Wedding days are such beautiful opportunities for forever memories – of course for the couple, but also for the bride and her mom, posse of friends and family.  It is the perfect time to gather in a beautiful venue, laugh, reminisce and dream of days to come as they spend this day preparing for the big event.

In these days of DIY, Pinterest and YouTube, many creative brides and crew have the opportunity to showcase the bride’s unique style as she crafts her wedding day, from romantic flowers, to stand-out signs, to desired decor and fabulous food.  The planning process is significant and the amount of coordination astounding.  Even the most amazing planning process is a whirlwind of fun involving much time and will be complemented by skilled coordination at the event.

The most detailed wedding plan needs a person to pull together all the day’s intricacies on a day that should be about the relationships of those participating in their dream day.  Brides and their maids and mamas should have time for hair, make up and mimosas without having to be consumed with the final day of details.

A Day of Coordinator is an essential element and will keep all parts moving smoothly throughout the event.  The coordinator’s job may include:

1.) Harmonize the details and moving parts of the wedding day, while keeping the stress off both the bride and her guests.

2.) Check in on vendors ensuring they are on time.

3.) Work with the venue if there are needs for ladders, extension cords, etc.

4.) Assist the photographer by running down family or party members and/or props, etc.

5.) Make small last-minute decisions.

6.)  Pass out final payments to vendors.

7.) Taking care a slew of details that need not to be on the bride or her crowd.

8.) Keeping the event on schedule, starting the ceremony in a timely way, lining up the bridal party and seamlessly help with crowd control.

9.) Available to assist not only the photographer but all other vendors – answering questions and providing direction.

A Coordinator is there to assist the bride on this magical day. Let them handle the stress, while the bride and groom and their guests create cherished memories. Engaging the services of a Wedding Coordinator is a wise investment.
