I understand your concerns, and I think it says a lot about you that you’re as concerned for her as you are for your own wedding. I had a day-of who did the whole set up of decor and everything for me and it does make a huge difference.

I think your best option is to just communicate with her. She is sure to understand, and will appreciate your feelings that she’ll want to be with her family. If she’s determined to come through on the wedding day, that says a lot about her professionalism. You should have a back up plan just in case (we always should, anyway!). But if she says she can do it, trust her.

I’m sorry to hear of this added stress!

My first concern would be to find out if she has an assistant or back-up person that she can call in case of emergencies to fill in for her.

Also, I don’t know what your contract stipulates however my wedding coordinator was contractually required to be at my rehearsal because it was important that she control what was happening and answer any questions the wedding party/vendors might have. I would definitely look into this (may be an hourly allocation rather than directly stated) and see what your options are and if you are entitled to any refunds in the fee if she is unable to meet the contractual obligation.

I agree. That is a terrible situation for either of you to be in, I’m sorry you are both going through that.  I would definitely just trust her to be there, but maybe talk with your family members, the ones who you say you think can help, and ask them to be prepared to be called on the night before to get decorating.  Then, day before, if she doesn’t contact you, I would make sure you call her, just to double check that she is okay and will absolutely be able to make it.  That way, you will be covered no matter what!
