You have spent months planning the wedding of your dreams and you should have the opportunity to experience it without worrying about what’s happening behind the scenes. A wedding coordinator is there to make sure you get exactly what you want. 

You may wonder, what exactly is a day-of wedding coordinator? A wedding coordinator joins your team of vendors in the month leading up to your wedding, focusing on organization and logistics such as timeline, vendor communication, and a contingency plan for the big day.

A Wedding Coordinator is one of the most important vendors you’ll hire. Here is why:

You want to enjoy your wedding day, not work it.

On your wedding day, you do not want to be worrying about centerpieces, table settings , etc. You want an expert who can handle any situation without having to interrupt you while you dance with your best friend. It takes a specific skill set to handle every single detail of a wedding day. 

A wedding needs a contact person for endless questions and last-minute decisions. A wedding without a wedding coordinator, the contact person becomes the bride. How stressful. 

You need a realistic timeline.

A wedding coordinator will work with you to organize all the moments of your big day while making sure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes. 

The average wedding venue gives you about five hours for your event. While that may seem like a lot of time, it goes by quickly and there is a lot to fit in those five hours – grand entrances, dances, cake cutting, pictures, and so much more. 

A Wedding Coordinator will plan for every aspect of your day so that no detail is forgotten.

You need a contingency plan.

You want someone who will be able to handle last-minute changes and who can work under pressure.  

What if your cake falls or your caterer does not show up at the right time? Is that how you want to remember your wedding day? Of course not, you want to have the freedom to enjoy, relax and spend time with your loved ones.

An experienced Wedding Coordinator will be able to handle each and every situation while knowing your preferences and making sure it aligns with your vision. The peace of mind a coordinator brings is worth every penny. 

Plan ahead and get the help you need for your wedding day.
