“Investing in Alex was the best decision we ever made.”
Where to begin!? Investing in Alex was the best decision we ever made. She seriously knows her stuff. I learned so much just from asking her a million questions! She is so professional and so talented and so much FUN to work with! She respected our budget and worked hard to find amazing vendors that were perfect for our personality. She was able to zero-in on what made us unique and translate that into a wedding. It was amazing to watch her work! When COVID-19 hit, our plans fell to pieces. She took the pieces and turned them into art. We had to cancel our Marfa wedding and decided to get married in Austin later in the year. Alex was there every step of the way and helped us close out contracts and plan a second wedding. She was so professional. Even when the pandemic was at its worst, she was quick to respond and up-to-date on the latest regulations for weddings. Throughout the process, I trusted her completely with all of the logistics and she did NOT disappoint. Ultimately, we decided to scrap the second wedding because COVID was still very much an issue. I was so afraid to tell Alex because we had worked so hard and for so long on my dream wedding. She completely understood and suggested we have a private elopement. Within two weeks, in the middle of a pandemic, Alex brought to life the most amazing elopement for my husband and me. it was unbelievable, I am still on cloud nine. I don’t know how she does it. She is unbelievably talented, smart, and probably could be a therapist by now! Do yourself a favor and hire this gal while you can — she is going places.

“She is an expert in her field, but more than that, she really cares about her clients and does everything she can to make their dream weddings a reality.”
Alex is absolutely amazing!!! I hired her as a full-time planner for my April 2020 wedding, which was postponed to January 2021. Throughout the entire process, Alex is/has been everything I could want in a wedding planner. She is organized, detail-oriented, stylish and empathetic. I’ll be honest — I have had a difficult time with wedding planning (even before having to postpone). I have a hard time making decisions and can be easily flustered. Alex has been an absolute angel with helping me through this. She takes the time to talk through my options, provide her recommendations and is completely understanding when I start to have a little freak out. She has a calming presence and knows how to help me prioritize certain aspects of what I want without sacrificing my “dream wedding.” She really understood my personality and exactly what I envisioned right from the beginning, plus she brings her own awesome ideas and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. We had to postpone our wedding about 2 weeks before it was supposed to happen. Everything was done and ready to go, and I was crushed. However, I was confident that Alex would be there to help me and would handle everything, and I was right. Alex didn’t miss a beat — she quickly connected with all of my vendors (over 20!) and aligned them all for our new date. I genuinely don’t think I could have handled those logistics on my own. I cannot recommend Alex highly enough. She is an expert in her field, but more than that, she really cares about her clients and does everything she can to make their dream weddings a reality. I can’t wait for our new date in January — I know it will go perfectly thanks to Alex! She has saved me so many hours of stress, acted as a sounding board, and has shown compassion toward me in the way a friend would. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, do not think twice and just hire Alex — you will NOT regret it!

“We didn’t just get a wedding planner with Alex — we also gained an awesome friend as well!”
If I could give Alex six stars, I would. From our initial meeting all the way to days after the wedding, she was absolutely amazing!! To start, Alex was able to execute our vision perfectly in her design board after a few initial conversations. From there, she guided us along in the process of selecting vendors and asking all of the right questions. She even has an onboarding document with all of the “need to know” things for a wedding and kept everything organized in Google Docs that we could access at any time. We had a long engagement, but Alex was great about touching base regularly to make sure things stayed on track. After Covid hit, I have no idea what we would’ve done without her. She was the calming voice of reassurance for us and made sure things still went off without a hitch and kept us updated on local mandates/regulations. On the day of our wedding, Alex was an absolute rockstar. She made sure everyone knew their role, all guests followed guidelines and made sure all was well with me and my fianceé. Anything we needed, she was right there and ready to take on. We will also be using Alex’s travel agency for our honeymoon next year because we know she will help us plan an amazing trip. We didn’t just get a wedding planner with Alex — we also gained an awesome friend as well! She is the sweetest and funniest person and made us feel so at ease and comfortable with the entire wedding process! We wish we could have another wedding just to do it all over again!

“She was born to do this.”
I really have no idea where to begin in this review for Alex Moreau with XO Moreau. She was born to do this. From start to finish, navigating the wedding planning during a worldwide pandemic (which no one has experience with…) she was absolutely amazing. She somehow never seemed to get rattled and that went a LONG way when I was completely unsure how to move forward with our day. Through the ups and downs, and after some intense, game time decisions, we ended up with a stunning, magical event, representative of us as a couple and truly something so above and beyond what we envisioned. She’s super chill, but whip-smart and extremely productive… it’s the best combination of “full confidence + go getter/make it all happen asap”, mixed with “low anxiety, let’s take this step by step and make great decisions” approach. Creatively, she’s an absolute original. She won’t put someone in a box and will take your vision to the next level. She went above and beyond for our custom design items and I couldn’t believe how awesome they turned out. Day of, her management was a freaking 11 out of 10. We have a crazy group of friends, including ourselves, and she handled everything flawlessly. If you are contemplating hiring Alex, all I have to say is get her while you can, because this gal has got to be in the highest demand. She is so very talented and we feel so lucky. THANK YOU ALEX 4EVERRRR.

“Alex has a way of making you feel like you’ve known her your entire life, the ease with which she takes in information you give her and executes your ideas however crazy they seem so effortlessly is a true skill.”
A True Treasure, or as I liked to call her Tesorito. Thank you, Alex, for your smile. I wish I could package it up and send it to all, especially these days. We were lucky enough to get our wedding in early this year and for that we are grateful but we are more grateful that we had the opportunity to share that “epic”(Alex’s words) day with all those that we love and in that bunch we include Alex. She has a way of making you feel like you’ve known her your entire life, the ease with which she takes in information you give her and executes your ideas however crazy they seem so effortlessly is a true skill. We had a lot of moving parts in our wedding, a big location, with lots of people and some logistical roadblocks but she made it all happen. I most appreciate her having constant communication with me, there was never a time that I had to send her multiple emails following up on items. I was glad to have her as a partner in helping me navigate the unknown that is the wedding planning process. She kept me on track and held me accountable for my part and that is something I needed. She did everything with style and grace she was not there to sell me on anything or try and take over, she was there for what seemed like as a friend. A very prompt, responsible, and hard-working friend nonetheless a friend. Thank you, Alex. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy my time as a bride.

“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 🙂
– Alicia & Ben
“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!
– Touyen & Jimmie
“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!
– Caitlin & Max
“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.

“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.”
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.
– Casey & Phillip
“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!
– Megan & Matt
“Alex went above and beyond to help me execute my vision.”
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 & Barry
“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!!
