Coordination: Much More Than a ‘Day-of’ Service!

When you think of day-of coordination for your wedding, what comes to mind?  Is it an image of someone organizing table numbers, talking with vendors, and greeting guests during your wedding? Maybe its J-Lo in The Wedding Planner, Bluetooth in ear, asserting a fierce yet calm control over the details of the day. While these assumptions about giving cues, setting up, and communicating to prevent issues during the wedding may be valid pieces of the puzzle that is day-of-coordination, they are not representative of the depth and breadth of this service because they do not consider all the work done by your day-of coordinator prior to the day itself; day-of-coordination is not just the presence and completion of various tasks by your coordinator(s) on your wedding day, but rather months of work leading up to the day spent crafting the many details of your dream wedding. In other words, before your coordinator can organize everything for you on your day-of, allowing you and your guests to simply relax and enjoy, they must work with you far beforehand to make sure that all the logistics align.
