    This is a great post and wish I would have read it before I started my business several years ago. I wasn’t sure about what I had to do or what I didn’t have to do as a “Wedding Coordinator.” Now, after making mistakes when I first started out, I put in my contract what is included and what is not included just to make sure we are all on the same page. If my bride wants me to put linens on the tables, there is a fee for that so that I can hire the appropriate amount of assistants to help in this task. If my bride wants the room cleaned after the wedding, I hire a cleaning crew to come in after the event and charge the client accordingly. I learned the hard way!

    We live and learn, right Kathy? Thanks for sharing your experience. I had a similar experience when starting out as well.

    I’m similar to Kathleen! I totally learned the hard way and now have it clearly written in my contract what I do and don’t do, even down to putting grandma’s pearls around a bouquet!
