Aleks, Bride

I am so happy that I hired Jen!!  Not only is she a super sweet, fun, and friendly person that I now absolutely adore, but she also made sure that everything went so smoothly on my wedding day. Including, 5 minutes before my wedding transportation was supported to arrive, I can got a cancellation notice. 

Jen figured it out and got my bridal party to the church and reception venue without a problem.  I had a lot of friends and family getting ready with me on the wedding day, which was a lot of fun, but it was nice for everyone to focus on their beauty while Jen was making sure that I was drinking enough water and eating lunch, while she moved my car and made sure that my ‘Just Married’ sign was ready to go. 

About 25 minutes before the church ceremony started, my maid of honor realized that she had left her heals at my house and had arrived at the church in her flip flops. 

I asked Jen to run back and get them; Jen kindly obliged and came back with plenty of time to spare.  Our wedding day was amazing and one of the best days of our life for my new husband and I. 

I am so happy that Jen was there to share in it and ensure that the day was stress-free!

Brynn, Bride

You might be thinking, like I did, how sad is it that I have to pay someone to be my bridesmaid? Stop that Negative Nancy train of thought. Paying Jen Glantz to be your Bridesmaid for Hire will be the best money you spend on your wedding.

If you are anything like me, a 30-something year old professional whose friends and sister are all busy being moms and/or professionals and/or living out of state, you need the help.

Truth be told, your wedding party will want to execute the wedding of their dreams not yours. Your mother or your mother in law will drive you insane.

If you don’t have a therapist, Jen Glantz will serve that role for you, and happily.  Throughout my wedding planning process, it was therapeutic for me to word vomit my thoughts (read: anxiety attacks) to her via email.   

Things will go wrong on your wedding day that you do not foresee and cannot anticipate. My 60 year old mother realized she forgot to bring her bra once we were mere hours away from the ceremony. No really. It’s true. Like the saint from the heavens that she is, Jen Glantz had a spare bra. In her freggin’ fanny pack.

Jen is a cute, stylish, girly, cool, funny chick. She is the kind of lady you want on your side for your wedding, or just on your side in general.  In sum, run, don’t walk to Jen Glantz.

Anne, Bride

Jen has been professional, warm, friendly, thoughtful, and considerate from day one. She is like your friend who also happens to be a wedding pro so you ask her to please please please help out to make sure you and everyone else in your wedding party knows what to do or how to solve the inevitable hiccups that will happen when you have that many people working and partying together.
Then she shows up, and she has all the answers to every question you have, she is that member of the wedding party who is able to run back to your hotel room to get something you forgot while everyone else needs to stay with you because you are doing photos.
She is so sweet, and she will check in with your parents to make sure they are doing well, and will chat with them like they are your friend, not just another wedding vendor.
One of my Maids of Honor personally told me after the wedding how much pressure and stress it took off her being able to work with Jen.
I was a guest at my own wedding. I also got to EAT at my own wedding thanks to Jen checking in with me when I wanted more food. What a wonderful person, and we are so grateful Jen was there on our wedding day. Thank you Jen!

Jenn, Bride

Having Jen was, simply put, the greatest thing I “planned for” on our wedding day. She MADE OUR DAY in every way possible. Not only did she think of everything (or take on tasks when she wasn’t asked to), she did it in the most positive way possible. She was a total joy to be with. 

Jen and I had a few (amazing and EASY) chats before the wedding. She completely understood our vision and totally went for it. Jen just GETS IT.  She handled our food delivery and set-up during prep, making sure everyone in the wedding party had what they needed to eat and stayed hydrated (both with champagne and water!). She kept us on schedule according to my timeline but was flexible when asked. She was never overwhelmed and kept cool, calm and collected throughout the day!

There was nothing she couldn’t handle. She assisted with flowers and boutineers at the church. She even handed me my lip color every few minutes before the ceremony so I could keep fresh – so cute!

Jen went above and beyond – she carried bags, bouquets, flip-flops, change of clothes and other items for the bride. She was by my side, in the best way, throughout the day making sure all was perfect. If there was something that needed to be done, she was your girl. She made EVERYTHING she could as easy as possible. 

Words can express how highly recommended this amazing girl comes from my husband and me!

Jocelyne, Bride

From day one speaking on the phone, Jen was so kind and outgoing and really getting to the nitty gritty of all the wedding details. She dotted our I’s and crossed our T’s, and even made sure to cover things I wasn’t even thinking about yet! I felt so comfortable knowing Jen was our day of coordinator, because I knew she would handle anything that came up that day – and boy was I right! 
Looking back to our wedding, I still cannot believe just how much fun Connor and I had.. all because we were able to relax and know Jen had everything covered.
From last minute rain planning, to canceling, but then rescheduling cocktail hour, to setting up lawn games, and coordinating with my parents (who I can’t even handle sometimes), Jen really knocked it out the park.
Hiring Jen was one of the best wedding investments we made.

Rod & Buck, Grooms 

We were married in Central Park and Jen was there, by our side. Before that, I would email Jen saying, things like: where could we go for a nice breakfast the morning of our big day? or “Where could we go for dinner? What about some some pampering, you know, a massage? OH and somewhere we can get a shave, and  OMG we will both need haircuts and maybe a color. How do I choose a Hairdresser in NYC from Newcastle Australia?I didn’t………
I emailed Jen and everything I needed appears in my inbox!! We loved spending time with Jen.  
At the end of our wedding day, though we  were exhausted from floating around a big city we didn’t know, having just celebrated the biggest day of our lives, it was great to have Jen there to give us some more energy. Talking with her felt like talking to someone we’ve known for a very long time.Jen’s not just a Bridesmaid for hire. No. She’s a friend for life.

Steph, Bride

From start to finish, it was incredible to work with Jen! She knew what I wanted before I did, and she made our wedding 100% stress-free.

Caught up in all of the festivities, I forgot a dress that I wanted to change into at our reception in our apartment, and Jen ran right out to get it for me–no questions asked!

She’s detail-oriented, fun, kind, observant and not afraid to go the extra mile. (Plus she can tie up a French bustle like a pro in 3 minutes flat!) She was right there for me even when the MOH wasn’t and helped to fill in a lot of the gaps.

Hiring Jen was the best $$ we spent on the wedding! We LOVE her!

Nancy, Bride

My partner and I were planning an out-of-state wedding with various events throughout the weekend planned for over 30 people so we knew we needed help.

We saw Jen on the Today Show and thought we should reach out to her to inquire about her services but suspected she would be out of our price range. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that she was not only affordable, but that she was also amazingly organized, articulate and smart!

Throughout the planning process it was clear that Jen was a huge asset with our monthly call-ins, and her organization as there were a lot of moving pieces! Throughout our wedding weekend, Jen consistently proved herself to be worth her weight in gold!  We had several hiccups (including unexpected knee high grass and horse poop all over the field where our ceremony would take place in just 24 hours!) and Jen jumped right in and took care of business while we were happily entertaining our guests elsewhere. Our family and friends couldn’t stop commenting about how great Jen and her assistant were throughout our weekend.  We wish her every success in the world and would not hesitate to recommend her services!

Christina, Bride

From our first phone call, I knew Jen was the perfect fit. She is funny, a wonderful listener, experienced, and offers an objective perspective that I truly needed. She made me feel better that for this time frame, I could be selfish and focus on myself and my needs, something I realized I wasn’t doing. I needed to just complain without feeling guilty, worry without being told not to, stress and not be told there’s nothing to stress over.  I needed someone to acknowledge that it was OK I was having trouble picking confetti bags on etsy (this will be you!). 

Jen is also really fun to be around and talk to, which is what you need the days and months leading up to your wedding. In a short amount of time, I felt like she really understood what kind of person I was, which is priceless! She reminded me to be in the moment – something I’m usually good at, yet that quickly faded during wedding planning

Barbara, Mother of the Bride

As the mother of the bride, I knew the minute I met Jen that my daughter Katie was in great hands. She came into the hotel suite with a beautiful smile on her face and I never saw that smile fade all night.

Within minutes, I felt like she was either one of my or my daughter’s best friends. I felt so comfortable with her. Not only was she friendly, willing and gracious but she was confident and knowledgeable with weddings in general and Katie’s plans in particular. Her ability, skills and timing were impeccable. Katie had told me how easy and enjoyable Jen had been to work with and how willing and able she was to help her plan her dream brownstone wedding in Brooklyn. 

Jen helped Katie make her dream wedding come true and it was truly amazing! I would highly recommend Jen to anyone for any kind of wedding. Thank you for helping make the evening magical and I miss you already!!

Julie, Bride

Having you there was a huge relief. I’m not sure if you know this but my Maid of honor was recently diagnosed with cancer and was unable to do a lot of the things she was supposed to. I didn’t want to bother her but was so worried about how things were going to get done.

Having you there made me so much less stressed. You truly are wonderful at your job. I will recommend you to everyone!

Laura, Bride

Everyone always asks.. “why do you need to hire a bridesmaid?  Don’t you have any friends?”

My response is “yes, I have plenty of friends, I actually have 8 bridesmaids of my own”.  Even with 8 of my friends surrounding me, you can’t imagine how extremely helpful it was to have Jen there the day of the wedding. 

Jen and I worked together from the first month I was engaged until after I walked down the aisle, and she helped me with planning, timelines and lent an ear and opinions whenever there was drama, and there was plenty of it! The morning of the wedding

At the ceremony, she actually walked my dog down the aisle, I’m sure that was a first for her!  She helped unzip me when I needed to get out of my dress to pee, she bustled my dress so that I could dance. 

My mom and I were both so grateful to have her there.  My mom exclaimed at one point “Thank God Jen is here!”

Even my bridesmaids were grateful to have her there!  She was lacing their dresses up & helping with whatever they needed. 

You don’t hire Jen just to look pretty in your bridal line up, you hire her because she will make your day stress free!

Emily, Bride

As someone who plans events for work, I initially thought I could do all of the wedding planning and day of organizing alone.

But I was so wrong! 6 weeks leading up to the big day, I was so overwhelmed. And I am so glad that I found Jen, who came to my Chicago wedding from NYC to handle everything on the day of. She was amazing!

Our wedding was perfect and stress free thanks to Jen. She spoke with me multiple times leading up to the event and was so sweet and helpful with advice.

I had absolutely nothing to worry about the day of because Jen was there coordinating all of the details and managing many vendors. I would definitely recommend Jen and Bridesmaid for Hire for any bride – very worth it!

Amy, Bride

I came to Jen with a creative vision, a desire to do things myself, and a lack of understanding where to start with all the NYC vendors.

Jen listened to what I was after, helped me crystallize my vision, and quickly got me to a concise list of experts, with added tips on how to maximize my budget.

She saved me days of research, tons of money, and helped me get what I really wanted in this crazy town. Grateful to have found her!

Ruby, Maid-of-Honor

Jen’s MOH speech writing package really saved me a lot of stress and anxiety.  I wanted my MOH speech to be endearing and funny but not boring and awkward.

At first I was a little hesitant, wondering how a complete stranger could write such a personal speech without sounding generic.  

After speaking to Jen for the first time, she made me feel completely at ease and knew exactly the right questions to ask.  She really helped organize all of my stories the bride and I shared yet keeping it concise.

Jen is such a sweetheart and pleasure to work with and even allowed me to practice with her a few times before the big day.  The MOH speech had the perfect combination of charm, humor, and sincerity.

The Bride said I “killed it” and everyone loved and complimented how great it was. Even the Best Man stated he had to step up his game after following my speech!

Ali, Bride

I had no idea what to expect when my mom told me she had hired Jen, a Bridemaid for Hire, however I was more than pleased with every encounter we had. For my purpose I needed a third party, someone to help me organize and to vent to that would not bark back at me with their own opinions( which often is the case with your friends and family when planning a wedding).

The day of she was there to not to only help me but to help the whole wedding party, she put my mind at ease knowing that the tiniest of details were taken care of, from holding phones, to opening the church doors, to checking to make sure the ballroom was set up to perfection. Not to mention she is a pleasure to work with in every sense!

Will, Groomsmen

Jen did an outstanding job tending to every detail throughout each chapter of both the rehearsal and the wedding day. It allowed us the peace of mind to enjoy the event without adding stress to the bride and her bridesmaids who were so focused on everything being perfect. Jen provides a personal and professional approach that comforts all involved.

Everyone was carefree, which I’ve never before seen. For any bride and groom about to take on the challenge of creating the perfect wedding, the peace of mind you provide on a personal level is an invaluable trust fall that eliminates a majority of “The Big Day” concerns that can distract from the purpose of any wedding, the celebration. Wedding planners are hired to manage the hard goods of the event: cake, reception, etc. but every wedding could be so much more with your support and expertise.

Jen accounts for so much of the personal successes throughout the entire event. The best way of describing her impact on a wedding is a like skydiving… never before has the bride and groom taken such a leap. Without Jen there it can become a constant state of panic not knowing when and how everything works, ultimately wishing to survive and make it to the end alive.

Once you jump the wedding is going to happen and you will make it to the end, but it is about how you make it there. The experience is so much greater having someone there to calm your fears, knowing how and when to pull the chute allowing you to breathe, see each and every detail, and fully live the moment.

Rachael, Maid-of-Honor

Jen helped me find a starting point and help me better understand my Maid-of-Honor duties. I graduated college one year ago and just started working my first full-time job. The amount of work and stress I was under to fulfill my Maid-of-Honor duties and cross items off my to-do list became overwhelming. Jen was able to help me get organized and also do a lot of the behind the scenes research and planning for the bachelorette party and the bridal shower.

I turned to her to answer etiquette questions and to walk me through how to deal with other members of the wedding party with issues they were bringing to the table. Being a Maid-of-Honor feels like you just adopted a second full-time Job. Working with Jen once a week for three months, made that job feel a lot easier for me.

Ellie, Bride

A few people asked why I would hire a bridesmaid (even virtually) when a wedding planner would do the same things Jen was doing for me… My answer? Because Jen wasn’t just there going over lists with me, and helping me accomplish my wedding tasks, she was also there listening to the issues I was facing, and helping me work through them as a friend.
Jen is a friend, through and through. I didn’t realize that it was possible for me to connect so closely with a wedding vendor even though we have never met face to face.
She was there to help guide me through my seemingly never ending to do list, and was always there (either by phone or email or text), to be my ear when I needed her! Two thumbs way up! I would definitely recommend any of her services to a bride in need!
