The cost to hire a wedding planner varies greatly – it all depends on the level of services that you and your groom will require.
For a few hundred dollars, for instance, you can hire a bridal consultant who will take care of a very specific number of wedding-related tasks.
For several thousand dollars, a wedding planner can help you with every single wedding planning detail.
There are also day-of coordinators, which are less expensive than either of the two options outlined above. A day-of coordinator is typically on hand only at the wedding ceremony and reception, to communicate with vendors, troubleshoot and assist with any outstanding issues.
Only you and your fiancé can determine your exact needs in a wedding planner. If you are both leading demanding schedules revolving around your careers, or are otherwise not able to plan your wedding, a bridal consultant may well be worth the extra expense.
And if you think you can’t afford this service but truly feel that you will benefit from a professional planner, take a closer look at your wedding budget. Perhaps you can remove certain items and replace them with a wedding planner?
