If you ask us, there is one non-negotiable item. It will make your day run so much smoother. You won’t have to worry about the ceremony starting on time or Uncle Bub trying to give a drunken speech. Any guesses?
A day of coordinator. I mean, we totally get that WE are day of coordinators and this might be a little bias, but hear us out!
First of all, let’s set one thing straight: “day of” does not truly mean “day of”. Once our couples book with us, we give them various resources and planning documents. A month before the wedding day we set up a meeting to go over all the details. We want to know your big day forwards and backwards. We’ll review your wedding timeline and make sure all the little tasks are finalized.
We’re professional cat herders // You know how hard it is to make 100+ people move from cocktail hour to their reception seats so the couple can be announced? Much longer than one would ever think. You're about to have your first dance but the mother of the bride went missing? We’ll track her down to make sure she doesn’t miss this moment.
We can be the hard asses // Your caterer is late, we’ll give them a call (or ten). You want to make sure your Aunt Karen doesn’t help set up, we can give her another project. You want to make sure a certain friend doesn’t give a too long, drunken speech - WE. GOT. YOU.
We have that emergency kit STOCKED // No matter how hard you try, accidents still happen. Wine gets spilled on wedding dresses. Candle wax gets on tables. Flowers fly off arches. We got it covered.
Allow your friends and family to be guests // Raise your hand if you’ve been a bridesmaid or groomsmen and been put to work on the wedding day? It does come with the territory, but we cannot tell you how many times we’ve heard that bridesmaids have had to pick up trash, serve food, set up tables. All while wearing their wedding attire.
Be completely present on your wedding day // No need for you to be running around setting up tables, stressing about signage that might not be up yet, the gross fact that the bathroom is out of TP. Leave those details to the pros.
Day of coordinators don’t just show up on your wedding day, we take time to get to know your day inside and out. We’ll make sure all the little tasks are taken care of so all you do is marry the love of your life and celebrate with the people who matter to you most!

Ten Items to Pack for Your Wedding Day // Tuesday Ten // Champagne + Linen // Montana Wedding Designers and Planners
Who watched The Hills back in the early 2000s? Well good ol' LC from The Hills does a Tuesday Ten on her website, so we decided to do the same! Today we’re giving you the top ten items to pack for your wedding day.
Club Soda // One time a bride had beer spilt down the front of her dress. The second, RED wine. But guess what? We got it out with club soda.
Tide To Go pens // Lipstick on a dress before the ceremony? We got you.
Zip ties // We go through this stuff like crazy. Windy ceremony? Lock down those florals.
Duck tape // It fixes everything. You can go with the classic silver, or get white and green to be safe.
Scissors // Are there really any questions about this?
Fishing line // We use this way more than one would think. It’s essentially clear so guests won’t see that you use it to keep a hanging sign from turning backwards.
Comfortable shoes // Break those bad boys in ahead of time. No one wants to slow their dancing because of sore feet.
Wine/bottle opener // Nothing like the one time a bartender didn’t have a bottle opener once happy hour started to teach us to always have one of these on hand.
Stick lighters // Most people have some sort of centerpiece with candle elements, but tend to forget about the most important part - the lighter. Do yourself a favor and get one of those stick lighters, you don’t want to have to light 20 plus candles with a regular lighter.
Your overnight bag // How horrible would it be to do your beautiful grand entrance and want to head back to your honeymoon suite and realized you left your overnight bag in the bridesmaid suite? Designate a friend to make sure that bad boy ends up in the right spot.
Please keep in mind that you can fine alllllllmost all of these at the Dollar Store!
