  • Caitlin and the team and Simply Elegant helped bring to life our vision for our special day. I can't say enough good things about Caitlin and the rest of the team. I am so happy we were able to use them to make our day absolutely perfect.

  • Simply Elegant was one of the best choices we made! I can't even imagine the wedding process or the day without them. Nadia is AMAZING! The expertise, energy and guidance from her during each step of the wedding planning process made our big day one that we will never forget. She helped us stay on track and organized. We still cannot believe how fun and easy everything was with them. There was little to no stress in the whole process! With Nadia and her wonderful team there on the big day everything was perfect, beautiful and stress free. They took care of everything and all the behind the scenes situations and decisions. My husband and I got to really focus and enjoy our day, our friends and our family! The best day ever! Thank you so much for your hard work and focus! I recommend them for your big day!

  • Day of coordinator = best wedding decision, ever! My recent wedding was absolutely amazing due in huge part to Emily and her assistants’ help! I received nonstop compliments from family, friends and our caterer about how smoothly everything went, and how extremely well Emily was at working with all the various friends/families and vendors. Her kind and fun personality (and organizational skills!) also put me at ease. On the wedding day the groom and I were simply able to focus on enjoying family and friends. I'd recommend that anyone have a day-of coordinator, and this is a great company!

  • Lindsay Mackey from Simply Elegant Group is simply the best. We were looking for a "day of" planner for our daughter's wedding so that we could enjoy the day and not be worried about the many details. Lindsay was absolutely outstanding! Lindsay was available for weeks before the wedding to answer any questions and walk us through the entire day. On the day of the wedding Lindsay showed up smiling, calm and happy with a detailed itinerary in hand which she made sure was executed perfectly. There are so many details you just don't think of, from getting the flowers to the correct people, getting the bridal party organized and on and off the trolley for pictures , making sure the reception space was as it should be , to providing the band with times for announcements and the first dances to so much more. Lindsay did it all and we were able to enjoy our daughter's wedding stress free because we knew Lindsay had it all handled. I have and will continue to strongly recommend Simply Elegant ...

  • One of the reasons I choose SEG over other planners was that they are amazing at getting back to you right away. They are also competitively priced and are extremely responsive and helpful from the moment you meet them. And then they assigned me to Gina, which was just perfect. Gina really understood my vision. We immediately hit it off and gave me tons of advice for my own planning. She was my "day of" coordinator, so I did all the pre-planning. But when we had our final timeline meeting, she was extremely thorough and helped me figure out the loose ends or gaps in my planning. This was terribly necessary!! After a day of getting ready on my wedding day, we arrived to the venue with everything set up perfectly!! I still felt in control of my wedding, but knew I had someone I trusted to look after all my hard worked details. While I had to reorganize a few things and made a few mistakes during the day (nothing major!), Gina took control of most everything and made it all a ... Read more

  • Kerry was a coordinator rockstar. She was so organized, professional, and on every last detail! She never made me feel like I was being over the top or ridiculous- she executed every vision I had perfectly. She had the most detailed timeline and kept us all on track during our wedding without making us feel like we actually were on a timeline. We had a wedding day that went smoother than I thought possible and I credit that to Kerry! Definitely a great investment! Thank you so much for helping us to create such an outstanding day!

  • Words cannot express how wonderful it was to work with Kerry Hollenback from Simply Elegant (Minneapolis location) for our daughter's wedding in June. Having an outdoor wedding at our home was a decision that had created stress in terms of how to pull it off with making sure that all details & contigencies were in place. Although we had debated on whether to hire a "day of" wedding planner, it was absolutely the BEST decision we could have possibly made. Kerry Hollenback was such a delight and communicated with us from the day we signed our contract. Even though we live in outstate MN, she made 2 trips to our home prior to the wedding & was available by phone & email frequently. She made us feel we were the only clients. Kerry was able to answer questions, provide guidance based on her experience with over 700 weddings, mediate differences of opinion (very tactfully), contact vendors, anticipate concerns, & recommend practical & affordable ideas. On the day of the wedding, she and her ... Read more

  • I worked with Emily and her assistant Caitlin. I'm so glad I went with Simply Elegant. It was money well worth spent that we were originally hesitant about. If I didn't have them for my wedding I know I wouldn't have had as great of a wedding as I did. They were like a little army the day of during the day. Always busy, and we received so many compliments on them from the wedding party and family. Emily gave me great advice leading up to the day and Simply Elegant steered me towards some great vendors I used (Warpaint, On Solid Ground Rentals, Nothing Bundt Cakes). The money we saved from using SImply Elegant made it actually much more affordable to have them. I can't say enough how happy I was to go with this company and how big of a part they made our wedding a success. We were hesitant on spending the money but my husband agreed after the wedding he was glad we had Emily with Simply Elegant

  • One of the best pieces of advice I received throughout our wedding planning process was to hire a Day-of Wedding Coordinator. Being a pretty decisive and organized person, I didn't need much help with planning our wedding (May 21, 2016), but as the big day approached there were SO many overwhelming details that I have never been so grateful for the decision to hire The Simply Elegant Group (Chicago location). I had the pleasure of working with Lindsay Mackey. From our initial meeting, it was clear she knew what she was doing - she was so friendly and knowledgable. About a month before our wedding (right when the craziness started setting in) she became very involved and helpful. We had a couple meetings (in person and phone) and she was super flexible to work around my schedule. We talked through all the details. Some very important things that I wouldn't have never thought of or remembered. The timeline and documents we created together left no detail untouched and was a great refe... Read more

  • Ashley Carpenter with the Chicago office of the Simply Elegant Group provided Day of Coordination for my May 2016 wedding. She was absolutely incredible to work with - and there is no way we could have done it without her. She arrived at our very first meeting completely organized with spreadsheets and timelines and vendor tracking. She gave me complete peace of mind leading up to the event, because I knew that she wouldn't let anything slip through the cracks. On the day of she kept everything running smoothly, but also kept everyone calm and was able to handle anything that came up and modified the schedule on the fly instead of rushing to try and stick with the original plan. Long story short - she was amazing and I can't thank her enough for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!

  • We choose Simply Elegant for my daughter's big day mostly based on the reviews we read. We had Ashley for our personal planner. I could go on and on about the professionalism, skill and care that Ashley displayed, but it is better said with one word: Amazing!!!! Not only did she do everything and then some to the utmost, she did it all with grace and charm. We owe her a multitude of thanks for making everything run so smoothly and efficiently (no small task for 200 guests) and I believe we have also gained a friend! I very rarely write reviews, but when something is this exceptional, praise is deserved and appropriate.

  • I ended up hiring Simply Elegant last minute for day-of services. I was having a destination wedding in Jamaica. The resort wedding planners were helpful when it came to selecting a location, band, dinner, flowers, etc. but less helpful with the details of the day and timeline. Lindsay Mackey helped us put together a timeline for the day, ceremony and reception. Also, the resort didn't do much for a wedding rehearsal so Lindsay managed this (which was a feat with my family). I was so happy that she insisted that we do a quick run through instead of just skipping it. Lindsay helped make sure everything was on track the day of and for a destination wedding this is not an easy task. Island time is real! When planning the details with the resort, photography was a challenge. I knew that I wanted amazing photos and wasn't getting warm and fuzzy feelings from the resort photographer. One night when Lindsay was helping me with the timeline (about 2 weeks before the wedding) I mentioned my con... Read more

  • Simply Elegant Group paid for themselves basically. We used several of their preferred vendors, this lead to great contract deals (saving money), and exceptional trustworthy vendors. I loved having a planner some problems that did arise on the day were solved before I even found out about them. My planner Nadia and her team really went above and beyond from start to finish. Nadia was always there to help me with little questions or bigger logistical questions. When my venue was being difficult Nadia stepped in to save the day, and made sure my vision was heard. My husband and I are so happy we hired Simply Elegant.

  • Nadia was great to work with and was very helpful in the planning and setting up the time frames for the wedding day. She was also great at picking up some of the last minute tasks I need to do the week of the wedding. A wedding planner would be very important if you had to coordinate a lot of vendors on your wedding day. As a bride - you don't want to worry about those details.

  • In our case, SE did not live up to the good reviews. Our planner was disinterested from the start and continually gave/referred us to the preferred vendor list vs. actually providing proactive help like we had hoped. We decided to part ways amicably but lost valuable planning time. Not a fit for us.
