Congratulations on your upcoming wedding day!

Wedding Planners & Designers - FAQ

Wedding Coordinator vs. Planner vs. Designer: What's the Difference?

Planning a wedding comes with a whole new set of vocabulary. You may have heard of a wedding consultant, a wedding designer, a wedding planner, and a wedding coordinator; however, what is the difference between wedding planners and wedding event designers? 

Since every professional works differently, a wedding planner may solely focus on logistics, budgets, vendors, and organizing the flow of the event or they may also be a wedding designer who designs what the event is going to look and feel like. Some professionals are only a wedding planner – focusing on the logistics of the planning process – and some are only event designers – focusing on the design and décor.

Depending on your goals for the wedding weekend, you can work with separate wedding planners and event designers who will work together to make your event and event design a success, or you can find a full-service wedding design firm to help you plan the logistics and design of your wedding day.

Who are the top wedding planners?

The Inside Weddings Editors Circle showcases some of the top planners in the wedding industry, as well as rising stars in the wedding-design world. Whether you're looking for a full-service event and wedding-planning firm who will orchestrate every detail or a creative company that offers day-of event planning services, you'll find someone with the approach that best fits your personal needs, destination, aesthetic, and celebration.

How much does a wedding designer cost?

Whether you have a small or large budget for your wedding, hiring a wedding planner will help you minimize stress and create a beautiful day for you and your guests to enjoy. Planners have various types of clients and events that they work with each year, and many full-service planning teams and coordinators work with each client to create a specialized wedding-planning package that fits their style, budget, and vision for the event from start to finish. If a planner doesn't have their pricing on the website, reach out with your general wedding budget so they can determine if it's the right fit!

How much is a luxury wedding planner?

Luxury wedding planners can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, so it's important to find the right planning and design firm for you. Every wedding, every client, and every company is different, so it's key to find the professional who will provide the planning experience you're looking for. Many offer custom décor options, exceptional floral creations, production services, and of course, planning, design, and organizational details throughout the process.

Does hiring a wedding planner save money?

All of the brides featured in Inside Weddings have shared that hiring a wedding planner was one of the best decisions they ever made and well worth the investment. Your planning team has vendor connections as well as the knowledge to ensure you stay in your desired budget. They also have special relationships with a number of vendor options, so you may end up with a professional who is less expensive and just as talented as a vendor you found on social media. Listen to their expertise and take their ideas to heart – it's their mission to help you, your future spouse, your friends, and your family have the best day ever with as little stress as possible.
