Event Planner Notes

December 1, 2011

Occasionally we’ll get a call from a bride or her mother requesting “Day of” wedding coordination. Some wedding planners title their various levels of service with a nickname. We like leave it simple and less misleading - Full or Partial Planning.

These Brides just want to be sure everything they planned is taken care of so they don’t have to worry about anything on their wedding day. Typically when we consult with a bride who has “Day of” in mind, they soon find out the process is more involved than originally thought. So along with ceremony coordination and reception management, we are hired to assist with tying up unexpected lose ends.

This past spring we met Stephanie and her mother and they were looking for a Day of Coordinator. Stephanie’s mother lives in Colorado and could only travel to Maryland once to help Stephanie with her planning. Additionally, Stephanie had just started a new job that was keeping her pretty busy.
Stephanie’s mother retained our services during her single trip to Maryland. With our assistance, this visit included a menu tasting, cake tasting, and florist selection.

We reviewed Stephanie’s contracts and made sure everything was in order. Stephanie’s reception would take place in a tent and her color scheme was red and black. One of our suggestions was to rent black linens with red napkins. Stephanie loved the black & red satin cloths! And deciding to tie red napkins with a black ribbon would look perfect.  Lastly we met with Stephanie, her fiancée Avram and Richard from Kings Contrivance Restaurant to work out the wedding day logistics. Then we put together the wedding weekend time line and confirmed this with all the vendors.

On a gorgeous late summer afternoon, Stephanie and Avram were married under a beautiful Chuppah decorated by Tina of Wicked Willow. Soon afterwards, cocktails were served and dancing began followed by dinner.  As with all special days, the evening just flew by and soon the Sheraton Hotel shuttles arrived to pick up guests for their trip back to the hotel. After a quick get together the next morning, guests started to depart to the airports for their return flights home.
