What is the difference between an wedding coordinator and wedding planner?
The short answer to this question is that a Planner will help you on the front end such as finding and contracting your vendors, consulting you on your budget, and guiding you on a vision and theme. They can come in at the very beginning of your planning process (which is what we recommend!), but also are sometimes seen coming in during the process to help the Client regain control of her planning process. A Coordinator too can be contracted at any time during the planning process, but typically don't ramp up with tasks until about 2-8 weeks before the wedding date. They are to work on behalf of the Client within the parameters of the contracts already established between the Client and their hired vendors.
Can't i just assign the duties to a friend or family member?
This strategy is typical, but highly not recommended. When it comes to a Wedding Event, it’s easy to forget sometimes that this too is a chance for your loved ones to embrace such an exciting time of you and your fiancés life. The day of your event is the day when they get to JOIN you in celebration. Let them celebrate, and try to avoid putting them to work and missing all of the fun, whether they volunteer themselves or not.
