You might be asking yourself, “Do I need a day-of coordinator?” You’ve been planning and researching and imagining this perfect day forever! You’ve got it, right? Well, not quite. Let’s think through your big day.
What does a day-of coordinator do?
You and your girls arrived at 9 am to get started in hair and makeup. You’ve had a day of lounging, getting made up, and a few mimosas! You’re getting dressed in your perfect, white dress as your phone rings. Your baker has arrived and wants to know where to put the cake! You walk out to make sure the cake goes in the right spot, and your maid of honor follows you still buttoning up your dress. Your florist then walks in and wants to know where the flowers go. Next thing you know, you’re running late for your first look and honestly, you’re slightly frazzled!
Now, let’s try that again! You’ve met with your day-of coordinator months prior to your wedding. You’ve given them the run down on how you want everything! You’ve discussed all of your plans, and given them all the diagrams and phone numbers. Now, you arrive on site for your wedding day. Then your phone rings. This time you’re prepared and ask your coordinator to go show the baker where the cake goes. For the rest of the evening, you get to enjoy dancing with your groom, eating cake, and catching up with your guests! Before you know it, the night is over and you haven’t worried about a thing!
Which of the two scenarios would you prefer? A frazzled night where you’re scrambling around making sure everything is perfect? Or a beautiful night where you enjoyed yourself, relaxed, and were the life of the party? I know exactly which one I would choose! You’re choosing to enjoy your wedding the way you should when you hire a day-of coordinator!
To sum it up
Day of coordinators are responsible for helping keep your wedding ceremony and reception running on time. They’re the ones to tell your bridal party when to walk down the aisle and where to stand. They’ll help coordinate your reception entrances and dances, and make sure everyone knows what is going on and when. They will be the ones to make sure you’re ready to cut the cake and have some fun with the bouquet and garter toss! They’ll also line up your bridal party and guests for the grand exit! Whether your ceremony is going to a formal one or not, do yourself a favor and rely on someone else to make sure your big day runs smoothly! Enjoy it and make memories that you’ll cherish forever!
