So today I want to tell you what is the difference between the Wedding Planner and Event coordinator.
This is a common mistake made by couples and than end up being disappointed before their wedding day or on the day. Your Wedding Day is meant to be One of the best days of your life, so let me help you.
I have been an event coordinator before and I will try to make this very clear for you.
Event Coordinator works for a specific venue, NOT FOR YOU!
They will make sure that everything works perfectly for the venue and that they make money on it, they will not do anything just for you. Unfortunately !
They might also try to incorporate some hidden charges and surprise you with it when you really don’t need it.
Regarding the actual organisation of your wedding day, they will not corporate closely with the other suppliers like florists for example, which might mean that flowers will be in a different place than you imagined or something worse.
The Wedding Planner will take care of everything for you, from making sure that all the suppliers work with each other and deliver items on time, and that all the elements are in the right places.
They will also make sure that the guests are in the right place at the right time, they will deal with bridesmaids braking down because they just got dumped by their boyfriend or making sure that uncle Bob makes it to the Wedding after that double whisky at the bar.
Don’t forget that they will also have an emergency kit with them, for sawing emergencies or to repair your make up after emotional speech.
I hope this helped a little bit and you will choose wisely.
