Hiring Holly Davidson from Simple Elegance was an excellent decision in planning my daughter's wedding. I live out of town and my daughter was busy with her PhD studies so planning was difficult. To top it off, the engagement was quite short. From the beginning, Holly had a professionalism about her. Throughout the months of planning she was dedicated, responsive, articulate, honest, encouraging, tenacious--and she had a great sense of humor! Holly's many years of experience allowed us to secure a team of vendors that were responsible and delivered exactly as we had agreed. She stayed within our budget yet I always felt we were purchasing quality products and services. As the wedding approached and weather became a consideration, Holly transitioned to 'plan b' with great ease. Because of her professionalism and sense of calm, I was able to let her make these final decisions while I simply enjoyed the incredibly joyous moments. Even my husband, who was unsure of my hire, noted to friends and family that Holly was the wisest choice we could have made. As the bride left the reception she got one last tearful hug with Holly, who had become a friend. I strongly urge you to hire Holly as your wedding planner. Like me, you will be filled with gratitude and respect for her amazing abilities in her field.

Simple Elegance was such a great company to work with from start to finish during the wedding planning process. Holly Davidson, the coordinator I had the pleasure of working with, was organized, responsive and really listened to what I wanted my wedding day to be like. THANK YOU SO MUCH HOLLY...she created a day I will never forget!!! Holly was organized when it came to reviewing and considering our wedding budget. She was also detail-oriented and creative when it came to adding personal touches to the wedding. Everything went smooth on my wedding day and I believe it is because I worked with Simple Elegance. The vendors they recommended were on time and professional. I was not pressured to use any of the vendors Simple Elegance recommended, however, after meeting each vendor I knew they were the people I wanted to work with. Holly and I met monthly and I NEVER felt rushed at any of these meetings. When I had other questions for Holly outside of our monthly meetings I was able to reach her through texting, e-mail or phone calls with no problems. Simple Elegance has a great team of coordinators who genuinely care about your wedding planning experience. I would use Simple Elegance again for any events in the future. The decision to get a wedding planner (HOLLY) through Simple Elegance will be the best decision you make throughout the wedding planning process.

Well there are so many things that would like to portray in this review for Holly with Simple Elegance but I guess the first is a huge THANK YOU! As a wedding planner myself, I know all of the big and little things that go into a wedding day and honestly I did not worry about them on my wedding day which means the WORLD to me and all my loved ones around me. I know that things can really go wrong on a wedding day and even if everything has been planned out by two planners :-) Holly caught all of the little mishaps on the wedding day with grace and professionalism. I was very specific when it came to the items that I wanted her to take care of and she took the requests on with a huge smile. There is no telling that Holly made me and my loved ones at ease on the wedding day and there is no amount of Thank you that I can give her that is sufficient to that feeling.

Gosh, I don't even know where to start! Holly Davidson with Simple Elegance is nothing short of amazing. From the moment my parents, fiance, and I met with Holly, we knew we were in good hands. Over the course of our 15 month engagement, Holly was readily available and eager to answer any questions, provide great recommendations and make the wedding planning process fun and less stressful. She helped guide us with decisions because she is an expert in wedding planning here in KC. I was working full time and in graduate school during our planning time, and I can't say enough how much Holly helped make this busy time for me enjoyable and memorable. My mom and I looked forward to our monthly meetings with Holly, and she did a fantastic job helping us communicate and navigate our way with the vendors and ceremony planning. She attended most vendor meetings with us and helped our wedding vision come to life! Holly and Simple Elegance were always easy to communicate with, were beyond professional and pleasant, and the day of the wedding could not have gone more smoothly. When there were a few very minor things that went unplanned, Holly's feathers NEVER got ruffled, and no one had an idea what went on because Holly troubleshoots immediately. The best way I can describe our wedding day is that my husband, Joe, and I had the most magical day of our lives. (no exaggeration)This is due large in part to Holly and her staff ensuring our parents and ourselves were guests at our wedding. We didn't have to worry about one thing the day of and nor did our parents. We put our 100% trust in Holly and her staff the day of the wedding and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. As my husband said Holly is worth more than her weight in gold :) I would 100% recommend Holly and the staff at Simple elegance to make your special day all you can imagine. Thank you Thank you Holly and Simple Elegance for all you did! Love, Sally & Joe Pattison

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!

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.

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!
