Amanda is fabulous! Our vision for my daughter's wedding day was completely fulfilled and Amanda was key in making that happen. I could not recommend her higher. Having her with us with so reasuring and resulted in a beautiful and personal wedding for a wonderful couple.
Amanda's help with my daughter's wedding proved invaluable as we were planning from quite a distance, were having the ceremony and reception at different locations, and had the potential for weather to disturb the outdoor ceremony. She was warm and friendly and had ideas and answers for every question that arose. Even more importantly, the entire weekend was executed with myself being able to rest and enjoy...knowing that she knew the schedule and details inside/out and would gently but firmly keep everyone on track and calm!
We would highly recommend her without hesitation!! Joy
I used Amanda throughout our year-long planning process, and it was the best wedding decision I made! We were planning from out of town and with just a few visits to Durham she made us a beautiful wedding. All of the vendors that Amanda recommended were fantastic as well. Our wedding was so wonderful and everything ran so smoothly. I was actually able to enjoy my day to the fullest thanks to her! I would recommend her a thousand times over!
We're so glad we decided to work with Amanda for the wedding! We used her mainly for the last month of organizing vendors and the detailed timeline for the day and then for sure the week and especially the day of to make the wedding come together. I know I would not have enjoyed my day nearly as much as I did if I did not have Amanda there to manage all of the details that would have derailed me - it made all the difference to me. Amanda was a real reassuring and fun addition to our wedding planning experience and as I said, it made all the difference in how things went.
We were especially glad that we hired an event coordinator to handle month-of to day-of final details for our wedding. Amanda Scott of A Swanky Affair was invaluable in the assistance she provided -- confirming and finalizing the details that we set in place. She was super organized, responsive, and had great vendor recommendations.
Amanda was the best, most awesome day-of planner we could ever have hoped for. She kept every detail of our 12-hour wedding perfectly in place. We could not have asked for a better coordinator, and she was AMAZING!!
Amanda is great. She stayed very calm throughout the whole process and kept us on schedule on the wedding day. She had great ideas about how to make the wedding creative and memorable, and her experience in catering was very helpful!
Amanda was soooo easy to work with and really wonderful at helping us get all the details just right! Her attitude was great and helped me relax and trust that she would get everything done. The wedding came together exactly as we planned thanks to her hard work.
Amanda was amazing! She was so helpful, enthusiastic, and organized. It was a real pleasure to work with her!
Amanda of A Swanky Affair was a delight to work with. We had her as our day-of coordinator, and she saved us so many hassles and logistical nightmares since she took care of so much for our relatively simple event. She kept us on time for photos and our other few specific events, which was great -- left to our own devices, we would have just mingled with our guests and never gotten around to anything else!
While we had most of the sites and vendors already selected when we engaged Amanda, she was able to provide us with lists of other potential vendors as we identified a few additional needs. These included people that she'd worked with before and others, so that we could pick the best fit for our event. We really appreciated her objectivity and her experience.
Planning a wedding is stressful. Amanda makes it less so, since you know the day itself will be in great hands.
Amanda is the absolute best wedding planner! I couldn't have done it without her! Such a blessing to have and she's affordable.
Amanda helped turn our wedding dream into a reality. She was professional, easy to work with, and easily accessible. Her service was a true value, that allowed both families involved to have a relaxing, joyful wedding day, with absolutely no worry about coordination of the vendors or the timing of the wedding. Amanda made it possible for all of us to enjoy ourselves, while the wedding and reception went off smoothly!
Amanda is great! She is really the best at 'herding cats' and keeping everyone on schedule with their responsibilities and inputs. Her goal is results and that certainly shows in the final product !
We loved working with Amanda. Our wedding was perfect! There is nothing we would have changed.
Amanda / A Swanky Affair was absolutely amazing. She made it possible to plan a wedding in a mere 4 months, and it turned out exactly as I wanted. She is extremly professional and organized. If only I could hire her as my personal assistant...
Amanda was the best money we spent for our wedding!!!! My husband and I were able to completely and utterly enjoy our special day without any worry about everything being done right! From the beginning Amanda listened to what we wanted and how the wanted our wedding to go. She was great with suggestions on things we hadn't thought of (i.e. ordering floor length linens). She was extremely organized and I got constant emails updating me on what she was doing so I never worried whether things were getting done or not. We chose to have her for day of services--- but it really is like the month before services with all the time she put in! The last 2 weeks before my wedding were actually stress free!!! I kid you not! I could not have asked for a more wonderful planner!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about A Swanky Affair. Amanda worked with me on every detail of my wedding and turned my ideas into the most amazing wedding weekend imaginable. She was incredibly well organized, easy to work with, and offered plenty of suggestions to help me stay on budget. She did not overlook any details, which was made perfectly clear on our wedding day when everything was even better than I had imagined. I highly recommend Amanda and A Swanky Affair; it will be the best decision you make in your wedding planning process!
We used Amanda as a day-of coordinator but she provided services well beyond that. She has a great gift for organizing and attends to every detail, however small. She's respectful and professional, but beware -- if you try to put off making necessary decisions and getting things done, she'll be regularly reminding you. That is her job, and she does it well.
