Saying “I do” to Hiring a Wedding Planner

Saying “I do” to Hiring a Wedding Planner

Planning a wedding can be a daunting and a stressful challenge. Possessing nerves of steel along with the organizational skills and negotiation techniques of a strong business executive would come in handy. And then there’s the clock! Not every bride has the luxury of time to plan and make all of the arrangements necessary to create her dream wedding day. Even if the wedding date is a year or more away, time is always a factor. Jobs, school and lifestyle leave little time to devote to planning one of the most important days of your  life.  
Saying “I do” to Hiring a Wedding Planner
Feeling overwhelmed?

Have you started to plan your wedding alone and now feel overwhelmed? A professional Wedding Planner can take that stress away and help you from the very beginning of the planning stages. Either way, a good Wedding Planner will not “take over” your wedding.

Just make it so much easier for you to truly enjoy your special day to its fullest.

A Wedding Planner to assist you....
Bringing a Wedding Planner in to assist from the start is the right decision for most Brides. Choosing a theme and locating venues is just the beginning.
Every wedding requires booking and signing contracts with all the vendors used. Wedding Planners know hosts of vendors for all the necessary services and supplies. And most Venues require vendors to be licensed and insured.  Over the years, consultants have established working relationships with many vendors and know which are the most reliable, creative and offer the best value. A Wedding Planner can match a bride’s needs and budget to vendors that will serve them best. Your consultant can schedule your vendor appointments, remind you of them and accompany you to all of your meetings. And, your consultant can help protect you from poor service or fraud by reviewing contracts before you sign them. Consultants know the wedding industry well. They are comfortable with negotiating and  you are less likely to be duped.
What will this cost you?

A Wedding Planner’s fees depend on the services you want. You can request hourly consultations if you require only advice and referrals or just to coordinate the actual wedding day. If you hire a consultant to assist with your wedding planning from start to finish, expect to pay a fixed-rate or flat fee.

The day your calendar finally says, "Wedding Day!"

Trying to make sure everything flows on time, and doing it yourself or counting on family members will likely bring an entirely different set of challenges. Making sure everything is on schedule and everyone is in place can fray the calmest of nerves. Just getting everyone gathered together at photo time after the ceremony may produce its own mini-crisis. Having your Wedding Consultant nearby to act as a go-between with family members and vendors can be priceless.

A good Wedding Planner can be a master of coordination, peacemaking and etiquette. Compromises, conflicts and misunderstandings can be dealt with quietly by your experienced, composed Wedding Planner….

And, you, the Bride, will be spared the stress!
