A wedding coordinator typically handles all of the details about a month prior to the wedding. They will confirm and finalize details with vendors and create a timeline for the day. The day before the wedding, they will coordinate your rehearsal, collect your decor and supervise the load-in of any rentals. On wedding day, they're the go-to person for all vendor questions. They set up all of your personal decor, ensure the day runs smoothly, get you down the aisle, make sure your dress gets bustled and packs everything up at the end of the night!
A wedding planner does everything you see above plus so much more. They're there to guide you through every step of the planning process from picking out your flowers to finding that perfect linen to making sure the caterer can get that specific cut of steak your dad just has to have served. Wedding planners are very involved and are a must-have if you have no idea where to begin in the planning process!
Mistaking your Venue Coordinator or Catering Manager for a Wedding Coordinator is something we are all too familiar with. In fact, Katie used to be the Sr. Venue Coordinator for Mission Inn Resort.
Your Venue Coordinator is the back bone of your venue. They ensure everything at the venue runs smoothly. They create menus, finalize floor plans, answer venue-related questions and make sure the banquet team is on point on the big day. On wedding day they may be conducting site visits, tastings or juggling multiple events. While it might seem that they also help coordinate rehearsals, setup decor, bustle dresses and coordinate with vendors, these are not their responsibilities.
