“You are probably more familiar with the term ‘Day of Coordinator’! That doesn’t really exist.”

You’ve picked the date. You’ve booked the venue. You’ve got the dress. Now all you need is the perfect wedding… our wedding management service, otherwise known as a day of coordinator, is the guidance you need to pull your wedding together. We prefer to use the term wedding management, as it better describes the time and attention we give to your wedding details, the standards we uphold and the logistics we manage to ensure your wedding goes off without a hitch. Our work begins as least 2-3 months leading up to your wedding day. We coordinate your vendors, develop floor plans, construct time lines and stay in constant communication with your caterer to ensure your cocktail reception and dining experience will run smoothly and live up to your expectations. Once the day finally arrives, we make sure we are there on your wedding day, to make sure that your vision is seamlessly achieved.

*Please note booking Bash wedding management services begins 6 months to 2 months prior to your wedding date.


Each wedding is unique, and similar to full wedding planning services, it is difficult to determine specific pricing without knowing more about the wedding details you have already planned, and where you need our assistance. With wedding management services, Bash works on an agreed upon number of pre-wedding planning hours and includes wedding day coordination. Please inquire for more details 203-202-7780.
