Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

After he pops the question and you reply “Yes!” the Wedding Planning Process begins. A common question hesitantly asked by the Bride-to-Be is “Why Should I Hire a Consultant/Coordinator?” and “Is It Really Necessary?” A resounding “Yes it is necessary if you want to enjoy your day!” After one sees all of the different aspects that must be handled and the stress that arises, they realize that they actually want to enjoy the experience of the ‘big day’ and not worry about every detail. Keep in mind most weddings take up to 250 hours to plan and orchestrate.

Every wedding regardless of budget should hire a wedding planner - even if it is only for consulting along the way to keep you on track and for the day of your wedding. A coordinator works for YOU, not your venue. They have your best interest in mind and see to it that your requests are adhered to and are exactly what you envision. You need to have someone responsible taking care of all the details. They are your guide, your backbone, and your savior throughout your ‘big day.’

Professional Wedding Consultants relieve the stress and anxiety of wedding planning. They function in many roles that include Party Planner, Stage Manager, Financial Advisor, Vendor Broker, and Therapist. They have experience and can advise you not only with ideas but what does or does not work based on their past events. A professional knows it is your dream and implements your vision. They do all the leg work and administrative details that need to be accomplished. They devise a blueprint that guides you through the Rehearsal Dinner, Ceremony, Reception Site Selection, assist with Invitation and Stationery Etiquette, Menu, Attire, Select Vendors (Florist and Décor, Entertainment, Photographer, Videographer, Baker, Officiant, Stationer, and Transportation), Review Contracts, make Follow-up Phone Calls, Schedule Appointments, and create a Timeline of ‘Things to Do.’

A wedding consultant is part of your wedding budget, not an extra expense. A good consultant can save you money by suggesting less expensive alternatives as well as obtaining discounts from the service providers they work with. The "piece of mind" is worth it. Not only will we ease your mind by seeing to the details, you can also save time and money. Their experience and expertise will aid in finding the right merchant who will provide exactly what you are looking for.

A good wedding consultant knows the most cost-effective ways to plan a wedding while staying within your budget, and will maximize your buying power. So in the end you are left with a beautifully orchestrated wedding, planned by a professional, with less stress and the ability to focus on the joy of the occasion.
