- Wedding: July 2010
So the budget for my wedding is pretty small, especially for living in uber expensive for a wedding city, San Diego. My grandmother, who is paying for a good portion of the wedding (but still not nearly all of it) called today to tell me she wants to get a planner. The thing is, I don’t think she is going to pay the difference OVER the budget she gave me, which really scares me because I can’t afford to spend the $2000 or so that a planner costs. So our wedding is at a really high end hotel and I don’t really need someone for the day of, as the hotel will be setting up everything and the only vendors I will have will be DJ and cake (which I’m guessing I can have a family member pick up) and maybe flowers unless I do them myself. When I’ve been looking at wedding coordinator websites, it seems that they don’t help with much except calling vendors and helping you clean up, etc… I don’t understand why I would need one, but I see that a lot of people say they are valuable. Is that just if you are doing in someplace that doesn’t set stuff up for you?
