Alana was my sanity! Legit, she is amazing! From the beginning her bubbly attitude was exactly what I knew I needed during planning and on the day. I had no idea how much she would go above and beyond, especially she came up with solutions to a special request I had for my dad or just being accessible whenever I had the silliest question. The month leading into the wedding was less stressful because Alana helped by being another set of eyes or giving me her opinion. This really helped me pull the trigger on decisions much much faster. Our wedding day went flawlessly and we credit Alana and Sara for all of their hard work. Ben and I can't thank you enough!!! I'm so happy that we hired you as our coordinator and you can expect the occasional msg from me just to say hello :)Sent on 25/08/2017

Alana and her team at Swoon were absolutely wonderful from start to finish, and ensured our wedding was a stress-free and beautiful day. Her planning resources and guidance was so helpful, don't know what we would have done without it! She also had fantastic recommendations for vendors including hair, make-up, florists etc. that fit our style and budget. The day of, her and team exceeded our expectations, by setting up the venue so beautifully from our guest book table to the dining room tables. They were also incredible problem solvers so we didn't have to worry - I had had a bridesmaid unable to attend the wedding, who then at the last minute was able to fly from the US, and as a result didn't get the flower order in time, and Swoon worked with our venue to get flowers from the garden to create a wristband corsage that matched the other bridesmaids - and we were so thankful they resolved that issue so quickly! Their day of wedding guide with schedule and all the details was so comprehensive and made it such a relaxing and special experience for all of the us and both the families. A huge thank you to Alana, Sara and Swoon for making our day such a perfect one, with memories for a lifetime!!!!Sent on 22/10/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Jill - thank you so much for the fabulous review! So happy your day was stress-free and enjoyable! Much love to you and Rod xo

I would DEFINITELY recommend Swoon Weddings & Events! Alana was absolutely wonderful, always on point and made it so easy to work with her. She was so professional, answered my questions quickly, followed up and made sure I had all my details in order before the big day, and made time to speak with me any time I needed her. My wedding day went so smoothly because she was there to make sure it did, and it really would not have been as stress free as it was without her. If I had to redo that day (wish I could go back in time and do it again and again!!) I would 100% work with Swoon again without a second thought. Thank you Alana for all your help and hard work!!Sent on 16/08/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Diana - thank you for the wonderful review. I'm so glad you and Roy were able to enjoy the wedding - it went off without a hitch! Thanks again!

Alana was fantastic to work with. I knew that I wanted to plan my wedding, but didn't want to have to deal with any issues or stresses day-of. I think month-of-coordination is a HIGHLY valuable service for a wedding. Alana is warm, friendly, has great attention to detail and put the finishing touches on our day. On our wedding day, we didn't have to stress about anything. My husband and I highly recommend Swoon Weddings & Events to anyone.Sent on 25/07/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much Tabitha! So glad you and Sean were able to have a stress-free day. It was lovely getting to know you both!
Irina · Married on 22/06/2017
Alana was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I did most of our own planning, so we didn't realize how much we needed her the day of until the actual wedding day. We thought everything was already arranged, and she was just there for backup. We were very wrong! Alana played a huge role in making our wedding go by smoothly. Without her our wedding would not have been as awesome as it turned out to be.Sent on 12/07/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much Irina - so happy I could help make the wedding run smoothly for you. It was wonderful to work with you!!

Alana is such a pro at what she does. She is always such a pleasure to meet with, is always excited about the planning process, and is organized beyond belief. Guests at our wedding came away saying it was one of the best they had ever attended, and I credit it almost entirely to Alana. My husband and I were so busy with our jobs in the year leading up to our wedding, and Alana took care of so much for us! I would highly recommend Alana for any wedding or event planning!Sent on 15/07/2017
Swoon Events's reply:I am so happy to hear this Emily! The wedding was beautiful, so thrilled with how everything turned out. I wish you and Dennis all the best as husband and wife!

We hired Alana for her full planning services and I can honestly say it was the best investment we made for our entire wedding. All of her knowledge and expertise was invaluable to planning our wedding. She is so detailed, organized, and just such a nice person too. She always responded so quickly to any questions we had. She was truly there for us throughout the entire process. Our entire family and bridal party raved about her for days after the wedding. I know it wouldn't have been close to what it was without her.Sent on 08/06/2017
It was also such a huge relief to know that she was looking after all the details for months and months before the wedding. All the vendors she recommend were amazing too. Her wedding guide that she makes is so detailed and really impressed our entire family. She did an outstanding job planning the whole wedding - it looked absolutely gorgeous and the whole evening went so smoothy. Alana's assistant, Sara, was also so nice and did an amazing job too. I cannot say enough good things about them. It can be really stressful planning your wedding and I would highly recommend using her to plan the entire thing! Anytime I felt stressed I would just call Alana and my worries would disappear - I knew she always had everything under control. She always gave the best advice and it was such a huge help to have her to go to. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding and just really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much Alana - we couldn't have done it without you!!
Swoon Events's reply:Wow Loren, thank you so much for this review! It has been amazing working with you, I wish you both all the best :)

After speaking to 5 other wedding coordinators, when I first chatted with Alana, she instantly puts you at ease! We hired Alana for month-of-coordination, but she started working right away (about 2 months prior to the wedding). Alana was so easy to talk to, super friendly, professional, replied promptly, and very organized. At our wedding, we put her through name card hell, but she stayed up with her husband the night before to organize them for the wedding day. And even the day of the wedding, I wanted to scrap the name cards because it still was complicated but Alana insisted, and she got the job done! Many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they've been to, and I know that having Alana as our coordinator helped to make that happen. Alana goes above and beyond, and I truly felt that she had my back during the time we worked together. If you are unsure whether you want to invest in a coordinator (I know I was), Alana's prices were VERY reasonable and her value is WELL worth it!Sent on 07/04/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words Alysa! It was an absolute pleasure being a part of your special day. I'm so glad you see the value in having a wedding coordinator and that I could help make your wedding the best it could be. I wish you and Thomas much happiness together!

Alana was a pleasure to work with. She brought a great deal of experience and structure to a crazy process. She helped setup the final schedule, finalized vendor details and was a referee on the day of. Her work certainly helped smooth out some wrinkles the day of.Sent on 16/01/2017

We hired Alana for the month of/day of coordination services and she was a Godsend! My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about her, her work and work ethic. She is very genuine and honestly wants you to have the best wedding possible. Our wedding was bit more on the complicated side as we rented out a venue that literally only came tables and chairs and so we needed an outside caterer, rent linens, cutlery, purchase alcohol, etc. and to add to the mix we DIYed all our decor. Alana oversaw everything. she contacted each vendor the week of and coordinated all their arrival times, ordered anything extra we needed that we didn't know was missing or advised us on what we need to also consider getting. She spent a few hours with us going over the whole wedding agenda and coming up with a full wedding guide. The day of our wedding, we basically just had to walk in - Alana and her assistant handled everything else. Our DIY decor vision was executed to a tee! The place looked gorgeous! From our perspective, the whole day ran smoothly, if any there were any mishaps we had no idea about it. Alana's assistant even sewed my husband's button back onto his tux in a jiffy. Everything was handled. Knowing that you have that peace of mind I believe is extremely important for any couple getting married as we all deserve to enjoy our day. Alana really did just that!!! We highly, highly recommend her! She really knows her stuff and it was nothing but a pleasure to work with her! THANK YOU ALANA!Sent on 06/12/2016
