First of all you will need to understand the difference between a wedding co-ordinator, a wedding planner and a wedding stylist - these terms can sometimes be used interchangeably but that's not essentially correct.
So, what is a wedding co-ordinator?
A wedding co-ordinator quite literally co-ordinates the wedding which you have planned. They will meet with you anywhere between 4-12 weeks before your wedding to go through the wedding contracts, the logistics and will liaise with your suppliers to organise a detailed schedule for the day and will implement it perfectly.
Okay that's great, what is a wedding stylist?
A wedding stylist's role is purely aesthetic and to create your Pinterest board into a reality wedding day! They will work on floor plans, design positions for flowers, tables and chairs, and will pull everything together for a cohesive wedding style for your day.
What does a wedding planner do then?
Wedding planners are there with you throughout the entire wedding planning journey, or from when you first book their services. They help you manage your budget, recommend wedding suppliers who they have worked with and know will be able to create your wedding vision. A wedding planner will read through your contracts for you and raise any concerns, attend supplier and venue meetings, and will oversee everything on the day - some wedding planners can also do styling for you! Basically a wedding planner's role is to be your wedding planning bestie to take away any of the stresses that can come along with the territory.
