If the idea of being the go-to person on your wedding day sounds like a headache, you’ve come to the right place! Consider hiring a day-of coordinator. A day-of coordinator will answer any questions anyone has about your wedding day, on your wedding day. All in all, the goal is to make sure you’re unbothered and there to enjoy the day as the guests of honor, rather than the hosts!
Wedding Planner vs. Day-of-Coordinator
Wedding planners are a great choice if you have no idea where to begin with your wedding planning. If a wedding is something completely out of your comfort zone or you just frankly don’t have the time for it, we’re not afraid to say go for this route. They will hold your hand through every step along the way. From the very beginning of helping you envision the final product, going to vendor meetings with you, and finally to the day down the aisle!
That being said, avoid a wedding planner if you are a Type A person who already knows exactly what they want for their wedding day. If you have trouble giving tasks to other people and letting them have creative freedom, a day of coordinator is who you probably want to consider hiring.
What Is A Day-of Coordinator?
Unlike a wedding planner, a day-of coordinator will do most of their work for your wedding on the actual wedding day. They will be yours and everyone else’s go-to person for any questions they have. Of course, prior to the wedding, you’ll get to speak with your coordinator, but what will that communication look like?
What To Bring Up in Your Meeting
In order for your day-of coordinator to know how your wedding day will go, you’ll want to go over it in full detail.
Three months leading up to your wedding day, communication will open up to you and your day-of coordinator. This is when you want to give them a grand-scale idea of what your wedding day will look like. The vibes, the vision, etc.
During the week before your wedding, you’ll want to meet with your coordinator to go over your finalized wedding day’s timeline. Go over it from the morning to your final exit, the vendors involved, the times they are arriving, what decor they may need to set up, etc.
Your day-of coordinator will already have these questions during your meeting, so don’t worry if you forget some!
