We love you, Alanna!
Alanna is a pro with such good vibes. From the beginning, we loved her energy and we felt so supported the whole way.
Our day went so smoothly and we have Alanna to thank. She was a knowledgeable resource, she was flexible with her scheduling, and she never got awkward when we bickered in front of her. Hey, that’s a real skill when you’re dealing with stressed out couples! She also provided several services which just made it easier for us— sparklers, bartender, etc.
We definitely would recommend her to anyone. Our date was 2/19/22 at Shiraz Garden.

Simply Sweet Weddings was the best decision we made for our wedding day
We met Alanna in October 2019 when she coordinated my now-husband’s sister’s wedding. We told her then that we were going to hire her when we got married and that’s exactly what we did!
We actually moved our initial wedding date so that Alanna could coordinate for us – that’s how much we wanted to work with her.
Alanna is incredibly responsive, supportive, kind, generous, and hilarious. Alanna listened to what we wanted, and helped us plan for the exact wedding we envisioned. We hired many people from her vendor suggestions and legit everyone we worked with through her was awesome. We had access to her calendar so we could schedule as many meetings as we wanted during our planning time and she always made sure we were prioritizing the right things at the right time.
If we were having a bit of a panic (which definitely happens during wedding planning) she would respond via text/phone call almost immediately and help keep us sane and focused. We honestly had a fun time planning our wedding and we have Alanna to thank for that.
On our wedding day, we were able to relax and have fun because we completely trusted that Alanna would take care of everything. I have been telling everyone I know who is either planning a wedding now, or will be in the future, to hire Alanna because you will be happy/satisfied/amazed.

Alanna is amazing!
Alanna did such an amazing job communicating with everyone involved with our wedding. We were blown away with how perfect our day turned out. The vision we had in our minds was exactly, if not more, than what we got.
Alanna listened to so many of my anxieties and concerns along the way from RSVPs to food to music and everything in between. She has this cool, calm, & collected personality where I am freaking out and she’s like it’ll be handled.
Alanna took care of every little detail at the rehearsal to the day of and beyond. She never made me feel like I was asking too many questions or that my questions were ridiculous. She truly helped me feel like a stress free bride the day of my wedding and I am so grateful! Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and Alanna was the biggest factor in that!

Choosing Alanna as our wedding planner was hands-down the BEST decision we made for our day.
She truly did it all- recommended vendors she trusted, decorated our whole venue, coordinated every detail of the day, and put out small (or large) fires whenever any issues came up. She even spent entirely too much of her busy day personally repairing my broken bustle!
She went above and beyond in every way possible, more than I can describe here. My friends and family all noticed how wonderful she was too, and have already commented that they want to use her on their wedding days too!
Hire Alanna and I promise you won’t regret it!

Amazing Work – Amazing Team Player
Alanna was by far one of our biggest assets and best hire. She is an amazing coordinator and now a life long friend.
We hired Alanna two years ago and despite a long distance and a long time she didn’t miss a beat. She communicated with us over that span listening to our ideas and contributing her own. She always was enthusiastic, professional, and always had a smile.
On our day of the wedding she made sure to be available the moment we needed her. She has amazing ideas that you don’t think about; such as having us eat in private before everyone else. This allowed us to have some time to ourselves, eat our dinner but still have plenty of time to mingle when everyone else ate. With the parents and family she acted as that much needed barrier when they became demanding wanting to know times, and order of events, she took over and answered all their question, saving us another headache.
She was on point, and worked so hard on our big day it showed. She never flinched when we needed her, making sure things went smoothly, if there was a problem we had no idea because she took care of it. She’s worth it and amazing at her job. I can’t say enough how much value she is in a wedding. We, and our guests were so happy, and we are happy she got to be part of our big day.

Alanna was the best, and she kept us on track with multiple meetings leading up to the day of the wedding.
We used her services for the coordination as well as her bar service, which did exceptionally well to serve our guests. She was very organized, professional, gave great advice from experience, and had good vendor recommendations.
Would not have been possible without her and her team.

FIVE MILLION STARS FOR ALANNA AND HER TEAM!!!!!!
Alanna went so far above and beyond — she was there with us far more than just the day of, she answered every single question with a smile, thought of things we hadn’t even considered, and took on every last detail. We literally cannot imagine having our day without her, she is hands down the best money you can spend on your wedding. We worked with her for bartending as well, and it was flawless – we got so many compliments from our guests on the bartender, as well as on Alanna’s making everything go so smoothly while staying in the background.
A few of my favorite moments from working with Alanna that encapsulate her:
When discussing what to do for the seating chart, she told me “come up with anything you want, show me a picture, and I’ll make it happen, nothing is too complicated”
She offered up several of her own accessories to make the day special and save us some money, from table numbers to seating chart framework.
On the day of, after we had dinner we asked her to save the leftovers in case we were hungry later, and she replied, “don’t worry, I already put tacos and cookies in your hotel room in case you want them when you get home”
Besides all of this, she is an absolutely wonderful human and delightful to work with. She treats you like you’re her only wedding even though she is oh so busy, and truly makes your weekend feel special and stress-free. This is the best money you can spend on your wedding!!!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Alanna!
Because of Alanna and her assistant, our wedding went so smoothly. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing and was able to actually enjoy the wedding, eat(!!), and have such an amazing time with friends and family.
Since day 1, Alanna was so on top of things and organized. She was patient, even when my husband (I can’t get used to saying that) and I had no idea what we were doing. She dealt with my difficult early morning schedule and made it work (we had a brunch wedding and I did NOT have to wake up at the crack of dawn, thank you Alanna!!). And on top of that, Alanna was the sweetest and was so personable. Alanna is amazing at what she does and I highly, highly recommend her.
Alanna – thank you so much for being a part of me and Jason’s special day. We could not have done it without you!

One of the Best Decisions We Made!
Hiring Simply Sweet Weddings was one of the best decisions we made for our day, if not the best. Alanna was beyond amazing from Day 1 and went above and beyond to make sure any questions we had were answered, every detail was taken care of, and gave us invaluable guidance on multiple aspects of our day that we were struggling to figure out.
She is so knowledgeable and thoughtful and it truly shows in her work. We had to postpone our wedding by a year for the pandemic and she never missed a beat as she helped us through the craziness of rescheduling.
We felt 100% confident going into our day knowing we had someone so capable who truly cared about helping us have the best wedding possible. Our day was incredible because of her and her team and we will forever be grateful that we hired them!

We simply cannot say enough good things about Alanna and simply sweet for the beautiful wedding they coordinated for us.
In preparation, Alanna held multiple virtual meetings (we live in Houston and was during Covid), walked us through the wedding day and vendor process, all the while keeping in mind the bigger picture and making sure our day went beautifully.
From coordinating the caterer, band, and photographers to handling countless other tasks, we could count on Alanna to and handle tasks so we could enjoy the day stress free.
We cannot thank her enough for her time, effort, and thoughtful attention to detail.
