Planning and pulling off a well-organized wedding can be very stressful these days; especially if the event will include extended family and many friends. Sometimes the bride (and groom) can became a complete basket case by the time the big day arrives. This is not a good situation for anyone, so hiring a wedding coordinator may be the best option.
The bride and groom will naturally want to make the most important decisions personally. They should decide the date, time, venue and the coordinate a wedding details of their guest list. The bride chooses who she will include in her court and the color scheme while the groom will choose the groomsmen. Of course, the couple are likely make most of these decisions together.
Once the most important and personal plans for the wedding have been agreed upon, it is time for the coordinator to help with all the minute details that can drive the average person up the wall.
When a couple become engaged and begin making plans for their wedding day, they have very many decisions to make. The most important decisions are when, where and how many people to invite to the ceremony. The date many need to be adjusted somewhat according to the availability of the venue they have chosen. The guest list may also need to be reduced somewhat according to how much they can afford to spend on the event.
Hiring a wedding coordinator can be very beneficial since they are able to handle many details, but the engaged couple will always make the final decision. Life can become very busy and stressful during the weeks preceding a wedding since there are multiple appointments with the various vendors involved. The bride and her attendants may shop for dresses at more than one store, and once the choices are made alterations may be needed.
The prospective groom and groomsmen will simply choose a tux or suit in the appropriate color and pick their attire up the day before the wedding. Flowers are a more personal choice, so the couple will probably want to visit the florist to order bouquets and buotonnieres. The wedding planner will ensure the flowers are delivered on time and at the correct location.
Most wedding receptions include a catered meal followed by a dance for the wedding guests. Sometimes the meal is served at the same location as the ceremony; especially in the case of an outdoor wedding. Some churches have a fellowship hall that is available for a wedding reception, but most couples choose a different venue nearby.
While hiring a coordinator to make sure the wedding celebration goes as planned is an extra expense, the happy couple can enjoy a relatively stress-free day. They can feel assured the time-schedule will work well for all involved including the guests, the vendors and the wedding party. It is not uncommon for a newly married couple to wonder if they should have eloped at the end of the day, but hiring a wedding planner helps to create a beautiful and memorable wedding day.
