Day-of-Wedding Coordinator

I never thought I would coordinate a wedding.
But I am.
We decided to offer the Day-of-Coordinator as a way for Tammy to earn some extra cash.
At $625, it's well worth it.
But, Tammy has been a bit afraid to step into this role ... so I did!

My first go at it was last week.
Jordyn Poellot.  Her mom, Sherri, is a friend from Ridgeline.
Sherri wanted to hire a planner, but didn't want to pay much.
She offered $400.
It was a very last minute thing ... and she had lots of people helping.
So, I didn't do much.
I helped with set-up, directed the ceremony, checked on the food table, collected some trash, and locked the Barn.

As the wedding fell on Father's Day ... and it was hot ... the party ended early.
We took our $400 and went out to dinner to celebrate Steve.

Then, I had another one yesterday, June 26th.
The Maddock wedding.
It was a shot-gun wedding, with the planning time less than a month.
The MOB lives in Texas and was concerned that we wouldn't get it all done.
She hired Spice of Life.  They took care of most of the details.
I simply helped a bit.  Truly, very little.
I did keep the schedule flowing.
I locked the Barn.

It's a fun job - and easy work to earn a quick $1025.

I have one more scheduled for August 28th.
It's a fun addition to our little business ... and makes facilitating weddings even more fun for me.


  1. Good to know about your experience of being a wedding coordinator. I have arranged weddings for my cousin and couple of friends. Couple of months ago, arranged ring ceremony of one of my best friends at an iconic event venue Chicago. Everyone loved my arrangements!
