I am a huge fan of wedding planners, they have made my day so much easier. In this email my friend Lauren Beamon of Elle Couture Events shares her reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
Wedding planning is not the romantic experience everyone expects it to be. There are many details to take care of finding a venue and reliable vendors.. Which that in itself might drive you crazy. On top of that.. Dealing with family, friends yourfiancé and bridal party. Weddings are a lot of work and should not be taken lightly.
Hiring a professional planner is key to having a well executed and enjoyable wedding day. A wedding planner goes beyond the call of duty he/she is your confidant, prayer warrior, shoulder to cry on, peacemaker, your planner is there for you from the start of your wedding till the end of your wedding. With you every step of the way.
Here are some of the reasons why you should hire a professional wedding planner:
Budget Management- He/she will help you formulate a realistic budget and help you stick to it.
Overall Wedding Planning: It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull a wedding together perfectly. A wedding planner has organized a wedding a hundred times, and with practice comes perfection. They know the right people to talk to, how to get the best prices, what should (and shouldn’t) be in a contract,and how to ensure that every single detail is prepared for your big day. The planner will make sure everything is planned to perfection and everyone is paid. Your planner will also make the vision of your wedding a reality. In result you can sit back and enjoy your wedding day as a couple and not stress as the planner has it covered.
Vendor & Venue Selection: Finding the perfect venue and vendors can be a daunting task. Knowing who to trust and who is right for you is one of the hardest tasks of planning a wedding. A planner can recommend vendors and venues they’ve worked with before and know how to get the best prices, and the best results. Even if the planner is required to find a new venue or vendor. They know where to look and how to find the best vendors/venues for your style and budget
