Your wedding or bar/bat mitzvah plans are taking hold. You’ve hired your vendors and picked out your theme and logo. There’s one more essential person you need to consider! It’s important to understand the benefits and value of having a Day Of Coordinator. We turned to Ruth Lapin of Ruth Lapin Events to help us understand why a Day Of Coordinator can literally ‘Save The Day!’
Ruth always puts her clients first and has their best interest in mind. That’s why she emphasizes that “Even if you are a superstar planner, you should always hire a day of coordinator to allow you to enjoy your special event. Become her friend. Introduce her so she gets to know your family. The expectation is that the coordinator will take care of all the issues that may occur so that you don’t have to take responsibility. And unexpected nightmares do happen. Always!” READ MORE ......→
Being hired by a bride and her family is always a task the team at Ruby J Events takes very seriously. They know that they have one chance – and one chance only – to get it right. All the months (and sometimes years) of planning mean nothing if the day doesn’t go as seamlessly as every family expects it to. This Jewish Springtime wedding was no exception, and the results were absolutely incredible!
