What is the difference?

What is the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding designer?


One of the most common misconceptions among brides and grooms is about the responsibilities and talents associated with a wedding planner and a wedding designer. While they both work towards the common goal of making your wedding day fabulous, the job responsibilities of each professional are actually very different.


A wedding planner is the expert when it comes to the management, logistics and planning of your wedding. A planner’s role includes budget tracking, contract negotiations, timelines, vendor referrals and the overall “how” of the wedding. Your wedding planner will ensure that your special day runs smoothly. She is as a trusted advisor on everything wedding related, a shoulder to lean on and the person who will give you peace of mind that all the details will be tended to. A wedding planner is the ultimate task master making sure timelines are met, vendors are called. She is your best advocate with nobody’s interest in their mind but your own. The wedding planner is working really hard to ensure the vision you have in mind for your dream wedding comes to life.


Wedding Wish, a wedding designer, on the other hand, shines when designing the aesthetics of your wedding. This is where the “wow” factor comes in.  We work with you to develop your vision and bring it to fruition. Conceptualization, styling, design – colours, décor, candle lighting are key elements handled by us in order to make your dream wedding come true. We have the ability to create things from scratch according to your wishes.
