You clicked on this article for one reason. To get some advice and to gain a better perspective. You are either on the fence of hiring an wedding planner, or you have hired one and think maybe you should do it on your own.
Read my thoughs and ideas. I hope this helps! Enjoy your Wedding
You don’t have to worry about where someone put Aunt Gene's hat. When the vendor realizes they forgot to bring the stage hand prop. You won’t even know about it. If there is a major catastrophe in the parking lot, no one is running to you asking where is the wedding coordinator. When the photographer starts to ask for certain family members, that have scattered to the lobby, you don’t have to move an inch to rally them back. When the candlestick fails to automatically light, you do not have to ask the best man for his lighter. I think you catch my drift.
Having an event planner
on site allows you to relax and be comfortable. Experience
Most people have one wedding. Okay in some cases maybe two or three. However, I can guarantee that as many times you walk down the isle, an event planner has done it atleast 100 times over. They have a clear understanding of what is necessary and what it takes. They are familiar with common mistakes and as aresult knows how to avoid them. They also are better equipt to prepare for the unexpected. Connections
Event planners spend their time working with venues and various vendors for a wide range of events. They have the networking capacity that takes a while todevelop. There is no comparison to the relationships they have built over time.
They are in constant contact with others that can help service your needs. Most cases, using an event planner can help you receive deep discounts you would otherwise be without. Saving Money
They are organized and attempt to avoid making costly mistakes. They tend toknow if you are being ripped off or they may know an alternative less expensive route to reach your desired outcome. Some people think that if they do it themselves, they are saving money. This can be true. But in most cases when you add up the unnecessary spending, over budgeting and lack of networking perks, you may end up spending way more. As a result the outcome of your wedding mightalso suffer as well. Applauds
Your guest will also be able to appreciate the wedding when it is planned and executed properly. We all know that someone in your wedding party, family or friends will have something to say about it. It doesnt matter how perfect the wedding turns out. That will happen regardless. However, an event planner will be ableto make sure the event goes smoothly saving you from well deserved embarrassment and criticism.
I hope this post has helped you if you were on the fence in hiring an event planner for your wedding.
Believe me. Its well worth it!!
