Our prices are affordable to fit any budget!

Simple Elegance Designs are a full-service bridal consultancy, design and event planning group based in Dallas, Texas. From the dress to hair and makeup; invitations to fine linens and catering, we take care of every detail to make your wedding unforgettable.

Unlike other planning services that charge 10%-15% percent of the total wedding budget, we charge a flat rate based on the services requested in combination with hourly rates for any special services that we are asked to accommodate.

How does this pricing method work in your best interest? A flat rate means we will complete the work you ask us to do no matter how long it takes to do it. Consider it an all inclusive plan. Then, down the road, if you find you require additional assistance with other personal tasks, such as addressing invitations or scheduling a weekend get-away for two, you may simply add them onto your current planning package.

With our industry experience and contacts, we are uniquely positioned to create your memorable day for much less cost than you might expect. Many people believe wedding planners will only take away from their budget. We can save you time and money. We can help find vendors to carry out your ideas within your budget. We'll manage your entire wedding - or just certain elements of it. It's up to you.

Our promise to you is to make your wedding a reflection of yourself and your groom from the first time you realize you two were meant to be.

So, Fall in Love! Accept his Proposal! Let us plan your Wedding!

Please give us a call for you "FREE" initial consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.

Congratulations on your engagement! Now the planning begins!

Charlotte Drumgoole, CPWP
Certified Professional Wedding Planner

When my husband and I decided to renew our vows after 25 years I began to search for a wedding planner. I found Simple Elegance Designs online and meet with Charlotte she was very down to earth and she listen to my desires and vision to make this day special for us. Charlotte, Your creativity is beyond compare. The wedding and reception we had will be forever etched in our memories as the most beautiful day of our lives. With the small budget my husband and I had for this day you worked with a tight budget and made our wedding beautiful. You thought of every single detail and worked a miracle. It was so stunningly beautiful that it not only took my breath away, but our guests as well. The flowers were incredible, the altar was beyond belief, the cake was not only lovely but tasty, the food was great and the service was among the best we had ever had. You took care of every detail perfectly and made our time with you beyond amazing.

Hiring Simple Elegance Designs was one of the best decisions I made when planning for my best friend’s wedding reception. My best friend went to Las Vegas to get hitched and she asked as a gift to her and her new husband to give her a wedding reception at my home which I was pleased to do but I didn’t know where to even start to fulfill this request I wanted to give my best friend a wedding reception she would remember always. So, I asked around to a few church members if they knew of any one who could plan this event I was referred to call Simple Elegance Designs which I did with just two weeks before this event would occur.I meet with Charlotte and she took on the challenge and planned a wedding reception for my best friend without any hesitation.

Charlotte was an amazing source of information and calmness and was always available when I called. Charlotte handled everything for us. The only thing I had to worry about was enjoying every minute of the event. She had everything organized from design décor to catering amazing food and with the large guest count we had, that was a huge responsibility. It was such a wonderful feeling to turn the details over to her and enjoy the occasion.

I highly recommend the use of Simple Elegance Designs to make your event special in every way.

AA&E provided a gracious atmosphere for my baby shower. They were very professional and prompt and maintained a fun and entertaining environment the entire time. They remained well within the budget, while continuously presenting stylish and "outside of the box" ideas that made the baby shower one to remember. My guests were amazed at the various and unique games that were played. They were impressed by the beautiful color scheme (pink and brown) and decor. Many of them were floored when they stood in the cake line to be met with an unorthodox cupcake cake. They enjoyed the treat so much because they had never seen such a unique pastry. My guests were also marveled by the delicious menu which included deviled eggs, Italian style meatballs and shrimp pasta. Let's not forget the overabundance of favors. Those in attendance received six favors and each was very impressive and personable. The baby shower was a surprise and I had such a great time. My co-workers are still talking about how much fun they had. Thanks to AA&E, I had the baby shower of the century.
