Aimee was amazing! The weather for our wedding was unseasonably cold and windy. Aimee knew the venue and what to do so that our guests were comfortable. She also solved problems before we knew there was a problem. She had great relationships with the Omni in Hilton Head and with our DJ, Henry from JKL so they easily handled any last minute adjustments. All we had to do that day was enjoy the party. Aimee took care of everything!Sent on 11/29/2017

Aimee was fantastic to work with! We chose the wedding management package and she saved us from so much stress. From the beginning she provided great advice. She knew the vendors in the area and had worked with most of them. She could tell us what had worked well and what could be more questionable. I felt totally confident handing over the coordination to Aimee as we got close to the day. I tend to be nervous and was a relaxed and joyful bride on the big day knowing that we were in good hands. Aimee handled challenges with our flowers that arose the day of and didn't even let me know. I appreciate that so much. I highly recommend Aimee and Amanda Rose Weddings!Sent on 11/22/2017
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you Marika!!!! I am so happy I was able to keep your wedding day seamless, stress free and beautiful! You and Alan are awesome, I cannot wait to hear where life takes you!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful and magical Purely Decor (Linda and Aimee) made our daughter's wedding! Aimee stored our personal items at her home (it was a destination and we are from Ohio) and Linda graciously and professionally worked all our changes we made to the decor. The day of the wedding, Linda called out to me, walked towards me, and asked how I liked the reveal...we both hugged and were teary eyed!! Thank you, thank you, and God bless! I wouldn't use anyone else for your wedding plans than Linda at Purely Decor! And it is a must to use Aimee as your wedding planner...it cannot be done without her help, believe me!!Sent on 10/26/2017

Aimee is AMAZING. We felt so blessed to have found her. I can't imagine planning a wedding without her. Through hurricane Irma, not knowing if we would be able to have the wedding she stayed in contact with us on a daily basis. Aimee managed all of our vendors and is very attentive to detail. Wedding day was absolutely perfect! It was a pleasure to work with Aimee and we made a wonderful friend along the way.Sent on 10/01/2017
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you so much Kristen! I truly enjoyed getting to know both of you and your families! I am so happy that you were able to have the beautiful beach wedding that you envisioned... Irma couldn't keep us down!! Stay in touch!

I had the pleasure of working with Aimee at Amanda Rose Weddings for our September wedding at the Omni Hilton Head Shorehouse, and was completely blown away by her attention to detail, efficiency, and creativity - not to mention her ability to work under pressure!Sent on 01/06/2018
Our wedding fell on the Saturday following Hurricane Irma, which easily could have created extra jitters (we were planning from afar, and had friends/family flying in from all over the country!), but Aimee went well above and beyond, keeping us updated on the island conditions (in real time, despite power outages and evacuations!) and communicated with all our vendors to make sure everyone knew our wedding was, in fact, still on! While we were super fortunate that everything went on as planned, knowing Aimee had plan b (and, likely, plan c) in place should anything need to change last minute, was worth every penny we paid - and then some!
Admittedly, I was NOT the easiest bride - I had several "out there" ideas, like releasing butterflies during our ceremony in honor of my late parents, coordinating homemade desserts from my brother, and an unruly "Pup of Honor," yet Aimee politely took every request in stride, provided expert advice, and ultimately guided us every step of the way, resulting in what many of our guests said was the best wedding they've ever attended!
The day of our wedding, I can honestly say I would not have enjoyed myself or been as present without Aimee's incredible support. Alongside her team, she took care of every single detail to keep the day running smoothly and checked in with me continuously to make sure I was happy and relaxed. Not having my Mom by my side throughout the planning process, and there to witness our big day, was deeply emotional, but Aimee truly went out of her way to make sure I felt supported and cared for, for which I will be forever grateful. Thank you, Amanda Rose, not just for bringing my vision to life, but for introducing us to a new friend!
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Hi Annie!! You are so sweet, thank you!! Your photos are gorgeous! It was truly an honor to help bring your wedding vision to life. No Irma could stop me from giving you an amazing wedding day :) Cannot wait to see you both next time you visit!

I used Amanda Rose 10 years ago to plan a small wedding and more recently to plan a post-wedding brunch for 60 people in my home. They did a fabulous job both times. I wouldn't plan an event without them. Linda and Aimee are incredibly responsive and present fun, creative and helpful ideas. Their knowledge of the various vendors in unsurpassed. Plus, they're really nice and a joy to work with. They are "roll up their sleeves" hard working and they make party-planning completely worry-free.Sent on 04/13/2017

We worked with Aimee Fennessey for the past 18 months or so for our wedding on 9/17/16 in Bluffton and having her was worth every penny! My parents, my husband, and I were beyond thankful to have her as we planned this wedding from Indianapolis and Columbia, MO. From our very first phone conversation, I was instantly at ease with Aimee. She helped balance my anxious personality and made sure that my original vision for our day was never altered, even when guest counts and weather became areas of concern. Her expertise, guidance, and patience were exactly what my mom and I needed throughout the planning. Aimee worked wonderfully with all of our other vendors and made sure our wedding day timeline was thorough and detailed. Because of all of this, our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Kevin and I cannot thank you enough, Aimee!Sent on 09/26/2016
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:It was a pleasure working with you, Kevin and your family throughout the planning process!! I am so happy that I was able to help give you the wedding you always dreamed of!! Stay in touch!

I worked with Aimee for our wedding on 9/3/2016 at the Omni in Hilton Head. She was great and made planning from San Francisco (where we live) not as stressful as it would have been otherwise! The day before our wedding, Hurricane Hermine blew through and we had to make some last minute changes regarding where we could do the rehearsal. She actually drove from her house all the way to our beach house where the wedding party was staying in driving rain and wind so we could practice. We couldn't have done it without her. In addition to Aimee, we also used Linda from Amanda Rose for the decor which turned out beautifully. I highly recommend using the driftwood chandelier she created..... I got a ton of compliments on it! Overall, Aimee and Linda did a great job and I am glad we used them.Sent on 09/23/2016
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:The hurricane only made your wedding weekend more memorable :) And the day of your wedding could not have been more beautiful weather! Thank you so much Katie and Bryant! Stay in touch! - Aimee

Planning a wedding in Hilton Head all the way from Louisville, KY was an overwhelming task. We hired Amanda Rose Weddings and worked with Aimee who made everything a breeze! Her personality was an amazing fit for us, and we were able to relax with 100% confidence in her ability to make our day go off without a hitch. I truly do not know how we would have done it without her. Thanks to Aimee we had a beautiful, worry free day!Sent on 11/14/2016

Aimee Fennessy was our wedding planner for our daughters wedding on April 30, 2016. We decided to be thrifty and have her for the 6 weeks before and the day of the wedding. How I wish we had hired her for the entire time!! At 6 weeks out she made sure that all our vendors were confirmed and knew what to do, and how much we still owed them. She made an awesome timeline for us detailing everything about the wedding day. She took absolutely all the worry from our daughter and ourselves so that we could absolutely enjoy the day! I would highly reccomend her to anyone planning a wedding!Sent on 05/11/2016
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words!! You combined the best of elegance and simplicity to have the most beautiful day! It was a pleasure getting to know you and your family. Stay in touch! Love, Aimee
Rebecca · Married on 11/07/2015
I cannot say enough good things about Linda from Amanda Rose Weddings. I am not very "bridal" or artistic and to make it more complicated, I was planning my Hilton Head wedding from Tennessee. She took my thoughts and transformed them into the most gorgeous venue ever. I got so many compliments from guests on the decor. She was also able to recommend a florist when my original one was not responsive. She knows exactly what looks good and what is overkill. She also didn't try to overdo it just to make extra money on her end. The result was a tasteful and beautiful venue that was just perfect - I cannot give her enough stars.Sent on 12/13/2015
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Rebecca..thank you for this wonderful review and for selecting us to help style your wedding. My entire Purely Decor team loved making this all happen for you. It was great working with youand I adored all the colors .
Michelle · Married on 10/24/2015
Aimee Fennessey is AMAZING!! She did an excellent job organizing my Special Day. On a daily basis she would receive multiple emails from me, my mom, and my fiancé. and answered all of our questions and made us feel at ease. She is super efficient and well organized. She met with all our vendors and made sure everyone was aware of the timeline. I also appreciate that even though she has multiple clients, she makes you feel like you are her only client and the top priority. She is also very easy to talk to you and kept me calm on my big day. She also had everything a bride could possibly need in her emergency bridal bag she brought with her to the bridal suite. :)Sent on 11/10/2015
I am very glad I decided to use a wedding planner and that my mom found her. She is worth every penny! Thank you Aimee!

We hired Amanda Rose Weddings & Events for many things! My wedding was at the Omni in HHI and we rented chairs for our ceremony. We also rented navy tablecloths, cafe lighting and draping around the pavillion. I was able to add items along the way without any problems. I ended up adding a few things the week of, namely adjusting the number of tablecloths for our final head count. Linda was so kind and quick to respond to any request I had. They have a huge selection of decor and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need in the area.Sent on 09/25/2014
Amanda Rose Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you so much for your kind review. It was great working with you. The decor you selected made the space just pop. Would love to see photographs. Linda

We hired Linda from Amanda Rose Weddings as our wedding planner for our June, 2013 wedding in Charleston, SC at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. In short, we highly recommend Linda as a wedding planner. First, we are from Chicago, and had never visited Charleston, so we relied heavily on Linda's recommendations when we chose our vendors and venue. Because we were unfamiliar with the area, we truly relied on Linda's experience with the vendors, and her suggestions when it came to the cost of everything from rentals to liquor to food. Linda suggested a handful of vendors, and we selected from among them. She gave us the pros and cons of each of them, provided photographs that she took on her own (so we weren't just relying on the Internet), and also included options of vendors with whom she hadn't worked, but about whom she heard good things. In short, we loved everything, and we attribute that to Linda. Without her suggestions, we would not have found some of our favorite vendors. We learned from our vendors that Linda has a great reputation among them as a planner-- which definitely helps. Additionally, Linda guides you through the entire planning process. She is organized, thoughtful, enthusiastic, and has great taste. She made even the most mundane parts of the planning process fun. Linda also ensures that your wedding day will be problem-free. She works tirelessly to make sure that any last-minute issues are handled by her-- and not you. When it looked like it would monsoon on our wedding day, she sprung into action, contacted vendors, made last-minute changes, and kept us all calm. Finally, Linda will go above and beyond the call of duty for you. She even helped my husband find a house for his bachelor party in Savannah! In summary, we highly recommend Amanda Rose weddings. She will help you make your wedding day everything you dreamed it would be.Sent on 06/27/2013

As my mom and I said to each other at LEAST 20 times, I don't know what I would have done without Linda! She performed the typical tasks of a wedding planner flawlessly- keeping track of all the vendors and details that I would never have thought of- but also went above and beyond. She was able to turn my (often incoherent) ideas into an absolutely gorgeous reality, and was a wonderful source of advice and even just a sounding board when I needed to vent my stress!!! I never once felt rushed or panicked- even when I forgot little things towards the big day, Linda was totally reassuring and handled everything. My family and I could not have been happier with Linda's work and with Amanda Rose Weddings!Sent on 07/03/2013

A year and a half and one child later, I am finally writing this review! I had to review ARW and owner Linda Smreczak because they deserve to be acknowledged for the work they put into making my wedding perfect. My fabulous wedding on Hilton Head Island would not have been even remotely possible without Linda. My husband and I live in Los Angeles, and our entire wedding was planned long distance with Linda taking the reins in South Carolina. We made two trips out prior to the wedding – one to visit venues with Linda and one to meet with the florist and have our tasting (Linda arranged and attended all meetings with us) – and everything else was taken care of through conference calls and e-mails! Linda went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, and I will admit that I am a very demanding person. She responded immediately to e-mails, and was always available for questions. When we weren’t sure how to deal with the welcome bags we wanted to do – as every single wedding guest was coming in from out of town for the wedding – because we couldn’t bring all of the goodies with us in our suitcases, she let us have everything delivered to her home! UPS made at least a dozen deliveries to her house with wedding stuff. Linda picked up maps and brochures of the area for us to include in the welcome bags, and she even went had our escort cards printed for us. Really, anything we needed her to help us with she was there to do. She also has relationships with truly amazing vendors – our florist was incredible, our DJ so fun, and the dessert caterer (separate from the venue, because I needed a dessert table!) absolutely delicious. Planning a wedding feels like a fulltime job, and when you are 3,000 miles away from your venue it can feel like an impossible task! Whether you are local or planning a destination wedding, I recommend you utilize Linda’s expertise. Thanks to her I had an absolutely fabulous wedding.Sent on 05/13/2014
