Day Coordination

Here’s what a month-of coordinator will most likely help you with 30 days before your wedding day:

  • Preview the wedding and reception site
  • Introduce you to trustworthy wedding vendors and venues
  • Help with vendor negotiation
  • Serve as point person for every vendor (so you don’t have to)
  • Help direct your wedding rehearsal

On your wedding day we generally will:

  • Help organize and space the processional line-up
  • Greet guests and/or supervise your ushers
  • Help pin boutonnières and corsages
  • Gather and distribute ceremony items at the site
  • Ensure setup and décor for ceremony & reception are correct
  • Serve as last-minute point person with vendors
  • Verify that small things like favors and place cards receive proper placement
  • Light any candles
  • Confirm set up of the guest book, gift table, cake table, and rentals
  • Direct events to keep the wedding flowing smoothly and on schedule
  • Assist with guest management
  • Determine who will be responsible for getting gifts from reception to final destination
  • Respond to any last-minute emergencies or changes

Full Planning

A full-service wedding planner will do much more. Here’s a short list:

  • Consult with you to understand and help shape your overall plan, sometimes including the rehearsal dinner, bridesmaid parties, day-after brunches, and other wedding-related events
  • Help you review your budget
  • Get to know your taste in style, colors, & the feel you want for your wedding
  • Give you regular progress updates
  • Create & review vendor contracts
  • Help you with your wedding day timeline
  • Organize vendor arrivals & deliveries to your venues
  • Avoid expensive mistakes like rush shipping or other changes
  • Be your “personal assistant” of sorts & remind you of obligations, appointments, budget, etc.
  • Help with style ideas & current trends
  • Pull things together for a unified look
  • Be your watchdog for any details you might miss
  • Manage almost all of the following: florist, caterer, invitations, musicians, site decor and more
  • Help you choose wedding party fashion inc. bridesmaid dresses, your gown, possibly your mother’s dresses, and groom & groomsmen attire
  • Help you find stylish favors
  • Suggest ideas for table design, special lighting & other esthetic details
