Hiring a Wedding Planner
Hiring a wedding planner may just be the best decision you make. They not only provide ideas and recommendations but can alleviate a lot of wedding day stress. Before hiring someone, make sure to interview them thoroughly. You’ll want to find out how many weddings they’ve done and check references (previous clients and vendors). Second, discuss your wedding planner’s payment structure. Typically they charge either a percentage of the total budget (15-20%) or a flat fee. I recommend going with a percentage of the budget, sometimes flat fees only cover a certain amount of time dedicated to your wedding details.
