The Difference Between A Wedding Planner And A Venue Coordinator
In this episode we discuss the difference between a wedding planner and a venue coordinator.  Like most brides, you may be wondering what the difference between an on-site venue coordinator and a wedding planner is. It’s common to initially think that hiring a wedding planner as well as a venue which supplies an onsite coordinator is essentially the same thing. If you think that you would be paying for two identical services, you are oh so wrong. So, to avoid all confusion, let us differentiate Long story short: A wedding planner works for you. They are there from day one, to assist you throughout your engagement and with many aspects of your wedding. A venue coordinator on the other hand works for the venue you have hired and is only in service for the day of the wedding.
