"I used to think a wedding was a simple affair. Boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say I do. I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding is an entirely different proposition". (Father of the Bride 1991)

Patti & Melinda,

I can't thank you both enough for your help coordinating our wedding and rehearsal! You made our evening effortless and allowed us to focus on friends, family and fun!

Your ideas and answers to my many questions and concerns (and there were many!) helped so much along the way. When I heard the words "do not worry, it is/will be taken care of" I knew I could relax and it would be handled!

The night would not have been possible without your patience, understanding and hard work!

thank you

Thank you both so much for everything you did for me. I don't know where to start on how grateful I am for having you both be such a huge part of my wedding. I appreciate your hard work, devotion, and involvement in making sure that my day was about ME and ME only! I also appreciate your personable personalities and taking me under your wing from day 1. Your services will always be remembered by Riley and I. We are so happy with the way everything turned out. I know that I had a lot planned for you guys and you did everything you could to make my day go as planned.

I also want to thank you for making the necessary last minute changes to alter my décor to make it work with the rain. Although nobody wants rain on their wedding day, you did everything you could to make my day beautiful. AND, we lucked out and the rain stopped 2 hours before the ceremony. It turned out WONDERFUL!!


Thank you both, again, for working with me and making me feel so very special, from the first planning meeting, to my special day, you guys were NEVER shy of EXCELLENT.

They were always upbeat and so full of life that it made even the most tedious wedding tasks manageable. I would definately recommend them to a friend!

I can not compliment Patti and Melinda of Elegant Whims enough. We encountered some unforeseen problems and contacted them for help only 3 weeks before our son's wedding. In that amount of time, they were able to take a reception hall designed for 200 and turn it into a gorgeous, intimate setting for 50 (which the bartender exclaimed was the most beautiful he had ever seen the venue decorated). Since we live out of state, all the arrangements were handled with expert detail through emails and phone calls. Our son is blind and these ladies were thoughtful enough to include live plants for smell and a waterfall for an auditory effect. Their organization and responsiveness to our every question and need was amazing. They were able to tactfully navigate through some difficult personal situations both before and during our "big day" to make it a huge success. They helped corral toddlers, calm nerves, reassure young ushers, and move guests into position allowing the wedding at the church be flawless. At the reception, they seemed to appear out of nowhere whenever anyone needed something, including helping several guests in wheelchairs as well as my son get their food from the buffet table. They anticipated our each and every need before we even realized it existed. I highly recommend these lovely, highly competent women of Elegant Whims. With their cheerful, "can-do" attitude, they were able to relieve a lot of the stress and craziness that I was feeling with helping to plan this wedding. Five Star ladies all the way around!!! Please feel free to contact me with questions.

Patti and Melinda were so helpful in making my daughter's wedding so special and memorable. They handled the details so we could enjoy and cherish the day! We hired them for day of planning, but they exceeded our expectations, meeting ahead of time for planning, answering questions and making suggestions, coordinating and contacting all the vendors and even spot cleaning Alyssa's dress after a pre-wedding outdoor photo shoot. They were so nice and accommodating . They added to the joy of the day. I would full-heartedly recommend Elegant Whims to anyone planning a wedding!

Patti and Melinda were the coordinators for my son's wedding, and I can see why he told me they are two of the happiest people he ever met. They were nothing but smiles, at both the rehearsal and the wedding - professional, helpful, and attentive to all the little details that helped make everything go perfectly! I was so very impressed by both of these ladies and could not have chosen two better people to be a part of the Big Day! Elegant Whims is a gem!

Elegant Whims was the absolute saving grace for our special day. I could not be more pleased with their services. Patti and Melinda were extremely prompt with responses throughout our entire engagement and would email us monthly to check in and see if they could help with anything. The night of the rehearsal, they made sure all went smoothly and that the wedding party and officiant was moving according to the ceremony specifics my groom and I desired. On the day of the wedding they were extremely professional, polite, and encouraging constantly checking to make sure things were as I wanted. When the time came to walk down the aisle with my dad I was at ease and so confident that the ceremony was in good hands. My groom and I were beyond pleased and so happy that we chose to go with Elegant Whims. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for wedding coordinators or anyone who just needs the extra hands throughout the entire wedding planning process.

Patti and Melinda of Elegant Whims were absolutely wonderful to work with. My wife and I needed wedding planners to assist with the timeline of the wedding day since neither of us had any idea how that was supposed to work so we decided to hire Elegant Whims to take care of that for us, and we are glad that we did. From the very beginning they put our minds at ease about the whole process, and they pretty much took care of everything as far as the timeline is concerned, they even made sure that all of our vendors were on the same page as well. I was able to reach out to them via e-mail whenever I needed a question answered, and they always responded in a timely fashion which was a huge plus for me! They also assisted us in picking out a bartending service that had their own liability insurance (our venue was not insured), and the service worked out great, and it did not break the bank. On the wedding day itself, they were just as fantastic as they were leading up to the big day; they had to make a trip all the way from KY on Sunday (the day of our wedding) morning from another wedding that they were at so I know that they had to be completely exhausted, but you would never know it! They showed up ready to go, and made sure that everyone else that was involved in the ceremony were ready to go, they made sure that that ceremony and reception ran smoothly! I could go on and on about their quality of service, but I will end with this: Patti and Melinda truly care about their clients needs, and it really shows! Without them, our wedding day would not have been as wonderful as it was, and we thank them for that! I HIGHLY recommend Elegant Whims for anyone who is in need of a wedding planner!

Patti and Melinda are amazing people and are absolutely amazing at what they do. Elegant Whims is a full service provider, they went over the top to find us the perfect vendors for our wedding.

When we established that we were holding our wedding in Danville, KY, we knew we needed a wedding planner (as I worked full time in TN and my parents lived in Indiana- we new this was going to be difficult to plan). We had searched for a couple of different wedding planners and Elegant Whims was the most professional and passionate planners we had met. They take their job to heart and truly plan the most magical day of your life. Most of the conversation was though my mom and Elegant Whims, which take the stress off the bride! I preferred it that way, as I just relayed my ideas (mainly through ideas on Pintrest) and presented to Elegant Whims, who made it come to life!

I believe we were their first country chic themed wedding they had planned, and they made it seem like they had planning country chic wedding for years. I whole heartily believe that Elegant Whims can plan any theme wedding to perfection.

We highly recommend Elegant Whims. They were fun, happy, and a joy to be around. They made our wedding flawless and 100% stress-free! Thank you!!
