Resort Wedding Coordinators

The Destination Wedding Workbook's John Bigley and Paris Permenter

Many resorts have staff members who handle all the in-house wedding arrangements, from paperwork to photography. These in-house coordinators work for the resort and are usually limited to wedding sites at the resort itself. Usually the services of the resort wedding coordinator are part of the wedding package itself, a savings over hiring an independent wedding coordinator.
