Wedding Planners

The Best Wedding Planners in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill & Cary, NC

The wedding planners listed below are invited into Heart of NC Weddings after we see or experience their work and confirm that they have established an esteemed reputation. We have gotten to know each of these professionals personally - many have been in the Heart of NC Weddings Family for years. We are quite certain that these are the top tier of wedding planners in NC! All of our recommended wedding planners are based in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Wilmington. Each offers full-service as well as partial service wedding planning. Many of the NC wedding planners listed on this page also specialize in wedding design. A designer is exactly what it sounds like – they help create the look for your event.

You should hire your wedding planner after selecting your date to help with your budget, timeline, and hiring vendors. They will be with you for every decision. Wedding planners are perfect for busy professional NC engaged couples who can’t time off work for appointments – your planner can act as your representative in negotiations.

If you cannot afford a full service wedding planner or designer, you should still book a month of wedding planner or coordinator. Many Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill wedding venues actually require that you hire a wedding planner to run the day. In this case, you would make the majority of planning decisions and then hand those details off to the coordinator to run the wedding weekend. A good coordinator knows the right questions to ask to make sure the couple hasn’t missed any crucial steps in the planning process. They will also confirm with the vendors to make sure contracts are being followed, and they will keep the wedding party informed of expectations for the wedding. They run the action on the rehearsal and the wedding day.

All of these NC wedding planners are respected in their field and we can personally attest to their talent. We hope you will seek out one for your Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill or Wilmington wedding!
