Venue Planner VS Wedding Planner

Occasionally, I have a bride who is trying to decide whether or not she needs a wedding planner since her venue offers an in-house coordinator. There is quite the difference between these two. Here are just a few of the many things that a wedding planner can help with that a venue in-house planner can’t:

  • Attending vendor meetings with you and asking the right questions
  • Reviewing all your contracts for errors or potential problems
  • Helping you combine all the elements and create an overall wedding style
  • Creating extensive time lines for you
  • Staying in touch with your vendors and making final confirmations
  • Have back-up reputable vendors to contact in case of a problem
  • Assist you with invitations and stationary etiquette
  • Provide you with custom planning resources

I could list many more. There are many venue in-hour coordinators who do a great job managing the venue but it isn’t there job to assist you with all the details, etiquette, time lines, etc that go along with planning your wedding.
