An important question to ask yourself to begin planning your wedding is DzDo you plan everything yourself or hire someone to do the dirty work?
Do Your Day Yourself:
A wedding planner can take a big chunk out of your budget. Planning your day yourself can save you anywhere from 5 to 10 thousand dollars, and you also get to put more of your personal touches into your day.
Letting Someone Else Do The Dirty Work:
Few brides have time to sit down and plan out a seating chart that will please all of their guests. Also, wedding planners have connections in the city and are more likely to get a better deal negotiated.
Remember to check if your ceremony or reception venue comes with a day-of coordinator. Many venues do come with someone to help you when your wedding day arrives.
