    Thank you Amanda, Heather, and Danielle!!

    Amanda and her team were very helpful and made sure our day ran smoothly! The decor was set up exactly how we invisioned, and it could not have been more beautiful! They were also available to answer any questions or accomodate any request we had, both before the wedding and on our wedding day. It gave us a lot of peace of mind knowing that they were there on our big day to handle anything that may have come up!

    You are so totally welcome! We loved getting to take care of everything, all the details and worries, for you :)

    Heather and Rex’s Wedding

    Amanda did an amazing job on our wedding! We had a limited budget and it didn’t scare her away, she was kind, helpful, full of ideas, and helped make our wedding the best it could be. I would highly recommend, because she is the best.

    Amanda Douglas Events's reply:

    Awe, well thank you so much! We loved getting to work with you guys and help bring it all together! xoxo

    Very happy

    Amanda & her team are amazing. With very short notice, they were able to help get things organized for us and get things on track. On the day of the event, they went over and beyond. They knew exactly what I wanted, they augmented the decor and made sure everything went smoothly, we had so much fun! We are so happy and grateful.

    Amanda Douglas Events's reply:

    Awe, I'm so happy to hear you were so pleased! We wanted to make it wonderful, fun, and stressfree for you.

    Amanda is amazing!!!

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Amanda Douglas Events! Amanda was spectacular as our Day-Of Wedding Coordinator, and we feel so fortunate to have had her by our side on the big day.

    Amanda is friendly, professional, knowledgeable and organized, and her attention to detail is absolutely incredible!! Amanda was so helpful during our pre-wedding meetings, and was quick to answer any questions and provide valuable guidance as we planned our Winnipeg wedding from Calgary. When it came to the rehearsal and wedding day coordination, Amanda went above and beyond to ensure things ran smoothly. She also did such a fantastic job setting up our personal decor and coordinating all of our vendors. We have had family and friends repeatedly tell us how blown away they were by Amanda's professionalism and helpfulness throughout every aspect of our rehearsal and wedding day.

    We cannot begin to imagine what we would have done without Amanda, and we will forever be singing her praises!

    Amanda Douglas Events's reply:

    Awe, thank you! It was my pleasure and I LOVED getting to work with you and your family - you have amazing friends and family around you. Cheers to your wonderful future together! xoxo

    We decided to hire Amanda Douglas to plan our wedding because neither of us had a clue about how to plan a wedding, we are terrible at planning, and we weren’t living in Winnipeg. Between her incredible organizational skills, serious knowledge of everything wedding related, helpful planning tools and lovely personality, it was the best decision we could have made!

    Amanda made the entire process fun and took away so much of the stress that comes with wedding planning. Our meetings were always a great balance of planning and fun (lots of laughs and bonding over our mutual love of dogs!). She is super easy to get along with, and it felt like she always had our back as she liaised with all the vendors and took care of all the little details that we would never have thought of. She kept us on track by sending us friendly reminders and to-do lists to get tasks done (much appreciated because we are such procrastinators!). She was available to answer all of our questions along the way (no matter how silly!), listened to all of our ideas and then helped bring them to life.

    On the day of our wedding, having Amanda and Danielle there was completely invaluable - coordinating with all of the vendors, keeping everything on schedule, setting up the venue – they kept everything running smoothly. We were able to just enjoy our day and not worry about a thing. We are so appreciative of all her hard work and honestly can’t imagine what we would have done without her! We absolutely loved working with Amanda!

    We worked with Amanda for day of coordination for our wedding at the end of August only a couple weeks ago. 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, Heather and Danielle.

    The meetings we had with Amanda through the process were a blast! We knew what we wanted out of the day, and her advice & 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. Heather and Danielle were there to get us in gear when we needed it, and handle any issues. Heather also had a chance to bust out her 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 finally and enjoy getting married.

    Amanda made everything so easy and relaxed from the moment we even considered getting a wedding planner. She gave us endless advice, and provided her expertise whenever I needed it! She was always pleasant to work with, and brought up ideas I may not have thought of. Best investment a bride-to-be can make!
