  • We can not recommend Amanda highly enough. As wedding planning can go in the era of a pandemic, there can be some hiccups - some larger than others. Throughout them all - Amanda was so incredibly helpful in navigating them. Our vendors would regularly tell us things such as “your wedding planner has been in contact - you’re in good hands”. Throughout the entire planning phase, she was quietly in constant communication with all vendors, which became obvious on the day of the wedding. We had a few things we forgot to bring to the hotel to the hotel we stayed at for our wedding, and she came by early in the morning to drop off anything we needed. She helped guide us through nuances, etiquette, and procedural complexities that come with planning a wedding. On the day of, Amanda was our clock. She had a detailed timeline made - one she did her best to abide by, and encouraged our vendors to do the same. One thing that really impressed us was her demeanor and profess... Read more

  • Friends referred Amanda to us and we are in debt to them for it. Our wedding had gone through multiple plans due to Covid and this summer we finally were able to do it and Amanda was able to pull it all together quickly and create a seamless event that was a truly memorable. In short order Amanda handled communication with a variety of vendors (floral, photography, DJ) we had contracted with and set us up with additional vendors we had not (transportation, dessert, dog assistance for pictures and night of). She also helped make all the right calls about what was needed for the ceremony. We had total confidence in Amanda which made the day enjoyable. We highly, highly recommend her!

  • If you are looking for an event planner - stop and book Amanda right this second. There aren't enough words to describe how AMAZING Amanda is - I'm not kidding my wedding would not have happened without her patience, killer ideas, and planning skills. She truly brings her heart and soul to every meeting, call, text, and of course the wedding weekend. She single handedly helped me replan our wedding in a different state within two months and didn't even bat an eye. The moment I told her we were moving the wedding location, she had five venues ready for us to see the next day. Who does that??? She went above and beyond her job responsibilities to make our day perfect and I can't imagine using anyone else. I want to get married over and over to have her help, but know I gained an incredible friend in the process. Thank you again, Amanda!!!

  • I dont know how to put into words how amazing Amanda is but I’ll try. From day one she went above and beyond, I always knew she was a text away if I needed anything. We had to move our venue 40 days before the wedding due to covid and she made it so easy and walked us through every step of it. I couldn’t have been more relaxed on my wedding weekend because I knew she had it handled. That’s really all a bride can ask for, to be able to soak in the day and know everything is handled. Finally, when I accidentally cut my new husbands lip with the cake cutter (face palm), she ran out and got super glue for someone to glue it back together…when I say she will handle anything, I mean anything!! Amanda was the best decision I made about my wedding, if you hire her you will not regret it for a minute.

  • Amanda was such an incredibly coordinator. When my wedding venue cancelled on us 30 days out she was there to assist with any questions, provide input and listen as I tried to make sense of the chaos. She put me at ease knowing that even with all of the changes everything would be perfect - which it was thanks to her. She thought of everything and made me feel so supported through this process. If you want someone who is rooting for you and your to be spouse then look no further - she is your gal! THANK YOU!

  • We cannot overstate how amazing Amanda from Amanda Paige Events was with coordinating our wedding day. Not only did she keep us sane on the day, but her up front coordination with all of our vendors was truly extraordinary. Amanda took care of everyone (food, DJ, Video, Venue, etc.) making sure they knew what we wanted and where/when to be at all times. The best part of the whole experience with Amanda was receiving the customized schedule she created. It had everything laid out perfectly, and even when something inevitably got off track (unruly wedding party for example) Amanda never skipped a beat, making sure to have flexibility in the schedule to accommodate. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention she drove all of the flowers and décor down from Chicago to our venue in St. Louis, now that is true dedication! We cannot recommend Amanda enough to anyone looking to make their happiest day even better!

  • I was originally against hiring a planner for our 20 person, backyard wedding. But Amanda was absolutely incredible. She became a real partner in planning and evolving our themes, colors and the entire feel of the event. With a vision set, Amanda turned it to reality by bringing in an extensive network of vendors and support staff. On the day of the wedding, Amanda really took all the stress of me and my wife. She managed timelines, got us where we needed to be and let us focus on each other. If/when we do a vow renewal, our first call will be to Amanda.

  • "I am a queer woman of color, and unfortunately, my family does not even know that I got married. Amanda helped my partner and I keep our event private and confidential. She was always willing to listen to the unique nuances of our queer relationship. We seriously would not have been able to pull off such a sacred, beautiful, and fun wedding without her and Shannon's help. She is a fearless wedding planner who is highly organized and demonstrates exquisite attention-to-detail. More importantly, she is compassionate, thoughtful, and willing to go the extra mile for you. This meant a lot to me, especially in an industry that is still very heterosexist and homophobic. My hope is that other LGBTQ partners wishing to get married are able to use Amanda and her team to help make their special day flow much easier. My partner and I are forever grateful to her." -A queer bride who has to remain anonymous

  • Amanda and her team are amazing!!!!! I reached out to Amanda about three weeks before my re-planned Covid wedding in August, and almost instantly she made me feel heard and peaceful! She jumped right in to finalize last minute vendors, create our wedding timeline and find us an amazing day of coordinator, Shannon! We met for tacos and right away, I could tell how excited and professional she was and that carried us through to our exit off of our wedding boat! Amanda was there on Friday to go through our rehearsal, there the morning of my wedding to drop off champagne and help with last minute wedding tasks, and was there at the end of the night to support Shannon! Shannon was our day of coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing! She handled everything we threw at her with calmness and grace! She even bustled my dress when my mom and sister were no where to be found! She there for me when I was feeling seasick and was there to bring my husband and I cake at the end of the night wh...

  • We're so fortunate to have Amanda help us plan our wedding! It is self-evident that she cares not just about the work, but also ensuring the most memorable day possible for us and our guests. Amanda has a keen eye towards details, whether that is remembering our parents' likes and dislikes or what kind of decoration setups we want. Plus, she highlights all of our unique preferences, rather than filling a cookie-cutter wedding mold. On top of that, she is one of the kindest people we know, always making us feel heard and special. We feel so lucky to have Amanda Paige events working with us so that we can sit back and enjoy the most memorable day!

  • Amanda is amazing. She helped us put together a wedding in 4 weeks. She went above and beyond. The outcome was spectacular and the best part was she took care of everything. She picked up on who we were and our style immediately. She had everything planned in days. She was a soundboard when we could not make decisions. The day of the wedding she managed everything including making sure our family and friends were in the right place at the right time. We will be calling Amanda for our next event.

  • Amanda was an absolute delight to work with!! She was very responsive, kind, knowledgeable, and easy to work with from even just our first conversation. She made me feel like she really understand our vision. And man did she execute things perfectly!! She handled absolutely all of our decor, including custom cookies, napkins, signage, and water bottles. She was an absolute joy to work with on the day of as well. No request was too large!

  • Amanda did such an incredible job helping us to plan our wedding! She was there for us from day one, always checking in and available to give advice or answer questions at any time. She provided us early on with a detailed budget and timeline which were extremely helpful in keeping us on track during the planning process. Amanda was also wonderful the day of the wedding, helping to make sure everything was on track and doing a great job organizing our large family and wedding party. Above all, she is so genuine and truly wanted our wedding to be the best it could be! I would 100% recommend hiring Amanda to plan your event and will definitely use her help again in any other event I have!

  • Amanda is extremely professional! She helped me plan my son's rehearsal dinner for over 100 people. She worked with the restaurant ensuring an incredible meal within budget. She also did all the evites and kept track of the responses. She coordinated transportation for our out of town guests from the hotel to the restaurant and back. She decorated the tables beautifully and made the seating arrangement table to coordinate. She truly did an extraordinary job and will definitely use her again and highly recommend her! She’s personable and extremely caring and is very focused on details. Nothing was overlooked and the evening was spectacular.
