You have just put down your deposit on your dream wedding venue and are excited to dive into wedding planning. However, the details continue to pile up, and you begin to feel overwhelmed. Rather than drown in wedding planning, we highly recommend hiring an event planner. Your event planner will do so much more than just plan your dream wedding, they will become your confidant and event visionary. If you are on the fence about hiring an event planner, here are some things to consider.
Event Planners Are Cost-Efficient
A little-known fact is that event planners will save you money in the long run. They are seasoned professionals and know the ins and outs of the event industry. They know where to find the best deals, what vendors to work with, how to read event contracts, and how to keep you on budget. On average, event planners pay for their services (and more) with how much money they save you.
Event Planners Offer Different Service Packages.
Event planners understand that clients will have different planning needs and offer different packages. Here is an overview of the standard event planning packages.
Event Planners Have Industry Knowledge
Event planners are seasoned professionals. They know all of the logistics involved in event planning and are pros at handling multiple moving parts. Additionally, they know how to effectively communicate with vendors to reduce ambiguity.
Your Event Will Run Effortlessly
On your wedding day, you do not want to be overwhelmed with details or concerned if everything is going according to plan. Your event planner will handle every issue that could arise, leaving you the freedom to savor your big day. An event coordinator will give you peace of mind enabling you to be more present during your wedding.
Event Planners Will Save You Time
Imagine your wedding is coming up, all of your family and friends are traveling to the event, and you are too busy with last-minute event tasks. We see this all too often. An event planner will handle all of the last-minute tasks, giving you time to spend with the people you love. Additionally, if you work with a planner throughout your entire planning process, they will save you time when selecting vendors and handling all of the event logistics.
Event Planners Will Deflect Outside Opinions
If you have an overly opinionated entourage, an event planner can help you navigate outside opinions. They work for you and will always have your best interests in mind. As much as you might want a close family member to plan your wedding, emotions can get in the way dampening the planning experience. Having a third-party planner allows you to maintain a strong relationship with close family or friends.
Destination Wedding Must Have
For a destination wedding, an event planner is essential. We recommend finding a top-rated event planner who is local to your wedding destination. The local knowledge will save you time, ensure you work with the best vendors, and they will be physically present to address any concerns. They also will know the best spots for you to host your wedding, have fantastic accommodation recommendations, and help your destination wedding feel like a vacation.
When selecting your event planner, take time to do your research to find a planner that aligns with your needs. Every event planner offers slightly different services. Spend time thinking about what level of involvement you want in planning your wedding, and be realistic about the time you have to dedicate to planning.
