While the wedding
coordinator works to keep the big picture of your wedding on track,
let Carol work specifically with dressing the bride and her party.
Before the wedding, Carol will consult with your primary wedding
coordinator, the hair and make-up professionals, and the photographer
to confirm a time line. The day of the wedding, she will set up
the bride’s room and maintain contact with the primary coordinator
to make sure everything else is progressing smoothly. She will “police”
entry into the bride’s dressing area. She will be aware that
hair and make-up are proceeding on schedule.
Most wedding gowns require special dressing assistance. Carol will
help the bride into her foundation garments, gown, and accessories.
She can assist the hairstylist with the veil if necessary.
Once the bride is dressed, Carol will work with the photographer
during any pre-wedding family/group shots. She will gather the groups
of people and coordinate things to be sure that the bride and groom
do not run into each other (if this is important to them). She will
fluff the bride and check other people in the photos for details.
Carol will accompany the bride into the pre-ceremony holding area.
She will do a final check of attendants and the bride before they
walk down the aisle. Between the ceremony and reception, Carol will
work with the photographer once again. Carol’s final responsibility
will be to tie up the bride’s bustle before she enters the
On my wedding day, Carol
helped dress me and check out the details of my attendants.
She stayed with me all day, helping me walk and move in this beautiful
work of art, fussing with make-up and generally assisting whenever
needed. It was a blessing to have her calm presence there.
