There are so many couples that think there isn’t a difference between a wedding coordinator and a venue coordinator. However, this is wrong. A venue coordinator is not a wedding coordinator.
To put it briefly, a venue coordinator is there for the venue, while a wedding coordinator is there for the couple. A venue coordinator is helpful, but the difference between a wedding coordinator and a venue coordinator is huge.
Let’s chat about the things that a venue coordinator handles, so you can see the difference between the two types of coordinators.
Venue coordinators are there to supervise and manage the venue, regardless of the event. They aren’t there to deal with anything event-related unless it specifically involves the venue.

An event coordinator is there for the management of the event, regardless of the venue. They aren’t there just the day of (check out this blog about how there is not such thing as a “day of” coordinator). They are there for the entire process to guide you.

Many couples and event planning clients don’t understand the difference between the two. Therefore, when booking a venue with a venue coordinator, they think that it saves them from having to spend money on an event coordinator. This just isn’t true. Your venue coordinator won’t come up with solutions if your rental vendor is running 2 hours late, or if your veil rips. They aren’t there for you. When you hire a coordinator, they’re there just for you, with zero obligation to the venue.
