Time and time again we hear this lovely question, “Well, why do I need a planner when my venue has a coordinator?”.
The answer to this question has hundreds of layers. The most important takeaway for couples to understand from this piece is that your PLANNER’s sole interest is in YOU. Their client. The venue’s main concern is the VENUE. That is what they are paid to take care of (no shade to venue coordinator’s they’re great! But their venue is their baby, our clients are our family).
As planners, one of our goals is to educate our clients of the ins and outs of the event industry. At OneTouch we find it imperative to educate our clients why we each have different roles. It is of the most importance to understand we each have a cost associated with our services. And we each play an integral part in your event.
You wouldn’t ask your chef why they aren’t baking your cake right? Well, that’s how we feel about the venue coordinator vs. planner conversation. This blog we will break down the key differences so you can make an informed decision and hire a planner. ( ;
While both relationships are important to have, it is imperative to note why each has a different part to play. This is an educational breakdown of the many layers each vendor plays on event day. This blog focused on one facet being peeled back, but in order to understand the full scope of the event industry it is our duty to continue educating. Hope you enjoyed!
