Why Hire A Wedding Planner??

Today I am featuring an article from Jennifer Grove with Sky Blue Events explaining the importance of hiring a wedding planner for your big day. Hope this information is useful in your planning process. Happy Planning!

Planning your wedding should be a joyful journey from the day you pick up a bridal magazine to leaving for your honeymoon. Most brides find that along the way they will need some help whether it's selecting their dress or their invitations, picking the right location or picking table linen colors. Getting started with the assistance of a qualified consultant is one way to make sure your wedding dreams become a reality from the very beginning of the process. A professional planner knows the wedding market inside and out, has worked with a variety of local vendors and venues and will know how to maximize your budget to help lead the way on your journey to the altar. These reasons alone will help reduce stress, save time and make the experience more enjoyable.

Additionally, many planners have built their reputations and businesses by catering to select niches that couples may find important to them from green/environmentally friendly weddings to budget-conscious weddings to destination weddings. For example, as a full-service planning company specializing in the style aspect of a bride and groom's event, our company is known for translating a couple's personal tastes and likes into a cohesive, stylized vision. Not only do we create detailed color palettes and gorgeous inspiration boards for our clients to tie every element of the event together, we'll manage the timelines, budgets, milestones, and to-do lists in order to make sure every detail is attended to in executing the overall designed vision.

We ask our prospective clients two key questions that will determine if our services will help them better enjoy the planning journey. First, how much time do they have to spend planning in between their job, tending to their relationships (fiance, friends, family) and daily life during their engagement period. Second, we ask clients how important the style factor and how elaborate their expectations are for their event. From creating a master plan and touring the most original locations to finding the best floral designers and caterers, our insight and experience will be an invaluable part of the planning process which make sense for busy, career-oriented couples who may not have the time or style expertise to do this on their own.

Does every bride need a wedding planner? I like to think that making the choice to hire an experienced consultant is one of the best decisions you can make. In addition to being party experts, wedding consultants are part orchestra conductors, part financial planners, part designers and part relationship experts. Having someone supporting you with answers to tricky etiquette questions, negotiating contracts on your behalf and serving as your spokesperson for the entire experience is worth the end result : your beautiful wedding dreams come true.
