Who’s Who! Venue and Wedding Coordinators

Help with preparing a wedding celebration is available from several wedding professionals, including venue and wedding coordinators. Finding the right service providers for your specific needs is key.

Here is a look at the typical service menu provided by venue coordinators and wedding coordinators:

If you are torn between booking a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want someone to load your car up with decorations at the end of the night?
  • Do you want someone coordinating with the photographer, or helping gather the family for photos?
  • Are you making your own centerpieces, and need someone designated to set them out for you?
  • Do you need a timeline made from the second you wake up, to the second the wedding has ended?
  • If you are taking off-site pictures or having an off-site ceremony, will you need someone to transport decorations or flowers to the venue?
  • Do you need a detailed and organized spreadsheet, floor plan, or seating chart for your wedding?
  • Do you need someone to attend your vendor and venue meetings with you?
  • Do you need help styling, and selecting colors, decorations, centerpieces or save the dates?
  • Do you need help managing a budget?

If your answers are YES, the wedding coordinator would do all of these with and for you.
