Copy of Five Reasons You Need A Planner, Wedding People
Wedding planning (starts off) FUN! Why would anyone want to outsource such an important day? Check out the top 5 reasons below to get yourself a wedding planner ASAP!
Spend Money to Save Money:
Many times we hear, “we can’t afford a planner.” I ask, “How can you afford to NOT have a planner?” In the case of your wedding, sometimes you have to spend money to SAVE money. Best Day Ever’s goal in each wedding we plan is to pay for ourselves with the vendor savings we can offer and the helpful planning suggestions we make. In our first sit-down meeting, as a certified wedding planner, I will guide you and your partner to properly allocate your wedding budget so
that you are spending your budget logically. We determine together what is important to you as a couple and make decisions throughout the process based on that plan. At my self-proclaimed “gold-star” wedding, the savings I brought to the table covered my higher-end planning package plus saved the couple an additional $800! I can’t guarantee results just like this for every wedding, but I certainly try for every couple.Now that I own my own travel boutique I'm more prepared than EVER to save you money by offering 5-star honeymoons and get-aways for less!
Who Has Time For That?
Would you believe that the average wedding takes 250 hours or more to plan? Who has that kind of time? Today’s couples are working sometimes multiples jobs each, going to school, running a household, and raising kids. In between all
of that, you want to throw together the wedding of your dreams. While we don’t have magic wand, we can make that dream wedding come to life with a lot less hours on your part. It’s truly a case of been there, done that. At Best Day Ever, we make it a priority that our couples focus on planning their marriage while we plan the wedding. I always say, “We’ve got the first 10-12 hours covered, you focus on the first 20 years after the last dance.”
Good Cop / Bad Cop
Have you ever gotten your families together at Thanksgiving? Many people suffer anxiety by blending so many personalities just for a family dinner. Magnify that by about ten thousand percent when it comes to wedding planning. Sadly, it can be such a source of contention for many couples. At Best Day Ever, we lay the groundwork early to avoid as much of that as possible. We learn from our initial sit-down, our private questionnaires, and other interactions what is important to each player in the wedding. This includes the couple themselves, the venue, their
vendors, as well as any parents or family members that may be contributing to the wedding expenses. We have been trained how and when to offer advice that will push the pendulum one way or the other based on best practices, industry standards, and keeping an even score. We truly do not want anyone arriving on the wedding day feeling as if they haven’t been heard. This is a day to celebrate two families coming together. Let’s do it as nicely as possible.
