There is no way around it. Adding a budget line for a wedding planner or coordinator isn’t always the first thing on the minds of newly engaged couples (or couples neck-deep in the planning, for that matter.)
But wedding planners are not just for celebrities and couples who have a wedding budget the size of a mortgage. In fact, they can often help you save, by educating and connecting you with great vendors and refining your infinite wedding thoughts -- Ultimately, saving you time, sanity, and money!
On average, 50% of couples spend 10 to 20+ hours a week planning!
That's a nifty little wedding fact from Forbes Magazine.
What happened to all of your free time? … No doubt, you might be guilty of Pinterest-ing, and checking your wedding email at work. ;)
If you feel like all your extra time is consumed with prepping for the big day… If you’re stressing about how it will all come together, overwhelmed and not sure what needs to be done next, scouring the internet for vendors, or racking your brain about how the day should flow - A wedding planner or coordinator can offer their expertise and return all sorts of happiness to planning such an exciting day.
So what does a wedding planner do anyways? Well, I can tell you that a wedding planner is certainly more than a taste test buddy, a checklist maker, or someone running around for you on the big day. (Although those are some of the best parts!)
"As wedding planners, we oversee all of the events that make your day so special, so you don’t have to."
We communicate directly with your vendors, work on the flow of events with custom timelines and room layouts, and help you fulfill your perfect vision by gathering all the elements for a cohesive event.
Perhaps you have a handle on the wedding planning. --
A wedding coordinator can help you 100% enjoy the wedding day from start to finish.
A coordinator works with you and for you in the weeks before the wedding, and behind the scenes on the big day, while you’re taking in every moment of the celebration.
As coordinators we primarily assist with executing the event on-site, while as planners we contribute to the overall planning of the event from design conception to the end of the night.
A wedding planner may not be for every couple, but a day-of coordinator can field questions, direct vendors and family members, and take care of any last-minute details so you can simply enjoy the wedding day.
"In the end, weddings can certainly take a toll on your wallet, so why not invest in someone who will ensure that it has been money well spent."
