Over the years, she built a contact list that included many of the city's top vendors and venues. Now, Michelle would love to use her experience, connections, and creativity to help couples design the wedding of their dreams.

    Bride of wedding

    Michelle right off the bat was so easy to talk to, she listened to what we needed for the day of our wedding. She is personable and also such a calming presence to have by your side on the day or your wedding. She was super organized and helped me organize everything with vendors to timeline, also picked up anything I needed last minute for that day. She definitely took off the weight for me to have to communicate with all my vendors. She also had really great ideas for the wedding day to make it go more smooth. She is also just such a pleasure to get to know and work with.

    Highly recommend - michelle is the best

    My wife and I used Bustle and Lace for our wedding earlier this year. From day one, Michelle was attentive, responsive and more than willing to address our every need (no matter how frivolous!). We hired Michelle a bit later in the process given that we had a number of things outstanding with only two months in advance of our big day. Despite this tight timeline, Michelle quickly got up to speed and independently coordinated with our other vendors to make sure that everyone was on the same page. Her organization skills and detail-orientedness made the weeks leading up to our wedding seamless.

    On our wedding day, my wife and I experienced what any couple wants for their big day - a fun, stress-free day creating lifelong memories with their loved ones! It’s safe to say that we owe all of this to Michelle! Michelle made sure that everyone was prepared and adhered to the timeline. She also exceeded expectations by incorporating special moments for all of the guests to enjoy. For example, my wife’s birthday was the day before our wedding. After Michelle learned of this, she ordered a birthday cake (making sure to ask me what my wife’s favorite flavor was of course!) for me to present to my wife, which was a highlight of the wedding! This was only one instance of Michelle going above and beyond to ensure that our day was special and memorable. Another time she exceeded expectations came when a new COVID-19 requirement was placed only one month out from our wedding date. The mandate required our guests and vendors to take action and Michelle handled all correspondence needed with the tight timeline. Whether messages we needed to send or information our vendors required from our guests, Michelle held our hand through all of it. We cannot recommend Michelle enough - she is incredible!
