The job of the wedding planner is to coordinate all of the details involved in the process. This includes ordering flowers, negotiating contracts with a photographer and videographer, arranging for musicians and properly booking all wedding vendors. They may advise on color selections, ceremony and reception locations and menu choices. Wedding planners should maintain professional contacts among a variety of wedding service providers, including catering companies, reception halls, florists, DJs and more
A wedding planner is above all a calm and organized professional. In the busy and sometimes frantic process of planning a wedding, this person is an outside eye who can provide helpful perspective in any situation. The wedding planner is also the master problem-solver. When it comes to the big day, this person is in charge of making sure that the bride, groom, wedding party, parents, officials and vendors are all in the right place at the right time. Any unexpected problems should be quickly and quietly resolved.
