What’s the Difference Between a Wedding Planner and a Venue Coordinator?

“Our venue offers a planner as part of their package, why would we need a private planner as well?” It’s pretty common for venues to offer this service (and there’s good reason for that too!) but don’t get confused between a venue planner or coordinator and a privately hired wedding planner.
