Wedding Specialists: Perfectly Planned by Amy



Chattanooga event and wedding planning has long been a dream for Amy Marcus. “As the wife of an Air Force Officer for 20 years with frequent and unpredictable moves, having a true career of my own wasn’t an option until a few years ago – but it did give me a tremendous amount of experience in event planning,” she explains. “Although it’s taken me a long time to get here, I’m convinced that my life’s journey has been leading me to this point.” Her business, Perfectly Planned by Amy, is the culmination of her hard work.

At Perfectly Planned by Amy, Amy and her team offer four main wedding planning packages: Day-of Coordination, Partial Planning + Day-of, Full Wedding Planning + Day-of, and a Micro Wedding package. They can also plan everything from proposals and elopements to bridal showers and bachelorette parties. Whether you hire Amy to assist with final preparations or coordinate all aspects of your wedding, you can expect a clear line of communication and a detail-oriented approach.

What Amy offers goes far beyond flawless execution, however. “A mother of the bride, Stacey Street, told me once that I do far more than plan, guide, and prepare – I create a personal connection,” she shares. “I always tell my brides that it’s like having another mom on-site who is the most organized person ever.”

Amy feels grateful to finally have the opportunity to pursue her passion: “to ensure my clients have a truly special and stress-free day that will be remembered fondly for the rest of their lives,” she says.

1. Before you start planning your wedding, set up a wedding email. This will allow you to keep all of your vendor emails, quotes, contracts, and payments in one place.

2. Don’t forget to eat and stay hydrated on your wedding day! Nothing is worse than feeling faint or hangry going into your wedding ceremony.

3. When all your guests are getting lined up for the exit, stay inside and do one last dance. You won’t regret it!
