Hiring a Wedding Planner: What Do They Do, Exactly?

You can opt for the works or hourly consulting. Find out which is best for you.

The services run the gamut. Just visit the website of Rehoboth Beach-based Make My Day Event Planning. There are at least five packages that can be customized, as well as a la carte offerings. 

Hire a planner to handle an entire wedding, from finding the rehearsal caterer to planning the morning-after brunch. Or, pay an hourly consulting fee. You can also opt for day-of services. (The planner should still insist on one or more meetings to go over the day-of details.) 

“Except for picking out the dress, deciding their guest list and paying their vendors, there is pretty much nothing we won’t do,” says Samantha Diedrick, owner of Secretariat in Wilmington, which has planned weddings since 1948.
