Top 5 Rea­sons you NEED a Wed­ding Coordinator

One of the most fre­quently asked ques­tions we get at Lesner Inn is, should I hire a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor? No mat­ter if we are meet­ing with some­one who’s a pro­fes­sional brides­maid, has a well-​organized maid of honor, or is even a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor them­selves the answer will always be YES!! A wed­ding coor­di­na­tor, who isn’t on your guest list, will make your wed­ding day 100% stress free. We’re here to tell you why you absolutely need a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor for the day of your wed­ding!

A wed­ding coor­di­na­tor, not to be con­fused with a plan­ner, will ensure that every­thing you have planned and pre­pared for your wed­ding day is exe­cuted per­fectly from start to fin­ish. This means coor­di­nat­ing with each of your ven­dors to ensure that they are pro­vid­ing exactly what you were expect­ing. They will make sure that all of your ven­dors have a full under­stand­ing of the vision of your wed­ding and that they work together to accom­plish it!

2. Get­ting down the aisle
The hours before the cer­e­mony can be extremely chaotic at times. Between get­ting any late guests to take their seats, round­ing up fam­ily mem­bers for the pro­ces­sional, and mak­ing sure not to spoil the first look between you and your fiancé there is a lot to take care of! These tasks should be des­ig­nated to a pro­fes­sional wed­ding coor­di­na­tor that will be present up until you walk down the aisle.

3. What if?
Some­thing that we can safely say will haunt any cou­ple before their wed­ding day are the end­less “what if” sce­nar­ios. What if the cake doesn’t show up? What if my DJ goes miss­ing? What if my bus­tle breaks? The sce­nar­ios are end­less. Your wed­ding coor­di­na­tor not only takes the nec­es­sary steps to pre­vent any of these sce­nar­ios from hap­pen­ing, but will go to any lengths nec­es­sary to fix them if they do!

4. You’re not wear­ing a watch
One of the things we can guar­an­tee that you won’t be doing on your wed­ding day is keep­ing track of the time. That’s where your coor­di­na­tor comes in. Your wed­ding coor­di­na­tor will make sure that you are stay­ing on sched­ule, so that you have enough time to hit the dance floor with your besties on your wed­ding day!

5. Set up and break-​down
Prob­a­bly one of the most tedious tasks on your wed­ding day is set­ting up and break­ing down décor. One of the great­est things about a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor is that they take care of this for you! At the end of the night, your coor­di­na­tor will bring every­thing to a des­ig­nated vehi­cle so all you have to worry about is get­ting it home!

We’ve seen so many cou­ples boast about how orga­nized they are and how many wed­dings they’ve been involved in, but no mat­ter how true this may be we will never stop rec­om­mend­ing hir­ing a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor. No bride or groom wants to be respon­si­ble for the “what if” sce­nar­ios on their wed­ding day, and they shouldn’t have to be! A wed­ding coor­di­na­tor is a small price to pay for a very nec­es­sary ser­vice.
