You have already booked vendors for your Bali wedding and just need a coordinator for on the day only? You are probably more familiar with the term “Day of Coordination” but honestly that does not really exist.
Although you have already booked all vendors and discussed what you want on the wedding day, it is impossible to hire a wedding organizer / planner to work only on the wedding day in order to make sure everything shorted and the wedding run based on your contract with vendors.
When couple ask for a coordination just on the wedding day to coordinate all vendors to work based on contracts and managing the timeline, actually we will work at least from one month prior the wedding or starting from the day couple signing our contract. By choosing our Wedding Management services, we will manage all aspect of your wedding starting from reviewing all of your decor details, the number of guests, type of layout and other details before meeting with all of the vendors to confirm the services and finalize the timing.
Rundown or timeline for ceremony and reception should be prepared in at least one month before the wedding day which include the arrival time of each vendor, contact person and their phone number in case we need it on the wedding day, setup time for each vendors, menu and beverages detail, order of the processional, music choices, seating arrangement and prepare for plan B.
We will also need to attend the final walk through with copies of timelines printed for all vendors at the meeting which takes place at the wedding venue approximately two week to one month prior to the wedding day. After we are done with this meeting, we need to update the timelines and review them with the wedding couple then confirm and send the final timelines to everyone one or two weeks prior to the wedding day.
Confirm details and send final timelines to all the vendors one to two weeks prior to the wedding day. The sooner they have the timeline, the easier they can plan for the wedding day. They might also have something missing or change or have any other input after the meeting so we need to rearrange the timelines.
Closer to the date we will need to arrange and attend the ceremony rehearsal. This is usually the day prior to the wedding to make sure we know how the bridal party will line up and walk down the aisle, who will escort the parents and when the music will stop, finalizing the vows with the officiant/ celebrant or priest, collecting all items from the wedding couple such us name tag, cards, souvenirs, etc and remind all vendors for all the needs for the next day.
On the wedding day we prepare the checklist include all the items that the couple have given us, work together with all vendors based on the timelines and and make sure vendors provide services based on the contract.
Our fee for Wedding Management services is depends on the size of event and the difficulties of arrangement include the layout, decoration, vendors and many more.
