Wedding Coordinators vs. Venue Coordinators: "But Wait, Aren't They The Same Thing?"

"Oh, I don't need a wedding coordinator, my venue has a coordinator!" 

Unfortunately, this is a sentence we hear from couples far too often + we are here to tell you that wedding coordinators + venue coordinators are NOT the same thing! Let us break it down for you ;)

Look at their title + you'll know exactly what they are responsible for: wedding coordinators are there to assist + manage the wedding as a whole while venue coordinators, yup you guessed it, just focus on the venue! Mother-in-law being a nightmare? Did Maid of Honor spill red wine on her dress? Cake topper nowhere to be found? Wedding coordinator to the rescue! While its great to ensure you have a venue coordinator to make sure the venue is in tip top shape, let the wedding coordinator professionals handle the small details the day of! We will become your best friend, confidant, + right hand man to do anything + everything needed to make your wedding day a flawless success! 

Check out the responsibilities of the two job titles below for a clearer understanding of your vendors + what they are responsible for handling.
