Breaking Down the Different Types of Wedding Planners

When planning your big day, it’s helpful to be in the right hands. We spoke with four expert planners who broke down the different types of planning packages. Jess Wegner spoke to month-of planning, while Chloe Allday touched on partial planning, and Luke Wilson discussed full planning. But today, Sara Fay Egan of Sara Fay Egan Events tells us about a planning and design package.

Planning and Design

If you select this option, the sky’s the limit. “We love to think of the entire wedding from start to finish from both a design eye and logistics standpoint,”says Egan. “I believe both have to work in tandem to have a truly successful, unique, and creative event.” Expect your planner/designer to get to know both you and your fiancé’s personalities—though you can give as much or as little input as you want on details and aesthetics; just share your vision, and let your team do the rest. If you want your wedding to be truly unique, this might be your best option.
