As Covid-19 restrictions are quickly lifting around the country, and it seems as though we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, weddings have become a hot topic. After all the postponements and Covid engagements, weddings are in high demand. While the wedding boom has everyone in the wedding industry jumping for joy, working 2-3 weddings a weekend, every weekend will evidently cause some vendor burnout. So how would having a wedding day-of coordinator help prevent burnout for your wedding? We're glad you asked!
Vendors Help Vendors
In the wedding world, we rely on our fellow vendors so much! They are our partners throughout the wedding planning process, and the wedding day. After all, we work together to create beautiful weddings for our amazing couples! Although we all play a very important part in the big day, the vendor that most often "glues" us together is the day-of coordinator or wedding planner.
Coordinators are so amazing because they make sure everything is running according to the timeline, that everything looks as it should, that the couple is happy & stress free, and that their fellow vendors are thriving. This makes it so that florists can focus on their floral designs, photographers can focus on taking amazing pictures, and the bride can be present and enjoy the wedding day.
What happens when you don't have a wedding planner or day-of coordinator? More often than not, your photographer or videographer will step into the coordinator role when it comes to your timeline. They will be the ones trying to keep everything on schedule, and get you down the aisle. While that is SO nice of them to do, it takes some of their attention away from the camera, and they might not catch those candid moments. You'll also find a parent or family member welcoming vendors and putting any finishing touches on the space instead of focusing on spending time with the couple and other family members. Coordinators really do help everyone enjoy the day so much more, and take in every little moment.
Now more than ever having a day-of coordinator is key. Weddings are booming, and it's highly likely that your vendors are working multiple events in a single weekend. If your vendors are playing multiple roles in the wedding, over and over again, it's just a matter of time until they work themselves too hard. Having a coordinator allows them to focus only on their job, which in turn helps them do their best work! Who doesn't want that?
The Benefits of a Wedding Coordinator
As we mentioned above, the coordinator is kind of like the glue that holds all the other wedding vendors together. Day-of coordinators will take care of all the small details, so you (and the other vendors) don't have to worry! Coordinators will complete final confirmations with your vendors before the big day to make sure everyones timeline & event details align. They will also help set-up any décor around your venue, make sure everything is running according to the detailed timeline, greet your guests & assist with event transitions, execute the ceremony, clean-up your event, and more. They seriously take care of so many things that would otherwise get overlooked!
Who will get your crazy wedding party together before the ceremony? Who will make sure your guest book gets signed by all of your lovely friends & family? Who will put your place cards out before the reception? Your day-of coordinator - that's who! Seriously, run don't walk to get yourself a coordinator!
