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.

I don’t think so! You don’t want to be stressed out about those little things on your big day. We are here to help you, so you and your family can relax and have a perfect time!

How and when did you start in the wedding industry?

When my sister got married, I thought how much I would enjoy helping others with their wedding days. I also saw how much stress it put on our family and my sister to have to deal with all the details on wedding day, setting up, keeping on schedule, contacting late vendors.  We did not get to enjoy the day as fully as we had hoped.  When I came across Lindsay’s training, I knew it was just what I needed to get started. I just went through the training about a year ago and started helping brides shortly after that.  It has been so fun and rewarding to help the brides on their big day.

Tell us about your experience as a wedding coordinator.

Wedding coordinating is such a rewarding job.  There is so much work that goes on behind the scene at a wedding, before the wedding and the day of.  The bride and groom and their families have spent so much time and money to make the perfect memories.  For me wedding coordinating is working hard for that bride to make sure everything runs smoothly, that everyone is on time, and everything is in place so that the bride, groom and their families can enjoy a stress-free day.  I love watching them fully enjoy their day and their visions come to life.

Tell us about a time when you helped the bride on her wedding day.

The most memorable time was actually the first wedding that I helped with.  The venue that we were at has a beautiful place for outside weddings, but the forecast was not in our favor.  We had decided to set up for an inside wedding.  About 30 minutes before wedding time, we saw a break in the rain so the bride asked if we could go with plan A, an outside wedding.  Of course.  Lindsay and I, along with some amazing help, kicked it into high gear and pulled off an amazing outside wedding.  Just as the bride had imagined.

What is your favorite part of wedding day?

My favorite part of wedding day is when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. This is such a special moment for them. This is what the day is all about, the love that they share for each other, and in that moment, that emotion and feeling really comes to life. The two get to take a moment together and enjoy each other.  We get to see them, in that moment be ‘them’, together, and enjoying the day.

Best Money Every Spent!

“I had already gotten the major things booked before hiring Veil Events, but knew that on the day of the wedding I would need help corralling my huge wedding party & family. I didn’t want to have to stress about things getting done & Veil Events seemed to be the right fit. I met with Lindsey & she gave me an overview of what a Day of Coordinator does & I wrote a check then & there. It was the best money I could have ever spent to have a worry free wedding day.  I went to the Veil Events Bridal Fair, which was a great way to meet different vendors & get ideas for my wedding day. The cake tasting was my favorite part! Closer to the wedding day Lindsay & Christie met with me a couple of times to make sure I was getting everything I needed done, knew what I wanted for decor, & anything they could assist with. On the day of, Christie was truly my rock who kept the whole day running flawlessly. I couldn’t imagine my wedding day without the support of Veil Events.
Christie worked her little tail off to make sure I didn’t worry about a thing. She met with me prior to the wedding to make sure I had everything in line.  She helped decorate the night before & morning of. She ran the rehearsal & made sure the wedding party knew what they were doing prior to the wedding. She was the contact person for the vendors, so I didn’t have to even think if they were even there. She made sure the day stayed on schedule & kept the wedding party where they were supposed to be. She got me anything I needed from a cup of water, a champagne bottle, to holding my train when we were taking pictures so I wouldn’t get it super dirty before I walked down the isle. She is the reason I didn’t have a single stress the day of my wedding & I got to just party with my friends & family!
The Wedding Planning Guide was GOLD!!! It had every possible to do check list which kept me organized while planning. I am a bit of a procrastinator, so it was nice to have a timeline of when to get things done. I put in all of my vendors & bridal party contact information which was super easy to refer to. In addition to having the guide, Lindsey would check in on me to make sure I was getting everything done & if she could be of any assistance to me with the planning process.” – Mrs. Lisa Schwarz Dinkel {Bride Wedding Date 9.14.2019} – Willows Bend Carbondale, KS 

Christie Explained The Benefits of First Look to My Stubborn Groom!

“Veil Events events helped from the first meeting. I was nervous about the wedding timeline and how to have the day go smoothly. Lindsay was as excited about our wedding as we were. She understood our vision, listened to us and made us feel like the most important couple. Lindsay explained the basic timeline and how to make the day perfect for us. She was able to explain the benefits of a first look to my stubborn groom and change his mind. This allowed us more time together on the day of the wedding.
Lindsay was always available for any questions I had as I was planning. Christie and Lindsay went to the vendor and caterer appointments with us. This allowed us all to be on the same page and I was relieved that they knew our vendors and trusted that they could work together to make our day perfect.

Christie is calm and professional. She was always in the background, taking care of me and the day. I don’t know what I would have done without Christie. I loved trusting that she was taking care of the little details and keeping the wedding moving so we could get to the party!

Christie really matched well with us and our bridal party. I’ve already recommended you and Christie to two friends with daughters getting married.

I also really liked the Wedding Planning Guide. It helped me think through the day and the details. The guide kept me on track and allowed me one place to keep track of vendors and details for the wedding.” – Mrs. Jana Tuttle Westhoff  {Bride Wedding Date 8.31.2019} – Maceli’s Banquet Hall | Lawrence, Ks
