Why Do I Need A Wedding Planner?

Many couples considering hiring a wedding planner often think it a “luxury” line item in their budget. Wedding Planner extraordinaire, Mindy Weiss, writes in her latest book 'The Wedding Book' that “although a planner represents a significant cost, she can frequently find you better deals than you could get on your own and can come up with creative ways to allow you to get your dream wedding within your budget. In addition to that, you will get better service. As a wedding client, you are a one-shot deal, but a wedding planner is a repeat customer, so vendors have an incentive to do a better job for her. They often throw in some nice extras and work harder for you.”

Why Do I Need A Wedding Planner On My Wedding Day?

Your loved ones all deserve to play a special part in your wedding. In order for them to be able to fully enjoy this special day with you, they shouldn't need to worry about decorating the table, having the cake arrive on time, or setting out place cards. By hiring a Wedding Planner, you can relax, enjoy the moment, and not have to worry about “what’s next”.

Why Should I Hire A Wedding Planner Before Booking A Venue?

Your venue, food and beverage will be the most significant cost of your wedding. Oftentimes, a Wedding Planner can negotiate fees, and can help guide you to a venue that won’t end up breaking the bank in the end. Just because the facility rental fee is low, don’t overlook hidden charges that may arise later once you start putting together your banquet event order. Finally, a qualified Wedding Planner will have visited many venues that you have never heard of, but are the perfect location for your event.

Do you have a preferred vendor list that you use?

Part of my job as a Wedding Planner is to be an invaluable resource to my clients. What that means is that I spend a great deal of time researching and networking with all types of vendors in the industry. I have an encyclopedia of vendors that I know will give a stellar performance and that I enjoy working with, which can also enhance the overall mechanics of your wedding day. I have a wide range of vendors, allowing for all personalities, styles and budgets. I do not require that my clients work with a specific vendor in any category.

Why should I hire you over Wedding Planner Sally?

I am a firm believer that you should interview a couple of Wedding Planners before making your final decision. The process of planning your wedding should be enjoyable, stress-free, efficient, and most of all, fun! The person you hire to take this journey with you should be the one you feel the most comfortable with – personally and professionally. After all, this person is going to share and experience some of the most exciting and memorable times of your life!
