What do wedding coordinators do?

There are many parts to a wedding coordinator’s role. However, to summarise, wedding coordinators take care of every detail on your big day, from set-up to when your last guest is ready to go home. Here is a list:

  • They will set your wedding up. They’ll make sure your decorations are in the right place, and the same for the seats. When the time comes for the cocktail reception or banquet, they’ll set this up too.
  • They will ensure that your vendors are ready. They’ll call vendors such as your photographer, DJ and caterers to make sure they’re on their way.
  • They will be the go-to person to answer questions which your guests may have.
  • Your coordinator will inform your photographer of when important moments are about to happen. For example, they will tell the photographer when the cake will be cut, or first dance is about to happen so they can capture the most important moments.
  • Finally, they can ensure that your guests are looked after and are behaving well at your reception. Sometimes guests can get carried away if they’ve had a few to drink, so having someone control them can be very helpful.

The role of a wedding coordinator is limitless as every wedding is different, but these are the main points. Wedding coordinators are trained to adapt to all kinds of wedding, and they are ready for anything.

How much does a wedding coordinator cost?

This depends on how many wedding coordinators you need. We suggest 1 coordinator per 25 guests to make sure there are enough coordinators for your day to be smooth. Certain coordinators will look after certain groups of guests, such as the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the couple, and the vendors. The price also depends on the location of your wedding if your coordinator doesn’t work for the venue.

Wedding coordinators are undoubtedly crucial for your Big Day. This service comes as part of our wedding planning service, so you can contact us at info@svadbavispanii.ru to team up with us. We look forward to coordinating your wedding!

Why have a small wedding?

Nowadays, more people opt for a destination wedding in Spain and, as a result, small, intimate weddings are becoming more common. In this article, we go through all the most important advantages of having a small wedding in Spain.

Costs

Firstly, by having less guests, you have the opportunity to spend more money on the decoration and entertainment areas of your wedding. As a result, your day can be exactly as it is in your dreams. This in turn will make your wedding more memorable for your guests, as well as yourselves, as you can have a small, more luxurious wedding for the price of a basic wedding with hundreds of guests.

More personal

Small destination weddings offer a more personal experience for both the couple and the guests. You will be celebrating only with your nearest and dearest, and you will not have to feel obliged to invite people you are not as close to. Additionally, you can spend more time with each of your guests which makes their time more enjoyable too.

Choice

For small destination weddings you have a lot more options for venue and accommodation at your disposal. Additionally, it will be a lot easier to accommodate your guests all in the same place. Moreover, you can often accommodate at the same place as the reception. This is generally the preferred option as it cuts down the need for extra transportation.

10 wedding transport ideas

Transport is a very important feature of any wedding, and traditionally the most common choice was of course classic wedding cars. However nowadays there are plenty of options of transport for weddings, so if you’re currently thinking about transport for your wedding this article is a must-read as we have put together the 10 best wedding transport ideas!

1. Classic car

Let’s start with a traditional mode of wedding transport. Classic cars have always been a popular choice for weddings, and if you love the beauty of classic cars this option is perfect for you. There is a whole host of models to choose, and it is popular to decorate the car with ribbons to transform it into a wedding car.

2. Limousine

Limos are linked to luxury and glamour, so if your wedding is going to be luxurious and glamorous, why not travel by limo? Additionally, from a more practical point of view, if the bride has a large, princess-style wedding dress a limo could be a more comfortable choice since the dress will be able to fit more easily in a limo!

3. Super luxurious car

If travelling in a supercar is your dream, why not use the opportunity of your wedding to make this dream happen? Imagine being transported from your wedding to the reception in a chic red Ferrari with the roof down with the Spanish sun beaming down on you – perfect.

4. Moped or motorbike

If you are a king or queen of speed and enjoy being in the open air, a moped (such as a classic vespa) or motorbike (Harley Davidsons always look cool) could be the option for you. It’s certainly a unique choice and would definitely be unforgettable.

5. Horse and carriage

On the opposite end of the spectrum to motorbikes lies the elegant option of a horse and carriage. With Spain’s beautiful, sunny climate, a horse and carriage is a very feasible option. This method of transport will make you feel like a king or queen on your wedding day.

6. Donkey

If you are marrying in Catalonia, why not use the cultural Catalan symbol of the donkey? As well as being sweet animals, donkeys have also provided a reliable method of transport for thousands of years.

7. In the air!

To make an unforgettable entrance, you could arrive at your wedding in a helicopter or even by a small private plane. Imagine rolling out the red carpet from a helicopter to walk down the aisle! You’d feel like royalty.

8. Hot air balloon

Again arriving from the sky, if you are a thrill seeker you could choose a hot air balloon to take in all the views of sunny Spain whilst arriving at your special ceremony.

9. Boat

Spain is surrounded by beautiful coastline, and so a popular choice of wedding venue in Spain is the beach. If you are a couple who will celebrate your wedding on a beach, why not consider a boat for your method of transport? It would be both practical as you’re by the sea and unique!

10. Good old-fashioned walking

If you are looking to have a simplistic wedding and are not all about fancy transport, walking could be for you. Just ensure that you’re not having to walk too far to arrive at your wedding as we don’t want you to be tired! Also consider what shoes you’d wear – there’s nothing worse than aching feet, especially when you’ll be doing your all-important first dance in a matter of hours!

Wedding in Asturias – Kaci and Dave

The wedding of Kaci and Dave was a spectacular wedding in Asturias, in a castle in which the bride and groom became real princes. This castle has an spectacular architecture and it is in the middle of nature, surrounded by beautiful mountains.

The castle has magnificent stone stairs where the couple could take photos and immortalize their great day. The couple was also photographed in the beautiful landscape surrounding the castle, with the green of the mountains and a beautiful lake in the background.

Kaci wore her hair with beautiful waves, with little flowers and a simple veil. As complements, she wore a pair of spectacular vintage earrings, sandals in pink rose that combined perfectly with the dress, and a bouquet in pastel tones with white and pink flowers.

The bride got ready in one of the castle rooms. She wore a beautiful dress in light pink with silver lace full of rhinestones.

Dave chose for the occasion a modern and elegant suit in deep blue, with white shirt and striped tie in light blue. He wore a belt and brown shoes and some flowers adorning his lapel.

The invitations were designed with an elegant and sophisticated style, with a beautiful illustration of the castle and typography according to the style of the wedding. For the ceremony and dinner decoration, we chose to use candles to provide light and give a more cozy atmosphere to the romantic ceremony.

Kaci and Dave wedding in Asturias was a wonderful day in which the couple shone in an exceptional environment, with a monumental building in the background surrounded by an amazing landscape.

This castle stands for centuries, earlier there was a farm until the Spanish tycoon Francisco Trikset has not decided to place a family residence here.

Why do you need a wedding coordinator in Spain?

Wedding coordinator – is a professional who performs on the “scene” directly on your wedding day. He or she cares about agenda designed by wedding planner, watches out of all details and makes the celebration process perfect from the very beginning of the day till the time of last guest’s departure.

One important point: the wedding coordinator in Spain – it is all above plus a translator. This is a person who can help the bride and her guests at any time, communicates with local staff and resolves any misunderstandings and problems. Here in Spain, coordinator must speak not only English or Spanish, but often local language Catalan. I can say without any doubts: me and my team speak perfectly all these languages!

Wedding Coordinator tracks all the steps according the event timing and makes everything in time. Also he or she is responsible for the well-coordinated and efficient work of hired professionals – make-up artists, photographers, musicians, florists, etc. Coordinator remembers what time artists or photographer should arrive, who keeps the rings at the ceremony and what to do if the rain starts or  bride’s heel is broken.

And – yes, a good coordinator in Spain – this is a special kind of fairy, who is always in the right time in the right place and resolves all the problems. For example, coordinator’s purse is full of completely unexpected, but necessary at the moment things. Threads with a needle, pin and hair spray, comfortable shoes for tired legs, a sedative and analgesic medicine, USB flash drive, wet wipes, etc.

Wedding coordinator supervises all the wedding stuff – up to a little piece! The appropriate arrival of  stylists, makeup/hair for a bride, flowers, bridal bouquet and groom’s boutonniere, decor for the ceremony or banquet hall – floral compositions, furniture and accessories. Coordinator guides the transport on wedding day and controls all the movements of the bride and groom and their guests. He or she meets latecomers (or vice versa, early birds) and escorts them to the place of the ceremony.

If you decide to visit the castle or beautiful historic park, the coordinator will make the smooth entrance – here in Spain there are some places which require special or pre-purchased tickets for every guest. And the wedding coordinator will check the photo and video permission and etc. During the dinner coordinator monitors the efficient work of waiters, musicians and other professionals. Also coordinator is the person who pays vendors at the end of the celebration.

To be honest, I believe that the bride’s goal – to enjoy the wedding, wedding coordinator’s goal – to ensure everything makes the bride happy. For my dear clients I prepare a special gift from my heart – if you order a wedding organization in the Natalia Ortiz agency, Big Day’s coordination of any complexity is included in the cost of the wedding!

And of course, Wedding Agency by Natalia Ortiz provides the service of wedding coordination in Spain absolutely to all couples who have planned their wedding in Spain by themselves and who wants to enjoy their beautiful day!
