First Client Panic Is Setting In…

day of coordination guide for wedding planners, day of coordination for planners, how to coordinate a wedding

I remember standing in the Chick-fil-A parking lot, on my lunch break; convincing my first client she could trust me with her wedding. I was elated when she said yes, but the feeling of joy quickly abandoned me, leaving only panic to set in.

Now what? What do I do next? What do I do at our meeting before the big day? What information do I need to execute this wedding with excellence?

Utter panic, craziness, and lots of Google searching ensued! I learned a LOT of lessons the hard way at that wedding, and the next, and the next… And, well – you get the picture.

 

I created my Day Of Coordination Guide For Wedding Planners, as the resource I wish I had at my fingertips as I started booking my first clients. It is my hope that the content shared in this guide will make your journey a bit easier and more enjoyable!
