How do you describe a wedding planner? They are one part best friend, one part therapist, two parts logistical Jedi, and a dash of design genius. A wedding planner should be on every newly engaged couple’s list of priorities, regardless of how involved you want to be in creating the big day.

Many planners offer bespoke services that can be chosen based on your needs. Consider getting consultation services to start your planning on the right food and see how best you work together.
