Party People – Hype Girls – Planning BFFs
Co-owners Nicole Serse and Kristen Ligas met in 2012 at a fashion and beauty PR agency. Their love for planning media events brought these two powerhouse women together and in 2016, Well-Dressed Events was born. Their experiences working through various roles at major companies like Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Toys’R’Us, and WeWork are what shaped and molded Well-Dressed Events. Through these roles, Nicole + Kristen brought all of their expertise together to create the ultimate party-planning company.
Since then, this duo has worked with countless clients in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, + Pennsylvania for all of life’s events from weddings to showers to mitzvahs, and other milestones, Nicole + Kristen are ready to take on the day, and all the prep work that goes into creating these memorable moments.
Nicole + Kristen shared, “Past clients have described us as ‘knowledgeable, fun, positive, helpful, attentive, and no bullsh*it. We think that sums us up perfectly.”
The Well-Dressed Events Team is relationship driven and is highly focused on creating a professional, buttoned-up, and efficient event from start to finish. They strive to make each client feel as if they are their only client and help them to enjoy the planning process.

Starting the Process With Well-Dressed Events
To get started, interested clients can fill out the Well-Dressed Events contact form or reach out through email. They will then send out a questionnaire to gather more information about you and your upcoming event. Next, Kristen and Nicole will schedule an initial consultation to talk through needs, and packages, and answer any questions you may have about the process. These gals will end up being your BFFs + trust us, you’re going to LOVE them.
Following the consultation, your planner will create a custom proposal and hold your event date for seven days — so you have all the time to review with limited stress. The process couldn’t be easier – from start to finish, Nicole + Kristen have you covered, wondering why anyone would plan an event without such a strong support system.
