I just recently got engaged and my fiance are looking at a somewhat small wedding and reception. Around 150 people with a small budget. We want to try and stay under $10,000. Is a wedding planner really necessary? I have a lot of my own ideas and I feel like I'm kind of doing a good job at what I have on paper and a bunch of my friends are all willing to help. If a wedding planner is not suggested is a DOC suggested instead?
