My job as your day-of-coordinator looks like this:
You download all of your thoughts, concerns, hopes, and plans for the day to me, and then I make sure your day happens... the way you want it to!
As a bride, I want you to so delight in your wedding day. That means not worrying about the problems that are sure to arise. If you give me your vision, then I can be your brain and put out all of the inevitable fires while you sit pretty with a mimosa. Sounds amazing, right?
Practically speaking, here's what I offer as a day-of-coordinator:
Communicating with bridal party and families, ensuring everyone is where they need to be for pictures, hairdressers, make-up, etc.
Assistance with setup and teardown before, before, during and after the event.
Coordination with vendors as they begin to drop off florals, food, decor, etc. I will also work with the DJ/Band, officiant, caterers and any other applicable vendors.
Ensuring the decor and florals actually look how the bride wants them to, and working with the vendors to fix things as needed.
Coordination at the rehearsal. I work with the bridal party on timing, orientation, flow, etc. I will also typically stand with flower girls/ring bearers to help them with timing.
Coordination rates start at $600 and go up based on the specific needs of the bride.
-Assistance with the Rehearsal, and a half day of assistance on the day-of (typically about 8 hours).
-Includes: set-up/design assistance, assistance with transitions, communication with vendors, family and bridal party, and tear-down. Specific duties are limited to the time frame of the coordinator on the day-of.
Please inquire about more extensive coordinations!
