Plan Your Wedding or Special Event Now!

Just who and what is a wedding coordinator, event planner, etc.

It’s unfortunate but these titles have come to be a catch all for anyone who works with a bride or celebrant. DJ’s, Florists, Caterers, Reception Halls, and yes Churches will claim to have bridal consultants and event planners. This is not only unfortunate but can be tragic for the bride who thinks she is getting a REAL wedding coordinator. Even the individual that is planning their 50 and Fabulous Birthday Bash will be stunned to find out that all she has is a liaison for who is really a Party Store vendor.

Many services boast a wedding coordinator or event planner, when all they are really offering is someone on site to announce and direct elements of a wedding reception, help with the floral or menu selection, supervise the food service or assist at the wedding ceremony/party. What about the planning and obtaining the necessary elements of the entire wedding or event?

Some vendors even claim to provide brides with a list of photographers, florists, etc. Is this vendor really trained to know the budgetary needs and the bride’s personal taste? In addition to those very absent elements in vendor choice, the vendor has not been scrutinized and qualified by a bridal consultant that really has the bride’s interest in mind. Is this vendor partial to a certain group of vendors?
