Planning a wedding is hard work, and it can be difficult to tackle the large number of tasks on your checklist yourself—especially if you’re already slammed with work, school, family or just life in general. That’s why hiring a wedding planner may be one of the best decisions you’ll make during the planning process. They’ll handle much of the work for you so you can actually enjoy your engagement. If you’re still on the fence about hiring a pro to help you put together your big day, it’s important to understand a wedding planner’s responsibilities to help decide if booking one is right for you.
