I got an email the other day from a couple that said they didn't really need a full service planner and they didn't think they could afford it but were wondering what options I had to offer them.
Glad you asked!
Wedding planners can offer suggestions for reputable wedding professionals; people or businesses that fit your style and budget and they even know some of the out of ordinary locations. A planner can work on your budget, create a timeline and suggest ways to get you started. 3-4 hours of planning in the beginning can get you on the right track and save you valuable time and potentially money.
Say you already have your dream venue in mind and you are certain you can decide on the other aspects of your wedding but you aren't sure how to pull the event together. IE: the guest list seating, the day of timeline and last minute logistics- consider a day of planner!
