The Myth Of The "Day-Of" Coordinator

It is often said that a “day-of” coordinator is a must have on your wedding day so that everything runs smoothly. You want to save money or your budget doesn’t allow for a full-service coordinator, so you decide that the day-of coordinator is right for you. Well the truth is...the “day-of” coordinator may not be the best choice or value.  This brings me to the myths of the “day-of” coordinator.

Myth #1: The “Day-Of” Coordinator is enough.

Brides often seek a “day-of” coordinator to ensure all that they have put in place gets carried out accordingly. However, if there hasn't been any informative communication with the coordinator until the day of, the coordinator will not be prepared to oversee vendor responsibilities and troubleshoot problems that may arise. Therefore, the coordinator is not able to carry out the duties you expected.

Myth #2: Your wedding day will be perfect because you hired a “day-of” coordinator.

Often times the expectations you have of your “day-of” coordinator are outside of the scope of what they provide on wedding day.  You may want them to set up your DIY crafts and expect them to know all of the vendors and where everything is supposed to go.  However, if they weren't involved in much of the overall planning process, it may be impossible for a coordinator to jump in and take the reigns.


As coordinators are finding out through their own experiences how a Day Of coordinating service doesn't really benefit the client or their own business, many have chosen to "revamp" their day of and offer logistical meetings beforehand in which they can fully prepare and be aware of the bride's expectations.  

At Haute Weddings, we offer an Event Management service which includes forming a time line, floor plan, looking over contracts, contacting and confirming vendors, a final walk through, ceremony rehearsal and a full day of on-hands coordinating on wedding day.  You will also gain access to our Event Management System in which you can browse our Design Gallery or create your own, schedule appointment reminders, track payment due dates, and lots of other check lists to keep you on track.  Check out a quick summary of our services, here!
