We use these words a lot but really, what is the difference!
1. A wedding planner is your right-hand man(or woman lol) We are there from beginning to end. We assist with finding vendors, venues, design, decor, and handling all the details necessary to ensure only a smooth wedding planning experience but also a smooth wedding day. On the wedding day, we become the Wedding Coordinator so you can continue to relax on your wedding day.
2. Wedding Coordinator (Called day of and/or month of coordinator) is the liaison between you (the bride and groom) and ALL of your vendors. We are assigned the task of Organizing and Leading your event. We can be hired anytime during the planning process but our main objective is to make sure your wedding DAY runs smoothly. Day of Coordination usually starts 2 weeks prior and Month of Coordination starts 4-6 weeks prior. We ensure setup and breakdown of the venue and vendors, draw up the timeline, become your personal maitre d, handle the ceremony rehearsal and ceremony and a wealth of other things to ensure your wedding day runs smoothly.
3. Venue Coordinator is your liaison between you and the hotel/venue staff. They are your first point of contact and probably the person you met with when you initially toured the venue. Their main objective is to make sure they have covered all aspects of your event as it pertains to their venue. All other aspects of your wedding technically do not concern them. They are not your wedding planners. They handle your tastings, room block and ensure on your wedding day, the room (s) are set up per your previous discussions and that the vendors are there per the information you (the bride and groom) have given them. After the cake cutting, they will leave your event and a maitre d takes over.
