Tracy and her whole team at TFC are phenomenal. As an excited bride and one who has been planning her big day for years and years, I attempted to plan my dream destination wedding on my own. However, I quickly became overwhelmed with how to go about planning the wedding in a... Read More different country. At first, I did not want to go through the expense of hiring a planner, but I AM SO GLAD I DID! From day one Tracy made me feel comfortable and took off a lot of stress. She had everything organized from day 1 up until the big day. Tracy thought of every detail and made sure that everything was how I had dreamed it up to be. On the day of the wedding, Tracy took care of EVERYTHING. I did not have to worry about one thing. She watched the time and made sure everything was done according to the timeline. She was such a huge help to have in Mexico and literally was a wedding planner angel! I had even forgot my garter and did not realize till wedding day, but not to worry Tracy and her team were able to get one before the wedding started. She helped the guests plan flights and hotel room stays. By the time the guests got to Mexico, everything was taken care of from transportation to and from the hotel, to room accommodations and all! Tracy is truly amazing at what she does and she fights for every little thing you hope and dream for, even if the resort gives a little pushback, she works her magic! I truly do not think I would have had the dream wedding I had always hoped for had it not been for Tracy and her team. I will be forever grateful and Tracy has truly become a part of the family!

Tracy and TFC was really great at assisting us with our destination wedding planning arrangements. When we first got engaged we didn't really know where to start or what we even wanted as far planning a wedding goes. Tracy and her staff was able to assist us by planning the...

Without her help and knowledge I don't know what we would have done or if a wedding would have even happen in the time frame we wanted because my wife and I are really busy people with busy work schedule but Tracy and her staff was also able to assist us outside of business hours to make sure we got everything we needed for the our wedding day.

Tracy and her staff were phenomenal. I cannot say enough, and would give them ten stars if I could. They were wonderful throughout--responsive, professional, and fun to work with--but they really shone when last minute events (weather and construction) forced us to change venues... Read More four days before our wedding. Remarkably, the switch was seamless and completely stress-free for my husband and me; Tracy handled everything! And the results were dazzling. Tracy has such great taste that we were very comfortable leaving all of the specifics in her hands. When we saw the finished product (print work, signage, flowers, table design, favors), it was even better than we'd imagined. She captured exactly what we wanted, but did even better. We are so grateful we found her, and would recommend her and her team to anyone!

Tracy French made my dream wedding a reality. Having a destination wedding can be very stressful and difficult to plan from afar especially when you make it a double wedding.

Tracy and her team made our wedding magical and our lives easier! Tracy helped me plan my Texas wedding while I was living in Alabama! She was extremely accommodating and flexible to my schedule and did not overlook a single detail. Our wedding was so smooth and we were able to... Read More enjoy every single moment. We literally had no issues and just breezed through the entire thing! I knew Tracy was amazing, but what I loved most were the compliments I received from my guests about her and her team. Even the groomsmen mentioned how amazing and smooth the wedding was! The amount of detail and effort from her team was incredible. From the decor to napkins to all of our vendors. You really do not realize everything that goes into a wedding! I truly do not believe we could have done it without her! I've been to weddings where guests were waiting around, the party died out etc... This was not the case, the ceremony flowed into cocktail hour, to the first dance, dinner, etc and it was just a seriously fun night that never dragged. I STILL get compliments about the wedding. Tracy also made sure everything was in place, organized, and beautiful. She has an eye for this and it shows. The best part about this entire process is that my husband and I look back at our wedding day and feel like it was the best day of our lives. Thank you, Tracy!

Overall, we were very happy with the TFC team and the support they provided for our destination wedding in the Hill Country. It was a learning experience for all of us as we think we were her first same-sex wedding. As such, some of our visions were not necessarily... Read More "traditional." Like a Cher lookalike drag queen who performed at the reception. It was long-distance planning for us, so it was nice to have "boots on the ground" nearby with access to local and nearby vendors. We were especially pleased with Tracy's recommendation of a photographer. He was terrific. On the day of the event, the TFC team took all the worry off our shoulders and executed everything seamlessly. All our guests had a spectacular experience.

Tracy French of the French Connection was hired to help with my daughter's wedding reception at the Pearl! She did an outstanding job and allowed the family to enjoy the wedding day instead of handling all the vendors ourselves. After signing-the contract with... Read More Tracy, she met with us on three separate occasions for two plus hours each time. She covered every aspect of the reception while finding out the bride and groom wishes. At these meetings she was gracious, patient, and helpful in offering suggestions. She gave the bride a binder that included a timeline and a wealth of information to keep her organized. Tracy has preferred vendors, but allowed us to choose some of our own vendors. She willingly worked with our caterer and DJ. We chose her preferred florist, cake lady, and linen service. We were very pleased with these vendors and would highly recommend them. Tracy and her team spent the wedding day at the Pearl meeting vendors and overseeing set up. We were thrilled with the results when we arrived at six after the wedding. Any problems that occurred were solved without us being involved. When the reception ended, the leftover cake was boxed up as well as all decorations we had provided and wanted to keep. Without Tracy French, we would have been there packing up for another hour ourselves. Tracy French was our best decision in planning the wedding. She is a pro at relieving bride and family stress and you can trust her to help you plan a fairy tale wedding. Trust me, you will love her.

The French Connection Events were great to work with, they were very flexible and accommodating to our schedule, though do only work on the weekdays in regards to face to face meetings. They were very professional as well and very responsive, usually by email. The aesthetic of... Read More the wedding was exactly how I imagined it. She recommended a great photographer, venue and caterer. However, there were some details that could have been better taken care of, for example, our out of country invitations were returned to us as they did not have enough postage. There was a wedding custom that we did not know about that she did not mention to us (probably because she assumed we knew to invite the wedding priest to our reception but we did not know this and ended up inviting him last minute--she did have our guest list and seating arrangement though and should have seen that he was not on it). And finally, during the wedding reception, our families were not all present for the cake cutting ceremony --I personally think that it should have been her responsibility (she also had several helpers with her during our reception) to make sure that they were there before that happened. She did help us out in a pinch at the reception by getting more alcohol for us as we thought we were running low, so that was great.

I found Tracy French online - her proposal seemed fair and inclusive so I chose her as my planner. Overall, Tracy was a tremendous contributor to the success of our special day. I believe in both praise and food for thought for other brides choosing a planner, so I'm providing a... Read More bit of both: 1) Tracy is very well connected in the San Antonio wedding community. She has relationships with preferred vendors, whom in a few cases gave me preferred pricing. I will ALWAYS be grateful to Tracy for finding my photographer, videographer, caterer, cake artist, and rentals company. 2) Tracy is very organized (as any excellent planner should be). Each of our planning sessions were productive and to the point. I felt at ease knowing we had combed through the details together and she would ensure there was nothing I was forgetting. 3) As part of her package, Tracy's team managed the venue decor set up and take down. They did an AMAZING job. I have been to many weddings when the family is tasked with cleaning up after the event ends - not a fan. My family was able to enjoy the full wedding as Tracy's team had it covered. A few items to note: 1) Tracy's services are best suited for a bride with an expansive budget. I spent a little over $40,000 on my wedding and was regularly reminded that I was a 'budget bride'. I did not take this personally, I know Tracy was only trying to help me make good choices with my budget, but this is an important point when choosing a planner. 2) Tracy has in house vendors to choose from - very affordable but less information up front about their skills/background. We chose our DJ through Tracy and he was very well priced, but mediocre at best. This is nothing against Tracy personally - she offers these options to brides when they want to allocate more dollars to other things. Bottom line: Tracy and her team and wonderful. I would absolutely recommend her again. There is something tremendous to be said for a planner whose reputation surpasses her and who can lift the stress off a bride's shoulders. Thank you for everything, Tracy.
