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.
