The best in the business
There is no one better in the wedding planning business than Amanda-Lynn at Dovetail. Not only did she navigate my fiancé and I gracefully through planning a destination wedding during a pandemic she executed an incredible wedding during unbelievable conditions. My husband and I got married on a day that posed the biggest ice storm Texas has ever seen. On the morning of my wedding, almost every original vendor we hired had to cancel but Amanda Lynn was with us through every hurdle, and not only that, almost every guest has mentioned it being not only the most beautiful, but the most organized and fun event. I can’t express enough gratitude for DoveTail and Amanda-Lynn. The biggest mistake you could make would be not hiring this business to help with any unknown that could happen during the process and especially the day of!Sent on 02/24/2021

I can not recommend Amanda-Lynn more! We planned our wedding from out of state and Amanda-Lynn made the days leading up to our wedding a breeze. She took care of coordinating with vendors, set up, and take down. She even made sure we had food at the reception. We were able to just enjoy the day and celebrate with family and I can’t thank her enough.Sent on 05/29/2018

A very “hands-on” bride on a budget, I was reluctant to hire a Day of Coordinator as I didn’t want to feel pressured into more “services” than I bargained for. I was so relieved when I found Dovetail Wedding Coordination and read about Amanda’s vision for her company. Her Day of Coordination Service was exactly what I needed and was comfortable signing up for.Sent on 10/24/2017
Amanda was personable and easy to work with, very kind and supportive, and extremely helpful throughout the weeks before the wedding. I can’t emphasize just how invaluable it is just to have someone else by your side absorbing all the logistical information and just “taking care” of things. And that is exactly what Amanda and her team did for us - finalizing details with the vendors, creating the timelines, making sure the decor and details were just how I visioned, and touching base with me every step of the way. I also hired her to run the rehearsal to make sure everything was perfect and it was.
During the wedding, I didn’t have to worry about a thing and the Dovetail team kept us informed and on task throughout the evening. Everything went very smoothly and I was very thankful to have them on board overseeing it all. I highly recommend this trustworthy, sweet, and very talented coordinator!!!
