Post # 1
it’s my first post!!!
I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but after much googling, I can’t find anything. So i’m looking for your opinions.
I’m doing my own planning, and have hired a coordinator for the month of the wedding.
So when June 20th hits, we’ll hand over our plans to the coordinator and they’ll manage the vendors up to the wedding day (July 20)
I was thinking a book explaining all the happenings, food, drinks, timing, theme, etc etc would be beneficial to the vendors.
What do you think?
Little tabs that read “flowers”, “decor”, “food”, “music” etc etc…
Then they ALL KNOW!!!!!!
Looking forward to your comments!

I would only give vendors the info that applies to them.
Ex: Your photographerand DJ/band are not affected at all by your flowers, theme or decor. But- your caterer will be- “what time the florist is arriving, when do the tables need to be set up, etc.” Keep it simple- if you give vendors other than your DOC *every* detail, they may miss something important.
Schedules will be appreciated by all vendors, but only as far as what applies to them- I had a master list, and made 3 versions- one for caterer, DJ, photographer. Only a few items were on all 3 lists (cake cutting).

That sounds good but like the pp, only what will apply to the vendors. Like my Dj will need a timeline like the caterers to know when to announce dinner, and the toast. The rest of his timeline will consist of the timing for certain songs and events like bouquet toss.
The florist will need to be there before the caterer so she arrives at 4, caterer at 5. Dj at 3.
