I hired Christine for day-of coordination because her services under that description seemed to provide so much more than most coordinators. I first met with Christine in January. Every few months she would check in with me to make sure my planning was on track, and was always available to answer any questions I might have. A month before the wedding, she reviewed all my vendor contracts and began creating the production schedule for the weekend. The Saturday of the wedding, she and her assistant were on hand the entire time and managed a bus break down that I didn't know about until well after the fact. Christine and her assistant worked with the Capitol Hill Club to set up the tabletop decor I made and then packaged it up at the end of the night. She though of little details that I had not, and I think it contributed to what felt like a flawless evening. No matter how well you plan your wedding, something may still go wrong. Hire someone else to deal with it that day. By the end of the night, my father who had originally told me the coordinator was an unnecessary expense said he was really glad she was there to keep everything on track.
