Unlike a full-service wedding coordinator, a “Day-of” wedding coordinator is for brides and grooms who want to do most of the planning themselves, but when their wedding day arrives, they need a professional to execute all of their hard work.Too often, brides rely on family and friends to help carry out plans on the day of their wedding. By asking a friend or family member to take on this stressful task, that person will not be able to enjoy the event as a guest, and will end up feeling like “event staff.”
Family and friends mean well and can be very helpful, they can't always do everything and often times don't have the knowledge and experience to deal with the "what ifs", scheduling, and important details. Wedding planners are in the business of dealing with vendors and venues, contracts, and last minute emergencies. While most brides believe that bridesmaids, mothers, and future mother-in-laws are willing to help, you want them to be able to celebrate with you, not work for you. In most cases, your “volunteers” have little experience in the role of event planner. They often end up feeling overwhelmed as they try to keep on top of everything that must be done to ensure that the day runs smoothly.
Don't worry about hurting anyone's feelings. If you want to make sure that they can be involved and not feel left out, then let them help with the initial planning. Make sure they know that while you appreciate and would love their help, you want them to spend the day celebrating with you and your future husband.
