Parties A’La Carte Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“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.” -Brittany and Brian | Dusty Blue Boho Chic Winter Inspired Wedding

“It was important to me that my mom and I were able to relax and enjoy the day stress-free, so I knew a wedding planner was integral. 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.” -Taylor and John | Whimsical Pink and Orange Kate Spade Inspired Wedding

“I loved Jessica’s candor and competence. 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.” -Jen and Ben | Elegant Dusty Rose, Pink and Gold Clearwater Beach Destination Wedding

“Once we selected the venue, we asked the coordinator who she loved working with the most, and she highly recommended Jessica Ralph of Parties a la Carte. I loved Jessica’s candor and competence. She and her team went above and beyond in every way imaginable. 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.” -Jen and Ben | Waterfront Clearwater Beach Destination Wedding

“Originally, I only hired a wedding planner for the “day of” services, because I thought I had the rest covered. 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; it was very important to me that someone had the same method for dealing with vendors prior to the wedding, issues that day of and was just fun to work with, and Jessica was all those thing and more. She took charge of all the details, was there for me every step of the way in the wedding planning and executed a perfect event on the day of! Jessica and her team were amazing, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a planner of any event!” -Morgan and Tyler | Elegant Downtown Tampa Parties A’La Carte Wedding
