"Can I just say how much I love Create-A-Scene?! There are a million wonderful things I could say about them, but the bottom line is simply this: if I did my wedding all over again, I would simply put every decor element in their hands. You truly cannot understand the value in their business until you realize how much stress they take off of your hands in designing and setting up your space."

- Lauren, Bride

"Kristy was so awesome with helping us with everything we needed for our wedding! From decorations to flowers, everything was perfect! It was always easy to get in touch with Kristy even for last minute things the day of the wedding! We are so happy we chose Create a Scene for our wedding needs!"

- Brittney, Bride

"This team is outstanding! I can't say enough good things. Our day was even more beautiful than I imagined. I am grateful they traveled to the Quad Cities for our wedding because I truly can't imagine such a perfect day without them!"

- Amy, Bride

"Kristy and her staff went above and beyond for our wedding. Super nice people and they are extremely creative and great at what they do. Their vision and details are phenomenal. Could not have imagined a better set up. Absolutely gorgeous job with the decorations"
