    Excellent wedding planner!

    I did quite a bit of research finding a wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding in Chapel Hill and I can say unequivocally that Amanda was the right choice! With my daughter busy in Pharmacy School and me living in Florida I knew I needed someone who we could both count on to get things done, but without either of us giving up complete control. Amanda’s a la carte services style is brilliant. It allowed us to pick and choose specific things we needed her for while allowing us to take care of the planning we felt comfortable doing ourselves. Amanda asked all the right questions, made all the right suggestions and was instrumental in helping my daughter’s vision become a reality. Even though we handled a few of the details on our own, Amanda was able to effortlessly dovetail our efforts with hers.

    Amanda provided us with a very specific budget and timeline which proved to be invaluable throughout the planning process. We knew exactly when decisions needed to be made and we even managed to stay under budget. Amanda set up meetings with vendors, helped with contracts, coordinated with the venue and kept us calm and on track. Her attention to detail is remarkable. Knowing that she had things under control at all times allowed us to enjoy the wedding planning process with very little stress. Amanda is calm and reassuring and there seems to be no problem to which she cannot find the answer.

    By the day of the wedding, everything had been so perfectly planned and we felt so confident in Amanda’s handling of everything that we were able to relax and enjoy the entire wedding weekend. On the wedding day Amanda struck the perfect balance of being right there when we needed her but was not in any way overbearing. The wedding was beautiful and so much fun. We didn’t have to worry about a single thing, because we knew it was being taken care of by our fabulous wedding planner!

    You might think that once the wedding is over, Amanda is done. In our case she was not. There was some sort of miscommunication among the staff at our venue and they threw out all of our flowers at the end of the reception. We had intended to use them the next day at a brunch. Although the flowers could not be recovered, Amanda stepped in on our behalf and in the end the venue gave us a significant compensation for the error.

    Amanda is easy going and a joy to work with but she is also confident and competent. If you’re looking for someone who can help to make your wedding both beautiful and stress free, you can’t go wrong with Amanda.

    Absolute BEST decision I made. She is truly AMAZING! HIRE HER.

    I don't know where to begin- I felt a little crazy wanting to hire a planner/coordinator since I wanted a more laid back casual thing and on the less expensive side and thought I would save money doing it all myself...but as soon as I started emailing vendors- I knew I had no idea what I was doing and I needed HELP! She really put everything in perspective for me- managed my expectations and helped me with a budget so we quickly were able to eliminate some things once she was able to give us a general idea of cost since we really had no idea. She helped with the Venue selection which she knocked OUT OF THE PARK and I never would have found if not for her. Same with the flowers, catering and so much else- She knew EXACTLY which vendors to recommend who fit my style perfectly. Nailed it. There is just so much to look through it's overwhelming and hard to know- so to know she trusts them was SO helpful. She was so organized, helped think of everything and really made the planning process fun and easy. And OMG my wedding reception. It was full of so much joy because I did not have to worry about all those little details. I had the best time with my family and friends. ZERO STRESS- pure excitement! So much funnnnnn. And that is totally priceless. It truly was the best day- never thought I would say something so cheesy! When I filled out her questionnaire, one thing I put was I did not want was "perfection" (like not overly polished or too formal/stuffy) but it was totally my kind of perfect totally thanks to her. I can't thank her enough. :) She is a wonderful planner and person!

    Couldn't have done it without her!

    STOP! Seriously, you don't need to look any further than Amanda Scott. If you're looking for someone who is organized, has an eye for small details without losing sight of the big picture, and will make your wedding party/family feel prepared and excited (I had a very nervous Dad over here!) but keeping everyone on schedule...this is your wake up call!
    I chose to work with Amanda as my day of coordinator (which, you're in luck because this really means month of coordinator) because I was really enjoying the planning process but knew day-of, I wouldn't want to be telling vendors where to set up and getting frantic phone calls because one of the groomsmen forgot his coat. Starting 5 weeks out from our wedding, Amanda began integrating into the process. I sent her all of my vendor contracts and other important documents, which she was able to review and contact all vendors to get the ball rolling. Her response time is insane...not once did it take her more than a day to respond to me...many times within a couple hours or even minutes. Talk about putting my mind at ease. Instead of fielding questions about linens and guest count from 10+ vendors, everyone went through her and that streamlined everything so well and really eliminated any stress I was told by countless people to be prepared for. We created a detailed timeline for the day, which she swiftly shared with vendors and the wedding party/immediate family (during the rehearsal she ran...again To. A. Tee.) The day of couldn't have been smoother and all I had to focus on was getting ready with my girlfriends, getting MARRIED to my husband, and dancing the night away.
    So not only is she good at her job logistically, but she has the perfect personality for the job. She is so kind and warm, putting everyone at ease, but also had something about her where you could tell she means business! The perfect combination to keep everything on track but still so enjoyable from start to finish. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
