Hiring a wedding planner is a great idea for brides who are having an out of town wedding, whether it's in a different city or country. If you're miles or time zones away from the location, it'll be helpful to hire someone who's familiar with the area as well as local vendors and venues.

Not only will a wedding planner help you get more bang for your buck, he or she will also be able to represent you at meetings with your vendors before the big day. A planner who has knowledge of the area is also handy for helping organize all of the details you'll need to cover for your guests, such as hotel accommodations, welcome baskets, maps and directions, and a list of fun things for them to do during their downtime.
