What Does a Wedding Coordinator Do?

Have you ever wondered what a wedding coordinator actually does? The main service we offer is day of wedding coordination, though Palm Springs wedding coordinators actually come in three different flavors: “day of”, “week of”, or “month of” coordinators. Our dedicated team of wedding coordinators can fulfill any of these roles. Note that while we welcome you to reach out to our coordinators at any time as you plan your wedding, we don’t generally start working our magic until 1-2 months before your wedding day.

As to what wedding coordinators do,  for week-of or month-of planning packages we assist you in pulling together an itinerary, confirming vendor commitments and double-checking the details, decisions, and services that you have already contracted for. We also work with the information you give us to formulate a master plan for the entire day so you can rest assured the details are in place and the event is being professionally managed. That leaves you free to enjoy your special day. And because these services are not as extensive as a coordination package that covers all the planning from beginning to end, our wedding coordination services are very budget friendly.

Duties of a Day of Wedding Coordinator

For day-of coordination services, the couple is responsible for preparing a timeline, confirming details and commitments with vendors, and all other related duties. As consultants, we will carry out our duties based upon your reservations and preparations. In these instances, where we have no previous interaction with vendors, we are only as good as the information that you give us. The more we know about your wedding day plans, the more helpful we can be.

You may be wondering what is the difference between a catering manager and a wedding coordinator. Wedding coordinators offer a different range of services than these other professionals. Specifically, we are working for you, not a hotel or other venue, and we are there to see that your wishes and requests are carried out as well as to aid in planning that is not related to your venue and refreshments. Make sure you know what the staff at your wedding venue will and won’t do. As your coordinators, we will work with the vendors at your ceremony and/or reception locations to take the pressure off of you and give you priceless peace of mind.

How much does a wedding coordinator cost? Like many day of wedding coordinators, our fee structures are based on both the level of service and number of hours that it will take to perfectly execute your wedding day plans. Typically, pricing ranges from $950.00 to $3,000+ for all of our wedding coordination packages. Every couple who works with us receives a customized package based on their needs and wants.

Whether you are planning a wedding that is big or small, casual or formal, the knowledge, professionalism, and help our wedding coordinators can give you is well worth the cost.
