1. The set up
Ever wonder how everything is magically set up by the time you start walking down the isle? From chairs, to tents, and centerpeices...your wedding planner takes on the duties of delegating and assisting in setting up your ceremony and reception. Sure, it would seem simple to rely on your family or friends to do it but wouldn’t you want them to enjoy the day as well? Hiring a wedding planner relieves the stress of having to worry about what your ceremony or reception will look like. You give them the vision and they execute.
The coordination of vendors is the key to a successful event. A wedding coordinator is your point of contact for all of your vendors. They communicate with vendors at least a few days prior to your wedding day as well as the day of to delegate and confirm details. Depending on your needs, a coordinator may send you a preferred vendors list. Your coordinator will maintain communication with your vendors throughout the day ensuring that they are completing their responsibilities as well as following up to see if they need anything. Communication with your vendors at this point becomes your coordinators responsibility.
3. Advice and direction
Believe it or not, your coordinator has heard it all. There is no such thing as a stupid question. Your coordinator is there to help you with any of your wedding needs. If you don’t know what to say when you’re standing up at the alter we’ll be sure we print out a script for you so you have what you need. If you tell us that you need help with an idea or if you’re in debate on which vendor you should hire, we will give you our most honest opinion so that you are satisfied on your big day. FYI providing you with advice is literally part of our job description.
Take a breath and relax. You hired a coordinator so that you don’t need to worry about a thing. A coordinator is there to guide your day and have it run as smooth as possible. Kick back with your bridesmaids and focus on your new journey ahead of you! After all, we coordinators take your stress and put it amongst ourselves so that you can remain smiley in all of your photos. Here’s to no stress and kicking your heels off at the end of the night :)
