Q: Does The Winfield Inn offer wedding/event coordination services?
A: The Winfield Inn does not offer any coordination services for weddings or events and we welcome you to hire outside coordinators. However, The Winfield Inn does provide an Onsite Event Manager at every event who will coordinate the set-up of all tables, linens, chairs, and any other rentals contracted through the Winfield Inn, as well as remain on-site throughout the event to ensure seamless service for you and your guests.
Q: What's the difference between an event manager vs hiring an event coordinator?
A: An event manger is assigned to every event. They will coordinate the set-up of all tables, linens, chairs, and any other rentals that are contracted through The Winfield Inn. The event manager will remain onsite through dinner service to ensure seamless service for you and your guests. An event coordinator can be hired as an additional service. They participate in the early stages of planning, all the way until the last guest leaves. Click here for more details on our event coordination package. >>
