Wedding Coordinator & Consultant

You will be busier than expected with time at a premium and need someone in charge the day of the wedding to implement your plan and get things done so you can enjoy the big event.  Family and Friends should be guests, not staff!  For a flat fee of $600, Dan will not only conduct your rehearsal and officiate, but will also manage the reception, creating a timeline, helping with vendor management and making sure everything goes as smooth as possible. He can suggest associate vendors to fit your budget and get things moving fast and easy for you. This is over 10 hours of work.
