  • From our very first meeting with Michael until our wonderful meeting with him weeks following our daughters wedding we have been amazed at him being a gift to us on many levels. Knowing that his expertise and patient demeanor were constantly available we were able to enjoy the process of our daughters wedding like we never dreamed possible. Michael's gracious and caring support as well as his timely communications allowed father and mother, daughter and son-in-law to thoroughly enjoy the months and weeks preceding the wedding. And to top it off the day of the wedding was simply amazing as Michael kept us on schedule and released us to enjoy the day. ALL details were beyond belief and our friendship with Michael continues beyond the wedding. Working with Michael and his team was by far the best decision we made in the preparation and actual day of event for our daughters wedding.

    Doug....you're killin' me! Thank you so very much. Coordinating your daughter's wedding, with such an authentic family was never a stress and always a joy for me...I'm glad you and Kimberly felt it as well! Oh what a night it was! MJN

  • Our experience with Michael as our wedding planner was simply amazing! He constantly was one step before everyone, planning the way and helping us make decisions. He was always a joy to work with and made us feel so safe as our big day approached. I am so grateful for our experience! Michael was a priceless part of our big day!

  • Eight years ago after shopping in NC and even a trip to Chicago and Michigan Ave which included a trunk show with a famous designer, my daughter could not find “the dress.” I researched places in KC and one of the places I wanted to take her to was Nolte’s. She has tried on some dresses when Michael Nolte came in and assessed the situation and said “I know just the right dress for you!” She tried it on and it was the perfect “bride” moment! Later when I was at the Nolte’s Briarcliff location feeling clueless, Michael just happened to be there and helped me find the perfect dress and accessories that both my daughter and I loved. Now eight years later I found myself as the bride and had let my busy job as administrator and teacher and the events and concerts I had to plan take precedent over my own wedding plans. I was panicking about my procrastination, and time was running out. I walked into Nolte’s late on a Friday very apologetic about my last-minute situation. I w... Read more

  • I experienced Nolte's Bridal with my niece, who is getting married in 2019. My first impression was with the personalization Michael Nolte gave us. He sat down with the future bride and had a detailed discussion about her wants, her needs, and more importantly, her budget. Honestly, when she told him she was looking to spend $3,000 on a dress, I thought "uh oh, here we go, he's going to start with dresses at $3,000 and work up". Michael did not do this. He was more concerned with the style of dress she wanted than he was the dollar amount she wanted to spend. He took the time to have her try on several dresses with several types of veils, and within two hours, she had found the dress of her dreams. Oh, and did I mention... he saved her a great deal of money in the end too? He specifically worked with clearance items in order to save her money, and the dress... OMG the dress was PERFECT! I have never had a better experience in my life and would highly recommend this bridal st... Read more

  • My fiancé and I were married at my grandparents farm. We were the 8th couple in my family to be married there. Michael Nolte was my sisters wedding planner and we hired him again. He helped me to find their vision for our wedding and include important family traditions. We worked with Michael on each aspect of the wedding. Michael had wonderful creative and unique ideas to make my wedding one of a kind. We used Michael’s preferred vendors who were all professional and reliable. He only works with the best in KC. Building a venue (our wedding was all outdoors) is a challenge and we wouldn’t have been successful without Michael. Everything was magical.

  • 2 daughters, 2 weddings, 1 location, 2 unique events. Michael Nolte was able to execute each daughters vision, sometimes helping them find their vision. We worked with Michael on each aspect of the wedding. Michael can ‘see’ the wedding & keeps the vision constant in each element. As a result, both weddings were beautiful. We used Michael’s preferred vendors for floral, catering, rentals, photography, lighting, music, transportation, & makeup. He works with the best & if his first choice is booked-don’t worry-he only works with excellent vendors. Without Michael I have no idea how we would have found & vetted these people. And our weddings were 6 years apart; Michael maintains excellent relationships with the best event vendors in KC. We needed the consistency & peace an excellent planner provides. There were issues but but Michael handled them-as a vendor said-‘don’t worry, Michael & I will make sure you are happy’. And we were.

  • Michael Nolte was the planner at my son's wedding. Even as the father of the groom Michael was unbelievably helpful. Great advice on the rehearsal dinner and venue. A true joy to work with and spot on with advice on every little detail. His experience was so helpful. He has to be the best planner around.

  • Michael Nolte is a creative genius, beautiful designer, and is meticulously organized. All wrapped into one to make an incredible wedding planner! We had two very different visions for our ceremony in one location, and for our reception in another. Mike integrated our theme and vision seamlessly into both venues and made us feel confident that we would not have to worry about a single thing the day of our wedding. Everything was coordinated perfectly and Mike managed the day like a seasoned pro - because he is! He also designed our entire reception venue and revealed it to us as a surprise on the day of. To say we were surprised and overwhelmed with amazement, is an understatement. Our day was more beautiful than I could have imagined and there is absolutely no way it would have been that way if it weren’t for Mike. What a gem he is, and we are so lucky to have him here in the Midwest!

  • As the father of the groom Mike encouraged and engaged me in this journey and helped me make sense of what was happening. His attention to detail coupled with support and guidance as well as a collaborative spirit allowed our families to experience a powerful and elegant celebration. Woven through all of this is Mike's creativity. Just jaw dropping, unexpected, delightful and stunning creativity.

  • None other than Noltes Bridal ladies….. This message is to all the newly engaged girls this holiday season. First of all-congratulations!! I wanted to share my experience with wedding planning, as it has not been nearly as stressful as I expected. I cannot take credit for this- I simply picked the right people to help me. It really all started with dress shopping. After our engagement I was visiting my family in Kansas City over Thanksgiving. Although we didn’t have much time, I knew I wanted to make a quick visit to Nolte’s Bridal in Overland Park Kansas. I want to stress that it was the ONLY place I booked to look at wedding dresses while I was home. I knew Nolte’s was the only place worthy of our short time, because two years earlier my sister found her dress at Nolte’s. Which, as it turned out, was not an easy task. My mother, sister and I excitedly started the day booked with appointments at bridal shops throughout Kansas City, however quickly became discouraged. A... Read more

  • It is difficult to put into words the level of disappointment and pure deceitfulness we have encountered with Michael Nolte. On first visit, Nolte is overwhelmingly engaged and sells you services and gowns that he simply does not provide. He sold me a custom designer gown, veil and earrings for more than $7,500 and when it arrived did not allow me to have my wedding dress. He strung me along for 11 months making me believe that he would honor his word. Then, just over a month before my wedding he refused to give me the gown, of which I paid the deposit and brought the rest of the dollars to pay him in total. He had me come try on the dress, told me it was perfect and refused to allow me to have the dress without signing a non-disparagement clause over his wedding coordination services that he fraudulently sold me. At the time we purchased the dress, he sold me a full service wedding coordination package for $12,000 and did not plan the wedding. He was a horrific wedding planner, of whi... Read more
