Do you need a wedding planner to plan your wedding?

Hiring a wedding planner adds to your budget, but he or she can be a godsend, especially if you’re planning a destination wedding. If you and your groom both have demanding jobs or if you just can’t be made to care about flowers and table settings, hiring a planner can also save you a lot of grief.

Or you may just want someone on your team who’s seen dozens – if not hundreds – of weddings and knows how to handle just about anything.

If you decide you want a wedding planner, think of a wedding you really loved and then hold the bride’s sister hostage until she tells you who the planner was. Or you could check out our extensive listings complete with personal ratings and reviews over here.

This month’s stress-buster: Schedule yourself some fun. Take some time and make a list of 30 things you love doing. There are no rules – just anything you love. Barbecuing, cartwheels, knitting, reading murder mysteries, and snogging your groom are all fair game. Once you’ve got your 30, pick three to actually do during the next month.
