10 Things We Love About Wedding Planners
Ready to get down to the nitty-gritty of wedding planning? Whether you already know every detail of your dream wedding or you are terrified at the idea of even looking at a seating chart, you might need a wedding planner! These priceless wedding gurus have seen more than a few aisles and hiring one is more practical- and affordable!- than you might think. Here are the ten things that we love the most about wedding planners.
They are etiquette pros
An experienced wedding planner has seen it all. Whether you need to determine your stepdad’s role in the wedding or figure out where to seat your aunt’s third ex-husband, they can help you figure it out!
They can save you money
It might seem counterintuitive but hiring a wedding planner can actually save you money. An established planner will already good relationships with vendors and know exactly where to find the best details. Most wedding planners will ask you for your budget right up front so they can make sure that everything, including their services, fits in so you can forget about going overbudget.
They keep it running like clockwork
Do you know how long it’s going to take 250 people to finish eating the second course? Your wedding planner does and he can make sure that everything moves along flawlessly down to the minute.
They do what you can’t
Having a full-time job isn’t exactly conducive to planning a wedding. Want to order your cake from that legendary bakery that closes at 4 pm? Send your planner!
They are hip locals
A wedding planner is especially helpful if you are having a destination wedding or even just travelling to get back to your hometown. It’s far better to have someone there on the ground than to rely on the emails and calls for every aspect.
They let you focus what’s important
Being engaged should be one of the happiest times in your life. Try spending a few extra hours cuddled up with your fiance while your planner pours over seat arrangements.
They know where to splurge
Very few people can afford every little detail that they want for their wedding. A good wedding planner can take the details of your dream wedding and translate them into an affordable plan. She will know what is worth splurging on and where you can save a few dollars.
They are amazing go-to people
The closer that it gets to the big day, the more phone calls there will be to take. Let your wedding planner’s number go out to the caterers and florists. He can take care of the last minute details while you focus on big-picture planning.
They keep drama at bay
Your wedding really should be your big day. Let your wedding planner push any hiccups under the rug while you dance the night away.
They keep you sane
Remember the last time you decided to cut your own hair? Sometimes enlisting a professional from day one can save you a lot of time, energy, and money!
