You only have one shot to make your wedding day perfect, so a wedding coordinator is important! You don’t want to task this to a family member or friend because then they won’t be able to enjoy the day with you. So, once you have chosen a coordinator, here is what you should expect!
Your coordinator should set up several meetings with you. The only way for your coordinator to completely know what you expect on your wedding day is to make frequent meetings as your ideas develop and evolve. Your coordinator should know what time you want everything to start, when special dances will be, and many more other important things. When in doubt, set up another meeting.
A big task for your coordinator is to make a timeline and help you stick to it. This way, you won’t have to worry if you’re spending too much time doing one thing or if you need to move on to something else; your coordinator will be there to let you know when its time to start everything. They will alert the proper people of when they should be doing their jobs, ensuring that you get everything you want on your wedding day.
At the reception, your coordinator should cue the band or DJ, cue the best man and maid of honor for speeches, and oversee the entire event to make sure everything is running smoothly. If any problems do arise, you won’t even know about them (unless it is something major that cannot be fixed without you), because you don’t need the extra stress.
