I don’t think that you always have to.  A lot of times the wedding planner and the vendors have relationships and try to throw business the other ones way.  Check around on the Bee and see what other ladies have used or will be using.

On the other hand, you are paying her for a job.  Once she is staying within budget, let her do her thing.  Hope everything works out.

You don’t always have to use your planner’s suggestions, and the vendors she recommends are people that she’s worked with in the past and has a successful relationship with.  She can also negotiate discounts with vendors that you can’t.

I would read reviews of the cheaper vendors and see what other people think of them.  If they seem easy to work with then I would go with that.  And if your wedding planner is always pushing things on you that are out of your budget, a serious talking to is needed!

No, you don’t have too. Most of the time Wedding Planners go with people I know. I let my wedding planner know if I have found something cheaper. It’s your money, you don’t have to go with everything she says.
