    Have you heard of contact form generator? The pro version looks good and ability to color customize with no coding seems pretty good. I was going to get gravity, but after contacting them I needed to use css to customize and I don’t want to pay for a form and have to use css. Fast secure works great but not so easy to customize. Any response to contact form generator use appreciated. Reviews on WP Plugin look good, but can’t find anywhere else.

    ARForms is really good. It has a built in styling system so you can customize the forms however you want. It doesn’t cost extra like Gravity Forms and isn’t complicated like the others. But it does everything all the others does. I switched over for the styling and customization issues I had with other form builders.

    I would throw Zigaform – https://wordpress.org/plugins/zigaform-form-builder-lite/ in there as well. The editing via admin panel is a breeze. It’s just dragging and dropping plus the submissions are stored in a database.
