Happy 2024 and Welcome to G. Simpson and Associates, LLC!

 Unfortunately effective immediately, we will no longer be conducting weddings and events outside of the immediate Opelousas, LA area.

We regret having to make that decision, but because of many reasons we have decided it is best.

We can still assist with any plans for destination weddings through our travel agency, The NolaCaribe Connection, LLC.

We will still be doing favors and engaging in the other services of G. Simpson and Associates, such as invitations.

 For planning in the Opelousas area do not hesitate to contact us either via our contact form on the Service page, via email or via phone (504)909-1318.

We are your one stop shop for all of your wedding and event needs including:

  • Consultations
  • Full Planning
  • Day of Planning
  • Follow-up
  • Accessories
  • Advertising Specialties
  • Invitations
  • Favors
  • Travel ( we are Caribbean Specialists, but can send you anyplace you'd like to go), whether you want to cruise, fly or drive, we can help.
  • Gifts
  • Gift Baskets
  • African Clothing, Jewelry
  • African American Greetings, Journals, Calendars, Bible Covers, Magnets & more....

We do not list prices for weddings on our site because we treat them as individual as you are. It cost you nothing for an initial consultation. If it's a destination wedding you're looking for, we can assist with that also because we are also a full service travel agency.

 We also feature invitations and accessories from Hortense B. Hewitt Co.

A Few Travel Suggestions

Just a reminder to all of our traveling friends. Get your passports! Even though the requirements have been extended for some travelers and it is not needed for travel to and from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, it is a good means of ID for you and your family.  Remember babies are included in this, so you must have one for the little one traveling also.  It is better to be safe than sorry. There are some islands that require it for entry regardless and you must have at least 6 months left on it before it expires beyond your return date.  Just as the requirement has changed to include air travelers at this time, it could change back to the original at anytime.

As of January 2017 there are 9 additional states whose drivers license will no longer be accepted as ID for even local air travel, so getting a valid passport is the next best thing.

As of July 13, 2010, the cost of new passports go up from $100.00 to $110.00 and a $25.00 execution fee.  The change applies to renewal fees as well.

If you don't know where to get the applications, check your post office, court house, contact me or click here or click in the logo in the right margin if you are in need of expedited services.  Be sure to use the coupon code OP1 for your 10% discount with the latter.

Remember to avoid delays at customs: do not pack sharp items, gels, sprays, liquids (not even bottled water) in your carry-ons. They will be confiscated.  Shoes must be removed. For faster check in.  Check  your luggage in at curbside.  They will give you your boarding pass and you can go avoid the long lines.

Speaking of luggage.  You may want to rethink your packing, as some airlines have begun to charge extra for checking in even 1 bag. American will be charging $15.00 for the 1st bag and $25.00 for the 2nd bag on all local flights, so if you plan to go shopping on your vacation, you may want to consider having it shipped back home.  Either way you will pay for it.

Happy and safe traveling to you!
