Claire has loved weddings for as long as she can remember. From a young age she remembers staying home sick from school to watch Four Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress all day. She graduated from Aquinas College after moving to Grand Rapids from Chicago, where she was born and raised. After graduation she spent over 5 years in the service industry before moving to Spring Lake to be with her fiancé, Chris. There, they keep busy caring for their spoiled 3-year-old pup, Riggs, watching movies in their mini home-theater, and completing home-improvement projects. Claire also keeps busy either on a run, practicing her calligraphy or enjoying a glass of Cabernet with friends and family.

As an Enneagram 1, Claire’s main focus will be to make your day as perfect as she possibly can. Her eye for detail and creative side will ensure nothing falls through the cracks and you are able to enjoy the day as you always envisioned it. Her favorite part of a wedding is seeing all of the small, personal details come together to show the thought that the couple put into the day the love they share for one another.

Claire Childers
Wedding Coordinator

Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan

I was hesitant if I actually needed a wedding coordinator and I am so happy I did. Without a doubt it was worth every penny! From beginning to end The Best Day Details was on top of everything and made sure all the small details that I wouldn't think on on our wedding day were addressed. We had Claire as our wedding coordinator and she is so sweet and really went up and beyond for my husband and I. From hanging up our decorations, to making sure everything was on time, everyone was where they needed to be and to cleaning up at the end of the night. She made the flow of our wedding so seamlessly. I am so glad we had The Best Day Details on our wedding day. -Allie 9/4/21

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you to Claire for all of her help on our wedding day. I really don't think we would have been able to do it without her. Claire and her assistant went above and beyond the call of duty - doing all of the running around, wiping of chairs after it rained (more than once...), and putting out all the decor just as I had envisioned. If I ever have anyone that needs a coordinator - I will be sure to send them their way! Thank you again for helping to make our special day so perfect. -Sandra 8/21/21

We worked with Claire and she was amazing!. She always answered questions fast and offered her help with anything we needed. The day of our wedding, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. It was a roller coaster of a day with rain and the weather and she handled everything wonderfully. I would recommend her to anyone that asked! - Abby 10/8/21

Claire was our coordinator for our wedding at The Downtown Market. She was absolutely phenomenal and kept the day going so smoothly (not to mention she’s so sweet and kind)!! I didn’t have to worry about one thing and Claire was always two steps ahead and ready for anything! She decorated for us better than I could have ever imagined and truly went above and beyond! All night (and still a week later) people couldn’t stop talking about how great of a job she’s done! I was on the fence about getting a coordinator at first and finally decided to add one and it truly was the best decision I could have made for the wedding! 20/10 would recommend Claire and The Best Day Details to anyone looking for a coordinator! - Stacy 11/27/21

When I tell you that Claire and her assistant Kelsey were worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY, I am not even exaggerating a little bit. Due to Covid-19, like so many couples, my husband and I had to completely switch gears and change the date and venue of our wedding. We went from planning a wedding at a Brewery in Chicago with its own event planning staff/kitchen/decor, to planning a small wedding on my parents property in MI. This meant having to do everything ourselves, which was something we’d really tried to avoid, as neither of us are the “detail oriented” type. We didn’t want or need a full-blown wedding planner, since the wedding was small and relatively low-key, but we knew we needed help with day-of coordination. We wanted to be able to sit back and enjoy every moment of our wedding day and leave the nitty gritty to someone else. We knew we liked Claire the instant we met her (over zoom, as we live in NYC). She wanted to get to know US first and foremost, our story, asked what we’ve liked and disliked as guests at other people’s weddings. Where as other wedding coordinators we’d interviewed had tried to convince us that we needed more services and tried to get us to go with more expensive planning packages, Claire never tried to sell us anything. She simply listened to what we wanted and explained what our options were, and what the company offers. Our package included 3 meetings prior to the wedding, each of which was incredibly helpful and informative, and left us feeling like we were on the right track. Claire was not in charge of any of the planning, but her knowledge and experience helped guide us along, and consider things we’d never have thought of on our own. Claire was always quick to reply whenever I had questions or thoughts. The day before the wedding, Claire kept us on track and organized as we rehearsed, and on our wedding day she and her assistant had every moment of the ceremony and reception HANDLED, down to the very last detail. Their services included set up and break down, and while I had been anxious about the set up and decor, the second they arrived, I felt at ease. I didn’t have to talk to any of the vendors, or micro manage a thing. I was able to kick back, relax, and get ready with my bridesmaids. The space looked absolutely beautiful and exactly as we’d envisioned, most of it having been pieced together via various Pinterest posts I’d emailed to Claire. Later on, as we were partying the night away, Claire approached me to let me know that it was supposed to start raining in 10 minutes, and that she and Kelsey were going to start moving everything under the tent. Sure enough, 10 minutes later, with the bar/gift table/dessert tables/photo booth safely moved inside the tent, it started pouring. We all laughed and then carried on dancing. I couldn’t believe how on top of every last detail Claire and Kelsey were. They even helped do dishes and put together leftover cookie to-go bags at the end of the night. Our wedding was beautiful, a total blast, and went off without a single hitch, and we could not have done it without Claire and Kelsey of Best Day Details! - Maia 9/5/21
