Planners can be a huge help when it comes to relieving stress on your wedding day, and the days leading up to it. Many planners have packages that range from full planning to just the day of. Maybe you need help with the entire idea of the wedding and maybe you just need someone the day of, to keep everyone on track.
Next I will highlight some reasons why it might be a great idea to have a planner.
You probably already have a busy life. Maybe you are in school, have a full time job, or maybe a family. Many couples are swamped with life. The average wedding takes over a year to plan. That can become overwhelming and the magic of it all can fade. A planner can help support you through the process and lead you in the right direction. They are great at being the middle man between you and your vendors.
Some weddings and elopements are held on family property, park property, or other areas that are not set up as a usual venue. This can cause stress due to lack of electricity available, space, permits needed, or getting vendors and guests in and out. A planner will know what to do and even likely have experience in this area. They will turn your backyard wedding into a majestic day! You could go from the DIY wedding, to the actual wedding of your dreams.
When you are working with a tight budget but you want the best vendors possible, it can be hard to know where to spend the money and where to save. A planner can help you find the perfect vendors within your budget. They likely have a list of vendors in different budget categories. They will also help you pick a wedding style that will fit in your budget too. Some planners have packages that include help with certain tasks like decorating, and invite sending.
Many coupes decide to get married in their hometown but do not live there. A planner can bridge the gap from afar. They will have local connections, know the venues that will fit your style, and be able to communicate with everyone. Many of them can help with virtual venue tours, and food testing. Local vendors will love that someone will be close enough to meet with and be the middle perosn.
Day of planning is so helpful to keep the day smooth and the couple stress free. Instead of everyone asking the couple what to do, they will go to the planner. This also relieves so much stress on your vendors. Remember that your vendors are not planners and they can’t do their jobs fully if they are having to keep the timeline flowing too. That is the planners job. They are there to keep things moving, to keep you happy, and keep the drama away!
I recommend a planner for all wedding days. They truly make the day so much better for everyone. Even if you just have one that comes the day of. Many times a planner will have the best recommendations on vendors to use for your style and venue. A team that works good together makes the best wedding day. But most of all, the planner truly is the key part to an amazing wedding day.
Ask me about who I would recommend. I have a list of great planners in my area.
