It’s well documented that getting married is in the top 10 stressful life events, despite it also being one of the happiest. Your wedding day is definitely one of the most important days in your life and its significance has not changed over the centuries. Whether you are having a religious service or not, marriage is a lifetime commitment between two people, in front of family and friends and, yes, it is a big deal.

So, why does it get so stressful? Maybe it is because the expectation of a wedding is up there with all our most treasured dreams, only this is a dream we can turn into a reality. The problem is that we all want the reality to live up to the dream and this is where you could be reaching out to a wedding co-ordinator to help make your dreams come true and alleviate some of the pressure on you.

Generally, it’s not the event itself but the importance of it that worries us. If, in the course of organising a wedding, you feel that you are getting overwhelmed then you are likely to feel as though you can’t cope. That’s the point when the stress kicks in but if you do have some support then you can usually cope a great deal better and a wedding co-ordinator’s first job is to support the bride and groom.

Here, Janice Green, wedding co-ordinator at Ufford Park in Woodbridge, details just five of the ways that a wedding co-ordinator can help.

1. In safe hands

Wedding co-ordinators can take the time to ensure that guests with specific requirements, disabled access etc, are taken care of so you don’t have to worry about them.

2. Plenty of contacts

If you’d like to book something unusual, like an ice sculptor or a pair of doves to fly on command, a wedding co-ordinator can source it for you as they will have a number of contacts to hand.

3. Expert guidance

If you have a preference for specific music, recorded or live, the wedding co-ordinator can help to guide you on what’s available and what’s possible at your venue. This also extends to various other logistics, including room set-up and additional entertainment choices - such as candy carts and photobooths.

4. Conscious catering

Wedding co-ordinators can ensure that all dietary requirements are taken care of on the day as they are able to liaise with the catering staff on your behalf.

5. Attentive service

Wedding co-ordinators can ensure all guests are clear about which table they are sitting at on the day.

The beauty of a wedding coordinator is that they not only take the stress away but they can do as little or as much as you need them to. They do this for a living, so they are experienced and they know all the tricks of the trade. Where they really come into their own is if something goes a little awry. Then they’ll know just how to fix it and can probably fix it without anyone even realising that there was a hiccup at all.

Your wedding is your day, your truly special day.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy it. Your wedding co-ordinator can have it all under control.
