Hiring a wedding planner is not everyone’s cup of tea. There are those brides who want to immerse themselves in planning and enjoy organizing every last detail. However, your wedding is a very important day and most brides have their own vision of what it will look like. Having an expert by your side can be an invaluable tool for helping you bring that vision to life!
1.Time and Money–Wedding planning is a lot of work and consumes a lot of your time, especially for shorter engagements where it all needs to be executed and planned quickly yet flawlessly. It is estimated that on average brides to-be spend 15-20 hours per week planning their wedding. This is the equivalant of a part time job!
Money and financials is one of the hardest aspects of planning a wedding. We understand, they are expensive! All the questions need to be discussed, who’s paying, how much, when is your bill due? Most importantly, how do you ensure you don’t go over budget? By using a wedding planner, your wedding budget is managed and and they let you know how much things should cost, roughly what percentage of your budget will be spent where, and when payments need to be made in order to secure services or products.
2. They bring your vision to life – If you have a vague idea, or no idea at all, a wedding planner can help you define the look, style, mood and emotions you want to create. They are educated on the latest trends, and can visualize what will work in your venue, and your budget to bring your vision to life.
3. Saving close relationships – Your friends and family are great for advice and counsel, but despite all their best intentions to help plan and execute the wedding of your dreams, friends and family members have their own daily obligations, i.e. jobs and personal responsibilities. You would hate to burden them, as harsh as it sounds, they may not have enough time and energy for your wedding planning. Hiring a professional planner takes away all the busy and tedious responsibilities of planning a wedding, leaving you, your friends, and family members to enjoy only the fun portions!
4. Ensures reputable vendors are involved –Let’s be honest, there are so many vendors out there. Look at how many pop up when you search “florist” into the Knot.com website. Hundreds… it is becoming increasingly difficult to decipher which vendors are trustworthy and a good match for you. Without a wedding planner, most brides base their decisions on internet searches or recommendations from friends. While we absolutely accredit these websites and think they’re valuable, most professional wedding planners have extensive networks of vendors with whom they have worked closely.
