Hello! I’m installing Mariadb server on my LEMP stack setup for my WordPress blog, but I’m confused if I should install the MariaDB client too.

The client is only if you would like to use the command line to manage the server. If you would like to do so, you can install the client on the same system or even manage it from a remote system with the cli client.
