With the advent of the internet, social networking, and such sites as Pinterest, it's no wonder that most girls have already planned their dream wedding down to the color of the tablecloths and the font for the invitations! And day-of wedding planning isn't limited to telling you when to walk down the aisle. You have the vision and did most of the preliminary work for the wedding, but now who is going to come in and let you be the BRIDE?
Day of coordinating is just that -- I specialize in making sure the plans you have made for the day run smoothly, however, I can do much, much more, it all just depends on what you need.
A sampling of what I can do for you on your wedding day:
Create the timeline starting from the rehearsal to the send-off at the reception
Contact vendors, sharing the timeline and checking on arrival times
Orchestrate the rehearsal
Coordinate with photographer to make sure all the pictures you want taken get taken
Keep bridal party on schedule
Help groomsmen with their tuxes, tie ties, pin on boutineers, keep them on schedule
Help bridesmaids with shoes, run to CVS for right color lipstick
Bring sandwich tray to salon during hair/make-up session
Check to make sure the vendors have arrived and have everything they need
Make sure we don't start ceremony until all family arrives
Make sure DJ or band knows how to pronounce your newlywedded last name
Keep the reception timeline flowing
WHATEVER YOU NEED and WHATEVER IT TAKES so you and everyone with you has FUN!

Heather was amazing! She really understood our vision and was able to give suggestions. She knows the St Simons wedding vendors and community really well. We didn't live near the area and she was very flexible with meeting times for phone conversations. Her responses are quick- especially via text. If you chose Heather as your planner, you will not go wrong.Sent on 06/19/2018

Island Day Weddings was amazing! She made everything at my wedding go so smoothly. We had a small ceremony followed by a larger reception at a house we rented on the island. Heather was so great to help my mom with some of the running around before the reception in order for my mom to enjoy the wedding! Thank you so much Heather!Sent on 06/06/2018

Heather is WONDERFUL! I could never have done it without her. She took care of everything--even the 20 things I texted her the morning of the wedding. It is hard for me to relinquish control, but quickly I saw that she was going to handle everything I needed her to do and anything that might arise. Many people I found via this site have a "canned" approach to day of coordination and tell you what they will do. Heather takes a different approach. She finds out what you want her to do to help you and then together you work out a timeline for the day. She is so personable and professional. With her calming manner, she took so much stress off me the day of rehearsal and the wedding day. You cannot find anyone better to provide day of coordination for your wedding. She is the absolute best!Sent on 10/17/2017

Heather is a joy...an absolute joy and I know that both as a wedding professional and as the mother of the bride. She's a powerhouse of energy and she'll do whatever it takes to keep your day running the way it should.
