Even if you’re a Pinterest-obsessed, plan-it-yourself bride who’s eager to handle every wedding detail from start to finish, your big day is yours to enjoy—without worrying about where your bridal party is or when your vendors should arrive. That’s where a day-of coordinator comes in. You plan the wedding of your dreams, and your day-of coordinator will work with you in the days or weeks leading up to your event to ensure your vision is executed smoothly. Read on for five amazing day-of coordinators who you can count on to work wedding-day magic.

Without a Hitch, Framingham

Without a Hitch focuses exclusively on day-of coordination across New England, meaning founder Sarah Narcus and her team are true experts when it comes to jumping in during the most hectic time of planning. Your coordinator will meet with you to discuss your timeline and visit your venue. Then, a week before your wedding, she’ll confirm all the details with you and your vendors, as well as work with you and your wedding party during the rehearsal. When it’s time to tie the knot, the team will handle everything from ceremony set-up to transporting wedding gifts at the end of the night.

The Day of Events, Northborough

With 20 years of experience, Michelle Schaufeld offers day-of coordination with a personal touch. You’ll meet twice with Schaufeld or one of the company’s other expert event coordinators to discuss your style and vision, and will also receive unrestricted email and phone assistance leading up to your wedding. The team will help bring the wedding that you’ve so carefully planned to life by overseeing your vendors ahead of and on your wedding day, as well as managing any other day-of details.

SYB Event Planning, Wellesley

Owner Soraya Belgacem launched her business in 2014, specializing in multicultural event planning. Her day-of wedding package starts 10 days before you’re set to head to the altar, and will include one planning meeting. Ahead of the event, she’ll help you create a wedding-day schedule and confirm and deliver any final payments to your vendors. Then, at your wedding, you’ll get full on-site support, including set-up and pack-up.

K. Kerkorian Weddings & Events, Boston

Kristyn Kerkorian’s “Event Management and Execution” service covers any and all day-of logistics. You’ll review your wedding timeline with Kerkorian at least two weeks before your wedding date. Then, she’ll handle vendor confirmations, day-of delivery, set-up, cleanup, and rental returns. Kerkorian’s passion for planning is driven by her love of family, so she’ll ensure that your day is spent with loved ones—not looking for the welcome bags.

Planned Perfectly Wedding & Events, Pelham, NH

Leslie Cregg-Hyder and her team offer two distinct packages for the hands-on bride. Their “Day of Wedding/Rehearsal” package is available as early as six months before your wedding, and as late as two weeks out. It includes two meetings, as well as help finalizing your timeline and vendors. On the big day, you’ll get two assistants for 10 hours—one to help you and your wedding party, and one to oversee the reception site. Planned Perfectly’s “The Bride’s Day” package is similar, but instead includes five hours of day-of assistance, which you’ll decide how and when to use. The company also offers exclusive discounts to military couples.
