As you may ask, one of the questions wedding couples asked me was about the differences between each wedding service. You heard all these words: wedding planner, organizer, coordinator, and also wedding stylist. Many people may call all of us as a whole with the term “wedding organizer”. But in reality, our roles are very different.
So here I am, introducing you to all these terms and different roles in the wonder of the wedding industry. This post will help you decide the most suitable service for your needs, lifestyles, and wedding vision.
Wedding Day Coordinator
Usually, the duty of the wedding-day coordinator or venue-coordinator plays the most important part on your wedding day. They ensure that every sequence starts and ends on time per the schedule that you agree with them. And coordinate with other wedding services, which may include wedding planner or wedding organizer.
You may have a detailed brief with them from around one month up to one week before the wedding day, depends on your need and their requirements. This is the best option for couples who love to plan everything by themselves to the smallest details. The wedding day coordinator will take over from where you finish and make it happen on your special day.
When we talk about wedding organizer, we think of them as a team. They provide services on decorating and preparing the wedding venues. And they may offer you with other wedding-related services too, such as photographers, floral designers, coordinators, emcees, and many more. It’s important that you check with them what the wedding services they provide are. Often, they operate as a one-stop service. For this reason, it’s one of the most popular choices in Thailand.
However, many of them offer their services as cookie-cutter packages with specific starting prices. You may not need some of the services they provide, but still have to pay for them anyway. If you want something out of their offers, this will cost extra money. So recheck their offers before you decide.
Wedding Stylist / Wedding Decoration
Their strengths are creativity and designs. This may be only a one-person job that we call a “wedding stylist”. Their job focuses on designing your wedding concepts, colors, and other designs. And may coordinate with relevant services, such as florists or prop rentals.
As a team, they offer their services with the term “wedding decoration”. They will produce and design everything you need to decorate your space from installations to flowers to other small decorative items. Everything that you need, they design for your wedding
Now this is the time we talk about my role and my services. As a wedding planner, I’m responsible in researching and proposing to you with different options from the wedding vendors who fit your styles and your price point. This includes, but not limited to, photographers, floral designers, venues, decorations. I’ll be the contact person who communicates your needs, manages your budget, and foresees the holistic designs. You will receive the services that are true to your styles within your investment.
I will work with wedding organizer, or wedding decoration team, to design and decorate the wedding venue. Though, you don’t have to worry about the communication with these teams. I will still be in charge of all the briefings.
Wedding Planner vs Organizer
For couples who would like to plan every detail by themselves and can spare time to research and discuss preferred services with different wedding vendors, it’s better to work with only the wedding day coordinator or wedding organizer team.
But if you want someone else to take care of everything for you, manage your investment, and ensure the smooth operation on your wedding day, hiring a wedding planner will help you save enormous time and energy to enjoy this memorable celebration with your loved ones without stress!

My services focus on planning personalized, non-religious weddings with unique wedding timeline. If you want something different, new, or fun, this is where you stop looking! I can help you modify traditional wedding ceremony or make a modern twist to your special day, allowing you to cancel all those predictable sequences.
Humanist weddings can give you a memorable wedding experience that is true to your style and impressive for your guests. Your love story will play a big part in inspiring the big day. If you feel that this is what you seek, I’ll be very happy to work with you!
