Sponsor Introduction: Tiffany The Coordinator

You will never hear me say word one about the concept of wedding planners, because, well, I believe in de-professionalizing weddings. That said, I do understand the idea of Day Of Coordination. Maybe it’s the theatre producer in me, who thinks Stage Managers are the closest thing we have on this earth to God. Or maybe it it’s the event planner in me, who knows just how much hard work an event is on the day of. Either way, I’m firmly in favor of putting someone in charge of your wedding day who is not you, whether that is a friend or loved one, or a tried-and-true pro.

If you are considering hiring such a person, and you live in LA, you should look into Tiffany The Coordinator. She does what any good DOC/stage manager should do (but so many DOCs do not, grrrr):

  1. She lifts and carries
  2. She gives you unlimited time (no overtime, no hidden fees)
  3. Makes sure you eat
  4. Cleans up after the party
  5. And, drum roll please, she’s open to alternative weddings

Now all we need to know is if she looks sassy but firm with her clipboard. Go check her out.

    seriously though, not all wedding planners professionalize weddings though, right? i mean, just like a DOC, they help you get through the process, take care of things you might not be able to take care of because of work/life/etc, and get you in touch faster with vendors than you might be able to on your own. and then they do your day of coordination.

    I suppose if you can make it work for you then its good. I find the move towards weddings planned by planners to be part of the over-wedding of the wedding. But! To each their own! And there are a few amazing creative party planners out there (Chelsea, of {frolic!} amazing) And remember, I have lots of event experience, so I suppose it’s easy for me to be biased against it, since our wedding is FAR from the largest and most formal party I’ve thrown ;)

    I guess if I had to pick, I’d have a already married friend guide me through, but not everyone has that!

  • Thank you!!!! This is a late comment, I know, but having a day-of coordinator so that guests and family members have a point person *who is NOT the bride* is so important to maintaining sanity!

    I love that Tiffany offers clean-up and no overtime fees–this is the way wedding coordinators should be, y’all.

    (and as a stage manager, i thank you for the love…very, very much)
