“To say that Alex went “above and beyond” is a tremendous understatement.”
When people ask my husband and I what our favorite part of wedding planning was, we both look at each other with certainty and declare in unison, “Hiring Alex.” To say that Alex went “above and beyond” is a tremendous understatement. Alex was our: strategic planner, authentic designer, non-judgmental financial advisor, comedienne and provider of hilarious memes, empathetic confidante & therapist, fierce and focused director, emergency bustle expert, personal waitress & bartender, and all things (pre and day of) wedding spirit guide go-to gal. Alex has mastered a system for keeping her clients up to date in real time, eliminating the stress and anxiety of figuring out “what’s next.” She has a trusted network of vendor partners and friends with different price points and styles, and while she provides her own recommendations – she encourages her clients to bring their own favorites to the table to compare services. I could not be happier with the group of vendors that we ended up working with – from pre-wedding customer service to the actual services, each recommended vendor absolutely met and exceeded our expectations. One of the most impressive parts of our experience with Alex is how she tailored the experience of planning to fit our personalities and lifestyle. As busy professionals, we didn’t have time for phone or video calls, to meet up, or even to meet with vendors. Alex understood this and led us through the process ENTIRELY through email. Yes, you read that right. Seriously. We didn’t even do a cake tasting – believe us when we say you can trust Alex and her recommendations 110%. Our first and only phone call with Alex was a few weeks before the big day, and our first bigggg hug was on our wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I had some apprehension about the funky color palette we originally chose (in my heart, I knew I loved it – but my head kept telling me different – to go more neutral/muted). Alex provided an immense amount of reassurance and reminded me to trust her – that it would be amazing. I built an updated vision board leading up to the big day to try to ease my mind and shared it with her + our florist – they validated the design and couldn’t stop talking about how excited they were. My anxiety shifted into excitement, and ultimately – on our wedding day – total awe. When the day came and I finally got to see everything, I couldn’t believe my eyes – it was like everything we wanted and MORE. It was personal, uniquely “us” – and embodied the words + feelings Alex asked us to give her to describe our ideal day from the first moments we started working with her. It was perfect and we are STILL so obsessed with the design and the details. Our family and friends had the very best things to say about our ceremony and reception – and we owe a significant portion of that praise to Alex. She took our hopes, dreams, and vision for our day and turned them into a reality. We will miss our regular “talk to you soon!” emails, and working with Alex to create the most beautiful day of our lives thus far – but we look forward to working with her in the future to help coordinate travel arrangements. If you are having any anxiety about choosing a planner, your design, or anything wedding-related at all – trust me when I say that Alex is your girl. She’s got you. We would choose her over and over and over again. We <3 you, Alex!

“She would respond to emails and texts so quickly and made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with.”
Alex was fantastic to work with for my wedding and I couldn’t recommend her enough! Throughout the entire process, her knowledge of vendors, wedding processes, resources, & recommendations where invaluable! Her recommendations were always thoughtful and within budget and she was never pushy, which allowed me to still come to my own decision. Alex was also super responsive. She would respond to emails and texts so quickly and made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with. She kept us on track with payments and timelines. She even put up with my mom texting her regularly with questions all the way up until my wedding day! Alex is also extremely organized. I don’t know how she did it, but she kept track of all the one off emails/texts I sent her with key information and ensured it was implemented on the big day. I’m so sad the wedding is over, but I’m so happy Alex was a part of it! Highly recommend her for all of your wedding needs 🙂

“Several of my guests commented by saying “it just felt like the whole night was effortless”. That speaks volumes to her work.”
I could not recommend Alex enough. She provided us with complete ease leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself. SHE IS THE BEST! I initially thought I would take on day-of coordination on for my recent wedding and was quick to realize I was way in over my head. I did some planner/coordinator browsing and various wedding websites and stumbled on XO Moreau weddings. I had an initial conversation with Alex about what kind of help I was looking for. My initial concern was decor setup since I was creating a lot of stuff for my wedding. During our conversation, she brought up so many other things I hadn’t even considered that I would need to account for such as tent rentals, timelines, vendor handling, rain plans, etc. During the process she was quick to respond, and if any early fires came up she was ready to resolve them. I could never have had a perfect wedding without her. She will be able to answer every question you have and cover all the things you never thought of. The entire day was flawless because of her help, and several of my guests commented by saying “it just felt like the whole night was effortless”. That speaks volumes to her work.

“I don’t think there is anything she didn’t do for me – from coordinating, to reassuring, to calming me down when I would have little panics!”
To put it simply, I could NOT have survived wedding planning without the help of Alex. She took over for me 2 months before the wedding and just lifted all the weight off my shoulders. She was SO RESPONSIVE any time I would email her (seriously – I have friends who responds to text messages slower haha). She put together an event plan for me and worked out a schedule that I loved. I don’t think there is anything she didn’t do for me – from coordinating, to reassuring, to calming me down when I would have little panics! I can’t recommend her enough. The BEST part about the day was being able to relax and have fun because of her!

“She was so on top of it, professional, and fun.”
Alex was an absolute delight to work with and the best wedding planner we could have ever asked for! We had the most fabulous, beautiful wedding, and wouldn’t have changed a thing. We got her design coordination and day of coordinator package, and I wish I had done the whole planner package because she was so on top of it, professional, and fun. She took our unique Dolly Parton without the rhinestones vision and truly made it come to life with help from vendors and trusty tricks of the trade. I couldn’t recommend Alex and xo moreau weddings more!

“Alex was more than I could have ever asked for.”
If you read all of the positive reviews about Alex, know that no single one of them can adequately capture how amazing she is. While I didn’t use her full services, she provided amazing day-of coordination that went off without a hitch. I met her at the wedding expo in January, which was an entirely overwhelming experience. Her magnificent mane made her stand out in a sea of perfectly coiffed coordinators–that and the assurance that she’d be my personal Kris Jenner. Although I only paid for day-of, she was available from the time I opened communication. About two months prior to the wedding, she sent me a bevy of resources to complete and ensure that I had my bases covered. She reached out to all of my other vendors ahead of time and made sure that everyone was able to reach her at any time. I can’t say enough how communicative, kind, organized, and helpful Alex was with everything. The day of the wedding, I met up with her before guests started arriving to check out all of the flowers and table setups and see that everything was going well. She assuaged any fears I had at that point. The rest of the evening, she made sure that I was able to fully enjoy the best day of my life until that point. At the end of the night, she helped gather everything up and took care of any remaining details that needed to be packaged up. Alex was more than I could have ever asked for. There is no reason you should use anyone else other than XO Moreau. I recommend her to anyone who asks and will continue to do so. Make your life easier: get hitched without a hitch with Alex. Best bulldog momma I’ve had the pleasure of knowing.

“Alexandra Moreau – Best Wedding Planner/Facilitator”
I recently had the pleasure of working with Alexandra Moreau throughout the planning of my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding held in Austin, Texas and it was a wonderful partnership. Having relocated to Austin last spring, my son and daughter-in-law were unfamiliar with Austin wedding venues and service providers so they were very fortunate in finding Alexandra to assist them with their entire wedding planning process. My son and daughter-in-law quickly learned to fully rely on Alex’s expertise to assist in identifying suitable venues and recommend talented service providers who met their specific wedding timeline and budget. They also utilized Alex’s for all wedding support services and schedule site visits/tastings with caterers – all in keeping with my son and daughter-in-law’s vision for their special day. We quickly learned that Alex had wonderful working relationships with a wide team of area service providers and always represented my son and daughter-in-law clearly and professionally. Alex thoughtfully listened and understood my daughter-in-law’s vision template for the entire event and poured much thought into sourcing very particular vendor options accordingly. Her assessments of their services not only saved precious time and money but also allowed my daughter-in-law to enjoy the planning process. Alex’s recommendations came based on her experience, extensive relationships, and detailed research with my son and daughter-in-law’s wish lists in mind. Although Alex made her personal recommendations and offered advice, she allowed the bride and groom to remain in the driver’s seat when making all key decisions for their wedding with the promise that their wedding would be perfect. Alexandra offered full support and assistance on a broad scale during the planning phase and on-site, but personally remained laser focused on our needs and wishes at all times. She is a great communicator and it was always clear that this was “not just another wedding” but that she was fully vested in my son and daughter-in-law’s “perfect day”. We all valued her well-rounded perspective in ultimately looking out for our best interests with personal attention and she was always available to provide as little or as much support as we needed throughout the entire process. I am a seasoned corporate planner with over 30 years of event experience and I take stock in partnering with the best. When my son and daughter-in-law were fortunate enough to partner with Alexandra Moreau, they truly found a gem. She consistently focused on quality, service and 100% customer satisfaction which she fully delivered with kindness, patience, flexibility, and impeccable attention to detail. I believe I speak for all of us in saying we were completely satisfied and impressed with the level of professionalism and event execution Alexandra provided in support of my son and daughter-in-law’s beautiful wedding and I am pleased to highly recommend her services. My son and daughter-in-law truly enjoyed their perfect wedding and we are forever grateful to Alexandra.

“Alex was so patient, kind, and thoughtful”
To all the future brides out there in the Austin Area please please please read this review. I was pretty overwhelmed with the wedding planning process and Alex was so patient, kind and thoughtful. We first spoke on the phone and she told me she wanted to be the wedding planner/coordinator she would have wanted on her wedding day – ok umm sold! She was all that and more. She answered all my family’s many questions and got everything on track for our departure time. She made a floor plan for us, a detailed day-of timeline, helped with vendors (coordinating and recommendations) went through a walk through at the venue with us and answered all of our questions. When the day of rolled around she made sure I was “off duty” and took over to make my wedding day stress free. Alex is a gem, I would even love to be friends with her now that our wedding is over.

“Without a doubt, the best in the biz!!”
I LOVE ALEX! What a blessing she was to have on our big day!
I was stuck in a bind when booking our coordinator but Alex came to the rescue with only two months out. I was so glad she was available on our wedding date. From the moment we had our first call, I knew we were in good hands. She was extremely quick to answer every email, almost too quick 😉 She was knowledgeable, helpful, honest, everything and more! The last 2 weeks would have been a nightmare without her, honestly. Not once, did I get an email from a vendor to confirm anything, because Alex handled absolutely everything so I wouldn’t have to worry about a thing. The big day went by so fast, I didn’t believe people when they told me that. But having Alex and her assistant Rachel there handling all of the little details helped me enjoy my day without worrying how things were going to look or if certain decor would be handled correctly or put in the right spot. She has an eye for detail and made the day feel like a dream. Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about Alex. She’s professional, friendly, honest, and one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met. I want to do this all over again just so I can hire Alex 🙂

“alex is a dream weaver…”
There are no words that can ever truly relay how much Alex is a dream weaver. I found Alex by some miracle after I had recently moved to Austin and literally knew no one. I had a feeling I was going to need some help planning our wedding, but never could’ve dreamed how true that thought was. We ended up hiring Alex for full coordination after some advice from mother in law who is in the event planning industry, and I cannot thank her or Alex enough as I NEVER could’ve done this without them. Alex basically felt like my immediate bff, and if I didn’t know better I would’ve thought we had known each other forever. She was an integral part of every single decision I made, and she always remained calm, cool and collected, even when I asked her 50 questions a day lol! She brought my very detailed vision to life better than I ever could’ve dreamt it. She is hands down the best decision we made for the entire wedding. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and exceeded every single one of our expectations because of Alex going above and beyond and being so invested in understanding what we wanted, down to my very particular lighting requests, to vendor selection, to putting out fires behind the scenes without me ever knowing. She is the coolest chic, with amazing ideas and executes them all flawlessly. I can truly say we love her and cannot recommend her enough to anyone getting married, do yourself a favor and hire Alex, I promise you will not regret it.
– Sarah Mosser
“alex went above & beyond…”
I always told myself I didn’t need a wedding coordinator and that I could easily do it all myself. After realizing the amount of work and details that goes into planning a wedding, let me tell you, I WAS WRONG. I had to move my wedding suddenly due to a family emergency and had only 3 months to plan it all. I probably sent out 30 inquiries to different coordinators in 1 day (a good half of which didn’t even respond at all or responded weeks later) I briefly mentioned my story and I believe Alex was the first to write back within 5 minutes and her first words were “I want to help you”. Alex went above and beyond with coordinating and never made me feel hesitant about asking for help. Anything I asked her to do she immediately jumped on the task. Alex relieved me of a lot of stress and panic, made sure everything was always up to date, provided me a checklist and held me accountable on completing tasks that required my attention. She sent me payment reminders throughout the process to ensure I never missed a deadline. Provided great advice on all aspects of the wedding and helped me understand things as a “guests” perspective. I had a vision for where and how I wanted every piece of decor set up… I never got the chance to tell her what I wanted but trusted that she would make it look great. Everything looked amazing and she put all of the decor exactly where I would’ve wanted. Shes got great design taste! Alex just took full charge and I cant begin to express how happy I am that I picked her as my coordinator. Future Brides, you need Alex as your coordinator. I promise you will not regret it. She was truly amazing and just a good hearted person all around.

“very responsible, professional, friendly, and always kept it fun…”
Alex was AMAZING! She was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process. We were first thinking about not hiring a coordinator, but we are SO glad we did! We recommend to anyone who is on the fence about hiring a coordinator, just DO IT! – and definitely go with XO Moreau. Alex did all of the things we would never have thought of and so much more. She kept us organized and on top of things, and handled all of the logistics (the not so fun parts). Alex was very responsive, professional, friendly, and always kept it fun. On the day of, she was taking care of things that I had no time (or desire) to think about. We were able to remain relaxed and be present in the moment for the entire event. We were never concerned about things getting done because she was so on top of it! It is clear that Alex is passionate about what she does and puts her clients first. She made it possible for us to have the wedding of our dreams. We loved working with her and definitely recommend her!

“she really went above and beyond…”
We booked Alex a few months into her opening this business and she was such a lifesaver! I had a few vendors already booked, but was not enjoying the process at all so we decided to hire a wedding planner. Alex came in and saved the day! She patiently answered questions, helped book additional vendors and offered advice. On the wedding day she was everything and more! My parents and bridal party complimented me on how professional and organized she was. She really went above and beyond to make our day special. She is so on top of being available by phone or email, which I appreciated! Do yourself a favor and book Alex as your wedding planner!
– Liz Koontz
“so organized, professional, responsive, and enthusiastic”
Alex was amazing! She was so organized, professional, responsive, and enthusiastic! She brought a light, positive spin to every bump we encountered along the way. She problem solved and helped us pull off a great reception! So thankful to have found her!
– Taylor McKey
“she was always two steps ahead…”
When I met Alex with my vision of getting married at a state park (not a typical wedding venue) she did not back down. She went above and beyond to help me execute my vision. She was incredibly responsive to my many and sometimes overly wordy emails. She was an amazing problem solver who came to the table with solutions and great ideas. The planning process was smooth and she was always two steps ahead which is oh so important! She was incredibly organized and very communicative. I feel like my wedding was not typical and had a lot of moving parts and Alex managed everything like the pro she is. The day of the wedding was perfect because of Alex and I highly recommend hiring her as your planner. It will be the best decision a bride can make!
– Crystal Neilan
“alex was amazing, very professional…”
Alex was amazing, very professional and helped my daughters wedding reception run smoothly. She had it down and managed all of our vendors seamlessly! Thank you Alex. We couldn’t have done it without you!
– Leslie Alexander
“alex went above and beyond…”
We loved Alex from the get go. We interviewed a few people before deciding on her and knew her personality was perfect for us. She was very organized (type A but calm and kind) and made sure to ask us the questions she needed from us instead of waiting for us to figure it out. We were on a strict budget so we decided on day-of coordination (but she made sure we could contact her with any questions from the moment we hired her). Our venue had very strict rules so she made a timeline and helped us navigate the contracts so we could have a seamless wedding day. She understood our vision and made sure it came to life exactly how we wanted. Alex went above and beyond (literally running around the venue) to make sure our day was absolutely perfect.
– Amber Carroll
“hardworking, professional, detail-oriented, super organized…”
Hiring a wedding planner is always a tough decision, as a bride, it’s hard finding the right person to trust with helping you plan for such an important day. I found Alex from xo moreau weddings & events and it was the BEST decision during my wedding planning process. Alex is not only hard-working, professional, detail-oriented, and super organized, but is also super friendly and sweet! Whether your wedding is in a year or in four months, she is capable of helping you organize the wedding you have always dreamed of. She is also very quick to respond to your questions or concerns. If I would go back and start all over again, I would not hesitate hiring Alex again! If you want someone that you can trust and make you feel at ease-then you should definitely hire her! You will NOT regret it! . Alex goes above and beyond for her clients!! We quickly realized how much she enjoys what she does and how passionate she is about helping you have the beautiful wedding of your dreams. We loved having her be a part of our wedding and we definitely recommend her!!
