You’ll have a non-judgemental friend
Your wedding planner wants to make sure you’re happy, unstressed, and relaxed; they want to make sure your special day goes as planned. For example, if you are beyond excited about the venue and vendors that you have chosen and your friends are just done hearing about it, your wedding planner is always there to listen to matters (seriously, we love weddings and are so excited to know everything). Although your wedding planner isn’t a therapist, they can act as a mediator and negotiator in some situations. Having a third party voice that has been through the wedding process and knows what to expect is a huge benefit, especially since most of you haven’t done this before! So having a wedding planner that is always there for you and always willing to listen is just like hiring a friend.
They can transform the space for you
Choosing a vendor can be one of the most difficult tasks if you are trying to imagine your special day all alone. A wedding planner can help you reimagine the space so you can envision your own decor in the venue. Whether you want a cinderella themed wedding with 500 guests or an intimate boho reception with 10 guests, your wedding planner can make it a reality. Never settle short and don’t underestimate your wedding planner because they are able to make your special day exactly how you always envisioned it being.
They bring your dreams to life
In most movies, the wedding planner completely takes over the wedding – however, that is far from the truth. We are all about making your day reflect you and your partner. Trust is so important which is why picking your vendors is so important – read 5 Red Flags when hiring vendors to learn more.
You have someone with industry experience
Planners know exactly what they’re doing because they have done it before. It can be hard to find the perfect vendors for your theme or that match your personality. However, a wedding planner with industry experience is going to have the perfect vendor fits in your budget, style, and personality type.
There are multiple different types of packages to choose from
If you are feeling hesitant about hiring a wedding planner because you don’t feel like you need them full time, not to worry! There are full packages, partial packages, and a month of packages (and more!). Full planning handles EVERYTHING. Partial planning packages help you with specific aspects of your wedding but not the whole thing, in case you’re just needing some guidance. And a month of planner ties up those loose ends and makes sure that your wedding day is as you wanted, as well as creating timelines and doing last-minute communication with vendors. And if you aren’t 100% sure what you’re needing, that’s okay. Reach out to someone and talk to them – they will be able to help determine the level of service you’re needing!
Come up With Creative Alternatives
It is easy for your mind to wander to the movies and think I need the white dress, an aisle with two lanes, and wine for all of the guests (all of those traditions). But, we are here to help make your wedding as personalized and non traditional as you want it to be. It is also important to question why you are making certain decisions throughout the planning process, that way you don’t regret anything when the day comes. My biggest piece of advice? Stop asking your mother in law for permission, just do it. When working with a wedding planner, you can make sure your wedding feels exactly like you!
Takes the Stress Away
Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful. A huge benefit to hiring a wedding planner is most of us have seen it all (no, really, we have seen some weird shit). I’ll tell ya right now, things are going to go wrong, there will be some stressful moments – some people don’t RSVP in time; things fall through at the last minute; the weather isn’t working out in your favor; all of those things can happen – but you’ll have someone on your side helping you figure it out. We will make sure everything is taken care of so that you can enjoy your day the way you always wanted to!
