10. Weddings are Stressful and Frustrating! 

A Wedding Planner’s main job is to make the process as stress free as possible.  Wedding Planners are expert consultants that are dedicated and well informed of countless aspects concerning the wedding business – what to do, what not to do, and how to overcome wedding day “bloopers and blunders”.  Additionally, Wedding Planners help to organize and orchestrate your event and make it as seamless as possible. 

9. You have a lot to do, and no time to do it!

The Wedding Planner regularly attends seminars and continues their education in wedding etiquette, concepts, traditions, and design.  Whereas, many couples are busy with work, home, and sometimes children, and really do not have the extra time to spend planning a wedding.  A Wedding Planner save you time!  It takes approximately 200 hours to plan a wedding from beginning to end.  How many free hours do you have?

8. You really want to impress your guest with an event to remember, but don’t have a clue of where to start!

Wedding Planners have relationships established with various vendors in the bridal industry.  As a result, Wedding Planners are attentive to your needs and the vendors that are best suited to handle them.  A Wedding Planner will put in the time and effort to meet with those vendors and advocate on your behalf so you don’t have to.     

7.  You don’t want your dream wedding featured on YouTube because it’s a HOT MESS!

Let’s face it, we are in age where technology rules!  Everyone is on YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, and a host of other social media sites.  A Wedding Planner has experience in handling emergency situations such as wardrobe malfunctions, emergency lighting, missing vendors, and people who don’t RSVP, just to name a few.  Wedding Planners ensures a smooth flowing event that the couple and their guest will remember.  Without a Wedding Planner, you really don’t know what you may end up with.  It takes less than 10 seconds to upload a video to You Tube, would you want your wedding broadcasted as the World’s Worst Wedding?

6.  You can’t afford not to have a Wedding Planner!

Money is tight and the economy is struggling.  You feel that you can’t afford a Wedding Planner, but you can’t afford not to have one!  Wedding Planners save you MONEY!  Wedding Planners will negotiate contracts and help you establish and implement a budget for your event that is not only achievable, but also maintainable.  Often, couples think that they are saving money by not hiring a Wedding Planner.  But, in reality, you are throwing money out of the window by not having one.  Do you think you could really not afford to not have a Wedding planner?

5.  You are the Maid of Honor and your best friend is “Bridezilla”.

Frequently, Wedding Planners saves friendships and relationships by being a spokes person and a mediator.  Without a Wedding Planner, the bride can become bombarded and may turn into someone you don’t even recognize.  Wedding Planners keeps the bride from having to say “I am sorry for acting like a witch!”
