We all know (generally, at least) the etiquette of what responsibilities fall on your bridal attendants and vendors during the wedding planning process, but do you know how the breakdown works when the day finally arrives?

If not, you’re about to!

Below, we have outlined some general responsibilities for your coordinator, your point person, and you on your wedding day.

  • Coordinator. Most of the responsibilities on your big day will fall on your coordinator or wedding planner. In order to minimize your stress, your coordinator will handle event set-up and tear-down, vendor arrivals, and guest timing, as well as managing the flow of the event in real-time. This is the person who will manage the event in adherence with your timeline, and their expertise is the engine of your ceremony’s success. For the most part, your coordinator handles all of the tangible aspects of your wedding. Think of them as the show-runner for your big day!

  • Maid of Honor/Point Person. Whether it’s your maid of honor, your mom, or anyone else, you need to have a point person to handle the personal side of things. Essentially, this person’s main job is bride management. If any drama were to arise, she is the person who should squash it before it reaches you. Additionally, she will ensure that you eat beforehand and that you have everything you need to truly enjoy your wedding. She’s your personal assistant, so make sure that you choose wisely.

  • The Bride. Fortunately for you, your job is the easiest of them all! Aside from getting into your dress and feeling like your most beautiful and radiant self, your only responsibility is to relax and bask in the joy of your day. Be sure to slow down and take the time to relish the experience, because it all goes by so quickly! No matter what happens, remember that everything will be great, and your wedding day will be everything that you wanted.
