Hey beautiful friends,


I would like to know, who are your go to people on your wedding day? Meaning, who will be seeing to it that guests know where to go when they arrive, vendors being greeted and showed around, any questions or concerns that guests may need to be addressed, because as the bride or groom, we'll probably be too busy to handle things like that on the big day!


Coordinator?

Best Man?

MOH?

A bridesmaid or groomsmen?

A parent?

Anyone else? Would love to know what you lovely people have planned!

    For us it was our wedding planner and her 2 assistants. We also had a dedicated event coordinator at our venue that helped as well.

    Wow, that seems really helpful! I wish we could afford a wedding planner, but it's out of our budget as it stands. That is super awesome that worked out for you!!

    We're having a coordinator to handle everything but we will also be having two ushers to help people find seats at the ceremony

    Our venue came with a day of coordinator who dealt with vendors and kept us on time. It was great because literally all I had to think about on our wedding day was getting dressed and getting married. Other than that, I gave my brother all of the tips to give out to the people who worked the wedding because we did not want to have to think about that.

    I have no idea! I’m hoping people will step up because I don’t want it all to fall on MOH.

    My DOC is in charge of all of that. I’m happy to have a pro handling it!

    Our venue also comes w/ a DOC - she will be handling a majority of these tasks.

    We have a DOC included but we may need to ask someone to help out because our venue parking is across the street kiddie corner and people CAN NOT park on the street or the other 2 parking lots (that belong to other nearby places- a church and I forget the other thing) and they suggest having someone in charge of making sure to kinda "watch out" and go gentle let people know where parking is if they try parking in front. If the DOC is busy guiding people to seating, where the guest book is, where gifts/cards go if anyone brings any, etc. Then she may be too busy to deal with the parking, too. Although I hate asking anyone to "work" so I'm not sure what we'll do. Hopefully everyone will read the wedding website/included parking info and map and with a sign or two they can figure it out lol.

    Yeah, I hear where you're coming from, Laura! I was thinking about making my MOH my go to person as well, because she is very mature and organized, but at the same time, I don't want to overwhelm her.

    A day-of-coordinator seems to be a popular trend, and a good investment! But having it included in your venue is even more of a plus! Yeah, you would totally benefit from having a second pair of hands to help your guests with potential parking issues

    Mine will be my FH’s brothers girlfriend! It’s important to us that she’s at the wedding, but we didn’t want any bridesmaids and groomsmen to have to worry about this while they were getting ready for the wedding! My aunt will be helping as well!

    I’d like her to enjoy the wedding too, not feel like she’s working.

    I think many venues are possibly starting to including them now, or so it sounds like from everyone's replies! I'd skip it if it wasn't included to save some money so I totally get that, too.

    My aunt is going to be my day of coordinator! She’s a full-time event planner so she was the perfect person for me to choose! 😊 her daughter is one of my bridesmaids so she was going to be around a lot anyways!
