When I was looking for a planner, I had so many ideas and decisions made already that I was sure I only needed a day of coordinator to ensure the day went as planned. This is what I hired Michelle at Bustle and Lace for but I was blown away with how much extra value I felt I got from her services. She was very thorough in making sure we considered every last detail of wedding planning and the day of to the point where I felt like she was our full time planner. There were several things that we just never would have considered that turned out to be important aspects of planning and she made sure everything went off without a hitch. From my first conversation with her, I felt like Michelle was a true advocate for us in every aspect and we couldn't be more appreciative. I would recommend Michelle in a heartbeat and would say she's a great fit for those of us who think we have it all under control, as well as those who have no idea where to start. She never overstepped or tried convincing me of anything, she only made sure I had the options and understood the details.Sent on 09/06/2020

Simply the Best!
Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work from start to finish. She helped us to create the perfect vision for our perfect wedding. She was nothing but professional and responsive. We had several meetings leading up to our big day. She was detail oriented and super organized, leveraging several templates and her past experience. She has a clear passion for weddings and guided us with great suggestions/ideas. She attended our rehearsal and our full wedding day. She was very communicative and handled all issues that surfaced with poise. We had the perfect wedding and owe it all to Michelle on the flawless execution. We give Michelle our highest recommendation!Sent on 11/29/2019

Michelle is incredible – she is well organized, responsive, and tailors her approach to the couple. My husband and I are so pleased with Michelle’s service, we woke up the day after our wedding feeling completely relaxed knowing the she had taken care of everything the night before.Sent on 10/21/2019
Michelle consistently demonstrated her organizational prowess throughout the process. We live in New York, and our wedding was in Chicago. We wanted to really customize our day and so that meant there were multiple vendors, and a few DIY elements. Michelle set up consultation calls to understand our vision and helped us stay on track to execute. She created a day of timeline and sent us a list of to-dos and decisions to make in the months leading up to our big day. She coordinated with all our vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and made sure each person knew what they were supposed to do, and when. On our wedding day, everything went so smoothly – I didn’t worry about a thing!
My husband and I both have a lot of questions and can get a bit in the weeds. Michelle was responsive and helpful – she offered advice and feedback when we needed it and helped us stay within budget. We would not have been able to plan our wedding without Michelle, and highly recommend her!
