Why Hire A Wedding Planner?

A bouquet of roses, hundreds of candles, a flowing designer white dress are all elements of the perfect wedding day that most brides-to-be have been dreaming of their entire lives. From the first game of “dress-up” and “wedding day” little girls begin dreaming of their fairy tale wedding.  Years later, these same little girls are all grown up, have found their Prince Charming and are ready to begin planning their special day.

For some, wedding details like: the dress, the cake, the bridesmaids, the invitations, the favours, and the honeymoon are simple subjects to address when the time comes to begin planning the big day. However, for many the mere thought of it all becomes too much too handle. It can take, on average, over 250 hours to plan a wedding! Most couples find themselves over their heads as soon as the planning starts – drowning in questions like, “What is the difference between tulle and chiffon? Butter cream or fondant? DJ or live band? Where do we start?”

The best place to start is to consult with a professional wedding planning service. Not only will this save time, money and unnecessary stress – it will allow the couple (and their family and friends) to enjoy the planning process and cherish every moment of the big day.

There is a huge misconception that wedding planners are only for the rich and famous. In fact, 80% of engaged couples in the US hire a planner for four main reasons:

  1. They are too busy/overwhelmed to properly plan their wedding
  2. They are planning their wedding from a distance
  3. They want their wedding to be planned to perfection by a professional
  4. They would prefer to take pleasure in their Wedding Day, not work through it

A Bride and Groom will greatly reduce their stress by hiring a planner who will organize and implement the various tasks involved in a wedding. They will benefit from their planner’s previous experience, creative suggestions, guidance, knowledge, and vendor connections. Most of all, they will be able to relax and enjoy their special day knowing that any problems or emergencies that may arise are in the hands of a professional.
