Bride & Groom Should know Wednesday….

Today’s B&G should know is about Coordinators.  I get asked all the time if they should really spend the money on a coordinator and here is my answer to that.

Coordinators do more behind the scenes than anyone else on your wedding day. If you have a good coordinator, they are taking care of things behind the curtain that would probably make you cry like a little girl.  Believe me when I say I have seen my fair share of catastrophes averted by a coordinator that the bride and groom never even knew happen.  My advice is hire a professional NOT Aunt Sally that likes to throw good parties.  You need someone with experience because you only get one day and with the right coordinator no matter what arises it will be flawless.  So the answer is YES please hire a coordinator even if it is a Day of Coordinator I promise it will be worth every penny and on most occasions they will even save you money.

Brides & Grooms should know Wedding Wednesday…

I have been asked over and over about things that happen behind the scenes at a wedding and for advice from wedding clients to make their day not only perfect for them but for everyone.  I will attempt to keep up on Wednesday’s advice from questions I have been asked over the years.
If you have a question please feel free to email me

First question will be about Vendor Meals-
When you say yes to a “vendor” meal you are probably saying yes to a cold old sandwich and a cookie.  Yep that is right the vendor meal you probably paid $35 for is a sandwich. This in my opinion has gotten much worse over the last year due to more caters entering the wedding industry who do not have a relationship with vendors.  Now your videographer, coordinator, photographer and DJ have been with you and will work probably more than 8-12 hours got a pb&j sandwich! ;( I recommend including your vendors that are with you all day in on the hot meal. Sometimes my clients will actually sit me at a table so I can see everything that happens and I don’t miss any action.  If you are not as close to your vendors just making sure they get a hot dinner will be so appreciated and will energize them for the rest of your special day.
