We’re firm believers that hiring a wedding planner is a priceless investment into your day. You and your loved ones should be able to enjoy your planning process stress-free while maintaining your everyday life. It’s beneficial to have someone lead you through all the steps of planning to ensure your day runs smoothly – this way, you can enjoy every moment. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding planner and wondering if it’s the right decision for you, read on…
It may seem impossible to keep track of all decisions, meetings, budgets and bookings. With the help of a planner, they will assist with keeping you organized. Using checklists, meeting reminders, budget spreadsheets, and other planning tools, you’ll never forget a meeting and you can easily keep track of what’s been done – and what is left to do!
There are a few ways a wedding planner can help you spend a little smarter. First, they will help you avoid costly mistakes. Second, many planners have relationships with vendors and can provide you with preferred rates. Finally, your planner should assist with budgeting. Budgeting allows you to allocate funds in the right areas based on your wedding vision. Since it’s very easy to lose track and go above and beyond what you had anticipated financially, budgeting allows you to allocate funds in the right areas based on your wedding vision and your planner will ensure you’re staying on target.
Enjoy Your Day & Alleviate Stress
This is one of the most important reasons by far. Your planner is your go-to person on the day of the event – they answer questions and make decisions on your behalf. If a problem arises they will handle it inconspicuously, without worrying you or causing you or a family or friend the unnecessary stress. A good planner will solve day-of issues with patience and a sense of calmness. It is important for you, your significant other, friends and family to enjoy the day and with a planner, you can relax knowing everything is under control.
Stick To The Timeline
A lot of work, effort and time goes into planning your day – so, you want to ensure the day flows without a hitch. Your planner will assist you with creating a timeline and ensure that it is executed on the big day. Your planner will confirm that all vendors arrive on time for setup, they will cue your ceremony, speeches and any other important moments. You can rest assured that the day will be properly timed and coordinated.
You don’t want to spend hours finding vendors, or waste time at initial meetings if the vendor is not the right fit. There are hundreds of suppliers in the wedding industry and it takes many to create a successful event. This process can easily feel overwhelming with the many available options. Your planner can assist by providing vendor recommendations of companies they trust and have worked with before that they know will fit your style and budget. Ultimately vendor recommendations from your planner saves you time and ultimately saves you the worry of knowing if you’ve made the right choices.
Guests Are Taken Care Of
You can trust that your guests will be taken care of and are comfortable. Guests often have questions that a planner can answer: ‘Where’s the washroom? Where can I leave my gift? I forgot to request a vegetarian option for dinner – can you help?’. Every planner should also carry an emergency kit for you, your bridal party and for guests. In the case that someone needs a band-aid, an antacid, or a Kleenex (to wipe away the happy tears) – your planner has this covered.
Making Your Vision A Reality
From your initial consultation, through design meetings, to the very end of your wedding day – your planner will assist with bringing your vision to life. They are familiar with the latest trends, colors and can visualize how to make the best out of your chosen venue. A planner will assist with making your wedding a consistent and cohesive style, look and mood while infusing your own personalities, styles, and taste. Sometimes you know exactly what you want – without knowing how to execute it; your planner will help you with design decisions to ensure your visions become a beautiful reality for you and your guests.
They’ve Done It Before!
It’s as simple as that…they’ve done it before. They know what works, what doesn’t – experience is key and they are familiar with planning successful events!
Don’t forget: When hiring a wedding planner – be sure to find the one that is the right fit for you. Your planner must be someone you can fully trust to guide you throughout your planning experience.
