There are a LOT of details to think through before and on a wedding day! Not to mention the decisions involved in those details and the corresponding with vendors that’s required.

What Does a Wedding Planner Actually Do?

Wedding planners help with everything from planning your color palette to directing the processional during the ceremony.

The list really is extensive on what they can do to help make your day be seamless and stress-free! Check out this post and this post for more in depth lists on what a wedding planner can offer.

Is It Worth the Investment?

If your budget allows for a planner at all, then YES! (If a planner doesn’t fit into your budget, then you could look into a wedding coordinator).

A wedding can add up and get expensive, so it can be tempting to cut corners where you can; but in the long run it can save you both time and money to have someone experienced helping plan and keep the planning according to your budget.
