- Wedding: July 2010
I am getting married in a new city (I am moving there this summer, with a planned July 2010 wedding) and since neither myself or FH are from there, we decided to look into coordinators. Turns out there are only 2 in town, and only one that is a dedicated coordinator (the other runs a limosine business, and coordinates). This is a small city with ~70 000 people, and it is in Alberta, Canada, so I don’t have the benefit of using the local board.
I spoke with her and the price it beyond reasonable ($600, paid in $200 installments, with the final payment due on the wedding day).
But it seems like I will do a lot of my own footwork. This is what she lists as her services:
– Phone consultations leading up to the days of the wedding, including vendor recommendations
-Revioew of planning and wedding day details
-Creation of detailed itineraries, time-lines, and checklists
-Review of all vendor contracts to find anything that might have been overlooked, and contact all vendors to confirm wedding details
-Supervision of rehersal
-Supervision of ceremony set-up
-Supervision of reception set-up
-Instruction of attendies on their wedding duties
– Handle remaining vendor payments and gratuities
-Coordinate gift collection
-Mediation between bride, vendors and families,
-Setup of wedding items and party favors
-Use of wedding day emergency kit
I don’t mind doing a lot of footwork myself … but that seems like she is pretty much just offering day-of-coordination services, if so, does that warrant spending $600 dollars?
