One of the most common questions I get asked is “Why do I need to hire a Wedding Planner?” Hiring the right planner for your big day can make the difference between hosting your wedding and attending it. Someone has to be in charge and keep things organized - if it’s not a planner, it will be you and your partner or your family and friends! Think about what it’s like to host a party at your home vs going to someone else’s. Do you want to be running around making sure the flowers are set up correctly and the food is coming out at the right time, or do you want to relax and enjoy the day and let someone else take care of the logistics?
Every couple has different needs when it comes to planning their wedding and every experience will be different. A good planner will work with you to figure out exactly what your needs are and create a customized package specifically for you.
A good wedding planner has experience in the industry and has relationships with trusted vendors also in the industry. She / he will save you hours of searching through online reviews by directing you to vendors they know and trust – they may also be able to get you a good deal! Furthermore, the planner can act as the main contact for the vendors so that you don’t have to deal with all the back and forth when planning meetings and finalizing the details. They can also save you money by extending to you their experience with things that work and don’t work – they’ve heard or seen it all!
On the day of your wedding, you should be relaxing and focusing on getting MARRIED, not worrying about whether or not the cake showed up on time. You could ask your family and friends to do the bulk of the work (instead of relaxing and spending time with you!) but a planner is a professional. A planner knows how to deal with emergencies and create a seamless experience for you and your guests. You probably won’t even know anything went wrong!
Every couple deserves the opportunity to enjoy their wedding day and a wedding planner allows you to do just that! Don't spend the happiest day of your life stressing about the details - let someone else take care of that for you. Hiring a wedding planner is an investment that will save you time, money and stress. You deserve it!
