What does a Day-Of Coordinator do exactly?
- We get to know every detail of your wedding so that we know it as well as you do. We will even help you create a timeline for your event so that nothing is missed. Once your day arrives, we take care of everything – greet your wedding professionals, oversee set up ensuring every last detail is to your specifications, coordinate your wedding party, and the events of the evening - When you have driven off to begin your happily ever after, we even take care of cleaning everything up.
What is the difference between an On-Site Coordinator and a Day-Of Coordinator?
- In the simplest terms, an On-Site Coordinator works for the venue, a Day-Of Coordinator (DoC) works for you. But obviously it is more than that! A DoC handles all of the details on your wedding day so you – and everyone you love – can enjoy your day.
If I have an On-Site Coordinator, do I really need a Day-Of Coordinator?
- That depends – some venues have amazing On-Site Coordinators that will cater to your every need. But most venues only provide a person to open the door and lock up at the end of the evening – or perhaps they only supervise the catering staff or follow the timeline. Make sure you are clear which function your On-Site Coordinator will perform.
Will you travel?
- Though we are located in Austin, Texas we are more than happy to travel anywhere a couple in love needs us. Rather than increase prices across the board, we decided to adopt a travel fee for locations requiring more than an hour travel time – usually a tank of gas or overnight accommodations depending on location.
What is an Officiant?
- The Officiant is the person that performs the ceremony and can be secular or non-secular. At Carefree Weddings, all of our Officiants are Open to All. Love is love.
Can you do religious ceremonies?
- Although most of our weddings tend to be non-denominational, many incorporate elements of religion. Every ceremony is crafted to reflect each couple’s unique love though we do have a large selection of past ceremonies to get you started.
I don’t live in Austin – do I have to have a Travis County marriage license?
- In the state of Texas, you can get your marriage license in any county in the state and be married in any county in the state. It is not specific to where the ceremony takes place. The license cannot be obtained more than 89 days and no less than 72 hours prior to the wedding.
