If you are starting to plan your wedding, you know how stressful and intimidating the whole process can be. Luckily, there are plenty of tools that can be used in order to help you throughout the entire journey. The best way to get some help when it comes to getting everything done is hiring a wedding planner.
There are a couple different options that you can choose from when hiring someone to help you out with your planning process. Your first option is a wedding planner, which is probably the person you think of when you think of wedding help. A wedding planner will put in the most amount of hours, they will handle contracts and will attend all meetings with your vendors. If you have no idea what you are doing when it comes to wedding planning, this is definitely the person you want to help you out.
Secondly, you can hire a wedding coordinator. Though they sound like the same job, they actually are quite different! A wedding coordinator will put in less hours than a planner and will join in on your planning usually about a month before the big day. They are the number one person in charge of completing the “day-of” checklist. You should hire this person if you just need some last minute help or you want to be fully relaxed on your wedding day without worrying about anything else.
Lastly, you can hire a wedding designer. Of all the options, this person will put in the least amount of work. They won’t do much actual planning for you, but they will help you come up with your overall theme and aesthetic. This is a great person to hire if you need some help figuring out what you want it to look like, but have the rest under control.
If you aren’t looking to hire someone to help you plan, whether it is due to budget or other reasons, there are other tools that you can utilize in order to plan super easily and efficiently. We love recommending wedding bridal sites that have multiple tools and elements that you can use. Here are some great options!
One of our favorite sites that you can utilize is Zola. This is such a great option because it has pretty much everything you could need.

Another one of our highly recommended bridal sites that you have likely already heard of is The Knot. We love this one because it helps you create beautiful custom websites for your big day.
