Although it seems a simple question, the answer to “what does a wedding planner do?” changes with each and every client a wedding planner works with.
Typically, a wedding planner is hired for either "full service", for a "day-of coordination" or to help on specific parts of the wedding. I willexplain to the client all services and costs included in each of the packages required.
Day of coordination involves taking care of all the logistical details of the wedding on the day of the wedding itself. Full service planning involves everything included in day of coordination plus a lot more, such as managing budget, vendors, venues, catering and all the details that go into planning the perfect wedding. A request of help on a specific part of the wedding planning can involve a very targeted consultation.
