Planner v Coordinator... Do you know the difference??

Getting your head around all the wedding lingo can be a bit of a mission!

Today we are going to look at the difference between a Wedding Planner and a Wedding Coordinator.

Here are some of the things a Wedding Planner does:

  • Full end to end wedding planning

  • Researching, setting up meetings and confirming all vendors

  • Arrange your wedding design and décor

  • Arrange all hire items

  • Arranges all stationery

  • Manage your wedding budget

  • Creates a Day of Runsheet

  • On the day setup & vendor coordination

When you would use a Wedding Planner?

  • You are working to a tight timeframe

  • You tend to not be very organized

  • You want your wedding to be stress free

  • You want to make the key decisions but not coordinate the logistics

What Impact does hiring a Wedding Planner have on your day?

Check out this testimonial which highlights of the impact hiring Handcrafted Weddings as your Wedding Planner:

"We got married on the 22/10/22 and the whole day would not have been possible without Odette- she is amazing. She helped us from the early stages of planning- recommending and selecting vendors, styling and all the on day coordination and set up. She made sure my morning was spent relaxing with a glass of bubbles :), along with a celebratory glass at the end of the ceremony. The list of what Odette helped us with is enormous and we are are so grateful! A wedding planner may not be high on peoples priority list when planning a wedding but Odette was worth every cent and our best vendor. Can not recommend her highly enough."

Check out this testimonial which highlights of the impact hiring Handcrafted Weddings as your Wedding coordinator:

"We hired Odette to be our wedding coordinator and she did a phenomenal job! Odette went above and beyond to make the day special and was always behind the scenes making sure things ran smoothly - in fact, she was pivotal to the day. Not only did Odette capably coordinate people and handle logistics, she also brought all sorts of valuable experience, ideas and special touches which elevated the day. Odette knew exactly how to set up and optimise the wedding space to make the ceremony flow, coordinated the vendors, kept things running to time, made sure the grazing table looked spectacular, and was the go-to person whenever anyone had a question. This was all done after being hired on short notice. And on top of all that, she is so friendly and wonderful to deal with. We are so appreciative of Odette and can’t recommend her enough"
