Do-It-Yourself Weddings

For the bride that wants to do her entire wedding by herself, don’t forget to hire help for the day of. There are only so many things that one woman can do. If you want to enjoy all of your incredible planning and decorating, make sure that you hand over the reigns on the day of your wedding. All you need is an experienced hand and it will all go smoothly. I just handled Same Day Wedding Coordination in Houston for the mother of the Bride. She is a very talented woman with fabulous creativity and coordination skills. I could tell that it was hard to hand her baby over, but by the end of the evening, I know that she was glad that she did. There were so many little details that happen at the last moment. It is so nice to have someone else do them for you instead of adding stress to a day that needs to run perfectly. Timing is everything. There are always last minute requests that come up or decisions that you never would think of. Some of the things that have happened to me while I was the Wedding Coordinator for the day are the officiants asking for microphones just before the service was about to begin, special arrangements for a table on the alter, drapes to be closed or open during ceremony, ushering guest to places before, during and after the service, wedding party needs, picture organization, and of course, making sure that all of the vendors have reported in and are ready to begin and complete their duties. One of the last weddings that I did had the wrong tuxedos in the tuxedo bags for the men.  Those kinds of things would put a wrench in the day while you are trying to prepare and enjoy one of the biggest days of your life. Use an experienced wedding planner for the day of your wedding. I am available and will travel.
