What do wedding planners do

  • Setting up a realistic wedding budget
  • Devising a wedding master plan that maps out all the little details, from ceremony music to favors
  • Showing you the best and most original locations in the area, considering your wedding size, budget, and vision
  • Finding the top florists, photographers, caterers, bands, DJs and other vendors in your price range
  • Cutting you choice deals: Consultants bring volume to favored vendors, so often the vendors will reciprocate by slashing prices or throwing in extras
  • Reading over all your vendor contracts to make sure everything is there, correct, and in accordance with your best interests and negotiations any amendments on your behalf
  • Creating a day-of (or weekend-of) timeline that tells everyone involved in the planning process — vendors, members of the wedding party, you, and your families — when to do what
  • Handling the invitations, from the wording and ordering to the addressing and mailing, as well as tracking RSVPs
  • Counseling you on proper etiquette as well as what’s hot on the wedding front
  • Managing the wedding day: supervising vendors, setup, and delivery; handling emergencies; and soothing nerves
  • Serving as your spokesperson, conveying your every whim and desire to vendors or family members when you just can’t deal with doing it yourself
  • Helping to plan and book your honeymoon (yep — most planners will handle your travel plans too!)
