Top 10 Reasons to hire a Wedding Planner or Day of Coordinator

So often we hear that Wedding Planners are for the elite, high-society couple, the “daddy’s girl” or the debutant. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While different Planners have different pricing, a great Planner will benefit your more than be a financial burden to you. Wedding Planners and even Day of Coordinators {or as we call it, Month of Coordinators}, can offer not only peace of mind, experience and endless advantageous relationships, we can often times save the couple so much money, that it exceeds or at least comes close to the cost of hiring us in the first place. I know, it sounds crazy, but with the years of experience and relationship building that any good Planner has, we get very special perks that otherwise wouldn’t be available to you. For instance, I do not accept referral fees from the vendors I work with, in turn I ask them to please take any monetary amount they would be offering me for the business, and pass that along as savings directly to my clients. Here’s how I look at it.. YOU hired ME to be your Planner, to have your best interest in mind, to always look out for you, your needs and pass along any and every “deal” I have or can get. I also feel that it offers extreme peace of mind knowing that when I refer a vendor or venue to a couple, it is because I truly feel that they are the best fit for my client and would benefit them the most, not because I’m receiving a “kickback”. As a Certified Wedding Planner, I understand the importance of honesty, transparency and trust and value my relationships with my clients and will do anything and everything to get my couples the best of the best; isn’t that one of the main reasons why you chose to hire a wedding professional to begin with?

10. SAVES TIME – Planning a wedding takes enormous amount of time. In fact, the average couple spends well over 200 hours planning their special day. A good Wedding Planner will save you time and energy by researching vendors, taking care of the many, many details, and coming up with various creative ideas to make your wedding amazing!
9. SAVES MONEY – Weddings can be extremely expensive. However, by hiring a Certified Wedding Planner, couples can save a great deal of money. That’s right, a Wedding Planner can SAVE you money! Because Wedding Planners provide so much business to vendors, they are often able to negotiate discounts for their clients. Wedding Planners are also well-versed at helping couples set budgets and encourage their couples to stick to them.
8. SAVES RELATIONSHIPS – Weddings are very stressful. This stress often results in many arguments for couples as well as with family members and friends. Wedding Planners have been there time and time again and know how to avoid such problems before they begin as well as act as a buffer when there are conflicts. Wedding Planners are also able to take on the responsibilities often assigned to loved ones so that everyone is able to enjoy the wedding. Remember, you still want a relationship with your mother well after your wedding!
7. ENSURES DREAMS ARE MADE REALITIES – Most have been dreaming of their wedding day their entire life. Wedding Planners work for the couple and ensure that all desires are met {and often surpassed}!

6. OFFERS ADVICE – Wedding Planners have planned countless weddings and know exactly what works and what doesn’t. They’re also knowledgeable on wedding etiquette. Furthermore, wedding planners are able to recommend competent vendors, based on personal experience and tell you who you should probably steer clear of.
5. ACTS AS THE “GO TO PERSON” – The average wedding has at least 22 different vendors. Combine that with the entire wedding party and all of the guests and that is a lot of people with questions and concerns! By hiring a Wedding Planner {preferably a Certified Wedding Planner}, couples can simply tell others “talk to the Wedding Planner!”
4. CREATES SCHEDULES – There are so many events leading up to the big day! Couple that with the many things that happen during the wedding and who can keep track? The Planner/Coordinator can! Certified Wedding Planners are well-versed at making detailed itineraries for everyone involved {including other vendors} and making sure that everything happens on time so you can truly get the most out of your one special day.
3. HANDLES CRISIS – Whether we like it or not, most big events involve crisis. Who really wants to deal with the bakery not delivering the cake on time or the DJ decided to no show or cancel on you hours before your wedding? No one {except your planner, that is}! Wedding planners know how to handle all unforeseen circumstances and make sure to shield you from all the stress associated with the unknown.
2. ORCHESTRATE DETAILS FROM REHEARSAL THROUGH THE END OF RECEPTION – Do you want to be responsible for organizing rehearsal or making sure the bridal party is properly lined up? How about making sure that the guest who had a little too much to drink departs safely? Wedding Planners orchestrate all the details from the rehearsal through the end of the reception, ensuring everything goes off without a hitch!
1. MINIMIZES STRESS AND MAXIMIZES FUN! –Let’s face it, wedding are expensive, wouldn’t you like to know that you are maximizing every single minute of this whirlwind day and have the opportunity to enjoy each and every detail with your friends and family without a care in the world? Hiring a Wedding Planner/Day-of Coordinator ensures that you will have a worry-free and stress-free day, thus, allowing you truly to enjoy your day as a superstar guest!
