We know what you are thinking… “We can save money by planning the wedding ourselves.” Let us stop you right there! Yes, you can save money by planning the wedding yourselves, but have you thought about who will actually control the overall flow of the event once the big day finally arrives? We bet we know what you’re thinking next… “I could have one of my friends, or a bridesmaid, or even my 2nd Aunt twice removed help run things.” Let’s be honest, it’s not very considerate, nor smart, for you to ask one of your guests to run the entire wedding day. They will want to enjoy this special day with you and this is a lot of pressure for someone with no experience.
Everything that goes into executing a wedding should be left to a professional: A Day-of Wedding Coordinator.
What does the day-of wedding coordinator actually do, you ask?
Well, let’s start from the top.
Six weeks prior to your wedding, your coordinator will prepare an accurate and realistic timeline. They will also help personalize a layout that best fits your vision and venue. These will then be sent to all the vendors for review. Your coordinator will also manage all or your wedding rentals, which will save you time, money and a splitting headache! The day prior to your event, your coordinator will attend your rehearsal and will conduct a few run-throughs to make sure you and your wedding party are prepared and ready for the real deal. Most importantly, you can wake up on your wedding day feeling at ease knowing that you will not have to deal with any unexpected issues that may occur, as oft is the case with so many moving parts. You can feel confident knowing that you and your guests will experience a wedding that runs smoothly and effortlessly.
Your coordinator will be the go to person for all vendors and will have back up plans and quick solutions for any wedding day mishaps. They will generate the overall flow of your timeline and make sure all of your vendors are working together as a team. They will also set out all your personal décor to make sure your wedding day, something you’ve always envisioned, comes to life!
Do yourself a favor and book your Day-of Wedding Coordinator before it’s too late.
The money is well worth it, and we can assure you that this is something you won’t regret.
