Brooke (and her 2nd Bee Debbie, aka Blondie) were absolutely AMAZING! Our wedding day on 12/30 was a dream and it wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without the Bees. From the very beginning when we met Brooke, she made us feel so comfortable and was so quick to offer tips and assistance needed while planning. She made sure to make a very detailed timeline (close to 20 pages) and was able to send it out to all of our vendors to ensure no details were missed. When it came to the rehearsal, Brooke was able to handle our large and LOUD 20 person bridal party so seamlessly...and was so good with our little flower girl and ring bearer, making them feel so special and excited to walk down the aisle ! On our wedding day, it was so nice to know that my mom and I didn't have to worry about a THING! Brooke and her 2nd bee took care of picking up our cake, picking up our 200 doughnuts, setting up all of our décor at the reception during the ceremony and reception break, and even fixing the groom's pants that ripped right before it was time to start the ceremony. Oh and not to mention, we found Brooke in my parent's driveway shoveling prior to walking each bridesmaid out to the limo to head to the ceremony. Our whole bridal party loved the Bees and one of my best friends who just got engaged already said she 100% wants Brooke and the bees for her day too. Bee for the Day was worth every penny and we're so happy they were able to make our day so very special. THANK YOU!!!
Brooke was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. She was very responsive and organized, and took so much pressure off the day and weeks leading up to it. She was worth every penny, and my mom and sister were so thankful they got to enjoy the day too, since the Bees took care of all the little things they would have had too. So thankful we had Brooke and the Bees there for us from setting up, to holding the rings, to packing up the cars at the end of the night. They took care of it all and more! Can't say enough good things about Brooke and the Bees, they are so wonderful to work with!
Its been a few years since I've known Brooke but I thinks its time I wrote a review for her. Brooke and her team are hands down amazing!!!! From the first time you walk in her door she make you feel right at home! Every little detail of your wedding is taken care of, they have you covered!!! You will be so happy you chose Bee For The Day to be a part of your special day.
Brooke and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with! I was able to sit back and enjoy every moment of my wedding day and I do not think that would have been possible without this team. They handled every detail and made recommendations for things that I simply forgot about. Because of this team, my mom, mother in law, groom, and our entire wedding party were able to enjoy the day. We didn't have to worry about the details or timelines because they took care of everything for us! I am very grateful and would recommend them to everyone!
I honestly don't know how my wedding could have happened without the Bees! Brooke, Dani, and Kelliann were absolutely amazing and super helpful, the weekend of our wedding! We got married August 12, 2017, and the Bees helped with our rehearsal on Friday night, making sure everyone was on the same page and knew what to do. On Saturday, our big day, the Bees helped decorate our reception venue, made sure everything and everyone was on time, transferred everything that needed to go from the ceremony to the reception, and helped manage reception festivities. Most importantly, if myself, my husband, or one of my family members needed something, one of the Bees was almost always close by and could help with whatever was needed. Throughout the planning process if I had any questions, needed advice/recommendations, or just needed to talk through an idea, I knew I could contact Brooke to help. I highly recommend Bee for the Day! It was so nice not having to worry about anything on our Wedding Day, because I knew that were able to handle anything that came up! They are one of the nicest vendors you will work with!
We are an out of state couple and our day would not have been nearly as amazing without Brooke and her team. Leah and Michelle were a dream to work with on the day of our wedding and surprisingly, we ran ahead of schedule! Having BFTD made our wedding incredibly enjoyable and stress free. I can't say nice enough things about Brooke, Michelle and Leah. Thank you ladies for all you did!
The hours spent leading up to the wedding assisting my mom and me with decisions on vendors, logistics, and decorations really helped us stay on track and feel like we were on top of everything. I really appreciated Brooke's candid advice and honestly regarding which vendors to choose and how to set up the day - it all went flawlessly. I kept wondering how Brooke manages a business with so many weddings while we felt like we were their only client. Stacey and Tiffany were wonderful and allowed us to enjoy the wedding in its entirety without worrying about something going wrong or not staying on schedule. I loved the personal touch Bee for The Day brings (texting us, understanding our simple elegant vision, etc.) and cannot imagine how different our experience would have been without them. My husband and I had an unbelievable wedding weekend and Bee for The Day is responsible for a lot of it! I will continue to recommend them to all of my friends in Toledo and elsewhere because I think everyone deserves to have the wedding experience we did.
Bee for the Day was AMAZING. Best money we spent on our wedding day! Seriously, if you are trying to decide if you need a wedding coordinator or not - you do, and it must be BEE FOR THE DAY! Brooke and Debbie handled absolutely everything for our wedding day- set up, clean up, bustling dress, fixing bridesmaids dresses, boutonnieres, running out to get fruit for the cake that I forgot about until the morning of my wedding - I could go on and on. My mother and father were so impressed with the Bee's as well - they were able to truly sit back and enjoy the celebration with our friends and family and knew that everything was going to run smoothly - and when a few small issues popped up (unexpected guests, late guests, etc) Brooke and Debbie would fix it without anyone knowing it even happened. I would recommend Bee for the Day a million times over!!!
Bee for the Day was easily the best money we spent! Brooke, the owner, was one of our Bees and we simply would not have been able to relax and enjoy our special day nearly as much without their services. They did everything from manage vendors to remove a stain from my dress. They helped us pack up our belongings at the end of the night and wrangled our guests all day. It was well worth the money to have that peace of mind.
An absolutely MUST on your big day. Brooke and her team have mastered wedding planning and execution. Brooke is available as much or as little as needed throughout the planning process (she saved the day on a number of instances!) and the two bees present on the day of are incredible. They made the entire day flow perfectly. Would refer to anyone planning a wedding.
We should have contacted them sooner. They made the entire day stress free. They helped with the rehearsal, set up, pictures, food and drinks, unexpected guest, clean up. We didn't have to worry about where or when to be. Everything was taken care of by the Bee's. Always on top of thing and if something went wrong we didn't know about it unless we asked and they already had answers on how it was getting fixed. Love them and I don't think it would have been as great a night without them. Best Money I spent on the whole wedding.
Brooke is a life saver. Hands down, no competition the best decision we made while planning our wedding. She allowed us to truly enjoy our big day. If a problem arose, she was on her headset fixing it immediately. She was the quarterback of the team and made sure every vendor was on track. She turned situations that could have been a disaster into a minor blip (our whole wedding party got stranded by a broken golf cart minutes before the wedding and she got everyone back in one piece and on time, for example) Her being there allowed our parents to kick back and enjoy the wedding without feeling like they needed to help us because Brooke took care of everything. We debated a lot about whether we "needed" a wedding coordinator before we hired Brooke. I can say without question that the answer to that question was YES. You should hire Brooke, you will be a much happier bride if you do.
If you're on the fence about getting a planner let me help you; DO IT. It's worth it. The Bees will take so much stress and confusion off your plate. You use them as much or as little as you need them before the big day (looking back I actually wish I'd used them MORE). I know it seems extravagant, but seriously most of the vendors we used gave us a discount because we worked with the bees. When my train ripped before the ceremony, Michelle was there with a sewing kit to fix it. They had already set up things that I'd never even thought about (like a free shuttle from our hotel to the ceremony around the corner, I had just planned to walk... They were like "uhhh... No.") I never needed to ask, they just made it happen! I'll never forget the look on my husband's face at the end of the night when he realized how amazing they are. It was 11pm and we were SO TIRED. He said, "Oh crap how are we supposed to get all our stuff, the cards, and the gifts over to the hotel?" And our Bee chimed in, "Oh we loaded everything up and brought it to the hotel already, you guys can just head over!" His jaw hit the floor! I just smiled and whispered, "I told you they're worth it!" He was blown away. When I was sweating in my dress a bee with a hand fan appeared, when I felt a headache coming on a bee with a Motrin appeared, when I wanted to try one of our appetizers at dinner she brought a whole plate of them for our table! If there were any catastrophes (and apparently there were some snafus), I was none the wiser and as far as I knew the whole thing went off without a hitch. I was on a modest budget (16k), but I set aside a small piece of the budget and they helped me turn out a wedding that looked like 100k and felt like a dream. Seriously JUST DO IT!
Where do I even begin? Brooke and the Bees are absolutely amazing! I knew I had wanted Brooke to coordinate our wedding from the very start of wedding planning; however, I didn't think my mom would be on board with the price. Somehow, I think my mom knew in her gut that an extra pair of hands would make the big day easier on her, so we went ahead and hired Bee for the Day. It was definitely the BEST decision we made throughout the entire planning process, and undoubtedly the best money that was spent on the wedding! Brooke's ability to organize is nothing short of impressive. She made sure all of our vendors were confirmed and sent each one a detailed timeline of the day. On the day of the wedding, Brooke and Kim made sure every final detail was in place so that our moms and I were able to relax. It was an absolute blessing to work with Brooke in her hometown and home church, and I could tell she felt just as comfortable as the rest of our family did. Our First Look wouldn't have been as perfect as it was without her brilliant mind, as she was able to help to me find just the right way to pull of my grand surprise to my husband. Both my husband and I agree that even if things did go wrong during the ceremony or reception, we would have never had the chance to stress over it, or even know about it in the first place. We were able to focus on each other instead of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the day, making the day that much more memorable for us. Our parents, immediate family, and bridal party have continued to rave about Brooke and Kim simply due to their organization, kindness, and genuine care for the bride and groom's well-being during such a busy day. Thank you for making our big day better than we could have imagined! I will be telling every bride-to-be about Bee for the Day.
Hands down the best decision we made for the wedding day this past Saturday. Danielle and Elizabeth were PHENOMENAL, I could not have asked for more amazing bees. They took care of everything and I did not have to worry at all. Brooke was also amazing leading up to the big day! Thank you all so much!
Brooke and her Bees made our day perfect! I am so glad I used their services - it made my day run so smoothly and they were on top of everything! Thanks so much to Danielle for being so helpful and wonderful. I don't know what I would have done without the Bees!
Can I get an "AMEN, ALLELUIA" for Brooke, Rachel and Mary?!! I am not a detail person in the slightest but thankfully that is the purpose of the Bees! Brooke helped plan our perfect day down to the minute and Rachel and Mary not only executed the plan but went above and beyond! They think of everything and more!! Our day would not have been as perfect without Bees there guiding us, our wedding party, families and guests along the way. My one suggestion to the newly engaged is to rework your wedding budget to include the Bees to make your day flawless! They take care of all the little small details so you, your groom and family members can sit back and enjoy the day! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Bee for the Day, for making my wedding day incredible!!
I hired Bee for the Day fairly early in the process--mainly for month-of help-- and as the day approached, I was honestly wondering if I truly needed a coordinator. Now I can say it was the best money we spent on our wedding. I had no idea how much stress not only me and my fiance but my family would be under, but Rachel and Julianne put us totally at ease. It was so nice knowing that there were people there who had such in-depth experience with weddings--they knew all the right questions to ask and knew what we needed before I even knew. I can't recommend them enough!
When I started planning for our wedding, I contemplated whether we would truly NEED a coordinator. After speaking with Brooke, initially, I knew it would be worth it to keep stress low on the big day. However, after working with our Bees, Rachel and Julianne, I can't imagine what the day would have been like without them! They were absolute angels, lifesavers, and the essence of calm and collected. They helped us draft out a timeline for the entire weekend and coordinated with various vendors. Rachel led our rehearsal, asking questions and making suggestions to ensure the ceremony would be smooth. The day of they were all over the place - in the best way possible! Any time anything would come up, they'd smile and take care of it. We even had multiple vendors comment on how easy they were to work with and how helpful they were to have around. When my bustle broke at least 5 times, I'd turn around and they'd be standing there ready to fix it. I could go on and on about the various ways they came to the rescue.... By the end of the night, I couldn't even express enough gratitude for them. I was actually sad to see them go! I would recommend hiring Bee for the Day to anyone who wants to have a stress free wedding day - and Rachel and Julianne, thank you for being an absolute dream to work with!
First, let me just say Dani and Debbie were absolutely amazing! Dani was entirely helpful throughout the whole process leading up to my wedding day. I am really not sure how I would have survived the week leading up to the wedding if I did not have her help. I am a very organized person so to have Dani and Debbie there making sure everything was going according to plan and on time was a complete relief! It was such an amazing feeling to know that not just Nick and I but our parents as well, were able to relax and just enjoy our wedding day. Dani and Debbie both get a A++ in my book for how helpful and on top of everything they were. I will definitely be highly recommending the bees to anyone looking for a wedding planner! Thank you so much Bees, my family and I will never be able to thank you enough for everything you did to make our day as special as it was!!!!! -Nick & Kailyn Keil
Working with Brooke and her team made our wedding planning process significantly easier and things would not have run as smoothly on the day of our wedding without their help. Prior to the wedding, Brooke was very prompt and responsive to our communications and helped us throughout our vendor selection process. On the day of the wedding, Brooke & Elizabeth thought of every detail, made sure everyone was where they needed to be and from the time they arrived until the time they left, they made sure everything was perfect for our big day. They handled some unforeseen hiccups with grace, they had a solution for everything and we could not have asked for a better team! Brooke and her team are true professionals and fully helped us and our family relax and enjoy our big day. We would absolutely recommend Bee For the Day to any couple!
Best decision we made! We got married in Cleveland, OH. They are based in Perrysburg, OH but have a few Bee's that work in Cleveland! We hired Bee for the Day mostly for day-of stuff because I didn't want to be bothered with annoying things that might ruin our big day! However, they were so helpful in managing our wedding before that day. They met with me and put together a timeline for our entire weekend. They pointed out some things that we were behind on doing or things we might have forgotten about. A couple weeks before the wedding, they put an itinerary together including all of the vendors and sent an email out to EVERYONE involved in the wedding plans. They told everyone to contact them with any questions (which was nice because we didn't need to deal with logistical things). They charged us fairly for the work they did. I would recommend them to anyone.
SPECTACULAR!!Reviewed on 1/02/2015 Natalie M
Brooke and Debbie are angels sent from heaven!! I was so against having a wedding planner but then these two fabulous ladies walked into my life and I have no idea how I would've gotten married without them!!! There are not enough words to describe how amazing they were!! They made sure everything ran on time, took care of all the little details so I wouldn't be stressed out, and they were actually able to keep me calm for the wedding!! They were so much fun and easy to get along with. I truly felt after that day like we were family!! You will not regret hiring them for one second I promise you!! Even my photographers, videographer, and band said how on the ball they were!! Loved them!!!
Couldnt have done it without them!!!Reviewed on 11/21/2014 MacKenzie L
I can't even imagine how my wedding would have turned out with out the Bees!!! They helped with everything from the smallest details that I never would have though of to the big things that we couldnt have done on our own. They allowed my special day to run perfectly and I know it wouldnt have been so incredible without them!!
Couldn't have done it without them!Reviewed on 11/19/2014 Molly L
Hiring the Bees for my wedding day was the best decision I made in the planning process! Words cannot begin to describe how valuable the Bees were for me, my husband, our families, our wedding party, all guests and other vendors. Dani and Allison answered every question and addressed every concern I had throughout the entire process and especially on my wedding day. The Bees think of things that I would never think of myself, such as extra toothbrushes for bridesmaids or strategically placing tissues in my floral arrangements for the ceremony. Allison filled in for the photographer's assistant when she got lost and, when I forgot my list of setup directions for the gift and dessert tables, Dani arranged everything better than I could have myself! Amid all the excitement and chaos of our big wedding day, the Bees made me feel completely at ease. I couldn't imagine my wedding day without them. I owe so many of the wonderful memories I will always have of my wedding day to the Bees.
