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+.

I really enjoyed meeting all of my potential wedding planners. I was looking for someone who was confident in what they do and someone who could guide me and see the direction I was going in before I even knew where that was.

With the help of my Dad, I interviewed several wedding planners. As soon as my father and I met Jessica, we knew she and her staff at Parties A’La Carte were the best for us. I can’t describe what I want, but I know what I want when I see it, and Jessica immediately sensed that and was ready to help me through the process.

Once we booked the venue and the band, my mom and I were pretty overwhelmed with the search for vendors. We both work full-time so we needed someone in the Tampa area that knew reputable vendors and could get the vendors booked.

My mom had the initial conversation with Jessica of Parties A' La Carte. She was very impressed with her expertise from the first conversation. We can't say enough good things about them! The team is incredibly effective and efficient. They created our budget and stayed within the budget while making my exact vision come to life. Once we began working with Parties, the process was completely stress-free.

I wanted reliability in a wedding planner and openness to new ideas as things changed constantly with COVID.

Parties A'La Carte did a phenomenal job. They turned our backyard into a jungle oasis. With the help of our planner and all of the vendors, we made what was looking like a backyard barbecue into a simple but beautiful and intimate wedding. We couldn’t have been more pleased with how the entire day went. They set the mood perfectly!

We are both extremely detail-oriented and perfectionists, and we wanted a wedding planner who had that same eye for detail who would bring our wedding vision to life.

After our initial consultation with Jessica Ralph from Parties A’ La Carte, we knew that she and her team were the perfect fit. Jessica and the PALC team completely exceeded our expectations! They knew our vision exactly and were there every step of the way to make it come to life.
