Wedding Day Management ("Day of" Coordination) -
You've planned all of the details of your wedding, pinned to countless Pinterest boards in hopes of creating the wedding look of your dreams, and worked endless hours making sure the seating chart is just right. Now who will be the one to make sure all of the details, logistics, and timelines run like clockwork? Who will be there to greet the vendors, run the ceremony procession, set up the escort cards, cake table, and add those final touches that are oh so important to your big day?... Enter your personal Wedding Management Team and Day of Coordinator! Unlike a full-service wedding planner, a “Day-of” Coordinator is for brides and grooms who have done all of the planning themselves, but need an experienced and talented professional to execute all of their hard work and details on the day of their wedding.
All too often brides rely on family and friends to help take on the important element of pulling everything together on the day of the wedding, but this becomes a stressful task for a non experienced professional and that person (or persons) won't be able to enjoy the event as a guest, and will end up feeling like “event staff.” In most cases, your “volunteers” have little experience in coordinating a wedding from start to finish and they often end up feeling overwhelmed, miss important details, and become frustrated as they try to keep on top of everything that must be done to ensure that the day runs smoothly.
Coordinating a wedding involves MANY important details. It takes an experienced wedding event manager and at least one (or more) assistant to successfully manage the timing, pay keen attention to every detail, and have the knowledge and ability to handle any issue or problem that may happen on the wedding day (i.e., we know what to do if the cake delivery is late, the best man forgot the rings, or the weather doesn't cooperate). You want your wedding day to run smoothly for you AND your guests, and having a professional wedding coordinator and wedding day management team is the only way to make that happen!
At Dolce Vita Events, Wedding Day Management (also known as "Day Of" coordination) is one of our signature and most popular services. That's because we are experts at event management, and managing your wedding is no different to us than managing the event details of a large scale, high profile event. We bring our expertise and successful event management process cultivated by over 15 years of experience to YOUR wedding day in the same way we handle high profile red carpet events. (We have produced events such as The Elton John Oscar Party, Us Weekly, and Vanity Fair Oscar and Golden Globe After Parties, and more! ) Principal Planner Priscilla Nakane and her staff pay keen attention to every element and can seamlessly coordinate the most intricate of details to ensure the flawless execution and flow of your wedding day.
Your Wedding, Your Way...expertly managed and executed by us:
Contrary to it's title, "Day of" Coordination doesnt just start on the day of your wedding. This is why we choose to describe it as "Wedding Day Management" as we are hired to manage the important details of your wedding. Dolce Vita Events begins to work with our wedding management ("Day of") clients 30 days prior to the big day so that we are kept abreast of all the details you have already planned, the vendors you have already hired, and the vision you have already created for your special day. From this point on, you will keep us informed of any details or changes that happen up until the wedding day. At two weeks before your wedding, we then take over all communication and correspondence with vendors and act as your representative for any final correspondence and confirmations, and we implement the delivery schedules and last minute details so that you can take the last two weeks to enjoy the final stretch of your journey to "I Do" without the overwhelming stress of doing it all on your own.
We coordinate and run the wedding rehearsal, prepare the event timeline, distribute and confirm the timeline and delivery schedule with all of your other vendors, and present you with a final detailed event summary and agenda so that you can rest assured that everything has been accounted for. This is what we do, and so much more. In the same way that you have spent countless hours in planning your wedding on your own, we have spent countless hours cultivating our wedding day management process, through years of experience, a wide variety of wedding styles and scenarios, a beautifully diverse group of wedding clients, and numerous accredidations and industry awards that reflect our skill and commitment to bringing the best experience and success to your wedding day.
So while "Day Of" coordination is really a month long working relationship with us, you will be happy you made it the most important investment in the success of your special day! Whether a rustic wedding, elegant soiree, or glamorous Gatsby inspired theme, trust that your wedding will be your perfect dream day come true when you hire Dolce Vita Events to orchestrate and mange the process and production of your special day! Customized service packages are available as Dolce Vita Event offers service plans to fit every need and budget.
