Wedding and Party Consultants


From directing the bride to the best dress shops and cake decorators to pinning on the corsages the day of the wedding, wedding and party consultants, sometimes called event professionals and wedding and party planners, assist in the planning of weddings, receptions, and other large celebrations and events. Most consultants deal in weddings. They generally have home-based businesses, but spend a great deal of time visiting vendors and reception and wedding sites.
