Should I Hire a Wedding Coordinator?


Are you wondering if you should hire a wedding coordinator for your wedding? Do you think that you have the time, tools, and abilities to plan and organize every detail? It could be doable as a couple to maybe plan out all the details, but it could come with stress and unnecessary worry.

There are so many reasons why we think you should book coordination with Complete. From organizing all the details so you don’t have to, to problem solving on the go. A coordinator will bring some confidence and ease to the day of your wedding!

Should I Hire a Wedding Coordinator in Central Illinois?


In many cases, there are small “emergencies” at every wedding. Imagine you are about to walk down the aisle and one of the bridesmaids accidentally steps on your dress and leaves a stain. Well, a coordinator will have stain remover to get rid of that stain ASAP. Picture this scenario, a flower girl is nowhere to be found and you are about to walk down the aisle. The coordinator will track down the flower girl and make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. There are several different types of “small emergencies” but that is the coordinator’s job to handle them, not yours. Having them there relieves the stress and responsibility on you so that you can worry about walking down the aisle to marry the love of your life!

Vendor Coordination

Coordinators will call, email, text, and begin communicating with all vendors prior to the event. They will coordinate with other vendors and not only introduce themselves but start formulating a timeline. After the finalizing of the timeline happens, you will see that there is not a minute uncounted for on your schedule. This timeline will include the time that all vendors arrive at the venue and a timeline for the bridal party to follow throughout the day. This timeline will only set you and all the vendors up for success. All of this will give you a sense that everything has time to happen, and organized with ease!

Wedding Coordinator Day Of Duties


Many times the coordinator will be onsite overseeing the setting up. It is the coordinator’s job to fix any of the decors that is not placed correctly. This requires an in-depth meeting with your coordinator. They will find out what you are bringing, what any decor vendors are bringing, and the placement of every single decor item. Now I know that is not something you want to worry about on your big day.

Time Keeper

The official term we like to call a Coordinators is timekeeper. Sure, all weddings and events get a little bit off track in terms of timing. This is why we create timelines.

As I mentioned before, coordinators create the timelines. Believe it or not, no matter how organized you are, things can still go array the day of the wedding. Having a coordinator to help with those things is key. You should be enjoying the lovely company of the guests that decided to celebrate this special day with you. You spent hours upon hours envisioning and bringing your dreams to life. This is your time to enjoy that day. Allow yourself the luxury of having a coordinator.
