Wow, where do I start… First of all, I will say that there was no way that we could have pulled our dream wedding day off without Bashes by Barbie, just no way… Our wedding day was 40 years in the making, no kidding. So with that, my husband and I took three more years for our engagement period. There was a reason for that, if we waited for each other for forty years we wanted to hire the best of the best vendors. We hired the best photographer, we hired the best DJ, we hired the best baker, we hired the best caterer, we hired the best venue for our size of wedding. So naturally, to bring ALL of this together, we knew that we had to hire the best wedding coordinator and decorator.

Our wedding day was very complex, to say the least. Barbie was well equipped to handle every last detail, she brought in a bartender and entire staff to cover EVERYTHING. From setting up and decorating the hall, to flipping the hall and preparing it for dinner and dancing she and her staff did it all! She provided all of the beautiful flowers (and there were a lot of beautiful flowers) to coordinate with the venue management and all of the rest of the vendors, we didn’t have to lift a finger or a hand unless we requested another glass of champaign… Sadly, when our night came to an end, she and her crew cleaned up everything, again, we didn’t have to lift a finger. We just took in the moment.

With that, Barbie and her crew were always working in the background and yet always there to make sure that we and our guests were having the time of our lives. So you may ask what did Bashes by Barie do to go above and beyond for our special day? Going above and beyond is how she does business! Everything that she does is going above and beyond, she doesn’t know how to do mediocre… I would recommend Bashes by Barbie to anyone who is getting married or having a special event.

We recently booked barb and already we love her. From her free first meet to the occasional here and there, meeting with her is always a nice time not only is she well educated in what she does, shes well experienced and very helpful, she has a great attitude and awesome personality. We would defiantly recommend her to help you with your big day.

Barb was absolutely amazing! She was by far the best investment we made during the wedding planning process. Barb handled everything for our wedding day – flowers, linens, center pieces, setup, tear down, clean-up and day of coordinating. She constructed a timeline for the day of the wedding so that everyone knew where they needed to be and at what time. She transformed our reception space of this big open barn that holds 400 people, into a cozy, warm, welcoming space that didn’t feel nearly that big. She even picked up napkins for me the morning of the wedding because I had forgotten. There are a million tiny things that you don’t think about during the wedding planning process – and Barb knows what all of those tiny things are! The day of the wedding, no one had to both me or my parents regarding where a vendor was supposed to set up or what needed to happen, she just handled it without us even knowing! Amazing! During dinner – she checked in on us to make sure we didn’t need anything else, even offering to go to the bar for us to bring more drinks if needed! I cannot say enough good things about Barb. From the day we hired her, she was beyond helpful and always supportive. She even listened to my complaining about issues that were coming up between family members regarding wedding things and reassured me everything would turn out amazing. The flowers she created were absolutely beautiful. I want to carry my bridal bouquet every day for the rest of my life – it was that breathtaking. I will recommend Barb to anyone and everyone from now on! I can’t imagine making it through our wedding nearly as smoothly if she hadn’t been there to help along the way! Thank you Barb!

She made all of my bouquets & centerpieces for my wedding day. She also came the night before & set everything up for me making it less stressful for myself & Bridal party. She does a fantastic job at what she does. She is very professional. If you have a question she’s always there to call or text.

She took my order at the very last minute, gave me a beyond great price considering where I was at and what I needed. Worked with exactly what I wanted out of my boquets (colors and types of flowers) and provided the most beautiful boquets for me, my girls, flower girl, and mothers. They were were the most gorgeous and she was able to provide me with a real flower boquet… Something I was thinking was out of the question. She did her work in such a timely manner and kept communication open. Barb went above and beyond with her work. She was very professional and great to work with. Im so very thankful that we connected. I will always recommend her if anybody asks about needing flowers (or anything for their parties really). I was beyond happy with my flowers.

Organized and on top of everything!

Barb went above and beyond to make our entire day go smoothly. First she drove out of her way to Lake Michigan (our wedding spot) week prior to our wedding to ensure the beach that we chose was perfect. She brought all necessities and things I didn’t even realize I would need the morning of the wedding. She organized the entire event including setting up a beach front wedding ceremony. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. She communicated with lost guests who had difficulty finding the correct spot. There was apparently an issue with our wedding cake melting prior to our arrival. Aside from being a wedding planner (and numerous other wonderful traits!) she is also great with cakes we found out! She fixed our cake before we even knew there was an issue. I am so happy we chose Bashes by Barbie to coordinate our wedding day. She was worth every penny and more!

Both My Daughter and I Loved Her!

My daughter found this wonderful vendor for her wedding September.12, 2015 and trust me my daughter is very picky. Barb did a amazing job with the decorations. My daughter theme was baseball,and she made her bouquet with a bat it was totally amazing the hard work she put into this wedding was incredible. In June I myself got married , and it was a last minute wedding I called Barb and she was at my house the next day with ideas and pictures of what we could do. I had my wedding in our pole barn and I never got so many compliments on how beautiful it looked. I would highly recommend Bashiesbybarbie to anyone planning a wedding she does fantastic work. Barb put lighting with draped sheers in the rafters and used a rustic chandelier for the center, I had lanterns that added lightning to each table on wooden centerpieces, it was so beautiful. For all the time and work that is put into planning a wedding the prices are very reasonable. She is aways willing to put in extra time, to make sure your day is all that you dreamed it would be.

Barb is a Blessing!

Barb was so helpful when I was navigating the planning process. She made sure all the Ts were crossed and Is were dotted. On the day of everything went off without a hitch. This is what is normally expected of a planner, except that my theme was gaming and Barb made sure that there were game areas set up in both fun and aesthetically pleasing ways. She also helped negotiate between my vendors to make sure that we were able to have the correct power hookups, linens, and space arrangement for our game area. This included board games, video games, and yard games. She also did the decorating and used a combination of my DIY decor and her own expertise to make my venue shine. Barb was truest a blessing and my wedding surely wouldn’t have been such a memorable event without her diligent and flawless efforts.

Above and Beyond Helpful!

Barb Holz did day of set up for our wedding reception. She took time to meet with us several times, was always available to answer questions, and helped put together our wedding reception vision. She even helped us manage some last minute emergencies with another vendor that fell through and stayed late to help with this issue. All of our guests complimented her work and she made sure our guests were welcomed and enjoying the reception. After our wedding Barb stayed in touch and offered suggestions for months while we dealt with getting money back from a vendor who did not show up on our wedding day. This was above and beyond helpful!

One of the Best Vendors we Have Worked With!
5.0

Bashes by Barbie was one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding. Barb provided several different packages and was a wonderful wedding planner. We hired Barb for day before and day of wedding coordination. She also did the flowers for the wedding and allowed us to rent items from her. Barb made the day before our wedding and the day of the wedding completely stress free. I showed her pictures of the flowers I wanted for the center pieces and bouquets for myself and bridesmaids. She went above and beyond for the flowers and I absolutely LOVED by bouquet. Barb even came to my dress fitting and met us at the venue on different occasions, which wasn’t included in the package, but she attended all of the meetings willingly. Barb should win this prize as she was the best wedding planner ever!!! She was also always available by text and email prior to our wedding day. She made sure the venue was set up appropriately. None of my family, the groom, nor myself had to worry about a thing before the wedding. Also, the desert set up for the wedding to was die for!!! So beautiful!!
