What Does a Day-of Wedding Coordinator Do?
Have you ever been to a wedding where it was clear the couple could have used more help? Perhaps things were always running late, there was not enough staff or no one knew what they were doing. This looks bad on the bride and groom, and it definitely is not fun to be a guest at such a wedding watching the chaos. I have been to too many weddings where the couple clearly could have used a little extra help in executing their plans.
Nowadays, with wedding blogs and DIY books readily available, more and more couples are opting to plan their own wedding, but one thing is for sure—you cannot be the bride and groom and coordinate your wedding day!
For couples who have done all the planning for their wedding, a popular service is hiring a Day-Of Coordinator or Month-Of Coordinator to oversee the details.
It is sometimes referred to as “Month-Of” because the wedding coordinator will commence their services about 4 weeks prior to the wedding day. To get familiar with your wedding plans, usually 1-2 meetings are needed to go through the itinerary, take care of last minute details, and what has been discussed with vendors. No matter what the service is called, these meetings are vital to communicate your vision and expectations for your special day. Along with this preparation is having the wedding coordinator present at your wedding rehearsal, so that that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the ceremony.
On the wedding day, the main role of the Day-Of Coordinator is to ensure that your plans are carried out smoothly and to discreetly handle any problems that may arise. This also means you can arrive to a perfectly set up ceremony and reception, since your coordinator will have already arrived in advance to make sure it is set up properly. They are also the liaison with the venue, food manager, decorators, MC, DJ, photographer and parents; they pull the pieces of the puzzle together, ensure that everyone knows about timing (mainly so your food is cooked to perfection)!
We also have Event management with Partial wedding planning and full wedding planning packages available. Events by Parties N All specializes in space transformations, floor plans and event decor.
We also provide our own in-house staff (such as insured/certified bartenders, professional wait staff, captains, coat check and security for all raw spaces if needed.

We are so happy we hired Janeen!
If you want a wedding planner who will carry out your vision within your budget AND help you relax during the very stressful planning period, look no further. We had a fantastic experience working with Janeen, Jesse, and the rest of the staff at Parties N' All for our wedding at 26 Bridge this past December. We hired Janeen for 3 months of planning leading up to the wedding. Janeen knows the space so well and also has great relationships with plenty of local vendors. She listened to our wants and stepped in with her expertise to let us know when something would not work (we had a lot of very specific ideas about our wedding), but for everything that we really wanted Janeen figured out a way to make it happen. We had over 200 guests for a ceremony/cocktail hour/reception all in one big space and we simply would not have been able to plan or visualize everything without Janeen guiding us. Janeen is also great at calming nerves and making the couple feel that everything is under control - she is a true professional. She also provided us with waitstaff and a bartender for our rehearsal dinner and they were top notch. Hire Janeen!

SO glad we hired Parties' N All
We weren't sure if we needed a day of coordinator, but are so so so happy we hired Parties N' All! Janeen and her team was recommended by our venue's manager (Dumbo Loft in BK).
We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with. Janeen, Jesse and Rich were AMAZING - especially during those frantic phone calls where it felt like the sky was caving in.
We were incredibly detailed about some things (welcome table, guest tables, alter) and had no idea what to do about others (bar setup, walking down an aisle.. without an aisle) - and no matter what, Parties N' All was there to support and guide us through it all.
I would hire them again in a heartbeat!
Janeen and her team were the greatest partners a girl could ask for! Book them and plan for a successful event!
