Hiring your wedding planner is one of the most critical decisions when thinking about your special day. Your wedding planner needs to be a person you feel comfortable talking to, listens and internalizes your concerns, and understands your vision.

They are problem solvers and are meant to take the stress away so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourself and spending time with your guests who have traveled to celebrate with you. A wedding planner will also ensure that no detail goes amiss and may be able to save you money by keeping to a budget.
