    Hardworking, organized, professional

    We met with 5-6 different wedding coordinators over Zoom and chose to work with Amanda because she stood out from the rest. She was amazing to work with from start to finish. Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, so it was a huge help having Amanda in our corner. She went above and beyond helping us pick up and drop off our wedding arch rental within a very specific time window and picking up our cake. She also drove all the way to Banff and back for our rehearsal the evening before and still showed up bright and early at 6.45 am for our wedding the next day.

    She was extremely organized in managing our vendors, putting together our timeline and sending us spreadsheets so that everything was in one place. We asked a few times if there was anything we could help her with, but she always had everything taken care of.

    When we met her the day before for our rehearsal, it felt like we were meeting a friend even though we had never met in person prior to that day. We were able to fully enjoy our wedding day since she and her assistant Daityn took care of all the set up, organization, scheduling, and take down with incredible communication, hard work and attention to detail. We placed a lot of trust in her to set up our ceremony and reception decor with only a brief description of where we wanted things and she was able to bring our vision to life and blow us away. She was always on top of things and everything ran so smoothly that we even ran ahead of schedule - something we certainly didn't expect!

    If you want to actually be able to enjoy your wedding day (and the weeks leading up to it), we would highly recommend getting a wedding coordinator and choosing Amanda as your girl. She is incredibly hardworking and professional and so responsive. She exceeded our expectations entirely. Thank you so much - you are the best!

    Our amazing wedding coordinator

    If you need a wedding coordinator, Amanda is your girl! She is amazing at what she does, she brings passion and skill to the table. I was so impressed with her attention to detail, her communication and overall help with the constant changes to our wedding plans. She's patient, super kind and of course, the nicest person you'll ever meet - the best coordinator you could ask for :) Thanks Amanda! Appreciate all that you did.

    We love Amanda!

    Amanda did an amazing job on our wedding day! I am a wedding planner myself so I was very picky on who I picked for our vendors! I was looking for someone I could pass my design off to and trust to have it done the way we wanted! Amanda and Monica took my design and brought it to life, it was even better then I had imagined! They did an amazing job and were so fun to work with. They made us feel so special on our day and even had our signature drinks ready for us when we arrived to the reception venue! They took care of everything so us and our families could enjoy our day! We would highly recommend Day of Diva, you will not be disappointed! Amanda and Monica we cannot thank you enough for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!!!

    Amazing!!!

    Amanda (& Monica) were INCREDIBLE to work with! I booked Amanda for day of coordination and partial planning and this was one of my best choices. Our wedding had a ton of moving parts, from an out of town venue, to four different rental companies, shuttle buses, floral deliveries, pick ups, etc. and Amanda handled it flawlessly. She made my day so stress free that my guests remarked that I was the calmest bride they had ever seen. She is so organized and such a hard worker. She helped decorate the venue and tables and has such a keen eye for design. She worked and communicated amazingly with our other vendors and had such a positive attitude. The timeline she created was flawless and I loved that she made a spreadsheet that detailed all of my decor, where it was rented from and where it would be placed at the venue- so organized! She went above and beyond to make the weekend run smoothly and I could not have done it without her! She came and helped organize our 12 (yes 12!) bridesmaids and groomsmen at our rehearsal ceremony on Thursday, drove out to the venue on Friday to help us set up, worked a 12+hour day on Saturday, and also helped with clean up and drop offs on Sunday. Not to mention, she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. If you are considering hiring a day of coordinator or planner, please hire Amanda- you will not regret it!

    AMAZING! Hire Day of Diva, she won’t disappoint!

    Amanda and her Day of Diva team were AMAZING from start to finish! We hired her prior to the pandemic and through many changes in restrictions and postponements she made the process seamless! I like to say I’m pretty organized, but Amanda is NEXT LEVEL. Whenever I had a question about something on the day of, she was already two steps ahead. She picked up, packed up and returned all of our decor and setup so that we could enjoy the entire day from start to finish alongside our friends and family. Thank you doesn’t even begin to say how grateful we are for her! Hire this girl, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    Amazing wedding planning for Canmore wedding!

    After our initial discovery call with Amanda we knew she was the one to help us plan our Canmore wedding at the Malcolm! We live abroad so knew we needed someone who could take the lead on all of the wedding planning decisions and she exceeded our expectations. For every call we had with Amanda, she was so prepared and very informative. Her design proposal was exactly what we envisioned and the execution of it on the day was incredible. Everything on the day of the wedding ran so smoothly because of Amanda and her team. Knowing that the Day of Diva team were taking care of all of the coordination allowed us to enjoy our day so much. It was truly so great to work with the Day of Diva team and we would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in and around the Calgary area!

    Best Wedding Planners Ever!

    Monica and Amanda were amazing to work with! They made our wedding dreams come to life and made the process so simple and stress free. They handled everything so well and our day turned our beautifully. We told them what we wanted and they made it happen. Was so sad when the wedding ended and I no longer got to talk to them all the time

    A must have for a stress free day!

    Amanda and the Day of Diva Team made our wedding day a DREAM!! Amanda was so patient as I took my vision out of my head and she was able to turn it into real life perfectly! It was so lovely not to have to think about a thing and just get to enjoy our special day with each other and our family. Amanda was amazing at keeping the timeline flowing throughout the day and make up for when we went overtime without even knowing. If you are even half considering needing an extra hand on your wedding, hire the Day of Diva team!!

    Amazing day of coordinator/planner

    Hiring Amanda as my wedding planner/coordinator was the best wedding decision I made! She completely exceeded my expectations! Not only did she help me with my decor decisions, cake tasting, seating arrangements, site visits and an entire wedding day schedule, she did it all during a pandemic. Leading up to the wedding, some last minute changes had to be made, and Amanda executed them with ease, contacting all my other vendors to organize it. On the wedding day, I was never stressed because I knew I had Amanda by my side. I was able to enjoy the day and for that I am so grateful. I would recommend Amanda to every bride!

    Day of Diva's reply:

    Thank you so much Nadia. You made my job so much fun, I couldn't have asked for better clients

    Day of Coordination

    Amanda and her team were amazing. We did the day of coordination, it was so nice not to have to worry about anything! Everything went so smoothly! She even did pick ups of a few things for me to make my load lighter! Couldn't recommend more.
