What Does a Day-of Wedding Coordinator Do?
Have you ever been to a wedding where it was clear the couple could have used more help? Perhaps things were always running late, there was not enough staff or no one knew what they were doing. This looks bad on the bride and groom, and it definitely is not fun to be a guest at such a wedding watching the chaos. I have been to too many weddings where the couple clearly could have used a little extra help in executing their plans.
Nowadays, with wedding blogs and DIY books readily available, more and more couples are opting to plan their own wedding, but one thing is for sure—you cannot be the bride and groom and coordinate your wedding day!
For couples who have done all the planning for their wedding, a popular service is hiring a Day-Of Coordinator or Month-Of Coordinator to oversee the details.
It is sometimes referred to as “Month-Of” because the wedding coordinator will commence their services about 4 weeks prior to the wedding day. To get familiar with your wedding plans, usually 1-2 meetings are needed to go through the itinerary, take care of last minute details, and what has been discussed with vendors. No matter what the service is called, these meetings are vital to communicate your vision and expectations for your special day. Along with this preparation is having the wedding coordinator present at your wedding rehearsal, so that that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the ceremony.

Are you planning a DIY wedding in NYC? Hire Janeen and Events by Parties N' All. My wife and I got married in Dumbo Loft (a "raw space") in April. Getting married in New York is expensive. Like a lot of young couples here, we were looking to strike a balance between saving money by doing as much work ourselves as we could, and not going crazy with logistics and details.
Hiring Janeen and Events by Parties N' All was the best decision we made. Not only did they provide the staffing at a very reasonable rate, Janeen was also able to connect us to the other vendors we needed, all of whom were both reliable and more affordable than much of the competition. Janeen was even able to procure discounted rates for many of the vendors that weren't advertised. I think we actually came out ahead by hiring Janeen to help with the planning.
Her day-of coordination was also exceptional. I had planned to spend most of my wedding day before the ceremony on-site to help with the setup and last-minute logistics. Janeen dismissed me as soon as I arrived and took care of everything! I got to spend some fantastic, meaningful time with my friends and family before the ceremony, while she and her staff handled all the setup and coordinated all the vendors. The space looked incredible, and the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch. Our guests were even raving to us about how great Janeen was.
I don't generally write reviews online, but I'm really grateful to Janeen and her staff for helping us create such a special day. She deserves your business, and you (and your wallet!) will be glad you hired her.
We hired Janeen for her day of wedding coordination for our wedding at 26 Bridge on June 2 2018. On the day of our wedding, Janeen and her team executed our wedding plan to the letter and did not miss a beat. 26 Bridge is a massive space with a lot of moving parts. Between the details we provided Janeen up until the day of the wedding and her follow-up calls to ensure she had a thorough understanding of everything, we felt at ease on our big day. It was flawlessly done from start to finish and at the end of the wedding during all the chaos, we were able to really enjoy our guest while everything was being taken care of. Janeen made sure we had food and plenty to drink and also checked in on our other vendors as well. If you want to be at ease on your big day, we highly recommend you check out Parties N All, it's worth every penny.
Janeen and her team did a fantastic job taking care of every single detail leading up to, and the day of our wedding. Janeen thought of absolutely everything and is a total pro. Planning a wedding is incredibly stressful and the week leading up to the big day is stressful x 100--Janeen took a huge weight off my shoulders by taking care of following up with each of our vendors, making sure our All Seated chart was complete, and getting everything set up and broken down the day of. She even made me a plate of food and kept the water coming so I wasn't a total mess the next day! 10 out of 10, would absolutely recommend Parties N' All for all of your events.
My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Janeen and her staff! She payed so much attention to detail. My wedding was in Brooklyn N.Y @ the Green Point Loft. It is a raw rustic space. Raw meaning empty space. When Janeen was done decorating this beautiful raw rustic space it felt like i was in a dream! Everything was unbelievably gorgoeous. The guest tables were to literally die for. Our sweetheart table was exactly how my husband and I imagined it would be. I am still in ALL! Dont even get me started with the signature drinks and bar setup. She is truly is a artist. She helped create such a wonderful memory for us both! I will definitely work with her in the near future! Thanks Janeen.
I couldn’t recommend Events by Parties N’ All more highly! It is no exaggeration to say that Janeen made our wedding possible. We had lots of big ideas and dreams (a ceremony in the round, catering from a restaurant, a killer band, lots of candles - all in a totally raw space in five months) and no idea how to execute them. Janeen and her staff made all of this and more possible. We called her a lot and she was always available to us. She told us exactly what it would take to make our dreams come true - even when it wasn’t always what we wanted to hear – and then made it happen. She was incredibly patient with all of our big demands and was just as detail obsessed as we are. She helped us think of everything and was on top of every detail, dollar, and timeline. Whenever we hit a dead end, Janeen was there with the solution. And whenever we were stressed out, she swooped in to sooth us. All of this for way less money than any of the other coordinators we spoke with - although I can’t imagine getting as much personalized attention from anyone else.
And the fact that they also have their own staffing company is essential. Our guests keep telling us how incredible and attentive the staff were and how seamlessly everything was executed. The staff was super friendly and transitioned our huge raw space unobtrusively and beautifully. And best of all, I had no stress on the day of the wedding and that’s totally thanks to the Events by Parties N’ All team. Janeen, Rich, and their staff went totally above and beyond to make sure that the entire planning process and the wedding were smooth, easy, happy, and beautiful. Hire them!
Let me just start by saying that if you have found Janeen from Parties N’ All then you are already on your way to the wedding of your dreams. Whether you are having a small backyard party or a large upscale wedding you are crazy to attempt to plan and run your event without Janeen’s expertise. When we first met Janeen we could instantly tell that she is extremely dedicated due to her passion for the work that she does. We gave her probably one of the biggest challenges, by having a large 180-person outdoor wedding at a venue that had MANY impossible restrictions to be worked around. To make things even more difficult, my father suddenly got very ill and had passed away just 10 days before the wedding. Janeen did not hesitate for one second to go above and beyond her agreed upon duties to make sure everything went smoothly.
Leading up to the wedding Janeen had no issues answering our million and a half text messages and emails as well as countless phone calls and meetings. She also helped us to think of things we never would have thought of before. She has worked with just about everyone in the wedding industry and can give you tons of honest feedback and unbiased recommendations for all of your vendors. Janeen always provided enough information to us that we always felt comfortable making decisions; she will never push you to sign up for anything that isn’t necessary. She also offers lots of very nice personal touch services such as full bar services, infused water and lemonade service during your ceremony and coffee and tea bars at the end. I would highly recommend ALL of these very reasonably priced add on services, you will NOT be disappointed.
Janeen’s real magic shined on the day of our wedding. She and her staff exerted themselves in the hours leading up to the wedding to get everything expertly setup. Without even asking, Janeen brought tons of her personally owned accent pieces. Janeen knows one speed and that is GO!! Whether it was just keeping us on schedule or taking care of small hiccups, she skillfully handled the event and all of her AMAZING staff. We cannot thank her enough for her incredible work ethic and helping us to achieve the wedding of our dreams. It really means a lot when everyone is coming up to you and telling you that this is “the best wedding they have ever been to”. Before Janeen and her staff left for the evening everything was packed up and the grounds were made spotless.
Bottom line, her prices are incredibly reasonable compared to the competition, her dedication and passion for the job is above and beyond, and her husband Rich (bar service) and her catering staff are the BEST in the industry. Hire Janeen and be prepared for magic!! See our wedding trailer video at the below link. Thank you Janeen!!
Obviously, planning a wedding is a stressful time... there is so much to think about and keep track of, and keeping within a budget just further complicates things. For our DIY food-truck wedding in Brooklyn, we honestly feel that hiring Janeen and her staff was probably one of the most important things that we did for our big day. Janeen talked us through the day beforehand, was patient with my detail-oriented self, and was able to touch upon things that I definitely would not have thought of otherwise. She is incredibly professional, organized, and clearly has a wealth of experience in the wedding industry. She created a timeline of our wedding day, and was contacting each of our vendors beforehand to make sure everyone was on the same page. On the actual day of our wedding, she kept everything running smoothly from behind the scenes, making our day appear seamless to us and our guests (even when the inevitable bump in the road may present itself). We had a food truck wedding with multiple vendors, and when one of them was not able to heat up their food in the pre-arranged time, she petitioned on our behalf, resulting in the vendor bringing in a separate pizza oven to make pizza as well for our guests (which we hadn't even paid for in the first place). She took the decorations I left and made our venue absolutely beautiful, she helped with organizing cleanup after the wedding, and her entire staff (from her bartenders to her waitstaff) were absolutely stellar. Even now, months after the wedding, we are blown away by the quality of work put forth by Parties N All; we would recommend them highly to anyone, as having Janeen and her staff there allowed us to enjoy our wedding day by taking care of all the details. We honestly do not know how we could have done it without them!
