We hired a planner as soon as we decided its time to plan the wedding and they have been a wonderful support and so far we have booked a venue and our djs. Its been so relaxing as they give us options from our description of our expectations and so far we are getting best of the best options and we can choose which one we like the best based on our budget. 

I know in the US its a lot more expensive. We live in Ireland but our wedding will be in Poland so planning a destination wedding would be a pain in the butt hence we went with planners. Its also cheaper than planners in US or Ireland but you can have day of coordination plan and theyre usually cheaper. 

Hope this helps a little.

smtx21 :  We are hiring a Day of Coordinator. I have done all the research needed to find vendors in my area. I also have a checklist that I found online to help with managing things and staying organized. We will be diy’ng our on decorations for the wedding. The coordinator will set up and make sure things flow like they should. We found our on venue, catering, photography, videography etc.  Our coordinator owns her own event planning business. We are saving money by using her, as she provided a package deal for our catering, photography, cake, servers and bartenders. So the only thing we hired seperately was the officiate, MUA, DJ & videographer. I later found out she also could provide a DJ but we already had one booked.  If you can manage to do things yourself them maybe a partial planner or DOC would work for you
