1 : Choose a trusted family member, friend or coworker. Someone not already playing an integral role like a parent or bridesmaid. Parents should be available for emotional support and your bridal party to make certain you arrive on time!
2: Consider someone who shares your vision and you feel confident will carry out your desired wishes. Other beneficial attributes - extremely detailed oriented, adores a checklist, can remain cool headed and make quick, rational decisions on your behalf.
3: This individual should be available the week prior to attend any final meetings with your key suppliers (e.g. reception venue) and the wedding rehearsal too.
4: Planning to marry outdoors? Your coordinator will take charge and not hesitate in putting “Plan B” into effect should Mother Nature decide not to cooperate. Hot Tip: Plan B should be well thought out and discussed in advance to minimize unnecessary effort and frustration for all involved.
5: If you have exhausted all opportunities and simply cannot find the right person then strongly consider hiring a professional. If your budget is maxed out, reevaluate and make some slight adjustments such as forgoing the champagne toast or extra floral arrangements. You and your guests will not miss it!
A day-of wedding coordinator is like insurance – you question if you really need it but ever so thankful when you do! Let your carefully selected coordinator take charge so that you can focus on the more important aspects of the day – celebrating your happiness with your dearest family and friends.
