Last night I met with the K(C)athy's who are my mom's friends that agreed to be our day of coordinators. We got together at a nearby restuarant to go over all of the plans so far for the wedding and what I'll need for them to do. I made them each a folder with information inside including all the vendors contact information, tentative timeline and list of tasks I'll need for them to do. They said they could tell I'm a mini version of my mother since she is uber organized as well.
I also showed them pictures of the venue and pictures of centerpieces and other decor ideas I have. We talked for over an hour about ideas and they asked me a lot of great questions and gave me a ton of ideas. Another one of their friends, Karla, who is a graphic designer and apparently has an amazing eye for design has also agreed to help out that day with setting everything up.
We talked about taking a trip out to the venue sometime, once all the snow melts, to figure out where we want to place everything as well as do some centerpiece mockups.
Both ladies are very excited about helping out and I feel totally confident that with their help the wedding will go off without a hitch. Since they are two of my mom's closest friends I know they will do everything they can to make sure we have a beautiful wedding!
