Okay so you've booked your venue and it supplies you with a venue coordinator. So you don't need a wedding planner, right. Wrong! Let's simply breakdown the difference between the two.
There are significate differences between a wedding planner and a venue coordinator.
A venue coordinator is a liason to all of the event staff within the venue (chefs, servers, bartenders, banqet team, valets, security.) They arrange tastings and assistes with the on-site experience.
Responsibilities: showcasing the venue, consulting food and beverage choices, and catering needs
On the day of their focus is on delivering the contracted services and setup of the venue.
A wedding planner works with the venue coordinator, but also works with you, from beginning to the end of your wedding. Your wedding planner becomes your personal consultant and mangement of your entire wedding experience.
Responsibilities: time mangement, budget management, vendor contracts, design planning, and ettiquette
On the day of their focus is on making sure your entire day is managed and includes all the aspects that you have envisioned.
