Wedding Planner vs. Day of Coordinator

Posted on January 23, 2019 at 3:05 PM

I have noticed in the past few years there had been confusion on what a day of coordinator is vs. an event planner. As of recently this year; I was asked "A day of coordinator is actually like a thing?", and "Sorry I am new to this planning stuff and I have no idea what a planner/coordinator does." Hopefully I can help answer this!

A day of coordinator is a professional planner who helps support and coordinate the day of the event. The day of coordinator takes all the planning the client has done and puts it all together to ensure the day runs smooth. A day of coordinator works behind the scenes with the vendors assisting where needed and taking care of issues that may arise. This also includes assisting with rehearsals, reception, set up, tear down, and assisting guests. All coordinators offer different services so be sure to ask questions!

A wedding planner is a professional assisting the client plan their day. They may help with venue selection, vendors, budget, timelines, organization, invitations, RSVP coordination and follow ups, design, decorating and much more. Some wedding planners offer day of coordination in their packages too. All wedding planners offer different services and packages.

We offer all of these services, and we customize every package to fit your needs! Please reach out to Michelle for your free consultation and quote.

Happy Planning!
