There is a TON that needs to be done before your big day (take a deep breath, it’s a lot!) When working with both a designer and a coordinator, you’re able to get the best of both worlds to make sure everything is taken care of.

A Designer and a Coordinator are two very different jobs that require two very different people, a right-brained aesthetic visionary, and a left-brained organizational mastermind. Together they can provide you with a full-scale wedding planning service.

We teamed up with Veritas Event Design to put together the REAL Wedding To-Do List. From tipping vendors and alphabetizing place cards to choosing a color palette and finding a photographer, we break down every single task into an easy to read list.


Now, all that awaits is an expertly crafted. stunning and stress-free wedding to enjoy!


But what’s the difference between all the different services? What will you need to handle if you do not have someone assigned to each specific task? We’ve broken down the entire list, and just like the separation of left-brain/right-brain tasks, we’ve laid out a side-by-side comparison looking at both the coordination logistics and the event design.
