The Wedding Coordinator is a person who is hired by the bride and groom to help them with their wedding.
The more I look at what a wedding coordinator is responsible for, the bigger the job seems.
I think there are 3 parts of a full-service wedding coordinator which include advice, planning and the execution of the wedding day.
On the day of the wedding, all of the services the bride and groom have hired come together and each one directed or coordinated. Additionally, the wedding coordinator has to keep track of the bridal party so they are all together and where they need to be. Additionally, vendors and service staff need in place and ready for their cue.
In this way, the wedding coordinator works 10 to 20 minutes in the future of “what’s happening now”.
For example, the coordinator would make sure the champagne is poured and the best man and maid of honor are standing by before they cue the Master of Ceremonies to make the announcement for the champagne toast. At the same time, the wedding coordinator has their eye on the kitchen to make sure dinner will be on time.
On the day of, the responsibilities of a wedding coordinator might be analogous to directing a live television show. After all, a wedding is done “in one take.”
