Hiring Barbara's Brides as my day of coordinator was one of the BEST decisions that I made during the planning process. My mother and I were very particular about the details of this wedding. I know that no one other than Barbara could have performed to our satisfaction. From our initial consultation, Barbara blew me away with her knowledge and experience regarding weddings, the industry, and what it takes to execute a bride's vision (i.e. budget, flow, guest satisfaction). Her insightful suggestions were a nice change from the same generic advice I received from the other planners that I talked to. Here's the thing - every bride has some idea of what she wants on her wedding day. Barbara listens to this and not only helps you execute your vision but enhances it. Admittedly, I was skeptical about some of her ideas but deferred to her anyway. Well, my guests RAVED about the things that we included (all of which were due to Barbara). Once I booked Barbara, she was always available (via phone or email) to answer my questions or to offer her suggestions. The planning process is stressful especially if you're planning from a distance and the event involves several moving parts. However, I always felt at ease after speaking with Barbara. On the day of the wedding, Barbara and her team were EXCELLENT. They set up the rooms beautifully, and if there was an issue or a problem, I didn't have a clue! Everything flowed nicely and everyone had a wonderful time. To be clear, while I hired some of Barbara's preferred vendors, the majority were vendors that she had yet to work with. Barbara wasn't phased - she managed the event efficiently, effectively, and professionally. Trust me - I was a very picky and particular bride. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator who is smart, sharp, professional, and experienced, you will find all of that and more with Barbara's Brides. She will go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is a beautiful success!

GRAND PERFECTION. If you want the perfect, storybook wedding, and who doesn't?, you should hire Barbara. From start to finish, our affair was flawless (and stayed on budget!). The credit all goes to Barbara. Her expertise in event planning is surely unparalleled. My daughter said she wished she could keep Barbara in her life after the wedding! There are not words to express our gratitude to her for orchestrating the most perfect event ever...there should be 10 Stars for this rating.

Barbara is the BEST wedding planner for any type of wedding planning service you could possibly need. I had her for the "day of/month of" services and could not have been happier. She was so thorough, flexible and patient with any and all of my requests as well as the vendors' requests. She was poised and calm in the face of any day-of predicament but also straightforward and brutally honest when needed. I gave her pages of decoration instructions (due to our venue's arrival time constraints) for set-up in addition to the already scheduled vendor set up and she did each and every thing I asked and then some! I was absolutely blown away by how wonderful and hardworking she was for me and my family. Could not be happier with how it worked out! Barbara is THE best!

I had many decisions to make regarding our wedding on Oct. 13 but my decision to hire Barbara/Barbara's Brides was, by far, the best one. Barbara knows her stuff inside and out and guided us through this minefield like no other. She gave us her honest opinion on all of our decisions and I'm grateful we took her advice on just about all of them. It saved us a lot of headaches. I also can't emphasize enough how invaluable she was in helping us select our vendors. In a city like Austin, where there are hundreds of vendors, it's almost impossible to know if you're picking the right ones. Barbara really helped us narrow down our selections and if we ever had any trouble contacting a vendor, she was right there to help move things along. She's the best and I'd hire her again with no hesitation for any large event planning. Thanks, Barbara!

We hired Barbara Hearne of Barbara’s Bride as our ‘Day Of’ wedding planner. I am very organized and was, at first, slightly reluctant to hire any help from a coordinator. But now, I can say without a doubt, it was the best wedding planning decision I made. Barbara was so much more than just a ‘Day Of’ planner. She became my sounding board, and she was always there to help calm my nerves. Barbara is extremely knowledgeable and having her as a resource was invaluable. She has helpful insight to endless Austin wedding vendors, and her expertise was extremely useful. She constantly went above and beyond my expectations! Looking back, I can’t stress enough how important it is to hire a wedding planner. And Barbara is the best of the best! She was there to take care of all the details and keep the entire day running smoothly. She managed vendors, helped with set up and breakdown, kept the schedule on track, and much much more. I was amazed at how much she juggled on my wedding day. And she did it all flawlessly! On top of being great at what she does, Barbara is fun! She was such a pleasure to be around, and that is crucial on such and important day. Hiring Barbara allowed me to let go of control, and just relax and enjoy my wedding. Without her, my mom and I would have been a wreck! I honestly feel that our wedding would not have turned out nearly as wonderful if it weren’t for Barbara. I would highly recommend Barbara as your wedding coordinator! Thank you so much Barbara for all your hard work! I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am!

Starting from Barbara's amazing vendor recommendations to organizing last minute details at the reception, I could not have made a better decision working with Barbara during the wedding planning. She is always available and extremely helpful with my endless questions and had a way to make me feel better every time, especially during the week of the wedding with the threat of rain. She always had an answer and I knew that I was in good hands. The wedding day came together just what I had envisioned and it was only possible with the help from Barbara and her team and her preferred vendors. I recommend her to every bride out there!

I hired Barbara Hearne about three and a half months before my wedding date, after realizing that, as a busy graduate student, I couldn’t handle all the planning on my own. Plus my fiancé and I were living a long way away from Austin in Rhode Island, and wouldn’t be able to handle much in person. We chose Barbara based on her glowing online reviews, and a stellar phone interview. Though time was tight, she got on top of every detail immediately, helping us find a reception venue, an officiant, a photographer, a caterer, a florist, and a cake! She coordinated in person with my family in Austin, and with me over email and phone to make sure everyone was in the loop and on schedule. She walked us through every step of the rehearsal, and she and her assistant Erika there in person to make sure the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. It was an absolutely perfect day, and we couldn’t have done it without Barbara!

Barbara is truly amazing! From the second I spoke with her on the phone she put my mind at ease. Being a bride planning an out-of-state wedding I felt an extra layer of stress because I couldn't be there for everything, with Barbara as my wedding planner, I didn't feel stressed at all! I had complete confidence in her. She handled everything from arranging vendor appointments when I came to town to handling every detail on the day of my wedding. She is incredibly knowledgeable about vendors and was even able to save me some money! Barbara is so easy and fun to work with, I can truly say I had the best wedding planner ever! Barbara gave me my perfect wedding! Barbara I cannot say thank you enough. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
