A wedding planner is someone who helps couples in planning a wedding if they do not have time enough or if they need assistance in planning their wedding. A wedding planner will assist with either the entire wedding or just some particular part of the wedding. This can be either the selection of the venue or the planning of the catering services, decorations etc. a wedding planner has basically 3 main functions: the creation, the innovation, and the coordination of a wedding.
Planning a wedding, designing a wedding and managing a wedding are the main duties that a wedding planner has. They are the back bone of the entire wedding situation. The planner will initially have a consultation session with you, making note of all details necessary for the wedding. They discuss information like the kind of place they want to have the wedding at, the number of guests that are expected, the style of decorating the place, the budget involved etc. after gathering all this, they plan the wedding out for you, sometimes via group discussions and sometimes through their agencies.
Once the wedding planner submits the plan to the couple, the couple has to then work with the planner, setting things up, and eventually the wedding takes place. The wedding planner will be present on the wedding day as well, making sure that nothing goes wrong on the big day.
Wedding planner agencies are available almost everywhere. However, while choosing one, it is preferable to go with a well-known agency, as everything about the wedding would depend upon them. There are some wedding planners who don’t work out of an agency, but work as freelancers. These kinds of planners should be hired only if the have been recommended by someone, because they might not have the experience enough to handle such a big endeavour.
