*I'd love to hear from both sides, those who hired a coordinator and those who did not.
My mother and I recently got into a small tiff over whether I should hire a coordinator.
I've worked in event coordinating, so I am very familiar with the nuances and minute details of planning an event. Because of this, I cannot justify paying someone to do it for me. My mother (who is only paying for catering services), on the other hand, is convinced I need a coordinator. Is it worth it for my event?
I'll have about 100 guests, but it is going to be a lowkey Sunday afternoon wedding in a local botanical garden with a dinner reception (full-service catering) following at the same venue. I have six bridesmaids comprised of: two floral designers, a secretary, and three teachers — perhaps the most organized crew a girl could ask for. With that being said, they have all assumed that we are tackling this event together, so they are not expecting to sit back and relax.
