Wedding Planner, Wedding Designer, Wedding Coordinator...What's the Difference?

Wedding Planner, Wedding Designer, Wedding Coordinator...What's The Difference?  Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito (right) and two of her coordinators, Daniela Salvador and Kaitlin Collini before a wedding at Ghostbar.

Head over to any social media site and you'll find 101 different titles for people in the wedding industry.  Some people refer to themselves as Wedding Planners.  Others use the term Coordinators.  Still others like to consider themselves Wedding Designers, and some create their own fancy titles to set themselves apart from the crowd.  

So....What's the difference?  Who should you hire, and why?  What are the services and skill set that each professional possesses, and is there a "one size fits all" title that you should look for to give you everything you need?

Introducing Keshimar - Natural Stone Art for Newlyweds

Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito introduces Keshimar Natural Stone art products. 

Just last week I received the coolest - literally, cool! - gift in the mail; the petal wine and champagne chiller from Keshimar.  Originating in Italy, Keshimar is a line that uses natural marble and precious stones to hand craft unique pieces that you can use and love in your home.  As beautiful as they are useful, each item stands alone as a piece of unique art when not in use; they are the types of pieces you won't hide in a cabinet.

Please allow me to introduce Lisa Anderson and Scott Anderson; a couple so in sync they shared a last name even before meeting!

To hear Scott talk about the day he met Lisa makes you believe in fairytales:

"I literally experienced love at first site," says Scott.  "It was that life changing moment that I spent my life thinking I missed by just a second.  I even thought that maybe it just wasn't meant for me, and then all of a sudden, there she was..."

Vintage Vegas Wedding at The Westgate | Brian and Chris

The Vintage Vegas Wedding of Brian Sauls and Chris Mancini.

"Hi there. My partner and I planning a wedding in Las Vegas for jan 23 2016. We already have chosen our venue - the Verona suite at Westgate but need help with everything else. We are very low key but want an elegant, tacky, shabby chic experience for about 100-150 ppl. Need to find someone asap. Thanks. Chris"

I called them immediately, and the first thing out of Chris' mouth was , "Oh, hey, I was just going to send you another email....I forgot to mention, we want strippers, too."
