5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

If you are recently engaged, you're probably wondering whether you should hire a wedding planner, or go at it alone.  Since engagement season is in full swing, we've come up with 5 great reasons to help you make your decision. 

1.  Experience:  Planning weddings is what wedding planners do.  They have the experience to lead you in the right direction, and help you make those important decisions, whether it be related to your budget, selecting the appropriate venue, or coming up with a menu that is sure to satisfy all.

2.  Vendors:  Wedding planners have great relationships with reputable vendors which will take the guesswork out of it for you.  A planner will not only be able to recommend trustworthy vendors, but those that fit your budget too.

3.  Creativity:  You probably have your wedding colors in mind, and maybe even a theme, but a wedding planner will take your ideas to the next level, helping you to have the wedding of your dreams.  Wedding planners will share all of the latest trends, plus help the bride and groom to incorporate their personalities into the wedding design, making it a one of a kind affair.

4.  Stress:  Who needs more?  With planning a wedding, it's normal to become stressed.  It only makes sense.  You're working by day, and trying to plan an event, with hundreds of details that you have never considered before.  By hiring a planner, you can outsource those tasks that stress you, allowing you to relax and focus on other things.

5.  Day of Coordinator:  If you decide to plan your own wedding, we highly recommend that you hire a planner to coordinate during the weekend of your wedding.  The planner will normally direct your rehearsal, and supervise your ceremony and reception.  This ensures that everything goes according to plan, and the bride and groom can relax, knowing that a wedding pro is handling all of the details.    

Happy Planning!
