Wedding planning. For some couples, just the phrase can stir up feelings of dread while others look forward to the process. No matter which side of the coin you’re on, many a couple has found the answer to navigating through the process: a wedding planner. Obviously, it’s up to you to decide whether a wedding planner is right for you, but there’s no denying that a wedding planner brings three clear advantages to the wedding planning process.
Expertise & Connections
No matter how much you know about wedding planning, there is no doubt that there is a level of expertise that a wedding planning brings to the table. If you want a wedding planner that is intimately familiar with local vendors and your venue, consider hiring a wedding planner at your venue. From tying all the details together to knowing just the right vendor that fits the budget, a wedding planner has the expertise and connections that make your vision a reality—or make your big day better than you ever imagined.
If you’re a couple strapped for time, a wedding planner is the answer to your quandary. Planning your special day takes time (a lot of time). A wedding planner can check items off of your wedding checklist with as little—or as much input—as you can give. If just the thought of relinquishing control of the day you’ve dreamed of for years gives you hives, remember that wedding planners can manage as many details as you request in the way you request. Hiring a wedding planner doesn’t mean you have to hand over every detail of your big day; to the contrary, it gives you a partner in the process who can do the legwork and give input.
Wedding planners are a constant throughout the wedding process and on your wedding day. Working with a wedding planner gives you one person to contact from the beginning of your wedding planning until you’ve collapsed at the end of your wedding day (and even after). That means that if you encounter any issues at any time—even on your wedding day—you have a wedding planner familiar with every detail and vendor and can troubleshoot (and, if you book a wedding planner at your venue, knows your location intimately).
