Whether you’re a bride on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, or you’re an aspiring wedding planner, but you’re not sure why someone would hire you, here are five reasons why wedding planners are so valuable.
SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE SWITZERLAND
Weddings have a unique way of bringing out strong emotions in people. From family and bridal party member to the occasional vendor. Having an objective third party there to navigate possible sticky situations that may arise is invaluable. Diplomacy and tact is the name of the game for wedding planners and they will always be in your corner helping you through the planning process.
THERE NEEDS TO BE A “PLAN B” (AND C, AND D….)
No matter how perfect the planning process was, the wedding day is a whole different ball game. Emergencies happen. From no-show vendors and inclement weather to drunk uncles dancing on tables, there’s a lot that can go wrong on a wedding day. Having a seasoned professional there who can spring into action could mean the difference between disaster and dream day.
COUPLES SHOULD BE CELEBRATING, NOT STRESSING
My team’s mantra is that “we help couples plan beautiful, stress-free weddings.” From the bottom of our hearts, we truly believe that every couple, their family, their bridal party, and their friends should be free to celebrate! None of them need to be stressing over escort cards and delivery times. Each couple’s wedding day is a one-of-a-kind experience and they should be soaking it in and having fun!
MOM DESERVES TO BE MOM
A significant portion of our clients hire us specifically so their mothers can relax on the wedding day. Moms (and/or Dads) often have their hands full with out-of-town family or hostessing (hosting) duties. The last thing they need is the pressure of being the de facto wedding day coordinator. She should be free to be mom and celebrate her baby’s beautiful union.
PREFERRED VENDOR DISCOUNTS
“Weddings are super cheap.” Said no one ever. A well-connected wedding planner can usually save you money by passing along savings from their preferred vendors. With all the money they can save you, they practically pay for themselves
