This blog post may come as a surprise to you. You may be thinking “Krisy, you have been telling us this whole time that every bride deserves at least a wedding day coordinator!” Yes, this is true. Every bride deserves to have someone handle the final details of your wedding day that they spent months and months planning. However, you need to know that when you hire a professional wedding coordinator, we need to work BEFORE your wedding day as well.
This is where the term “Month of Coordination” comes in. In order for us to ensure that your wedding day goes as smoothly and as stress free as possible, we need to take care of many things before the wedding day arrives. We need to visit the venue, to see exactly how you want the space laid out. We need to confirm the delivery times with your rentals companies. We need to figure out what time your vendors will be arriving for their setup. We need to review your contracts and make sure we are aware of the rules of not only the venue, but the vendors as well. On top of that we need to create the timeline for the wedding day. And much MUCH more. Think this can be done the day before your wedding day? We simply can’t know all the details of your wedding day without putting in the hours before with the bride & groom, family, the venue and the vendors.
One of the many perks of being a Sparkle Bride, is that with any package, you get unlimited email contact and monthly email checkins. This means that even if you just hired us to help you that month before the wedding, we are still there to answer your questions and ensure you are staying on track with your planning.
Hear from our Nashville Sparkle Bride, Kayla, and how having Southern Sparkle as her Month of Coordinators made her planning process and wedding day smooth and stress free.
“I cannot even begin to express how amazing Krisy and the Southern Sparkle team was to us during the planning and preparation of our big day! As soon as we sat down for our initial meeting with Krisy, we knew she was the coordinator for us. She was so friendly, organized, and immediately put my fiancé, our mothers, and myself at ease. We booked Krisy and her team for the “Month of” package as my fiancé and I wanted to be very hands on in planning our day. However, Krisy made herself available to us from the moment we booked through the big day. She was always available through email and quickly answered any questions or concerns we had. When selecting other vendors, Krisy recommended several that fit within the price range we were looking to spend. As the wedding month approached, Krisy reached out to all of our numerous vendors and began creating a detailed day of timeline. She was so gracious and understanding when we decided at the last minute to add a first look, revising with timeline without complaint.
On the day of, Krisy and her team went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! You always hear horror stories about wedding day mishaps, but I honestly have none to share. I’m sure there were some issues or setbacks that occurred; however, I’m not privy to them as Krisy took care of everything without ever needing to involve me! She and her team worked diligently to set up our numerous decorations and created the reception of my dreams! Additionally, thanks to her timeline, everyone (vendors, parents, wedding party) knew exactly where to be and when. My fiancé and I were able to enjoy getting ready and the ceremony/reception we had worked so hard to plan without worrying about any of the other details. Our wedding day is one that we’ll never forget and we cannot thank Krisy and the Southern Sparkle team enough. There is no way we could have accomplished half of what we envisioned without their assistance. The BEST decision we made!” Kayla S.
