Highly recommended! Affordable Elegance catered our wedding in August 2016 @ 28 Event Space. Affordable Elegance was recommended by a co-worker. Simply put, my wife and I give Cami and her staff the highest marks as professionals and catering service. Cami and her staff, not only treated us as important clients, but they also treated us as if we were family. Cami took time to consider our budget, customize our menu, and personalize our table linen/napkin colors, table layout and design. They provided outstanding customer service skills, very detail oriented, and their food and services were excellent. We received many positive comments from our guests (roughly 260 in attendance). My wife and I explored many catering services in the Kansas City area, and by far Affordable Elegance ranked top of the list. I personally want to thank Cami and staff for a job well done and making everything stress free. For those seeking a quality catering service I highly recommend contacting Affordable Elegance.
My husband and I hired Affordable Elegance to work our November wedding. I can not speak highly enough of this company. Not only were they responsive throughout the entire planning process, answering our many phone calls and emails within an hour or two, but they went above and beyond what I would have expected from a caterer. They met with us multiple times, let our imaginations run wild when choosing our desert flavors (we went with a combination of pies and cupcakes), and even met with us at our venue to discuss lay out and recommendations for setting up our tables. The night ran so smoothly with their help, and the room was set up beautifully! Aubrey was our head caterer and checked on us periodically to make sure we were satisfied. The servers were very friendly and helpful every step of the way throughout the night. And of course, the food was delicious! We received so many compliments from our guests on how tasty the dinner was. I couldn't be more happy with the level or professionalism and the service that was provided by Dee Dee, Cami, Aubrey, and the rest of the Affordable Elegance team. I will strongly recommend these caterers to anyone who asks in the future! Thank you for helping us pull off such a beautiful evening!
Affordable Elegance came to me as a word of mouth recommendation from a co-worker. I was having a really difficult time finding a caterer who would do a brunch reception with the kinds of items we wanted for our price point. Affordable Elegance exceeded all our expectations! The food was delicious, and all our guests raved about how great it was. Some of them went back for 2nds and 3rds! They also were able to work with us to get special linens that they themselves didn't offer, and we got them at a reasonable price without having to engage another vendor. They were patient with all of our questions and put our minds at ease about concerns we had that we might not have enough food. Would absolutely use them again! They also gave us a sweet note to wish us well and thank us for the business! Personal touches make all the difference!
Everyone at Affordable Elegance worked together to have a wonderful wedding reception for our son. They provided the dinner, bar and linens. They took our color choice and accented the buffet table. We had rave reviews on the fantastic food from everyone. (We had the pecan crusted pork and the carved sirloin.) Everything was timely and went like clockwork. Many thanks to Dee-Dee, Camie and crew!
I can't say enough good things about Dee Dee and her staff. They were able to make my menu exactly how I wanted which is hard for a picky eater like me. We had a small ceremonial cake and it was absolutely perfect. I'm still receiving compliments on how delicious the food was. At first I wasn't sold on the price, but you definitely get what you pay for (in a good way). They made me very relaxed and I never worried one bit about the day of details with Affordable. The food presentation was perfect and everything turned out just the right temperature and the flavo was amazing. I highly recommend Affordable Elegance for all future brides in the are, you will not be disappointed.
I highly recommend! They were great to work with and were very professional and organized. People commented on how much they enjoyed the dinner at our reception!
Excellent value for the price! Very accommodating with our schedule both for tasting as well as serving on the wedding day. They have several options for your budget and are willing to customize within that. The staff was fantastic, they saved our decorations from the cake before we cut it and even set aside small plates of appetizers for the wedding party while we were taking pictures.
Incredible people running an amazingly sweet business! So fun and easy to work with. Food and cake were amazing! Received many compliments on the food and cake! Would recommend them to everyone!
The people at Affordable Elegance were so accommodating! The food and cake were delicious. Everyone talked about how good everything was. They have a Sunday brunch at their location, and a few times my husband and I have driven the 30+ minutes out there just to enjoy their food.
Everything from planning to the actual reception was perfect in every way!!! Camie and DeeDee are so easy to work with.They listened to our requests and helped us work out details and gave us ideas to fit our budget.Everything we've asked for was taken care of.The presentation of the food and tables was excellent! The staff was on task and even helped us clean up after the reception.We really had fun and would recommend Affordable Elegance to anyone planning an event!
Highly recommend! Camie helped us through our entire wedding planning and the event! She was accommodating and extremely professional! I felt taken care of from the moment we went for a food tasting, throughout the work of fittting our catering to our budget, all the way to the end of our wedding! The food was good, the service was great, and the set up and clean up was amazing. They will definitely take care of you.
Fantastic quality and service! Our wedding was in September at the Courtyard Marriott in Briarcliff. Deedee, Camie, and the crew were very helpful in coordinating details before the event, and executed perfectly! We did not have to worry about catering at all on our wedding day. Thanks for all your help!
WOW! All I can say is WOW! Affordable Elegance was absolutely amazing. From the food to the staff I give them 10s across the board. I had so many people come up and tell us how great the food was. We had chicken parmesan, pasta, green beans and bread. We also had them make our cake which was yellow and chocolate marble with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. It was all so so so good! The staff was great from the moment we chose them as our caterer until we made our grand exit from the reception. They even set us home with all the left over food and a bottle of wine. Before the wedding they were very good about responding to my emails (and I sent A LOT of emails) and they always answered all of my questions. If you want to have wonderful food served by a kind staff, then look no further! The are amazing!
I tried 6 other caterers before I found this caterer. They responded to any and all of my questions within a couple hours and were very experienced and professional. They executed our full room flip perfectly, and took all worry off of me and my mom. Their prices, as their name suggests, are fair and affordable. Above all, the food was spectacular. We received numerous complements that this was the best wedding food people had ever had and that the Mexican food tasted authentic. Just wish I could get more carnitas and adobe chicken now!
Camie and her team were wonderful! The food is amazing- we got so many compliments from our guests about the food. The baked beans are to die for! It was so easy and wonderful working with the team- they went above and beyond to make sure our reception was perfect. They are also very affordable with a good quality of food and service! Would definitely pick them again!
Don’t be fooled by their unassuming manner and restaurant, Affordable Elegance has truly awesome food! Perhaps because they have “affordable” in their name, you might get the impression that they are a “make-do” option, but that would be a mistake! We went to all the fancy tasting rooms of many of their competitors in the area – and we unanimously agreed – Affordable Elegance’s food was the best! Great food doesn’t need fancy surroundings and eager salespersons – it speaks for itself. Just because you might pay more doesn’t mean you will get better food or service. Dee-Dee and Greg own their business & they are intimately involved in it. Their somewhat modest business location means they avoid a lot of unnecessary overhead – so the money you pay translates directly into good food and service! At our recent wedding for about 200, every guest raved about the food & we heard not one single complaint. When we started this, we didn’t realize how important good service would be. Dee-Dee and Camie showed us by example what a difference it makes. They responded to our every question quickly & kindly - & I asked a lot of questions! They have 30 plus years of experience & their answers reflected that. They gave us good common sense advice & helped us avoid expensive mistakes. They were the rock we could always count on. Each time we talked with them, we came away calm & confident that everything was under control and our choices were good ones. It was like having a best friend or favorite aunt looking out for you to make sure your day would turn out perfect (& that you would still have some money left over to spend on a fabulous honeymoon)! How nice that – on our day which was all about celebrating love with friends & family – we had people from Affordable Elegance working with us who felt like friends and family. In turn, they looked out for us like we were their own friends and family. My advice: if they have your date free - don't wait too long - book them!
The service, display, and promptness was fabulous. A little disappointed with the taste of a few of the appetizers and seemed a little pricey for what we requested. Otherwise, they were very dependable and professional staff!
We used Affordable Elegance Catering for my son's wedding. Everything was perfect. The food was service was amazing. Thank you Aubrey for doing an outstanding job. We were able to enjoy our company and not worry about a thing because Aubrey and her crew took care of every little detail. I highly recommend Affordable Elegance Catering and will be using them for an future events.
Affordable Elegance was a preferred caterer choice at our venue. We went to a tasting and were blown away by how delicious the food was! The Apple Jack Pork Loin and Chicken Cordon Bleu were so delicious! We also opted for the Italian Green Beans and the Twice Baked Potato. Our guests complimented our buffet all night! They were such a great help in setting up for our reception, and the staff was so friendly at our reception too!
Affordable Elegance provided catering and bar services for our wedding reception on 11/14/15. They were outstanding to work with and graciously responsive to all our needs. The food was delicious and the presentation lovely. Our guests commented how great the food was!! We certainly would use their services again!

Affordable Elegance catered my husband and I's wedding in October 2015. I have only wonderful things to say about this company. They worked with us to find a menu and price that worked with our budget. They followed up promptly when we were shopping for a caterer and after we'd booked them up until the actual wedding. The staff that worked the wedding was friendly, professional, and accommodating to the bridal party, family, and friends. My mother raved and raved about how great the entire staff was. Oh yeah. The food is good too! Would highly recommend this caterer. You will not be disappointed.

Affordable Elegance is a great choice. They catered my daughter and son-in-law's wedding on 11/7/15. Menu consisted of salad, rolls, chicken cordon bleu, carved top sirloin, garlic mashed potatoes, and glazed carrots. Everything was good, but the carved beef and carrots were better than good - they were deliciously awesome!! We received a lot of compliments! The service was professional, and the meat carver was super friendly and accommodating! They did a great job, didn't charge extra for the carver, and even gave the newlyweds a nice bottle of wine! They are an approved caterer thru the venue we used, and the price of the meal was included in the venue cost, (280 people) Overall, we are very happy!

We used Affordable Elegance Catering for our 10/10/15 wedding and it was such a wonderful and stress-free experience! From beginning to end, Dee Dee, Camie and staff at AE provided amazing service. AE catered our wedding reception meal as well as provided desserts and everything was absolutely delicious - we got so many compliments from our wedding guests. The staff is professional, prompt and a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough wonderful things about Affordable Elegance Catering!!
I was just married on 09/19/2015 and Affordable Elegance made our reception so wonderful! The company not only provides delicious food but exceptional service!!! From our first tasting until my wedding, I never once was concerned, worried or frustrated. You can definitely trust Dee-Dee and her team for all of your catering needs and they even offer suggestions for decor and logistics too! Affordable Elegance takes pride in what they do and genuinely care about each one of their clients which is evident in how they run thier business! I will tell everyone I know about how AWESOME you are and hope to be able to use you again some day! Thanks for all you did the past year to make our wedding day so special! You were a pleasure to work with. Love, Rebecca and Christopher!
Amazing ValueReviewed on 10/06/2015 Christina A
Their name really says it all! Working with Dee Dee and her husband was smooth sailing. Everything was absolutely delicious, the portions were generous, and we got an amazing bang for our buck. Our wedding coordinator even said "They made the best wedding cake I've ever had". Highly recommended!
