Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire an experienced Day-of Coordinator instead of asking a friend?
Because we want you (and your friends and family!) to enjoy the day, and an experienced planner knows how to handle anything that may pop up on the day of your wedding. We will coordinate the set-up/breakdown details with your vendors, help you craft the perfect timeline, and share our years of past event experience so that you know what to expect on your big day. Our ultimate goal is for you to relax and enjoy your entire wedding day from start to finish along with your family and friends!
What does a “Day-of” Coordinator role look like?
Many people think hiring a day-of coordinator means we show up on the day of the event and make sure everything happens. The reality is that we are working many months in advance to help all the small details fall into place! We do this by:
- Sending you monthly to-do checklists and planning questionnaires;
- Referring trustworthy, professional vendors who fit your wedding vision;
- Answering all of your wedding etiquette and tradition questions;
- Drafting comprehensive vendor timelines and wedding party itineraries;
- Communicating with vendors to confirm arrival times and logistical needs;
- Coordinating your ceremony and rehearsal;
- Supervising and executing wedding day set-up and break-down;
- and so much more!

What sets Chestnut & Vine apart from other Day-of Coordinators?
Day-of wedding coordination is all we do! This means that we will give you our full attention and provide you with the same high quality service that we give all Chestnut & Vine clients.
While other wedding coordinators may not meet with their day-of clients until a month or two before the wedding, Chestnut & Vine starts working with you immediately after being booked. We want to gain your trust by getting to know you from the start and expertly guiding you through the entire wedding planning process. The best part is that you will enjoy your wedding day to its fullest because you know that Chestnut & Vine will take care of everything.
