PLANNING + COORDINATION
So whats the difference between a planner and a coordinator? Good question!
A wedding planner is great for those who have no f**king idea where to even begin with planning a wedding. We can recommend venues or caterers, develop a styling design, book in photographers, send out your invites.. you name it! Our planning services are charged by the hour, so you can use us for as much or as little of the planning process as you need.
A wedding coordinator is great for those who want to be completely hands-off on the day. So you’ve got the catering turning up at the same time as the furniture hire, and the DJ and someone needs to be there to let them in, tell them where to set up and make sure it all matches your vision. Then someone has to cue the entrance song, tell the MC when to speak, get the catering on the table in-between the Best Man and the Father’s speeches.. Are you going to do all that? On your wedding day? HELLS NO! You’re busy getting more beautiful and drinking champagne. A wedding coordinator will oversee the logistics for you and make sure everything is set up and runs smoothly.
“Thank you for being such a lovely person to work with – I think from the very first moment we met you, we felt that we could just leave it all in your capable hands, there was no need to oversee anything or direct you because we knew you ‘just got’ what we were aiming for.”
