Planning a wedding can be hard and stressful. If you want to be able to relax and enjoy your wedding day I would suggest getting a day-of wedding coordinator. You will get so many good ideas and a very detailed timeline for your wedding day! That way you know when everything is going to be happening. You have someone there to keep it all running smoothly; someone to make sure you get food first, you have your drinks ready to go for toasts, the knife and server are ready for cake cutting, you have that toss bouquet as soon as the announcement is made. That way you can really enjoy the day as the bride!
I was a little skeptical at first about whether I wanted a day-of planner or not. But I got really lucky because my florist, Jeri Barr from Bella Bloom, offered to be my day-of planner as well. She is fabulous and has helped me so much! Weighing all the options I didn’t want my family and friends to feel the stress of making sure everything is running smoothly, and as the bride I don’t need to extra stress either! I wanted everyone to enjoy the day with me and have someone else deal with all the little details.
My day-of planner will do all of the set up at the wedding. We have had several meetings and she’s helped with choosing the layout for the reception and how all of the centerpieces and decorations will look. I thought wedding planning would be stressful but because of Jeri I feel relaxed and am just enjoying the excitement of my wedding day and the start of a wonderful life with my fiancé.
I would recommend a wedding planner – even if it’s just for the day of the wedding – to every bride! Lisa Marie of Events by Lisa Marie is Charlotte’s Weddings Preferred Vendor for wedding planning. She has several different packages to choose from, whether you want her with you every step of the planning process from the engagement to your walk down the aisle, or if you just need a little help on the day to make sure things run smoothly and you and your family can enjoy every minute of the wedding. :) You can call her today and tell her what you’re looking for and she’ll help make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch!
I hope this has helped you out some. Really consider a day-of planner. It’s not as expensive as hiring a wedding planner for the whole process, and it’s definitely money well spent!
