About Simple Day

Wedding planner & coordinator for couples who value quality over quantity.

What is a Simple Day?

It's your wedding day, simplified. It's what you get when you make wedding planning an intentional process and experience, rather than an obsessive whirlwind of minor details. On the day of your wedding, you have one simple task: Marry the love of your life. It's simple, it's pure, and it's the only thing you should be thinking about on that day.


How can Simple Day help?

We want to help you get to that place! We want to help you turn stressful wedding planning decisions into meaningful choices. We'll help guide you along the way, remind you and your partner to stay true to yourselves and your relationship. And on the day of the wedding, you'll be free to simply enjoy and cherish the beautiful day you've created.


Who is behind Simple Day?

Hello! I'm Amanda Buchanan, the lead coordinator and owner at Simple Day. I've spent more than 10 years working in and studying the wedding and event planning industry. My experience with all types of weddings and couples is what led me to create Simple Day. It's an important narrative that seems to be fading from the industry. By helping couples focus their planning, I hope to bring it back to what it's all about: love.

Where do I even begin?! AMANDA IS THE MOST AMAZING PERSON EVER! Not only is she an amazing wedding planner, but she is just an all together incredible person. She made the planning process a complete breeze and made sure everyone and thing was in line. She is definitely a bride's advocate, and I'm sure without her, things would not have gone as smoothly as they did. She will do whatever it takes to make sure your vision is seen through to the end! And, in the end, you will end up with a friend as well, which is always an added bonus!!! I could go on and on and on about how amazing she is, but find out for yourself, you'll never regret it!

Our wedding day was simply perfect. Every detail was exactly how we imagined it or better but none of that would have been possible without Amanda. From the very first phone call, Amanda made us feel comfortable and at ease. She made everything easy with her client portal, her day of timeline, working directly with our vendors and locations, and being completely accessible for every nervous bride phone call and text I made! Amanda was the key to our wedding and we are beyond thankful for all of her help and guidance through the most perfect day of our lives! She is simply the best in the business!

We adored working with Amanda! She was so helpful leading up to the day and made sure she e-mailed us a timeline well before, asked how she could assist us, and organized every last detail! She also came up with creative solutions for problem spots in the timeline and was a total rockstar. On the day of, she was organized and on it! We loved working with her and would highly recommend!

We loved working with Simple Day! They are a great planner and a great partner! Highly recommend!

Amanda with Simple Day is one of my favorite wedding coordinators to work with! She is an expert in intimate events, and making sure your tastes and personality are exemplified in your big day! She also works closely with all of your vendors to be sure your big day is everything you want it to be. It'll be the best Simple Day you have!

I cannot even say enough GREAT things about Amanda! She is super nice and joyful to be around and she also knows how to do her job perfectly. She was able to whip up a bridal boudoir styled shoot for me in a matter of 3 days - including a venue, engagement ring, lingerie, and make-up artist! I love working with her as she is super professional and does not crack under pressure. She is calm and collected when faced with a tight deadline and rocks it out like nobody's business. She stays true to her brand of simplicity and smaller weddings, but she NEVER disappoints. I am sure you will love working with Amanda just as much as I do!
