Planning perfection requires some checklists along the way. It is likely that you planned every detail of your wedding day. Did you add a day of event coordinator to the wedding checklist? Many of us do not add a day of event coordinator to our wedding checklist. This is usually due to some confusion about the title and the importance of having a day of event coordinator at the wedding venue. What is a day of event coordinator and why do we need one at the wedding venue? A day of event coordinator is paramount to the success of the events that take place on that magical day in the wedding venue.
Coordinator vs. Wedding Planner at the Wedding Venue
What is the difference between the day of event coordinator and the wedding planner at the wedding venue? A day of event coordinator should never be confused with wedding planner. A day of event coordinator and a wedding planner have very different jobs. A wedding planner will help you pick a wedding venue, help you imagine a theme and secure all of the vendors to make every detail of your wedding day on point, from décor rental to catering. Wedding planners help you put the big day together, while the coordinator makes sure it happens as you planned.
Duties of a Day of Event Coordinator
A day of event coordinator attends the wedding rehearsal, and mock table settings at your wedding venue to review and discuss the timeline of events that you created with your wedding planner. The day of event coordinator arrives early at the wedding venue on the special day to organize and coordinate the arrival of guests, the wedding party, groom and bride. They manage the seating, cake cutting and toasting events, and ensure that everything occurs according to a strict timeline that you created with your wedding planner. A day of event coordinator organizes and oversees all the details of your wedding and reception to make sure everything unfolds the way you envisioned it.
At the Wedding Venue
On the day of the event, the day of event coordinator carries out functions as their title indicates. Every event that occurs at the wedding venue on the day of the event is coordinated by the day of event coordinator. They coordinate the movement of the wedding party and guests within the wedding venue. All aspects of the ceremony and reception are managed and organized by the day of event coordinator to ensure everyone is seated according to assignment, and everything is in place as planned. They guarantee that the wedding party makes an entrance in the appropriate order and at the appropriate time. Entrances, music and ceremonial events are all managed according to the timeline and plan. Gifts are arranged, food services are managed, toasting and speeches are organized, and the first dance and music are coordinated just the way you imagine them.
