Recently, I have received several requests from Brides, who are looking for someone to handle the wedding rehearsal and day of coordination. Over the years, I recognize that they are really looking for a wedding director, who can provide some day of coordination at a particular price. This is a well needed service of course for Brides, however it is important for Brides to understand the difference in what it means to hire a Wedding Coordinator (service typically called “Month of Coordination”) versus hiring a Wedding Director. This service per the Wedding Planner will vary in price. Each Planner will price this service the best way she/he determines makes since for their business. In general between the two offerings, the level of service can range from $500 and go up as high as $2,000+.
Here is a real conversation that gave me an opportunity to share the reason my fee is what I charge for “Month of Coordination.” I believe this will be helpful to future Brides out there.
Thank you touching base again! I believe the information below will give some guidance to best distinguish the difference between both types of service. Please see below. In general, here are few details that will give you an idea of why my fee is what I charge for “Month of Coordination.”
I hope that makes since. Feel free to share any additional questions. : )
A Wedding Coordinator – A person who is hired to handle the final logistics for the wedding day. That includes organizing the wedding rehearsal, creating an itinerary for the actual wedding day, and facilitating the flow of the day. A wedding day coordinator is tasked with the actual wedding day execution after the Client has completed all of the wedding planning details, hired all the vendors, and created and finalized the entire design.
Wedding Director – In general, a wedding director is the person who is tasked with only coordinating the wedding rehearsal and directing the ceremony on your wedding day.
Side Note: True story…a couple years ago, a young lady I know hired a wedding director and they had not communicated the details regarding the wedding day. The director left after the ceremony because that is all she was responsible for. Guess who stepped in to coordinate her reception last minute…LOL!
By the way, if you wondering what I charge for “Month of Coordination”… : ) I charge $1,500+. It’s a service that I have kept in my package offerings for those Brides who may need it from Events By Nishaka. It is the base service that I offer. The additional wedding collection I offer are “The Creative Experience, The Class Experience, and the Red Carpet Experience.” Visit my contact page “Let’s Plan” to inquire about your date and wedding services!
