What are Day of Wedding Services?

August 7, 2016

Wedding day planning and coordination is critical to the success of any wedding. By “success” we mean the event goes as expected and the happy couple and their guests enjoy themselves. They focus on themselves, not the mechanics of the ceremony or reception or party. We always like to infuse some magic whether it be an unexpected song, special speech, or even a fun picture.

The bride and groom also have formal responsibilities during the day after “I do’s” are said. Playing host and hostess including saying hello to all guests formally and informally, making sure each special picture is taken, and dancing with parents and loved ones.

And on your wedding day this can be very stressful to coordinate while trying to just have fun.

Couples who prefer planning assistance have options of partial planning or full-service planning depending on their specific needs and budget. Though we provide services the day of the wedding, those services are the icing on the cake. It’s the planning and work ahead of time that helps make the event go smoothly. Much of that is your responsibility, and we love to work with brides who know exactly how they want the day to go. Then, we take the wheel the day of the event.

Specifically our day of wedding services include,

  • Access to our company via e-mail and phone calls.
  • Two hour meeting prior to wedding to review details and plans.
  • Creation of a complete wedding day timeline. Coordinating all vendors and bridal party.
  • Rehearsal and ceremony coordination.
  • Wedding planner and assistant on site for eight hours for ceremony and party.

Day of wedding services are best for those who can handle much of the details themselves but need help on the ‘big day’ to make sure things run smoothly.

  • We will get together to go over the arrangements ahead of time.
  • As part of our service we will connect with suppliers, the caterer, all those entrusted to make the day special to ensure all the details are in order.
  • We will coordinate and manage the wedding-day schedule so all those involved (wedding professionals and those in the wedding party) are where they should be when they should be there.
  • We keep your contracts on-hand and are ready when there is a question. If the band claims they are only scheduled until 11pm but you thought midnight we have the contract and can quickly check.
