Day of Coordinator vs. Wedding Planner

What is the difference between a wedding planner and a day of wedding coordinator?

 A full-service wedding planner handles everything for the couple, from start to finish. A wedding planner’s job includes the design and vision of wedding, they help keep couples within their budgets, they recommend and contact vendors, as well as being present the day of the wedding to help execute what is contracted.

so what does a day of coordinator do? A day coordinator will jump into the process typically a month prior to the wedding date, usually to help those couples who are planning the wedding themselves.

A day of coordinator will be available for anything you may need prior to the wedding. There job is to get everything organized as you lead up to the day of the wedding. They are there to take over on the day of the wedding to ensure that all details that are planned are executed. They make sure that all vendors stay on timeline.As we like to say,  a day of coordinator is essential for any couple who wants to do most of the planning themselves, but when their wedding day arrives, they need a professional to execute all of their hard work and planning. Having a professional day of coordinator there to handle the logistics is so essential because a wedding couple should be able to enjoy themselves at their wedding and not worry about anything!
