Reasons to hire a Wedding and Event Planner

There are many reasons a Wedding Planner, Coordinator or Specialist may be for you.  Some of which may include stress management, budget control and time.  Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and energy both physically and emotionally.  So why not sit down with a Planner or Specialist who can help guide you through the process.  Below are some details as to how a Wedding Planner/Specialist can help make your wedding run smoothly and have it be enjoyable for all involved. 

Stress – There are many decisions that need to be made and many have an intense timeline that needs to be followed.  Professionals need to be found, interviewed and booked, dresses need to be picked out and ordered in time to have them arrive and be fitted, Invitations need to be sent out with RSVP’s being tracked.  Centerpieces need to be designed to fit the overall theme.  All these things can make planning a wedding stressful but can also be things a Planner does for you thus reducing your stress and creating a memorable and fun wedding.
Budget – How many times do you get married?  Many people are not familiar with what venues cost, or how much they should pay per person for catering.  Wedding Planners/Specialists have the ability to help you wade through the proposals and negotiate them down or cut out what you do not need so that you are sticking to the budget.  They also know where to go for the items you need within the budget you have.
Time – you may just not have enough time to be able to plan your wedding.  Because of this you may fall victim to thoughts and ideas others have for you.  By hiring a Wedding Planner/Specialist you are able to plan your wedding the way you want it done while still having time to live your life. We also have no relation to your family and friends and can tell  them NO.  Creating your perfect day not theirs.
Things to consider- Day of Coordinators are fabulous when you want to plan things yourself but still want the comfort of knowing things will come together.  Regardless of if you have lots of decoration you want set up or a big grand entrance to be organized, a Day of Coordinator can make your wedding relaxing and fun.  They take on all the stress of completing the set up, managing the timeline, notifying other professionals and making sure things run smoothly.  Who wants to be in the bathroom when the best man tells the DJ he is ready for the toast.  NOT THE BRIDE that's why hiring a planner to help with your day is a good idea. We are there so that you, your husband, family and friends can all enjoy the day without having to worry about all the little details.
