Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

This seems to be the question that many newly engaged couples are asking themselves. Should we do it on our own? Or should we hire a wedding planner?


Wedding Planners wear many hats. All in one day, we can act as your advocate, your confidant, your friend, and your advisor. We're there to help you make decisions, provide you with creative ideas, assist you in finding your perfect vendors, and guide you through the process of planning your perfect event. With that, here are the top 5 reasons to hire a wedding planner:


1. Budget management.

Planning a wedding is one of the most fun and exciting activities that newly engaged couples can do together. One thing that can get in the way of that? Money. Brides and grooms each have ideas and aspects of their big day that are the most important to them, and arguing over which aspects to spend the most money on can cause a rift in relationships and endless stress. Wedding planners can assist in managing expectations and sticking with the budget. We have the know all about industry costs and can recommend a variety of vendors that will provide exactly what you're looking for at a price that fits within your budget.


2. Creative insights and design help.

You can rest assured that if you hire a wedding planner, you'll have a creative force on your team. Wedding planners spend a lot of time exploring wedding trends and keeping up to date on what's popular. Maybe you've got a vision board with images from your favorite Pinterest worthy weddings, but you're not sure how to translate that to real life? Your wedding planner can help you incorporate those ideas into your event and add some personal touches.


3. Built in mediator.

Let's face it; decisions are difficult. Along with event planning come many decisions that have to be made. It's rare that the decision making is left up to just one wedding party member, as well. It could be a disagreement on the linen color to a budget related dispute. No matter the issue, you can always turn to the wedding planner to help mediate. Your wedding planner is a trusted, 3rd party participant who has your best interest at heart and will convey your wishes and desires in a neutral space.


4. Time

Between a full time job and other commitments, who has time to plan a wedding? Your wedding planner! No need to worry about rushing out on your lunch break to sign a florist contract or needing to take a day off to inspect a venue. You can trust your wedding planner to complete these tasks for you and keep an open line of communication to ensure you don't feel left out.


5. Stress free planning.

Planning an event and balancing responsibilities can be tough. With a wedding planner, you'll get to enjoy all the best parts without the extra stress. Wedding planners have experience with vendor contracts, so you'll have a guide to get you through confusing clauses and red flags. Wedding planners are natural born problem solvers and will do everything that can be done to work through any issues that arise. Your wedding planner will always be there for you, and will be able to make sure your big day goes off without a hitch. You'll be able to enjoy your day and feel confident that everything will be okay.


Have we convinced you yet? Wedding and event planning can be extremely difficult and super stressful, but with a professional planner -- it doesn't have to be! #weddings #weddingplanner #eventplanner #colorado #coloradowedding
