Why hire a Wedding Planner?
Save Money - Because Wedding Planners work with vendors regularly, they are frequently able to negotiate better rates. Also, an experienced Wedding Planner knows how to establish a realistic budget and will work hard to keep you on budget without sacrificing your vision and quality of service.
Reduce Stress - When you first begin planning your wedding, it’s an exciting novelty that soon loses its appeal. An average wedding has at least 22 vendors, and numerous well-meaning family members who want to be involved in the decision making process. A WP allows you to enjoy the fun part of planning a wedding without the stress of handling the many details involved.
Save Time - There are hundreds of magazines, websites, books and blogs about weddings. It can be overwhelming to research every detail. Working with a WP can save time and energy taking care of the many, many details involved in a wedding, as well as offer unique ideas that you may not have thought of including in your special day.
Peace of Mind - When the big day finally arrives, you, your fiance, family and friends can relax and enjoy the festivities because your WP is going to handle making sure that the rehearsal goes smoothly, schedules have been passed out, vendors have been confirmed, and will resolve any unforeseen crisis that may arise.
DESTINATION WEDDING PLANNING
Destinations are becoming increasingly more popular for many reasons, below are just a few:
It is usually less expensive to have a destination wedding. The number of guests that attend is most often less than would attend if held in home home city.
You will be able to spend more quality time with your family and friends. Instead of spending all of the time leading up to the wedding preparing, during the reception trying to greet each guest, and after the wedding preparing to leave for the honey-moon, you will be able to relax and enjoy your time with family and close friends.
Frequently family and close friends are spread outside the bride and groom’s home city and must travel anyway, so a destination wedding allows guests to enjoy a trip that is more of a vacation. Also, the more rooms, airfare and excursions that are booked, the better the deal on rates that can be made.
It is even more important to hire a local Wedding Planner if you are planning a destination wedding, because they will know the local venues, vendors and peak/off peak seasons. Since you won’t be able to personally check on all of the details, so when you arrive, you won’t spend the time leading up to your wedding chasing down vendors and finalizing details.
