A Bit About ‘Day Of’ Coordination Services
The ‘Day of’ Coordination services that I offer are different than many. ‘Day of’ Coordination is really a misnomer. It’s more ‘Month of’ Coordination as we begin meeting one month before your wedding day. I like to meet 3-4 times, generally once per week, until the wedding. I work with your schedule, as in I will fit in with your schedule however is convenient for you. In order to be of adequate assistance and benefit to you, I need to be completely informed of all wedding details. Our meetings will consist of a general review of all your plans for both the ceremony and reception. Many couples find this review time beneficial as we make sure all details have been covered and nothing forgotten.
One of our meetings will consist of touring your venue together, so I can draw up a floor plan and know exactly how you want everything set up on your wedding day. Table arrangements, centerpieces, sweetheart and cake table details, etc. Another meeting will consist of creating the time schedule for the wedding. I will make sure we keep on schedule during the event, and that we will do things in the order you desire. I also create individual schedules for involved parties and vendors. I usually like to meet once more the week of the wedding just so we can confirm all details and put to rest any of your last minute worries, so you may truly enjoy the days leading up to your wedding!
You will have myself and two assistants on the day before and the day of your wedding day. The day before I like to accomplish anything that can be done a day early: decorating, favor prep, flower arranging, set up, picking up rental items, etc. , and most importantly: the ceremony rehearsal. This is a very important aspect of the wedding and I would be happy to coordinate it for you.
I have found that the above system works ideally for executing a wedding not planned by me originally. Occasionally, people ask if they can just have me the day of the wedding and that’s it. I have found that I am of best use to you when I am fully informed on the details. And showing up just the day of the wedding is not enough. To truly allow you to relax and enjoy your wedding day, and facilitate a smooth, enjoyable evening for your guests, I need more time with you prior to the wedding.
Every wedding deserves a Day of Coordinator and a chance for the Bride and Groom, and their family and friends, to relax and enjoy the wedding day! Contact me with any questions you may have or to set up a free consultation. Hope to talk to you soon!
