Day-of Intern ProgramThis program allows interested people to observe and assist with an actual wedding and reception, giving them first-hand insight into the work of a wedding coordinator. This is a one-day internship, normally on a Saturday, so those with full-time jobs during the week are eligible to participate. No training is required.
Job DescriptionA day-of intern will observe and assist the coordinator and coordinator’s assistant with anything needed on the day of the wedding.
DetailsThe internship is unpaid and will typically last five to six hours—from before the ceremony until after the cocktail hour at the reception. Wedding locations are in the Chicagoland area, usually in the city of Chicago. If the intern is interested, he or she may attend the rehearsal as well.
Dress codeProfessional attire is required, preferably so that the intern is dressed similarly to the guests at the wedding. For women, skirt suits or a daytime dresses are suggested (not evening formal wear unless it’s a black-tie wedding); for men, a suit and tie.
BenefitsThis provides an opportunity for the intern to determine whether he or she is interested in pursuing a career in wedding coordination. Internships are also good training ground for a possible assistant position with An Urban Affair.
