YOU’RE ENGAGED! Congratulations!

Let’s go back to that moment when you got engaged.  How excited were you? The feelings of butterflies came flowing in and you were on cloud nine.  You showed off your ring to everyone.  You probably couldn’t post it fast enough to all of your social media.

The reality is, most people STRESS out way too much when planning a wedding.  There are a lot of questions that you’re going to be asked.   In the end, you may be burnt out on the planning process and just want it to be over.  Why is this?   Most people get stressed out because they try to take it all on by themselves. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Enter your professional wedding planner!  Their entire goal is for you to be stress free throughout the entire process.

Let’s get some facts straight… No offense to your aunt or family friend, but unless they’ve done a ton of weddings, the process will probably become stressful for all of you.  Plus, you really don’t want to burden your family or friends with that responsibility. Even if they offer, we highly suggest against it because of the lack of experience on their part.  Wedding planning is not like planning any other event, it’s YOUR wedding and you need to leave it to the professionals to make sure everything goes off smoothly.

Wedding planners handle so many things and it’s their job to make sure your vision is executed properly.

Here’s a list of reasons why hiring a wedding planner is one of the best things you can do for your wedding.

A Wedding Planner Knows What They Are Doing…

The professional wedding planner is going to make sure everything happens just like you have visioned.  Even if problems arise, they are well trained and know how to handle it– without you even knowing that there was any sort of problem!   Ask any professional wedding planner, I bet they all have a story or two about things that could have completely messed up the day, but they found a solution without their clients even knowing there was a problem.  This is what you call peace of mind.

A Wedding Planner Knows the Best Vendors…

Believe it or not, the wedding industry is a very tight knit community.  Wedding planners work with vendors they know and trust will do an amazing job for your wedding day.  Your wedding planner isn’t going to suggest someone that they’ve had trouble with in the past.  Wedding planners have a team of go-to vendors they use on a regular basis and will point you in the right direction.

A Wedding Planner Understands Your Budget…

The wedding planner is going to go over all the numbers with you.  They will give you recommendations based upon your budget on what to spend your money on.   They know what the most important things are to book and what order that you need to do it in.  They will work with your budget and give you realistic expectations of what you can afford.

Your Wedding Vendors Will Love You…

Let’s face it, professionals love working with other professionals.  The wedding planner makes everyone’s life easier and will ensure all your vendors work together great.

Your wedding planner treats each wedding like it is their own.  They are going to get to know you throughout the process.  They want what’s best for you and they will make it fun.  Weddings are exciting and fun to be a part of.  Your dream day will be here faster than you know it and we want you to enjoy the planning process every step of the way.
