I've always thought that I would never need a wedding planner (because watching wedding shows on WeTV makes you a wedding expert :P). I have loved the idea of weddings and planning weddings far before I was engaged. But now that I am actually planning my wedding, I am seriously considering hiring a planner.
For one thing, my wedding is accross the state (for no reason other than we found an amazing venue). I don't know anyone from the area, and its about a 3 hour drive for us. I am also in graduate school, which is stressful and time consuming enough without the addition of planning a wedding. I just think that having a planner would make my life so much easier and less stressful.
On the other hand, we don't really have extra money in our budget (if things keep going the way they are we might end up over budget as it is). But I hear that the cost of a wedding planner balances out because of their connections with people in the industry.
So I'm not sure. We've talked about it and haven't made a decision yet. What do you ladies think? Are any of you hiring a planner?
