Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it essential to have a “Day or Month-Of” coordinator?
I believe every bride should have at least a Day-Of or Month-Of wedding coordinator. This ensures that all the planning you have put into your big day gets executed properly. Hiring a coordinator can also be a gift to your family. They will be the ones dealing with last minute issues that arise, set up/clean up and many other details if a coordinator isn’t present. They are some of the most important guests at your wedding and a coordinator ensures your family enjoys this memorable day just as much as you do.
Can I afford a coordinator?
You can’t afford NOT to have one. It’s important to include a coordinator into you wedding budget instead of seeing them as an added expense. Many times, a coordinator can save you money with great vendor referrals and knowing budget essentials. Also, having peace of mind and knowing everything is being taken care of on your wedding day is priceless.
What services does a Wedding Coordinator Offer?
You can hire a wedding coordinator to assist you with ANY and ALL wedding needs.
Consulting services would include giving advice on etiquette/scheduling, budget management, referring reputable vendors, research and more. Nobody expects a bride to know how to line up a bridal party for a processional, what to be aware of when signing vendor contracts, how to address invitations and so much more. This is great for a bride who wants to tap into some professional wedding knowledge without having to do all the research.
Day-Of and Month-Of Coordination includes finalizing details, creating your timeline, running your rehearsal and doing everything you need on the day of the wedding. This includes being your liaison between you and your vendor team to ensure your ideas are carried out. This is perfect for a DIY bride who has worked meticulously on plans, but needs a coordinator to execute them smoothly.
If you need a little more assistance along the way, a coordinator can do venue inspections, attend meetings with or for you, negotiate vendor contracts, select décor, design the perfect venue layout, book hotels for out-of-town guests, manage RSVP’s and the list goes on.
