The title of this episode is Wedding Director. Definitions Part 1. Wedding & Event Podcast Episode 43.
Question: What’s the difference between a Wedding Planner and a Wedding Designer?
Or a Wedding Director and Wedding Producer?
How about a Wedding Coordinator and Day of Wedding Coordinator?
I’ll admit, I have been providing music and entertainment for weddings throughout Southern California for over 25 years and up until a short time ago, I thought these terms were just different names for the same thing.
Through talking with Tobey Dodge I am finding out that these terms have their own definitions and are not interchangeable. I am learning what distinguishes one from the other and what each does.
For me, this sheds some light as to why some events went really well and why some events didn’t go as well as they could have.
I think a couple new to planning their wedding would benefit from knowing these terms and how they relate to the services they will be hiring.
I also think by knowing these definitions event professionals will be better able to serve their clients.
In this episode, Tobey defines what a Wedding Director is.
Wedding Director – The wedding director is a representative of the religious organization who gives guidance to the couple regarding the policies and customs of that organization. The activities of a wedding director traditionally have to do with ceremony preparation for the couple and facilitator of the ceremony rehearsal.
And now please enjoy, Wedding Terms. Part 1. Wedding Director. Wedding & Event Podcast Episode 43.
