Do I Really Need a Day of Coordinator?
Planning a wedding can be a time consuming and stressful experience. You’re selecting, ordering, tasting and more. Yes, you may be a well-planned and organized bride-to-be, with every aspect well thought-out, but even you can get overwhelmed as the final day draws near.
Time and time again, we see many brides that get wrapped up in the everyday planning process, forgetting just how enjoyable that special day and the days leading up to really should be.
Every bride should have that opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of their labor. You shouldn’t be up first thing the day of your wedding decorating the venue, tracking down vendors or helping your bridesmaids. Nor during your reception should you be searching for your photographer to take that perfect photo of you and your handsome groom or tell the disk jockey he is playing the WRONG song for that special moment you will never be able to recreate.
For those very reasons, and truly believing that every bride should have a memorable experience, is why we can never stress enough the value in securing a Day of Coordinator for your wedding day. A Day of Coordinator is tasked with making sure your day goes according to plan. Without even a mention to you, any hiccup will be managed, solved, or corrected.
The venue you select may have an onsite event coordinator, but such coordinators offer a different range of services than your chosen wedding professional. Specifically your wedding coordinator is working for you, not venue. Your coordinator is there to see that your wishes and requests are carried out as well as to assist in planning that is not related to the venue. While working with the venue staff, your coordinator, will have your best interest at hand and provide you all the peace of mind.
Most to keep in mind, you cannot be in two places at one time and neither should any of your friends or family. So sit back, laugh, smile and enjoy, knowing that things will be just the way you planned.
