4 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Wedding Coordinator

Weddings are one of life’s great milestones. It will go by in a heartbeat and you deserve to enjoy every last second of it. There is so much that goes into the planning process and execution of a wedding. Everyone deserves to have a flawless wedding day of their dreams and we think hiring a Wedding Coordinator is the best way to make that happen. Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a professional coordinator: 
  • You don’t have time to plan a wedding. 

So you have your dream wedding in mind. Your Pinterest boards are full of pins, your Instagram is overrun with wedding hashtags, you have a vision and you’re sticking with it. Aside from popular belief, a coordinator does not mean you are outsourcing your wedding (this one’s for you fellow control freaks). A coordinator acts as your support system to help out in whatever way they can. They can do anything from day-of coordination up to planning the whole shebang. A professional coordinator knows your taste and style and is able to help with whatever decisions you need help with. 

  • Day-of time-line execution. 

The successful execution of your wedding day relies upon coordination of many wedding professionals. A professional coordinator knows what is expected of each vendor and can create a timeline that keeps your goals in mind. 

Let’s face it, anyone can create a wedding timeline.  Type in a quick Google search, change some info around and voila! You have a Timeline! More importantly than creating the timeline is the EXECUTION of the timeline. A great professional coordinator acts as a superhuman force to be reckoned with on wedding day (and trust me, you need this person)! By meeting with you and knowing what is important to you, they don’t mind saying NO to a pushy guest or turning the Broncos game off in the Man Cave because it’s time for the guys to line up. A professional coordinator will keep everything on track and everyone in check on wedding day! 

  • A professional wedding coordinator can actually save you money.

Although it seems that hiring a wedding planner is counterintuitive, it can actually help save you money in the long run. Your wedding coordinator will work with you to set a budget and then help you stick to it, stretching your dollar as far as it will go. By understanding what is important to you, a planner can help cut items that aren’t important to you. Additionally, planners typically have special relationships with vendors so they can help get you the best deal in town while also providing you with reliable companies that you can trust. 

  • You deserve to be 100% present for your wedding day.

This reason is my favorite. A wedding is one of life’s most important milestones and you need to enjoy it. There is a lot of build up to the wedding day. You spend months (or years!) planning every single detail to create a perfect day. Why not invest in someone who can free you from every responsibility other than drinking in every moment of that day? This is your day! You don’t want to have to act as the go-to person for day-of issues and questions that inevitably come up. Hiring an experienced wedding planner allows you and all of your loved ones to live in the moment, watching your wedding day unfold beautifully as your planner works behind the scenes to keep all the wheels turning.  


Hiring a professional wedding planner will allow you to relax and soak it all in. Additionally, hiring a planner that is knowledgeable about your venue will also help with flawless day-of execution. Here are some local planners that from our recommendation list (email us for a full list):
