I think it is okay if she is planning on being at your wedding the entire time, per the terms of your contract. Did the contract say she and her assistant would be there? Then I would probably have a problem with it. I would want specific assurances that she would be at my wedding the entire day, per the terms of the contract.

Not sure what she is supposed to do for you that day, but if she is setting up decor or something, I would also want to know who she is hiring/bringing to help her accomplish these tasks. I would not be okay with her leaving at all. That is not what you hired her for and not why you contracted with her. 

I would just call her and ask. Maybe her intent was to send the assistant to your cousin’s wedding and she routinely hires other people to assist in set up of decor. Then I wouldn’t really see a problem with it as long as those people are reliable and she can guarantee that everything will go according to plan.

Could also be that she’s helping plan your cousin’s wedding but not doing day of co-ordination for her?

Check your contract and ask your planner to clarify any grey areas 🙂

I know of several wedding planners who double-book and have assistants or associates working the other weddings.  I would clarify with your coordinator that she will be present at your wedding for the entire duration, and do so in writing.
