Why Hire A Wedding Coordinator? 1000 667 DUANE

When you imagine your wedding day, what comes to mind? The answer to this question can vary significantly from person to person, but it nearly always requires extensive planning, budgeting, and preparing. Choosing the colors, making the guest list, deciding who will be in the wedding party, and setting a date are only the preliminary steps in a long list of things to do. The further in advance that you start planning, the more likely it is that you will be able to pull off your dream wedding. Even when you have friends and family helping you plan and prepare for your wedding, the whole process can be time consuming and stressful.

Whether your wedding is only a few months away, or over a year away, one of the most wonderful wedding gifts that you can give to yourself is to hire a wedding coordinator. By hiring a professional wedding planner, you can focus on the most important decisions while they take care of all of the nitty gritty details. While there are many benefits to employing a wedding coordinator, there are three that really stand out.

  • Saving money
  • Saving time
  • Peace of mind

Saving Money

In the past, many people thought that hiring a wedding coordinator was a luxury that was only affordable for the rich. Only a fancy, extravagant wedding required a wedding coordinator. In modern times, an increasing number of couples are hiring someone who can carry out much of the work that goes into planning a wedding. It can actually be quite affordable to hire someone who can help to make your dreams a reality.

One of the ways that wedding planners can help you save money is that they have working relationships with vendors, caterers, photographers, DJs and other businesses that specialize in everything from wedding announcements to wedding favors. By using companies that they know and have worked with in the past, they can actually save up to 10 or even 20% off of standard prices. Because they have connections in the industry, they know where to go for the best service and they can help you get discounts on many of the things that you need for your wedding. What’s more, wedding planners work full time comparing prices and options so they know that they are recommending the best.

Saving Time

Planning a wedding can be extremely time consuming, especially when you are doing everything yourself. When you work with a wedding coordinator, you can be as involved as your schedule permits. If you enjoy working on do-it-yourself projects like centerpieces and other decorations, you can work on those things while your wedding planner spends time arranging other facets of the wedding. If you prefer to give a few specific guidelines and have the wedding coordinator figure out the details, that is also a great option.

Interviewing different vendors, setting up tastings and appointments, and doing all of the legwork for a wedding can be extremely time consuming. An events specialist will do all of this work for you, so that you only have to be present for the most important meetings and decisions. He or she will be able to refer you to a reputable catering company that has a great deal of wedding experience and can be a liaison for scheduling and negotiating prices.

When you hire a professional to plan your wedding, you can plan on setting a schedule for the entire planning process. You may meet with him or her once a week, exchange emails daily, or employ other strategies so that you can keep track of the progress of your wedding, without having to take on more tasks than you can handle. Employing a wedding planner takes over many of the mundane and time consuming tasks leading up to the wedding so that you can enjoy your engagement.

Peace of Mind

The wedding day is one of the most important events in any relationship. By hiring a wedding coordinator, you can know that all of the important details of your wedding day will be taken care of. The wedding planner works behind the scenes to organize and direct the entire occasion. They take time to listen to your hopes and dreams for the day and work to make it happen. They are responsible for ensuring that everything goes as planned, personally seeing to it that each element is correct. Not only can you count on having the day go smoothly, but you can also look forward to great food and an enjoyable day with your friends and family.

Knowing that your wedding will be taken care of allows you to step back and enjoy the whole experience. You can spend more of the time that you are engaged nurturing your relationship and less of your time stressing out about the flowers, the food, and the pictures.

By choosing a wedding coordinator that is responsible, trustworthy and resourceful, you can have a wedding that will be enjoyable and memorable while still saving time and money.
