Planning a wedding is a big commitment of both time and money, that often comes with a lot of stress. Considering most weddings take a year of planning, countless hours, phone calls, and possible headaches– hiring a planner gives you peace of mind knowing all the details and logistics are being taken care of for you. We believe letting the planner take all the work off of your hands, allows you to be fully present and enjoy your engagement and wedding. Trust us, being stressed out by wedding planning instead of blissfully enjoying being engaged is no fun! Here are some of our top benefits and reasons why investing in a wedding planner is so worth it:
Planners Are Well Connected
Planners oftentimes have connections with local vendors. They will usually have a tried and true list of vendors that they know to do business well. Maybe you have your heart set on a certain caterer, but your planner knows that caterer has shown up late to two weddings she’s planned. Information like this could save you a lot of time, money, and headaches.
Planners Know What To Expect
It’s hard to come up with a realistic budget when you don’t know the normal, industry pricing for wedding vendors. Wedding planners know the pricing, allowing them to come up with a realistic budget and help you stick to it. If they don’t know the price off the top of their head, they save you the headache of trying to find it out yourself.
Planners Keep Things Stress-free
Planners act as your vendor point-of-contact, which is awesome! No busy couple wants to be bothered by multiple vendors coming to the bride and groom suites asking last-minute questions- and no vendor wants to have to bother the couple. Your wedding planner will conduct all communication with them, so you won’t have to think twice about things running smoothly.
Planners Are There To Support You
Some couples are hesitant to planners because they want to be heavily involved in the planning or worry that the planner may take over their vision. Don’t worry, planners are here to support your vision and your vision only! A planner’s job is to support the bride and groom, reduce stress, offer knowledge, and enhance the overall wedding experience.
Planners Save Relationships
Although it may be tempting to let your aunt or a friend plan your wedding, it may not always be the best option. Planning a wedding can be stressful and you don’t want any tension created as a result of the stress. Also, when the person has a personal connection to you, they may be more inclined to push what they think is right, even if it’s unintentional. Planners want you and all of your family and friends to enjoy the event!
Planners Can Save You Money
Having built-in relationships with vendors, wedding planners can help to make sure you’re getting the best value for your money. Wedding planners are often repeat customers to the local vendors so maintaining a positive working relationship is important to both parties. We all know the saying “It’s not what you know. It’s who you know”.
A wedding planner can definitely play a big role in reducing and eliminating worry or anxiety leading up to your wedding day. Giving clients peace of mind is a big goal for wedding planners. An investment in a professional planner is one step closer to achieving your dream wedding.

My son is going to be getting married, but he's been stressing out about how he's going to get the event organized. It makes sense that working with a wedding planner would make this a lot easier for him! I can see how that would make things a lot more relaxing for him.

My cousin has been thinking about getting married in the Fall because she really likes all of the leaves. She would really like to have one outside because she really likes the atmosphere. I'll be sure to tell her about how a planner should support her vision by knowing the right vendors that can help her have it outside which can prevent their stress.

I never thought about how a planner would know which caterers have shown up late and such. I would trust a planner to help me find the right caterer. Otherwise, I could end up hiring the wrong company and ruining the whole experience for everyone else.

The wedding planners do their best to make the event successful because they knew the importance of the event for their clients. They work hard so that’s why their clients are also happy with their services.

Thanks for pointing out that planning a wedding can be stressful and couples do not want any tension created as a result of the stress. My brother is finally asking his partner to get married in March so this is helpful. He is also hoping to find a custom jeweler on Monday who can provide a diamond ring with an engraved band.

It's really an informative post! thanks for sharing.
I like that you pointed out that planners would know the prices for each supplier or package, so they will help you come up with a realistic budget for your special day. I will share this information with my partner now that we are starting to look at wedding service packages after we were engaged last week. Hopefully, we can find one that we can afford, since we have a limited budget due to wanting to get married in this same year as well.
