Wedding Coordinator(s):

The wedding coordinator is the person behind the curtain making certain your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible–so you (hopefully) don’t have to worry about ANYTHING. They are not the person you call after you get engaged to help you pick out the perfect caterer, florist, photographer, or design details, but they will take all the hard work and research you’ve done and turn those plans into reality. You typically meet with a wedding coordinator several months or several weeks (depending on the service level you opt to get from them) before your wedding to go over your wedding timeline, guest count, venue details, and more. Our Apple Lane Weddings Preferred Wedding Coordinators attend to things like overall logistics of the event, maps and directions, parking, chair, bench, table, linen, furniture, and china accommodations. They often help devise a seating chart and day-of-wedding timeline and schedule (such as when the speeches would take places as well as the first dance and toast—all for a nominal fee. They make sure the tables are set on time, the guests are seated in the right spot, the ceremony starts and ends on time, things are packed up and sent back to the vendors, and that everything runs as smoothly as possible—freeing the bride, the bride’s family, and guests to enjoy the once in a lifetime moments of this special day.

Apple Lane Weddings is only in the business of renting land and facilities for weddings, events, and special occasions. Therefore we are discriminating in choosing Preferred Wedding Coordinators to lease our venue accommodations. A Wedding Coordinator offers varying levels of wedding planning and coordination, so it’s good to check with them to verify you’re not doubling up on efforts. Depending on your budget and the time you have to dedicate to planning a wedding, Apple Lane Weddings highly recommends using a wedding coordinator. In the end, the services you get from a good wedding coordinator are worth far more than you can do even with donated hours by yourself, family, and friends.

Before you decide whether to go with a wedding planner or wedding coordinator (or both), be sure to ask yourself these questions: Do you feel like you have the vision for your wedding and some contacts for professional services, but you don’t know the environment, logistics, contacts, or formalities of a wedding in the location of the wedding venue? Are you unsure of how to plan a timeline, schedule, a seating chart, weather and temperature, or how long the ceremony should last?. A wedding coordinator could be the best option for you. What is your general budget? Are you willing to spend at least 10-15% of that budget on a wedding planner? If not, a wedding coordinator could be easier on your wallet. At Apple Lane Orchards Weddings and Events we have two wedding approved Wedding Coordinators: Jessica Noble and Sherry Horton.
