My wedding day couldn’t have been as memorable and beautiful without the help of Amanda from Sweetly Designed Events. I started planning about 6 months before my wedding day and was overwhelmed with the whole process. I was in school, working full time, and helping to care for my sick grandfather. Two months prior to my wedding day, I connected with Amanda who offered to help with the venue layout as well as floral arrangments for the wedding: centerpieces, chapel aisle and altar, welcome table, and bouquets. Being that I had no solid ideas about how to go about decorating the venue hall or which flowers/greenery would match my theme, Amanda took the initiative to share with me different options based on my budget and theme. She walked me through which flowers complimented each other alongside different greenery. She honored all of my request and gave me sound counsel, recommendations and referrals. Every step of the way she was very timely in responding to any emails, text messages and phone calls and made me feel secure that everything would work out.
The Thursday and Friday before the wedding day, Amanda spent hours alongside a few of my friends, setting up the venue and allowing us to use her supplies and extended a helping hand by running a few more errands that were not required of her. The Saturday, day of the wedding, she completed all the floral arrangements with her partner Shelby. I, my husband, my family and friends were absolutely blown away by the floral arrangements that Amanda put together. Still today, I am obsessed with my bouquet that she made me and tried to preserve it as long as I could.
There are no words that can truly express the level of gratitude and respect I have for Amanda for making my wedding day special. She not only alleviated my worry, but she exceeded my expectations and vision I had for my wedding day.

My fiancee and I had one simple request to keep our wedding planning and wedding day stress free. Amanda has more than exceeded our expectations. She saved us a lot of money, providing props, design recommendations, averted so many foreseeable crises months before the wedding started. She was flexible with my family's needs, and collaborated with my in-laws in wedding preparations. She ended every call with "Let me know if you can think of anything else you need..." She missed our rehearsal dinner after our rather awful florist messed up our flowers last minute.
Amanda was almost like a part of our family, honoring both my needs and my family's, finding peaceful solutions where she could. The wedding turned was like a fairytale. For someone as laid-back and almost absent in my wedding planning, Amanda stepped up and turned what I thought was going to be a beautiful day into an extraordinary experience for me and my now husband! Thank you so much!

We contacted Amanda and Shelby about the partial planning and coordination package only two months before the wedding. Even with unusually short notice, they did a phenomenal job. They helped plan all the remaining details, bringing our attention to things we had not considered and giving us great ideas and recommendations all along the way. Their experience planning and coordinating numerous weddings gave us the confidence to trust their advice. They took care of all the setup/breakdown and decorations with detail and precision. They personalized the design to our needs. They researched vendors we had not yet secured, priced out and purchased all of the extras needed for the setup (e.g. flowers, linens, desserts, personalized signs), and coordinated with the venue, vendors, and ceremony participants beforehand and on the day of. I cannot even list all the details they managed, and they made sure everything was covered.
Before we hired them, we were doing all the planning ourselves (in the midst of busy work schedules and moving). I honestly cannot imagine how we would have finished the remaining planning and setup/breakdown without their help. They took a huge load off our shoulders and allowed us (and our family and friends) to thoroughly enjoy our wedding week with as little stress as possible. All of this was for a reasonable price, far more affordable than what many wedding planners and coordinators charge.
The wedding was beautiful from start to finish, and our family and friends are still talking about it. I would absolutely recommend Sweetly Designed Events for a wedding or any other major event.

Wow, I cannot say enough nice things about Amanda and her team. Hiring her to plan and execute my wedding was the best decision I made throughout the whole process (my husband agrees). When we had to pivot due to COVID, significantly downsize the wedding, switch venues, hire a caterer, etc., Amanda took the lead, found and contacted numerous alternative venues (including the one we ended up using), and was so helpful, patient, and accommodating. She had so many rental items that we were able to use (dinnerware, silverware, decorations, cocktail tables, etc.), and she acquired additional rentals that we needed for us. She also contacted hair/ makeup artists for me when the one I had hired cancelled due to COVID. She also did our flowers and arranged the most beautiful bridal bouquet for me, boutonnieres, table arrangements, and long garland for the dinner table!
All the decorations were beautiful, romantic, and elegant, just as I had envisioned. She and her assistants not only set up everything (literally everything) for the wedding, but also broke down and packed everything up the next day. The planning process felt very easy and stress-free for me because
Amanda basically did everything, and I just told her what I liked/ envisioned. I'm so lucky I had Amanda's help. I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding, large or small. She is more than worth the money!

HIRE THEM! You will be so glad that you did. Sweetly Designed Events has been the absolute best decision of our entire wedding planning process. Amanda has been an absolute godsend. She is very communicative and collaborative. Sweetly Designed Events offers a wide range of decor items and the floral arrangements are stunning. Amanda brought some sample centerpiece arrangements to our food tasting and setup a mock table. We were so impressed. She really listened to what we wanted our space to look like. Because of COVID, we have had to move our wedding several times and she has been there every step of the way.
Amanda and her team printed our change the dates, they have been patient with all the changes and she has checked in frequently to ensure we were OK. They put so much care not only into the look of our wedding but expressed care for us as well. We had an intimate ceremony on October 9th and I was completely blown away by how stunning they made the Chapel look. They also made me the most beautiful bouquet.
My husband and I just felt so special and I will never forget walking down the aisle taking in all of their beautiful decor and floral arrangements. We moved our larger celebration to the spring and we cannot wait to work with Sweetly Designed Events again. I cannot thank them enough.

Honestly, I don't know how we would have pulled everything together if it wasn't for Sweetly Designed Events.
We decided on the partial planning and day of coordination and I'm so glad we did! My family and myself did not have to worry about a thing on my wedding day and was able to enjoy the day and not stress out over all of the details. There were so many things we forgot last minute and Amanda and her team were able to gather the last minute items we needed which was a huge relief.
They even cleaned everything up for us and got everything back to all the vendors that night even though our wedding went until after midnight. Every time I needed anything, I got a call back within a few hours and it was very each to reach them when anything came up.

Hire Sweetly Designed Events if you want your dream wedding to come true!
Amanda truly executed my vision and was extremely helpful every step of the way. She has a true eye for design! I received endless compliments about the flower arraignments that she created for my wedding. In addition the backdrops she created for me were beautifully put together.
I couldn’t be happier with hiring Sweetly Designed Events. I would highly recommend using them for your event!

Amanda and her team at Sweetly Designed Events created some absolutely gorgeous floral decorations for my wedding ceremony yesterday; and I was blown away! They created some beautiful pew arrangements, an altar garland, and bridesmaids bouquets.
Everything looked beautiful. Along with making beautiful creations, Amanda was very easy to work with— she met with me a couple of times beforehand to discuss arrangement options/ show me samples; and she even dropped the bridesmaids bouquets off at the hotel we were staying at before going to the church to decorate! The prices are also unbeatable.
I highly recommend Sweetly Designed Events. Thanks, Amanda!
