Congratulations! If you are reading this you are most likely about to take on planning one of the most special days of your lifetime. There are so many details that go into planning a wedding and having a planner to work with is definitely something to consider. If you are unsure if hiring a planner is for you, here are some reasons why it just might be worth it.

We've Done this Before

As Wedding Planners, we eat, sleep, and breathe all things wedding!  Well, ok we tend not to sleep too much.  

Its what we do and what we have a passion for, so having taken part in many weddings we know what to expect behind the scenes leading up to and on the big day.

We Know Who to Call

There is a countless amount of wedding professionals out there. The number of venues, florists, photographers, DJ's, — well you get it —  can be overwhelming to research.

Being in the industry, we have worked with or connected with many of these professionals so in working with your budget and knowing your personality, we can help narrow down the search when it comes to finding the right wedding professional for you.

It's All About the Benjamins

Throwing a huge party for 200 guests isn't exactly cheap and working with a planner can actually save you money. If you have a budget in mind, your planner will keep you on track within that number and help allocate funds for each category as needed. Having created many relationships with experienced wedding pros throughout the years also allows us to negotiate with them on your behalf.

Time is Money

Hiring a wedding planner not only saves you money but can save you time and will certainly save you stress. Your planner acts as a liaison between you and all the professionals involved and can handle all the day to day items that go into planning a wedding. Wait, does that mean I won't be a part of my wedding planning process?! No! Not at all, what that means is you get to do all the FUN stuff — like picking out the bridal party attire, choosing floral arrangements, and of course all of the tastings! You will certainly be involved every step of the way, your planner is there to minimize all the back and forth so you can still have a life and enjoy the months leading up to the big day.

You want to Enjoy Your Day

Let's face it, you have spent a lot of time and effort on your wedding day — so you should be able to truly enjoy it. Instead of worrying about when the limo will be arriving, you can be spending quality time with your bridal party sipping on a glass of champagne. And if an unexpected guest arrives, you won't need to worry about seating them — instead you can be enjoying cocktail hour with your guests.

This will be one of the most important and special days in your life and you should be able to savor every moment.
