The Wedding Planner vs. the Venue Coordinator

 

As we head into prime wedding season, it is a good time to revisit the dilemma so many engaged couples face – if you have found your venue, and it offers a “venue coordinator,” or “wedding coordinator,” is there any need to hire an independent wedding planner?

Many couples make the mistake of thinking that the two roles are the same, or at least very similar. Yes, there can be some overlap, but not much. In order to save you from finding out the hard way, we hope this post gives some clarification.

With the start of fall, the holiday season will be here before we know it. If you haven’t started thinking about planning your corporate holiday party or event, now is the time to book your venue or restaurant, get the guest list ready, and decide on decor, menu, and entertainment!

Here are 3 tips to help you get started planning your holiday party or event:

  1. Determine your guest count and budget for the event. Before choosing a venue for your holiday event, it’s important to know the approximate budget and expected guest count for your party. Create a rough guest list first and confirm the budget range with your team.
  2. Consider unique locations such as art galleries, lofts, restaurants, private home rentals, wineries, breweries, and historic mansions to host your event. Denver has so many incredible options to choose from!
  3. Hire a professional event planner to assist with venue selection, budget planning, theme/style/design, booking the caterer, hiring AV services, managing rentals, selecting and sending invitations, managing RSVP’s, and coordinating the event. An experienced Denver event planner will not only save you hours of time, she will work with you to create a unique and memorable event that inspires and delights your guests.

Hyatt Regency Denver | Bridal Lunch

vintage tea set bridal lunch bridal lunch pedicabs denver colorado bridal lunch pedicabs denver colorado potted flowers bridal lunch denver colorado potted flowers bridal lunch denver colorado vintage tea set bridal lunch vintage tea set bridal lunch vintage tea set bridal lunch bridal lunch tea denver coloradoWe had the honor of planning a special lunch for Shannon Gray and her very close girlfriends. We had 25 pedi cabs pick up the ladies at the Brown Palace Hotel and bring them to the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver. People were waving and honking on the whole ride over and it was a real treat for all the guests!

We decided to go with a garden tea party theme that would incorporate a large display of family china. The center of the brunch was a large display of wedding china from 15 of Shannon’s female family members.

It was a great way to kick off the wedding weekend festivities and for the ladies to get to know each other. The centerpieces brought a bright touch to the tables and were actual plants that Shannon took home and planted in her garden.
