You may already be familiar with the importance of a wedding planner, a vendor who helps you pull together all of the details of your big day, from tracking down the perfect china to ordering the flowers and booking the entertainment. But you may not be aware there’s another type of vendor who can help carry out your wedding day wishes. They are called “day of wedding” coordinators, and they’re here to help you!
So, what’s the difference between a day of wedding coordinator and a wedding planner? A wedding planner is involved in the architecture of your wedding, but may not be present on the actual wedding day, while a day of wedding coordinator is there only for the day of your wedding. This can help reduce costs, especially if you choose to plan the details of your big day yourself.
A day of wedding coordinator can help execute your wedding timeline, so that you can focus on getting married and enjoying your big day. A day of wedding coordinator can be responsible for checking in vendors, overseeing the decorations in your venue, making sure food and beverages are served on schedule, making sure the wedding party is prepared to walk down the aisle, and even getting your guests to put down their phone if their amateur photography is blocking the view of the photographer you’re paying to capture your wedding.
Another benefit of day of wedding coordinators includes the ability to put out fires as needed. Say your vendor gets lost, or simply doesn’t show. Your coordinator can handle the stress for you, without you ever realizing there was an issue. This service is invaluable to brides and grooms, as the last thing you need on your wedding day is the stress of tracking down vendors!
