~ ORGANIZATIONAL TALENTS: A coordinator can handle as little or as much of your wedding as you choose from dress fittings to china selection to arranging of flowers. The coordinator is available on the big day to do the things you can’t do while you are at the hairdresser and make up artist like arranging the alphabetical seating lists, checking that the correct number of place seating has been done, checking on all suppliers involved, coordinating last minute details. Talented wedding coordinators can act as counselors, helping to appease the conflicting opinions of various family members. Coordinators can be especially helpful to couples who are short on time and live far from the location they have chosen for their wedding. The coordinator will also address the little things that a couple may have overlooked. The coordinator's greatest contribution to the wedding plans will be to give the bride and her mother the confidence they need to handle many details on their own. One of the most important attributes of a coordinator is her eye for attention to detail and the consistency of her vision. Most coordinators advise that a wedding takes 6 months to plan but a year would be better. Be honest and realistic about your wedding budget. You may think you are paying your wedding coordinator a lot but bear in mind she is involved in 6 – 12 months work and the overall success of your day. Think how much you are paying your band and florist just for the night in relation to the amount of work she is going to do. You may think instead of paying a coordinator you would rather spend more on your flowers, music and champagne for the reception. But think of it this way: a good wedding coordinator is like a good accountant. Even though you pay for her services, in the long run she saves you time and money and that translates into a happier, memorable and more relaxed wedding day for you.
