A Wedding planner is a professional who assists with planning and organization of weddings.
Weddings are thought to be a once a lifetime event and the organizers of a wedding (the couple and their families) are often willing to send a considerable amount of money to ensure it is organized as perfectly as possible. Wedding disasters can be quite painful.
This has given rise to professional wedding planners in several countries and communities. They attempt to ensure that the planned events occur as expected.
Some wedding planners charge either a fraction of the wedding cost, (which can range between $20,000 to $2 million in relatively affluent communites in USA) or a flat fee.
