If you think Wedding Planners are just for the rich and famous, think again! The evidence is quite the contrary. Wedding Planners can help keep your wedding within budget, and save you money along the way.
Wedding Planners know just which baker to go to for the most delicious frosting. They know which venues are good for rain or shine. They also know which photographer will give you the best value or the most artistic touch. Your Wedding Planner will have lots of ideas to help save you money and in many cases, they can save you 10-25% off the list price from vendors because they have an established relationship with them. These discounts would more than pay for the cost of your Wedding Planner.
Once you set a budget, it’s easy to start adding a few more decorations here and there and before you know it, you’ve spent far more than you planned. A wedding planner will help you set a budget and stick to it. She’ll be able to give you pointers on what percentage of your budget should go to each aspect of your wedding, from music, to flowers, to decorations.
You’ll be able to continue focusing on your work, your hobbies, and your family while your Wedding Planner helps keep you on schedule and on target. She’ll be able to help you with the details, adding creative touches and industry know-how along the way. And having time to yourself in the weeks leading up to your wedding is priceless!
Most Wedding Planners offer various packages suited to a variety of budgets. They will be able to create a package to cater to your specific needs, as well. Another option that most Wedding Planners offer, in addition to “flat fee” planning, is “day of” services, to help just for your wedding day. This leaves you to plan your own wedding and she will help keep the ceremony day flowing smoothly.
Most importantly, hiring a good wedding planner can save you money. Wedding planners have special relationships with vendors and can get you great deals. They can also save you stress, put out fires on your wedding day, and generally give you peace of mind. You can hire them for a day, or for the whole event. They can negotiate contracts, keep you on task, and help you know what to ask when speaking to vendors.
