7 Reasons to hire a wedding planner? Do I really need one?

I’m going to admit I’m a little bias in writing this blog post, because of course, I’m a wedding planner. But, I’ve also been on the other side of friends and families weddings and have seen it all go wrong when they don’t have someone trusted in their corner. So lets get right down to it. Why do you need a wedding planner?

1. Savings, savings, savings

Not only will a wedding planner help you save money, but we will also save you something so much more valuable. Your time. An average wedding takes between 200-400 hours to plan. That’s a lot of time, so why reinvent the wheel. We have done this hundreds of times. We have it down to a science. Of course, every wedding is unique and the couple’s visions are all different and that means the world to us (otherwise our job would be very boring). The modern couple is extremely busy. We are here to take some of that stress away; and do the running around for you. Now saving money! Everyone’s favorite part. I know with my company we have special deals worked out in advance with vendors that will give a discount to couples just from my referral. Pretty cool right. Your saving money right there. Second we have a full boutique with tons of items that you can use and bigger items that are available to rent. In the end, couples usually make up my cost and so much more by just hiring us and utilizing everything we have to offer.

2. Letting out your wedding energy

We eat, sleep, and breath weddings. We love it. It’s our passion and luckily enough our careers. We are here to listen to your ideas, to your venting, and along the way become your friend. I know for a fact that my boyfriend is sick of listening to me talk about weddings. Let’s face it men can only hear about weddings for so long, that is why we are here.

3. We are here to make your dreams a reality and offer advice.

We know the latest trends and the etiquette behind almost every type of wedding and tradition. We also have learned throughout the years what is actually feasible and what only looks good on pinterest. We are hear to make your vision come to life but, we will also let you know if something just will not work.

4. Family and Friends are not a substitute for a wedding planner.

Please, don’t get me wrong. Friends and family are such an amazing and important part to your wedding day. But, they should be bearing witness to the exchange of love taking place and everyone coming together, not if the tables are set correctly or if the DJ arrived on time. Like I said early we have done this before we know how to divert a mishap and fix everything before you notice; a friend or family member does not have this knowledge or connections in the business. This brings me to my next point.

5. Less Stress More Fun

Let us handle the set up of all your personal items that make your wedding unique. The last thing you want to be doing on your wedding day is tying 150 sashes to the backs of chairs. That’s our job. What happens if a caterer forgets to order an oven? (It’s happened to us before) Is that something you want to deal with or would even know what to do? We are professionals we handle that stuff. Most of the time, almost 99.9% of the time you have no idea anything is going on. Go enjoy your day, have fun; leave the stressful stuff to us.

6. We are with you from ceremony rehearsal to cleaning up your event.

We walk you and your wedding party and families through the ceremony rehearsal, are there the next day setting up, making sure your vision is carried out and then we clean everything up for you.

Ok, one more reasons. And, I think it is the most important one of all.

7. Piece of Mind

We are here for you. We will always have your best interest in mind. We are not best friends with the florist and are not trying to get you to spend more money with a certain vendor because we get a kick back. We are here to support you in the planning process and your big day. Let us be there to for you.
