In the age of Pinterest and working from home, many newly engaged couples think they've GOT this. They've hosted dinner parties before, have a wedding idea board on Pinterest, and have helped their cousin set up decor for their wedding. They've even been saving DIY wedding hacks from TikTok. They can definitely do it all on their own, and if they get stuck, they can ask their mom or their MOH for help. Right? Or maybe wrong? Do you need a wedding planner?
We know we're a little biased, but we say YES! Let us tell you why with the top 5 ways a wedding planner helps you!
