Congratulations! If you are reading this article, you are most likely getting married soon! For such an exciting time in your life, you don't want to look back on your wedding day and remember being stressed, frustrated, and overwhelmed. Consider booking a coordinator for your wedding! Wedding coordinators are essentially an insurance policy for your wedding as they will ensure that your and your fiancé's dreams and wishes come true. Coordinators oversee vendors and event set-up, manage timelines, and troubleshoot any last minute challenges on your wedding day. Here are 5 reasons a coordinator will make your day magical:
1. Point of Contact
Coordinators mainly serve as the central point of contact for you and your fiancé, your vendors, and all of your guests. Your coordinator is the person who has all of the answers to your questions, your vendors' questions, and your guests' questions. They serve as this contact from when you book through your entire wedding day. It is the coordinator's responsibility to make sure everyone is in the right place at the right time, so you don't have to! This is mainly essential on wedding day when there is a million things to set-up and consider. Instead of setting up your own tables and decorations or answering questions from your guests and wedding party, you can relax and enjoy the entire day and rest assured that your coordinator is handling everything.
2. Highlight Your Experience
A wedding coordinator is a silent hero. They work on so many things behind the scenes before and during your wedding day allowing you to have a relaxing, stress-free, and memorable day with all of your closest friends and family. They always keep the couple and their wishes on the forefront - because its YOUR wedding day! Friends and family are great resources for a helping hand, but coordinators ensure that their helping hands reach toward your hopes and dreams. Here at Leeric Lodge, our motto is "stress-free wedding day", and our team of coordinators ensure that this is true for every couple that sets foot onto our property.
3. Attention to Detail
Coordinator's extensive attention to detail is a big part of making sure that your wedding day is beautiful and stress-free. Our coordinators pay attention to the small detail during the booking, planning, and day-of stages of your special day. They ensure that every detail is accounted for whether that be setting up your decorations or simply making sure the ring bearer has the rings in his hands. The coordinator takes all of these responsibilities off of your shoulders! Imagine having to make sure every single detail is perfect, getting pulled in a million different directions, and actually enjoying your wedding day - its almost impossible. After your consultations, your coordinator will know exactly what you want and ensure it comes to life. They will check every detail while you sip champagne with your wedding party!
4. Creating Timelines
Your wedding coordinator is responsible for making and distributing timelines to your vendors, family or VIP's, and your wedding party prior to wedding day. Each timeline is specifically tailored to each vendor, VIP's, and your wedding party. The coordinator is also onsite during your entire wedding day to ensure that the timeline is followed as closely as possible. Coordinators are usually on site for your wedding before the first vendor arrives until after send-off ensuring everyone is where they need to be, doing what they need to be doing and helping make the day as beautiful and smooth as possible. Coordinators are usually the first to arrive onsite and the last to leave to make sure your day is as magical as you imagined!
5. Wealth of Resources
Coordinators generally work with the same vendors multiple times and they build relationships with them! Although preferred vendors are not required, our team of coordinators know that they will deliver high quality products and services for you on your wedding day. Here at Leeric Lodge, we work with our team of vendors like on big team to ensure everything is perfect on your big day. In addition, coordinators generally offer 3-5 pre-wedding consultations and unlimited email and phone consultations prior to your wedding. Use their wealth of knowledge to make decisions on vendors, decorations, or budgeting help! In addition, most coordinators use a central planning portal so all of your information is one place!
Coordinators do so much more than just coordinate on the day of your wedding. They are the jack of all wedding trades and the masters of ensuring your day is stress-free, flawless, and the experience of a lifetime. Your wedding may be his or her millionth wedding, but your coordinator will always ensure that it feels like your first and only wedding day! Wedding planning can be stressful and time-consuming, but with the help of a coordinator, you can rest assured that everything will be handled while you enjoy the pre-wedding festivities like your wedding shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and all of the love from your friends and family.
