Example of a wedding and reception;
3.00pm - Wedding Ceremony
4.00pm - Bar Opens - pre-dinner cocktails - Bride and Groom have photos taken - peak service time!
5.00pm - Cocktails service cease/standard bar service continues
6.30pm - Dinner commences
8.30pm - Cake Cutting
11.30pm - Bar closes
The behind the scene work for an event of this duration (which is a typical wedding duration) is quite extensive, and the more guests there is the more staff are required and the longer the prep and pack-down times. Whilst you may only need someone attending the bar for 5 hours, the questions have to be asked.... who is washing glassware, getting more ice, pre-chilling the beverages, restocking the tubs? Its all this and more that needs to be taken care of in a wedding.
WHAT DOES THE EVENT COORDINATOR DO?
Initial consultation with the bride and groom involves discussing budget, color scheme, theme, and other event logistics. Subsequent pre-wedding duties include consulting on the wedding party attire, ordering the cake, selecting flowers, securing a venue, contracting entertainment, choosing a menu and determining the décor for the ceremony and the reception. Mindful of the budget, a wedding planner negotiates the best possible prices from vendors. And when the day of the wedding arrives, you will see all of the hard work paying off. Nicole George Events wedding planner ensures that every detail is realized, as planned. Directing the pace of the wedding and the reception, coordinating the grand entrance at the reception, signaling the first dance and organizing the cutting of the wedding cake are all important duties of the wedding planner. The job of a wedding planner is not complete until the venue is clean, wedding gifts are loaded onto the assigned vehicle, and the last guest walks out the door.
This is essentially a job undertaken with the bride, groom and all involved in the wedding day from moment of engagement through to final thank-you cards. Please contact us directly for quote on an event coordinator for your wedding.
