Your day of coordinator works in your best interest to handle all your wedding details.

Venue coordinators often don’t handle things such as timelines, rehearsals, ceremony, and outside vendor logistics.

A. The big difference is usually at what point in your planning stage your planner starts to be involved. A full service planner will help you with ALL the details from vendor contracts to design and everything in between as well as being there on the day to ensure you have a stress free wedding day. A day of coordinator is typically not involved in the vendor booking process and takes the plans you have already made and ensures everything and everyone is in place on your day so that you have a wonderful experience.

A. Yes. We have packages that include this or you can add on time to have your coordinator assist with this. Some restrictions may apply so be sure to go over your plans with our sales team and/or your coordinator.
