Coordinators! What are they good for? Absolutely Everything!
One thing we get asked a lot by individuals who are wedding/big event planning is whether or not booking a coordinator is worth it or not. Here at The Hidden Porch we say ABSOLUTELY! Our main goal at The Hidden Porch is to make your special events as stress free as possible and coordinators do just that!
What is a day of coordinator?
A day of coordinator is an event vendor who you can hire to keep everything on track for you during your event. They are with you the entire time to make sure that your event is perfect and going according to the plan that you have set. Coordinators take almost everything off of your plate so that you can fully enjoy your time building memories with family and friends!
How can they help?
So many ways! A day of coordinator does what is needed to make your dreams come to life. They make sure everything is set up how you need it, including decor, food items, seating charts, cleanup and more. A coordinator can help you build a timeline, and help you and your guests stay on that timeline. They keep the schedule for all other vendors and will coordinate with them and act as a manager so that you can trust that your day will go by smoothly. After all, a team functions better with a leader!
How much do they cost?
Typically coordinators are independent contractors who set their own prices. Some have a set price for the day and others set an hourly rate based on what all you may need from them. In Oklahoma the average price of a day of coordinator is between 800$ and 2,000$.
Planning an event can be a stressful, time consuming, tiring thing. We get it! Coordinators are our best friends for that very reason. You deserve to spend your time at the event, that you worked so hard planning, enjoying it! A coordinators goal is to run your event so that you don’t have to. As always, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to us, and if you are planning an event at The Hidden Porch, don’t have a coordinator and want one, ask about our preferred vendor list so that you can get our Hidden Porch pricing!
