I hired lulu to be my day of planner and she was amazing!! She came into play about two weeks prior and completely took over with vendors and made the last days before the wedding so stress free. She helped with our rehearsal and was so on point with questions, recommendations and timing. On the day of her assistant was also there and they just made everything do easy. She really went above and beyond with DIY and making sure all items got back to our hotel room. She is direct with what you need and has a very high standard of service.

I sourced Lulu for our elopement to New Orleans. Even though our event was small (bride, groom and our grown son) we still wanted more than just a ceremony (romantic courtyard venue, officiant for the service, horse drawn carriage, jazz band, beautiful flowers for the site, bouquet and boutonnieres, hair and makeup, photography, dinner, cake).
Lulu is an intelligent, thoughtful, savvy and gracious wedding planner. Her knowledge and attention to detail is exceptional. She provided excellent recommendations for vendors and had practical suggestions for all aspects of our wedding.
Planning from afar is always difficult, and Lulu's understanding of the city and the arrangements needed meant everything came together in true New Orleans style - relaxed, personal, great food, great music, historic setting, and great people to work with throughout the day! I could not have asked for more - I think she even organized perfect weather somehow!
Lulu and I communicated via email and finally met the day before the wedding - she had it all organizes and offered insightful recommendations about timing and the flow of the day. She arrived early on our day and made sure all details were in place - and that the vendors were all apprised of the plans. Lulu had negotiated many aspects of the day on our behalf exceedingly well and I felt as if I had a guardian angel with me at every step - right down to making sure the train of my gown missed any inadvertent puddles.

I cannot recommend her services highly enough - she is truly a lovely lady inside and out, with a keen understanding of the industry and the beautiful city she calls home. I feel fortunate to have found her amongst the many wedding planners available. I sincerely believe she is the best there is!

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!

We interviewed several Wedding Planners when we started planning our destination wedding in New Orleans but clicked with Lulu right away. She is so calm and knowledgeable she just immediately put me at ease about the fact that we were trying to plan a destination wedding for 150 people from 3 different countries without being able to visit before-hand! We hired her right away. She gave such great descriptions of our possible venues and even took pictures for us so we could pick the perfect place for our wedding. And every other decision was just as informed and easy to make. All her vendor recommendations were excellent. When we arrived in town for the wedding 10 months later everything was laid out perfectly for us. Each vendor knew what to do and when to do it, our flowers and décor were gorgeous and our wedding day was just perfection. All our guests gushed about this being the best wedding they had ever been to and that was in large part because of Lulu’s amazing attention to detail, and the loving care she seemed to treat each aspect of our wedding with.

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.
