What is the difference between a Coordinator and a Wedding Planner?
A planner is typically working with you at the very beginning stages of your planning process to do just that, plan the wedding with you. They attend vendor meetings with you assisting in any decisions you need help with and handle all of the legwork. The will create your wedding vision with a customized vendor team that will meet your style, expectations, and budget. A planner takes away all the stresses that comes with wedding planning and allows you to just enjoy the fun parts, like saying "Yes to the Dress!"
A Day of Coordinator enters the timeline 2-3 weeks prior to the big day to ensure that your plans are executed exactly as expected! A DOC is perfect for that DIY couple who want to be free of the stresses the day-of brings.
My wedding venue offers an On-Site-Coordinator already, do I really need a DOC?
Simply put, absolutely! The reason why is because the venues day of coordinator doesn't actually work for you, they work for the venue. Which means they get pulled away numerous times to attend to staffing issues or maintenance concerns. If your ceremony happens to be off site, they will not be there with you. They are limited to what the venue will allow for them to be a part of during the wedding day and planning process.
When you hire a DOC they are employed by you, which means their time and attention is fully dedicated towards you and your event! You are their top priority and they will always have your best interest when coordinating the details.
Do I need extra help if my family and friends have already offered?
The quick reply to that question is to remind you that your bridal party and family are invited guests to your wedding. They should be able to enjoy the day, along with the rest of the attendees, enjoying great food and celebrating your love. The longer answer is much deeper. Are they reliable and able to think quick on their feet? Do they have the personality for it; organized, remain calm under pressure, have leadership skills?
One of the most important roles a coordinator provides is to protect the bride and groom from unneeded stress. Let us be the go to person for every unexpected hiccup and control the situation without missing a beat. Hiring a Day of Coordinator is assurance that you, and all your loved ones, will be able to enjoy the day to the fullest.
What happens at the beginning of the process when we contact you?

We’ll have an initial consultation where we get to know each other better and I’ll ask you a number of questions about your wedding before sending over a customized proposal
I don’t live in Las Vegas but want a destination wedding, how would we be able to work together?
Destination couples have to be one of my favorites because they’ll truly get to see their vision come to life the day of their wedding! I would say 70% of my couples are actually out of state. We’ll have multiple Facetime or Skype calls during my venue tours and vendor searching.
I like to let my couples know that I’ll be the eyes and ears they need in Vegas to make sure everything they want is being accommodated for. Communication is key when it comes to hiring a planner and being able to trust their abilities to make your vision come true and under your wants and needs.
What area do you service? Do you travel?
