My dream came true! I had everything I wanted without stressing or becoming a bridezilla. Terri from Something Borrowed Something New is an amazing person. She did the impossible in order to create the vision for our wedding. At first when we first started the wedding process, my husband and I had no idea where to start but she made everything easy while managing costs. If I could write every word of what people said about the wedding, Gosh I could write a book! Everyone loved everything about the wedding specially since they never imagine it would be so detailed. I loved hearing those comments because this is what we wanted for our wedding and we were fortunate enough to work with Terri to make this dream come true. Terri stayed on top of things and made sure everything was done as we got closer to the wedding. Arthur from StyleStudio gave us more than we could ask for!! Terri will help you find the right vendors for your wedding! For future brides out there looking for a wedding planner, Terri is the best person for that. She will make sure you get everything you ask for!!

As I sit underneath our covered patio on this rainy day during our honeymoon, my husband Ryan and I cannot stop reminiscing about our amazing wedding and overall experience leading up to the best day of our lives. I owe everything to Terri and Beth at Something Borrowed Something New (SBSN) for making our big day so effortless and perfect! From our very first meeting, I knew Terri and Beth were the best of the best, and that we would be in good hands while planning our wedding; Terri was incredibly organized, concise, and a wonderful listener. She immediately "got us", and went above and beyond to make the planning experience stress free. She and Beth gave spot-on advice, helped keep my scatter-brain on top of things, and never let anything fall through the cracks.
I found SBSN to be incredibly helpful in choosing our vendors; from helping us find the perfect photographer (Matt Wood Photography), our amazing DJ with a photo booth (Ra-Mu & The Crew), our florist Allison (The Frugal Flower), to the best invitation and paper goods vendor Addie (White On White Invites), Terri & Beth nailed every detail and helped us create the Rustic-Chic fall wedding of our dreams.
Our wedding day was also impeccably planned using SBSN's detailed and extremely helpful timeline so that our wedding party always knew where to be and when, allowing us all to relax and enjoy! From setting up our cigar and candy bars, to making sure our guests got home safely, Terri and Beth made sure our day was fun, memorable, and flawless. They saved the day numerous times by fixing last minute busted button’s, a stain on my wedding dress, and locked rooms that had our burlap table runners; Terri & Beth handled it all with grace and we honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team.
I highly recommend any bride, whether in New England or elsewhere, to take advantage of this amazing team of experts; they are truly the best of the best!

Terri was absolutely terrific. She did everything possible to accommodate our needs for our trip to Punta Cana and for our "30th" wedding anniversary vow renewal this year. She responded to all emails and all phone calls in a very timely and professional manner. She sought out the best possible deals to accommodate our somewhat limited budget. She even let us borrow a table and offered to let us use some of her own personal items. This is now 4 times we have used her services. Myself and my wife have only had exceptional service. Way to go Terri! We wouldn't even consider anyone else.

We had more than an amazing time in Aruba, and I think its safe to say that our family and friends did too! The consensus was that we had the best wedding they have ever been to!!! That definitely would not have been possible without Terri Altergott and SBSN Events! I am so fortunate to have found them! Terri was beyond personable, sensitive, attentive and respectful of every need or want. I cannot say enough how highly recommended they come!

Beth of Something Borrowed, Something New Events provided my husband and I with "last minute" coordination services for our wedding a few weeks ago, and she was absolutely fantastic. She worked tirelessly to make sure that we got everything we wanted on our special day. From going up to the bridal suite after the ceremony to grab me a pair of flats in exchange for my uncomfortable heels to convincing the hotel to give us an extra half an hour in the ballroom free of charge (we started late), Beth one hundred percent set the standard for how wedding vendors should operate. If we have another large event in the area, Something Borrowed, Something New Events will be involved from the beginning.

Terri has been a wonderful wedding planner. My wife and I sought her help 2 months before the scheduled wedding date, and within just two months, she organized everything and did what we thought were impossible. The day of our wedding went wonderfully, and it certainly would not have happened had we not received Terri's help. Her professionalism and caring nature relieved us much of the stress during preparation, and we were thoroughly pleased. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends.

If you want your wedding day to go absolutely perfect, do yourself the biggest favor and hire Beth Rolfe as your coordinator. This incredible woman made our special day even better than I could have imagined. Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting Beth prior to our big day, because of my crazy schedule, I was lucky enough to be introduced to her through Matt Wood of Matt Wood Photography. Beth and I had spoke a few times before, and her love and knowledge for her career unveiled even through text messages and phone calls. The morning of, I believed I had thought of everything, down to the smallest detail. Even when the night was quickly coming to an end, I still assumed I had thought of everything because of how smoothly the day had gone. However, my family informed me the next morning of all the hiccups that had occurred that my guests and I were completely oblivious to. Beth handled all the details forgotten and mistakes made without my knowledge. She went above and beyond to insure that our day was beautiful; making sure the food came out in a timely manner, fixing torn pants or shirts on a few groomsmen, putting our gifts in a safe place, and making sure my husband and I had pieces of cake and champagne in our bridal suite for when the night was over. Beth even took a ride to get my husband new socks (he had worn white ankle socks, of course). My family and I still refer to her as, "The Wedding Ninja." I cannot thank Beth enough, she was one of the core reasons why our day was as special as it could possibly get.

I don’t even know where to begin when trying to make this review about Terri with Something Borrowed Something New Events. My type A personality knew that I would not be able to enjoy our day if I didn’t have someone there to guide us through everything. Weeks of searching the internet brought us to Terri of Something Borrowed, Something New Events.
From the beginning, she was prompt and able to answer all questions; she was warm, knowledgeable, and down to business. Terri took the time to completely understand our vision and what we were planning – and this was all in our first meeting before she was officially hired! Of course, she left our meeting hired and with 100% of my trust and I am so thankful for her.
Terri was hired for day of coordination but she really went beyond that. From our first meeting she’d check in periodically with us to make sure we were doing all right and that everything was on track. She always made herself available for us. Just mere weeks before the wedding she took all our contracts and went over there – she steered us away from so many catastrophes that I cannot even count the number of times I said “oh my goodness, Terri is a God send”. I can’t even imagine the mess that would have been my wedding if Terri didn’t work her magic every day. Terri took two trips out to our venue (which was 2 hours away!) to make sure that we knew exactly what was going where and how things were to be set up.
Terri and Patty were there bright and early on our wedding day – they ensured our 25 page timeline was going exactly as planned. They helped with the setup, decorations, and coordinated our million vendors for us. My groom and I were able to relax and most of all thoroughly enjoy every minute of our day.
I can honestly say with Terri by our side, we never felt stressed, rushed, or overwhelmed. She took us under her wing and was able to get everything done and made our wedding day the most gorgeous, perfect day I could ever imagine.

Five months ago when my daughter asked my opinion about hiring a "day-of" coordinator for her wedding, I was thinking that between the two of us we were very task-oriented and extremely organized and why would we need someone else's help? THANK the heavens she hired Terri Altergott from
Something Borrowed, Something New Events. It was the BEST INVESTMENT she made in her wedding.

After the initial meeting with Terri and her detailed interview process about all aspects of the wedding, my daughter and I looked at each other and said "She's HIRED!" My daughter and her fiancé had chosen a beautiful Berkshire Mountain venue Santarella Estate and Gardens for their wedding/reception and because we live two-hours away, there was plenty of "distance" planning necessary.

Terri quickly became involved with all vendors: venue, hotel, caterer, tent company, officiate, photographer, videographer, rehearsal dinner, DJ, hair/make-up and transportation. She reviewed and crossed-referenced vendor contracts and found numerous oversights that could have proved disastrous on the wedding day. She fielded questions from all parties involved; helped solve a few vendor disagreements and diffused delicate family issues.

In addition to coordinating and providing support for the wedding rehearsal; her presence (and her assistant Patty) at the wedding was absolutely invaluable! Unless you have planned and executed a wedding before, you really have no idea how MANY details need to come together on the day itself. Terri was there EVERY step of the way. Looking back on the wedding (which was actually only 72 hours ago) I think about how many times I heard Terri say, "I'll go do that" or "Let me handle that - you go enjoy."

My daughter and her husband had the wedding they dreamed of - the day was absolutely magical and filled with love and laughter. Terri played a big part of making this happen and I wish I could give her more than a five star review because she deserves 100.

I can not describe in words how AMAZING Beth Rolfe is!!!! I would recommend her for absolutely everyone! The best way to describe Beth's work:

THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY SHE HAS TIME FOR OTHER CLIENTS, FRIENDS, OR FAMILY WITH THE AMOUNT OF WORK SHE HELPED ME WITH!!!!!! I FELT LIKE I WAS HER ONLY CLIENT. SHE IS THE PERFECT WEDDING PLANNER. SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!!


I interviewed several companies for a wedding planner, and after receiving the initial e-mail back from Beth (which was hilarious, fun, and a very quick response!) I knew she'd make take this stressful time and make it a fun time. Beth is someone who just loves her job and it absolutely shows in the amount of time and effort she will put into helping you.

Beth helped me create the absolute wedding of my dreams! I had two ceremonies (Hindu and traditional American) all in one day. 1,000 things could have gone wrong but the day of, everything went absolutely flawlessly!!!! She knew everything that could go wrong at a wedding, and prepared the entire day to work perfectly! From the flow of events, the preparation for unpredictable weather, bugs, or accidents, to the decorations; everything was clearly well thought out and prepared. I cant imagine planning a wedding without her! I can not say enough good things about Beth and SBSN Events. You will be 110% satisfied if you chose them :)

Terri and her team were amazing. I can't say enough about how much my wife and I think SBSN. We had a bunch of unique requests, and Terri not only met them but added excellent ideas.

She's really nice and easy to work with...on our wedding day, Terri just took on all the event planning, so that my wife, myself, and our parents did not have to.

Lastly, you will save a ton of money if you hire Terri, because she will make your wedding more cost effective (which was important to us).

We're big fans and really grateful to Terri for her work...

Dear Terri,

We are writing to express our appreciation and thanks for the wonderful job you did as our event planner. You were exactly what we were looking for.

With planning a wedding in three short months, we had two major goals in mind: 1, to celebrate our marriage in a beautiful intimate way with many customized details while 2, enjoying every minute of the ceremony and reception while not having to stress about the execution-knowing and trusting that everything would be taken care of and at the right times.
I admit, I was hesitant about hiring an event coordinator, but you allowed us to lead based on our visions and feelings. This is a special quality that you possess.

Thank you for your help and guidance. You made sure that every detail with the planning was covered. From table and tent vendors, linen samples, to centerpiece ideas, you made every step enjoyable and fun! Your confidence, calmness and reassurance was felt instantly and carried out through the final day!!!

Your recommendation of vendors, especially Peppers Fine Catering, your extremely detailed and helpful timelines were amazing! You and your staff were able to work with us to create the wedding of our dreams.

Being our second marriage and having four wonderful children, you worked with us to fulfill every loving vision we had. Knowing that you were available at all hours of the day via phone, text, or email made us feel at ease. In fact, by the end of our multitude of meetings, whether it was at our house, the reception site or the ceremony site, we felt as though you were family and shared the same visions as we did.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day and we want to thank you from the bottom of all six of our hearts for helping make this dream come true. It is almost 2 months after our wedding and we are still receiving compliments on just how beautiful and touching the day was!!!

With love, thanks, and appreciation,
Chris and Amy

We did a destination wedding in Italy using Terri as our US wedding planner. She was great from the start arranging us to meet planners in her group all across Italy, showing us some of the most stunning venues in our budget. We picked Varenna, Italy as our spot at the Villa Cipressi. She guided us through everything from picking colors, setting up room blocks, music, wedding materials and even booked our honeymoon. She was an amazing resource in so many ways. Always available via phone, email or in person to our needs. Our wedding wouldn't have been so amazing with the help of Terri and her group. I would be happy to recommend her to any of my friends or family in the future.

Terri assisted us with our daughter's wedding and in all honesty, she was an absolute Godsend at times. From helping us with the budget, reviewing contracts, answering etiquette questions, to even helping me write my welcome speech, she was always ready, willing, and able to offer a helping hand. If you're looking for peace of mind and really want to enjoy your child's wedding, do yourself a favor and hire Terri. She won't let you down.

It's hard to add much to the glowing reviews already posted here. I recommend without any reservation, that you call Terri and have her plan - no - RUN your entire wedding. Afterwards you'll be sitting in front of this screen just like me, wishing you could give her MORE than five stars for everything.

Our wedding (my daughter's) was high-end, with all the trimmings at a 5-star location, so there was a lot at stake in terms of living up to the quality of the venue and pleasing guests that were expecting a party the likes of which they might never attend again in their lifetime. In a nutshell, it came off perfectly. The guests were astounded - no exaggeration.

Terri was the reason this wedding was a total success. She was in constant communication with us, at all hours for the three months leading up to the wedding (and then some). She worked the details down to the minutia, bringing to us a choice of vendors that all were up to the task. She was especially diligent in working with the guests' hotel arrangements, communicating with them directly. When everyone arrived, everything was ready to go. The day of the wedding, which included, a hair and makeup party foe the bride and bridesmaids (and moms) was a delight. For the event itself, although we were tight on time (we had an 11:30 curfew form the venue) everything sequenced like clockwork. No hitches whatsoever. I cannot imagine how many hours Terri put into this wedding. Certainly more than I paid for. She was as serious about it as we were and we took great comfort in that.

I want to make special mention of the floral designs by Molly ("Eventually by Molly"). She had the task of decorating a mansion which is a historical landmark by day, with a two-hour setup time. Not only did she install a truckload of flowers and decorations in the allotted time, but she actually made the mansion look BETTER than it already was. The lighting was designed and operated by Andrea ("Ambient Lighting"), and the two of them, and their staff, turned this venue into a truly fairytale vision, worthy of the best parties of the early 1900's with a modern twist. Absolutely stunning.

The other vendors, which I can't list all of, were all brought to us by Terri, all lived up to their reputations, and were worthy of working a once-in-a-lifetime wedding like this. This includes the officiant, the lovely Paula, the band ("Plaid Daddy"), the string quartet ("Intermezzo Chamber Players") , the wonderful Ian on bagpipes, transportation by "East Coast Limousine" and an antique Jag provided by "Excelsior Limousine", a spectacular cake by Jeanne (I dream of Jeanne"), beautiful hand engraved invitations and place cards by Addie ("White On White") with calligraphy by Patti ("Simply Done"), and above all, a meal fit for the occasion by the caterers, "Plantation Catering of Newport".

If you'd like to talk about it with me in person, I'm happy to. Email me, Angela, and we'll arrange a phone call.

When obstacles arose, she handled them with great determination and tact. The result was a wedding weekend that was virtually flawless from the Friday rehearsal dinner through the Saturday wedding and the Sunday family brunch. We could not have done it without her.

I don't even know where to begin when reviewing Terri because we honestly could not have done it without her (and Nikki and Janice!)

On our modest budget (which kept changing) she helped us put together an amazing wedding. I was worried I wouldn't be able to afford a wedding planner but after talking with Terri at a Bridal show and then sitting down with her and my then fiance to discuss what we needed, she assured us she could take care of everything at a price we could handle.

She was ALWAYS available to answer our many questions about the planning process and did so in a very timely manner. She helped us find almost all of our vendors and everyone she recommended did an amazing job as well. Since we were planning an out of town wedding, about an hour 1/2 from where we currently live, she would contact vendors and set up appointments for us all in the same day to reduce our travel time. She also helped keep us on schedule and was always conscious of our budget.

The minor bumps that did occur in our planning process were quickly smoothed over...like tornadoes that are not indigenous to our area hitting one of our hotels a week before the wedding.

On the day of the wedding if anything rocky behind the scenes happened, the groom and I never knew about it. The professionalism of Janice, Nikki, and Terri on that day was unparalleled. Everything went to smoothly and it was a perfect (though very rainy) day.

We highly recommend Something Borrowed Something New to anyone planning a wedding big or small, you won't be disappointed.

PS did I mention she also helped plan our honeymoon??? Oh, and that was amazing too :)

Thank you Glenn and Kasey for this lovely review. Wedding Planning is truly a partnership between the Planner and the couple. When everyone is engaged, dreams are fulfilled, but that couldn't have happened if you hadn't been so involved. You two were a wedding planner's dream and it was such a pleasure to be with you on your big day. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this with you. Wishing you and Glenn a lifetime of happiness except for perhaps when the Bears play the Pats. I'd like to be the one that gloats this season. :)

Aww Sweetie, thank you so much for these lovely words. You became like my daughter through this and I know your Mom would have been so proud of you. She was definitely looking down from heaven that day and gave us the wonderful weather even though the forecast was for thunderstorms. You and John will be lifelong friends and I can't wait until you're back in the U.S. or we're in Ireland so that we can spend some time together. Maybe we'll be planning a baby shower next? It seems to be a trend with our brides. :) Much love, Terri

I really wanted a candy bar to serve as a favor at our wedding, but needed help figuring out exactly what to do. My hotel's wedding coordinator recommended asking Terri, and what she came up with was beautiful. She put everything together in less than 3 weeks, and she also helped us find our ceremony music and gave us ideas about other things. I can only imagine if they planned a wedding it would be out of this world!

Terri and Janice are amazing women! We hired them for day of wedding services. When everything was said and done, we had them the whole day of the wedding, the night before, and at least three other meetings with them, not counting an endless chain of emails and phone calls. They really took the time to make sure that everything was right for our day and that we would have the best wedding possible. They helped to solve problems, smooth over snags, and help us to enjoy our wedding day virtually stress free. We absolutely could not have pulled of such a terrific wedding without them, and everyone that we invited who spoke to Terri and Janice agreed that their services were invaluable.

Something Borrowed, Something New Events saved my wedding! I only had 8 months to plan the wedding, and SBSN made the planning so much easier. It is so hard to find vendors who do the best work, not charge you extra, and will be dedicated to the job. Having a planner as great as SBSN makes the process a lot less scary because you know that you are in great hands and that you are getting the very best with everything. Janice, with SBSN, helped me with EVERYTHING! She was the ideal person to have with you during the planning process and on the big day. She helped me stay on track with my budget, find vendors, negotiate prices, and make sure I had everything that I needed and more. I must admit that I went into this process thinking I didn't need a planner. I was dead wrong. Not having a professional help you makes the process 100 times more stressful. There are a million things that go into a wedding, and you don't want the weight of all of that on your shoulders. You want to think about your special day, not worry about all the details that go into that day. You want peace of mind that all those things are covered and you can enjoy the one day in your life that goes by way too fast already. Janice is not only professional, but one of the nicest people you will ever meet in your life. She is the person you want by your side on the big day. I was living in San Diego planning a wedding in Vail with my wedding planner in Boston. Destination weddings are SO hard to plan and everything would have fallen apart on my wedding day if it wasn't for her. Everything went off seamlessly in Vail and I had the best wedding. Friends and family still tell me how amazing the wedding was, and I tell them it was Janice! And, with SBSN you aren't just another bride, you are a friend. They give you the best quality attention and care. And, you can change your mind 100 times and they are patient, understanding, and kind. Just ask Terrie! I changed my honeymoon plans 100 times on her, and she never got irritated, she just continued to deliver. They both have the best inside information and deals, and you really do save money with a wedding planner. This is one day in your whole life. Do it right and go with the best - Something Borrowed, Something New Events!

From the first meeting Terri asked all the right questions and honed right in on what my daughter and her fiance wanted for their wedding. To say that the wedding had an ecclectic theme and not your run of the mill traditional wedding would be an understaement. The best way to describe their day. Terri and Janice, her associate, embraced all their ideas and desires and guided them along the way to their wonderful wedding day.

The wedding was a destination wedding in a rural setting in Amherst. The venue, The Red Barn on the campus of Hampshire college was beautifully decorated as was the site of thier outdoor wedding.

My daughter, her husband and I all work full time and we were confident that Terri would create the right atmosphere for them. Terri and Janice's work met their expectations and more.

In addition, we used a number of Something borrowed and Something New's preferred Vendors, Fee Bain, Nicki Davis and Molly Shea. Molly made beautiful peacock feather bouguets, a cake topper of peacock feathers that stood out from a more traditional bouquet of flowers. Nicki Davis made 3 beautiful baskets for me, 2 for the restrooms and 1 for my daughter. She even included walking tour cards San Francisco where the couple will be honeymooning.

I can't say enough about Fee Bain, who was a master at creating and making all the groomsmen's outfits and my daughter's wedding gown. It was fascinating to watch as she worked with my son-in-law to make the outfit that he was wearing and had all the elements and colors that made him shine on his wedding day. My daughter sparkled and floated through her wedding day and I was so pleased to see how Fee took her vision of a dress and made it a reality. Thank you Fee.

I would highly recommend Terri and Janice to anyone who is planning a wedding. I got to enjoy every minute of my time leading up to the the day of wedding and the day itself. That time was a priceless gift that I will forever appreciate.

I found SBSN extremely helpful in planning my daughter's wedding. Terri and Janice were kind, patient, creative, and caring. They really knew how to deal with a nervous bride and her mom. SBSN came ready to do whatever we needed and wanted. Communication was continuous and prompt -- I never had to wait long for a response to one of my questions. As a client, I feel the service provided was of the highest quality. Terrific vendors were recommended to us and they were all excellent, as well. I feel it was the best investment I made in planning my daughter's wedding. Would I recommend SBSN to another bride-to-be? Absolutely!

Then using these same characteristics she transformed an outdoor pavilion into a gorgeous reception venue. Incorporating all the colors and wishes we had she made our day one we will never forget, she even went above and beyond our expectations doing more than we could have asked or wished. A very, very special thanks to Terri Altergott and her assistants in taking our vision to a new and exciting level allowing for our day to be extra special.

As the mother of the bride, trying to plan a weekend-long destination wedding I knew that I needed some help. From the moment I met Janice and Terri at Something Borrowed Something New, I knew my prayers were answered! They were so much fun to work with - one step ahead with the planning all the way! My daughter had a story-book wedding and I was able to enjoy every single moment - thanks to Something Borrowed Something New. Their commitment to the end result is phenomenal - and they dot every "I" and cross every "T" along the way. They are professional and have access to everything you ever need in the planning process. What stands out for me is their ability to so quickly get a feel for what the bride is envisioning - what details would make her day one she will never forget. Then they take it and run with it in every direction! So creative and resourceful.

My daughter's wedding was at 3 pm on a scorching hot day in August - and with so many details to attend to at home the morning of her wedding (wedding party, hair, make-up, pictures, etc.) I never arrived to the ceremony and reception location until minutes before the ceremony started. And guess what? I never once worried that something would be wrong - I knew Janice and Terri were there taking care of it all! Peace of mind. . . it's priceless!!!

In the planning process, there were several perfect places at the wedding location for my daughter's ceremony. The waterfront was the least perfect - but my daughter's dream was to arrive to her ceremony by boat. Well - Janice and Terri were determined to transform this ugly waterfront area into something beautiful. It was breathtaking! Everywhere I looked there was another small detail that they thought of. Buckets of water for thirsty guests on a hot afternoon, taking care of the needs of our elderly guests, amazing decorations on the boat. . . where did they find the time to get all this done?! Then when the ceremony was over and we walked up to the cocktail hour -- I couldn't believe how breathtaking everything was. The transformation was incredible.

What happened next? My husband and I enjoyed every minute of my daughter's big day. Terri and Jancie had things running so smoothly and kept everything on track - from the introductions, speeches, first dance - right to the last dance!

Hiring Something Borrowed Something New Events was the single best decision I made - out of literally hundreds of decisions that were made.

creativity and most of all, her attention to detail made the event the hottest
party of the year! Looking forward to hiring Janice/Terri's expertise on my next event!

Something borrowed, something new events made my dream a reality. My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and our day was exceptional. Terri and Janice helped me through all the struggles and obstacles that we faced with our wedding. They took care of everything form our fifteen day destination wedding in cancun to the reception here in the states. We faced many obstacles with the swine flu and almost anything you can possibly imagine and they were there every step of the way to straighten it out so that our day could be everything we wanted and more! They could not have been more helpful. Everytime I called with a question, comment, or concern my call was returned promptly. They have great ideas and can work within a budget with no sacrifice on what you want. They took care of a lot of the leg work so that I could concentrate on things like finding a dress. They helped to make phone calls and confirm dates and times and whats needed from the vendors. Thanks so much Terri and Janice for making my day a day to remember! If your looking for a wedding planner look no further they are the best, let them make your day as special and perfect as ours was. ~Lindsay and Bryan

I could not have asked for better service from Terri. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Having a destination wedding certainly provided unique challenges but Terri was able to make everything incredibly easy for me. Terri had custom made centerpieces, favors and more all sent to Mexico for us. When we arrived at the reception the tables were gorgeous. I didn't have to lift a finger and she some how managed to have everything taken care of. I would highly recommend Something Borrowed, Something New Events. I wish I could get married all over again every year and this is all thanks to Terri.

Terri was amazing at keeping our hotel reservations in order and getting everyone on the shuttles on time and to the venue on time.
Where Terri really shined was her handling of our vendors. When the florist my MIL hired for the rehearsal dinner didn’t show, Terri ran out, found an alternate florist, and delivered the centerpieces herself. Also, when our wedding-day florist had a serious car accident the morning of our wedding Terri was right there to find someone to fill in.
Lastly, and maybe most importantly, Terri saved us money. When it became clear to Terri that I wasn’t planning on letting her make decisions unilaterally (which is the service we initially paid for), Terri told us she felt it would be most honest to drop us to a lower package since we were doing so much of the work ourselves. Again, this was not because she was incapable but because I wanted to do it. We really appreciated that she saved us so much money on her own contract.
There were only a few things that didn’t go so well for us with Terri. The biggest was her assistant, Claudia. She didn’t have a good grasp of the timeline and kept asking us questions about when we wanted to do the bouquet toss or where we wanted it to be. We found Claudia to be difficult to work with and would not recommend her at all. Fortunately, we heard from Terri after the wedding that she is no longer working with Claudia, so I guess future brides don’t have to worry about it.
Lastly, we felt Terri sometimes had trouble grasping our offbeat tendencies. For most of our personal details and preferences she was really great about letting us know what other couples typically do so we were informed, but easily accepting whatever decision we made. It was a little difficult when we changed the typical processional order. In the stress of wedding planning I did find myself frustrated at times by that resistance.

Claudia, our main point-of-contact, was simply great. She added special touches to our decor (mirrors under the candles on the head table? beautiful!), worked really hard on the ceremony music timing, making for a wonderful moment when I began my walk down the aisle, and made sure everything ran smoothly all night, while staying in the background the whole time. Though we had hired SBSN for the Day-Of Coordinator, both Claudia and Terri worked closely with us in the weeks and even months leading up to the wedding. Our wedding would not have been nearly as magical and wonderful without them!

We worked with Terry and her team for our January 14th, 2012 wedding in Aruba. Trying to get 130(+) guest from Boston, NYC, DC, LA and other locations to Aruba during the winter proved to be a difficult task, one that without Terry and crew we are not sure we could have logistically done. Terry met us numerous times before the wedding face-to-face (which meant a lot to us) and hundreds upon hundreds of emails to make sure the day went perfect, which we think it did. We would (and have) recommended Something Borrowed Something New to anyone and everyone who is thinking about a destinantion wedding....the entire team is honest, hardworking and professional. Thank you again SBSN and Terry. Nicole and Steve

Terri was an amazing wedding planner with lots of information and very helpful for the entire 9 months of wedding planning. My husband and I live in Florida (planning a wedding in Boston) and she was very attentive the entire time with answer emails and phone calls whenever we had a question. She is very detailed with all of her visions and made everything very clear and painted me a beautiful picture of what our wedding was going to be like since I was only there to see everything myself for one week in March before the wedding (wedding in August).

On the wedding day, she had everything planning out with a itinerary which helped us along the way. I do wish though, that she was there herself more then the piece of paper. It was a struggle trying get everyone together and not letting my husband see me before the ceremony. The ceremony was beautifully decorated and so was the reception, it took my breath away.

The reception was great, all of our guests would have thought that nothing was wrong but were a few things that were disappointing. We were all confused at were we were supposed be for songs and speeches, there should have been more direction, so a lot of my immediate family missed some important parts of the wedding. She was no where to be found a few different times during the evening. Their was a few items that we purchased for decoration that we never received after the wedding. My cake had 3 flavors that were on cards that were supposed to be displayed on a table that were never put out so only 1 flavor of cake was offered.

But overall Terri does her job well, I do believe that their are a few things that could be worked on. She is a very sweet lady and knows how to make a beautiful wedding come true. Thank you Terri for my wedding, it was absolutely gorgeous and I had a wonderful time.

Something Borrowed, Something New Events responded with the following comments:

This is what my bride's mom had to say about this wedding in an email to our Florist....

I am closing that huge "wedding folder" that has accumulated over the past 8 months! The couple has had a beautiful send off starting their lives together. And momma is starting "my own" chapter in life!!

It is quite the emotional rollercoaster, but with a team that Terri put together, including yourself, has taken part in making Melanie and Cole's Day come true! I am so very thankful for that... for you probably understand a mother/daughter relationship!?! Between Melanie in Florida and me here, I knew it may be best for someone else to handle all. That was the best decision I made, and in came Terri, and as it turned out, Melanie and I had a very memorable day together too, relaxed and just having FUN!!

So thank you once again.

It's always difficult to hear that a client was less than ecstatic, but you have got to look at the comments as constructive and learn from them so that you can be even better in the future. We have emailed our bride asking her to elaborate on her comments so that we can do exactly that in the future and also explain why at times we were not completely available to her. This wedding had lots of details that required us to address those things during the dinner hour which kept us away from the reception for about 45 minutes. She wanted a candy buffet and by allowing us to do that for her, it saved her close to $1000. The trade off is that we couldn't be in the room for the speeches or the cake cutting, but we had discussed that with other vendors in advance to ensure that those details went flawlessly while we were out of the room. Apparently that did not happen which is very disappointing not only for our bride, but also for us. The question before us now, is do we continue to provide these services at no additional charge to help our client's bottom line, or do we eliminate them completely so that we can be available to our clients at all times. It certainly has been a learning experience.
