Learn More About Michael Nolte


Expertise is formed only through decades of experience and Nolte’s Bridal is the most experienced source for wedding gowns and consulting in Kansas City…actually in the United States. Privately owned, Nolte’s is a one of a handful of salons still enthusiastically managed by the original owner…and with that comes enormous peace of mind to you. Thousands of brides have worn his gowns and almost 1,200 weddings have been coordinated by Michael Nolte.

Founded in 1980 with a history that encompasses dressing Miss America’s, the first Midwest wedding to be featured in a national magazine, coordinating the largest weddings in both Kansas City Missouri and the state of Kansas, Nolte’s stands the test of time.

Michael Nolte was the first man to be certified by National Bridal Service as a wedding planner. Now he literally writes the course work for those coming behind him and has authored two books on the subject: “Stylish Weddings” and “Wonder-filled Weddings.”

The company has grown from a three story building in Columbia, Missouri that was everything to everybody i.e. bridal, maids, prom, mothers, invitations, tuxedos and flowers, to the laser focus of what we do best.

Always known for having the “jaw dropping gowns,” and coordinating the “memorable weddings,” the newest (and seventh) salon focuses on the client who doesn’t shop with an entourage and appreciates the champagne experience of working with an expert.
