A wedding planner is a good option for a busy bride and groom, or for a couple that has a generous budget but is uncertain as to exactly what they want.
Most couples underestimate the time it takes to plan a wedding, the practicalities involved and the vast number of planning options available. A wedding planner can simply advise or be there to project manage and coordinate the day.
The couple should think carefully about what service they require. There are one off introductory services or planners who charge an hourly fee. A range of packages is available for those who want to organise elements of the wedding day but can't do it all. Moreover, there are those who offer a full co-ordination and planning service.
It is quite likely that the bride, groom and other close family members will become good friends with the wedding planner and enjoy sharing the euphoria of the wedding.
