Venue Coordinator vs. Wedding Coordinator
Congratulations! You got engaged, now what?
You may be thinking, “Do I even need a wedding coordinator? I could probably plan it, and my venue has a coordinator”. However, a venue coordinator’s responsibilities differ from a wedding coordinator’s responsibilities.
Wedding coordinators work for YOU and are with you during every step of the planning process. They work alongside you to plan your wedding day from the moment you wake up until you are on your way home. Wedding coordinators will ensure that you have a stress-free day.
Now, what are the main differences between the two types of coordinators, and what services do each provide?
