We hired Janice as our day-of coordinator and were completely satisfied with our experience working with her. We knew we wanted to hire Janice because she had worked my older sister's wedding in 2015. Janice was a tremendous help to us not only...
during the day of our wedding, but also in the wedding planning process. Janice even treated us to tickets to a Washington Nationals game as a "thank you"! She is extremely thorough; she reviewed each and every vendor contract we had to make sure everything looked good, and suggested changes when warranted. Her insight and knowledge of the wedding industry was a huge help! On our wedding day, Janice was there from the start and made sure the whole day ran smoothly; from getting ready, taking photos, transportation, the ceremony, and the reception, we had no problems and Janice was to thank for that. She brought two additional assistants on the day of our wedding to be sure all bases were covered because there were a lot of logistics to stay on top of. Thank you Janice for helping to make our day so great! We highly recommend Janice to anyone looking for a wedding planner/coordinator.

We hired Janice for her "month of coordination" and she was fantastic. Janice met with us a month out and again a week before the wedding. She made sure that all of the little details that we hadn't thought of were covered.

d meant to get a welcome sign made for our wedding and we completely forgot! But Janice didn't! She got a sign that she already had and had it done by a contact of hers.
On the day of the wedding, she and her assistant Courtney ran the event so smoothly that nothing went wrong. At one point Courtney called my now husband to make sure that he didn't come in to the venue at the wrong time and see me in my dress prematurely.
Janice was just perfect. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire her.

Janice was absolutely invaluable!! We hired her for “month-of”coordination, which was really more like “6-plus weeks, and also I’ll help you out by emails well before that!” We sent her all of our vendor contracts as we made them earlier on, w...
hich meant she was pretty up to speed on everything by the time we met up for the first time.
I tend to be super-organized as it is, and even still, I knew my husband and I alone couldn’t manage all the final details, coordination, rehearsal, and work needed for the day. We met with Janice twice, in addition to a final walk-through at the venue and when she ran the rehearsal itself. She was a pro through it all: whether it was our last minute changes (there were a few), wrangling the ringbearers, or calling back our florist to return with an item we needed that day. And those are only the parts we saw! I can’t recommend Janice and Bellwether Events strongly enough.

Janice is an amazing wedding planner and we were very lucky to have had her as our month of planner. We would have definitely benefitted from using her through the whole process, and if we were to do this again we would hire her for the entire ...
wedding planning and preparation period. Since we were planning the wedding from overseas, Janice really enabled us to have the wedding we always dreamed of with as little stress as possible. She was on top of every detail leading up to the wedding and also provided thoughtful advice throughout the process, she even procured our wedding license for us since we couldn’t be there ahead of time to apply ourselves. She also expertly coordinated and communicated with all of our different vendors. She was a calming influence both leading up to the wedding and during the big day since we knew she would be able to handle any curve balls. Janice allowed my wife and I to completely focus on and enjoy our big day without distraction! I would absolutely recommend her to any friends and family as well as anyone in the DMV area.

Janice is absolutely incredible!!! She went above and beyond to make our wedding day special and unique to us. Janice has the perfect ability to work with what your styles are and help add to the experience. She made the planning so much easier...
and streamlined for us as we planned our country home venue wedding. She is extremely professional, punctual and I highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or event in the area! Our wedding day had a lot of moving parts but I wasn't burdened with any of the details she handled it all expertly! Thank you Janice :)

Janice and all her staff were irreplaceable. They worked with me non stop to create a wedding that fully captured our vision.
