How You Can Be Your Own Wedding Planner

Posted in: , , ,

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for wedding planners around a decade ago was $44,260, but with the passage of time, some brides fork over $120,000 for help sorting out the little and big details that must be attended to when planning an affair. Did that figure grab your attention? It should.

Follow the suggestions below to make the day perfect, and do add your own ideas. Wait until you see how empowered you feel when you realize that no outside wedding planner can possibly have pulled off a wedding as magical as the one you planned.

That’s a lot of money. Some comes from commissions from florists, bands, caterers, and vendors who are happy to give a wedding planner a cut for using their services. Eliminate a planner, and every cent you’ve budgeted goes to the wedding itself.

Next, book visits to those on your short list.
