Welcome to The Bride Link, your home for expert wedding planning advice. Today we're talking all about what a day of coordinator actually does at your wedding!

First and foremost, they're going to be a big, big part of relieving your stress the day of. They're going to take care of a lot of your small details during the wedding day and really they should probably take over at the rehearsal allowing you to become the guest of honor. They're going to be your point person making sure that you don't have to actually work your own event, nor does your friends or family. They're also going to be the person we're all questions are brought to, basically, they're going to be your problem solver for the day.

Additional duties include creating timelines in the preplanning stages that are a key component to making your day runs smoothly. Not only will it include your ceremony and reception timeline, but also pre ceremony so everybody knows what's happening with photography, getting ready, coordinating makeup and overseeing the venue in general. They're going to have details laid out to help you stay within your desired timeframe, making sure that you get to enjoy your day, but also that you make sure all your highlights happen.

They're going to be a master of logistics. They're in charge of the guest's list, the vendors, the floor plan, the seating arrangements, and also setting up your decor and making sure that your decorations are in the correct order and in the place. Now when the wedding day is all over, they're also going to ensure that cleanup happens correctly and to make sure you didn't leave anything important behind. It's very important to make sure that each individual vendor gets returned their correct items returned. A day of coordinator will ensure all these tasks are taken care of so you don’t have to.

On the big day, they're usually going to be able to handle a lot of unexpected situations! It's going to be a breeze if you hire a professional because more than likely they've seen it all before. Situations like missing clothing, a groomsman with two left shoes directing traffic, party crashers, late vendors, and not to mention a rain plan. So the biggest key for having a day of coordinator is offering yourself the peace of mind that you deserve on your wedding day. Consider the importance of the day and how much you already have invested in it, having somebody on your side to make sure that the event goes smoothly is a great investment. Without having an experienced coordinator at your event, you could be placing the entire ceremony at risk.

So making sure that if you don't hire a wedding planner to help you plan the entire wedding, you should at least have somebody there acting as the coordinator. This will ensure that you have a stress free and wonderful day and that you actually get to enjoy yourself.
