Lisa Forbes did a FANTASTIC job in coordinating our wedding. From giving us vendor recommendations, to setting up meetings, advising and following-up on every minute detail, she was flawless. We greatly appreciated all of her help and her kind, professional manner. Lisa handled things in a quick and efficient manner, and I was care-free during my wedding week and on wedding day. If you are considering bringing a wedding coordinator on board, I would highly suggest calling Simply Elegance. They are the best of the best and will make sure your wedding day is exactly what you vision it to be.

Lisa's planning skills were amazing. She found amazing vendors for us; something I never could have done. She was incredibly thorough and organized. It seemed like she was always one step ahead of us. If I called to ask about something, she had already handled it. We needed her to be flexible when scheduling meetings with vendors and she was more than happy to arrange her schedule to accommodate us.
It was very strange to show up for the rehearsal and then the wedding with absolutely nothing to do but "show up." Everything was under control and we had a fabulous evening!

After being a bridesmaid in numerous weddings, I thought planning my own wedding would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong! I quickly realized short after our engagement that I needed guidance from someone with more expertise than myself. We decided to hire Holly with Simple Elegance to guide us through the wedding planning process as we had heard she was great to work with. After our initial meeting with her I knew she and I would get along great. She truly was fabulous to work with! From suggesting vendors to fit our style, attending meetings with us, to answering etiquette questions, to tracking down a pair of tux pants the day before the wedding, she was by our side through the entire process. If you are thinking of hiring a planner, I would highly recommend Holly and the staff at Simple Elegance!

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Kindra Browne as our wedding planner. She made sure to give us plenty of options to pick from while keeping within our budget. We had the most pleasant experience and the whole team that Kindra put together went far above and beyond our expectations. The entire process was not at all stressful and we had a blast. The wedding night was completely flawless and one that we truly will never forget. Simple Elegance, from the very beginning, was the perfect fit for us and helped give us the PERFECT all around experience.

Lauren Kadel from Simple Elegance was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She was always responsive, professional and accommodating. She made everything seamless and stress-free on the wedding day and went above and beyond to ensure the bridal party had nothing to worry about. What's more, she also helped execute several surprises to make the day extra special. She didn't balk at any request and took everything in stride. I highly recommend hiring Lauren and the Simple Elegance team for insurance that your wedding day goes perfectly, as ours did with their help!

I am the mother of the bride, and met with Lisa Forbes at the beginning of the planning for our daughter's wedding in January of this year, for a September wedding in the Kansas City area. We are from Wichita Kansas and throughout the months of planning my daughter and I felt as though we were the only clients she was planning for! Lisa was organized in every detail of meeting with vendors, contracts, design, and final execution of the beautiful wedding day! Throughout the process she listened , gave good advice when needed, was professional and yet approachable with a warm and kind personality. She has a vast experience in event coordination and we always felt in good hands. I highly recommend Lisa Forbes of Simple Elegance to any mother or bride that wants the months of planning and ultimately her daughter's most special day to become the day you've always dreamed of for her.

I truly can't put into words how thankful I am for Lisa F. and all of her work she put into Brian and I's special day. From day one she was so organized, helpful and managed any tension or stress with ease. Though Lisa is a professional (and always knew the right/best way to do things) she ALWAYS asked my opinion and what we wanted for our day! No matter what! In situations when things got stressful (because they do and will!) Lisa was so tactful and handled any situation beautifully. I couldn't have asked for a more flexible, 24/7 wedding planner! As my husband said during his speech at the wedding "If there was a Marvel comic about wedding planning, Lisa would be the super hero!!" Hire her. =)

As professional Event Coordinators, my Husband and I didn't want to plan our own wedding, we wanted to enjoy every moment. But, obviously, I was extremely skeptical on finding someone who would do as great of a job as we would or would get our big production like vision that we had! I am sooo thankful I found Kindra!!! She was a DREAM to work with. Also, prior to hiring her, I did a few venue tours on my own and I would ask the venue contacts about her to get a little more insight and they had nothing but praise for Kindra and her whole team at Simple Elegance. So, I knew that if other industry professionals had great things to say, that I was on the right track. Also, being in the Events business, that meant that most of my guest list was, as well. So, our wedding was not a "typical" wedding. It was important that we brought a very "production" like quality to it, to best represent my him & I, and for the guests to really enjoy the day! Kindra did an amazing job of working with the other vendors to execute every little unique detail and create a "production". The only complaint I have about my experience with her is that now that Im married, I won't get to work with her again! :( Thank you Kindra for such an amazing experience working with you! Love, the new Mr. & Mrs. Breanne & Ryan Ewing! <3

As an out of town bride I can’t say enough positive things about Holly Davidson and the Simple Elegance team. I’m a busy bride in graduate school and my time for planning and lining up vendors was limited. She was a perfect match for us! Her expertise in the wedding field was evident. She was able to match us up with vendors that matched our personalities and our budget. Every vendor she set us up with turned out exceptionally.
Living in Omaha I was only available on weekends to meet with her and other vendors. She was always willing to meet for early Saturday morning coffee to plan and discuss wedding details. She met with my florist in person and video conferenced me in to make me feel apart of the decision making process. There was never a time that I felt she was not available by phone or e-mail to discuss even the smallest details.
After the vendors were selected and the details set Holly proved to be truly valuable in the immediate weeks prior to the wedding. A timeline was made down to the minute to make sure everything ran smoothly! Throughout the day she maintained a positive attitude and kept everyone smiling. My husband and I looked to her throughout the day for guidance on what to do next or where to go. We were able to laugh with her all the way to the end of the night. Holly was professional throughout the entire experience and I couldn’t imagine planning a wedding without her.
The next morning I realized there were things from my reception that I wish I had grabbed for keepsakes. She had sent a box home with my parents that included my bouquet, the wine cork place-cards with our married names, and special cards we had made for each table. She was always one step ahead of me in knowing what I wanted or needed to get done. I feel truly blessed to have had Holly as my wedding planner. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner in the Kansas City area!
