Wedding Tip Wednesday: Do You Really Need a Wedding Coordinator?
The answer is YES! Planning an entire wedding without the help, expertise, and money saving tips from a full scale wedding planner is stressful enough; so at the very least, hire a "Day Of" wedding coordinator - someone who is able to handle the intricate details and stresses of the actual wedding day so that you can releax and enjoy being the bride. Your peace of mind and enjoyment of the celebration will be worth every penny!
You want to shine on your special day and look radiant and relaxed, not scramble when a vendor runs late or have to hunt down a bridesmaid who goes missing seconds before the wedding march begins to play.
A lot of Brides say "I'll just have my Maid of Honor handle it or my bridesmaid, but there are so many things that can go wrong during or before a wedding that an untrained individual wouldn't know how to handle - for instance if your baker brings the wrong cake, your bridesmaid probably wouldn't even realize it, she's never even seen the cake before today or do you really want your Maid of Honor setting up your reception tables or your sweetheart and cake table when she's supposed to be getting her hair and make up done? (Download our "Why Hire a Wedding Planner?" PDF here to read more and learn the differences etween a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator.).
A Day of Coordinator takes the planning you've already done and executes it with ease and experience while you relax and play "Super Star" to your family and friends and enjoy being photographed looking pretty all day. Day of Coordinators will create a wedding day timeline, set-up your ceremony and reception, keep you on schedule, manage your vendors and bridal party, cue your services, and much much more! They become an invaluable necessity as they do the work of more than 5 or 6 different vendors on the big day: making sure your hair, make up and style is just right for the photos, making sure you haven't forgotten to eat or drink something during the hectic day, handling any mishaps that might occur with your venue, florist, baker, or other vendors, and of course making sure your ceremony and reception have everything needed to be perfect.
