Wedding planning can be stressful. We understand that, so at The Waters Point, we make sure to include a day-of coordinator in all of our packages. Here is a glimpse into what our coordinator can do for you!
It is your coordinator’s job is to make sure your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible so you can get hitched without a hitch! While you are the director of your wedding, a day-of coordinator acts as the stage manager – they make sure that everything is in its place and work behind the scenes so that the show can go on.
Your day-of coordinator will help you with the execution and scheduling of your wedding day so you can be present on your special day and enjoy every moment with family and friends. During your two planning meetings, your coordinator will give their expert guidance on how to make your big day as stress-free and enjoyable as possible for you and your guests. Your coordinator will create a timeline and two layouts (Plan A & Plan B) customized to meet your needs. After finalizing the timeline and layouts with you, they will reach out to all of your vendors to confirm arrival time on the day of your wedding.
The night before your wedding, they will run your ceremony rehearsal so everyone knows when and where to go during the ceremony. When the wedding day finally arrives, it’s all hands on deck as your lead coordinator directs staff and vendors to create the wedding of your dreams! Your coordinator will arrive to begin the setup of tables, chairs, decor, and so much more! Your timeline will allow for a smooth transition from setup to the ceremony and then on to the reception. All that is left for you to do is cut loose, have fun, and enjoy the beginning of your happily ever after!
Now that you have gotten to know what a day-of coordinator does, get the inside scoop with these three questions we asked our lead coordinator, Chelsea:
What is the most challenging part of planning a wedding?
I know that wedding planning can be very stressful for couples. My best piece of advice is to start your planning off by making a budget and a list of your priorities or must-haves. Base your budget off your priority list so you get the things that are most important to you.
What advice would you give to an anxious bride or groom?
Take a deep breath and remember the reason for your wedding day – you get to marry your best friend! Getting down the aisle puts you one step closer to that goal.
What do you love the most about your job?
My job is so rewarding because I get to be a small piece of the most important day of my couple’s lives. It is a day full of emotion for many people, and I have the privilege of helping that day go as perfectly as possible.
