One of the things we love most about weddings is their diversity; no two are ever the same. From a 200-person black-tie affair at the Art Museum to a group of 50 in an elegant backyard wedding. Big or small, having a point person who understands your unique wedding day wishlist is crucial. Let’s break down the myth of the “Day-Of” Wedding Planner.
You’ve spent months, (or even years) dreaming up and planning this wedding. A “day-of” wedding planner ensures that everything goes according to plan. The wedding day timeline is followed, vendors arrive on time and with the correct items, setup moves smoothly, the cake is set up exactly where you want…the list goes on. That’s what is at the heart of the role for an event and wedding planner, making sure all those pieces of the puzzle come together exactly how you envisioned it to be.
Let’s go back to our puzzle piece example. Imagine your wedding day as a 500 piece puzzle. With them all dumped out on a table, it would take a while to figure out what pieces go where. So imagine if a planner just showed up on your wedding day. They would have absolutely no idea which piece went where! It would be a scramble at best to put all the pieces together.
They don’t know your family or your relationship. They’re likely not familiar with your venue or vendors. Or they may be using an unrealistic timeline or don’t know a good wedding day flow.
They are basically sent to put out fires on your wedding day. And while there is something to be said for having a go-to person for when things go wrong, we know most wedding couples want more than that. Instead, we provide proactive guidance designed around your wedding day wishes. That’s why at Events to a T we step in 90 days prior to your big day to begin the communication process!
We call our “day of” wedding planning package “The Classic.” This option is for clients who have already done much of the planning and have a really good grasp on their wedding day events. They want to enjoy every moment of their wedding day, having someone take care of all the details without burdening their family or friends.
We’re not just there on your wedding day; we start the wedding planning process with you about 90 days out from your wedding.
Get in touch with us at any stage of your wedding planning, and we can help you. Clients often come to us overwhelmed and concerned that they are “too late.” We’re here to tell you that we can help you at any stage of the planning process.
Like all good things in life, it starts with a conversation where we hear about your hopes, dreams, and even your fears about your wedding. We know you have them! It’s okay to worry about your wedding day and want it to go perfectly. And believe us, no question or fear is silly!

We have years of experience as Milwaukee’s high-end wedding planners. With our proprietary and essential wedding planning guides, we ensure that no detail is overlooked. It helps us (and you!) make sure that every detail is ticked off the list.
We’re all about dotting those i’s, and of course, crossing those t’s. It’s right in our business name!
We’ll start by meticulously going over all your wedding day plans. We’ll look over your wedding vendor contracts & highlight any missing pieces; we’ll make sure all those final details are coming together perfectly.
We’ve got docs, charts, spreadsheets, and we’ll check in with you monthly to make sure everything is on track and to make sure you’re feeling great about the big day coming up.
We create and customize a wedding day timeline for each of our clients. It serves as is the beating heart of the day for a wedding planner. Here’s an example of one of our trusted timeline docs. We customize your timeline to you because your wedding day needs are unique. It’s important for us to have the inside scoop on everything. Like that bridesmaid you told us is always running late – we scheduled her first at the salon so she has some extra time.
Plan B’s? We’ve got them. And Plan C’s, too. We’ll talk over all the different scenarios of your wedding day plans. That way, we can adjust quickly; without disruption or stress.
Then we take the timeline and review it with all the vendors. We make sure all the major players at your wedding are #teamyourwedding, and everyone is in it to win it!
We’ll do a final walkthrough of the reception location, ensuring everything is ready to go. We leave nothing to chance.
You’ll wake up feeling excited and ready, without a worry; doesn’t that sound nice? That’s the big payoff of investing in a wedding planner! Your day is yours to take it all in. The love, the laughter, the excitement of seeing all the people you love in one place.
We’ll oversee the setup, help with final touches, and then get you down that aisle! At the reception, we’ll do our thing; coordinate all the moving parts, make sure your vendors are doing their thing; all while you marry the person you love. We might even get out on the dance floor with you to celebrate!
At the end of the night, we’ll oversee the take-down. We’ll send you and your guest on your way with plenty of hugs and high-fives. That’s the way you want to end an amazing day!
From creative ideas and solutions to the final touches on the day of your dreams, we can help you with any size wedding with our Classic wedding coordination. It’s just a better solution than day-of planning!
