What Does a Wedding Planner Do?
You guys. Laine and Bre are honestly two of my very favorite wedding vendors, and favorite wedding planners for sure. And maybe that's weird, as a wedding planner myself, to have two of my biggest competitors on the podcast and to spout about how amazing they are, but I can guarantee you that even Kate Spade wears other brands and gushes about how much she loves them.
The important thing is that you listen to this episode (perhaps you hire one of us - or all three of us lol) and you have a better wedding because of it. One that is better planned, better prepared and all around better.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU GUYS AND THE COORDINATOR MY VENUE PROVIDES?
A lot. Besides our top priorities, also our availability. Your venue coordinator will not be meeting you at the hotel, setting up your detail shots, or placing your escort cards. Amongst other things. HOWEVER, some venue coordinators, AHEM David at Machine Shop and Tracy at Nicollet Island Pavilion, are incredible. They go above and beyond, they cue your ceremony, they make your wedding day slick and they work perfectly as a dynamic duo with your wedding planner. Or at least that's my opinion.
CAN'T MY MOM OR MY SISTER DO THIS?
Short answer: f no. Long answer: listen to the episode.
WHAT DO REAL BRIDES AND REAL GROOMS THINK ABOUT HIRING A PLANNER AFTER THE FACT?
They gush. They are so so so appreciative to have had someone to do the things, to be the person and to control all of it all. Click here to read what my clients have to say about hiring a day of coordinator. Then continue down the rabbit hole and check out their weddings.
P.S. Funny, all three of us have blogs about why you NEED a DOC. Trust us, see the value, find yourself some help.
