Why should I hire a Wedding Planner?
I get this question a lot from potential clients. I often hear, my mom said she would plan my wedding, or I have an aunt who said she would help out on the wedding day. As wonderful and generous as it is for family and friends to offer their assistance with your wedding, it is still crucial to have a professional wedding planner to assist you and manage the details of your big day.
First, hiring a wedding planner can save you time and money. They know lots of wedding vendors in all budget ranges. They can help you find vendors that are in your budget. This saves you the time from googling and calling 20 different florist to find one that fits with your needs. Also your planner knows your style and personality so they will also recommend vendors they feel will work well with you. Which makes the planning process smoother.
Secondly a wedding planner can help make the wedding vision in your head a reality. These days most brides to be have a Pintrest board of all of their wedding ideas. It’s great to have a visual to share when explaining to vendors what you want. However sometimes the vision and the reality are two very different things. Your planner can help you prioritize you vision and narrow down options. This will ensure your wedding day doesn’t look like a big explosion of every wedding day idea you’ve ever had. They will assist you in creating a beautiful event that speaks to your style and personality.
The final and most important reason you want to hire a wedding planner is, because you want to actually enjoy your wedding day! Having a wedding planner means that the day of the wedding you can turn over all the details of set up, schedule, and guest management to your planner. We oversee everything from vendor arrivals, alphabetizing escort cards, lining up the bridal party, and any other detail you can think of on your big day. This allows you to actually enjoy your wedding, spend your day dancing and chatting with your guest. Instead of worrying about when the cake is going to arrive or who is going to make sure the band knows where to set up. For this reason alone I say hiring a planner is absolutely necessary. Your wedding day goes by so fast and you only get one chance to enjoy it. When you hire a good wedding planner you well on your way to ensuring that you will enjoy every moment of the big day. I’d say that is money very well spent.
