Day of Coordinator Vs. Event Management

Engagement season has just ended and our mail box has been filled with inquiries from the newly engaged, seeking information on " Day of coordination" vs. month of.  This topic has caused quite a few debates in the industry....over all we have failed to educate brides properly. The title alone sums up where the confusion begins ..."Day of" ladies ( and gentlemen) NO planner is EVER available to wake up and walk into your reception space, church, hotel room on wedding day and be fully in the know of what's about to go down. (unless she's packing a wand and pixie dust...and in that case I want her as my new BFF ) In my minds eye their is a newbie planner with a check list interviewing a bride during hair and make up and It's NOT PRETTY as they both realize it's a huge undertaking. Minimally event management is what we should be continually sharing with our new inquiries, this time allows for contract review, the opportunity to create a customized time line filled with your details, schedule a site walk through, see you face to face a few times, attend your final dress fitting, create check list, attend rehearsal and finally coordinate your day. BIG difference right! It helps when we are fully vested with your MOMENT. SOooooo ladies  and gentlemen as your reaching out to planners please keep in mind that our goal is that your celebration is flawless and remember it takes time in order for this to happen ...but you will reap the benefits of hiring a professional. Congratulations and happy planning !
