About Simple Day
Simple Day is a wedding planning company created for couples who think less is more. A simple wedding day can be classic, modern, elegant, rustic, traditional, off beat, or anything in between. It’s a day that’s been edited and refined to keep the focus on what it’s all about: celebrating your unique love.
We’re here to help you make thoughtful decisions efficiently. We’ll pull you back from the rabbit hole of invitation wording and seating charts. 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, and thanks for stopping by! I’m Amanda Buchanan, the founder, owner, and lead planner at Simple Day. I started Simple Day when I realized that not only was I becoming less and less inspired by huge, over-the-top weddings, but so were many of my clients.
Instead of contributing to the pressure being put on couples to keep up with their engaged and recently-married friends, I wanted to help create the right kind of narrative for modern couples to feel comfortable 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.
I have over ten years of experience as a wedding and event planner. I’ve done everything from destination weddings on the beach to large scale corporate events in our nation’s capital. Shifting my focus to smaller, more intimate affairs has been the most rewarding business decision I’ve ever made, and I can’t wait for you and your partner to join me on this journey!
