Whether you are having a small intimate shindig, or an elaborate & extravagant affair, hiring a professional to help bring your perfect wedding vision to life is a great idea. From day of coordination to full planning and design, there is a planning package that could be the right fit for any couple. Your wedding day is a day that you put your heart and soul into, and you deserve a coordinator that will do the same! And who better to tell you than our day-of coordinator for The Big Fake Wedding San Diego, Kristana!

We’ve invited her to take over the blog today sharing 5 reasons to have a wedding coordinator on your team!
Here are 5 of the main reasons why hiring a wedding coordinator is important
1. You Should Be a Guest at Your Own Wedding
The wedding day itself has so many moving parts. There is a whole production that is going on behind the scenes, and the reality is, you shouldn’t be a part of it! If your vendors have questions on the day of, you should not be the person they are calling for answers. Having a coordinator gives you the chance to be fully present for your wedding and know that you have a professional representing you and handling all of the details.
2. You Want Your Family & Friends by Your Side
If your Maid of Honor has been amazing helping with the wedding planning, be sure to at least still hire a day of coordinator! Because no matter how helpful she was through the planning process, she is your Maid of Honor, and you want her to be able to be by your side on the wedding day. Your family and friends are not hired professionals; they are guests…your most important & special guests! The last thing you want is for them to be pulled away from you to handle wedding details on the most amazing day of your life.
3. The Timeline is Everything
The day-of timeline is so important. This is a process I do not take lightly, and is not something I quickly breeze through. I speak with each and every one of your contributors to be sure that I know exactly what they are providing, exactly what they need provided for them, and exactly how long each item will take. Your wedding team should all be perfectly in sync and should be working together to create a perfect event for you. Every contributor should be fully represented in the timeline so that everyone can refer back to one single document to learn about the overall logistics of the day.
4. You Want to Get the Most Out of Your Investment
Your chosen vendors are such an important part of your day, and you have invested so much in their services. You want to be sure to give them the tools to shine! If you hire an amazing photographer who you are so excited for, you have to be sure that the day structured in a way that gives them the time to create. Think of a coordinator as an insurance policy on your other vendors, we will take the time to figure out exactly what they need to provide their best possible service to you, and will help to create the most seamless day possible.
5. Things Happen!
Day of emergencies can totally happen, and again, you shouldn’t be the one to deal with it. I can’t even tell you how many times things have happened where we had to think on our feet and find a quick & effective solution. I have had coffee dates with couples after the wedding day where we laugh about the things that came up, because they had absolutely no idea on the wedding day! They enjoyed every moment because they had their coordinator there to handle any situation that could arise.
