Response: A coordinator is there to help ease the stress out of the stressful event of planning a wedding. You should be sat down with.. a budget for each individual item flowers, hall, photographs, favors should be drawn up and figured out.
Your coordinator is to take that information as well as get a feel for your style and research all the possible choices you have.. You should be given more than one choice in any given area.. And be confident in her/ his services at finding you the most reasonalble prices..
Basically she does the phone calling and price comparison shopping and hands you over the choices.. You then sit back and agree to what you settle on and she then closes out the area you settle on..
Coordinators are helpful when you are too busy to do all this research yourself.. So its best to use one who comes highly recommended or has many weddings under her belt.. Actually I would think anyone whos planned a wedding on thier own can be titled a coordinator and be a helpful source.. So call around to some of your friend who have already been married and maybe you can get results that way as well!
Good Luck And God Bless!
