Many couples are unsure about how a wedding planner can help. It is often thought that a wedding planner is only for the rich and celebrities. The answer to this is no you don’t have to be rich or a celebrity to work with a wedding planner. Couples are now choosing to engage a wedding planner to help plan their weddings, this could be to plan the whole day, specific elements of the day or they want an On The Day Planner, particularly if you are at a dry hire venue or a marquee.
