Why choose a wedding planner over a wedding coordinator? These days, there are a lot of service providers that can help you plan the Big Day and choosing the right one can make the whole difference in the world.


What is the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator and why would you choose the first over the latter? Read on and find out more.

  • A wedding planner usually provides services that cover a broader area of expertise. Depending on the package you sign up for, a wedding planner will help you with a lot of wedding planning-issues. For instance, there are wedding planners that will only help you with the décor and wedding planners that will give you a “blueprint” on how to plan your wedding and advise you only when you are confused about certain things. Also, there are full-service planners that will help you plan the wedding from A to Z.
  • A coordinator normally focuses on very specific parts of the wedding. For example, there are wedding coordinators who only help with the wedding dress search, coordinators that only help with the wedding registry, and so on.
  • Why choose a wedding planner over a wedding coordinator, though? The main reason is related to the fact that a planner can make everything much easier for you. While coordinators can be really qualitative when it comes to the service they offer and while hiring one will benefit you up to a certain extent, a wedding planner will have the expertise to help you plan every detail of your wedding in a hassle-free way.

Regardless of whether you choose to hire a wedding planner, a wedding coordinator or to do everything on your own, remember that this day should be 100% special. Renting one of the carriages offered by Vintage Carriage Company is a great option when it comes to this, so make sure you do it if you want your Big Day to be really unforgettable!
