Amanda Went Above & Beyond

“I don’t know how we could’ve planned our wedding without Amanda Douglas. She went above and beyond leading up to the wedding, helping us plan things we didn’t think of and gave us emotional support (wedding planning is no walk in the park!). On the wedding day Amanda kept everything going so smoothly, even making sure I always had a cold beer in my hand during the hot afternoon reception. My wife and I are so grateful we chose Amanda Douglas.”

– Tedi & Evan

I Could Really Relax & Enjoy

“What I loved the most about working with Amanda Douglas Events is I had a list of my “worries” of our wedding day and they took it and took care of everything, and I didn’t have to worry about something not getting done. All of the details were looked after – and I felt like I could really relax and enjoy our special day!”

– Kim & Stephen

She Became a Caring Friend Throughout the Whole Experience

“5+ stars! Amanda exceeded our expectations. She’s professional, super kind, hard working, and super easy going! She was extremely helpful in planning the wedding and had great ideas to share, always being respectful and supportive of our wedding dreams and visions. The day of she made everything run so smoothly. My husband and I got to sit back and enjoy the day. Everyone kept saying how impressed they were with her after the wedding. She’s more than a wedding planner: she becomes a caring friend throughout the whole experience and does anything and everything with a smile on her face. 🙂 We love you, Amanda!”

We Had Absolutely No Stress on the Day of the Wedding

“My husband and I had absolutely no stress on the day of the wedding, and I owe that almost entirely to Amanda, she rocked it! It is worth every penny to invest in a wedding planner, even if only for the “day of” (what we did). The amount of stress she saved us from on the day of made everything worth it. Instead of requiring family or friends to set things up, and ensure everything was ready, we ALL got to relax, have fun and enjoy a really amazing day!”

– Samantha & Geoff

Amanda Made Our Big Day Seamless

“I worked with Amanda for 10 months to plan my wedding. I lived in Calgary, but got married in Winnipeg. We had a Skype interview – I immediately signed the contract. Next thing you know I gave her a weekend I was able to be in Winnipeg, and she booked a whole day looking at venues, flower, chairs, and various rentals. It was amazing. The next few weeks as we booked other vendors via Skype, she brought the whole wedding together. I can’t say enough great things about her! She aided in any wedding related meltdown, and  is a true artist when it comes to weddings. I would do my wedding day 10000 times again; it was the best day of my life. That is largely because of how seamless Amanda made our big day! I would recommend her to every single person!”

Serious Wedding Planning Professionals

“Amanda and her team are serious wedding planning professionals and are an absolute dream to work with. Know you are in good hands on your big day. Relax and let them do their thang – they do it well.”

– Lauren & Peter

Our Wedding Day Was Flawless

“I never thought of myself as a “wedding planner” type of bride, but hiring Amanda was the best wedding decision that my husband and I made.  We planned our Winnipeg wedding from Toronto, so we initially hired Amanda to alleviate any long distance planning stressors. We ended up hiring her company for Styling + Design, Day-of Coordination & some Hourly Consulting – and I’m soooo happy we did!

Our wedding day was flawless, and I still get complimented on how beautiful and organized everything was. I eventually thought of Amanda as my “wedding therapist” because she had a solution for every wedding-related problem I had. And even though she was busy with other weddings, she always managed to email me back within a few days. Having her constant support throughout the planning process was absolutely invaluable.”

– Ashley & Kenny

Hiring Amanda Was One of the Best Decisions We Made

“We hired Amanda as our day of coordinator – it was one of the best decisions we made. We loved having her guidance during the planning stages and relied on her knowledge, creativity and experience to help plan such a unique event. On our wedding day Amanda’s presence was even more valuable. She brought a sense of composure and calm to what could have been an otherwise hectic day. We also greatly appreciated that all of details and special moments that we requested were executed perfectly. We’d recommend Amanda’s services to any of our friends and family for their wedding day.”

– Shannon & Jordy

Amanda Was Worth Every Penny

To be honest I was not 100% sure I needed a wedding coordinator/planner as the planning part seemed to me like the part that makes getting married fun. All I can say now is I’m SOOOO happy that Amanda was part of our day. I can EASILY say that it was by far worth every penny! Her organization, attention to detail and easy going attitude made our day that much more enjoyable. With Amanda’s help we were able to enjoy the day instead of worrying about timelines and everything else. My friends and family are still talking about how helpful she was! Amanda aimed to please and that is exactly what she did at our wedding! We could not have had such a great wedding without her! HIGHLY  recommended!

– Ashley & Hugh

I Could Step out of “Planning” and Enjoy Getting Married

“We worked with Amanda for day of coordination. Amanda herself was already scheduled for another couple’s wedding the same day as ours, so on the actual day we had one of her other coordinators and an assistant. The meetings we had with Amanda through the process were a blast! We knew what we wanted out of the day, and her advice and skills kept us on track. And how can you not have fun when there’s a visit from Ollie (Amanda’s dog) during your meeting?

The rehearsal and wedding both went off without a hitch. Amanda’s team was there to get us in gear when we needed it, and handle any issues. They even had a chance to bust out emergency boutonniere skills when my dad’s didn’t make it to the ceremony.

Bottom line: if you’re thinking of working with Amanda and her team, go for it! One of my bridesmaids commented post ceremony that I was incredibly relaxed while we were getting ready the morning of. I think working with Amanda Douglas Events was a big part of that, since I could step out of planning and enjoy getting married.”
