Just say everything you’ve posted to us! I’m sure he’d be delighted! He clearly likes event planning as its his job, he clearly likes wedding details and giving you advice, and he’ll be getting paid, and you’ll be inviting him and his family! I’m sure he wouldnt hesitate to say yes!








Just let him know the reasons you stated, that you trust him, he’d be great at the job, etc! In my experience people are generally excited and honored to be a part of someone’s wedding day, especially as he will be getting paid for it! 








Anyway, I’m rambling a bit….but what I’m trying to say is that you’ve nailed it in your original post and there’s no need to stress 🙂

@carrotstick:  I would probably approach it something like this:


“Hey GUY, so I know this is kind of random but I’ve been on the hunt for a Day of Coordinator to handle XYZ at the wedding, and I just keep comparing everyone to you. I don’t know if you would be interested but I have a budget of $$$ to hire someone and if would be interested I’d love to hire you to do it. What do you think?”

Then after gauging his initial response (does it seem like a yes or no?) If it seemed like a “yes” I would throw in the bit about the family.

If it’s a “no” the family thing wouldn’t make a difference and if he’s using the family as an excuse for no, he’s probably just trying to be nice not actually fishing for an invitation for them.

Sounds like a good catch! Hope he’s interested, which I’m guessing he will be!
