Provide your bridesmaids with a special “getting ready” experience

Bridesmaids are the ladies you have chosen to stand beside you on one of the biggest days of your life, your wedding day. Naturally, you will want to show them your appreciation, and what better way to do that than by providing gifts and a fun environment as you all prepare for your walk down the aisle?!

From the time you awake until the moment you say “I Do”, you should plan on being quite occupied. Hair, make-up and Mimosas should be filling your time as you primp and pamper yourself, however, don’t forget that your bridesmaids will also be accompanying you as well as being dolled up themselves.

Seeing as the process to get ready can take quite a few hours, you should definitely personalize this experience for you and your ladies. Make this a fun an unforgettable occasion by implementing some creative ideas, take a look:

·         Personalized Tank Tops. Your bridesmaids need to be wearing something throughout the day before they put on their gorgeous dresses, and what better option than a personalized tank top? Offer them a fun shirt that they can keep for years to come in remembrance of your big day.
o   From “Bridesmaid” to their names, you have many options as to what you can print on their shirts. “Maid of Honor”, a fun nickname or even photos of you two together are all potential options.
·         Makeup Bags. Create unique makeup bags personalized for each of your ladies. From their favorite lipstick, to their most effective hairspray, they will surely love the gift! What girl doesn’t love beauty products?!
o   The makeup bags can also be considered “emergency bridal kits”, (you never know what you might need on your wedding day). Include some bobby pins, band aids and even a sewing kit to make sure you are prepared for any beauty blunders that could occur.

·         Customized Hangers. Display your bridesmaids dresses on hangers that are customized just for them. The wire can be twisted and turned to spell out their name, or simply just “bridesmaid” if you prefer, which will make for a fun and creative idea that they can keep forever.
o   From different colored wires to the font style you choose, you have may options as to how these hangars can appear. Glam them up a bit with glitter, flowers or bling to provide an even more personalized look.

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing. Photo Credit: Estes Images Here are some reasons why a wedding coordinator shouldn't show up  only  on the wedding day: Many planners begin their coordination services 4-8 weeks out because many venues request the wedding day timeline one month prior. A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

Ask if they will be w
