Before we know it, it’s going to be spring, which means wedding season! However, the focus of this post is going to be about what comes before wedding season, and that is wedding planning season. Wedding planning season is happing right now, meaning it takes place months before wedding season, obviously, right? Not always! Sometimes, wedding planners and coordinators are booked weeks before a wedding, maybe even days. This is a result of couples being skeptical about hiring one, or thinking that they don’t have the money. Today, we are going to put a stop to this misconception and explain to you why it is important to hire a wedding planner a year out, and how that will save you money.
If a wedding planner jumps in when all the vendors have already been booked, it’s not as easy to build that important connection with them. Don’t get me wrong, we are great at jumping in partway, but there is more trust when it is from the start. On top of that, as professionals, we know how to negotiate prices that will fit your budget.
We have the contacts
If a couple has a relationship with a specific vendor, that’s great, but if not, we have all the connections for you. From florists to makeup artists, we got you covered. We know your budget and we will provide you with the vendors that fit it. We don’t want you to have to cut out something in order to fit something else in when you can have it all!
Handymen (or women)
Things go wrong at a wedding, that’s just the way it is. Guests can get out of control and something could get damaged. The power can go out on the lights you spend thousands on and you’ll have no idea why. Wedding planners want everything to be perfect, so they will step in and fix it all (or prevent it from happening). We know how to deal with all situations and will save you any potential damage costs.
We tell you the truth
Wedding planners don’t want you to spend unnecessary money. Despite what you saw on TV or what a friend of a friend had at her wedding, we will tell you what’s worth it and what will work. We have seen it all. We will give you your vision without all the extra costs.
