Today’s blog is the perfect read for couples who are wondering whether they should hire a wedding coordinator and whether the expense is worth it!
After all of the blood, sweat and tears you’ve put into planning your wedding, it’s understandable that you’d want the plans to come together perfectly! For most couples, planning a wedding takes a lot of time and money, so it’s essential that your wedding runs smoothly and that your vision is bought to life precisely how you imagined.
At One Curious Dream, we provide professional, award-winning wedding coordination services to couples who are getting married across London, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge and Essex. But what exactly is a Wedding Coordinator, and why should you consider hiring one?
Well, firstly, it’s worth mentioning that a wedding coordination service is perfectly suited to couples who have chosen to get married in a dry-hire wedding venue. It may be that your wedding is taking place in a beautiful rustic barn, or perhaps you’re hosting a marquee wedding or tipi wedding on private land. The common thread of a dry-hire wedding venue is that there will not be a wedding venue coordinator attached to the venue, which means you’ll be granted access to the space, and from there, the rest of your wedding plans are up to you. Unlike a traditional wedding venue, there won’t be anybody on-site to manage your day, take care of any last-minute jobs or deal with any issues as they arise.
Whilst hosting a dry-hire wedding offers heaps of freedom and flexibility, there’s a tremendous amount of work involved as you’ll be hiring all of your wedding suppliers separately – no wedding packages here!
As your wedding day approaches, it can feel very overwhelming; after all, this style of wedding creates a lot of work! So, hiring a wedding coordinator can help ensure you have a stress-free build-up to your wedding, safe in the knowledge that an experienced wedding coordinator will manage the logistics of your wedding on the day.
At One Curious Dream, our wedding coordinator will work with you in the last few weeks before your wedding to add a professional touch to your wedding plans. They’ll review the plans you’ve made, identify any gaps or areas that are concerning and help you find a solution to fix any problems. They’ll check through and advise you on your timings and schedule of events and from there, will become the main point of contact for your wedding suppliers. They’ll then be with you on the wedding day itself to ensure your plans come together and to step in and manage any unforeseen events that might crop up.
Our wedding coordination service ensures you can relax and look forward to your wedding – who wouldn’t want that?! Working with your own One Curious Dream Professional Wedding Coordinator will take the stress away and leave you to relax, safe in the knowledge that we’ll take excellent care of your wedding. Here’s what one of our couples, Amy and Sam, had to say about hiring a wedding coordinator:
“We decided to hire a wedding coordinator from One Curious Dream as we were panicking that we would have to deal with and direct suppliers on our wedding day. We chose to get married in a lovely barn in Norfolk, but aside from having somebody at the barn to liaise with about the booking, we didn’t receive any support throughout the wedding planning stages. As the wedding grew closer, we know that we didn’t want to be worrying about the little jobs on the day, but also, we wanted to make sure the plans we had made run smoothly. Neither of us had planned a wedding before so we did our best, but just wanted some professional input too. The team at One Curious Dream were amazing and Jo was honestly like our own wedding fairy godmother!. We’d highly recommend One Curious Dream to anybody and if you’re getting married in a venue without a wedding coordinator, we’d recommend you hire one!”
