Gotta Love It! ~10 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

One of our FAVE couples Jessica and Carlos! They did a "First Touch!"

Recently, during a consultation, a Groom-to-Be asked, "Why do we really need a wedding planner?" Love this question because the recipient of the answer usually isn't ready for all we have to say! LOL! And more often then not, we end up accidentally double-teaming the poor person. LOL!
We are SO passionate about what we do and the services we offer. 
We truly believe in wedding planning and what we represent for our couples.  
Now here are our TOP 10 Reasons for hiring a Wedding Planner/ Coordinator.

#10 ~  Confidant 
Wedding planners are talented creative resources.  We listen to your vision and help bring all the pieces together.

#9 ~ Budget Extraordinaires
Wedding planners help you create your wedding budget and help you to stay within that budget.  More importantly, we budget around your priorities.

#8 ~ BIG Idea
Wedding planners can see the entire vision and story for your wedding at times when you may be blinded by bridesmaid's drama on any given day. ;-)

#7 ~ Mediator
Wedding planners serve as many jobs while they work with you.  Shoulders to cry on, friends, sisters and sometimes even moms. We serve as a buffer in tricky relational situations. You can't make everyone happy in every situation. We sometimes tell our brides, "Just blame it on us! Tell them the planner said it." A planner is a safe neutral person to point to for direction. It’s easier to tell your future mother-in-law, “My planner thinks we need to…” instead of “I want it…"

#6 ~ Don't Fall For It!
There are MANY fabulous venues in South Florida! The GOOD venues will be honest and tell you that they do not offer detailed wedding planning services.  What most of them have is a Catering Manager under the title of Wedding Coordinator. This person is NOT the same as an independent planner. He or she is the venue’s catering manager and their job is to make sure that everything having to do with the facilities runs smoothly. While they are helpful, they do not cover the scope of what an independent planner does.

#5 ~ TRUST
Wedding Planners have a wealth of knowledge about the Wedding Industry. Including which vendors can be trusted and which have good business practices. There are so many vendors to choose from, how do you know who to trust? ~VERY IMPORTANT~

#4 ~ ENJOY!
Yes, wedding planning can be a long and tedious task. Especially for couples that are either in school, working full-time, or both.   Unfortunately, there are SO many horror stories of couples that never make it down the aisle because of the stress  that comes with the tasks and decision involved in planning a wedding.  Don't you want to have an enjoyable planning process, with help along the way! A go-to person that has your best interest at heart?

#3 ~ Timeline
We provide our clients with a detailed timeline so specific that other vendors rave about it.  At just about every wedding a DJ, or photographer, even caterer compliments us on our attention to detail.  They are even more surprised at the end of the night when they see how the timeline played itself out.  It's one of our prized possessions.  A good wedding planner loves their timeline! We live for ours! ;-)

#2 ~ Savings
Great wedding planners will save you money in one way or another. (Period.)

#1 ~ The number one reason to hire a wedding planner is: Stress Relief!
 When it comes to the day of your wedding, the most important thing is that you are able to relax and enjoy it. You want to be able to laugh, dance, and have a great time with friends and family! You are the bride. Why would you want to be the GO-TO person for all vendors, catering decisions, late draping companies, the wrong linens, and more?! Don't do it to yourself! You don’t want to end up being the point person for issues and questions that will inevitably arise. And yes, issues arise! 

Love and Celebrations! ~ LLE
