HOW TO DO A WEDDING DAY COORDINATION
Helping the couple bring important things needed during the ceremony is the first thing we will never miss and taking the timeline on schedule hours before the wedding ceremony. We have to attend for the flowers of the entourage making sure all members have theirs and when everything was set gathering all we need, we now proceed to church.
make it a point that an hour before the ceremony begins wedding
coordinators are around attending to the guests especially the bridal
entourage, briefing them to just stay put at the back ready for the
line-up and normally fifteen minutes before the wedding starts, all
members of the entourage are assembled accordingly.
a sign will be given us to begin and one coordinator is in cue as the
procession begins making an unhurried flow with the right cadence. If
no church attendant is around near the altar to guide wedding
entourage on their respective seats, one will be assigned.
the offertory proceedings, ten minutes before the offering designated
ones to bring the gifts are ready for the walk and we have to see to
it that the line-up is in accordance to church preference.
then on, just minutes away wedding coordinators will be on their feet
to assist during the pictorial where bridal entourage and guests have
their turn during the photo session.
the recessional, we make sure that some guests and members of the
bridal entourage are gathered on the church entrance with petals on
their palms and two tubes of party poppers to be burst simultaneously
with petal throwing.
wedding coordinators, we must be the first to proceed to the
reception venue to attend to seat plan devised by the couple and
another coordinator assisting guests and bridal entourage to their
designated seats. Also, we make it a point to let one wedding
coordinator stay at the venue to anticipate guests who proceeded
straight to the reception.
when everybody is around, the wedding reception program commences
working hand-in-hand with the program host.
the meal because the couple has the help, the coordinators will
assist during the pictorial for the guests per table to join the
couple for souvenir shots before proceeding to the buffet table just
to ease congestion and to run things smoothly on the handle.
souvenirs, on the other hand are given during meal time when
everybody is seated and halfway during the program but guest book is
passed when guests are around on their seats and feeling comfortably.
during the climax of the program where a game is done for the bouquet
and garter ceremonies, wedding coordinators are on the go to gather
single ladies and single gentlemen to participate because for a
wedding celebration the more participants, the merrier.
the final thing to do before coordinators leave is to make sure that
everything is turned over to the couple. That will include
paraphernalia used during the ceremony, the guest book, extra
souvenirs, the food left for taking home, the suppliers’ fee are
settled and gifts ready to be brought home by the couple.
most of all, good memories are brought to last.
