You need a swanky affair

You always hear the wedding horror stories, of something being forgotten or missing. Want to avoid this? Then you need to hire A Swanky Affair and all your worries will be gone! I highly recommend Amanda and her team! My husband and I were looking to have the wedding of our dreams within our budget. Wedding planning and the wedding itself has a lot of details and you just can not be in control of them all. Having Amanda as our wedding coordinator was essential to us having a great wedding! Amanda was wonderful about answering my many questions and providing tips and options. Leading up to the wedding Amanda covers all details and final contact with your vendors! A HUGE HELP AND ESSENTIAL TO A SMOOTH WEDDING DAY! She knew exactly what our vendors needed and got all the final details and logistics into place. The wedding ceremony and reception layout that Amanda helps you with and lays out was a huge help and a big part of everything starting to come together in our planning. The day of the wedding she and her team were early and a calming presence to us all. They kept things moving and ensured everything was running smoothly and that we were having the best day! I never had to wonder if we were on time or worry about what was next. Amanda was always there gently guiding us through the day. I am so thankful for her help!

Day of Coordinator- SHES AMAZING!

I was a “covid bride” so I had a long journey with Amanda in 2020 and into 2021 where the big day finally happened! Amanda was AMAZING throughout it all! She is extremely professional, talented, and very knowledgeable of wedding planning and making sure things go smooth and perfect for your big day! If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, seriously look no further, A Swanky Affair is THE ONE! You won’t regret it!

She’s the Best!!!

Amanda Scott, owner of A Swanky Affair, was a huge help as we navigated the challenges of hosting our daughter’s wedding at a very large and very busy venue. We especially appreciated her timely and efficient communication skills. While dealing with some other vendors who did not respond at all (or took days/weeks to respond) to our questions and concerns during the planning process, it was a pleasure to always receive her responses either immediately, or within 24 hours. This was very, very important to us. Amanda was efficient, knowledgeable, and extremely organized, with a focus on detail. And very important: she was calming and reassuring during those moments when panic would arise, which inevitably occur during the planning of a wedding. Amanda was on point thru all the Zoom calls, phone calls, text messages, emails and venue planning sessions we scheduled throughout our year of planning. We were blessed to have her as our wedding coordinator and appreciate all she did to help our daughter realize the wedding of her dreams. Thank you, thank you, Amanda!!!

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!
