Do You Need A Wedding Coordinator?
Please note that "coordination" is not the same as "planning." Coordination is designed to manage the event that a couple has already planned. But I am happy to offer suggestions and answer questions about vendors - to help you plan - at no additional charges!
The Bonus Bridesmaid
$700 (Greater New Orleans area only - additional fees apply for travel, Sundays and holidays)
For the brides on a tight budget - For coordination that only requires an initial meeting with the couple, no additional rehearsal or multiple venue visits - These are typically smaller weddings that just need a helping hand on the day/night of. For the couple who just wants someone other than the bride/groom, family, or wedding party handling all the things that can come up during a wedding. I'll basically do whatever is needed throughout the day/night to make sure your wedding is stress-free and flowing well. Your caterer isn't cleaning the trash off the guest tables? No problem, I'll grab a trash can and get to it. You purchased your own alcohol and now you're out of vodka? I'll run to the nearest store and get more. Need someone to cut and pass cake? Got it! 6 hours start at $700.
The Whole Shabang
$1495 (Greater New Orleans area only - additional fees apply for travel, Sundays and holidays)
For brides wanting a little more peace of mind. Coordination begins about 4 weeks before your wedding. First we'll have a meeting to discuss details and visit the venue to make sure we have the proper layout. Then work together to create a timeline of the day. I will call to confirm vendors (arrival and departure time and who is in charge of what), manage vendor set-up, set-up all decor including your personal items, take everything down and package it up at the end of the night, keeping everything on a smooth, stress-free timeline. I do all the "things" on the Wedding Day ~ Basically...wedding day execution from start to finish. You won't have to worry about who is setting up the backdrop, wondering if your DJ knows his cues, did your florist bring the flowers for your cake, where are the groomsman that went missing 2 minutes before the processional is about to start...or better yet... who is going to get you that cocktail when you're ready to start partying!!! Girl, I GOT YOU! . I'll distribute the timeline to all vendors so we're all on the same page, attend and manage your rehearsal and wedding day. So that's one meeting, one rehearsal and the wedding day!
