It’s funny how often I get the questions “So what exactly do you do”? I am a Full Service Wedding Planner so I do a heck of a lot of things but not all wedding planners are created equal. Here is a little break down of the different types of wedding planners and a general description of their jobs!
Full Service Wedding Planner: To give you the long and short it is a Full Service Coordinators job to handle all things wedding for their couples. Our Full Service Package includes: Designing the look and feel of your wedding, Hotel accommodations & room block set up, Budget management & tracking of payments, Contract review of all vendor contracts, RSVP tracking & management, Coordination of all vendors & rentals, Unlimited consultation, emails, & phone correspondence, Attendance at all necessary vendor meetings, the final walkthrough & ceremony rehearsal, Creation of a detailed timeline for the day of the wedding and obviously day of coordination and assistance the entire day of the wedding. This is just a quick description but we truly do so much more. If you have a budget where you can spring for a Full Service Coordinator you will NOT regret it! We will save you money and time on the tedious things you would hate doing.
Month Of Coordinator: This is the type of planner that will step in one month from the wedding. This type of planner will step in at your final walk through and ask all of the tough questions you may never have thought to ask. With our Month Of Coordination package we are in correspondence with our brides through the whole process and are always here to answer questions or recommend vendors.
Day Of Coordinator: A Day of Coordinator is someone who steps in only on the day of the wedding to make sure that the day goes smoothly and that the day continues moving forward. They are supposed to know all the details and make sure the couples needs are met! We don’t offer this service because we don’t believe that its enough, so our Month Of Coordination package is our version!
Venue Coordinator: It is the Venue Coordinators job to make sure the venue is taken care of! Most venues come with this service but it is not their job to create your timeline, set up and tear down personal items, or coordinate deliveries and other vendors. There are times when this may seem like a comprehensive service when signing a contract with the venue but often this is something that will let brides down in the end. Don’t be disappointed and hire a Day Of or Month Of Coordinator to assist you in planning those details that aren’t just about the venue!
Planning a wedding is hard work but we are pretty damn good at is! Let Promise Event Planners create the best day of your life. You wont regret spending money on the extra help!
