Wedding planners are professionals who handle the planning and details of a wedding. The size of the wedding usually dictates how much planning needs to be done and what kind of experience the planner needs to have.

Planners can orchestrate every detail, from invitations to cleanup, or they can simply organize and carry out one part of the arrangements on the day of the wedding.
