Should you hire a wedding consultant?

In addition to helping make your wedding dreams come true within your budget, and perhaps saving you from costly mistakes, a consultant will save you time and stress. With today's hectic lifestyles, many bridal couples and their families do not have the time for the detailed planning and work that a beautiful wedding requires. Below are some frequently asked questions regarding wedding consultants:

Won't a consultant want to run the whole show?
A professional bridal consultant will work with you to handle as much or as little of your wedding as you wish. After all, it is YOUR wedding. The consultant is there to help you and your family and make the day as perfect as possible.

What will a Wedding Consultant charge?
ABC discourages its consultants from charging a percentage of the cost of the wedding. Most ABC consultants charge an hourly rate or a fixed fee, or a combination of both. All these methods are acceptable, but you should clarify in writing how and when you will compensate your wedding coordinator for his or her services. A wedding consultant is part of your budget, not an extra expense. In fact, you often save money because a consultant suggests affordable alternatives that still enhance your wedding. The professional wedding consultant will work with you to produce your dream wedding, all within your budget.

Do I need a Wedding Consultant?
A consultant will be a distinct asset as you plan your wedding. Wouldn't it be nice to spend time with your fiance and your families, rather than worrying about all the details of your special day? A consultant will take care of those details, leaving you to have fun and enjoy this time. And on your wedding day, you shine as the star, while your consultant works behind the scenes to make your dreams come true!

Good to know about this information on whether or not to hire a wedding consultant. Recently, hired one for arranging my cousin’s wedding and he really did lovely arrangements at one of exotic event venues Chicago. Everyone appreciated them a lot!
