He/She will ensure all the details are ready for your wedding day celebration.

Wedding Coordinator (Day-Of-Wedding Coordinator)
A wedding coordinator is similar to a wedding planner, in that they help you organize and pull together your wedding details, but they may not handle quite as much as the traditional wedding planner would.

For example, a wedding planner may sit down with you from day one to help you dream up all the wedding colors, style, and decor theme and help you negotiate contracts and book vendors.. Vs a wedding coordinator who may only stick to finalizing all your vendor business AFTER you’ve already made the major decisions. Wedding coordinators will most likely handle contracted work primarily, but are not always limited to this only.

You will meet your Wedding Coordinator 1 to 2 months beforehand to fill them in on what to expect on the actual day.

Then come your wedding day, your wedding coordinator will over-see time management for ceremony, processional, recessional, cocktail, entrance, speech, dance, to prompt the emcee and vendors, troubleshoot and ensure quality control of set up, including personalized details and decor.

Your wedding coordinator is also in charge of handling all of your vendors and set-up on the day of your wedding, as well as any type of clean-up or post-wedding duties needed - so that you and your family members can just relax and enjoy the day.
