The type of Wedding Professional you choose to hire for your Wedding can ultimately help with the amount of stress you have during your planning process. Let me break it down for you on the types of planners out there to help you better decide on the right fit.
Wedding Planner: A wedding planner will be with you from start to finish. They keep you on budget, recommend vendors, help with design, facilitate venue tours, and of course, they are there the entire day of your wedding. This is the ultimate wedding person if you need that extra guidance during the entire process.
Wedding Coordinators: Wedding Coordinators ARE different than Planners, but you don’t need both! Wedding Coordinators focus on the logistics to ensure your wedding day runs smoothly. Packages will typically start 8-10 weeks prior to your big day and ensure all the details (and any stress) is passed off. They will connect with the vendors that have already been hired, create a timeline based on your contracts, go through your design details, and so much more! This is my specialty, and Wedding Day Management is what I love!
Venue Coordinator: This would be a paid employee of the venue, which is already included in the cost of your venue. t is important to remember, that their priority is the venue. If you are using a full-service venue, they will also be in charge of catering and room layouts. Most venues will not take care of décor rented from out-of-side vendors. I am am hired a lot to manage vendors who also have a Venue Coordinator to ensure the investment of the couples is being looked after.
Wedding Designers: Wedding Designers’ focus is on the aesthetic of your day. They bring the event together and keep everything cohesive and keep the eye focused. If you’re stuck in your design process, it’s time to reach out, as a lot of professionals offer this at an hourly rate.
Stylizing Crew: If you have everything planned and organized but need a hand in setting up or tearing down, you may want to look at hiring a team to take some of the pressure off. reach out to your rental companies, as this is typically a service they offer!
