Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and we believe you should be able to enjoy it! Like your engagement, your wedding day happens once, and it will be over in the blink of an eye! So why not hire someone who will allow the planning process to be stress free and enjoyable? You might have known right away that you wanted to hire a planner or maybe you’re still unsure it’s worth the added expense. Either way, take a look at just a few of our top reasons why hiring a wedding planner will be a decision you never regret!
1. Budget Control
Budgets…they are not the most exciting part of wedding planning but definitely an important part! Setting and keeping to your budget will make the entire wedding planning process run seamlessly for both you and your families. Your wedding planner will work with you to create a budget that is realistic and will make sure you are spending your money wisely and not overpaying for services. Planners often have professional relationships established with multiple vendors who may offer special incentives or small discounts to clients working with a planner. Working with a well-established and organized planner can make each of the vendors’ jobs easier logistically leading up to the big day and of course, on the big day itself. This savings can help cover some of the costs of hiring a planner in the first place! He or she will find ways to focus on what’s important to you and your fiancé and save throughout the process without compromising your vision!
2. Stress Free Planning
Don’t get us wrong, wedding planning is a TON of fun but it can also be stressful and for some, it will feel like a full time job. Your planner will eliminate this stress from your life and become your biggest ally throughout the process. He or she will help guide you through any situation and will always be there to lend an ear or a suggestion. The planner is the “go to” person for the event (so that you or your close friends and family do not have to be this point person). Many times weddings can have 20+ vendors involved in pulling off an event. When you factor that number in with your entire wedding party, your family, and your guests, you have lots of people with questions and concerns! Your wedding planner can provide answers to all those people and ensure that you only have to think about the love and joy of the day, not the details! You will be able to kick back your heels, have a glass of champagne and enjoy this time in your life with the people you love most!
3. Wedding Day Support
Your wedding day is supposed to be magical not overwhelming. Your wedding planner will be focused on the logistics of the day, making sure everything is carried out as planned and no details are overlooked. Many venues have amazing event coordinators there to help with certain parts of the day but their role is typically a bit more limited to the venue logistics itself instead of the entire wedding day. In most cases, your venue coordinator will be focused on making sure the room is set properly, food and beverages are served on time, and that their staff is knowledgeable about the timeline for the event. A wedding planner will be a second set of eyes at the event and will make sure every detail is covered. We’ll do the big things like making sure your getaway car arrives on time and your band knows your song requests and the little (but critical) things like making sure the champagne is poured before the toasts start. We’ll even know what special family pictures you would like your photographer to capture during the day. Instead of worrying about whether things are happening on schedule or if all the guests receive a piece of cake, you can live in the moment, dance until your feet hurt and marry your best friend!
