Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a “Day of Coordinator”?
Every couple needs a day of coordinator. You need to have a professional present on your wedding day to act as your advocate, to keep things running smoothly, to deal with the multiple vendors, and to ensure your vision becomes a reality. Someone to make sure your guests, family, and wedding party are where they need to be when they need to be there. Those details you've dreamed about and spent countless hours planning? We make sure nothing falls through the cracks and that all those little details are taken care of. You (along with your family & friends) should be able to enjoy the day. The day of coordinator is there to answer questions, keep track of all the moving pieces, and troubleshoot any issues that arise.
I checked out your Services page, but what do you REALLY do?
As soon as you hire us, you get unlimited email & phone access to your DOC. You’ll have an in person meeting before your wedding to create a timeline and go through the details (Are you doing a first look? Who is giving a toast? Who is taking home the gifts?). You won't have all the answers at first, but we want to at least get you thinking about them!
On your big day we are the first to arrive and the last to leave. We set-up all your decor, manage vendors (call the bakery when they are late, find a power source for your DJ, etc.), and be a friendly, smiling face to greet guests as they arrive. We corral the bridal party & family for pictures, move guests from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception. We oversee everything from start to finish. We get things done, no matter what it takes. We are your eyes & ears - and if something goes awry, we are there to make the best decision possible for you!
My venue provides a coordinator, do I still need you?
An onsite coordinator works for the venue, they are not responsible for any other vendors you bring in. We work for you. We always suggest talking to the venue to find out what they are willing to do for you - most encourage you to bring someone else in!
A friend has offered to help me on the day of.
Friends and family are amazing in their willingness to help you with your wedding. But ultimately they are your guests and should get to enjoy themselves rather than spend your wedding day stressing over the details. Let a professional take on that role instead, so that those closest to you can relax & have fun.
Do you charge for an initial consultation?
No! Consultations are designed for us to get acquainted with each other. We'll get a better idea of your plans and what it is you’re looking for in a DOC. Most importantly, we want to make sure that you feel 100% comfortable trusting us to execute on the details on your big day!
What locations do you travel to?
We mainly work with couples getting married in NH, MA, and Southern ME. Outside of those areas? No problem! We are flexible and would love the chance to help your day run smoothly!
