When hiring a wedding planner, you can expect them to provide a range of services and support to help you plan and execute your wedding smoothly. Here are some common things you can expect from a wedding planner:

  1. Initial Consultation: A wedding planner will meet with you to understand your vision, preferences, and budget. They will discuss your ideas, expectations, and the level of involvement you desire.

  5. Timeline and Scheduling: They will provide a detailed timeline for your wedding day, including the sequence of events, vendor arrivals, and setup. They will work with each of your vendors to ensure that everything runs smoothly and on schedule.

  6. Day-of Coordination: On your wedding day, a planner will oversee all the logistics, ensuring that vendors arrive on time, managing setup and breakdown, and addressing any last-minute issues. They will handle the coordination so you and your family can enjoy your day making memories stress-free.

  7. Problem Solving: Wedding planners are experienced in troubleshooting and resolving issues that may arise during the planning process or on the wedding day.

  8. Etiquette and Advice: Providing guidance on wedding etiquette, traditions, and trends is another skill planners bring to your wedding. They can offer advice on various aspects, such as invitation wording, ceremony structure, and reception flow.
