A wedding day is the most unforgettable moment in everyone’s life, which is why it’s so important to consider hiring an expert to turn your dream wedding into reality. If your wedding day vision is still unclear, a wedding planner can help you come up with ideas on what your wedding day could look like. But before you even get to that step, there are some other things to consider. As a Washington D.C. wedding planner, here are my tips for when and why you should hire a wedding planner!
Your wedding planner should be by your side throughout the entire planning process, from beginning to end. This is why getting one is important shortly after you get engaged. Think of your planner as your “wedding bestie.” You want your wedding day to go as smooth as possible, so it’s best to have someone overseeing day-of details that’s been there with you from the beginning and knows your vision.
There are so many different responsibilities that a wedding planner can take over for you if you don’t have the time or the energy. If you have specific tasks in mind that you already know you don’t want to handle, let your planner know from the beginning. Otherwise, here are a few different areas your wedding planner can help assist with.
If you work with an experienced wedding planner, they will know many different venues to recommend based on past clients. They will be sure to recommend you ones that will provide the vision you dream of!
You can use a planner’s network of industry professionals. In addition to negotiating pricing with vendors, a wedding planner will help couples avoid the costly errors that are frequently unavoidable when planning their wedding alone.
There are certain details to look for in vendor contracts. Hiring a planner can save you time and money in the long run if you don’t have a close eye.
Saving time and effort throughout the preparation stage as well as the wedding day is one of the most common reasons couples engage a wedding planner. Most couples spend 200-300 hours of their engagement planning!
Hiring a wedding coordinator is popular choice for many modern couples. Most couples don’t enjoy planning their wedding because let’s face it, it’s stressful!
