12 REASONS YOU SHOULD HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER
You deserve everything to be perfect on your wedding day
It takes a lot of time, hard work and dedication to pull a wedding together and have the day executed flawlessly. Professional wedding planners have organized countless weddings; we know what works and what doesn’t. As we all know, with practice comes perfection!
Wedding planning is stressful
Wedding planning isn’t for everyone. There are so many working parts to coordinate into a single day. It can become stressful and overwhelming, especially if you have never done it before. Did you know lists Event Planners as the 5th most stressful job in the world? That is right after Police Officers!
We know whose who in the industry
Over the years we have built strong relationships with vendors and venue coordinators in the wedding industry. We know whom to trust, who to avoid and who those hidden gems are that have yet to be discovered in the wedding world.
It’s our full time job
This is our full time job and we absolutely love it! We pour our hearts and souls into each wedding we do as if it is our own. We go above and beyond for clients because we sincerely want their day to be perfect.
We have the experience and can think on our feet
A professional wedding planner knows the planning process inside and out. We know what works and what doesn’t. If something goes wrong or an emergency comes up, we have the ability to resolve the problem quickly and efficiently with a smile on our faces. Your guests will never even know there was a problem.
We know what things really cost and can save you money
Your wedding planner can save you money by helping you avoid costly mistakes. We will help you establish a realistic budget and set you up with the best vendors for your budget. We are able to help negotiate contracts and get you vendor discounts; after all we work with these vendors all the time!

We are your spokesperson with family and vendors
We are able to convey your wants and needs with vendors and family members when you simply don’t want to or can’t deal with doing it yourself. As your wedding planner we wear many different hats; a therapist, a referee, a best friend, a moderator, we are whatever you need us to be.
We take care of everything, so you can actually enjoy your day
Many brides wonder why should I hire a planner when there is a venue coordinator who will take care of the food and venue staff, a photographer who will make our shot list and a DJ who will make sure the dance floor is full? But who will make sure the décor is set up correctly, that the place cards are at the correct spots, that all the vendors are working together, that the MC knows when he is supposed to be talking and that things are happening when they should be? That is the job of your wedding planner. We are there to take care of all those annoying details (that we love), and everything in between.
Your mom & dad will be thrilled
Even though this is your big day, this is one of the most important days to your mom and dad. This is the day that makes them realize their little baby is all grown up. Having a wedding planner takes the stress and panic off your parent’s shoulders, which takes the stress off of you. After all, they want this day to be perfect for you, they might stress out about all the little details more than you will. On your wedding day they will be the ones at your wedding venue, setting things up and trying to coordinate the vendors instead of sipping champagne and getting ready for the big day!

We are there when people bail

We are the go to person for everyone on your wedding day
On your wedding day you are supposed to have fun and live in the moment, not answer questions from a million different vendors and guests.
