Although the weather hasn't been as inspiring as I would love, it has definitely got me feeling all the feels that come with winter. Winter is such an extraordinary time of the year and despite the nights being darker, the sparkles are definitely brighter and the atmosphere is bursting with a lot of love and gratitude.

With that being said… I have to admit that I have never been too fond of actually getting married in winter, primarily because of the weather. But lately, it seems like my attitude has definitely changed. For instance the AMAZING blogger and vlogger Lydia Millen had her wedding during the winter and yet, it was able to embrace the season without being completely centered on Christmas, whereas Noelle Downing, another FANTASTIC blogger and influencer, completely embraced the festive season in her choice of Wedding decor. Both weddings made me realise that a winter wedding doesn’t have to be defined by the season, but it is what you make it to be. So, today I thought it would be fun to encourage you and give some inspiration to create the perfect Winter wedding.

Yes, I could not believe this was in December either!

This, truly is extraordinary!

So don’t be afraid to consider the winter season, although the weather can be unbearable at times. Also, do not be bound by a colour scheme as you saw with Lydia Millen’s winter wedding, you will be surprised about what you can do with the right vision and decor.

Anything is possible! especially if you plan to have your wedding and reception in doors.

Enjoy the planning process and see you next month.

Happy new month, I hope my last last post was insightful and gave you some useful tips on how to find the perfect planner.

Today we will look at the role of a wedding coordinator.

A wedding coordinator, also known as a day of wedding coordinator, can really assist wedding couples in so many wonderful ways on the actual day of their wedding.

Their sole responsibility is to manage and oversee the running of your wedding day. They usually begin helping you prepare a month before the wedding, creating the timeline for the actual wedding day.

It is their job to ensure that everything goes according to plan as well as fixing any issues that may arise on the day.

They will confirm vendor contracts and create a timeline for the day, they will also make sure things like payments and guest counts are in order, but they won't be involved in the earlier planning phases or

keep track of your budget.

A wedding coordinator will be logistically focused and be in charge of the following tasks:

  1. Meet with you four to eight weeks before the wedding to get a handle on what you've planned thus far (work through any details and follow up on any loose ends).

  2. Checks in with your vendors to review the signed contracts and confirm logistics.

  3. Creates detailed timelines and floor plans.

  4. Completes a final walk-through of the ceremony and reception sites.

  5. Addresses any overlooked details (such as forgetting to hire a coat check attendant).

  6. Manages the rehearsal.

  7. Oversees everything on the wedding day.

Making decisions like these are quite important as you are trusting and relying on these professionals to plan and execute one of the most important events in your life. Although this can be quite overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be. My advice would be to pick someone you genuinely like, someone who understands your vision, who is efficient in their ability to respond. This is because you are going to be communicating with them and seeing them very frequently.

So, with all that has been said… Don’t worry too much, trust your instincts and enjoy this process!

Happy Reading
