Alyssa was heaven sent! I was in my first year of PhD school and she took some of the biggest “wedding planning stress” off my hands. I had many of my vendors already picked out (location, caterer, florist, cake person), but I still went with her full package because after meeting her, I knew I needed all of her smiles and positive vibes to be with me through the whole process. She made my outside wedding an over the top success.
Alyssa met with my mother and I multiple times at the venue to discuss layout, to-do’s, planning, etc. She reminded us on things that aren’t on blogs or binders and gave great insight from her own experience. The biggest help was her relationships with vendors and having her be the go to person for all of them. I appreciate Alyssa more and more as I hear brides-to-be talk about how much they "can't wait till their wedding is over" because of all of the communication that goes into dealing with multiple vendors. She took tremendous stress off me and my mother. In fact, I cried at the end of my wedding because I didn't want it to end!
There were many obstacles with weather (drizzling right before I walked down the aisle to say I do) and thunderstorms the night before (ground being pretty wet), however, she made my dream wedding happen. She was out there wiping down chairs right before I walked down the aisle, just so my guest would be comfortable sitting down. Her assistant was absolutely amazing and so helpful for the money dance. My husband and I danced the night away and did not eat one bite of the delicious food at the wedding, so what did Alyssa do? Packed us multiple to go boxes and had it waiting for us in our room!
Advice to brides debating on wedding planner or not – hire Alyssa! Do not put the “day of” stress on your mother or bridesmaids! Alyssa is a professional and I cannot say enough great things about how much she will allow you to enjoy YOUR DAY! After watching my wedding video and wedding photos, it confirmed even more how thankful we were to have her! I am forever grateful that I was able to let loose (maybe a little too much 😉) and have fun at my wedding because she was taking care of all the behind the scene work!

I would highly recommend using Alyssa Arlene Events for your special day! She was such a joy to work with and she made our wedding day run smoothly without any issues or problems. Yes, I am recommending her because she is GREAT at what she does but more importantly she is a GREAT person. Alyssa has such a kind soul and generous heart and now that my wedding day is done I couldn’t have imagined it without her. She has such a calming spirit and she was always there when we needed anything at all. She is without a doubt one of the kindest people I have ever met and let’s be real, at the end of the day, those are the types of people you want to surround yourself with, not only on your special day, but in life. All in all I would definitely choose Alyssa and her fabulous team for your special day. They were such a blessing to us and we hope that you choose her to make your day just as special as she made ours!

Alyssa was incredible! She is a problem solver and so organized. All of my other vendors love working with her and so did I! Booking Alyssa as my wedding planner was the best investment. My only regret is that I didn't involve her in more of the planning process (booking a more involved service instead of the month-of package, so that she could have helped me from start to finish). She made everything so easy and seamless and my family was especially grateful to have her! She is TOTALLY worth it!!

There are so many wonderful things I can say about Alyssa and her wedding coordination services. My mom and I sought her out for month-of wedding coordination. She was such a huge help to my mom during this time as I was out of the country for work and Alyssa was able to provide her with so much valuable insight and help.
Our vendors had nothing but praise for her perfectly executed coordination. The rehearsal ran like clockwork and she made absolute sure everyone knew exactly what to do and when. The ceremony and reception were breathtaking and both went off without a hitch. Alyssa made sure my mom and I didn't have to worry about anything on the wedding day.
The reception was outside and unfortunately it started to drizzle a bit right before the first dance was scheduled. Without missing a beat, Alyssa was able to move around the timeline so my husband and I could wait it out. When the weather didn't let up, she talked me into braving the rain and I cannot thank her enough because it was such a perfect and romantic first dance in the rain.
I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Alyssa Arlene Events for your wedding. She is exactly the person you want to help you coordinate. From tracking down lost cummerbunds to tying bustles, she made sure everything ran smoothly and I cannot thank her enough for helping make our wedding day so special.

Soooo sweet. She made the wedding day as stress free as possible. My daughter said she seemed show up every time she was thinking she need something, like she read her mind! Very organized. Complimented by all of my vendors. I don't know how anyone can do without a wedding planner. Definitely recommend.
KARA PATIN, BRIDE Love love love Alyssa!
Alyssa was a dream come true in the last few months of my wedding planning. I used her services for the 3 months leading up to my wedding, and on the wedding day. She is the absolute sweetest person I could have ever chosen to work with! I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. Alyssa is such a hard worker and she made sure that everything was perfect for my special day! Thank you Alyssa!

I think my father said it best in a thank you email to Alyssa..."I wish I could find the right words to convey our appreciation for unruffled grace you personify and showed in the weeks leading up to our daughter’s wedding, at the event, and the reception thereafter. I don’t know how any bride can handle all the minutia and details necessary to pull off even a modest wedding, without your guidance, support and follow through. You brought our daughter confidence and comfort in the critical days before the ceremony, allowing all of us to fully enjoy the tender moments that will touch our hearts forever. You were there for all of us, every step of the way. You are a gem and made our special day, absolutely perfect."

We used Alyssa for our day of coordinator and it was hands down the best decision we made. She is incredible. She’s so nice and you can tell by the little things that she really cares about you and making your day stress free. We can’t even imagine our day without her. She made it go so smooth and she did such a good job setting up our décor and making sure we had everything we needed throughout the entire night.
SIDONIE GAUDE, BRIDE- Alyssa made our wedding magical.
My husband and I took two years to plan out our DIY Cajun and colorful wedding from a thousand miles away. We knew we wanted to make/build/plan a majority of our wedding ourselves but knew we would need help along the way. We hired Alyssa Mistric to have someone local in Louisiana to keep all the details straight and take command on the wedding day so bride/groom/family/friends could enjoy the day as much as possible. SHE WAS AMAZING! There are so many details that we never even thought about but Alyssa was priceless in keeping us on budget, bringing up valuable bits of advice, finding a perfect photographer in a crunch when our first choice fell through four months before the day, helped form backup plans as it happened to rain on our outdoor wedding, and was a reliable helping hand through the entire process. Thanks to her, we have countless beautiful memories collected from our wedding day and not a single regret.

Being a wedding photographer, I knew all the complications that could go into planning such a huge day. I didn't have the time to do it alone and didn't want to put it all on my mom. We decided to hire Alyssa on a whim and it was one of the best decisions I made besides saying "yes" to my man of course! She was ahead of me the whole time, which is pretty awesome considering i'm a control freak and micro manager. She was so fun and so sweet throughout the whole process.
One moment that stood out to me happened right after out first look. My husband and I were walking toward the venue, when Alyssa came out with a smile. She then shared with my that my wedding cake had fallen due to an unstable table and was unable to be fixed. I was so happy with everything else I couldn't have even find a reason to get upset. I laughed it off and trusted her anyways. Later in the night, a guest came up to me exclaiming how much they loved the cups of ice cream and cake. I was so confused because I never ordered ice cream to be paired with cake. Alyssa then told me that she sent her assistant 30 minutes into town to buy ice cream to save the day. I knew right there that I made the right choice. Alyssa is a rock-star seriously.
Conrad and I couldn't not have been any happier.
kATHERINE GUILLORY, BRIDE Amazing!
Alyssa Arlene Events was so worth the money!! Not only was I able to enjoy my day, but she was on-call to me whenever I needed her or just had a simple question. She made sure I was taken care of as well as my family on the big day and just had a positive attitude overall! HIGHLY recommend her for any bride who wants a stress-free wedding day!
Taylor Moore, Bride- Alyssa was my life saver!
I hired Alyssa less than a month before my wedding, but that didn't stop her from making my wedding look like she had been there from the beginning of the planning process! She quickly got to work on everything I needed her to do! She glued together 500 sheets of paper with a stick between them to make 250 fans for my wedding the week of my wedding! You can't get anyone better than her! I didn't have to worry about everything the day of my wedding, she set everything up better than I could have planned myself. Alyssa is the sweetest girl I have met and she is exactly what I needed on my wedding day. My dad looked at Alyssa while we were waiting to go the aisle and she was sending everyone down the aisle and told me he was so glad we hired her. Love her!
