First, a brief description of what a wedding planner is, and does.
A wedding planner, otherwise known as wedding coordinator or bridal consultant, assists brides in all aspects of planning their weddings. They provide advice and assistance with aquiring attire, invitations, decorations, music, food, and other aspects of the wedding. Many wedding planners own their own company and some even have a staff. Consultants working for bridal shops, catering facilities or department stores may be called bridal consultants, but brides should ask what exactly it is that these consultants will supply. Not all wedding planners are alike.
