The number of hours they dedicated to our wedding was mind-blowing. Any time of the day or night we needed something, they were there. I would have truly been lost without them.”

Brittany & Brian | Dusty Blue Boho Chic Winter Inspired Wedding | Parties A’La Carte

Romantic Boho Chic Inspired Ballroom Wedding Reception Decor, Round Tables with Ivory Tablecloths, Clear Acrylic Chiavari Chairs, Tall Clear Glass Vase with White, Ivory and Greenery Floral Centerpiece | Waterfront Hotel Wedding Venue Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach | Planner Parties A'la Carte | Florist Bruce Wayne Florals | Rentals A Chair Affair, Over the Top Rental Linens“We actually used Marry Me Tampa Bay to find our planners at Parties A’La Carte, which was the best decision we made! Parties A’La Carte was the only planner that reached back out to me within 24 hours. To me, that showed high organization and professionalism especially since all of the others took about a week. Jessica was also very genuine and explained details of the planning process that we hadn’t even thought of. The women of PALC are fabulous and having them be a part of our wedding made it even more special. They took care of literally everything, and they are the sweetest people ever. I have to compliment our wedding planners because, without Jessica and her team, we wouldn’t have had such amazing vendors. Everyone loved the PALC team, and my mother still to this day talks about how impressed she was with their services.”

Gina & Steve | Romantic Garden Inspired Destination St. Pete Beach Wedding | Parties A’La Carte

Romantic Garden Inspired Floral Square Wedding Arch at Oceanfront Ceremony on White Sand, White and Blush Pink Florals with Greenery | Tampa Bay Florist Bruce Wayne Florals | Florida Planner Parties A La Carte | St. Pete Beach Wedding Venue The Historic Don Cesar Hotel“Parties A’ La Carte was highly recommended by my venue. After seeing some of their previous weddings on social media and meeting with Jessica, I hired Parties A’ La Carte for partial planning and day of coordination. Their service exceeded all expectations I had for a wedding planner. Jessica consistently made herself available during the wedding planning process to ensure the ceremony and reception design was perfect. I knew from day one of meeting her that she was passionate about her job and exceptionally talented, but the day of coordination services showed that Jessica and her team truly care about their client’s happiness. Anything my husband and I needed on our wedding day, the Parties A’ La Carte team handled in five minutes or less! I could easily say the team went above and beyond for us. We have no idea what we would have done without them!”

We were looking for someone who was organized, creative, detail-oriented, and reliable. We could not have been happier working with Parties A’La Carte! Every detail of the day was executed flawlessly, but the best thing about working with Jessica was that she had our best interests as the bride and groom at heart. She went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect and that John and I were happy.”

Their events were beautiful and unique, so I knew no matter what I had envisioned for my wedding, Jessica was going to make it happen for me. I hired them right after getting engaged, and from that moment on, the team went above and beyond to make my dream wedding come true. There would not have been a wedding if it weren’t for them!”

Holly & Andrew | Tropical, Old Florida Inspired Clearwater Beach Wedding | Parties A’La Carte

Outdoor Tropical Beach Wedding Ceremony Decor with Wooden Arch, Banana Leafs, White Hydrangeas and Orchids Wedding Planner Parties A La Carte | Clearwater Beach Wedding Venue Carlouel Yacht Club“Since I was planning from out-of-state, a wedding planner was key. We didn’t want to worry about the unknown. We also wanted to enjoy the process, so finding someone whom we trusted and would keep us on top of things was important. When you first meet Jessica and the Parties A’La Carte team, it is obvious they are experienced and will do anything to make the wedding of your dreams happen. They are detail oriented and will make sure you consider all the options (that you may not have even thought of before). Most importantly they took care of our guests and bridal party and made sure they were having fun and that the logistics and transportation were seamless. I can’t imagine the day of the wedding without their team!”

Carrie & Jason | Glamorous Nautical Downtown St. Pete Wedding | Parties A’La Carte

Tall White, Green and Gold Elegant Wedding Reception Centerpiece Flowers Decor | St. Petersburg Wedding Planner Parties a la Carte“Honestly, I could kick myself in the butt for not hiring a wedding planner. So many people told me not to waste my money, that I could just do it by myself. So, I did. Big mistake! I needed someone to take my vision and execute it, and Parties a la Carte nailed it. They were worth every dollar spent. I had a few items remaining, some that I didn’t even know I needed, and the owner, Jessica, was literally able to solve all of it in one day with her contacts! My wedding threw Jessica and team many curve balls, and she caught them all.”

She and her team went above and beyond in every way imaginable. She saved us money between her negotiating prices and saving us from making mistakes. Jessica managed everything until the wedding, but also managed many unavoidable day of crises with grace, patience and a positive attitude. She really makes the entire day about the bride and groom and not about her.”

I was wrong! Planning a wedding has so many details that need to be attended to, and I was not prepared or equipped to hire some of the decorators and details myself. That job should be reserved for someone who works in that industry every day! I met Jessica Ralph [of Parties a la Carte] at a wedding I was in, just after I had gotten engaged to Tyler. We hit it off right away. She took charge of all the details, was there for me every step of the way and executed a perfect event on the day of!”
