4 reasons to hire a Wedding Co-ordinator
It goes without saying, planning a wedding is one of the most exciting times of your life…
But that doesn’t mean it’s not overwhelming either! There’s a huge amount to consider – from venues to aisle style, styling to the logistics, and more. And of course, you want your wedding day to unfold seamlessly, so that it is the perfect reflection of your love story. Cue a Wedding Co-ordinator! Also known as an On-the-Day Co-ordinator, these wedding experts will quickly become your wedding day heroes, helping with the finer details and the smooth running of everything on the day itself. Here’s a few reasons why a Wedding Co-ordinator is a must-have for your special day…
If you want a stress-free celebration where you can enjoy every single second of your forever moment, you need a Wedding Co-ordinator by your side on the day. Their service extends well beyond the day itself, where you’ll have a consultation 4 – 6 weeks prior to the big day to run through your expectations, timelines, schedules and suppliers. Your Wedding Co-ordinator will know about your celebration inside out, so they can pull all the elements together to ensure its memorable for all the right reasons. This includes meeting and greeting suppliers, ensuring your bridal party are running on time and generally making sure the logistics are all taken care of. Your only job is to sip on bubbles and soak up the moment!
Your Wedding Co-ordinator will quickly establish a solid working relationship with your suppliers, which is a vital part of ensuring a seamless soirée. Your Co-ordinator will know who is turning up on the day and when, so that you don’t have to worry about arrival times or taking care of people setting-up. This means you can get ready to say, ‘I Do’ without a hitch!
While the vibe of your wedding day may appear relaxed, it’s going to be very busy behind the scenes! Wedding Co-ordinator’s will whip up a planning document that details the intricate timings of each aspect of your celebration. They’ll make sure the timings are realistic, align with your suppliers’ expectations and leave just enough room for any eventualities.
The Plan B
And while we’re on the topic of eventualities, chances are, there are bound to be a few hiccups on your wedding day. The benefit of having a Wedding Co-ordinator is that they’ll be there to swiftly take care of them – whether one of your bridesmaids needs her dress sewn up, your mother-in-law has a migraine (emergency bridal kit and paracetamol at the ready) or the weather isn’t playing ball. You can always count on your Wedding Co-ordinator to be there to sort everything out. Often, you won’t even realise anything has gone wrong!
Here at Styled to Remember, we’ve worked as Wedding Co-ordinator’s for a number of years and have seen every possibility take place! We thought we’d offer you a quick example about how we have helped one of our couples have an unforgettable day – while dealing with unforeseen circumstances discreetly. The soon-to-be newlyweds were hoping for a day full of sunshine, but as we reluctantly saw thunderstorms on their way, we had to bring their outdoor ceremony inside… and quickly! We arranged for all the beautiful blooms to be transported indoors and brought out umbrellas for all the guests to stay dry – all while making sure everyone had their arrival drinks topped up via the bar. While the ceremony was taking place, we moved to the barn to carefully light the candles, set the place names and add the final touches to the venue. The weather couldn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and the day ran perfectly.
