Why hire a wedding coordinator?
A wedding planner is the ultimate time-saver! A wedding planner also offers great peace of mind that you, your family, and your friends can truly enjoy the engagement and the wedding day. Let your wedding coordinator handle the stress while you relish in the magical experience of getting married! Another aspect to be mindful of is vendor management. The average wedding can involve over 10 different vendors – who can keep track of all that?! Well, your wedding coordinator can! Of course, your wedding coordinator also offers invaluable expertise and recommendations.
What is the difference between a Full-Service package and this Month-of-Directing package?
Full-service wedding planners often specialize in longer-term projects like managing your budget, venue site selection, creating a design element and attending all vendor meetings. Some full-service planners do offer day-of and month-of coordination services as well, but this type of support is truly our sole focus. With the Month-of-Directing package offered through Ivory Unveiled, we coordinate the logistics of your wedding day to make sure that everything you’ve spent months planning runs exactly how you envisioned it. From confirming vendors, timelines, and layouts - to decorating and setting up your ceremony and reception the day-of, Ivory Unveiled will take care of it all to ensure that your plans are carried out smoothly.
My venue already has an onsite coordinator. Why should I hire a wedding coordinator?
While the venue coordinator serves the venue, Ivory Unveiled serves you and your interests. A wedding planner will spend the last few months prior to your wedding getting to know your personal taste and preferences, whereas the venue coordinator has not. Venue coordinators are surely trained to oversee the overall production of your wedding reception, but the wedding coordinator can ensure every little detail is seamless.
Once I book Ivory Unveiled, how much communication can I expect?
Ivory Unveiled is always happy to offer advice or guidance, and will also meet on several occasions to discuss event details, timeline creation, and more. We understand that clients sometimes book 6, 9 or even 12+ months out and we are happy to offer suggestions, opinions and/or guidance at any point throughout the planning process - although the bulk of coordinating would take place 2-3 months prior to the wedding day..
Will my wedding coordinator take over the vision for my wedding?
Absolutely not! Ivory Unveiled takes great pride in celebrating each couple's unique story, encouraging brides to embrace their personal style. We are always delighted to share thoughts on design, but passion and expertise lies in event execution.
