Mimi (& her assistant Kristen) were fantastic! Mimi came highly recommended to me by a friend and in turn, I would highly recommend her as well! I hired A Bride's BFF for "day-of" coordination to ensure my big day went smoothly. Mimi did just that and more! I wouldn't have changed a thing. She was helpful, responsive, flexible and in general, wonderful to work with. If there were any fires that came up, I was (and still am) none the wiser. She was worth every penny!
A Bride's BFF responded with the following comments:
Jennifer, it was such pleasure to work with you and Ash! Your organized and friendly nature made it so easy for us to do our jobs. Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you build your new lives together.

A Bride's BFF provided day-of coordination for our October 2017 wedding and we couldn't be more pleased with the service that both Mimi and Carolyn provided. From the very beginning, Mimi was very responsive to our questions before we signed a contract with them. Then, about 6 weeks prior to our wedding day, Carolyn stepped in and helped guide us through the small timeline details and made sure that we always stayed on schedule during the final planning stages as well as on wedding day. Carolyn even helped calm our nerves on wedding day when we encountered an issue by assuring us that she and our other vendors would manage and work around anything that may come up. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we truly cannot imagine it without Carolyn's help. We strongly recommend A Bride's BFF!

We can't say enough good things about Mimi & A Bride's BFF. We got the partial planning package (which was extremely reasonably priced) at the point where we had only booked our venue and caterer. From that point forward Mimi helped us with recommending vendors, planning details, doing some research and correspondence for us, giving advice and answering even our most nuanced questions, and whatever else we needed. I should also stress that we were planning our wedding from across the country, and her punctuality with responding to emails and ability to make sure we were on track were wonderful and critical to pulling off our wedding. We also spoke on the phone once a month to go over everything and once a week or so in the last month. The wedding itself went great, Mimi thought of every detail and coordinating everything with us and the vendors, which we thought was pretty amazing considering we had only met her in person twice before and we had not seen many of our vendors/decor ideas at all prior to the wedding. The highlight was how she went above and beyond with our chuppah - we had a very unwieldy "kit" of birch branches which we somehow had to pull off assembling in under an hour at the venue; she came to our house the week before to see it and get all of the details of how to construct it and coordinate a team of vendors and relatives to pull it off smoothly. it was a pretty big hassle and technically not even part of her job description! We would recommend Mimi to anyone! We only wish we booked her earlier for the full planning package! Thanks Mimi for everything you did!

An absolutely amazing experience. I can tell you from experience that not all wedding vendors are the same... Mimi is a must! She is so responsive and organized and was very helpful in corresponding with all the vendors as needed. My wedding day would have been very stressful with out Mimi's help, and I owe it to her that I was able to enjoy every moment of the best day of my life :) Mimi, you're the best! I can't thank you enough. Love, Natalie & Alex

I am truly happy with choosing a Brides BFF to assist me with planning my wedding. Mimi was the perfect wedding planner. She was passionate about her work and went above and beyond to make sure things was perfect. She was such a breath of fresh air, very patient and knowledgeable about her weddings. Mimi made my special day come true. Everything went smoothly and it was amazing. Thanks MImi, you are the best!!!!!!

We just got married a little over a month ago and one of the things that my wife and I still talk about is how great our Day of Coordinator was. We had a great time working with Mimi from A Bride's BFF. From the weeks leading up to our wedding and then on the day of the wedding Mimi was fantastic. She was available whenever we needed her and had questions. Our wedding required a lot of extra work because the venue we chose required a lot of DIY work for decorating and more! Mimi was able to handle all of the extra set up/delivery and take-down of all of the many many decorating items that my wife made for our wedding! Whether it was hanging string-lights, garlands, placing name cards, setting up a chuppah, or lining the wedding aisles with Ball jars filled with colorful yarn Mimi and her team had no problems at all being able to follow through on all the tasks. I am extremely glad that we had your services throughout our wedding. Without your help our wedding would not have gone as smoothly as it did!

I booked A Brides Bff pretty early in my planning process because I just had a feeling it was going to be well worth it and it absolutely was. Even though we only signed up for a day of planner - Kelly was available for us 30 days out which made all the difference in the world. We were assigned Kelly as my day of coordinator and she was absolutely amazing. She knew all the answers to my questions and also gave me really really helpful pointers to make the process easier! Kelly made sure all my changes happened.. even my last minute ones!! She was right by my side and made sure everything happened as planned. We wouldn't have gotten through it all, so stress free, with out Kelly and A Brides BFF!!!

Kelly Jarvis worked with us to insure that the wedding ceremony and reception were flawless. Her guidance meant that I could relax for the rehearsal, the ceremony, and the reception. In short, I could enjoy my daughter's wedding without having to worry about anything because i knew Kelly was in charge. That meant so much. Whether placing all those escort cards, checking over the cocktail and dining areas, shepherding our guests, the bridal party, cueing the organist, greeting our guests at the reception, placing the favors, and handling all the items that remained after the reception was over, Kelly was patient, kind, smiling, and confident. She was a joy to work with and the reason I could truly relax and enjoy the day.

I am a very careful person when it comes to planning big events, double- and triple -checking everything to make sure that it will go well. I was planning a very large wedding for my daughter, and I really was concerned about how I was going to be able to enjoy the ceremony and the reception. A friend of mine used a Day of Coordinator and when she explained the concept to me, I realized that was exactly what I needed. I have a hard time trusting someone else with such important details, but after my husband, bride, groom, and I all met with the owner, Mimi, I was convinced that it would work. Although Mimi was not available for my daughter's wedding (I had waited to long to decide to book a DOC before I even contacted her), she put us in touch with one of her coordinators, Carolyn. Mimi determined that it would be helpful for us to hire Carolyn and two assistants, given the size of the wedding (174 guests). Carolyn was wonderful. Although she (technically) was not scheduled to work directly with me until a month prior to the wedding, she took the time to help me with some very pressing questions beforehand, involving figuring out timelines for the whole day (including hair and make-up). She was easy to talk to, knowledgeable, very receptive to questions or tweaks, and responded promptly. She checked in twice with each of the vendors before the wedding. Carolyn also helped us during the wedding rehearsal and made sure that it worked and that everyone knew what they were going to do. I really felt like we were in good hands, especially during the wedding reception. If there were problems or issues during the reception, she handled them like a pro, because I did not know about them. Carolyn and A Bride's BFF really helped me, and I was able to really enjoy my daughter's big day!

Working with A Bride's BFF was a great decision! Mimi set us up with Carolyn (along with two assistants) for our big day. Carolyn was absolutely amazing. She was able to promptly answer all of the questions that my mom and I asked her throughout the planning process. The wedding day itself went very smoothly as well. I know without her, I would have been stressed out constantly-- about whether my other vendors were set up, where my ceremony items were, and whether all the groomspeople would be ready on time. Instead, I was actually able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks to Carolyn, we were able to get hitched without a hitch!!

Kelly was our day of wedding coordinator, and she was absolutely wonderful! She went above and beyond with every aspect of our wedding. She was always so responsive, patient, and sweet. The weeks leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself were so much less stressful with Kelly's help. She thought of things that I would have completely overlooked! We had a problem with one of our vendors and had to cancel their services the day before the wedding. Kelly was extremely supportive and even offered to do the canceling for us. She helped us find a solution that ended up being better than it would've been with the previous vendor! Everyone had nothing but good things to say about Kelly. Thank you so much for helping turn our dream wedding into a reality! We are so happy that we went with A Bride's BFF!!!

I truly cannot say enough great things about Mimi! When our venue required a day-of coordinator, I thought we would be wasting our money. Turned out she was absolutely worth every penny - a steal for what she charges! Mimi started contacting all of our vendors a month out, coordinating everything behind the scenes without me having to be involved at all. It was such a relief in the chaos of the last few weeks to know that she was handling all of the details and that nothing would be forgotten. We had several of our other vendors compliment her and how she had been in touch with them in advance when they had never had a coordinator do this before. Finally, my Mom reached out to her about hiring a security guard about a week before. Mimi went ahead and found someone incredibly reliable without my Mom having to research whatsoever. I cannot express how at ease this made my entire family feel. If you need a coordinator, look no further - seriously! Our day could not have gone so perfectly if not for Mimi!
