Why do you need a planner or coordinator?
Whether you’re getting married on your parents’ property or juggling two big city venues for ceremony and reception (and regardless of your guest count!), you need a wedding planner and / or day-of coordinator!
Family (and you!) should be enjoying the day, not stressing. Consider me your confidante and problem-solver. I work with the bride and groom, as well as their families and bridal parties to make sure everyone is taken care of, lined up before the ceremony, and that all of the precious family details find a home. Your mom shouldn’t be the one coordinating with the caterer to make sure dinner comes out right at seven o’clock.
You probably have quite a few vendors and / or friends working your day. If someone is running late, can’t find where you’re getting ready, or wants to talk through the timeline the day before your wedding, they should have a designated contact whose sole job is to champion the details of your big day. I work seamlessly with everyone from your venue coordinator to confirm that your tables are set up exactly as you envision them, to your MOH or Best Man, handing them a microphone for their perfect speech.
I’m a professional - this is my passion, but also my job. I have expertise working with weddings and events of all shapes and sizes, and I’ll be able to spot problems and anticipate questions before they ever get to you. I customize a detailed timeline for each couple, sharing it with vendors a few weeks before your wedding so that all details can be ironed out before the big day even begins!
Let other vendors focus on their expertise. Photographers and caterers have seen it all, but wouldn’t you rather they focus on getting the perfect shot of you and your dad walking down the aisle, or organizing staff so all of your food comes out piping hot instead of constantly checking and re-working the timeline day-of? I work directly with all of your other vendors so that their needs are met, while staying true to your preferences.
I want you to be present on your wedding day. No matter how much of a planner you are, you should be able to hand off your phone and all of the responsibilities to your coordinator - you only get this day and these moments once. Soak them in, and let me make sure the logistics are flawless.
