Why Hire a Wedding Planner

Award Winning Event and Wedding Planner Nicole Arend is sharing her wedding knowledge and expertise with us, and this month she is sharing why you should hire a wedding planner for your big day.

When it comes to the wedding planning process, there are two different types of brides. The one who knows right away she needs help. And the other is the bride who thinks she can do it on her own.

If you really sit down and think about how much time and money is spent is on a wedding, planning can become a full time job!

It is a wedding planners’ responsibility to build relationships with other wedding vendors. Other wedding professionals understand the importance of hiring a wedding planner and in return like to pass along discounts, because they know having a planner on the day of the wedding will make the wedding that much more enjoyable!

  • Wedding Planners are there to negotiate exactly what you want for the best deal possible while maintaining the best quality of the service or product.
  • Wedding Planners are there to keep you on track and prevent overspending. They will prioritize the wedding details so you can get everything you want without going over budget.
  • Wedding Planners will also save you time. They will do all of the calling, setting up appointments, research for the perfect venue and vendors that fit in your budget and design ideas. They will create planning checklists to keep you calm and organized.

Even so, full wedding planning may not be practical or even possible for everyone. Maybe you have event experience yourself, your fiancee is a whiz with spreadsheets or your budget wont allow it. If a couple has already booked their major vendors and only decides to consult a planner mid-way through the process, most planners offer partial or customized packages that can fit your needs.

Most planners offer free consultations, its worth meeting with one or two to see how they can help ease the wedding planning process!
