Testimonials

I seriously cannot say enough about Kelli and Homemade Bride.  Awesome, fantastic, fabulous, creative, smart, thorough, friendly, helpful, etc etc etc... I am so thankful for her and her experience!

I met Kelli at a ForeverBridal show in August 2014, and began following her on FaceBook and via email then.  I was already thinking of contacting her for assistance when she posted a contest - I entered and actually WON!  (I never win anything!)  My (now) husband and I met Kelli and Dan and it was instant friendship.  She was so wonderful at listening to what your vision is and putting it together on a real-life "pinterest board" so you can see everything all together.  It is so helpful to see it all side by side and not just single pins on the computer/tablet/smartphone screen.  She was a great support when I was working on the DIY things - I would send her pictures of things I was working on and give suggestions or just supportive words.  I never knew I was crafty - but we did most of the work all ourselves between me, my hubby, and my friends/family and it turned out great.  Even if you think you are not crafty, give a few things a try and you will surprise yourself!

Kelli also has a great selection of items for rent and we used many of them in our wedding decor.  My wedding gift to myself was having Kelli and Dan come out to help set up - best thing I ever did and between them and my sister-in-law, everything was absolutely perfect.  It is worth every penny for the piece of mind, and if you are not planning on using DIY items afterwards, Kelli has excellent choices in her rental closet!   I can't wait to have pictures of everything so Kelli and I both can show off our handiwork!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Kelli (and Dan!) for making Chris's and my day absolutely perfect!  We love you guys!

We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday party this past weekend. We loved everything! The barrels, the crates, the lanterns ... All of  it! These are not just great for weddings but for any party with a vintage look!

Thank you Homemade Bride for making our party a hit!!!

I recently rented two of Homemade Bride’s rentals and couldn't have been more pleased with the service! i was so excited to received my rentals, they made the perfect last minute touch to my movie night event I hosted. I love that there were so many options and pricing is extremely reasonable for the actual value of the vintage pieces. With that being said, I would recommend anyone to this wonderful experience! I will definitely be coming back soon for more rentals!!

Having the ability to rent through HMB made me feel "at home." I am orginially from Johnstown, NY where I was raised in a cozy, welcoming style home of antiques. Being about 800 miles away makes it hard to feel "at home" until I found HMB. The decor pieces are either thrifted or upcycled-- and most of all, rented at a minimal price in the "Wedding world"-- a bride is definitely thankful for a blessing like that! Not only was the price right- but dealing with kelli was laid-back, and mind-easing. She took the stress away of any confusion in the renting process, always giving deals and making it easier throughout the process. She went out of her way looking for items that josh and I requested for our reception-such as whiskey barrels and a working typewriter! She is very kind spirited and giving. Characteristics any humble busniess owner would want clients to feel.

Renting from HMB couldn't have been easier! I loved being able to see all the available items online. Delivery, pick-up, and payment were all a breeze. I'd absolutely refer HMB to future brides or even just for a special event!

Kelli was amazing at helping me choose the perfect items that added so much to our day and especially our cocktail hour.  Kelli let me see all the items before renting and worked with my schedule on everything.  She knew from the start that my budget was very small and found items that would help fit both my budget and wedding.  Communication was perfect and she is extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

Thank you so much for making my booth at the bridal open house everything I imagined it would be.  I received many compliments on it.  You left me everything I could possibly need in my booth for the set up and that was above and beyond my expectations.

"Working with Kelli at Homemade Bride was a wonderful experience. Kelli made a custom sign for us to rent and it turned out EXACTLY as requested, I just loved it! With all the things we had to purchase for the wedding it was a relief to have the option to rent from Homemade Bride. I would recommend all brides review the rental items, great options!"

Kelli was fantastic! She was so easy to work with and was professional from the first email to the last correspondence. Renting made the wedding process so easy and I highly recommend Homemade Bride for anyone who wants the Pinterest dream with the practical bride budget.

Kelli of Homemade Bride is amazing!!!!

Any event she will help accommodate.  Kelli helped to personalized my daughter's high school graduation "travel theme". I was able to rent vintage luggage, clocks and globes.  The "wow" factor was the personalized directional signage that she made specific for my daughters event with the colors of the theme. I highly recommend contacting Kelli for any event to help make that special day wonderful.

We got married in June and had a great experience with Kelli / Homemade Bride!  There were so many cute things to choose from that we knew we wanted, but did not want to have laying around after the wedding.  It saved us SO much time and effort having what we wanted right there to rent, and she even delivered it to us for a small fee which made the days leading up to the wedding much less stressful.  I had also seen a sign that I wanted on pinterest, but did not want to go into making it myself OR did I know how to start.  She was so quick to come up with a design for me and gave me the option to rent or buy!  I highly recommend Homemade Bride to help add those finishing touches to your big day 🙂

We loved all of our rentals and chalkboards! They looked so professional, and we received many compliments on our decor. We even asked Kelli to create some extra chalkboards for us a few days before the wedding and she was happy to help and dropped everything off at our wedding venue!

"... then came the BIGGEST obstacle hurricane MATTHEW !!! what a better name other than the name of the Lauren's fiancee' (we joke and tell him we knew he was going to be trouble the day we meet him...lol) I know it sounds so simple to just find another place and go with it however it's not quite that simple because you needed different things here and there to replace the things that where provided at the other Venue, that's when Homemade Kelli Battista stepped in, I called her trying to find certain things I need she was awesome, told me not to worry about anything she was going to do everything in her power to help and she did that and more. Thank you isn't strong enough to show our appreciation !!! the kindness, the willingness and caring support of Katie, Abby and Kelli was totally overwhelming and genuine, they couldn't do enough, they wanted to do everything they could to make sure Lauren and Matt's day prefect. I can not say how prefect it was !!! with the help of many, many of our friends and family along with Homemade Bride Magazine & RentalsBrandi's Botanicals it all came together and was amazing, gorgeous and just simply prefect, our Lauren had that smile back on her beautiful face !!! I had a vision for her wedding day and I had worked so hard for so long doing everything I could to give her what she wanted, but without each and everyone involved pulling together helping Ken and I load and load, borrow, rent, etc. in the middle of a hurricane it would NOT have been what it was of which I say was a Fairy Tale wedding 🙂 that every Mother and Father wants for their only child,she is our everything and the reason we go on. I know this is a small novel but I wanted to share the kindness and the miracle of this whole day with everyone just to let you know nothing is ever lost when you put God in the middle give it to him and let him take it, I know without a shout of a doubt he was in the middle of this whole thing and he gave us Katie and Kelli because there is NO other way it would have worked the way it did without them, he is good all the time. Thank You all soooo much even though these 2 words are not enough."

The lanterns were the perfect touch to my centerpieces! I think the barrels were what I was excited about most and they looked great at the start of my aisle 🙂
