Wake up, Drink Your Mimosa, and Get Married!

I Specialize In Wedding Coordination So You Don’t Have To

“MK was energetic, organized, and calming. She headed off minor problems before
they became big ones, keeping things under control without making them our problem.”

What We Do

Your Day by MK specializes in Month-Of Coordination*. That means I make sure your wedding day happens just the way you planned it. I make sure the florist is there on time, every place card is set, vendors are confirmed and tips are distributed at the end of the night. You should be spending your time with your family, saying “I do” and dancing with all your friends, not dealing with the issues that come up on a wedding day. My team and I have it covered so you don’t have to think about it!

Others call it Day-of, but I call it “Month-Of” coordination because there’s always some prep work. In those last couple months, no longer are you picking out colors and designing the centerpieces. Instead you are trying to coordinate 20 different vendors and create a master timeline ALL while doing your job and trying to have a social life.

*Month of Coordination is available in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Washington DC

How We Do It

The first time we meet is usually over LaCroix (or icecream!). I like to take the time to get to know my couples, hear about their passions and weird quirks. By the end of this adventure, we’re going to be great pals.

We’ll go over all of your vendors, talk about how you envision your wedding day, chat about your hard no’s and must-have’s. The more we know, the better we can make sure your wedding day goes the way you want it*.

After this initial meeting, I’ll begin reaching out to your vendors, setting up any necessary meetings, and coordinating all details with them. I will begin to put together a master timeline so your day goes perfectly.

We’ll have 2 more meetings with unlimited email communication in between. I’ll be there for your rehearsal and I’ll make sure to introduce myself to your wedding party and your family members. This way, they know to bother me on your wedding day and not you!

This is likely your first time getting married, so it’s understandable that you won’t know everything about this whole process. That’s why you’ll get our entire packet of checklists, cheat sheets, FAQ’s, sample timelines and more.

Your Wedding Day

GET EXCITED! No last minute check-ins, no need to be sure the trolley is on time or that grandma knows where to go. Instead, wake up, sip on your mimosa and relax while you get your make-up done. Then, blast Mr. Brightside somewhat ironically and sing along with all your friends.

Your Day by MK is there at the very beginning of your day. We have the names and numbers for all delivery people and your card box is watched over like a hawk. Front row is reserved, family photos in place, guest book is out with extra pens tucked aside so all you have to do is walk down the aisle.

Your tips will be distributed to all your vendors so your dad doesn’t have to find them at the end of the night. We will stay until the end of the evening, collecting all the pieces you brought to the venue, box them up and make sure they are all in one place so your Mom doesn’t freak out.

As an extra bonus, I also provide my couples with a Month-After checklist that helps you remember all the details you have to take care of after you say, “I do”!

Month of Coordination starts at $2,100
