Once we get engaged, we immediately begin planning our wedding day. Many couples hire a wedding planner to plan every detail of their wedding, while some couples choose limited services due to budget constraints. Even when couples hire a full-service wedding planner, a day of event coordinator can make all the difference in the outcome of the actual wedding day. A day of event coordinator is integral to the success of the magical day in the wedding venue for many reasons.
Planner and Coordinator at Your Wedding Venue
A day of event coordinator should never be confused with a wedding planner. A day of event coordinator and a wedding planner have different functions. A wedding planner will help you pick a wedding venue, help you imagine a theme and secure all of the vendors to make every detail of your wedding day on point, from décor rental to catering. Wedding planners help you put the big day together, while the day of event coordinator makes sure it happens inside of the wedding venue the way you planned it. Wedding planners offer different levels of service that can include day of event coordinating. If you have a full-service wedding planner, the day of event coordinator will work with your wedding planner for the success of your event.
Organizing the Event
A day of event coordinator attends the wedding rehearsal, and mock table settings at your wedding venue to review and discuss the timeline of events that you created with your wedding planner. The day of event coordinator arrives early at the wedding venue to organize and coordinate the arrival of guests, the wedding party, groom and bride. They manage the seating, cake cutting and toasting events, and ensure that everything occurs according to the timeline that was created with the wedding planner. A day of event coordinator organizes and oversees all the details of your wedding and reception to make sure everything unfolds the way you envisioned it.
