Laying the Foundation
Should You Hire A Wedding Planner?
A talented, capable and organized wedding planner can mean a lot less stress for you and your families.
Early in your engagement, one of the major decisions you'll have to make is whether or not to use the services of a wedding consultant or party planner. The decision depends on several factors:
- The scale of your wedding
- How much time you have to devote to the design and planning process
- How capable you feel of managing the many small details involved
- Your budget
Our two cents? A talented, capable and organized wedding planner can mean a lot less stress for you and your families.
If your budget won't allow you to enlist the services of a professional, your caterer or banquet director may be able to assume this responsibility. Or you might want to plan the wedding yourselves and hire a consultant for a few days before your wedding and for the wedding day itself to make sure things run smoothly and according to plan.
Another possibility is to ask a friend or family member with good organizational skills to take care of organizing all the details so you can relax on your wedding day.
