Sometimes you meet people and its uncanny how many similarities you have with them right off the bat. This is exactly what happened when I started emailing with Jasmine, owner of Just for the Day, a DC-based wedding coordination business. Jasmine started her wedding business on the side while working a full-time consulting job (like me!), runs an awesome side business that helps small business owners on PR & marketing (like me!), and is focused mainly on providing coordination services over full wedding planning to her clients. I am so excited to get to share more with you guys today about Jasmine & Just For The Day Weddings – and if you are in need of a wedding coordinator, please check her out!
First, a bit more about Jasmine:
Jasmine is the owner of Just For the Day (JFD), a D.C. based day of wedding coordinating business. JFD works primarily with DIY couples who enjoy the planning process but need help pulling it all together and seeing all of the couples plans through on the wedding day. Jasmine has an extensive event management background that includes producing televised events and exclusive high profile award shows. She has coordinated weddings all around the D.C. metro area for the past eight years and lives for making things happen! Follow Just For the Day on Twitter or Instagram!
Second, here’s a bit about her ideal clients:
A couple that has enjoyed wedding planning but wants to make sure all of the loose ends are tightened and that the wedding day goes according to plan perfectly (yes, I said perfect). And if something comes up unexpectedly, they don’t worry but defer to our team.
How her booking schedule works:
We’ve had couples to book us as early as 1 year out and as late as 1 month before the wedding. Either way, we can make it work.
Her wedding coordination experience:
We’ve coordinated weddings at hotels, private homes, county properties, parks, and international banquet halls. (Check out one of her weddings featured on United with Love!)
We help our clients build out their day of timeline, coordinate the wedding rehearsal, arrive a few hours before the wedding to ensure the vendors have arrived and oversee set up, manage the wedding ceremony and reception, and make sure the reception flows nicely. Occasionally, we will help with special decor needs like laying out the place cards and wedding favors, setting out centerpieces, and hanging paper flower pomanders.
Remember, although most wedding venues have coordinators, their coordinators are responsible for the venue (planning and logistics). A day-of coordinator, is there to be responsible for the wedding party, guests, the actually wedding and reception coordination (we cue the music and tell folks when to walk) and we ensure the wedding vendors adhere to their contractual and service obligations.
So if you are in need of a day-of wedding coordinator, be sure to consider Jasmine with Just for the Day Weddings!
