5 Reasons You Should Hire a Wedding Planner

why you should hire a wedding planner

When it comes to wedding planning, you run into three different types of people: 

  1. The “I have no idea what I’m doing, please do it all for me” people.
  2. The “I want to be involved, and do this together” people.
  3. The “I’ve got this, and I don’t need help” people. 

Regardless of which of these is your  wedding planning style, you need a wedding planner for your big day, and we’ll tell you why! Hiring a wedding planner helps with everything from communicating with vendors, managing your budget, creating your design vision, and guiding you through the never ending list of to do's while still working your day job! Come on, don’t try to be superwoman all on your own! Wedding planning can be extremely overwhelming for one to tackle on their own, especially because you’ve probably never planned an event like this before!

To us, it doesn’t matter how much help you need or which planning package you choose. We believe you need a wedding planner either way (and we aren’t just saying this because it’s our job). If you want to stress throughout your wedding planning process and even worse, on your big day, then go solo... But if you want to have peace of mind, stay on track and have fun with the process, then hiring a little extra help from a wedding planner is the way to go. There is NO time for stress, tears (except happy tears) or fights with whomever, leading up to or on your wedding day. 

Which leads us to this - Here are our TOP 5 reasons (we could go on forever) why you need a wedding planner for your big day. 

It’s Our Job as Wedding Planners

First and most importantly, we are wedding planning experts and wedding industry professionals. Wedding planning is our job. Yes it’s fun, but it’s something that we have committed our careers to. We’re trained, have years of experience, and are highly knowledgeable about the wedding industry. This is the number one reason why you need a wedding planner. 

As experts, we know what we’re doing. We know how to juggle multiple roles as the designer, budget manager, communicator, coordinator, your right hand gal, and whatever else you need us to be, all while helping you pull together your dream wedding. 

Not only that, vendors trust us and know us. We’re connected with the best wedding pros in your area ensuring you have none other than the best team to pull off your wedding day. Having a great group of vendors, with your wedding planner at the helm  makes a world of difference when it comes to the kind of wedding you end up having - it truly takes a village!

A Wedding Planner Will Save You Time

Whether you hire us to be there for you throughout the entire wedding planning process, or just to step in the month before, you need a wedding planner because we can save you a ton of time. Think about it, do you really want to be setting up your tables or lighting candles on the day-of your wedding? NOPE? Didn’t think so. 

Your wedding only comes once. All we want for our clients in the weeks and months leading up to their wedding day is to be able to embrace all of the special moments and excitement to the fullest with as little stress as possible. 

In addition, leading up to your wedding, you will already have plenty on your plate. When you hire a wedding planner, you can focus on the things that really matter like family coming into town, getting your dress and accessories in order, and enjoying your last days of being a fiancé! 

Your Wedding Planner Will Help You Stick to Your Budget

While you may think hiring a wedding planner is a big chunk of your budget, it’s actually an investment that will ensure you enjoy your wedding planning process and wedding day. 

Which wedding planning package you choose determines how involved we are with your budget management. However, even if we are just stepping in the month before your wedding, you always have access to your wedding planner to help you make decisions, purchases and negotiations to save you money in the long run. This is one of the big reasons why you need a wedding planner. We’ll keep track of your spending! 

A Wedding Planner Will Bring Your Wedding Day Dreams to Life

This is the most rewarding part of our job. When you find a wedding planner, one you click with, they can help you bring your wedding vision to life. 

But, you have to pick the right one for you. We recommend researching their website, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. Do your research, ask questions, read reviews and really think about if this person can help you bring your vision to life. After all, you’re trusting them with your wedding day! 

As wedding planners, seeing a wedding come to life is our favorite part. We get to set everything up, style it, and then we get to see your expression when you walk into your wedding reception for the first time.  We get to watch you marry the love of your life like you’ve been dreaming of. Playing that role on your wedding day brings us so much joy and it never gets old. We’ll be right there with you crying all the happy tears!

You need  a wedding planner, the right one, because you are trusting this person to pull off the day you’ve been dreaming of, your biggest day! No pressure!
