Let’s get one thing straight; wedding planning isn’t like the films, where pristine women are running around in headsets ordering other people to keep the swans in check. Wedding planners are just regular people who, simply put, take the stress away from the couple getting married.
Basically, all the non-glamorous and boring parts are taken care of, while you can still be the driving force behind the decisions and get to do all the fun parts. A wedding planner can help guide you through the process with advice and experience.
It’s a myth that wedding planners charge thousands of pounds and you just turn up on the day to get married. The whole wedding is about you, so it’s only natural that you do the choosing and decision making to ensure it’s personal to you. A wedding planner provides you with options, negotiates on your behalf (and with good contacts, this is helpful).
When planning your wedding, many family and friends find it easy to get wrapped up in your excitement and in passing offer to help. This can give you a false idea of how many people will be there to help you set-up and clear away (for the more DIY weddings). It’s surprising how busy people can become when the work to do is not very fun.
Do not end up stressed & tired on your big day!
So, in short, a wedding planner can do as much or as little as you are looking for. But most of all, keep you sane.
