Why Hire A Wedding Planner

Why Hire A Wedding Planner?

Chances are, you’ve never planned a celebration as grand as a wedding. From hundreds of local vendors, trying to recreate your vision, and fitting everything into your budget, planning your wedding can be overwhelming. Hiring a professional wedding planner can keep your wedding day flowing and stress-free so you can enjoy spending time with your loved ones. Here are five reasons why I believe a wedding planner is a key component to planning your perfect day.

  1. Stress Relief

            Planning your own wedding can be incredibly stressful: finding trustworthy vendors, getting the decor to match your wedding, figuring out exactly what needs to go into your budget, negotiating with venues, and sorting through everything else can be a hassle, and incredibly time consuming. Wedding planners know the ins-and-outs of a wedding and are able to handle all of those tasks so you can enjoy the months leading up to your big day.


 2. They know the vendors you can trust

            You imagine your perfect wedding to be decorated with flowers overflowing from their vases, a jazz band that’ll make you feel like you’re in a speakeasy, and a candlelit glow illuminating your dance floor: but which vendors will get that exactly right? What makes one florist more capable of doing this than another? Your wedding planner knows where to find the right vendors to fit the style you’re envisioning, and will know trustworthy vendors that you can count on.


 3. They’re excellent at budgeting

            No matter how small or large your budget is, weddings always have costs that you may not have thought to include in your budget: stationery for your programs, place cards, transportation for guests, alterations for the dress, vendor meals (your photographer, videographer, band, DJ, etc. need to eat too!), and the marriage license are just a few things that couples often forget to include in their budget. Your wedding planner will know all of the little things that you may forget to budget for. Not only that, but they’ll know how to stretch your money and avoid unnecessary costs so you can make your dream wedding happen.


4. They’ve seen it all

            Flowers showing up late? Beer split on a groomsman’s shirt? Missing table setting? Limo driver showing up at the wrong location? Most of the wedding horror stories you may have heard in the past happened without a wedding planner to diffuse the situation. Your wedding planner has seen it all, and works amazingly under pressure. Things can go wrong with so much happening on a wedding day, and those details are something that you should not have to worry about.


 5. This day is for you
            While you focus on yourself and your loved ones, your wedding planner will take care of all of the details. Without a wedding planner, time consuming tasks will take away from your day and instead of getting ready with your friends, you may be organizing vendors and setting up details. You and your family should be celebrating your wedding instead of worrying about whether or not the cake has arrived or if the tables were set up correctly. A wedding planner will keep you and everyone else on track.
