Amanda is an absolutely incredible wedding coordinator and I simply cannot recommend her enough. I was someone who thought I could plan most of my wedding and my husband convinced me that we needed a coordinator. It was the best decision we made. So many small details come up when planning a wedding and it exponentially increases 6 weeks out from the wedding date, and that is when Amanda comes in. She takes over all communications with vendors, triple checks everything on your contracts, and handles everything day of the wedding. She is an extremely thoughtful and caring person, and truly wants to do everything in her power to make your wedding the best day of your life (which she did for us!) Amanda was always one step ahead and thinking of things before us and gives you a full checklist to ensure there is nothing missed.
We had multiple days for our wedding and Amanda was involved with everything. She was flexible and accommodating for all wedding styles/preferences and has so much experience that she can tell you stories of how it has worked at prior weddings she has planned. Amanda knows literally all of the vendors and already has personal relationships that are so valuable (especially if you are like me and not local to the area!) Amanda steps in when needed to coordinate all logistics day of while also remaining so calm (which is exactly the energy needed on your wedding day).
If you are reading these reviews, trust me that you need a coordinator and it should absolutely be A Swanky Affair. You will be so happy you worked with Amanda!

Amanda of A Swanky Affair is incredible! First things first, she's incredibly kind and easy to work with. But second, she makes sure that EVERY detail of your wedding is discussed and taken care of.
My now husband and I were scheduled to get married April 2020, so I'm sure you can imagine the chaos that came with rescheduling, new dates, new vendors, etc. Through every change, Amanda's attention to detail made the process smooth and manageable. She helped ease our stress and accommodated our questions and concerns.
When we finally were able to have our wedding in November of 2021, everything was seamless. The day ran so smoothly, I did not have to think about one detail. From the rehearsal to the ceremony, everything turned out beautifully and Amanda was a big part of this.
Overall, I highly recommend Amanda for your upcoming wedding!!

Amanda is simply the best! We started working with her in early 2020 for our January 2021 wedding. We thought the world would have recovered from COVID by the time our wedding rolled around, but unfortunately that wasn't the case. Amanda took the re-scheduling in stride and was able to move every single one of our vendors to our new date in November 2021. She was always two steps ahead of us with anything we would need to anticipate, and kept in contact with us through frequent emails, texts, calls, and Zoom meetings. Amanda has incredible connections with vendors in the Raleigh/Durham area - she always presented the best three options to us for each vendor type so we could pick what we liked, and then she set up all the meetings. She walked through every step of planning (twice!) and we loved each minute of working with her.
Beyond Amanda's connections and organization skills, she is so kind and personable. She was excited with us as we grew closer to our wedding, and really empathized with us through all the changing of plans. Despite her having many other clients, it always felt like we were a priority to her. We are forever thankful for her hard work. Our wedding was pulled off flawlessly, we couldn't have asked for more!

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!
