I am disappointed in the services received. I did not get much for my money. As soon as we started working with Amanda, we specified exactly what she was going to help with for the wedding. My biggest need was for overall design insight since we were starting with a blank slate. There was no help with this. Budget planning was listed in our contract. We never even talked about the budget... It was the same situation with DJ, transportation, caterer, florist, etc. I did the work, but still had to pay for nonexistent help? Initially, we did not ceremony location help in the contract, but after I struggled to find a place, I reached out to Amanda for help. She provided a few places what wouldn’t even work for us (1 would hold a quarter of our guest list, one I had already told her I looked into and they wouldn’t do just a ceremony, etc). It was so frustrating I just found my own place. Even with the "help" of that e-mail that probably took 5 minutes of research she still charged us an extra $200! One of her responsibilities for the reception was to get limes and cut them up for the bars. We found the bag of limes the next day shoved in a drawer. Another duty was to just make sure everything was going well and handle problems. There was an issue with the 2nd bar not being open for cocktail hour. I was getting pictures taken & was unaware of the problem but the logistics should have been handled by Amanda or her assistant. However, my guests had to take control & fix the problem. She did help some that day, but definitely not $2000 worth of help. Overall, Amanda is a very pleasant person, she is kind and makes you feel like she can and will help you in your wedding planning process. However, looking back, I don't feel like I received much direction, ideas, or support. I am disgusted with what I paid. It may have been more worthwhile to only hire her as a 'day of' coordinator because she was helpful for most of the wedding day, but definitely not throughout the process
