I hired a day-of planner as I planned my daughter’s wedding out of state in only 5 months. Alyssa is a phenomenal planner. She gets to know the bride and her vision for her wedding day. She is meticulous and had every detail covered. When the bride’s grandmother who lives out of state realized after rehearsal dinner that she left her dress at home, Alyssa was at the mall when it opened Saturday morning and picked up a few dresses to try on before the 11 am wedding. Sadly, size was the issue and there was not enough time to exchange but THAT is how committed she is to her clients.

Thanks to Alyssa and Simple Elegance I was able to thoroughly enjoy my daughter’s wedding and reception in Kansas City.

Everyone should hire a planner and I cannot thank Alyssa and Simple Elegance enough for all their TLC that made my daughter’s wedding day so beautiful, so memorable and so fun. They are KC’s finest!

Ask for Holly!!!

Hiring Holly was by far the best decision we made planning this wedding! We wanted to have the wedding at my parents house, but we had never had an event on the scale of a wedding there before. So we knew there was going to be a lot of different work involved with planning than if we were to hold it at a typical venue, like figuring out bathrooms, where the caterer would store food and how far apart tables would be. And long story short, we would have been TOTALLY lost without Holly! She has an amazing ability to listen to our vague and probably confusing ideas and turning them into beautiful realities. Even throughout the chaos of postponing our wedding due to COVID and then dealing with rain on our wedding day, she was totally on it at every step of the way. And on top of that, she is just a really cool person and it was a joy to get to hang out with her during our monthly wedding calls for nearly two years.

Also for anyone else who is considering hiring Holly (which you totally should just do now and stop looking), my biggest piece of advice is to listen to her recommendations for other vendors. Because she's worked with so many people in the industry, she has great relationships with tons of top-notch vendors in the area. When we were first picking our team, there were a couple of instances where I had found a company on social media or through other referrals that I was leaning toward hiring over the vendors she had suggested. She was never pushy with her recommendations and in the few cases where I did pick different options, she was totally supportive. But with most of them, we ended up going with her recommendations because we trusted her vision, and they turned out to be the best options we possibly could have had. As a bonus, some of them even gave us discounts because they prefer to work with Holly and her team.

All in all, working with Holly and her team was an amazing experience!! Our wedding was the most beautiful, magical day and we can't thank her enough!
