USEFUL  INFORMATION  &  F.A.Q.

What are the main differences between a venue coordinator and wedding planner?

The site coordinator works for the venue, so they work with the kitchen, handle venue logistics and organize their staff. They might also have suggestions as to where the cake table generally goes when they have an event there. 

The wedding planner works for the couple. A planner would discuss decor details with the client beforehand and maybe decide that, even though 90% of the time the venue puts the cake table over there, we want it somewhere else. We do everything from creating custom designs to taking your bridal party’s cell phone numbers in case we need them throughout the day. A site coordinator wouldn’t really know what’s going on the morning of your wedding or when you’re doing your photos because their focus is on the venue itself. It’s a different level of service. 

So, a planner really takes care of an entire day when you think of day-of coordination, whereas a site coordinator is really focused on venue-specific details while you’re at the venue. If you have fireworks, for example, the onsite coordinator would be worried about how they affect the venue, rather than cuing them and making sure people are where they need to be for photos, etc.

What is a #1 tip for couples who are looking to work with a wedding planner?

A couple should hire a planner that offers a service they are expecting to get. A lot of people are really looking for a designer, whereas other people are just looking for someone to guide them in the right direction. Other people are looking for someone to help make DIY projects. You have to hire a planner that does whatever it is that you want because there are so many types of planners. You wouldn’t want to hire someone that isn’t a designer and then be disappointed when they’re not coming up with these elaborate designs for you if they’re more of a consultant.

HOW CAN ONE WEDDING PACKAGE WORK FOR TOTALLY DIFFERENT WEDDINGS AND CLIENTS?

It can't! That's why usually there is a few packages offered. We offer the "A la Carte Hours" option that can be applied to any package. It means endless customization options! 

The way it works: first you decide on a level of service you need to plan your wedding: full care-free experience, some help and guidance with your DIY event, or just the month-of assistance (every package includes a list of essential services we think is necessary for any wedding). Then you decide what extra services you need to add to the list and we calculate an amount of hours that would be required for providing those services. Alternatively, the hours may be calculated later and a report will be attached to an invoice. In any case we always let you know what would be charged extra beforhand, so there is no hidden fees.

A-La-Carte Hours are the perfect way to customize your wedding planning process to suit your needs. Whether you’d like to request extra dramatic floral arrangements or a Rehearsal coordination, we can simply add hours. 

Wedding Consultant? Planner? Designer? Coordinator? What's the Difference?

Basically, these differing designations reflect a special expertise. Usually a "planner" will orchestrate a wedding from start to finish, including all details. Those with a title of "consultant" function more as advisors and will be helpful for DIY couples along the planning process. "Coordinators" oversee everything on the actual wedding day. A "designer" or "stylist" is more focused on the aesthetics of the event. Of course, this doesn't mean that someone who goes by "planner" won't act as a "consultant", or that a "designer" can't coordinate your wedding, but you should certainly always inquire about their expertise.

Now, here's a more elaborate description of what each does and why you might want to hire them:

WEDDING PLANNERS are all about the logistics, from vendor referrals and contract negotiation to day-of execution of your vision. Planners take the guesswork out of the process, making planning a wedding as seamless and smooth as possible. A planner will keep track of your budget and handle the logistics. This is a skill that many can learn, but only the best planners have the years of experience and credentials that sets them above the rest. Some planners also provide design or styling services, helping with the creative specifics of your wedding day, while others opt to leave those details to a wedding designer — which means in that case you'd need to hire two professionals to create the day you've dreamed of. Be sure to discuss whether your planner offers design services, or else read on...

WEDDING DESIGNER. A designer's role is purely aesthetic, and doesn't include things like contract negotiations or attending appointments alongside the bride. They specialize in design, consulting on everything from floor plans and lighting design to the flowers, furniture and linens. They help with the decisions that will give your event a cohesive, stylish and sophisticated look, which is more than choosing linens and chairs - a designer has an artistic eye that allows them to conceptualize the whole event and truly transform a space.

WEDDING CONSULTANTS guide couples that only need some theoretical help. They will be there for you to answer any questions you  might have. Consultants may create timelines, help direct you to vendors, assist in attire selection, explain standards for flower arrangements and navigate you through the ceremony process, but they won't be responsible for major aspects, such as budgeting for example. The day-of coordination is often included in their services, but keep in mind that very often consultants suggest "template" solutions, those that worked out successfully in the past, instead of looking for more personalized and innovative ideas. 

WEDDING COORDINATOR (often a month-of service) is logistically-focused, but on a shorter timeline than a planner. They confirm vendor contracts and create a day-of timeline, as well as make sure things like payments and guest counts are in order, but won't be involved in the earlier planning phases or keeping track of your budget. Hiring a coordinator to take over the month before your wedding gives them time to tweak any details and follow up on loose ends. Everything is in order, nothing is forgotten, and you're free to enjoy your wedding day!
