wedding planner basics

So maybe you didn't think you needed (or can afford) a wedding planner when you first started in on the wedding planning process. But, take it from us, wedding coordinators are well worth the money. Beyond all the details, dates, and unexpected family drama that need to be handled, wedding planners are there to keep you feeling as stress-free as possible on the day of. But it's not just the day of the wedding that wedding planners are good for -- they're there to answer virtually any question that comes up (from whether to let your aunt bake the cake to finding a good seat assignment for your embarrassing cousin). Good wedding coordinators will also help you get a deal when booking the rest of your wedding vendors. We're talking discounts on everything from the rentals and food costs to your wedding dress, making it more than worth it. Even if you're not interested in hiring a professional wedding planner for the entire wedding planning process, most brides will recommend hiring day-of wedding coordinators to help execute the day. This person will manage any last-minute emergencies that come up on your wedding day (from corralling your family for photos after the ceremony to making sure your guests know where to go after the cocktail hour), giving you the freedom to relax and really enjoy yourselves.
