It's interesting to hear some of the requests that are posted from time to time on social media pages which are directed toward looking for specific services. Did you know that coordinators and designers and event managers are all different titles and honestly, all offer different services? Occasionally, you'll find someone or a business that offers ALL of the different services, but most of the time, if you're looking for a Day Of Coordinator, then you're specifically looking for one individual who just coordinates with the vendors and the activities of the day.
For example: An Event Coordinator oversees the setup of the day based on the timeline which either has been prepared by the Event Coordinator or has been provided by the bride TO the coordinator and she follows the timeline and oversees making sure everyone is in the right place at the right time.
An Event Designer/Decorator creates mockups or sketches for the event design, creates the vision, hires the specific vendors who can bring the vision to life (or does it herself with a team) and the vision is aligned with the purpose and branding of the client.
An Event Manager manages all aspects of putting together the event. This could include design or just taking the vision from the designer, but definitely books all or assists the bride with booking the vendors, sets schedules, creates the logistical plans for the event, controls the budget, and oversees any vendors.
An Event Producer does all of these things - design, budgeting, set up, decor, day of, month of, sees things through from beginning to end, and holds the client's hand.
An Event Technician - the warm live bodies on the grounds the day of the event - they set up furniture, if necessary, decor, lighting, security, set tables, flip spaces, transfer items from one location to another...these guys are the superheroes....they're the muscle.
All of these people and these titles and responsibilities make the event come together.
Did you know if you hire K 'n K Events and Design and book the All Inclusive Package, you get ALL OF THE ABOVE?
And can we give you one piece of advice? You want to be sure that the person you put in charge of your event is professional and experienced. You want to be sure that the person in charge knows what to do when something goes wrong and can handle it without you ever knowing that it happened in the first place!
