The wedding day is undoubtedly one of the few special days in your life. You should plan to do it once, and do it right! Planning a wedding can be a tricky business. No wonder why people avoid this headache by employing the services of a wedding planner. You would not want the memories of such day to haunt you forever, as a result of bad planning.
So, let’s do the work of a wedding planner together here, as we thoroughly examine 6 important elements that make a wedding day unforgettable. :)
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, being a wedding photographer means that sometimes I end up playing other roles as well, a coordinator being one of them. However, I can not be everywhere at once. This is where a day-of-wedding coordinator comes in.
1) Having an experienced person running the show gives you peace of mind.
I have seen firsthand the results of brides having relatives or friends attempt to juggle the tasks a wedding coordinator. They end up feeling overwhelmed, and they are not able to enjoy the wonderful experience a guest should have at a wedding. For your wedding, you need someone who knows exactly what they are doing so that your big day is free of any hiccups or worries about things going wrong.
2) You'll have more time to spend with your guests.
Nothing is more stressful for the bride than constantly being called away every twenty minutes to fix yet another problem. Having a wedding coordinator means you don't have to lose time chatting and spending time with the ones you love.
3) No wrangling.
Leaving this task to a friend or relative is absolutely out of the question. When it is time to take group photos or have the maid of honor do her toast, no one wants to spend half an hour trying to find the missing persons. Your day-of-wedding coordinator will have everything well in hand; after all, it is their job to know where everyone is and have them at the right place at the right time. Leave the wrangling to the expert, and you won't have unnecessary stress, and neither will your guests.
4) Assist bride with putting on her wedding gown.
This can be very difficult to do, especially when the wedding dress is bulky or has multiple layers. Although family and friends can help the bride into her dress, adjusting all the little details to make sure it's put on correctly is sometimes over their heads. The wedding coordinator will help ease the process, making sure it is not time-consuming or stressful for the bride.
5) Making sure the dance floor is clear.
You want that first dance to be a glowing special moment. All eyes are on you as you gaze lovingly into your partner's eyes. The last thing you need are misbehaving children tripping you up or stomping around you, ruining this moment. The wedding coordinator will keep the dance floor clear and make sure that everyone, including the little ones, are respectful of this precious moment.
While I am capturing the precious moments of the bride and groom's big day, the wedding coordinator is orchestrating the smooth flow of events from behind the scenes. The day-of-wedding coordinator is an essential addition to your bridal team.
Here are five reasons not to skimp on your coordinator budget:
Zaručnički prsten je na prstu, a planiranje vjenčanja je već počelo? Nakon što odredite datum, željene uzvanike trebate na vrijeme upoznati sa terminom. Prvi korak: pošaljite "Save the Date".
Originalno, Save the Date je jedna vrsta predpozivnice. Na taj način dragim osobama dajete do znanja da su pozvani na vjenčanje te da unaprijed rezerviraju termin, dok će pravu pozivnicu sa više detalja dobiti naknadno.
Za one mladence kojima je to previše posla i gnjavaže, prijedlog su personalizirane pozivnice koje sadrže fotografije sa zaručničkog ili save the date fotografiranja.
Jedna takva pozivnica je nastala za vjenčanje Renate i Josipa koje će uskoro održati. Napravili smo kratko fotkanje (rezultat pogledajte ovdje), a ekipa iz Paulina dizajna je uz Renatine želje i sugestije složila preslatku personaliziranu pozivnicu.
Prilično mi je teško sjetiti se našeg prvog zajedničkog projekta... Marija i ja smo surađivale na mnogo modnih, portretnih i vjenčanih snimanja. Pripremila sam neke najdraže fotografije sa tih snimanja, a on je pripremila neke savjete i jedan mali giveaway.
It is really hard for me to remember our first project... Marija and I did many fashion, portrait and wedding shootings together. I have prepared some of my favorite work with her. Scroll down to find some useful makeup tips and a little giveaway that Marija prepared.
I have just popped in a great article with marriage advices from Gerald Rogers, newly divorced motivational speaker. I believe this advices are great and I sure agree with every single one. Although it is written like "advices him to her", it is usable other way too.
Take a minute and read what Gerald have to say...
"Obviously, I’m not a relationship expert, but there’s something about my divorce being finalized this week that gives me perspective of things I wish I would have done different...After losing a woman that I loved, and a marriage of almost 16 years, here’s the advice I wish I would have had...."
