Wedding Planners and Coordinators: Why You Need Them


Wedding Planners and Coordinators: Why You Need Them


We have to say, we think planners and coordinators are the undercover wedding heroes for all the weddings here at Ma Maison.


That is why we require use of a coordinator or planner on your big day. And trust us when we say, you will be so happy you had the help during the lead up and on your big day!


First things first, you might be wondering: what is the difference between Wedding Planners and Wedding Coordinators? Here are the definitions according to


Wedding Planner:

Wedding planners are all about the logistics, from vendor referrals and contract negotiation to day-of execution of your vision. “Planners take the guesswork out of the process, making planning a wedding as seamless and smooth as possible,” says Renny Pedersen, owner and creative director of Bliss Weddings & Events. “A planner will keep track of your budget and handle the logistics. This is a skill that many can learn, but only the best planners have the years of experience and credentials that set them above the rest.” 


Wedding Coordinator:

Coordinators make sure everything you’ve done up until they take over is in good shape. “Hiring a coordinator to take over the month before your wedding gives them time to tweak any details and follow up on loose ends,” says event planner Andie Cuttiford. Everything is in order, nothing is forgotten, and you’re free to enjoy your wedding day.


Here are the biggest reasons (there are about 1209340279529732 reasons to hire one of these amazing humans) why you will be so happy you hired one:


1.Peace of Mind

Wedding planning can be so hard and so stressful! Letting someone take the burden off your shoulders is such a great feeling! Not to mention come wedding day, you do not want to be running around making sure everything looks right, is going to planned, or putting out fires! Planners and Coordinators will make sure things so smoothly and wonderfully on your big day!


2. All the Knowledge 

From helping you find a perfect venue to aiding you in staying within budget, these professionals know the industry and details and pricing that will make your day the Pinterest success you hope it to be! If you trust their judgement and capabilities, they will connect you with amazing vendors and bring your vision to life and then some!


3.They Know Pretty

Have you ever heard of a Pinterest fail? They are a very real thing. Seeing something pretty and making something pretty are two very different things. Not only do planners and coordinators have wonderful taste but they can execute your vision so well! Show them that gorgeous picture you love and they will work so hard to make your dreams come true!


See how planners are so wonderful? They make wedding dreams come true and they will make yours come true too!
