Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between you as a wedding planner and a venue coordinator?
Both a planner and a venue coordinator are great to have on wedding day. While a few venues may offer full-service packages that include all inclusive wedding planners, most do not. The venue-provided coordinator will ensure the venue is prepped, venue rules are followed, and provide knowledge of the venue (ex: light operations or where the toilet paper is for the bathroom).
A wedding planner works with the couple on a personal-level to guarantee every small heart-felt detail is covered. Wedding planners will create your timelines, coordinate with your vendors, execute decor, make you both a plate to enjoy during dinner, cue the DJ when transitions happen, ensure the wedding party isn't in the bathroom during their toasts, place special items like the guest book, keep track of your marriage license, make sure there is a cake plate on the table when it is cake-cutting time, and so much more. Our job is to give you peace of mind. We have your back every step of the way! Everyone deserves the chance to soak up each moment of their special day.
