wedding coordinator

Recommended Posts

I just had my wedding at the Hilton. We had 40 guests and Emeline worked out fine. We hired all of the vendors ourselves and from what I can tell from this forum, we did fine negotiating great prices. We hired a DJ, Guitarist, photographer/video and flowers. As long as you give Emeline a detailed list she makes sure everything comes together. I would save the money if I were you.

Personally, I don't think it's worth it. Obviously by reading all of the replies, we're all pretty torn one way or the other!

I'm expecting the same amout of guests, and don't really see a need to hire a wedding coordinator. For me, I think there'll be a certain satisfaction in knowing I was involved in so much of my wedding, same way as a DIY project! Not that people who use a WC aren't involved in their own weddings, but I want to be all in... researching is half the fun! Also, I don't plan on making my wedding incredibly elaborate, I'm not concerned about all of the little details, so that's another reason I don't see a need in hiring an outside WC.

I hired all my own vendors (except flowers and music) and I'm bringing most of my decorations. I wish my coordinator took a little more control with suggestions, but it's fun for me...

 

I really want her for day of. I don't want to hear all problems. All I want to hear is "oh, go ask Maye. She'll take care of that for you." Maybe I live in a dream world, but I like it here in my bubble. :)

 

It isn't necessary, but a luxury I was willing to pay.. expecially since hearing brides who felt a little lost and weren't sure how to get people places. I wanted to avoid as much confusion and questions as possible.
