Okay so ive been wanting to get a wedding planner simply to do all the last things we need done and get things all organised so that I can focus on the rest of the visa process that is left without dealing with that and the wedding and family flying in and everything else. Only problem is that everytime I contact a planner they say they cost around $3000 and up. I already have my venue picked food and drinks organised photographer done and I just want someone to help coordinate everything else thats left and find good deals for us. The wedding is also in a different state to where we are living and I wont be able to travel there until the wedding so a planner to take over from now would be wonderful. Does anyone know how much most planners charge in the Kansas City area or of any good affordable ones.
