Some couples have the misconceived notion that a wedding planner will cost them a fortune. In actuality, a wedding planner can save you money in the long run.

One of the first orders of business with wedding planning is devising the budget, which includes the overall total spend, and then having this broken down for décor, venue hire, catering, bar, photographers, and all of the other details.

You will know early how much it will cost you to add another seat to a table for dinner and plan accordingly. Additionally, wedding planners often get preferential rates from vendors that they can pass along to you.
