I was speaking to a groom recently who was confused by our statement on our services page that says that we no longer offer "Day of Coordination." He thought we planned the wedding but didn't actually show up to run it.
No way. We're there all the way through for our clients.
But I figured I should probably do some education on Day of Coordination. It's a wedding industry term so I apologize if the jargon is confusing.
Most wedding planners offer a service called Day of Coordination or something similar. In reality, it's more like "Month of Coordination." Basically the engaged couple plans the wedding themselves and a Day of Coordinator steps in about a month out to visit the venue and understand the flow and design of the wedding. He or she contacts the wedding vendors to introduce herself and confirm everything. He or she creates a schedule and then actually sets up and runs the rehearsal and the wedding day.
14 Stories doesn't actually offer this service. We used to but stopped a few years back. I'm a bit too much of a control freak to let someone else plan the weddings we're involved with.
We do, however, recommend great professionals who do offer Day of Coordination, and in fact, specialize in it...if this is the service you seek, check out our outstanding colleagues below:
