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!

Meet Jaclyn Lawson

Jaclyn Lawson |  Olathe, Kansas
Veil Events Wedding Coordinator

Hello, I’m Jaclyn!
I live in Olathe, KS, with my husband Kevin and two beautiful daughters: Kaylee, 4, and Kinlee, 1. I love spending time with our family and all things KC sports. During the week, I’m a mortgage processor. (I basically coordinate the mortgage process.)
Weddings were always something I loved, from the couples’ first-look to the celebration on the dance floor. I’ve been working in the wedding industry since 2010. Before I joined Veil Events, I had my own wedding planning/coordination business.
It’s so satisfying to know that I helped someone make their day go smoothly and a little more magical. Please contact Veil Events if you’re looking for a Wedding Coordinator. We will love to help you!

Why is it important for a bride to hire a wedding coordinator?
The bride spends many months planning the perfect wedding and then doesn’t know who is going to execute it on the wedding day. Many brides think their family can help make her plans come true but they’re often busy with pictures or visiting with family, or worse, they miss all the important moments of their loved one’s big day. A wedding coordinator makes sure the bride and their family have the perfect, stress-free day!

 

How and when did you start in the wedding industry?
Weddings were always something I loved, from the look on the couple’s face to the celebration on the dance floor. In 2010 I moved to Kansas City and started working for a wedding planner as her assistant on the day of coordination. In 2013, I started my own wedding coordination business to help those brides who didn’t think they could afford to hire a wedding coordinator. I’ve coordinated over 20 weddings and it’s become a passion to help others have the best day of their lives.

 

Tell us about a time when you helped the bride on her wedding day.
One of my brides had a particular family member that made her anxious and stressed. This particular family member ended up in the bridal suite before the ceremony began and I could immediately tell my bride was upset. I politely asked that everyone except the bridal party leave the room. This family member stayed put. I had to ask two times before finally leaving the room. The bride was so apologetic that I had to do that but I reassured her that it was my job to keep her happy and comfortable.

 

What is your favorite part of wedding day?
The moment after the bride and groom walk down the aisle as a married couple. They’re so elated and relieved it’s over. I always sneak my couples off to a private area to have a moment just the two of them to get to enjoy the feeling of being married.

I’m so happy I chose Veil Events for my wedding!

“I’m so happy I chose Veil Events for my wedding! Jaclyn was my coordinator and I could not have asked for a better coordinator! She went above and beyond on my wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly! She took on so many roles from helping with set up/decor, clean up, decorating my cake with flowers, time management/creating schedule, keeping the wedding party’s drinks full, having everything the bridal party needed while getting ready, etc. I could go on and on, but I’ll just say she was phenomenal! The unexpected details were not unnoticed by family, the wedding party, guests and myself – I got so many compliments about her! Lindsay was also a dream to work with! She helped me book everything and stayed involved in the whole process! The planning process was made so easy as I had multiple meetings with checkpoints along the way to make sure I was not forgetting anything! I would highly recommend Veil Events for any bride- you will not be disappointed!”
