What is the difference between planning a wedding and coordinating a wedding?
Planning involves the preparation up to the day of the wedding. This course is designed to give you the tools to plan every component of your day. Coordination is what happens on the day of your wedding. It is important to have someone behind the scenes to make sure everything is running smoothly and is best left to a professional wedding coordinator. After all, you and your fiancé deserve to enjoy your day without stress!
Will this course teach me step by step how to plan my wedding?
You will learn everything you need to know about planning your wedding from beginning to end! For instance, you’ll learn how to budget and how to talk to your parents (or those who are graciously gifting you) about what your ideal wedding will cost. We also talk about how to set your guest list and select your venue. You will learn valuable tools to help create a vision for your wedding day that reflects you as a couple. We also discuss wedding invitation details and paper goods for your big day. As well as how to select your vendors and create the ultimate timeline so everyone is on the same page the day of your wedding!
Why can’t my aunt/mom/friend be my planner/coordinator?
You want your family and invited guests to enjoy themselves. While they might volunteer to do this for you, it could become an uncomfortable situation if you have expectations that she doesn’t fulfill. It’s best to trust a professional on your wedding day with the details you have so carefully prepared!
