On-site coordinators and wedding planners have different job duties and responsibilities. On-site coordinators at your wedding venue are necessary for things to go as expected. How are they different from wedding planners? What exactly do they do? And do you need both? If you’re about to be planning Omaha weddings, keep reading to find out!
What on-site coordinators do
On-site coordinators or event planners are there to care for the venue and make sure things go smoothly. They assist with planning your seating chart because they know the floor plan, manage the vendors coming in and out on your wedding day and help handle the flow of traffic. They essentially prepare the venue to have your wedding, and they can answer any questions about what the venue can and cannot do.
They also assist with other important tasks that seem little but make all the difference, such as making sure the air conditioning works in the summer or heating in the winter. If any last minute changes come up, like the weather beginning to rain on your outdoor wedding, they can calmly lead you and your guests inside. If the venue is full-service, they may offer a linen selection and tasting of the food they can provide.
How they’re different from wedding planners
These two roles have their differences; on-site coordinators organize according to your wedding venue, whereas wedding planners help assist with your entire wedding. Wedding planners have more in-depth experience in composing your ideas and colors into a successful wedding. They get everything done on time, including things like invitation send-outs, so you can feel less stress and more excitement.
Wedding planners help create and stick to budgets. They book your chosen vendors, photographers, bakers, caterers and entertainment, whether you choose a DJ or live band. They also put you in touch with florists and designers. If anything changes in the midst of planning your wedding, they’re prepared to give alternatives. They exist to make your day as perfect as you’ve imagined!
Working with both
The choice is always yours. You will more than likely work with an on-site coordinator when planning your wedding, but the choice to hire a wedding planner is up to you. There are several benefits to hiring a wedding planner, and if you’re going to be inviting over 100 guests it may be worth the spend. It’s very possible to plan a wedding yourself, but you should know what you’re signing up for beforehand.
