Wedding Planner versus Wedding Coordinator

In a conversation about weddings with my friends, the Wedding Planner/Wedding Coordinator will always come up as part of the preparation for the big day. When some brides initially won't know what they are looking for- a coordinator or a planner. Is there even a difference?

A wedding coordinator is the basic essential that bride would need. It is like the bare bones that you need for a happy, stress-free wedding day. A wedding coordinator is a lot like a wedding planner in the sense that both would help a bride organize and pull together your wedding details. Most if not all coordinators are planners as well. Their primary role is to facilitate a smooth-sailing event with the end in mind. They typically step in to the wedding planning from a month to a week from the wedding day.

On the other hand, a wedding planner is someone who will guide you through the entire wedding planning process- from engagement to the grand exit. They are usually hired to help with the venue selection, vendor selection and any details that may come along the way. Unlike the wedding coordinator, wedding planners will jump in to the picture from day 1. They are deeply involved with the wedding plans.

Most of the time people will interchangeably use the terms coordinator and planner since wedding planners are always wedding coordinators. But, wedding coordinators are not always wedding planners. At the end of the day, what is important is to determine what your needs and desires are before you begin contacting potential planners/coordinators. Make sure that your “wants” line up with what is being offered. This also ensures that you are comparing apples to apples once you price out a few options.
