Don't Let Your Hard Work Go to Waste
There's a lot of speculation around what exactly a wedding coordinator is.
You may be more familiar with the term "day-of coordinator", but really, day-of coordination isn't a thing.
No wedding coordinator can show up on your wedding day, with no previous work involved, & make sure your day runs smoothly.
But that's a post for another day.
Today I'm here to tell you why you need a wedding coordinator.
Let me preface with this:
~*someone*~ will be coordinating your wedding
Do you really want it to be one of your guests? Or, more importantly, you?
I didn't think so.
You need a wedding coordinator so:
- the biggest thing you have to worry about on your wedding day is how many slices of cake you can eat before your mother says something
- you can spend your day sipping old fashioneds instead of orchestrating vendors
- you can be practicing your vows instead of hunting down a lighter for the candles
- you don't have to stress out when your florist has accidentally brought five centerpieces instead of six
- you can walk down the aisle & not be cueing the bridal party or ceremony musicians
Most wedding coordinators will work with you for your rehearsal, formulate your timeline, act as your liaison between vendors & guests, & are generally there to serve you & your peace of mind.
Doesn't that sound great?!
Oh & real quick:
Wedding coordinator versus venue coordinator
I have worked with some amazing venue coordinators, but at the end of the day, the venue coordinator is there for the venue.
It is their job to ensure that the venue is prepped upon arrival & that it is not damaged after you leave.
Wedding coordinators, conversely, work for you & ensure that everything is running as it should be on your wedding day.
So get a damn coordinator, already.
Ready to take some stress off your day?
Need a wedding coordinator yourself?
