We hired Amanda for our wedding day coordination & couldn't have been happier. I am a planner, but wanted to not think about or worry about anything on my wedding day and I didn't. Amanda was great even before the wedding, I was able to communicate with her via email and ask her questions about the wedding, venue, recommendations in the area , about 5 months out from the wedding date. When it came down to crunch time , she was on top of everything, she checked over every contract, caught things I would never have noticed (minor misses- nothing major). The wedding day came and she was there and put me and the rest of the bridal party as ease. Amanda had everyone organized, the timeline was executed perfectly! If anything went wrong at the wedding, I didn't know about it because it was taken care of before I could know! It was great having her knowledge and expertise along with her great personality. Amanda felt like an old friend who was at my wedding to get things done, how I wanted without asking! I am so thankful we picked her and I would use her again and highly recommend her! You can't go wrong!
Planning a wedding in NC from GA was suppose to be hard. Well, not w/ Amanda! From the moment we started talking on the phone I knew I was in great hands. My ENTIRE planning experience was fun and stress free.. She knows all the right people, knew where to save me money and kept me on track every month on where I needed to spend my time. I want to get married all over again just so I can keep talking on the phone and planning trips to NC to see her. I can not recommend A Swanky Affair enough... my dream wedding became so much more than I ever could have imagines because of Amanda. I can't thank her enough.
We hired A Swanky Affair for our day of coordination. Amanda Scott is fantastic! She is incredibly, responsive, professional, and beyond helpful. She thought of everything that I had never even considered. She made our wedding day so seamless and easy for us. All we had to do was have fun and enjoy the best day of our lives and A Swanky Affair took care of all the rest!
Amanda of A Swanky Affair was the Day of Wedding Coordinator for my daughter's wedding on August 10, 2013. I cannot express enough how valuable her service was! Amanda started her "day-of" service weeks before the wedding, and because of that she was able to find out the limo service we had hired was nowhere to be found. Amanda took care of it immediately by providing us with a reliable, less expensive limo company who we were extremely pleased with. A Swanky Affair was on top of every detail before, during and after the wedding & reception. They were efficient, courteous and well-organized. Their professionalism and reliable service allowed us to enjoy our day and be free of worries. All gifts and items were packed safely into our vehicles, and not one thing was missing. Hiring A Swanky Affair was the smartest thing we could have done. I will use A Swanky Affair for any event I have in the future! Truly a Five-Star Business!
When we got engaged in November 2012, we knew 2 things: we wanted to get married soon, and we didn't want to get married in our hometown of Philadelphia. It didn't take us long to settle on a destination - Duke Gardens, on the campus of my alma mater, and a date - July 20. So....how does a couple plan a wedding in Durham from Philadelphia in 9 months time, especially when the bride is a Type-A, control freak? Easy - call Amanda at A Swanky Affair.
I knew that I had a lot of moving parts with this wedding (caterer, rentals, florist, cake, photographer, out of town guests, DJ, etc.) and I also knew that I wanted to enjoy the party with my new husband, so a wedding coordinator was essential. When I met Amanda in January, she instantly struck me as professional, organized, and detail oriented. Just the kind of person that I could trust to be on top of things. We hired Amanda to provide day-of coordination services. She took over about a month before the wedding and was a true God-send. She organized all of our vendors, established the timeline for the day, worked with our photographer on the photo schedule and shot list, and basically just ran the show the last few weeks, which kept me from stressing out and driving my fiancĂ© crazy leading up to the wedding!
When the big day arrived, many people commented on how calm I seemed. Of course I was calm - I had Amanda! Our wedding was executed flawlessly. Everyone knew where they needed to be and what they needed to do. The day ran exactly according to plan and was absolutely perfect, and I got to act like a guest at my own wedding and truly enjoy the happiest day of my life. For that, I am forever grateful to Amanda.
Amanda is so amazing, she made our wedding look so beautiful. She took care of every single detail & eased so much stress for me. I couldn't have done it without her. I am so happy that I found her. Our wedding guests were so happy with her & kept complimenting her work.
I love her personality & amazing ideas. I would recommend her to any Bride looking for a wedding...
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 was an invaluable addition to my Daughter's wedding ! Her professionalism and expertise were priceless . It was so nice to be able to relax and enjoy the week before the wedding .
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 !
