Most wedding planners should help you develop a concept, including design, and then help you find the vendors in order to pull it off.

I did for reception #2.  Family friend.  My mom actually met with her and then they emailed me photos of some stuff.

I think it was ~$300.  She did set up and take down.  She did head table, centerpieces and chair covers with sashes.  There was… 50 or 55 people there.  I thought it was great because we really didn’t have to do anything, she did it all.  Plus, she has a huge collection of things to pick from, sources for cheap flowers, etc.  She even gathered all the flowers and handed them off to my mom after.  

I wouldn’t necessarily have gone with chair covers, they’re not really my thing.  However, they toned down the old-hotel-flowered-carpet colour of the chairs.  Plus, the chairs were a green colour and nothing else really matched that.  My Maid/Matron of Honor was wearing the same dress as the first wedding, which we kind of continued using as the main colour.

My wedding coordinator is not my decorator.  My florist also does wedding design, so she will be the one I rely on for the “vision.”  However, the wedding coordinator, florist and event coordinator (hotel’s person) all work very closely.

@jackndiane:  Yes.  She will be setting up the chuppah (and decorating it), providing and setting up the decor pieces (besides flowers), etc.
