We wanted someone who could be a month of coordinator. We had done a lot of the planning of finding vendors during the lockdown, and thankfully, we were able to keep them when we decided to postpone our celebration. We needed help with just the finishing touches and the execution.

After meeting with Jessica and McKenzie at Parties A La Carte, we knew they were the right choice. They listened to everything we wanted and offered help when I needed it. They made our day go perfect, and they brought our vision to life. It was a dream of a day!

We were referred to Parties A’La Carte by my mother-in-law who had full confidence in her from working with them for my sister-in-law’s wedding.

Parties A'La Carte came highly recommended. We wanted true professionals who would take away all of the stress that a wedding can bring upon an engaged couple. They not only helped in that aspect, but they brought so many different elements into our wedding that we would not have been able to imagine on our own. We had total trust in our wedding planner, and she exceeded all of our expectations.

Someone who has a reputation for excellence and a portfolio of exceptional events.

All of the reviews highlighted Jessica and her team’s attention to detail, which was important to us given we weren’t able to be physically present for most of the planning process. We also appreciated how they leveraged their years of experience in the industry to help inform our decision-making. One important note is that we hired Parties A’La Carte before COVID hit, and we could not be more impressed with how they navigated all of the considerations that came with our wedding happening in the middle of a pandemic. The confidence they provided, along with important ideas for safety measures to take, helped to reassure us and mitigate the incredible amount of stress that we felt with the decision to stick with our original wedding date.

We looked for a team that could really capture our vision.

We chose Parties a la Carte because of their previous work we had seen on social media and in wedding magazines, and it was a great fit. They also helped plan my sister and her husband's wedding. They are very accommodating and totally captured our vision. They are on top of everything and always there whenever we had questions or concerns.

I am very detail-oriented and wanted to be active in the wedding planning process, so I looked for someone who worked well with me and understood my personality. I wanted someone with a lot of experience in Tampa events and vendors. It was also important to me to be present at the wedding. I wanted to be able to release everything and needed someone I could trust to take the wheel.

My maid of honor used to work as an event planner at Parties A’La Carte (PALC), and so I had a personal relationship with Jessica and her team. I have also attended weddings of friends who used the services of Parties A’La Carte, and it was a no-brainer for me.

Weddings can feel like chaos, but I can say that because of the amazing ladies at PALC, we both got to be present and enjoy every minute of our wedding. They made the planning process seamless. The greatest compliment I can give is that I did not have to ask one single question all day. They were on top of every detail and executed the wedding of my dreams. We hired them for the partial package, and my only regret was that I didn’t hire them sooner for the complete planning package! Jessica and Kelsey at Parties A’La Carte went above and beyond to make sure that I was able to be fully present. It is amazing to watch them work, and I owe my wedding experience to PALC. Their experience and knowledge of weddings are unmatched.

I wanted someone who has unique and creative ideas with an awesome personality who I could trust throughout the planning process.

I found my wedding planner Parties A' La Carte from Marry Me Tampa Bay, and it just took off from there. I hired Parties A' La Carte after reading tons of excellent reviews and checking out multiple articles they have been featured in.

Every one of them was the most elegant, unique wedding I have ever seen. I knew from that moment they were exactly who I was looking for. I can't thank Parties A' La Carte enough for their exceptional service throughout the entire planning process. The communication is A+.
