  • Wedding: October 2012

My wedding coordinator was amazing….until the day. The wedding started at 2pm, she said she would be up to the room at 12:30. At 1:50 I was still waiting…good job I was completely in control. It would have also been helpful if she had put the lights up in the ceremony room like she said she would instead of my Darling Husband having to run around trying to find someone to do it. It would have also helped if I didn’t have to chase her to pay my final bill!!! I literally ran after her after she was leaving for the night (the night before my wedding). But up until then she was great. You need to run through all of the timings, tell her if you want any tables etc in certain places, tell her, I asked about where the centre peices would be waiting, what time the string quartet would be there, how would I know when the photographer and videographer turned up, what time the hotel bar would shut (outside of our ceremony room), I explained how I wanted the line up to go (or lack of!), I explained when I would be having photos etc etc

I’m not a married bee but I know a thing or two about planning (if you get my drift…lol)

This is what you should expect from your DOC

-Discuss how much communication you’ll have

-Rehearsal Ceremony

-Production Scheudle aka wedding day timeline

-Communicating with vendors BEFORE the wedding, providing them the scheudle, answering questons, and ON THE DAY OF serving as their point person. A good DOC will make sure that no one is asking you questions

-Ceremony & Reception Set up

-Ceremony & Reception Breakdown (this shouldn’t include cleaning!!)

-Gift managment (making sure they get to you honeymoon suite, including card box!)


Good luck!!!
