What do wedding coordinators do?

When having DIY weddings, friends or close relatives are often tapped for help during the ceremony or reception. While they might be more than willing to lend a hand, this also means that you and your guests need to balance celebrating and working. Hiring a coordinator will enable everyone to fully enjoy the celebration and make memories that last a lifetime.

Wedding suppliers like coordinators wear multiple hats during the big day. To help you understand the value and depth of the services offered, we’ve outlined the different roles of these professionals.

Day-of wedding coordinators

These handle three things during the actual wedding day: timelines, logistics, and management. They make sure that timelines are met and that the whole program is executed to perfection. Because of their help, vendors and guests arrive and eat their meals on time, wedding DJs play on cue, and speeches and dances are within schedule.

Second, they make sure everything’s ready in terms of logistics. They ensure that seating charts are followed and that flowers arrive fresh and beautiful at the venue. Lastly, they manage everything at the end of your wedding day, facilitating vendor payments and rental returns.

Month-of wedding coordinators

These are involved on a longer-term basis. They take time to review all the details and fix potential issues. Unlike their day-of counterparts, they have the benefit of time to give recommendations on your wedding budget, seating charts, and invitations. During the wedding, they also take on the tasks of their day-of counterparts, including menu tasting.

Factors affecting the price of wedding coordinators

Many factors affect the total cost of wedding coordination, and here are some notable ones:

Support level

Most couples have different needs or preferences. Some might be more hands-on in planning and only need day-of wedding coordination. Other couples might need help with keeping track of the little details and require services on a longer-term basis. The more work needed, the higher the cost.

Expertise level

Costs will also depend on their level of expertise. Seasoned coordinators have unique styles and charge higher than newbies. Make sure to hire a Tasker who matches your vision to prevent undue stress (and extra fees) during your special day.

Event complexity

If you have more guests and multiple venues, month- and day-of wedding coordinator costs can also increase since the Tasker will have to work with more vendors and equipment and make sure each guest is happy.

Reducing the cost of wedding coordination

Do you want lower costs to save money? You can make your dream wedding come to life and enjoy substantial savings by hiring your wedding planner as your coordinator. They would be very familiar with the details of your wedding and could offer a discount. Moreover, consider hiring a coordinator by the hour or making your guest list more exclusive. To keep everyone happy, simply send a virtual invite and stream your wedding online.

Once you get connected with a Tasker, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of questions and have a quick chat. Ask about their working style and approach to wedding coordination. Doing so will help you gauge if they’re a good fit and if your personalities match. The last thing you need is to work with someone who doesn’t make you feel at ease.

Tipping isn’t always expected in the wedding industry, but it's a good way to make your coordinator feel appreciated for their service. You can give around 10% to 20% of the total fee.

Most day-of coordinators don't decorate unless they offer design and styling services. However, they can manage the placement of menus, tokens, guest books, etc.

A wedding planner works with you from event conception to execution. They’re involved in sourcing vendors, setting budgets, and curating. Meanwhile, day-of coordinators ensure that your plans are executed well and that the wedding flows seamlessly.
