Wedding Planners, Wedding Designers & Wedding Coordinators: What’s the Difference?

Posted by on Apr 15, 2016 | 0 comments


So many titles and different job descriptions… what is the difference between the three?

Wedding planners are all about planning the logistics of your wedding. They start with you at the beginning of planning your big day. They help you select your venue, work on your budget, handle all your vendor contract negotiations, and execute your wedding vision on the day of your event.

Wedding designers work specifically with you on your floor plans, flowers, linens, wedding attire, lighting, furniture, and décor. Their job is all about the aesthetics.

Wedding coordinators specialize in day-of or month-of service. They come in after you have secured your venue and vendors. They create a detailed wedding day timeline; confirm all your vendor contracts; and coordinate with all your vendors, the venue(s), and the entire bridal party to ensure a flawless, smooth wedding event. They focus on all the details to make sure everyone is on the same page and on schedule. A wedding coordinator gives brides and grooms the opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy their wedding day stress-free.
