more and more venues are having on-site/venue coordinators, but it is important to understand the distinction between them and an independent wedding coordinator. you may even have wondered if there actually is a difference in what they do. well, there is!
on-site coordinators are the link between the couple and the employees of the chosen venue. their role will often include a tour of the venue, going over menus, and arranging catering tastings, as well as passing information back and forth between the couple and the caterers and other staff. they serve the important purpose of fulfilling the needs and requirements of the venue. it is important to understand that on-site coordinators are not responsible for helping you plan the nitty gritty details and it is not unusual for them to be absent on your wedding day.
at wildflower weddings we are what you would consider Independent Wedding Coordinators or Wedding Planners. as independent wedding coordinators we assist you all the way from the initial planning stage to the time of the reception close down, and we will support you with every single great and small detail of your wedding. we will help you with everything from planning how to allocate your wedding budget, to choosing your flowers and decor. we will manage your entire wedding day so that you don’t have to worry about a thing, and are able to relax and enjoy this momentous day in your life. you are our #1 priority, and our role is to help you every single step of the way!
you may be wondering if it is alright to have both an on-site coordinator and an independent coordinator. please rest assured that it is 100% alright, and it can actually be quite enjoyable for us to work as a team. we understand and appreciate the fact that nobody will have more knowledge about your venue than them. while they focus on the staff, catering, and layout of the room, we focus on the making sure every single aspect of the wedding comes together. if your venue has an on-site coordinator, we look forward to collaborating with them!
