Friendly, calm, and helpful.

I’d definitely recommend Simply Sweet Weddings to a friend. In fact, I already have. Alanna is new to the business, but she is thorough and friendly. She listens to what you want and makes helpful recommendations. And she does everything with a smile.

We had a few hiccups day of, but Alanna stayed cool through it all—helping fit in surprise guests and herding everyone through our non-traditional exit. She made sure the day was a seamless as possible for us.

You’ll Want Simply Sweet There on the Biggest Day of Your Life

Choosing my husband was the best decision involving my wedding, but choosing to work with Alanna at Simply Sweet Weddings was absolutely the next best decision I made. Thinking we would get a truly “day-of” experience, Alanna surpassed our expectations 1000 times over. She treated me like I was a good friend having a wedding: meeting with us, trekking to our venue when my parents came into town, organizing our rehearsal, and often checking in with me via text and sharing encouraging words with me when times were stressful.
On the day of the wedding, I felt so confident knowing I had someone so organized and invested on my team. Things are bound to not quite go as planned, but Alanna and her team will make you feel prepared and comfortable improvising. When I felt like my bouquet wasn’t quite right, Alanna stepped in to go find the extra blooms onsite I’d wanted to add and offered to pin them in. We’d hired two bartenders, one of which did not show up, and her assistant stepped in to help serve drinks all night! My mom told me afterward that she got so nervous seeing Alanna come her way, thinking something had gone wrong, only to have Alanna come ask her how she was doing and if she needed anything–instantly making her calm and feel tended to.
When you meet Alanna you’ll get what I’m talking about–she’s caring, poised, organized, intelligent, friendly–someone you absolutely want at the helm of the biggest day of your life. I cannot recommend her enough–we’ve recommended her to all of our closest friends getting married.
I’m honestly wanting to host another big event just to have her there to make it amazing.

Alanna is a Diamond in the Rough

Alanna made my husband, Malcolm, and I feel so special during the entire planning process and on the day of. This woman does not skip a beat. She is so wonderful that I have recommended her to every single person I run into that is trying to plan a wedding. Before I hired Alanna, I thought I could take care of all the wedding planning on my own. Obviously, I was wrong. Alanna helped me ensure I didn’t forget a single detail, and she was my go-to for everything. She eased my anxiety throughout the whole process, and executed everything perfectly on our wedding day. Alanna, thank you so much for everything! We could not have done it without you!

Please know that I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts to make Issa and Malcolm’s wedding a special memory, not only for my dear couple, but for all in attendance.

Your guidance, demeanor, + support during the planning + your attention to detail during the wedding and reception all contributed to the success of the day! I think Issa expressed it best – “We love Alanna!”

I thought at first that I could get away without a coordinator. Boy was I wrong. I’m so happy Alanna was referred to us. From the day I met her I felt the stress removed from my shoulders. She is amazing and went above & beyond to make our special day absolutely perfect. She was always available when I needed her throughout the wedding planning process, eager to help or offer any advice I may need. On the day of she took care of EVERYTHING. We had a very windy wedding day but she did not skip a beat and put a lot of work in making sure that every thing ran smoothly. I could not have gotten through the day without her. Our guests had nothing but kind words to say about dealing with her as well. I would definitely recommend her to every bride I meet and I even gained a great new friendship. Did I mention she’s amazing?

Simply sweet, simply AMAZING.

Alanna was just so amazing and helpful. She helped bring a sense of order to what seemed like the most chaotic event I have ever planned. She helped us prioritize items by proximity and also reminded us of things we would have simply not thought to do. Plus she is so dang sweet and easy to work with, I don’t know how we would have pulled off such a dream-like event without her. If you’re planning on doing it all yourself, get Alanna on board—she’s absolutely worth it!
