We get this question all the time, and it’s a fantastic question!
In the corporate world, we would be “project managers” or even “product specialists.” Imagine that you have an enormous project before you. The project has quite a few details that need to be secured, outside vendors need to be interviewed and hired and you have a set budget that you cannot exceed. And in addition to this one project, you have loads of other projects that require attention. What would you do? You would bring in a temporary specialist.
This specialist may cost some money, but the amount of time this saves you, the level of detail they can achieve and the recommendations they can make thus make your job much easier. This specialist can find you the best vendors for your needs and budget. They can make unbiased recommendations that will elevate the project, and with careful budgetary analysis, this specialist will, in all likelihood, save you enough money overall that their own salary is completely validated.
Sounds great, right? That is what a wedding planner does.
We are specialists with regard to one type of project. For many brides, this is one of the most important projects they have ever taken on. It can be completely overwhelming to plan your own wedding when you have never planned one before, while also holding down a job, a social life and all of the other obligations that life throws at you.
By bringing in a wedding planner, you are essentially hiring an assistant to help you with this one project. Lucky for you, your assistant has handled this type of project a million times before. By hiring a wedding planner, you’ll find that over time, you feel less stressed about the planning process allowing you to focus on the excitement of your upcoming wedding. Maybe you find that you sleep a little easier knowing that someone else is 100% devoted to helping you with your wedding. And most importantly, the amount of money that a wedding planner can save you will often equal, or at least come very close, to the amount of money you spent on said planner. So why not make the investment and hire a set of helping hands?
