Hiring a Wedding planner is the best way to ensure that your wedding planning and wedding day go as smoothly as possible.  Life can be busy and unpredictable, there always seems to be something that can get in the way of planning. Hiring a Wedding planner can help!  It’s a common myth that hiring a planner is an expensive luxury, when the reality is they will actually end up saving you time, and money as well as minimizes stress throughout the whole process.  After all, no one wants to stress before the happiest day of their life!

Worried about not having full control of your vision?  That won’t be an issue! Planners really take the time to listen and truly understand your wedding vision.   They are here for you and making your dreams come true! They already know the ins and outs of the wedding industry and often know most of the vendors you’ll need.  They will already know which vendors are perfect to work with that are not only reliable, but also work well with your vision. Having that resource will save you countless hours of researching.  Most weddings on average take up to 200+ hours to plan! Wedding planners will stick to your vision from the day you hire them all the way up until your wedding day.

They’re an essential asset when it comes to your wedding budget!  They will organize a realistic personalized budget for you and your needs.  With the benefit of them already knowing all the ins and outs, they will generally know what everything should cost.  They will handle and negotiate all of the contracts on your behalf; perhaps they may even get special discounts for preferred vendors!  They know special tips and tricks to help you save. For example: having your wedding on a Friday or a Sunday as well as having it on the off-season.  That alone could save you up to a few thousand, so maybe you could splurge on something else like your gorgeous wedding dress! They set aside part of your total wedding budget initially to help save from the stress of last minute surprise costs.  For example: if it were to rain, they would already have a backup plan in place so you don’t have to scramble. Wedding planners truly work magic for saving your time and money!

Having a planner to handle all of this for you will eliminate so much stress for you so you can enjoy what really matters: marrying the love of your life and spending time with friends and family!  These are just a few of the many benefits of working with a wedding planner. Why wouldn’t you work with one after reading all of this?
