“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.”
