based on these recommendations we had an absolutely perfect wedding. She had great ideas for combining my husbands and my family traditions into the wedding. She even helped us create our wedding program and seating. She has an excellent collection of rustic items to make your wedding special! Barb and her team coordinated the wedding and made sure everything was exactly what we wanted. I cannot thank her team enough for such a perfect day. She is truly an amazing person to have on your team, I guarantee choosing Barb will only bring you a successful day!

We hired Barb for Day-of services, and really enjoyed working with her. Though our plan was officially for 6 weeks prior to the wedding, she was always available and willing to answer our questions months out from the big day. She was flexible and made time to meet with us whenever we were in town, and was always prompt when responding to emails. When there was an unanticipated change at our reception site, she advocated for us and ensured that our plans would still be carried through. She took care of absolutely everything on the day of the wedding-- I was worry-free. The reception went remarkably smoothly. Working with Barb, I got the sense that she has an immense amount of experience and has learned what's important and what isn't. We are very grateful to her for her outstanding services.

I absolutely cannot say enough about Barb and her team. I was a bride who didn't think I needed a planner but hired Barb half way through the planning process just to ease a bit of the stress. Her services proved to be invaluable though and I never would have had the wedding I wanted without her. It rained the day of for my outdoor ceremony and with my determination and her hard work we were able to still have an outdoor ceremony. I know if she hadn't been there I never would have gotten my dream outdoor wedding so I am eternally grateful for her hard work in directing vendors and redirecting already set up areas. She was constantly present and just a phone call or email away the whole planning process. If I had a question from etiquette to recommendations to small detail questions she answered promptly. She was one of the best investments we made in the wedding by far.

Barb and her team are fantastic. I worked with her for about a year planning my dream wedding. Right from the very beginning she was attentive, organized, and very detail oriented. She is on good terms with all of the vendors in the Charlottesville area, so everyone was thrilled to work with her. My husband and I live in Texas and were only in town once before the wedding, so most of the planning was via phone and e-mail. Our wedding was beautiful and perfect. Barb was such a joy to work with, along with the rest of her team. She is also extremely personable and experienced and has dealt with every weird family situation that one could ever encounter, which was very helpful. Barb's services are worth every penny and I would recommend her to everyone!

Hiring Barb Wired is an absolute must for having a wedding! I can't recommend them highly enough. Iris and Barb provided excellent advice, guidance, suggestions, and support throughout the planning process, and then orchestrated everything PERFECTLY on the big day. I basically showed up to the wedding without a care in the world - I completely trusted that Iris and her team would have things running smoothly, and all I needed to do was enjoy the wedding! Looking back on the wedding, I now can't imagine attending the reception and ceremony without someone else organizing the event, and Iris (and her staff) were the definition of professional, friendly, and competent. I am so fortunate to have worked with them!

Barb and her team truly exceeded our expectations at every turn. I was planning my wedding from across country, and her reputation for excellence and years of experience in the region really paid off for me, as it made finding vendors and services a cinch. Moreover, I trusted her completely. She was always friendly, professional, proactive, and helpful. After our 3-4 week out meeting, I truly didn't worry about a thing. She and her staff communicated timelines, seating and setup charts, and day of contact lists to all of our vendors, and took over all of the logistics so that I could relax and enjoy the time with family. And, what's more important was that our family also could relax and enjoy the time together, and didn't end up packing up gifts late night or dealing with any crises or calling vendors last minute. It was truly a seamless, magical day.

I recommend BarbWire events, and would give them 10 stars if I could.

By having Barb, Alana, and Abby on hand, we were free to enjoy the day and celebrate with our guests rather than worrying about the scheduling/ logistics/ coodination of all the vendors.

Hiring Barb Wired was the best decision I made about my wedding (other than my husband, of course!). Not only was Barb a wonderful resource to have about all things Charlottesville or wedding-related for the year leading up to my wedding day, but her team was one step ahead of the game the entire day. Any time I needed anything, I had someone there to make sure it was taken care of. Also, the majority of the time, they had already done it before I even thought of it. Having Barb Wired involved in my wedding day allowed me to truly relax and enjoy the day, knowing that things were taken care of and in the experts' hands. I'm so glad I hired Barb Wired and would make the same decision again in a heartbeat!

Having Barb Wired involved in my wedding day allowed me to truly relax and enjoy the day, knowing that things were taken care of and in the experts' hands. I'm so glad I hired Barb Wired and would make the same decision again in a heartbeat! Read less

Hiring Barb Wired to help with the planning of our wedding was the best decision we ever made. We kept saying throughout the process "How would we be doing all of this without Barb and her fabulous team?!" They were always two steps ahead and did an absolutely wonderful job keeping everyone organized leading up to and on our wedding day. We would without a doubt recommend Barb Wired to anyone planning a wedding or another special event in the Charlottesville area and beyond!

Barb and her team did an amazing job with my wedding- including helping with planning leading up to the big day and paying attention to every detail on the day of the wedding!! Barb was wonderful to work with and provided the best recommendations of other vendors in the area. We got married at Keswick Vineyards and I remember on our wedding day Cindy, the owner said to me you put together the "A-List" of vendors- with the help of Barb!

We could not have been happier with the professionalism and the ease at which the wedding came off. We had so many comments from guests about how smoothly everything went. Iris Luck and her helpers were fabulous and
we would highly recommend them. We didn't have to worry about a thing-they took care of absolutely everything and were delightful to work with and have them as part of our daughter's wedding.

Barb and her team were a pleasure to work with!! She was on top of everything and kept me on schedule (which is a hard thing to do)!!! She was strict where she needed to be which was much needed with my large wedding party and free spirited family!!! She dealt with everything and if there were any problems on wedding day, me as the bride, did not know about them. She is super sweet and nice and I could not have pulled off the wedding I did without her help and organization!!! I loved her and if my friends get married in the area are already thinking about trying to hire her!! She kept everything going and was flexible when things changed!!

We hired Iris and Barb Wired for "day of planning" but they ended up going above and beyond. Recommendations of various venders, last minute rehearsal dinner suggestions when our prior contracted rehearsal venue was sold, major organization - pre wedding and day of - and complete execution of event. We primarily worked with Iris, but emailed and spoke with Barb and she is just as fabulous!

Iris was excellent in helping us think through all the details and make sure everything went according to plan. She created this checklist of everything and timeline for pre wedding and wedding events. It was excellent to keep all our vendors on the same page. Iris is fabulous over email - very responsive and organized. I am very Atype and was initally concerned about being able to let go.... When we got a few weeks out, I did not have a single doubt. Iris and the other Barb Wired employees were excellent and exceeded my expectations.

Our daughter had a unique situation-She married into a traditional Hindu family so we actually had TWO ceremonies! The Christian one was performed on the front lawn overlooking the vineyards and mountains and the Hindu ceremony was done in the side yard where the porch had been converted to a mandap, a traditional Indian altar. From the rehearsals the evening before, to the ceremonies on Saturday, it couldn't have gone smoother. The staff was professional and friendly and seemed to really enjoy the occasion. Barb's coordination of all the details such as the setup of the bars, the dinner under the "big top", the DJ and all his equipment was absolutely top notch. My daughter is very picky and she was ecstatic with how everything went perfectly on her big day. My wife and I will heartilly recommend Barbara Lundgren and Keswick Vineyards as the best place we have ever attended a wedding. If you would like a first hand account of this beautiful day feel free to contact me at Riverdog17@ymail.

I just hired Barb Wired to coordinate my wedding on August 6, 2011. Barb and her team were extremely professional and organized. Having them coordinate the events of my wedding day made the entire day (and weekend) run extremely smooth. Her experience and professionalism were evident from our initial consultation, and as the wedding grew nearer, she was timely and maintained consistent communication. I would highly recommend her for your wedding!

My wedding was wonderful - but it wouldn't have been so without Barbed Wire. We hired Barbed Wire so that my mother and I could just enjoy the day, stress free. Barbed Wire delivered on this (and then some). They provided support and assistance throughout the planning process. They provided fantastic recommendations and kept us on track - their advice was always spot on and their timing was always perfect. One of the greatest feats that they accomplished was finding a German-speaker officiant (my husband is German). They tracked someone down in Baltimore, who turned out to be absolutely perfect. We worked mostly with Iris, who was a delight.

Barbara and her terrific colleagues were one of the best vendors we could have hired for our wedding! They were a wonderfully competent, calming, smiling presence throughout the weekend, and gave us the incredible gift of being able to actually relax and enjoy the ceremony and reception without worrying about logistics and details. We used Barb Wired just for "day of" services, but drew on Barb's expertise and help for a good six months or more during planning - her customer service is superlative! Highly, highly recommend.

Barabara was a tremendous asset and a crucial player in the success of our wedding weekend. It was so wonderful not to have to worry about little things and rather enjoy my time. She was a great resource in the planning process and stepped in but not on toes as it was warranted. We were complimented many time on how smoothly our wedding went and how orderly the entire process was. I was very pleased and would recommend her to anyone in need of her services. It was money well spent!

Pros: Barb and her team were incredible on our wedding day. The bride, groom, and family were all able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that they were in capable hands. Barb is 2 steps ahead at all times. She and her team were truly a pleasure to work with.
Cons: BarbWired does serve as more of a day-of coordinator rather than a wedding planner. I felt that there were some hours paid for prior to the rehearsal and wedding that were unnecessary. We were less than impressed by some of her vendor recommendations and ended up doing our own research to determine those that best fit our taste and budget.
