Who's job IS it? Getting to know your Wedding Vendors and their roles.

There are a lot of people that will be an essential part of your big day to make your dream become a reality. To name a few, there is a Catering Sales Manager, Banquet Captain, Wedding Designer, and Wedding Coordinator. What role does each person play? Here is a brief description of their specialties and how they’re an important contribution to your special day.

Catering Sales Manager
The title of Catering Sales Manager may differ for each venue. Most commonly, their primary role is to assist you with securing the venue, along with the floor plan, food, and beverages should you decide to order from the venue. Sometimes the Catering Sales Manager will be confused as a Wedding Coordinator. Please keep in mind that the Catering Sales Manager specializes in the venue, available amenities, and their menu options. Unlike a Wedding Coordinator, they won’t be able to assist you with reminding your bridal party of all pertinent call times and “don’t forgets” on the wedding day.

Banquet Captain
Now let’s introduce the Banquet Captain! Their role is to execute what was agreed upon in your Catering Contract/BEO (Banquet Event Order). They are responsible for overseeing the execution of all details arranged with the Catering Sale Manager/banquet operations. Therefore, if you have any concerns about the venue on your big day, it should be communicated with your Banquet Captain.  After spending the amount of time, whether it’s days, weeks, or months, communicating with your Catering Sales Manager about your selections, pricing, and details, there is a high possibility that your Catering Sales Manager will be present on your wedding day for a limited amount of time (if at all). Rest assured; this is when your Banquet Captain steps in! The Catering Sales Manager and the Banquet Captain work closely together in communicating the specifications for your big day. Your BEO (Banquet Event Order/Private Party Agreement/Wedding Detail Report) is one of their most essential tools of communication, which is why it is so important to make sure it’s accurate and delivered to your Catering Sales Manager by the deadline.  NOTE:  If you hire A Perfect Day, we will work VERY closely with your Catering Manager AND Banquet Captain on your behalf.

Wedding Designer
Behind door number three, we have your Wedding Designer! Your Wedding Designer specializes in collaborating every element in a way that will bring each couple’s wedding ideas to life; creating the perfect ambiance for your special day. They have skills in décor, lighting, layout, texture, and color design. From table linens, napkins, chair types and shapes, flowers, walls, to spotlights that pulsate to the music, your Wedding Designer will be able to provide insight and design to keep your wedding aesthetically constant with your invitations and thank you notes.

Wedding Coordinator (AKA: Wedding Planner)                                                                            Finally, we are pleased to present… your Wedding Coordinator! This is the person that gathers all your details together (from Catering Manager, Banquet Captain, Designer, Photographer, etc.), organizes, and manages all aspects of the wedding to ensure that things run smoothly on your big day. Essentially, their role is to alleviate the stress from the Bride & Groom so the couple can enjoy their wedding! From having a copy of your speech handy, making sure you have the lucky envelope (li-cee) ready for the Chinese Lion Dance performers, to locating your photographer, your Wedding Coordinator will know each person’s role and make sure each of them plays their part so you won’t have to run around in your extravagant wedding heels. Above all, their main concern is the happiness of the Bride & Groom!

Your Wedding Coordinator is also a great resource for everything wedding related! Coordinators may offer excellent consulting services to point you in the right direction, such as advice on which photographer fits your budget. However, it is entirely up to the couple to decide how involved or not involved they want the coordinator to be in the planning process. This is how your coordinator determines a price quote for their services. The price may vary, depending on the coordinator and the services they provide.
