The one thing that a bride will almost always tell you what she wished she did different on her wedding day, is hire a wedding planner. Here are some reasons why and they may come as a suprise:
It saves you money! Weddings are expensive as we all know. If you are unexperienced, you have no knowledge of how much anything should cost and the quailty level equivilant to that cost. As a planner, my job is to budget your wedding and keep you under that budget. A good planner will also have many great connections with vendors who give deals to their clients for refferals ;)
It saves you time! A wedding can take 200-400 hours to plan, this can be super overwhelming for a couple who works full time. If you hire a planner, we do any and all research needed to make your wildest dreams a reality. We provide you exactly what you requested in your budget.
It's your day, why stress? A CEO doesn't run his company alone, right? Could you imagine if he did, the company probably wouldn't last without his paid staff. Point is, your wedding is once in a lifetime, why step out of your hair or makeup appointment two hours before the ceremony to deal with a late or lost limo or handle the wrong order of flowers that the florist sent? You need to focus on you and your soon to be husband, not the placement of the guest book and flower arrangements.
Your friends and family are not there to work. You are not the only one shelling out tons of money for this event. Your bridesmaids and family are spending quite alot, on gifts, expenses of the engagment, bachelorette parties and bridal shower, dresses, hair, makeup etc. It's their time also to celebrate with you and let loose. It wouldn't be fair to put your family or friends to work when they need to be there for photos and enoying themselves as well.
Because we can make your dreams come true. You have looked at pintrest for days, months maybe years pinning your dream weddng, but do you even know where to start ? As a wedding planner we have seen it all, the sword swallowing performance, the helicopter entrance, the horse and buggy, beach weddings, farm weddings, backyard bbqs and million dollar mansion weddings. Any vision you have we make it happen.
