Kristi was amazing! We did Day of Coordination with her and it was worth every penny plus more. She found us an unbelievable florist for half the cost of anything I could find myself. She thought of all the small details I forgot (like a weight for the aisle runner!), which proves she has tons of experience. She also took care of all the mishaps, like our caterer being an hour late to the reception! With her careful planning and flexibility, the guests didn't even know anything was wrong!Sent on 05/24/2013

I contacted Kristi of Kiss the Bride Wedding & Event Planning only 5 months prior to my wedding date. She did an amazing job pulling it together in just a few months. Kristi was professional and responsive. She help with all the details including helping me choose bridesmaids dresses, flowers, invitations, catering and the venue. On my wedding day Kristi and her staff transformed my venue in to something greater than I envisioned. Without her this would not have been possible.Sent on 03/05/2014

Kristi has simply put, been nothing less than AMAZING! She is so passionate about her job it truly shows in her work. She dedicates 110% to her work. There is never a "bad" time for her. She wants nothing but the best for her brides. She wants their dream to come true! No matter the budget, Kristi will make your dreams come true. She is creative. She answers all questions in a timely fashion! She listens to your wants and needs, never forceful of her opinion. I simply feel blessed that she is a huge part of my very special day!!

Perfect day of but unresponsive during planning process
Since this was a destination wedding, I had NO idea where to start the wedding planning process. From the first conversation I had with Kristi/Kiss the Bride, I knew she understood EXACTLY what I wanted for our big day! She helped to find the perfect venue and vendors. Whenever we were in town, she would make an effort to meet with us to go over everything. She was SO sweet! However, she was very unresponsive during the process. It took about 2 months and 3-4 follow up emails and texts for me to get a response from her regarding booking the florist. I had emailed her letting her know I will contact the florist directly because I was not getting a response from Kristi. I felt like I was bothering her and understand she is busy, but when I would not get a response within 2-3 weeks, I was getting very upset! Honestly trying to get ahold of her was one of the biggest stresses during my planning process. I was worried things would not come together in time and I had to reach out to her regarding what vendors to book next and to keep things rolling. At that point, I felt like I could have just saved my money and did the planning myself! I had to follow up with her 2-3 times to even pay one of her deposits. I am not sure if it was just me because she has GREAT reviews but it was an ordeal sometimes to get a response from her. She did AMAZINGGG the day of the wedding! Everything turned out PERFECT and I was SO thankful for Kristi and the crew but I was veryyyy dissapointed and upset in the lack of responses!!Sent on 10/02/2019

I'm torn. For the most part my wedding turned out fantastic and it definitely helped having the aid of these two ladies. I hired Kiss the Bride for day-of coordination services. They helped us with the rehearsal the day before, created a day-of timeline, helped set up decor, and coordinate the vendors (for the most part). However, I did not get everything that I paid for. To start off with, they did not arrive on site until 3 or so in the afternoon. I did not realize that technically it was 'afternoon-of' services. Earlier that day I had numerous vendors calling me asking me when to show up and where to go. I thought to myself "isn't this why I hired day-of coordinators?" I was so busy trying to deal with the vendors that we were running late the entire day. I cannot begin to tell you how upset and stressed I was from that point on.Sent on 07/23/2015
My husband and I paid for almost the entire wedding by ourselves. Since our venue was not cheap, we opted for less decor that we originally planned. Through Kiss the Bride I paid for a bamboo alter with cloth wrapped around and a rose petal aisle. Come ceremony time, that rose petal aisle was not there. Finally, as my husband's way of showing he wanted to help with what he could, he made our guests a sign for them to know where to place their shoes. He also made a few games for cocktail hour, including ladder golf. For what decor we did have, I wrote detailed instructions for them and sent them over to the girls. Turns out that the sign was placed no where near where the guests entered the sand and the ladder golf was no where to be seen.
Overall while they helped significantly, I cannot help but feel frustrated. Their service was not cheap and I did not get everything I paid for. Perhaps they give more effort to couples that hire them for more than just day-of services.
