Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Alanna

If you are trying to plan a wedding without Alanna, you are really making things too hard for yourself. When I started planning, I didn’t think I needed a wedding planner or day-of coordinator. I thought I could do it all by myself. But as the big day got closer, so many little questions started to pile up, and I realized I needed a little help. That’s when I hired Alanna. This was, hands down, the best and most important decision I made while planning my wedding. From day one, Alanna took care of everything. She met with us multiple times before the wedding, answering all our little questions and creating a day-of timeline that would ensure everything ran smoothly. She got in contact with all our vendors to confirm details and answer their questions, and she even hooked us up with a vendor we thought we would never be able to afford! She conducted our rehearsal dinner, and even brought our suitcases to our hotel for us. Seriously, she does EVERYTHING. On the day of the wedding, Alanna was in full power mode. She picked up coolers and ice, and even offered to deliver breakfast to my bridesmaids and I. She got the entire venue decorated exactly as I had envisioned. She greeted vendors and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. She cued the processional, set up all the tables for dinner, cut the cake, handed out tip money, and probably ten million other things that I don’t even know she did. Seriously, weeks after the wedding, I am still learning of little things that ALMOST went wrong at my wedding before Alanna saved the day. I wasn’t even aware of these things. Because I hired Alanna, I was able to float through my wedding day blissfully happy and relaxed. Alanna’s top priority was making sure I was not stressed out. It wasn’t until later that I learned how many little details she had to take care of that day. If you’re like me, and you’re thinking of doing everything by yourself, please stop and think about how many little issues will crop up on your wedding day. Do you want to be the one worrying about all of those? Or do you want to relax and enjoy the most beautiful day of your life while Alanna takes care of everything? Seriously, this woman does not charge enough and you should hire her before she becomes the most sought-after day-of coordinator in the country. She’s that good. My wedding day is now the happiest memory of my life, and I know that’s because Alanna was there to make everything perfect.

No need to look elsewhere – Hire Alanna!

We had the privilege of working with Alanna for our wedding and she exceeded every expectation we had. Not only was she incredibly receptive to every request we had, but she also went above and beyond to make sure we did not have to worry about anything. She coordinated with all the vendors, put us in contact with some amazing people, and the day felt effortless. Not once was I ever worried or stressed about anything because I knew Alanna had it under control. When I was originally looking for a wedding coordinator I was very worried I wouldn’t find someone whom I could put all my trust and confidence in, but upon meeting Alanna I knew she was the right person for the job. With the help of her and her amazing team, our wedding was the best day of our lives. We cannot thank her enough.

Hire This Woman

I can tell you right now that my wedding was everything and more because of Alanna. She took my vision and RAN with it, going above and beyond and doing more than expected of her. I had several people come up to me throughout my wedding day asking me who she was and if she did parties – one of my aunts from AZ wants her to help us with my grandmother’s 80th she’d fallen in love with her!

Truthfully, I think Alanna sells herself short. She’s worth so much more than I think she believes she is, and I really cannot thank her enough for everything she did for me. From 7am to 1am wedding day she was there for my family and me. She helped set up, clean up, and dealt with problems before I even knew they were problems! (And lemme tell you, we had problems like when all of my girls bouquets died overnight. We show up to the ceremony and Alanna sprang into action and fixed that real fast!) She was a professional through and through. This woman even met with me on several occasions for a few hours at a time to talk through everything, contacted vendors when I didn’t have time, and worked out a timeline for day of. She is EXTREMELY organized and is always available to talk. I never waited to hear from her, never had to check in to see how an assignment was going, and never had to worry. She even came through on some last minute changes and wants (like helping me get a photo booth three days before the wedding).

I can’t say enough good things about Alanna. I was so impressed with her and envious, truthfully, of how organized she is. She’s such a delight to be around, too. Seriously. I could go on and on about this woman like how she handled a five minute meltdown of mine at the reception because I was tired of being in my shoes (so embarrassing and so stupid in retrospect), how she dealt with a photographer not showing up for me, how she and her assistant made sure I was eating and drinking water the entire day, how they made sure my family was comfortable, how they decorated the ceremony when I didn’t even plan on decorating, etc. etc.

You won’t be disappointed if you hire her. I swear. I don’t regret it for one single second and if I have any other parties, this is my go-to girl. In fact, my husband and I are ready to do vow-renewals just so we can hire her to help us plan that party and we’ve only been married for four days (hah!).

Sincerely, though, thank you, Alanna, for everything. March 2nd was absolutely perfect and beyond what I’d imagined it could be and let me tell you, it wouldn’t have been without you in our corner.

Best Wedding Coordinator EVER!

Alanna is the best wedding coordinator EVER! She’s so hands on and deeply passionate about what she does! Not to mention a genuinely kind and caring individual. Her attention to detail is impeccable! We don’t know what we would have done without her! Every snag we hit in our planning process, she was right there to assist. On the day of our rehearsal dinner we went over our décor with her, and on our wedding day we let her do her thing. There was nothing out of place. We couldn’t have done it better ourselves! Even when our venue was doing the most, she continued to drive on with grace, poise, and professionalism. 5 stars!

You were absolutely wonderful, we couldn’t have chosen better. You came through on every promise of your contracted service and more. You and your team made Mick and Ryan’s day very special, so many brides unfortunately look back on their wedding day as a disaster, (not) our case.

It’ll always be a cherished memory, you were excellent, we are still in awe of how wonderful everything was; we are still getting compliments on how beautiful and fun the event turned out to be from family and friends.

We knew from the day we met you; this is not just a job/or a service you provide, it’s a true love and passion to make a couples special day as flawless as possible.

Thank you for your talent, hard work and true passion Alanna and Team.

Amazingly wonderful!!!

Alanna and Scott are an amazing team who have been there for my husband and I since day 1. We needed to change coordinators at the last minute and Alanna was gracious enough to take us on 4 weeks before our wedding day. There are not enough words to convey how ecstatic we are with their service.

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!

Leona (mother of the groom) said … 

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!”
