·         Step 1: Decide what you need. We have created an easy to follow list of questions for you to answer, which will allow you to learn how many songs you need for your wedding ceremony, as well as any additional music that should be incorporated. By the end of this list, you will know just the amount of songs that you need to choose:
o   1. Will you be seating any family members?
§  Most often, this refers to the seating of parents and grandparents
§  It is recommended that you use the same song as the attendants if only one or two people are going to be seated
o   2. Will the groom walk down the aisle?
§  Often times, the groom will either walk down the aisle, or appear at the front of the ceremony altar
o   3. Will the bridesmaids and groomsmen walk down the aisle?
§  Traditionally, the bridesmaids and groomsmen walk down the aisle together, however, they can walk separately or appear at the ceremony altar awaiting the arrival of the bride
o   4. How many attendants will be walking down the aisle?
o   5. Will you be having a flower girl or ring bearer?
§  Your flower girl and ring bearer can walk down the aisle together or separate
o   6. Will there be a special moment in the wedding ceremony, such as communion or a unity candle that will require special music?

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.

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.
