Amanda was awesome! She basically saved our wedding day. She went way above and beyond the scope of a traditional wedding coordinator. We had an after party at a bar immediately following the reception. I ended up leaving behind a ton of stuff such as my veil (which was borrowed from a friend), my shoes, my detachable train, and our wedding cake topper. She packed up those items, along with desserts from the wedding that we never got to eat, and delivered them to our hotel! She also came to the venue the next day and helped us load up items in our car and took our flowers for us! She was the best at making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and allowing the wedding to flow well.

We absolutely love Amanda!!!! Leading up to and on our wedding day, I had no worries. She helped us stay on track with our timeline as well as contacting our vendors as the day approached. On our wedding day, I had not one thing to worry about!!! Since our wedding was at our home, she arrived with her team ahead of time and got everything set up and worked with the vendors as they arrived. My wish of having nothing to worry about on that day was more than filled!!! We were not rushed to move from one thing to another, but instead were able to simply wait a few minutes if that's what we wanted. The decorations that she provided fit perfectly into my vision!!! She was an invaluable part of our day!!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a wedding planner/coordinator!!! Thank you for everything that you did for us Amanda!!!

Simply can't say enough good things about Amanda and her team! Amanda helped us plan our wedding from the very beginning and we couldn't have done it without her. We were worried that our dream venues were out of our budget, but she got us great vendor quotes, crunched the numbers and showed us it was within our reach. Without her we wouldn't have had our dream wedding at the Lightner Muesem courtyard and White Room reception. Almost every vendor Amanda recommended did an amazing job! We especially loved the dessert bar from Alley Cakes Bakery. We were able to offer a wide array of delicious desserts that doubled as decor. The only vendor I was disappointed with was the travel agent. She would go weeks without responding to emails and didn't get us a very good discount on our hotel block. In addition to making sure we stayed on track with our timeline and budget, Simply Weddings also took on the large task of our flowers and decor. Amanda made gorgeous table runners to complement our centerpieces and tie in our watercolor theme. On the wedding day, Amanda and Karla handled everything from set up to break down and any last-minute problems in between. For example, due to bad traffic on the interstate our ceremony chairs didn't make it in time. Amanda made sure our guests were happy standing during our short ceremony and got us a full refund. It was important to me that we weren't stressed out on the wedding day. Amanda took care of everything so we were able to enjoy the beautiful day with our family and friends. After the wedding, Simply Weddings arranged for our leftover flowers to be donated to a local retirement community. We loved that our flowers didn't go to waste while we were on our honeymoon. Would highly recommend Simply Weddings by Amanda to anyone who is planning a large event!

I gladly write this review on Amanda for her accomplishments as a Wedding planner. We worked together to put a plan in place covering topics like venue options, number of guests, officient, menues, musican choices, floor layouts, flowers, favors, rehersal, and coordinated with the venue personnel in all aspects including setup before and after the wedding. The duration was four months. She was always available to contact. She handled everything quickly and courteous. She did a great job.

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I was working for a catering company and happened to come across a bride who had no idea what was going on and she was being taken advantage of on a couple things and that's when I decided to help her out with getting in touch with a few people I knew and all while I was helping her I was having a blast planning the whole thing for her! Now its what I love to do!
