MY VENUE IS ALREADY PROVIDING ME WITH A COORDINATOR. DO I NEED A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PLANNER OR COORDINATOR?

While both a venue-provided wedding coordinator and a professional wedding planner contribute to the success of your big day, they have distinct roles and levels of involvement.

A wedding coordinator provided by the venue typically focuses on aspects directly related to the venue's facilities and services. They help ensure that the venue's offerings are smoothly executed on the day of the event. Their responsibilities might include coordinating the timing of the ceremony and reception, overseeing the setup of tables and chairs, and managing the venue's staff. However, they will not be there to cater to all of your specific needs and requests, manage all of the vendors, or do on-site styling of personal decor, as their focus is on the operations of the venue itself.

A professional wedding planner, on the other hand, is your dedicated partner throughout the entire wedding planning process. We offer comprehensive services, from the initial stages of brainstorming and design to the execution on the wedding day. Our responsibilities extend beyond the venue to encompass vendor selection, budget management, design and theme guidance, timeline creation, and handling unforeseen challenges. Our goal is to curate a cohesive, personalized, and stress-free wedding experience that reflects your unique love story.

WHEN SHOULD I HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?

As soon as possible! Your wedding planner should be one of the first vendors that you secure so that you to benefit from our expertise throughout the entire planning journey.

 

If you're planning a shorter engagement or have already made significant progress in planning your big day, you can hire a planner at any point when you feel their guidance would be valuable. Keep in mind that popular wedding dates and venues can book up quickly, so hiring a planner sooner rather than later can help ensure you get the best options. ​

 

Ultimately, the timing is flexible and should align with your preferences and needs. The earlier you bring us on board, the more we can help you navigate decisions, recommend vendors, and streamline the planning process!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WEDDING PLANNER AND A WEDDING COORDINATOR?

A wedding planner is your partner throughout the entire wedding planning process, from budgeting and vendor selection to event design and logistics. Wedding planners provide comprehensive services, from the initial stages of conceptualizing your wedding to the execution on the day itself. We offer guidance on etiquette, traditions, and trends, we provide personalized solutions to challenges that may arise, and we ensuring all aspects of your wedding come together cohesively.

A wedding coordinator focuses on executing plans on the wedding day. Our goal is to ensure flawless execution and deliver an exceptional event for you and your guests. We confirm all details with vendors and ensure they are on schedule, we oversee the setup of the ceremony and reception venues, we do on-site styling of personal items and decor, we address any unexpected issues that arise during the event, and we ensure that you and your guests are comfortable and informed throughout the day.

Both roles are valuable, with planners providing full-service support and coordinators ensuring a smooth day-of experience. At Unparalleled Weddings & Events, we offer both planning and coordination services!
