Benefits of a Planner
As a wedding planner I highly recommend choosing a planning package to assist you with planning your big day. We can provide help for your wedding day in a way that no one else can. We also give your photographer the opportunity to solely focus on taking beautiful photos while we keep the timeline going throughout the day! There are typically many different types of services that we as planners offer, so here are a few things to consider for different aspects of planning:
As planners we offer the option of helping you with "vendor match-making". We will sit down with you and ask you what you're looking for in your different vendors, and offer the best suggestions within your budget. The amount of money you save doing this by knowing where to invest more and finding vendors that are the perfect fit saves you more than what you pay! Plus you'll have a dream team that will be amazing for your wedding!
In addition to planning, we offer day-of styling services. This means we will be in charge of setting up your spaces and the design. We'll add a beautiful, creative touch and since we've worked alongside you up to your wedding day, we can carry out your vision perfectly. This also means mom wont be running around trying to set everything up! We have you covered!
BENEFITS OF A DAY-OF COORDINATOR
If nothing else, this is the BEST thing you can do for your wedding in this area! It is so crucial to have a go-to person the day of that can take care of the logistics and answer questions. Otherwise, this burden typically falls on your mom, maid of honor, or photographer. We are there to run the day and make sure everything goes smoothly. This also includes planning the month before your wedding. Once that one mark hits, we will take over and conquer the last minute details for you. What a stress reliver!
If you want wedding planning to be as stress-free as possible, this is the route to go! We will be there from your engagement all they way until the end of your wedding day. We are there to take care of all the planning for you, so you can relax and enjoy being engaged. We work alongside you to create the perfect vision for your wedding day., help you choose vendors, create your timeline, work out the logistics, and everything else that goes into planning. We basically become your best friend during the process because just about everything is off your plate!
My biggest piece of advise in this area is to at the very least have a go-to person, ideally a day-of coordinator. If you don't have one appointed person, those responsibilities are going to fall on someone else (usually your mom, maid of honor or photographer). Whoever ends up taking over those logistical things that pop up the day-of, they wont be able to enjoy the day or focus solely on their job. Sometimes your venue will provide a day-of coordinator, but make sure they will be there the whole day and are there to actively help! Sometimes they're there just to oversee things and not help with the things that need to happen the day-of. If you're okay with this go-to person being a family member, then go for it! But realize that they aren't going to be able to enjoy your day, so you'll have to be okay with that. Bringing someone else in isn't as much as you'd think, and it takes so much stress off everyone! They can also be a really good middle man when sticky situations come up throughout the wedding day. Trust me, you won't regret it!
