  • Day of Consultant: A day of consultant will be there on your wedding day to make sure everything runs smoothly. They take care of all the details so you can just enjoy your wedding day.
  • A la carte Services: Many wedding consultants will also offer a la carte services where they help you with one specific aspect of the wedding. You do a majority of the planning but they might take care of finding and booking the photographer, for example.
