WHY DO YOU NEED A DAY OF/MONTH OF COORDINATOR?

BECAUSE

YOU DESERVE TO HAVE A FABULOUS WEDDING AND BE ABLE TO ENJOY IT.





In order to cut cost, couples sometimes have their wedding party, family or parents setup/breakdown and act as their coordinator for the day. This means they cannot enjoy your wedding and since they are not professionals (they do this for a living) there are many details they may not take care of or know how to handle. This is why you should consider hiring someone to take care of easing your stress for the day so your family can enjoy your wedding.



Below are just a FEW of the benefits are:
Meet with you to discuss your event and collect any paperwork Follow up via email to ensure all of your vendors have been hired Meet with you (or phone consultation) to discuss final details and to go over the schedule Assist with the reception layout Give professional feedback on your selected décor/colors Contact your wedding vendors for final wedding information/confirmation Create a detailed itinerary for your vendors and wedding party and distribute to them via email. Email your wedding party (if applicable) their wedding duties Coordinate and direct the wedding rehearsal Coordinate with your vendors and make sure they arrive on time Assist bride with putting on her wedding gown Communicate with your wedding party to make sure they are on time Communicate with Transportation driver Setup ceremony items such as guest book, candles, etc Assist/Execute proper setup of your reception items (includes pictures, escort cards, diy centerpieces, etc) Direct the wedding ceremony processional and recessional Aid in clearing the church or ceremony venue of your wedding guest so wedding party photography can start Assist photographer in gathering the wedding party for pictures Coordinate with your Band or DJ the Grand Entrance and all Reception formalities Ensure your videographer and Photographer are always ready to capture you Make sure the bride and groom are served Ensure reception flow is maintained Guide Bride and Groom through the reception Distribute final gratuities to vendors (if the Bestman does not) Pack your gifts into allocated persons car Coordinate Grand Departure

Ivy was awesome! I wasn't convinced that I needed a day of coordinator but if Ivy wasn't there our wedding would have been a mess. She is professional and organized and assertive enough to control a large drunk wedding party! If it weren't for Ivy we would have no photos from our wedding because our minister didn't want any. But she worked with the minister and photographer to make a compromise. I would recommend Ivy to every friend! We only had her for the day but the planning process would have been so smooth if we would have used her as a planner. Well worth the money!

Being the Type A person that I am, it's really hard to relinquish control to others especially when it comes to something as big as a wedding. However, from the first initial meeting I had with Ivy I knew she was the right person to coordinate our wedding day. Ivy's professionalism and organization is impeccable and she's amazing at making sure every intricate detail is addressed. In the moments I felt like I was losing it, Ivy had a Plan A, B, and C and does a great job at putting your worries to ease. Thank you so much Ivy for your amazing talent and for being a part of our day!

Where do I begin? Ivy was a god send. She put me with the very best vendors to help my vision become a reality. Very professional from start to finish. She was very honest with me when I asked her opinions about certain things because I had no idea what I was doing. I absolutely love her. She made me feel like a friend instead of a client. Our wedding day was everything we expected and so much more. She was all about business and she played no games. If anything went wrong I didn't know it. She made our day so very special and for that I can't say thank you enough. If you are in need of a planner who will get the job done you will not be disappointed with this lady. Hands down the best of the best!!!

Ms. Ivy is the best wedding planner in Charlotte. When I first met her she was very personable but I knew she was business which made me feel so good since I was getting married in a state I did not reside. I got married on July 4th in Charlotte and it was the most beautiful, well organized wedding I could have ever dreamed of. She did a wonderful job with all of the other vendors and her presence made me feel comfortable that my wedding was going to be just as I imagined it. I had no stress and no worries because I knew she had it. BEST wedding planner ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Ivy and her team (Tina was our other day-of coordinator). She is professional, kind, patient, and a great shot-caller. We would not have had a successful day without her. Ivy started working with my vendors about a month out, and was in constant communication with me and with them. We have recommended Ivy to family and friends. She is simply a delight and runs a tight ship! Thank you for everything, Silk Veil!

Are you overwhelmed with Wedding Planning? Call Ivy! It will be the best money you will spend planning your wedding. Delia and I had a day wedding and knew we needed a Day of Coordinator to manage us and our vendors. Ivy provide us with advice on vendors and made sure we were on track to having everything ready for the big day. She is extremely professional and organized. She has great relationships with the vendors and worked with everyone to ensure the wedding went smoothly. Ivy also had great ideas for using the decorations we had purchased for the reception. When we arrived at the venue, everything was ready and the reception area was decorated beautifully. She understood our vision for the wedding and made it come true. It was a perfect day with no worries due to Ivy and her team. Just do it! Call Ivy! You will not be disappointed.

She made sure everything went off without a hitch. The party was perfect and I had no stress because everything was taken care of. She is an excellent planner and has great quality of work. However, her attitude towards my other vendors was unnecessary. She insulted every person I had there volunteering to help. My guests commented how rude she was over and over again. My entire bridal party was insulted as well. She has great potential if she will lose the attitude. Her assistant was wonderful and so sweet! So thankful for her!

The Silk Veil Events by Ivy responded with the following comments:

I wanted to thank you for your kind words. My assistant also thanks you. Now to reply to the 2nd half of your review. Wedding Wire only allows 2000 characters so I had to condense this reply. The facts are as follows:
*WE WERE HIRED AS YOUR DAY OF COORDINATOR. We ended up as your caterer. You choose to have food delivered so I spent the day setting up flatware, glassware, dishes, chaffing dishes in the main room and kitchen, staging, setting up cocktail hour, setting up the bar, serving, cleaning, etc. PLUS doing my job as a Day of Coordinator*WE WERE HIRED FOR 8 HOURS, time to start at 3:30. Our day actually started at 11am due to the high volume of things to take care. Do you think you wedding would have gone off without a hitch if I started at the allotted time?*WE WERE PROMISED 2 MAIN ASSISTANTS AND A FEW FAMILY MEMBERS TO ASSIST. Only one of the two arrived and the one that did arrive was late. By the time this person showed up we setup everything! This person was supposed to replenish food and serve during cocktail hour. This did not happen, as this person was MIA. This person was suppose to work on the food line, this person was too busy in and out of the kitchen. A vendor’s daughter actually stepped in to help. The other “assistants” that you refer to as vendors were dressed in cocktail dresses and ill equipped to assist without getting dirty. IN CONCLUSION: We did the job of 5. *YOUR GUEST AND WEDDING PARTY FELT THEY COULD ENTER THE KITCHEN ALL NIGHT. This is a liability. *YOUR GUEST WAS INTOXICATED DUE TO THE OPEN SELF-SERVE BAR. Many could not even walk. Enough Said on that topic. • PLEASE NOTE: We love constructive criticism. We cannot improve or grow without it. As I told you on the phone and email, A vague comment or review is useless without detail which you refuse to give. Thank you for the experience. I have updated my contract to make sure this does not happen again.

Ivy/Silk Veil Events was amazing. My fiance and I hired The Silk Veil about year away from our wedding to help us find vendors and to help us design our wedding. Ivy helped us find our caterer, officiant, florist, dj, lighting and my super amazing make-up artist in addition to helping us come with ideas for the style and look of our wedding. Between her and our florist (April's Floral Expressions) the wedding was even more than what we wanted.

Day of coordination was amazing. If you can't do full or partial wedding planning - do the day of coordination. She kept everyone on schedule and focused. The wedding went off without a hitch. If you ask her to make sure no one uses cell phones or other forms of technology - you will not see a cell phone, iPhone, iPad, iWhatever in the room. She even walked my husband and I through what we needed to do to make sure our cake cutting photos/video came out well. She stayed on top of our bar situation (we had a host bar) to let us know when we were close to maxing out our budget; she found ziploc bags for leftover food because I forgot to buy takeout boxes.

I took of my shoes on the dancefloor to move around better, she came and got them. I know I'm missing things - but she just made the day go by so smoothly. All of my guests were talking about how awesome she was. I really can't thank The Silk Veil enough! Our wedding probably would've been a mess without her and her guidance.

She's got a good eye for detail and wants to make sure that your wedding day goes as smoothly and is as beautiful as possible. Listen to her advice. She cares as much about your wedding as you do!
