We knew from the moment that we got engaged that we wanted to get married in New Orleans. We're from Arizona and had called a couple planners to help us with our big day. We landed on Lulu when we knew that we had a great conversation and that she understood exactly what we wanted and who we were as a couple.
There were only a few must haves on our list--- open bar and a second line. She was helpful in finding a ceremony place and reception place even though we seemed to already have in mind what we want but ended up loving her ideas better. We needed to make sure our guests had the best time and that's exactly what they had. We're still hearing from our guests a month later on how amazing the reception room looked, how perfect the ceremony was and how much fun the "parade" was.
Lulu made all of this happen and we couldn't have asked for a better planner to help us put together our dream day.

Being an out of town bride, I knew I was going to struggle with planning my wedding and knowing the best vendors in New Orleans. I actually discovered Weddings by Lulu on The Knot and decided to give Lulu a call. Immediately after talking with her, I knew she would be the perfect planner for me. I have a tendency to feel overwhelmed and she immediately put me at ease. We used all of her recommendations for vendors and everyone was great! Lulu was very organized and even created a timeline for me and my groom on the day of. Being from out of town, I put a lot of trust in Lulu and I'm so glad I did. I could not have asked for a more amazing wedding. Everything was fabulous and even better than I could ever dream of. All of our guests are still raving about our wedding. We could not have done it without her!

Lulu is like a bride's fairy godmother. Anything you can dream of, Lulu will make it a reality. She helped create the wedding of my dreams. If you want to show up the day of your wedding and know that everything will be perfect Lu is your girl. She really is so amazing and I am very picky. I can't say enough good about her. If New Orleans is your destination, Lulu is the obvious choice.

As far as I'm concerned my wedding day was perfect. We have had nothing but rave reviews from all of our friends & family.Lu made sure that everything came together perfectly. It rained the morning of our wedding, but she assured me that it would stop and my courtyard ceremony & second line would go as planned & boy was she right ! Lu has a very laid back and reassuring demeanor which has a calming effect, which is great especially when dealing with me, as I tend to worry and get hyped up. It was actually my husband who found Lulu and spoke with her on the phone after I told him that I really needed some professional help with pulling everything together after months of planning on our own. I too was sold after our initial consult. She quickly made great recommendations for anything we had not yet confirmed & helped me make some important decisions regarding my ceremony & second line musicians that turned out to be so important. She was always available by phone, text, email & even facebook, Lu really helped me out when the florist I had already paid a deposit to, could not satisfy me with the table decoration options to create the vision that I had. Lu recommended someone who was more affordable & the tables were absolutely beautiful. Lu also worked well with all of my vendors, not just the ones she referred me to. She created a pinterest board so that we could share ideas. During the days before the wedding, when my anxiety was rising, she was so helpful. She ran the rehearsal & came to pick up all of the DIY stuff I had done, while I was busy hosting a welcome party. On the day of the wedding she made sure that my Pastor made it from the Airport to the venue & even had had another officiant on standby in case his flight was delayed because of the weather. Also in the hours before the wedding one of her assistants was at my side the entire time. She is very detail oriented, responsive, and listens to what is important to you & respectfully makes suggestions.

Lulu is great! I would recommend her to anyone. She is extremely sweet and very creative. We could not have done it without her! I had confidence with her since we first spoke and she never disappointed. She was always responsive no matter the time of day. We had many additions to our wedding day that all came together perfectly from the ceremony to the 2nd line to the dinner. She came thru on a bunch of last minute additions we had decided on also. Lulu and her assistants were a wonderful addition to our wedding day. I am so glad to have had her and her team. She is a MUST have!!

Lu is fantastic, sweet, and everything else nice that everyone has already said about her. I decided to hire a DOC after I had already booked most of my vendors, but Lulu was so helpful in recommending vendors and answering my millions of questions, even though it wasn't part of the package that I hired her for. She also helped my father in law find a spot for our rehearsal dinner when our original location fell through, and helped my husband and I pick our honeymoon spot. On the day of, she was checking in with me to make sure I was feeling good, if I needed anything, making sure we were on schedule, etc. And she always did it with a smile on her face and in the most calm manner possible. Her assistant Ashley is fantastic as well, she went out of her way to come pick up all of my ridiculous, glittery, DIY projects a few days before the wedding (I probably owe her a carwash/vaccuum!). It was awesome to just let them take over and not have to worry. Everything went perfectly...and I'm not sure, but it's possible that Lu has an in with mother nature because the weather was perfect as well! Couldn't have asked for a better day and Lu was a HUGE part of that, I HIGHLY recommend her service.

Weddings by Lulu: professional, dependable, proficient, affordable,
Lu took all of the pressure off of myself and and my fiance' during the week of our wedding. We could not have been more excited. Being a destination wedding in New Orleans, we were extremely concerned that the days that we arrived ahead of time would be taken over with last minute details. Lu met with us on Thursday before our Saturday wedding and in those few minutes we were able to confirm the very few last minute details. I like many brides have a controlling personality but within weeks I was able to relenquish all trust to Lu and allow her to create our Dream Day. Lu's team of assistants were also very professional and proficient in executing the details so that you can enjoy your day. Lu uses many tools to create and execute your ideas such as: email, pinterest, photo text, the knot, etc.
Lu created a pinterest board for us to pin ideas for our wedding. This created our dream wedding. We pinned our vision for flowers, decor, color palettes, down to details such as signage, wedding invitations, menus. (the great thing about pinterest is you can involve your mom/sister/future MIL) The great thing about using her is you have unlimited communication. I, myself, work during the day and run a company so being able to email back and forth during late hours was ideal for me. I was fortunate to have the pleasure of meeting Lu early on. Although, I had picked a location prior to booking Lu, I chose her all inclusive service. This service provided a florist, photographer, officiant, dj, welcome bags, musicians for the ceremony, and her decor inventory. Lu has unlimited inventory of her own which helps prevent having to using event rental companies who can be difficult at times to work with. Weddings by lu is by far best choice for for a destination wedding. I never could have dreamed planning a wedding with no stress. I cannot recommend Weddings by Lulu enough.

Wedding Planner Extraordinaire: Weddings by LuLu
Grade: A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ (book her now)

-I booked Lu about 8 months before the wedding and I was instantly amazed. The things that took me 2 weeks to accomplish she did in 2 days. I was constantly e-mailing and texting her, and I'm certain I was one of the most irritating brides she's ever had. (I just checked my gmail and I sent her 73 pages of e-mail - bahahaha).but I wanted to mix a tiny bit of DIY with the wedding and she was game. However, that doesn't mean she didn't have back ups. For example, all of the decor I shipped was broken (and yes we found out about 2 days before the wedding). . .Lu was prepared and just replaced my stuff with her stuff. . .no fuss, no problem.

She is the picture of calm! During the rehearsal she was so calm and almost soothing, when I was really nervous and irritated with the lateness of family and friends. She really kept us organized and on time (this was my #1 pet peave is a late wedding).

The day of the wedding Lu had THREE ASSISTANTS - mind you I only had about 85 people. One was in my room and 2 were helping her set up. The assistant in my room sewed my sisters dress (it was suddenly 3 sizes too big) and kept hair and makeup on time.

Most importantly, we had booked Rebirth and they DIDN"T show - but no one noticed. Lu did not run around frantically and noone bothered us. When our wedding was done, we still had a second line - and no I have NO earthly idea how she pulled that off, but she did!

I have promised all of my family members that when they get married I am buying Lu for them. . .seriously! The e-mail I wrote to Lu was that I never thought I could have/nor that we could afford to have the wedding she gave us.

What can I say about Lu Alexander? She is FANTASTIC and was incredible when it came to helping me create the vision that I wanted for my wedding. She answered all of my questions, made me aware of things that I may not have initially thought of in the midst of the entire wedding planning process, and offered suggestions when needed.

I'm terrible with details and as on OOT bride, I was anxious in the few months before my wedding about how I could possibly plan for everything that was required. Lu took care of all of that for me. I told her the theme of our wedding and I shared pictures with her of what I envisioned our "look" to be and she executed it all flawlessly. Our reception was BEAUTIFUL - from the table decor to the guest book table to our sweets table and even our signage (which she created herself!) It really was everything I had envisioned, and then some. Lu also provided me and my wedding party with a wedding day timeline that was very helpful in keeping us on time and making us aware of what to expect.

When I had originally hired Lu I was very disillusioned with the planner that I had first hired (then subsequently fired) so naturally, I had my reservations about bringing another planner on board. You do not have to feel that way about Lu! I would encourage anyone who is looking into hiring a wedding planner to definitely consider bringing her on board!

Lu is patient, efficient, VERY organized, creative, reliable, and resourceful! I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and you should too!

I owe much of the success of how my wedding day turned out to her. I really cannot say enough great things about her. Thank you for all of your hard work!

I was an Out Of Town (OOT) Bride that didn't know New Orleans too well but KNEW in my heart I wanted to get married there. I did a lot of research on the web as well as on here looking for the right person who could help me plan and take care of all the local details for me (since I was in California). I chose to work with Miss Lulu. I felt really comfortable with her. She has a calm and soothing voice and I felt like she really understood my stress when it came to planning an OOT wedding. She was very responsive in her communications with me. This is so important because if you are an OOT bride you want to know you can reach your wedding planner when emergencies or questions arise. She has this intuitive sense of wedding design. This was literally the coolest part of working with her.Miss Lulu took all my inspirations + ideas and was able to translate them into my wedding style. So, if you're a bride that "kinda, sorta, maybe" thinks something might work, Miss Lulu is perfect to work with.She can pick up on your wedding style pretty quickly.Based on my budget I chose to get the FQ (French Quarter) All Inclusive Special. It included everything that I needed to have plus some nice little extras. One of the biggest draws of this package is that it included handling the permitting for the 2nd line parade. I also chose this package because it was customizable to the size of my wedding party and of my guest list (my husband actually told me we saved money by going this route- so HE was REALLY HAPPY about that! It was the best value considering what we could've spent). The vendors Miss Lulu works with are top notch. Everything came out beautifully. My guests were wowed and everyone commented on what a fun + amazing wedding it was. Overall my experience working with Miss Lulu was a very positive one.

So, if you're a bride that "kinda, sorta, maybe" thinks something might work, Miss Lulu is perfect to work with.She can pick up on your wedding style pretty quickly.Based on my budget I chose to get the FQ (French Quarter) All Inclusive Special. It included everything that I needed to have plus some nice little extras. One of the biggest draws of this package is that it included handling the permitting for the 2nd line parade. I also chose this package because it was customizable to the size of my wedding party and of my guest list (my husband actually told me we saved money by going this route- so HE was REALLY HAPPY about that! It was the best value considering what we could've spent). The vendors Miss Lulu works with are top notch. Everything came out beautifully. My guests were wowed and everyone commented on what a fun + amazing wedding it was. Overall my experience working with Miss Lulu was a very positive one. Read less

(A+++) A MUST HAVE! I originally made inquiries with many local planners before meeting Lu and I never got a good vibe from anyone and seemed like just another bride to them. I then thought I would try to do it all myself. I got to the last few months before the wedding and solicited help from weddingsbylulu. She made me feel like I was the only bride in the world and it did not matter what my budget was, my wedding would be special to her and everyone else. Lu is always available to talk with and kept me on track. She has literally responded to me when I emailed her at midnight during my planning process! She truly takes time to get to know you and saw my vision and executed it impeccably. Lu is reasonably priced, dependable, and pleasant to deal with. She was totally reliable in my last minute emergencies, kept me on time, gave me suggestions and helped me to stay on budget. For the wedding she outlined the day in 10 minute increments so that at every moment I knew what to expect would be happening and her and her assistants made sure it all went as planned. My 20 month old son was having a temper tantrum minutes before the walk down the aisle and Lu’s assistant located his diaper bag on the other side of the church in minutes to get his favorite snack and located the person I needed to babysit him. Her design for my décor was beyond what I imagined. Hiring Lu was the best wedding planning decision I made.

I was a California bride who had our wedding in New Orleans. I am an accountant and so I needed someone who would be organized and provide a sense of confidence in executing our vision.

My fiancé and I interviewed many wedding planners, and finally settled on Lulu Alexander when she made us feel like we weren't just another wedding to get through. Her website design and colors also sealed the deal because we felt it was indicative of her professionalism, creativity, and tech saviness. We planned most of the wedding ourselves and hired Lulu to do day of wedding coordination, flowers, and decor, but she has provided more service than that. I would send her long emails and we would have telephone discussions about setup, timing, and vendor suggestions.

Lulu has a calm demeanor. This came into play when it rained twice on our wedding day. She created beautiful flower arrangements and put together the dining tables beautifully. Her team was comforting especially when the guest transportation was 30 minutes late. She has done so much for us, that I cannot possibly write down everything.

Overall, I would recommend Lulu as a wedding planner.

I was impressed from my initial contact with LuLu - I loved how quickly and thoroughly she responded to emails, and that she followed up on my questions and concerns.

I planned my wedding during my third year of law school and the weeks leading up to the wedding were also final exams and the holidays - LuLu really took away any stress I had about all of the planning during those times so that I could focus on studying, and she stayed in contact while I was out of town, contacting all of my vendors in the weeks before the wedding to confirm. Though we had hired her for "day-of" coordination, she went above and beyond that one day of work for sure. In the days leading up to the wedding, I also was in contact with Lu's assistant Ashley, who was also very professional. I didn't meet Lu or Ashley until my wedding day, but they were really pros at everything they did. With two coordinators, there can be one person supervising set-up at the wedding site while the other keeps things on track in the getting-ready areas. I really liked this dynamic. The smallest details were covered - I loved the fact that LuLu brought a ring polisher to my hotel room for me to use, that they kept track of my flat shoes for when my feet started aching, and that every little wedding detail made it home to us - cards, toasting flutes, even my bouquet wrap and broach.

Finally, I'll say that the best thing about LuLu is that everything went totally smoothly on my wedding day (or if it didn't, I didn't hear about it, which was how I wanted it). Despite chilly weather, vases and programs blowing away, and a vendor who decided not to honor her contract, my wedding day was stress-free and wonderful.

I was very disappointed in Lulu's services. I hired Lulu because she had great reviews online. Our initial phone conversation was great. Shortly after that, I started having doubts. But I convinced myself that it was ok because her reviews were so good and I thought things were going to turn around. Unfortunately, they never did. The biggest problem I had was that she was an hour late to a meeting we had scheduled with another vendor the week of my wedding (it was a destination wedding). So we had to have the meeting without her. The morning of the wedding no one could contact her for a few hours. While she was at the wedding she was rude to a few guests. It was totally unprofessional. In addition, she was unresponsive - weeks would go by and I often had to follow-up multiple times before she'd respond to my emails. She was not attentive - I would email her with important details and she would ask about them later as if I never told her. She was not detailed - the floor plan that was part of the contract was completely unusable (it had seating for 30 more people than we had). After the wedding, she was supposed to collect some of the things that I brought and a bunch of votives never made it back. From start to finish, working with Lulu was frustrating and a disaster.
