Do I Need to Hire a Wedding Planner?
This is a legitimate question that run through an engaged couples’ head, so let’s tackle it and break it down. How will hiring a wedding planner benefit you?
8 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner
Saves you Time - On average it takes 250 hours to plan a wedding from beginning to end. Most people underestimate the amount of work involved and the amount of details that need to be taken care of behind the scenes. If you already work a full-time job you don’t want to be spending all your time off full-time planning. With a planner there will be less wedding planning from behind your office desk and more time spent working on the presentation deadline.
Saves you $$$ - The initial price you’re dishing out for a wedding planner could seem unnecessary at first but in hindsight can save you more money in the long run. Wedding experts can easily spot vendor pricing that it over the moon high or too low to be true. We have connections in the wedding industry and can negotiate better pricing and deals for you, in turn saving you costs.
Sticking to your Budget - Behind all the flowers and fun there is always a financial strategy. Professionals know what percentage of your total budget to allocate to each aspect of your wedding and what will create more impact for your attending guests.
Turn Dream Vision into Reality - A lot of the earlier stage of wedding planning is researching to find the perfect vendors. After years of networking in the industry and working with a wide range of vendors, wedding planners will know which vendors will be a better fit for you. For example, a photographer who focuses on more candid shots versus a photographer who prefers posed shots. A florist specializing in natural, minimal decor versus a florist who specializes in luxury, extravagant and glamorous decor. These vendors will ultimately be the dream team that will build your wedding vision.
Less Stress - Ultimately hiring a wedding planner is prevention from you pulling your hair out. Having a coordinator will really let you enjoy the planning process experience instead of wishing this could all be over with still a month left to go. As your wedding planner we take care of everything to the smallest details, Last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is if your wedding cake got delivered on time and in one piece or finding your maid of honor cause she went mia for the past hour.
We are the Go-To Person on the Day-Of - On your wedding day you do not need people coming up to you and asking 1000 questions. This is why you hired a wedding planner, the one who will take care of any last minute hiccups and the point-person when vendors and guests have questions. After all your wedding planner will know all details of your wedding inside and out.
Detail-Focused - This is one of the reasons why we do what we do. As professionals, we are passionate about making your wedding day your BEST day! Regardless of the size of your event, the key to its success are in the details. A good wedding planner will be a little OCD (in the best way) and make sure every corner of the room is picture perfect.
Time Crunch - You want to marry your best friend but you don’t want to wait the customary one year. So you have less than a year to whip up the wedding of your dreams in half the time. Decisions need to be made, deadlines creep up faster than you think but that’s nothing your planner can’t seamlessly tackle.
