Day of Coordination Services:

Unlike a wedding planner, a Day of Coordinator is for brides and grooms who want to do most of the initial planning themselves, but when their wedding day arrives, they want a professional there to make sure the day goes smoothly. A coordinator’s job is to always be thinking one step ahead of what’s actually happening, so the day runs smoothly.

Too often, brides rely on family and friends to help carry out plans on the day of their wedding. By asking a friend or family member to take on this stressful task, that person will not be able to enjoy the event as a guest.

Why Do you need a wedding coordinator?

When you picture your wedding day, do you picture any of these things…

  • You and your bridesmaids lighting candles.
  • Telling the Ushers to start seating your guest.
  • Helping your 3 year old flower girl get down the aisle right before YOU do.
  • Making sure your Photo Booth is set up in the right corner of the venue.
  • Restocking your candy bar at 9pm.

Veil Events Wedding Coordinator

Why is it important for a bride to hire a wedding coordinator?
The day of your wedding should be one of the best days of your life and if you have vendors or friends “bugging” you then you get sidetracked and don’t get to enjoy the day. If you are worried about your groom or the groomsmen then you don’t get to relax with your girls. This is were a wedding coordinator can come to the rescue! We provide peace of mind! We take care of all the details of the day and make sure everything gets done and goes off without a hitch. We take the stress away from you and/or mothers so you can focus on what you came there to do…get married and have an epic party!

 

How and when did you start in the wedding industry?
I interned with Lindsay Kooser at the bridal fair for the first time in January 2014, then coordinated my first wedding that May. Lindsay taught me first hand how to handle all the details leading up to and on wedding day.

 

Tell us about your experience as a wedding coordinator.
I have handled larger and smaller weddings. I have come across mothers who need some “soothing” and some brides that need some one to hide their alcohol because of a secret pregnancy. I have done things as simple as lighting candles to running and adding more tables and chairs last minute because more guests showed up than had RSVPd.

 

Tell us about a time when you helped the bride on her wedding day.
As mentioned I had a bride that had just found out she was pregnant no one but the groom knew about it. All day she felt nauseous and not feeling 100%. I helped her when she needed to secretly use the restroom and when she was handed alcoholic beverages, I took them and switched them out for her before anyone noticed. It was challenging but rewarding when at the end of the night she gave me the biggest hug and said, “you have no idea how grateful I am! You are a live saver!”

 

What is your favorite part of wedding day?
Getting the bride to the location for the first look. The nerves and excitement is off the charts! Whether that first look is with her dad or her groom. Whether it is a planned time before the ceremony or when the doors open at the back of the church/venue. It is always so special!
