  • Day-of Wedding Coordination

    The truth behind why day-of wedding coordination just doesn’t exist anymore

    Day-of Wedding Coordination doesn’t exist anymore. 

    What used to be called day-of wedding coordination has shifted significantly. There is simply no way to execute a successful wedding without coming in a few weeks prior to verify all wedding vendors and details have been covered. It’s like showing up to a final exam that you’ve never even studied for competing at the Olympics without any formal training. You want your wedding planner to be prepared for everything that might happen.

    We need to know who all of the key players are and what they’re bringing to the table the day of your wedding.

    This is why you may be seeing a lack of day-of wedding planners when it comes to the professionals. What you should be searching for if you truly want a stress-free wedding planning experience is a Wedding Management Package. Rest assured, we’re still here to help on the day-of the wedding, we’re just shifting the phrasing a bit. Let us come in a little early and take the weight off your shoulders. Let us wrap up all of the loose ends so you can spend more time enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. We will make sure no detail was overlooked or forgotten. And in enough time to save your wedding day! Because let’s be honest, that’s your biggest fear isn’t it?

  • Why You Deserve a Wedding Planner

    Wedding management services can save your sanity.

    Congratulations! You’re engaged! Now what? Have you ever planned a wedding before? No? That’s ok! That’s why there are professionals. We’re here to help guide you through this amazing process. We’re here to make your life easier. We want you to be able to enjoy the fun parts of planning the best day of your life while we worry and stress about the ~ugh~ things. Wedding planners and coordinators can help you save money, keep you on track, and stress less!

    We always start by determining your style and budget. In order to have a successful wedding, these two things need to align. Pinterest is super great for inspiration. But it’s likely that those pins were staged. They really don’t do a great job at portraying the costs of a real wedding. And what may be affordable to some, may also break the bank for another. Sticker shock is huge in the wedding industry. How much time did you spend going back and forth with a vendor JUST to get their pricing? As wedding planners and coordinators, we make it our job to know how much each professional charges for their services and how they structure their pricing. By determining your style, we’re able to help guide you to the best vendors who will be able to provide what you want at a price you can afford.

    We also know how they work together too. If you’re having fresh flowers placed on your cake, you’ll want to consider if your baker has worked with your florist before. Do they agree on who will take responsibility for placing the flowers on your cake? It’s important to know who works well with others when liability issues can arise. And as coordinators, that is literally our job. To coordinate your vendors.

    Who doesn’t love discounts?!

    Lots of wedding planners are partnered with amazing companies. With all of the discounts we can provide to our clients, sometimes we even pay for our own cost of services! For example, Devoted Wolf Events has partnered with Kleinfeld Bridal Party were we can help you say YES at a fraction of the cost. And we’ve partnered with Minted. We can help you get discounts ranging from 25-100% off save the dates, invitations, monograms, and other various items and services.

    If you’ve never planned a wedding before, would you know how long it takes for your caterer to serve each guest? If you want stunning outdoor photographs, do you know when golden hour is? Details like this are huge when creating your timeline. They may seem small and insignificant but it could mean the difference between a beautiful picture just before sunset when the lighting is perfect and a disastrously dark picture that no amount of light and airy editing can save.

    Even if you can’t afford a full service wedding planner, you owe it to yourself and your friends and family to, at the very least, hire wedding management services. Don’t ask your best friend or aunt to help coordinate everyone on your wedding day. Ask them to be present and enjoy your day as guests.
