About Amanda Buchanan & Simple Day

I believe that every wedding is an opportunity to spread love by celebrating the couple and their story.Whether you have two years to plan your perfect intimate ceremony, or two weeks to pull together a pop up wedding, Simple Day can help you create a memorable day full of joy and romance.

Hello! I’m Amanda Buchanan, the owner and lead coordinator at Simple Day. I have over ten years of experience as an event coordinator and North Carolina wedding planner. I’ve done everything from destination beach weddings, to large scale corporate events in our nation’s capital.

Over the years, I noticed that not only was I becoming uninspired with big, over the top weddings, but so were my clients. I wanted to help change the industry narrative. Couples should feel comfortable (not judged for) taking a more minimalistic approach to wedding planning. Nobody should feel like they are sacrificing any part of themselves during this process, and I love helping couples put together a day that truly reflects their individual styles and personalities.

Shifting my focus to smaller, more intimate affairs has been the most rewarding business decision I’ve ever made. I can’t wait to join you and your partner on your wedding planning journey! Once you contact me, we’ll schedule a time to meet up and get to know each other over coffee. And please know that ALL types of couples are welcome here! Love is love. ♥

What our couples say

Our wedding day was simply perfect. Every detail was exactly how we imagined it or better but none of that would have been possible without Amanda. From the very first phone call, Amanda made us feel comfortable and at ease. She made everything easy with her client portal, her day of timeline, working directly with our vendors and locations, and being completely accessible for every nervous bride phone call and text I made! Amanda was the key to our wedding and we are beyond thankful for all of her help and guidance through the most perfect day of our lives! She is simply the best in the business!

Amanda was PERFECTION and then some as my day of coordinator! Simple Day matched my vision for my wedding perfectly- simple, budget friendly, yet still BEAUTIFUL. This is what I described to Amanda during our first consultation and she more than delivered. As my day of coordinator she made herself available to me well before my big day. She and I had our initial meeting at my venue where we discussed my vision and expectations, walked the space, and planned for our next meeting date to to give her my decor items. From there she helped me make my linen orders and gladly answered any questions I had up until my wedding day. By the week of, she had taken over all communications with my vendors. My wedding day was perfect, beautiful, and ran seamlessly. Amanda had everything to do with that. She was literally on top of every detail. Any time a card was placed in my or my husband’s hand she swooped in out of nowhere to make sure it got to our card box lol. From bustle emergencies to keeping everything on schedule and flowing smoothly, Amanda was the perfect addition to our big day. I literally felt no stress on the day of and I’m forever grateful to her for that. If you’re looking for a EXQUISITELY simple event, Simple Day is the planning service you’ll find!

Amanda was without a doubt the greatest reason why our day came together so perfectly. She was there every step of the way offering advice, answering questions and putting our minds at ease. She was a great advocate for both of us. And she stayed true to our vision the day of our wedding. There is no doubt in our minds that anyone would be less than completely satisfied to work with her. Thank you Simple Day!

Where do I even begin?! AMANDA IS THE MOST AMAZING PERSON EVER! Not only is she an amazing wedding planner, but she is just an all together incredible person. She made the planning process a complete breeze and made sure everyone and thing was in line. She is definitely a bride’s advocate, and I’m sure without her, things would not have gone as smoothly as they did. She will do whatever it takes to make sure your vision is seen through to the end! And, in the end, you will end up with a friend as well, which is always an added bonus!!! I could go on and on and on about how amazing she is, but find out for yourself, you’ll never regret it!
