What is a Wedding Coordinator and Why You Need One!
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
When it comes to your wedding, its understandable that you would want to be in total control. You and your partner have spent c o u n t l e s s hours dreaming and planning the big day-- how do you possibly leave the execution to someone else. But think about it: Do you really want to be the point of contact for your caterer who is running late? GIRL, YOU DON'T NEED THAT STRESS!! Those little details go a long way during your wedding but looking out for them can take away the enjoyment of what should be one of the best. days. of. your. life.
Enter Wedding Coordinator. Different than a wedding planner who helps design, budget, style and plan the wedding start to finish, a wedding coordinator offers day-of packages perfect for the bride who wants to plan her wedding but needs help with the execution. Wedding coordinators work with you to take care of smaller details leading up to the wedding and run the show on the big day. They make sure you're asking the right questions to your vendors, they make sure details (that you might not have even thought about) aren't falling through the cracks, they can help with last minute vendor issues, they can run errands if needed, they can assist with place card settings, they make sure everything is accounted for at the end of the night and they can help you designate specific tasks that might need the assistance of a friend or family member. Hiring a wedding coordinator might just be the best money you spend on your wedding.
From managing the timeline to making sure all your vendors are accounted for, a wedding coordinator allows you to have time to enjoy yourself and worry only about walking down the aisle to say 'I DO'
Most importantly, it allows you to be present at your own wedding AND allows your family + friends to be present too. Your mom, your best friends, your sisters... they should be right there with you soaking up every magical second and not worrying about what's up next on the timeline.
