Do your wedding attendants know their duties? - Part 3

You have so many people that are there to help take some of the weight off your shoulders and make your wedding day one to remember. To make sure that you have the right help when you need it, it is important to let your wedding attendants know what their duties are. First, you need to know the responsibilities of your attendants for yourself, so that they can take direction from you and tend to what they will be most helpful with for your big day.

So far we have discussed quite a few of the responsibilities that fall on your wedding attendant’s shoulders, after all, they are there to love and support you. Your wedding day can be a stressful day when you are playing hostess, so making sure that everyone is in the right place at the right time, and also making sure that you do your part perfectly, will allow your big day to move smoothly.

Here at I Thee Wed, our goal is to provide as much information to our couples as possible, so that they can plan their day with ease, which is why we have gathered more of the top wedding attendants and their duties, so be sure to continue reading for some great tips:

·         Mother of the Bride. Your mom has been there since day one, helping you with whatever you needed, and she will continue to do so up until the moment you exit your wedding. By serving as an assistant, modifying your guest list when needed, acting as your personal cheerleader and of course reminding you how beautiful you look, your mother will be handling a multitude of tasks on your big day.
·         Mother of the Groom. Put those silly “monster in law” stereotypes aside, and allow your future mother-in-law to help you and your partner pull off the best wedding ever! Not only will the Groom’s mother help you, but she will also help your mother as well with all of her tasks. Also, do not forget that your partner’s mother has her shining moment too, during the mother/son dance at your wedding reception.
·         Ushers. When you hear the word “usher”, you might think of those strangers that appear when you or your guests need to find a seat, or if they have questions that need answered, and you are correct! The main role of an usher is escorting your guests to their seats before the wedding ceremony, but they also help your groomsmen with their ushering duties as well, so that no guest is left in need. This position would be a great way to get more guests involved, such as those pre-teen family members that want to help out. 

Quite a few brides do not even realize that their wedding attendants have responsibilities, and it is likely that the wedding attendants themselves do not even realize they had a role to play too. When planning your wedding, it is important that you take every aspect into consideration, which is why I Thee Wed would love to help you plan your big day, so that no details are missed. If you are beginning to plan your wedding, be sure to contact us today, as we would love to bring your greater Cincinnati area big day dreams to life.

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
