The Bride hired you for your advice and ideas. You’re the wedding expert, so show off your thoughts and ideas. Being creative allows you to stand out and helps you think of ideas and solutions the bride and family didn’t think of.
THINK ON YOUR FEET AND TAKE ON A CHALLENGE:

Be prepared and know that whatever decision you make is the right one and stick with it. Your display of confidence can, and will, bring about a sense of calm for your bride.

Being on your feet all day can be hard on your body. The bride shouldn’t have to wait on her Wedding Coordinator to take a break because her feet hurt! Get good shoes, drink lots of water and always have a quick snack nearby to give you an energy boost throughout the day.
