So you are planning your wedding…congratulations! This is such a fun and exciting time! Wait, you aren’t having any fun? Why not? Has the stress of making decisions overwhelmed you? Are you having a hard time going through all 2,987,435,234 vendor websites to find the ones that suite you best? Are you at a loss when things should happen and where you should place your ceremony arrangements? Are you overwhelmed at the thought of your wedding day and making it all come together? Are you worried about the timing on your wedding day? Are you worried about who will setup your wedding? And clean it up?
Don’t worry, a lot of brides feel the way you do. Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful and overwhelming, after all this will be one of the best days of your life. Even if you aren’t having an extremely detailed wedding or 500 guests, having a wedding planner can ease your stress. Planners are there to execute your wedding and make it happen.
I know there are brides out there that are educated about weddings and how they should work, but there are only so many things you can find on the internet and magazines (and who are we kidding, they all say different things!). There are many things you may not be sure about such as when the first dance should happen, how to cut your cake (this is a biggie), and how to schedule events when you only have the photographer for 6 hours and you want them to do pictures before the wedding all the way through the toasts. We can help you and we want to! It is so much more helpful to have an actual person to talk to rather than trying to find something online.
Wedding planners can help you schedule meetings, select vendors, write time lines and ceremonies, plan out your budget, setup your wedding, clean up your wedding, remind you about various things during planning (getting your license, payments, meal indicator on place cards, etc.) and much, much more. A wedding planner is your manager, your confidant, your negotiator, your sounding board, your adviser and your stress reliever. We are there for YOU, not the venue, not the florist and not the videographer. We are there to help you navigate the wedding planning waters and manage your wedding day.
So, if you are ready to take the next step and reduce your stress, get in touch with us to chat about your wedding. We would love to hear from you and help you plan your wedding day!
