One of my biggest pieces of advice to engaged couples is to hire a wedding planner!
Even if you feel like you have the bulk of the planning taken care of yourself, having a professional wedding planner take care of day-of coordination allows everything to run so much smoother.
Leave the stress to someone else!
This is a day that you should ENJOY! It’s supposed to be the happiest day full of celebration, not worrying about the little details. Leave the leg work and preparation to an expert. Hiring a wedding planner allows you AND your families to relax, focus on each other and what matters most. There are more details and execution than many people realize that goes into making sure everything runs smoothly for a huge event. I promise a great wedding planner is worth every single penny! I recommend at least hiring a day-of coordinator should you decide you don’t want a wedding planner. They will make sure the logistics are taken care of and do all of the communication between your vendors, making sure they are on the same page.
Having a wedding planner allows me to focus on my job even more and best serve you!
When there is not a coordinator, the job falls on the photographer or other vendors. I’m able to give my full attention to taking pictures and serving my couples when there is someone there who has the day organized and set! While I’m happy to help do what I can, a wedding planner can do a MUCH better job and focus their FULL attention on a smooth wedding day!
Since they are the “go-to” person on the wedding day, should a hiccup arise, they’ve got it handled (oftentimes without you even knowing it occurred!) Vendors will communicate with your planner and not go through you, so you can enjoy sipping mimosas and laughing with your girls!
Like with all wedding vendors, you don’t want to hire just anyone. Make sure you hire an experienced, reputable professional. I have a few favorites that I LOVE working with because of how smooth they make the day for my couples and myself and what a pleasure they are to work with and be around! I’m always happy to share their information with you! Ask your friends for recommendations on who they loved, too!
Here’s to a smooth + enjoyable wedding day!
I LOVE how Wedding Planners create beautiful wedding arches, place settings, and other decor to match a couple’s style and wedding colors!
