Mandy and her team were simply fabulous, from our very first meeting she intuitively understood our vision and created the most magical day we will treasure for a lifetime. Everything was completely in hand from the most basic admin details through to the really special touches that our guests still talk about today. People may question whether they really need a planner, they may not, but everyone needs Alago Events, they are truly amazing!
- Ro & JamesRo & James
Our venue provided the most beautiful backdrop to our wedding we could ever have dreamed of. Mandy and her team at Alago Events created a magical fairytale under the olive trees that us and all our guests will remember for the rest of our lives. Every person who came commented on the fact that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and I for one believe them! Mandy's attention to detail and the venue's beautiful vistas in every direction combined to create a truly fairytale wedding. We cannot thank Mandy and her amazing team and everyone who worked at the venue enough for ensuring our magical day went without a hitch.
Love from us both,
James and Ro X

My now husband and I feel so fortunate to have had Mandy and the team at Alago Events plan our wedding. We found it a struggle to find the right words to explain just how much of a wonderful experience it was. The level of professionalism was there from the get go- making us feel like we were in safe and knowledgable hands. Planning an aboard wedding was always a dream, but we were so overwhelmed by the logistics; until we met Mandy. Every element of our day was planned out and considered- I have honestly never felt so taken care of.
Even from the first Skype call I felt an instant connection- I was able to relax and take in this special time. Mandy made us feel so at ease and ensured the entire journey from engagement to wedding day was not only seamless, but FUN!
I felt almost guilty at what a laid back bride I had become! Mandy was not only our planner but she became a friend and a calm and reassuring presence in what could have otherwise been a stressful time.
I was always valued, my emails, texts or calls always answered and every single expectation exceeded.
My dream wedding started off with a location - mallorca. But through Mandy's guidance, impeccable taste and understanding of what makes a great weekend - she created a day full of surprises, memories and beautiful details.
Alago events and Mandy like a military operation but the focus was always on My husband and I - making sure we were enjoying ourselves. I think back to the process of planning the wedding with such joy - it was full of great food, laughter, creativity and most importantly - heart.
Thank you all so much! And as cheesy as it sounds it's true - you made our dreams a reality and created memories that will last a lifetime!
All our Love & gratitude;
Sophie and Alex Potter ❤️

Our wedding was basically a 3 day event.... we hired a catamaran for our guests on day one, we had meet and greet drinks and nibbles on the evening of day 2 and day 3 was our big day. Every one of these ran like clockwork and amazed our guests.... and us. Mandy and her team organised every detail.
During the process I panicked and did the thing I thought brides were meant to do where they stress out, I told Mandy and she laughed and calmed me down knowing there was zero reason for my worries, she had it all under control. I never ever saw her panic and that filled me with huge confidence, she said to me 'if you see me worry, then you can worry' and I never did. I believed she would sort any problem and make it work.
I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding to be and look like.... times that by 10 and that's what Mandy produced. I have not stopped being told that mine was the best wedding that my guests have been to and I have to agree. From start to finish it was fun, elegant and basically everything you could want. We can honestly say we had the time of our lives and it's down to Alago events. They organised an event that we can be proud of for the rest of our lives, and we can cherish the memories, remembering what a perfect week we had in beautiful Mallorca. Thank you isn't enough for what they did for us.
It didn't feel like Mandy was working when we were with her, it's like sitting with a friend talking about your wedding, throwing around ideas..... it is not like 'business' in anyway. I believe she loves her work and it shows, she's passionate and understanding. I simply cannot say enough good things.... one last thing, let Mandy plan your wedding!

We don't know where to begin. What an amazing weekend. We are still on a high. We cannot thank you enough.
Your professional approach together with your warmth and friendliness made the whole experience an absolute delight .
The day was one we will always remember thanks to you.
Many thanks to Magdalena at Amida. The food was fantastic and really was as good as the tasting.
Kevin and his band. Words cannot express how amazing they were. They made our evening. Everyone loved them.
Eli and Son Berga for their wonderful venue.
For Tamrah and Tarikh, Spencer, myself, Tarikh's parents and of course David our son, it was the best day EVER!
Many thanks to you and all of your wonderful team from the bottom of our hearts.
Look forward to catching up with you soon.
Love and Best Wishes

Now that we have returned home and come down from our wedding high, we had to write to express our most sincere appreciation for everything you did to make our wedding the best weekend of our lives. Thank you soon much!!!
It was beautiful beyond our wildest dreams and everything was so flawlessly organized and so well executed that we didn't have to worry about a thing. One of the great joys about planning a wedding so far away was that we were just as surprised and enchanted as our guests by all of the little details--from the flowers to the stationary, every single thing that you did and organized for us was stunning. And all of the logistics--the transportation all weekend and the timing and flow of the whole wedding--were amazing. We trusted you and no detail was left unturned--we couldn't be happier.
A special thank you to Lucie and Amanda for being there on the day of and the night before and for guiding everything along spectacularly. We have had nothing but incredible feedback from our family and friends who attended and that really is the most special gift of all. They all fell in love with the island and felt so taken care of during the celebration that I'm sure there will be several return visitors in the years to come.
Thank you again for everything--we couldn't have done it without you and getting to know the three of you through the process, we wouldn't have wanted to do it without you either. 🙂

ALAGO events planned our wedding this spring and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. We met in Mallorca and immediately clicked with Mandy. Her modern approach to wedding style which I must say is hard to find in the island... was so fresh and exciting. ALAGO events manages all aspects of your wedding seamlessly and I can only imagine what they do behind the scenes get every single last detail to absolute perfection for the big day. We have a young toddler so planning a wedding and from abroad was difficult. We then instructed Mandy and we worked together to create our dream! We spent hours on Skype calls and lots of emails outlying the process, suggesting ideas and short visits to Mallorca towards the wedding date was all that was needed. Every single last detail was exactly what we had envisioned and Mandy along with her team are so friendly and fun she made the whole process remarkably stress free and enjoyable -whilst managing our budget really well helping us to spend and save in areas! Not only did we have a fantastic experience planning our wedding and seeing it come to life at the Maricel hotel... we have also made a dear friend in Mandy and will definitely be heading out to meet up and relive our memories of the day over a glass of wine very soon!

The day I met Mandy I took a deep breath of relief. She was exactly as one imagines her ideal wedding planner, friendly, smiling, polite and very professional. From the first moment I felt we connected and from there it was all a bed of roses, pun intended !! I had a whole year to plan my dream wedding and despite having a thousand ideas in mind, some that I thought would be impossible to realize, Mandy made everything possible. The word NO is not in her vocabulary.
My first mission for her was looking for the perfect place for our wedding and I gave her very specific instructions. We needed a very private place for a country-style outdoor wedding, which had capacity for more than 200 guests, overlooking the sea, gardens to celebrate the civil wedding, cocktail by the pool, dinner with views, space for the bridal dance, a more private place to party, etc. Seems impossible right? Well, she got it and exceeded all my expectations.
All my guests still congratulate me for the wonderful place but also for the impeccable organization. Mandy reviews with a pinpoint every wedding detail. One that surprised me the most was, about a month before the wedding and when nerves where skin-deep, she handed me a very complete dossier where every minute of how our wedding was going to happen was explained. There were things I had not even stopped to think and she had it all tied up and locked. You can not imagine how I felt when we were going through each of the steps, it was as if I was already living it !!
From that moment I just had to leave everything in their hands and enjoy it. She took care of everything and did it with so much love and so much dedication it was like she was organizing the wedding of her best friend.
I can say without exaggeration that my wedding day was the happiest day of my life, I would not have changed a single thing. And I assure you that I largely owe it to Mandy, I don't have the words and thanks to better explain what this woman is worth, how well she does her job and how easy she makes it look.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my dreams come true. Even those I did not dare to imagine.
- AMY & SIMONAMY & SIMON
My husband and i were married in september 2007 in a most idyllic setting curtosy of Alago events. Both ourselves and our guests had a wonderful memorable day, without a hitch or hiccup.... Mandy and her team couldn't have done a thing more to make our day any more perfect! We would highly recommend Alago for their professionalism, experience, insipiration and friendliness to anyone wishing to organise a celebration on the beautiful island of Mallorca.... if we were to do it all over again we would not hesitate to contact Alago!
- MAL & LIDIJAMAL & LIDIJA
We have had so many good comments from guest and family, they all enjoyed the wedding and the days after. This could not have happened so well if it was not for the commitment and hard work you put in on our behalf. The wedding day was every thing Lidija and my-self wanted, it was a relaxing feeling knowing we had you to do the worrying and chasing for us, the day went so smoothly and with our entire request met fully. I would like you to once again thank the minister for a very moving service.
It was not just a wedding it was a very enjoyable holiday too, we again would like to thank you for the time and effort you put in on our behalf and would not hesitate to recommend you to future couples.
- CAROLINE & STEVECAROLINE & STEVE
Well done yet again, Mandy! I don’t like to contemplate that day without your hard work and inspired choices. We well remember the first day we met you .....it was unquestionably a blessing as it led to your taking over the management of the whole event. We have not yet got over mentioning some aspect or another of the day and whenever we do so, you are remembered...
- AISHLING & NICKAISHLING & NICK
Our wedding was the most amazing day of our lives.
You planned everything to perfection and took care of all the things we thought of, plus all the ones we didn’t! The food, the decor, the setting, the entertainment, everything was magical.
People are still talking about the wedding now as the best one they have been to. That says it all!
- LORRAINE & PHILLORRAINE & PHIL
For anybody considering a wedding in Mallorca, my husband and I genuinely cannot recommend Mandy and her team highly enough. Mandy understood what we were looking for, came up with lots of great ideas and set about delivering those with lots of enthusiasm and a great eye for detail. The team clearly have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the island to draw from. Their professionalism was never more evident than on the wedding day itself where the whole day was managed like clockwork, without us having to worry about anything. In addition to all that, Mandy was a fantastic friend the entire time and we had a blast on our pre-wedding visits to the island. We both had the best day of our lives so far and are just sad it’s all over!
- LAURA & CHRISLAURA & CHRIS
I hope you are well and that the sun is shining again out there, we have huge Mallorca and wedding blues at the moment as you can imagine! We hope to come out again this summer though to get our little Andratx fix again soon.
Once again thank you so much for all your hard work and massive support in making 5th June undoubtedly the best day of both of our lives, it was incredible and the photos I'm sure you will agree reflect the fantastic mood of the day for all our guests. We have been inundated with messages of thanks and everyone is suffering withdrawal symptoms as much as we are, it really was an amazing day for all of us.
We look forward to staying in touch and bumping into you lots in the future in Cappuccino.
Take care and all our best wishes Xx.

Thank you so much again for helping us to make our wedding weekend in Formentera the most wonderful experience we have ever had!
Having returned from a beautiful honeymoon we are still thinking and speaking of our wedding every day. Everything down to the smallest detail was just perfect. Especially we wanted to thank you for your patience during the planning and for taking care of all the details on the wedding day. Only like this could we enjoy every second of the day.
With your long experience and your warm character you have been a great listener and help, especially when the same questions and topics came up again. You gave us time to make our decisions when it was right for us. With your planning talent and your attention to detail you realised all the decorating and flowers even better than we imagined them. The wedding cake was the most beautiful we have ever seen.
Everybody who plans a wedding in the Balearics should speak to you! Thank you so much!
- ANNABELLE & GILESANNABELLE & GILES
We can not thank you enough for absolutely everything you did for us over the past ten months to make the 17th July the most incredible day of our lives. You are organization personified and were always at the end of the phone, email or there in person to help sort out every minor detail for us and talk us calmly through the myriad of never ending decisions one has to make. It is not a small undertaking to hold a wedding abroad when you are not based in the same country and it would have been impossible without you.
You were able to take the vision we had of our wedding and turn it into reality. Our guests were simply blown away with most saying they felt like they were on a film set for the day. The attention to detail that you brought to the day with the small touches such as the birdcage wishing box and being able to produce some sparklers the day before the event - You were invaluable.
On the actual day you and Bec ensured that Giles and I did not have a care in the world other than enjoying ourselves on the day, knowing that everything was in your capable hands and running like clockwork. The only problem was that time just seemed to go too fast, I wanted to press pause.
Muchas gracias para todo, and we hope to take you for dinner next time we are in Mallorca to say a proper thank you.
- ANN ISABELLE & CHARLESANN ISABELLE & CHARLES
Upon our return to reality, back from our honeymoon, it was essential for us to express our gratitude to you for planning and executing such a wonderful day for us and our guests.
From our first converstations many months ago, you understood exactly what we wanted, what we needed, as well as our style and tastes. And throughout the planning, your advice, ideas and contributions reflected this understanding, always respecting our budget. Who could ask for more?!
Thank-you for your attention to detail and your understanding when faced with our questions and concerns. You created the most magical day for us, despite us living more than 4000km away - no easy feat!
We had heard that one should always expect at least a few small or minor details to go differently than planned on the big day. But our day was flawless - a perfect wedding - and a day we will never forget.
You are open-minded, patient and easy to communicate with, all wonderful qualities for a wedding planner. Thank-you so much for our dream-turned-reality. We could not have done it without you.
- SUZIE & ANDYSUZIE & ANDY
I’m supposed to be good with words and yet as I sit here trying how best to convey how I feel about last weekend being “good” with words is of little or no help. Yet I will try.
All in all, I don’t honestly know how you managed to cope with me and pull off everything that you did. I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I have received and I can’t thank you enough for holding my hand this past year and making what could have been the breaking of me... Really into the making of me!!!
At every stage of the proceedings you dealt with every little detail in a completely non-stressed approach and made the entire experience a relaxed and happy one. The venue was outstanding, the food on the buffet was exceptional and the decorations in the main hall made the whole evening magical. The entertainment was brilliant. The band just exceptional and our virtual synagogue more spiritual than any real synagogue I’ve ever been to.
You and your team worked so hard and we are all so unbelievably appreciative for making it into a weekend to remember forever.
From the bottom of my heart... Thank you both of you for all that you did. Just sensational.
Lots of love

It’s already been two months since our wedding, but we still think about it every day. Our day has just been absolutely perfect, and if I can say one thing I am upset about, it’s the fact that it went by so fast. Because of you, our wedding was everything we ever imagined. Being kind of a control freak (and working in marketing), in the very beginning I was sometimes a little unsure whether everything was on track because we did not speak every day on the phone, only to find out that this was totally unnecessary because you had dealt with the details already on our behalf, without bothering us with the nitty gritty. I was also amazed in which detail everything was thought through and remembered by you, although you were doing so many different weddings at the same time.
You sat with me during hair and make-up trial, meeting with the photographer, the location, you went to the tasting session with us and even to the German priest, which shows how much you care. You really wanted our wedding to be perfect. Even during my little stressful 10 minutes (when it started to rain and everyone went inside, something I had not wanted at all), you managed to re-arrange everything to work inside, only to change it (without anyone noticing!) within another 10 minutes when the rain suddenly stopped.
What can I say? Our guests are still talking about the wedding of the year! It is so funny that everyone felt the urge of talking to you, even though some guests did not realise you did not speak German. 🙂
Our first wedding anniversary in Mallorca is already fixed (suggested by friends who wanted to repeat this wonderful event), so we are coming with 15 friends to Mallorca for another time - although probably this time without the wedding dress.
Mandy, Becky, we cannot thank you enough for your hard work that looked so effortless on the day. Throughout the preparation I was probably the most relaxed bride because I trusted you 100 percent. We can only recommend you highly to anyone who wants a perfect Mallorca wedding.

Nigel and I would like to thank you for making the Spring Party at Ses Dues Finques such a success. We have been basking in the glory of our guests saying it will be known as The House Party of The Year!
I knew at our very first planning meeting that I was dealing with a professional - timely, responsive, enthusiastic, calm and proactive. During the last few months you were available anytime I rang you with an issue and every e-mail was acknowledged immediately. I was aware that you were dealing with many other clients but I always felt I had exclusive access to you. I can't tell you how much this helped to reduce my stress levels!
Your experience in the field of event management was apparent at every stage and you charmingly managed to guide our ideas and the more wild concepts into something practical that would work on the day. The contacts and network of suppliers you have is impressive and they have all reflected your high standards of quality: Amida, the brilliant caterers; the sound and lighting experts; the awnings and marquee companies; the florists as well as the live music acts and DJ. You were sensitive to what was appropriate to a large private house party but I would have no hesitation were I still in American multi-national corporate life in asking you to organize a company event. Maybe Nigel's promotional launch of Lynx and Proteus Sports and Racing Cars next?
Your quiet yet authoritative hand on the day of the party, co-coordinating the many stages of the event and the myriad staff, suppliers and entertainers involved was brilliant. Everything went seamlessly. Most importantly for us, we could actually relax and thoroughly enjoy our own party knowing that every detail was being handled by you. In the aftermath, we now know that, not only were you directing operations, you were also acting as counselor, dog handler and preventing the odd lady guest of uncertain legs falling into the pond!
Thank you so much. We know you are busy with events over the next few months but as soon as you are free, you must come and have a day on the boat with us - and I will organize it!
Best wishes x

I hope you are very well and the wedding season for you is coming to an end and you can go on a nice relaxing holiday soon.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us organise such an amazing wedding weekend. We had the best time of our lives and I cant tell you how many amazing letters we have had from friends and family. I know having the wedding at the villa was always going to be a bit of a challenge but it worked and worked so well. It was the best day/night of our lives. You and your team did such a fantastic job and please pass on our thanks to Becky, all the team at the catering, the amazing marquee guys, the firework man and DJ. They all did such a brilliant job. It was definitely a weekend many will never forget - even the locals of Cala san Vicente who didn't come! Don't think they had ever seen anything quite like it in their lives!!!
Thank you again for all your hard work - trust me I know how much hard work it is! You were a total star and just wish we could get married all over again next yr! I don't think my Dad thinks so!!!!!!!
With love and best wishes
- KSENIA & CHARLESKSENIA & CHARLES
Many thanks to Mandy and the whole team of Alago Events, who organised our tricky Scottish-Russian wedding in April 2011 in such great way that all our guests were commenting that this wedding was one of the best they have ever attended!
Thank you very much for your professionalism, efforts and amazing approach to every single detail no matter how difficult it might be.
You made all our wedding dreams possible! Our Big Day was truly the one to remember for ever thanks to Alago Events!
Wishing you all the best for the future
Love, Ksenia & Charles

There are no words to describe how Incredible you are!!
Ever since I was a little girl i dreamed of my wedding day as being Perfect! You made it more than Perfect!!
Thank you for making my Dream Wedding reality and for making it everything I wished for and more.
You truly are one in a million and I now find myself lost with no wedding to plan!
There was no situation big or small unmanageable by your team.
When I walked down the aisle and saw the beautiful setting I was brought to tears. It truly was the most magical day ever.
The Flowers, Band, Food & Service just to name a few were second to none!
I will always remember the fun we had planning my big day and how you made my dream a reality.
You truly are my Fairy Godmother and I you will forever be in my Head and Heart.
Thank you for everything!!
- JO & DAVEJO & DAVE
Just a note to acknowledge our thanks and gratitude for your contribution in making our wedding day the best day of our lives, and even better than we had dreamt of! Without a doubt the wedding would not have been what it was without you on board and helping from the initial venue search through to you being there til the early hours of the actual day. Your experience was evident from the start, and you brought things to our attention which we might never have considered and it is those details which really helped to bring the whole day together and wowed our guests!
It’s now 3 full weeks since the wedding and we are non-stop talking about how amazing it all was, we wouldn’t change a single thing! The whole day ran so seamlessly and all our guests and family could enjoy it knowing that you were there to deal with any issues, for all we know there was small things throughout the day but from our side of things it all went perfectly and not one of us was stressed thanks to your expertise! So many of our guests commented on what an amazing wedding it was, and how professional our wedding planner was too!
If I ever come across anyone looking to get married abroad I would recommend Mallorca and you 100%
Thank you once again for making our dream wedding come true!!!

We cannot thank you enough for all your relentless hard work and thorough, flawless advice in the planning our wedding. We went from being utterly clueless and short of time to proudly hosting an exquisite three day event, which, months on, we are still being complimented on. We’ve lost count of how many people have told us our wedding was the best they’d ever been to!
From the very beginning, the superior passion and expertise of the Alago team was evident and unwavering and the easiest decision we made in the whole process was to chose to work with you. Most notably, your response time and the precision of your advice blew us away. You took pains to put yourselves in our shoes, those of the anxious, clueless couple, knowing that a speedy, knowledgeable reply to our countless queries, no matter how trivial, would sooth our nerves and help us make steady progress. As a result, we were able to make plans and decisions with the confidence that they would be implemented without fail and in good time, meaning we could relax and enjoy the process more - especially crucial, given we were building a multi-day event for 120 guests from abroad!
What we also loved was how limitless your services were - there was nothing you didn’t have an answer for, right down to helping us set up our own wedding website, uploading maps and travel details when we found ourselves too inundated or technically - challenged to figure it out for ourselves. The fact that you kept us proactively updated on our "to-do list", really helped us manage our priorities and completely avoided any last-minute panics. We can honestly say that, having planned a wedding with you, we cannot understand why people say they are stressful - our advice - book the Alago team!
When it came to the actual wedding week, we loved knowing we had the team around us, making sure it all happened according to plan, leaving us to entertain our guests and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. The execution of each event was immaculate - the food was incredible, the service was golden, the decor was better then we’d imagined it and, most importantly of all, both we and our guests loved every minute.
Thank you again and again for making our special day just so incredibly special indeed!
Love, R&R xx

Hello Pepe and Mandy
We are just surfacing after the last dispatch of relatives and friends this afternoon but just wanted to let you know that we were thrilled with Sarah and James's wedding... they had best the day of their lives!!!
The whole week has been wonderful with Sarah and James being surrounded by all their friends who had come from all over the world and as you can imagine, every evening produced lots of fun, the mornings lots of hangovers...!
Despite a few spots of rain (and the seamless removal of all the tables inside and then outside again an hour later), a rather choppy crossing on the boat (memorable)...without exception everyone had the most amazing time! Dancing til the early hours on the beach was the climax!
The Hotel produced the most fabulous food and we had lots of lovely compliments! The service was superb! All the different venues for the cocktails, dinner and then dancing just blew everyone away!!!
Thank you to you Pepe (you worked so hard - thank goodness you're fit) and to Becky... such a long day for you both!! You were the calming influence which made everything so much more relaxed.
- SARAH & JAMESSARAH & JAMES
Hi Mandy, We are back from Mallorca after a wonderful 3 weeks chilling and enjoying our minimoon!
We, both James and I, wanted to say an enormous Thank you to all of you. You all were fantastic on the day, and worked their socks off, despite the weather, which was the only disappointment of the entire thing, and in hindsight I think it may have been a blessing!!! James was a sweaty mess for the whole service, god knows if it had been hot!! haha!!
I literally do not know where to start in terms of my favourite bits!! The food, the terrace, the band (Who were amazing) the deco, the boat trip (somewhat hair raising!!) the venue...all spectacular, and it is only now I am beginning to come back down to earth!!!
I wanted to thank you especially, even though you were not there on the day, the work and effort you all put in was spectacular, and honestly, from chatting to a few people here in the UK and the guests at the wedding the commitment and effort that you put in has blown them and me away. We were so very lucky to have you all.
The photographs are a lovely memory!! So, where do we go from here!!! Hopefully only upwards! And the same for you guys at Alago as well.
I actually have a little something your team, but mum is going to bring them out at the beginning of September! And use that as an excuse to see the little one!!
In terms of the pictures, they are lovely, I love them all!!
- OLGA & DANIELOLGA & DANIEL
We can not thank Mandy and her team enough for organizing the most amazing wedding day for us. Mandy is incredibly efficient and organized that not one detail was missed! She has such experience with planning events that she had so many fantastic ideas that made the day truly memorable for us and all our guests. As we were planning the wedding from Ireland Mandy made everything so easy and was always there when we needed anything!
Thank you Mandy, Pepe and Becky for everything in the run up to the wedding and for being part of our day.
You are all really an incredible team!
- GEMMA & RICHARDGEMMA & RICHARD
Mandy and her Alago team were incredible from our first meeting over coffee to the final event at our wedding celebrations.
Quite honestly, we were always cynical about the need for a wedding planner and felt confident we were more than capable of planning our own wedding - however, in retrospect we were wrong. Mandy brought something very different to the table - not only did she provide suggestions we would never have thought of, but her constant reassurance that the biggest day of our life was being taken care of was very comforting.
At every point our own views were accounted for but when decisions became too complex we knew Mandy would advise up appropriately. Our guests thought she was a delight to deal with and I have no doubt our wedding would have been far less enjoyable should we have not retained her services.
The actual event couldn't have gone any better - Mandy and her team were professional without being pushy, allowed us both to relax and enjoy the day but always safe in the knowledge everything was in hand.
With everything now done and with us both left with our memories my advice to anyone thinking of using Alago events is - without any hesitation - to use them. People talk about the stress associated with planning a wedding but this simply did not apply to us because Mandy handled everything - when we wanted to be in the driving seat she let us, when we wanted some time out - she made the decisions for us. We actually view Mandy as a good friend and intend to stay in touch with her as over the 12 months planning our wedding we got to really like her, both professionally and as a person. She delivered a wedding we will always remember and for that we will always be extremely grateful. She's a star!
- JULIE & TOMERJULIE & TOMER
Planning a destination wedding is not easy. So a good wedding planner is a MUST! When we picked Mandy and her team, it was like going on a blind date. We did not know anything about her, but for the pictures of her website. It was a little nerve-racking, but from the first meeting Mandy was the ultimate professional and made us feel comfortable and in good hands. With her Mallorcan and English background, Mandy has a very good network on the Island and that makes her one of the best planners on the Island.
Mandy will do her very best to get you whatever you need for your special day. Also, if something unexpected happens - which is almost always the case, such as a bus strike, she handles it very calmly and comes up with a plan B or C, even if that means she has to transport everybody her self 🙂
She and her brother Pepe along with her other assistants are just very devoted to make your day the best day of your life. She is there from the beginning till the end - also after you leave the Island again. We can only say that we had a wedding of a lifetime - it was so romantic and magical.
Thank you Mandy, Pepe and the rest of team for the best "blind date" we ever had.
- KELLY & ALEXKELLY & ALEX
Prior to meeting Mandy, we interviewed another wedding planner, who-like Mandy-was fluent in Spanish and English. Yet, the contrast between the two in terms of professionalism, personality, flexibility, range of ideas etc. was of such magnitude that we hired Mandy during our initial meeting (how could one not!). Mandy’s refreshing approach to wedding planning and modern touch, such as using an iPad to illustrate the possibilities for our wedding, made us feel extremely at ease and excited about the entire process.
Two more specific and interrelated attributes that, in our view, make Mandy and her team unique are (a) the wide range of connections with other professionals across and beyond Mallorca (e.g., photographers, florists, caterers, guitar players, hair stylists), and (b) the outlook that nothing is impossible to arrange for your wedding. If you want to surprise your guests by making your reception-entrance from a helicopter-like we did-Mandy will make it happen. Okay… we didn’t have the budget for the helicopter, but Mandy and co. gave us exactly the reception the bride wanted.
Dear Alago team….. thank you for everything….we are extremely grateful that you arranged such an amazing reception!!

We are sitting at home trying to work out whether or not our wedding day was actually a dream... we can honestly hand on heart say it was truly the best day of our lives!!
From the word go you have been extremely professional and courteous, your recommendations of the venues that would suit our budget and number of guests were spot on and from the reaction of our guests they were truly bowled over by our venue. The service, drinks and food were second to none, absolute perfection. Antonia and her band were amazing, a fantastic way to start the evening and get the party started!! I think the reaction from our guests to the DJ stopping the music at 3pm summed up the evening... ‘one more song, one more song!’.
The day flowed seamlessly with no guests left hungry, thirsty or bored. We have received many comments on how well organized the day was and can’t thank you enough. No job was too big or too small. We couldn’t recommend you highly enough.
We can only wish that in ten years time you are able to organize our tenth wedding anniversary party at our venue!
Lots of love xxx

If I could give one piece of advice to anyone planning a wedding in Mallorca, it would be to contact Mandy at Alago Events. At first, Simon and I thought we could plan everything ourselves, we are both very laid back people and we knew exactly what we wanted and had big ideas for our Wedding weekend!
However, after a few months of scouting the island for everything from wedding cars to fireworks, we struggled to find the specification and quality we envisioned.
From this, we decided to put a few feelers out and look for a wedding planner, which is when we came across Alago Events. It was difficult to sell the idea of a wedding planner to our parents at first, they didn't see the value at all, but as they started joining our meetings with Mandy and saw the amount of work that was going on 'behind the scenes', they were quickly sold!
After our first few meetings with Mandy, we were utterly impressed with her professionalism, knowledge, experience and ideas. Simon and I thought we had everything mapped out; what we needed, what we wanted, timings, costs... Then Mandy gave us a true picture of how the day would be structured and we were astounded at the details that needed to be considered and put into place.
Mandy made the entire planning process and the weeks running up to the Wedding very relaxed, stress-free and enjoyable... exactly how planning a wedding should be! When the weekend arrived, we were so confident everything was ready and knew Mandy had a 'Plan B' for everything too! This allowed us to relax and take in every special moment on the day.
Our Wedding weekend was the most incredible experience of our lives and our guests were blown away by everything! Looking back, there is nothing we would change about our Wedding, everything was perfect and just how we envisioned, which we truly put down to Mandy... She really is the Fairy Godmother of Mallorca Weddings!

Awesome! Unreal! Unbelievable! Fantastic! Professionalism Personified! These are just a few of the words to describe you, and they barely touch the surface.
It is without question that our venue is indeed the most idyllic place to get married, but if truth be told, it was down to your efforts and sheer brilliance in organising our wedding that made it incredibly special, personal and above all a fairy tale. During all the planning, nothing was ever too much of a bother for you. You put us at ease. You never got agitated. Despite the numerous questions at all hours of the day/night and very often about the same topic, you never got frustrated. You were patient. You never rushed us. And above all, you listened to us.
Talk of how brilliant you were just filled the whole weekend. Thousands could learn from your work ethos, not to mention your sheer dedication to making the whole process painless and seamless for the us.
Our gratitude is one that is hard to verbalise as the only true way for anyone to see how amazing you are is simply to witness it and live through it themselves.
The atmosphere over the whole weekend was relaxed, easy, fun not to mention exciting. But above all, there was no panic, no stress nor any anxiety. Everything ran so smoothly. Mandy, Becky, take a bow, you made that happen.
It may well be easy for us to say how amazing you guys were, but here are a few comments from our friends;
“...they are unbelievable, where did you find them”
“...I wish I had them for my wedding”
“...do they sleep?”
“...always on hand when needed”
No testimonial could ever do you true justice, but to anyone else who is thinking of using your services, I say this. "Don’t think just entrust it all to the dynamic duo. It’ll be a decision you’ll smile about for the rest of your days”
From the bottom of our hearts, Muchisimas Gracias.

If only I knew how to say what I really want to say to you! My dearest Mandy, when I first met you and described to you my dream wedding, you understood my vision completely. Not only did you understand, but over the coming 10 months, you managed to create the most visually stunning and seamlessly perfect event without even your forehead breaking one bead of sweat (well not noticeably anyway!). Herein lies the sheer brilliance of what you do: you really did completely remove any stress or tension from me, and carried all major and minor mishaps/disasters/wrong deliveries/culinary mix-ups, etc.. entirely on your own back. I was never bothered with the trivial demands, you simply took exceptional care and consideration when assuming control over all matters, knowing exactly what my decisions would be and therefore acting on my behalf. You managed the transportation and settling of my guests, my band, my rabbi and even the henna artist (!) with absolute certainty and seamless perfection. You allowed me to relax and enjoy what everyone affectionately refers to as the wonderful wedding build-up. I can’t thank you enough for that.
Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, and during the wedding week, you always sounded genuinely pleased and excited to speak to me and ready to alleviate any of my concerns that may be troubling me on that day (and there was always something!). No request was ever too small or too difficult, and you were always there when I needed to speak. When it came to choosing flowers, tablecloths, food, cutlery, ribbons, chair covers and decorations, your knowledge is absolutely unrivalled! You never seemed tired or bored of the minute details, but rather uniquely excited to be sharing the decisions of this special event with me, no matter how many times you’d probably been through these things with other couples. You sat with me during make-up trials, hairdressing trials, photography and videography meetings, florist decisions and food trials and never once did you seem disinterested. You really do care with all your heart about every event you do, it honestly shows. You are undoubtedly the most precious asset to a wedding I could ever recommend.
Mandy, you are quite simply worth your weight in gold. Not only did you exceed every expectation I had of my wedding by far, you also became my friend. You truly walked every step of this wedding with me, and my experience was pure magic because of you. If I could do it all again I would. I do not have enough words in my vocabulary to thank you.

My advice to anybody considering tying the knot in Mallorca would be to DO IT!! However, do not even consider attempting it without Mandy Lago.
Our wedding day was by far the best and most perfect day of our lives. We cannot possible imagine how it could have been improved. This dream was made reality by the infinite skill, dedication and exactitude of Mandy. We will cherish the memories forever and will always be in her debt.
Mandy’s extensive network of contacts fore filled our every wish for our wedding day. Everybody we interacted with was a delight.
Mandy simply “gets it” and executes on your behalf so that you can just chill. What’s more, not only is she a lady of ultimate professionalism, impeccable taste and infinite skill, she is also really cool. I feel we became friends during our nuptials and look forward to sharing a bottle rose with Mandy the next time we are in Mallorca.
A thousand thank - yous from us, is never too much!
- SALLY & DAVIDSALLY & DAVID
Magnificent! Awesome! Negotiable! Darling! Yourself!
I almost wish that the Wedding/Blessing you arranged for Sally and I was your first event, as we have nothing new to say, it has all been said before.
You and your company are magnificent at what you do. Even my friend Bill who never has a good word to say about anybody thought the day was fantastic, and now It's all over, we miss you! You were (are) a friend, someone I could talk to get rid of my stress, calm me down, a real diamond.
If anybody reads this and wants to get married in Majorca or have a blessing they would be mad not to consider Mandy and her company (Alago Events) to organise it.
Thank you Mandy and your team for the happiest day of our lives
Do you know I wouldn't mind doing it all over again...in fact I might!
Love and best wishes, David & Sally

A little over a week has past since the wedding you brilliantly managed for Victoria and Matthew.
We are still receiving rave reviews from all around the world. We cannot thank you enough.
The hardest thing in the world is to make it look easy, and you made it look very easy…
With the bride and groom on Cambodia, the parents of the bride in Paris, and the wedding taking place in the heart of the Mallorcan countryside, with virtually no infrastructure to rely on, making it look easy was a very tall order, which you managed beautifully, literally.
You transformed a country-side prairie into a place of beauty.
When our caterers let us down at the last minute, your “rescue” solution was better than we could possibly have dreamed of from the original team.
Throughout the whole process you demonstrated total professionalism, with firmness when required, and flexibility always.
If anyone is planning an event that requires professionalism, creativity and a “can do” attitude, I would be more than delighted to recommend them to you and your team.
So thank you again. Your contribution to making this such a happy event was invaluable!

Neil and I got married in Mallorca in September 2014. If you are reading this you are probably at the beginning of your wedding journey. If I could give you only one piece of advice it would be to have Mandy as your wedding planner.
Many of my friends have got married recently, some in the UK and some abroad, and our experience with Mandy was leagues ahead of the service they received from their wedding planners. From day 1 until beyond the wedding nothing was too much trouble for Mandy. I am a self-confessed perfectionist and pretty anal to boot if I am being honest! The little details were important to me as well as the obvious key parts of a wedding. Mandy helped to bring all my ideas and inspiration to life whether it be from Pinterest images or just some random concoction that I had dreamt up and just 'had to have' for my wedding! That included her and her team spending what must have been hours on laborious and time-consuming details like replacing 80 cava bottle labels with personalised ones we had brought, creating personalised parcels for 80 table settings, creating a table plan suspended from the ceiling - the list is endless.
Mandy will know the sorts of things you want for your day before you even know it yourself and very quickly 'gets' exactly what you are after. She always responds to emails/texts incredibly promptly (usually on the same day if not within minutes!) Don't take that for granted - not every wedding planner does that, especially not when they are busy as Mandy.
There will always be hitches in the run-up to a wedding and ours was no different - our place settings didn't arrive from America in time. Mandy sorted a replacement for us just days before the wedding without batting an eye lid. She will keep you calm and give you the best advice you could ask for based on a calibre of experience you would be hard-pushed to find elsewhere.
In addition to all of that, there will be things Mandy and her team will arrange behind the scenes without you even knowing it to make sure everything goes smoothly, for example, on our day she arranged with the local council for there to be no cars parked outside the church. We hadn't asked her to do that - hadn't even thought of it to be honest - but it was done anyway.
Mandy is unflappable and the day itself was flawless (although of course I am biased!) and that is down to Mandy and her team who were as precise and efficient as a military operation.
You will sit back after the wedding and wonder what on earth you would have done without her - we certainly did. I cannot recommend Mandy and her team highly enough.

There are literally no words that could ever describe how amazing and integral Mandy was to making our Wedding the most special day ever..
But I'll give it a go...
As a person who has run huge events for years, my now husband, then fiancee was very nervous about our first meeting with Mandy. I am a control freak and think I know most things, (I don't) but I'm just trying to give you an idea of what I'm like and how incredibly hard I am to manage. However... On our first meeting, it was literally love at first sight. A woman who thought like me, but was nowhere near as mental, and paid real attention to the details, not only the colour scheme and the timings, but more importantly, to Tom and Me. Mandy just got us and that prevailed throughout the whole beautiful planning process where a friendship ensued.
Mandy was my rock, my sounding board, my creative compass, my Finance Director, my PA, my Event Director but more than anything she was a great friend to me in what was truly a crazy time.
I look back on the last year and although I wouldn't want to do the wedding again as it was beyond our wildest dreams, and nothing could ever compare to it, I do wish I could go through the excitement and discovery of planning our day and there is absolutely no part that wouldn't include Mandy.
Mandy is truly the best and if you don't hire her, someone else will and their wedding will be much better than yours... 😉

Myself & Kieran can't thank you enough for making sure we had the most magical day of our lives when we got married in the gem that is Deia. It was beyond what we ever imagined it to be & no question about it, it wouldn't have been the day without Alago.
You and Lucie & all your team made sure we had the most amazing day of our lives. I had at one point thought about not getting a planner but having read about Alago I knew I had to get in touch with you & see what you could do as a planner for us in planning our perfect day. Within 5 minutes I remember I was sold, I knew that morning coming off the phone from our first chat that I had made the best decision in taking you on board. I had researched who was the best planner in Mallorca & your name kept popping up as the best. I can whole heartly say I now know why.
You simply are the best there is, so professional & the weddings you produce are of a high class. Nothing was ever a problem & you and Lucie, having met you both in June in Mallorca, were just such lovely people. I was able to relax in the weeks leading up till the wedding as I knew between Alago & La Residencia working as a team it would be the dream team & beyond magical & that is was.
The day itself went so smoothly & I never once had to worry about anything, the small little details were always very evident. We were able to enjoy the day ourselves and with our children, family & friends.
The ideas you had were just brillant & our family & friends are still talking about it. It was the most magical day of our lives & we can't thank you enough. I still miss seeing your name popping up on my email.
You & Lucie will remain in our hearts forever & will always be so grateful to you for making our dreams come true. We hope to see you again next year when we hope to re visit.
Lota of love, Vicky & Kieran xxx
