10 Questions with Brittany Bartz

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hi Hi! I'm Brittany Bartz, but many call me B-Rad, thanks for stopping by! I have been the ‘go-to’ planner for as long as I can remember, from elementary school fundraisers to corporate events, following deadlines, timelines and celebrations are in my blood!

I started B-Rad Weddings & Celebrations with a passion for events, love for people and unmatched attention to detail. At the end of the day I desire to assist couples in planning and executing a celebration that is uniquely memorable and stress-free. Don’t believe the talbots, wedding planning does not need to be stressful! If you are someone who enjoys a nice glass of Kirkland Sangria, or just someone who wants a best friend by their side planning a celebration you will tell future generations about, you are at the right spot.

2. What's your experience as a wedding planner? How many weddings have you planned?

These services are available for B-Rad Planning Pro (most exclusive package)

Yes, we coordinate delivery, arrival and timing of all vendors.

10. Can you create a timeline that tells everyone involved in the planning process (other pros, members of the wedding party, to-be-weds and families) what to do and when to do it? How will you make sure everyone sticks to the schedule?

I prepare a wedding day timeline alongside the clients and the contracted times of all vendors. Once the timeline is complete I share a detailed document with vendors and an abbreviated timeline for the bridal party/family.
