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!Sent on 05/17/2019

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!Sent on 04/21/2019
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.

Amanda provided month-of coordination services for my wedding, and working with her was one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding. I had hired most of my other vendors, but didn't know how everything was going to come together and I didn't want all of the details to fall on me and my family on my wedding day. At first, I was worried that hiring a coordinator was an extra expense and wasn't sure that I really needed one, but after meeting with Amanda, I knew I needed her help! She knows her stuff, and I could tell that she knew exactly what I needed, and that everything would go smoothly under her direction.Sent on 10/01/2018
When I sent all of my other vendor contracts to Amanda for review, she thought of things that never would have crossed my mind. She provided great feedback and helped me with key decisions related to the wedding day. She was super responsive to every question/email/text I had. Our rehearsal was quick and easy, and everything on the wedding day was flawless (if there were any issues, I still don't know about them to this day because she just handled things!). She was there super early helping other vendors get everything delivered and set up and was around every time I needed something or had a question.
In the end, our wedding was everything that we wanted, and I don't know how I could have done it without Amanda. She had worked with most of my other vendors before, and having a vendor team that knew each other and worked well together made things even better. If you want to fully enjoy your wedding day with no stress, you need Amanda!
Great Event Planner, always very organized.
Amanda is so delightful to work with! We have now done several weddings together and they have been beautiful and flowed smoothly along because of her careful planning and foresight so nothing slips by her and gets forgotten. I can highly recommend A Swanky Affair!
I would highly recommend Amanda from A Swanky Affair. Her designs are gorgeous and she is professional and organized, making the day run smoothly from beginning to end. I'm always excited to hear I am working with her on a wedding because I know it's going to be a gorgeous day. You will definitely be in good hands.
