Krisy Thomas and The Southern Sparkle and Event Planning team is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I HIGHLY recommend her wedding planning and floral services. I was blessed to see Krisy working her magic at my cousin’s wedding and I knew right then that I NEEDED her to plan my daughter’s wedding. I look back and think ” I don’t know what we would’ve done without her! Now, I feel like she is a part of the family. My daughter’s wedding took place at the Hermitage Hotel and from the beginning to the end EVERYTHING was flawless. We did not have to worry about one thing. Krisy is so professional, organized and she is so knowledgeable about the vendors, venues and what is the best for the bride! If Audrianna needed anything or if she had a vision she made it happen. Audrianna wanted a fresh flower wall at the reception and Krisy made it happen!!! The centerpieces and ALL of Audrianna’s bouquets were hand made by Krisy and the Southern Sparkle team! The flowers were so fresh and vibrant and the aromas from the flowers was just heavenly. Any event from this day forward that I need to plan I will go straight to Krisy for all of my party planning needs! She is worth her weight in gold! The services and the florals that Krisy made happen for my daughter’s special day was invaluable. Krisy ensured that my daughter had absolutely no worries on her wedding day! That is exactly the way it should be. Krisy me and my family are forever grateful and blessed that you were apart of Audrianna’s wedding experience and for making her wedding day phenomenal! We love you! Deana (Mother-of-the- Bride)
I cannot tell you how amazing Krisy and her team were. Starting for the very first day I spoke with her, Krisy was always very quick to respond and answered any questions I had. Krisy was so easy to get along with, and quickly understood the style and look I wanted for my wedding day and knew exactly how to help make it become a reality! I originally just purchased a small package, but I quickly realized my mother and I would need help decorating! Krisy was very flexible with adding decorating to my package, and I am so happy I did! The Southern Sparkle team took exactly what I had always dreamed of (and my pinterest 🙂 ) and decorated both my reception and ceremony venues!
My entire wedding day was amazing. I was able to enjoy the whole day with my mother, sister, and bridesmaids without having a single worry. I didn’t worry about the time, or making phone calls, or worry where someone was. All of my girls were able to enjoy the entire day by my side, while I spent the day with my groom! Anything I needed throughout the day the Southern Sparkle Team was there!! I owe these women everything for giving me the best day of my life! I am sure some things went wrong, they always do on weddings days, but I never noticed. Krisy and her professional team made our day flawless in my eyes! She is a great friend and planner and anyone using her is a very lucky bride! – Katie
Southern Sparkle was the only wedding planner out of the four that I called that made me feel like they cared about my day. I was having a destination wedding in Tennessee and knew I couldn’t plan it alone. Even though Krisy had already booked another wedding on my date, she helped me plan my whole wedding and setup a team for the day of. The sparkle team took all of the stress off of planning down to the table runners. I don’t think I could have pulled it off on my own. They have many great contacts in the industry of caterers, photographers, etc. I loved that I was a sparkle bride! My day was perfect from my man to the weather to the great company of our family and friends! Thanks again Sparkle Team! – Tara A.
I do not have enough space to write all of the good things I have to say about SSWEP! From our very first conversation, Krisy was always the utmost professional and truly listened to what I envisioned for my wedding instead of pushing what’s traditional or trendy at the moment. Being from out of town, I had no idea where to turn for my wedding and had given up on on having a ceremony after talking with other local planners, but Krisy was so knowledgeable during our first initial meeting that I knew immediately she would be my planner–if she’d have me! 🙂 I literally had the wedding of my dreams–the most beautiful, romantic autumn wedding that exceeded all of my expectations! Not only did SSWEP plan my wedding but they also provided my floral arrangements and besides being gorgeous, they were reasonable AND full—much fuller than many arrangements I saw at other floral shops! The flowers just blew me away! I could not describe to you how invaluable it was for me and my family on the day of my wedding to do literally nothing but get dressed and enjoy the day. SSWEP took complete charge of my day including the not-so-fun after wedding clean-up–I repeat I can’t explain how important it was for me to just relax and leave everything in their hands. Believe me brides, you want to enjoy every moment of the day and not worry about the caterers or if the cake is sliding away or are there enough chairs…don’t go through with that!! Get you a planner sweetheart!! Don’t do it to yourself! You and your love have been waiting for this precious day and you deserve to feel amazing and just be present in the moment! It is so worth it–you are so worth it! If you have doubts, just go for it. Krisy, Jennifer and her staff are amazing! Oh…and I suggest you book quickly because these ladies are popular and their available dates fill up fast. Best of luck with your wedding and you’re in gifted and blessed hands! – Cher W.
I wish that I could attach a photo to a review.After sitting down on a slate bench that was under the arch my florist built for the ceremony, Krisy and her mother noticed that there were blue spots where I’d sat on some privet berries. Out came the club soda and wash cloths, and the evidence of calm, cool, at-ease professionals. And the whole time I was smiling because they had it all under control.I hired Krisy because of her ease of spirit and because I didn’t know anyone in my own life who was just as obsessed with details as I am. Krisy was that and more. I hired her for day-of coordination services, and she went above and beyond for my wedding. I planned my Memphis wedding from my current home in Washington, DC, and she was so responsive with email. The day of the event, I literally did not have to think of one thing. I just got to relax, enjoy all of the gorgeous work I’d done to plan, and bask in all of the love and joy that was there. Possibly the best investment I made for my wedding.Krisy and team: thank you SO much for your hard work! We’ll miss seeing y’all around. – Katie S.
There is so much I could write about Krisy and Brooklyn. I should start by saying that I have been married before and did not hire a planner and had to deal with LOTS of mishaps on my wedding day. This time, I knew I didn’t want that, so I budgeted for a day-of coordinator. Krisy and I went to college together so we were connected via social media so I had long been seeing all the great things she was doing with her new(ish) business. When it came time to find a coordinator, she was my first call. Not only was she VERY reasonable compared to others I had seen, she was a month-of coordinator instead of just day-of, which allowed me to really enjoy those last few weeks before the wedding. She was extremely responsive, connected with all my vendors and was there for every little question (and freak out, sorry Krisy!) that I had leading up to the big day. When the day came, everyone in my bridal party commented on how great Krisy and Brooklyn were to work with as they had all been in weddings with the “evil wedding planner.” Krisy could not be farther from that. She is kind, doting and professional and we laughed a lot! The true testament to her ability and greatness is that while my husband and I were leaving to head out of the country for our honeymoon, Krisy was waiting for our rentals vendor (think all the tables, chairs, etc.) to be picked up. The truck driver had been in an accident and Krisy was waiting and waiting for them to arrive and trying to contact them. When she was unable to, she located a contractor that had worked with our vendor to come pick up the items and all the while never called us because she didn’t want to stress us out. She did finally tell us about the hiccup the next morning, but she handled everything like the utmost professional and was never panicked or seemed stressed (even though, I’m sure she was at 2 am) I can’t sing her praises enough. Krisy and Brooklyn, I love you. Thank you for making our wedding day spectacular! – Jen W.
Krisy and her team were AMAZING. I’m so thankful I had them there on our big day and during the planning process. For me, wedding planning was stressful. I was working full time and had just moved to a new city. Krisy offered great advice, comfort and help through my stress. She took all the pressure off me the day of. One of her assistants even went and picked up breakfast for me and my bridesmaids that morning! It’s the little things that really add up to what a great experience working with her was. She was always calm and always giving 100%.
Working with Southern Sparkle is a great price for all the service you receive. I highly recommend them! – Elizabeth M.
I honestly do not know what I would have done the day of my wedding without Krisy and the Southern Sparkle Team! They are absolutely the best, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is getting married. I hired them for the “month of” package so I was able to do all the pre-planning. Once the month of came along, I was able to hand over everything and trust it would all come together as planned…and it did!! It was the Best Day EVER! – Merrilee T.
So organized! Krisy & her assistants are amazing – friendly, professional, & made my wedding 1000% better & easier! I don’t know what I would have done without them! – Erica A.
5 stars for everything for this amazing team of professionals!! Since I’ve known Krisy since I was in kindergarten, I knew she was my coordinator from the get go. My beautiful lakeside reception would not have been as beautiful as it was if it wasn’t for Southern Sparkle! She was so organized and had everything under control that I would have never thought about! I love that as the bride I didn’t have to worry about anything on my big day! It was so fun that it’s a family affair for them. Her mother, Ms. Jennifer, is a design wizard and her sister, Brooklyn, is so sweet and kept us in line at the ceremony and everybody pitched in all day including Krisy’s husband, Chris! My mother is still raving about how great they were. She got to enjoy the day and not worry like me! Southern Sparkle is exactly what their names says, southern with a lot of sparkle that shows in the events they pull off!! – Monica W.
One of the best decisions I made for my big day was using Southern Sparkle. Krisy and her team were awesome! They took so much of the stress off my mom and I. They were so organized and always on task while always being calm and kind. Krisy made sure all the vendors were on the same page and made sure everything was running smoothly. I really can’t say enough good things about Krisy and her team. I highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding! – Kristen W.
One of the best decisions made throughout the wedding planning process was hiring Krisy Thomas and Southern Sparkle Wedding & Event Planning! Not only was she incredibly professional and helpful with decisions, but she and her team were a joy to work with! I will recommend her to all of my friends and look forward to working with her again in the future. – Robyn H. – Mother of the Bride
Words truly cannot express how much my Husband and I appreciate all the work Krisy with Southern Sparkle and her team put into our wedding day. Even a year later we are always reminiscing on all the wonderful memories from our special day! And none of that could have been possible without Krisy and her fabulous team! When my Husband and I got engaged and started the wedding planning process, we knew our wedding was going to be a larger wedding. And to us that was so overwhelming, but exciting all at the same time! And when it came time to plan the wedding and pick vendors, Brooks and I knew that our number one goal was for our immediate family to be able to relax and enjoy our special day, not running around planning or decorating the days before or the day of the wedding! That is where Krisy and her team came in. From our first meeting with Krisy, we both knew she was going to be a wonderful asset to our wedding planning…and she didn’t disappoint! All the wedding details were taken care of flawlessly by Krisy and her team on the day of our wedding. And we can’t even tell you all how amazing she was in the weeks and months of planning up to the wedding. Even living two hours away from us, Krisy was present in every step of our planning! We could not have had a better wedding vendor or planner like Krisy and the team from Southern Sparkle. Hiring a wedding planner was the BEST decision we ever made when it came to our wedding day! And fast forward a year later, we still have a wonderful friendship with Krisy and her team! Thank you to Krisy and the team at Southern Sparkle for making the Shaw/Seals wedding day a dream come true! – Brooks & Megan
I cannot express how wonderful Krisy and the Southern Sparkle team were during the wedding planning process and the big day! Krisy met with my fiancé, our mothers, and me to see if we even needed a wedding planner. I didn’t see the importance of one at first and I’m so glad I was encouraged to meet with Southern Sparkle. After a stress-free planning process and wedding day, I can say Southern Sparkle was my most prized wedding vendor. I couldn’t have done anything without them. Krisy was available via email 24/7 and was very prompt in responding and helping me. She made numerous timelines during the process to be sure I had everything to make my wedding day perfect. Krisy lives 2 hours from where my wedding location was, but she was flexible in meeting me whenever I needed to discuss details of the wedding. The wedding process was smooth and was just a sneak peek of how amazing my wedding day would be! Krisy made a timeline for the weekend so all vendors and wedding party members knew where to be and when. No one had to worry about what was happening! I was able to enjoy the day with everyone because I wasn’t hunting down the caterer or giving the DJ directions to the venue. Krisy and her team made sure every little detail was taken care of. I knew my wedding day would be one I would never forget, but with Southern Sparkle, I can honesty say it was the most perfect day! If I had to do it all over again, I would do it all the same. Thank you Southern Sparkle for making this girls dreams come true!! – Brittney C.
Krisy Thomas and her professional staff made our wedding day exactly how we wanted it, PERFECT! I never once worried about anything she took care of everything. I had Krisy just as my day of coordinator, but she was with me every step of the way if I had any questions to what I had planned for my special day she answered them very quickly through phone calls, emails, and texts. I would definitely recommend Krisy for all your wedding needs. She goes above and beyond her duties! She made our day stress free and just how we wanted it! Thank you Krisy and staff at Southern Sparkle Wedding and Even Planning for everything that you did for us! – Rachel M.

On the day of, if something went wrong I didn’t know. They were on top of everything! From setting up to directing they are wonderful! I highly recommend them! – Hope A.
Krisy and her team were amazing. I was planning a wedding from out of state and she did a great job recommending local vendors. Even though she was technically only a month-of coordinator for my wedding, she was available anytime I needed her along the way. I can’t say enough good things about her team on wedding day. I literally did not worry about one thing and everything turned out exactly how I had envisioned it. She will absolutely give you a beautiful (and stress-free) wedding day! – Megan P.
Krisy and her team were fabulous!!! I didn’t quite know what to expect from a wedding planner but she fulfilled everything and plus that I needed during planning, before the wedding, during and after. She is organized and loves what she does. It being a family business makes the experience more personal too and I loved that. – Katie S.
I cannot thank Southern Sparkle enough for the work prior to and day of event. I always got replies from phone calls and emails promptly. I was able to enjoy the wedding festivities with our daughter and bridal party due to having Krisy and her team to take over for me. Rehearsal was organized and wedding went wonderful. I had complete trust and faith in Southern Sparkle and I high would recommend them to anyone looking for event/wedding planner. – Mitzi S. (Mother of the Bride)

I HIGHLY recommend them for any event that you may be planning!!! – Haley G.
I highly recommend consulting with the ladies at Southern Sparkle to guarantee not only that your wedding day goes smoothly, but that you are prepared to handle any surprises along the way! Krisy and Jennifer are very professional, reliable, and not to mention have great taste! They know all things wedding and are always prepared. Southern Sparkle came along later in my wedding planning process, but if they were there from the beginning I would have saved so much time and energy. I spent long hours searching for vendors, comparing prices, shopping around for the best ideas and décor. You will be so glad you chose them -they are the best! – Roberta M.
Krisy and her team were fantastic. They made my granddaughter’s wedding one of less stress and coordinated everything beautifully from the moment Haley chose them as her wedding planner until the ceremony ended. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a special event for guidance. – Grandmother of The Bride
Southern Sparkle ladies are the best choice if you are wanting the job done right. Your wedding day should be all you dreamed of and that is exactly what they did for me.

You don’t have to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is wanting there dream wedding- Molly H.
We have had the pleasure of working along the side of Mrs. Krisy Thomas for several weddings and private parties over the course of 3 years. Working with her has been so easy and pleasant. Krisy is a compassionate lady with praiseworthy perseverance and ambition. Mrs. Thomas is one of the most disciplined and organized people I’ve ever known. Her ability to work efficiently under stressful condition and nerve wracking deadlines speaks volumes about her hard work, determination and composed demeanor. During the weddings she is organized, she works hard as a multitasking project leader and demonstrates excellent skills and morale. – L&T Cakery
I have had the amazing privilege this year to work on numerous weddings with the “Sparkle Team”. They have the most beautiful and well organized weddings that I have ever worked on. The organization of their timeline helps me to stay on track with the hair and makeup. The brides that I have worked with always talk very highly of the team and about the extra mile that they go to ensure that the bride has very little to do on her big day. The “Sparkle Team” are the best wedding & event planners and it is definitely worth having a wedding planner on your big day. – Kayla Scott of Kayla’s Scott Professional Hair and Makeup Artistry
This girl is a joy to work with! Her team is incredible at what they do and will work very hard to make each bride have the perfect day. Krisy is a gifted wedding planner! – Vows Wedding & Event Rentals

They are hard working and have an eye for details like none other! This is the perfect team of ladies to guarantee you a stress free wedding day – Castle Pines Farm
Krisy of Southern Sparkle was the first wedding planning professional I had the privilege of working with and to this day after working with dozens more she is STILL number one. Krisy not only cares about making the bride and grooms special day outstanding and everything they dreamed, she truly cares about the wedding industry as a whole. She believes in other vendors and uses her business to further the success of other wedding professionals in the Nashville and Memphis areas. Krisy’s creativeness and ability to make a bride and grooms wedding dreams come to reality is simply amazing. Countless times I’ve seen Krisy book a bride and by the end of the wedding they’re best friends! I think because brides know they can trust her with the biggest day of their life. Krisy truly cares THAT much. Kelsey Hawkins -Kelsey Hawkins Photography
Krisy Parker Thomas is a collegue who I would strongly recommend for any wedding planning or coordinating needs. I am the owner of DJ5 Productions mobile DJ company and I have worked in close contact with Krisy and Southern Sparkle during several recent wedding events. Krisy is organized and punctual. She is excellent at multitasking and is always very organized. She is easy going, but also able to take charge and delegate tasks when the situation requires her to do so. She has always been readily available via email or phone to ask questions and is always quick to respond. She has won several awards for her work in this area. – Greg Nichols – DJ 5 Productions
Working with the Southern Sparkle staff is always a pleasure. When a Bride and Groom need to count on everything being right, they are second to none.
