I may seem biased, as I am a wedding planner myself, but before I even took the plunge to begin my career, I knew how important it was to have a planner. On today's blog post I am going to give you 5 reasons why hiring a wedding planner is so crucial for your day to run smoothly, and stress free!
1. Communication With Vendors.
Even if you don't end up hiring a planner to plan your wedding from beginning to end, as your day of coordinator, we will be sure to communicate with your vendors at least 1 month in advance! This way, you can leave all of the small details to us. Doesn't that sound amazing?!
2. Timelines & Day Of Help
Having a timeline done for you is crucial in making sure that the day runs smoothly. Without one, how will your coordinator know when to do what, at what time? If you don't have a coordinator, are you going to have your mom, or aunt run the day? Wouldn't you want them to be a part of it? So having day of help along with a timeline is absolutely necessary in my mind (again not trying to be biased...)
3. Setup & Clean up
Although most coordinators charge a bit extra for set up and breakdown, it's worth it at the end of the night when you are exhausted! Trust me, your family doesn't want to clean! On the other hand, if you have a large family, willing to help your coordinator, we may not even charge extra! So either way, having a good coordinator will end up making your lives, and your family's lives easier too.
4. From Beginning To End
As wedding planners, we also love starting a wedding from scratch! From the vendor meetings to the tastings, we don't mind these appointments one bit! I always recommend a full service planner when a bride is overwhelmed with work, or even family. Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life! Not the most stressful.
This may sound corny, but I truly love the friendships and relationships I make with my couples! Spending all of this time chatting, going to appointments, and being a part of such a magical day, ultimately ends up in a beautiful friendship that lasts a lifetime, and I couldn't imagine a better career! My goal as a wedding planner is to not only be your coordinator, confidant, or professional go-to person, it's also to make sure you're enjoying the process every step of the way. As a friend, and as your planner! You can lean on me when things get stressful, and you can know that I will be here even when you're married!
As always, it's a pleasure to share my experiences with you all, and I truly hope you take this as a kick in the booty to hire the perfect wedding planner for your special day!
