You Need A Wedding Planner!

Tips from wedding professionals on why you need a wedding planner

Posted 07.20.2017 Engagement, Wedding

My first recommendation to anyone getting married is to hire a wedding planner! Surprised? Well, let me tell you why they should be your first vendor from three professionals:

Vanessa from Little Black Book, event concierge services said it perfectly when she said, “Hiring a planner is like buying insurance.  There are no do-overs.” Couples invest time and energy on their wedding and “a great planner ensures that everything goes accordingly and that their vision is flawlessly executed.”

One of Vanessa’s most commonly asked questions is “what is traditional and what’s not?” Her advice is to do “whatever reflects you as a couple. It’s your party and celebration. Make sure it’s everything you want it to be.  Your family and friends will love it if you do.” Having that personality touch makes weddings unique!

Tiffany from Simply Breathe Events says that “hiring a wedding planner is the best way you’re going to be able to enjoy your wedding day as much as possible!” Planners work so hard behind the scenes, that you and your guests may never know if something went wrong! And that’s exactly what you want! “I don’t know how many times I’ve thought to myself, ‘What would they have done if they hadn’t hired a wedding planner?'” says Tiffany. “We’re here to make sure everything goes off without a hitch…and in the event something does go wrong, as professionals, we’re there to make sure the wedding day gets back on track.”

Some couples may read this and think, alright, I can totally do it on my own! And maybe you can, but professional wedding planners have done this dozens of time! Rachel from Plan It Perfect notes that, “trusting in a planner’s experience and contacts within the industry is invaluable.  This makes professional planners far more useful than a friend or family member who happens to be very organized.  It’s a terrible imposition to have someone you are close with handle the behind-the-scenes of a wedding.  Let them sit back and relax, and allow them to be a guest.  Leave the running around and working late at night to the professionals!”

Wedding professionals take over of coordinating all of your vendors before and during the wedding day. As a photographer, it’s so great being able to ask a planner the detailed questions about a timeline, than bothering the couple or family friend already on the dance floor. They also take such good care of us and make sure we’re fed at a time that allows us to catch all the must-have shots!

If you or someone you know is getting married, tell them to hire a planner!!! This also goes for other social events and even corporate events! Let the professionals be in charge of the details and enjoy the party!!

Thank you to Vanessa Young, Tiffany Rivera, and Rachel Hoffberger!
