Day of Wedding Coordination

To ensure a flawless event, Shreveport Aquarium encourages you to utilize a Professional Wedding Planner or Coordinator. This investment for having your wedding in the hands of a professional is priceless. For those couples who have all the planning under control, we do include day of coordination as part of our wedding packages.

Our Onsite Event Coordinator will assist you with room diagrams, timelines and day of coordi
nation. This is not a full coordination service. We are happy to answer questions and give advice but the service only pertains to the services we are providing for your event.

  • Help you choose the best event space and bar package to meet your needs

  • Work with our chef to help you decide on menu items
