Connect Your Event Director to your Wedding Planner/Coordinator.
If you have a Wedding Planner/Coordinator in place to manage the big and small planning duties, he/she will be the correct point person to connect to the Event Director in charge of the staff that will work your event. This will ensure that the communication between the two remains intact, even if you are not involved. This is particularly important in order for you to maintain focus on the most important things, like your fiancé, spending much needed time with family and friends, and not falling down the rabbit of hole of planning. That’s the job of the Wedding Planner.
Some great ways to introduce these key players is to setup a coffee date, or schedule a Skype meeting. It’s truly up to you how you do it, but add this task to your checklist now. It’ll save you time and headaches later.
