What's the Difference | In House Coordinators VS Us / by Jenny Chang

Planning your wedding can be a very stressful time when you are focused on creating a new life with your special someone. There are a lot of details and unexpected costs that go into a wedding that can surprise anyone who doesn’t know their way around planning an event of such magnitude.

There are a lot of options when planning your wedding. Well, mainly it is just two choices; the first being in-house coordinators; and the second, would be an outside event coordinators such as the coordinators at Rock N’ Events

In-house coordinators’ main focus are geared towards the functionality and logistics of venue and catering. They provide a destination for you to enjoy your event. Their sole focus is to focus on the venue as opposed to all the personal touches that you may want to have on your wedding day!

What exactly are the roles of an in-house event coordinator?

  • Very limited interaction between the coordinator and the couple
  • Catering and labor budget breakdown – limited control or monitoring to keep the couple within budget
  • Only able to use a limited list of approved vendors – most of them are in-house
  • Quantity, not quality – In-house coordinators are focused on getting things put together quickly and less about creating a personal experience
  • Divided attention – they may be coordinating many events at once and won’t have as much time to make your event a priority
  • No design flexibility due to prepackaged events and limited resources to hire outside vendors
  • Bound by the rules of the benue
  • Generic feel
  • Day-of event focus – In-house coordinators are not involved in the entire process
