Job Description for Wedding Planner

Wedding planners work with couples to set up and map out all aspects of a wedding celebration. The planner typically assists with all manner of details surrounding a wedding, from helping to find dressmakers to securing venues for the ceremony and reception, and also provides recommendations and referrals for subcontractors who provide flowers, filming, photography, music, and even food and beverages. While planners are unnecessary for most civil ceremonies and small services, they've become more important in large-scale weddings in recent years.
