1. They’ll help bring your wedding vision to life
You have figured out your theme, color palette, and decor style you are going for–but now you don’t know how to execute it and make it all come together. That’s where a wedding planner comes in to help! They’ll know exactly where to rent the linen and chairs, know the best person for your stationery (think menus & table numbers) or know the best florists for the reception tables arrangements.
2. They help with your budget
A planner will help you with vendor discounts, rentals, purchases, and negotiations. So while it may seem like a big part of your budget is for the planner alone, they can end up saving you money at the end of the day!
3. They take on responsibilities so you don’t have to do it all
Wedding planning can definetly be stressful. There’s so much that goes into creating the perfect day, that many couples forget to enjoy the time being engaged. When you hire a planner for full service – they are there to take most of the responsibilities off of your plate, so you can enjoy this time and feel supported. If you’ve seen a wedding planning checklist, then you know that you need to book certain vendors by a certain date, and take care of a lot of other “to-dos”. Planners will keep you on schedule, ensuring everything on your to-do list gets done when it should so you don’t fall behind.
4. They know the best vendors to work with
As a wedding planner, their job is to communicate with florists, caterers, DJs, photographers, videographers, etc. They can help match you up with the perfect vendors for your celebration – ones they know and trust, and that will fit well with your general vibe, budget, etc.
5. You’ll have day-of coordination
Probably one of the most important reasons to hire a wedding planner is that they will be there on the wedding day to ensure that all goes smoothly. Your job on your wedding day is to relax, try to take it all in and focus on marrying the love of your life. Everything else is up to the planner – like overseeing the timeline and the set up of the venue, managing all vendors and setting up decor.
