A Hint of the Unexpected

Why Day-Of Coordination is a Fairy Tale

You’ve likely heard the term day-of coordinator. You may even be thinking of hiring one. “Perfect! I’ll plan most of my wedding and bring a day-of coordinator in for my wedding day.” I’m here to tell you the truth. Day-of coordination does not exist. It’s a myth, a fairy tale.


The truth is, there is no way any Wedding Planner could work with you for only a single day and be prepared to manage everything that needs to happen on your wedding day. One day isn't nearly enough time.

But don’t worry, I’m here to help!

I used to offer a day-of coordination package, and it never really worked for me. As a Planner, it's ingrained in me to be helpful. My goal is to help you be the very best host or hostess to your guests on your wedding day. I want you to live in the moment on your wedding day and focus only on making memories. I don’t want you trying to remember to tell me about the last-minute addition of your dog to your ceremony…yes, that really happened. 

But, don't fear, I have a solution: Wedding Management.

What I now offer my clients is a Wedding Management package. The most incredible benefit of Wedding Management is that I offer you unlimited email communication with me from the day you book me. That way, if you have a question, or you want to include your dog in your ceremony, you can email me as needed. Most "day-of" coordinators don’t start communicating with you until about four weeks out from your wedding, and by then, it's too late! 

There are so many more benefits to Wedding Management over day-of coordination that I don’t have room to list them all here, but I would love to tell you more in-person! You can check out our packages page here and then fill out our contact form to schedule a chat with me. I can't wait to meet you!
