Wedding coordinator vs wedding planner
The Scottish Rite Cathedral offers an on-staff event coordinator. It’s possible that you won’t be able to tell the difference between an event coordinator and a planner. You might believe that an event organizer can take care of all of your wedding preparation needs. We have a lot of experience in the wedding industry for decades and can assure you that this is not the case. It can be perplexing, but here’s how it works.
The bride and groom do not employ an event coordinator. Instead, he works for the venue, and he is in charge of ensuring that the event runs smoothly for the management. As a result, he will not pay attention to your requirements.
We’ve come to solve this issue. Weddings of Pittsburgh’s team will work for you and will always put your needs first. We can help you with every step of the wedding planning process, and we’ll be there to make your wedding ceremony memorable.
