One of the most common questions we receive from clients is, "Why do we need to hire an event planner?"
The truth is, the moment you decide to say "yes" starts the beginning of a typical 10-14 month planning process, that can not only be stressful, but can also take away from your whole wedding experience if things do not go according to plan.
As a client once said, event planners are “an insurance to making sure my day run smoothly so I can actually enjoy the moment.” In order to make the planning process run smoothly, we work with a variety of vendors (cake shops, bridal boutiques, florists, bands and/or DJs) who are trustworthy and will provide excellent service to you on your big day.
If you're still on the fence about hiring an Event Planner, check out these six reasons why you should!
Organization: From contracts to last minute cancellations, event planners keep track of and manage everything. The best wedding planners have timelines and checklists that keep a detailed process for planning the event in the months and days leading up to it and the day of. A good wedding planner is able to see all the little details and make sure nothing is forgotten on your big day!
Experience: Most clients find their wedding planners through recommendations from friends and family members or through an internet search. It is important to find a planner who has excellent event planning skills, experience, and a personal commitment to your event. Experienced event planners will know how to work within your budget and help you put together the dream wedding you've always wanted.
Personalization: Every wedding will be different and most planners will cater to their clients' specific needs, this includes starting the planning process with you from the very beginning or just being there to help out on the day of your event. Of course, this day is about you, but you need to think about how your guests will leave your wedding and how you want them to share that day with you. Little details like this are the key to creating any wedding vision.
Vendor Options: An event planner knows which vendors are best for your vision and which ones will work within your budget. Plus, they can usually act as a liaison between the couple and various vendors, suggesting what should and shouldn’t be in contracts and looking them over to ensure nothing gets missed.
#WeGetHitched: These days everyone is looking for ways to share the big news and get their family and friends just as excited as they are for their wedding. From creating a website, to coming up with a unique hashtag to use on the day of, an event planner will help you build all of these outlets and help make them available to family and friends.
Time Saving: An event planner can help guide the process in the right direction. Assisting in the decision making allows for extra personalization with your floor plans, menu options, centerpieces, bridal suite set-up, lighting and any other visual details to reflect your personal touch and vision.
