Q. We're looking at options for on-the-day coordination and we're a little confused - what's the difference between a toastmaster and an event coordinator?

A. Sonal Dave says: Sonal says: Your event coordinator will have met with you to discuss your requirements and on the day will be focussing on the set up of the actual event, working with all the suppliers. They will also ensure that things are set up as they should be and are ready on time. This will all be done discreetly behind the scenes.

A toastmaster will work with you and your suppliers to ensure all is ready as requested on time and they'll also focus on you and your guests, ensuring that everyone is at ease and knows where to go. They'll be available to direct and assist with any issues. Wearing the official toastmaster uniform means that the toastmaster can walk around, check things are where they should be as well as make the announcements for entrances, entertainment, speeches, food and all the other formal and informal announcements. A toastmaster is your visual spokesperson and will lend structure and gravitas, using their skills and personality to ensure that the couple and their guests are at ease.
