Sure it\'s okay that you\'ll hire someone and pay him/her to tackle all the details and issues; but many couples have made this costly mistake of leaving all the work to the coordinator. Not that the coordinator cannot handle it or that he/she cannot be trusted; it\'s just that it\'s not reason enough to let someone handle everything. It is ideal that you and your wedding coordinator have each a copy of your wedding checklist where you can tally each month or every 2 weeks as things progress. Yes, it is tedious and it could bring stress once in a while, but you\'ve got to be always on top of the situation because it is your wedding. You need to have an understanding with your coordinator regarding the updates and tallying of details in order to ensure that every bit of detail, big or small, is being tackled and accomplished as needed.
The item listed after the budget on the party planning checklist is usually your venue choice. If you are planning to have the party away from home the venue choice will cost money and will come out of your budget and a time will have to be arranged for decorations and so forth. If your party is going to be at home, and you have to hire a professional to come and clean some unwanted stains out of your rug the parties budget will be affected, making it an important listing in your checklist. Of course, if your home needs nothing besides some freshening up you may leave it off your list for now.
