To plan or not to plan...that is the question!!

Do you need to hire a planner? That depends... on YOU, on your available free time, stress-level, patience, creativity or lack thereof, expertise with vendor contracts, list of dependable vendors, a background in etiquette, expertise in budgeting, an overall interest, and much more. Here are some guidelines to help you decide if you should hire a planner.
You may want to hire a planner if... you don't want this to be you on your wedding day! or.......
  • You need help with organizing, coordinating and planning your overall event plan.
  • You have the vision but don’t know where to start or pull it all together.
  • You want someone else to deal with the hassles of vendor research, coordinating activities, creating timelines, hundreds of details and more.
  • You want the fun of picking all the big details but don’t have time or don’t want to do the small tedious stuff
  • You want to have an organized dream wedding day but don't have your own list of reliable vendors and resources to pull it all together.
  • Since you’ve never planned an event before you haven’t worked with an array of vendors to know their styles, prices and personalities (believe it or not personalities are almost as important as their product or pricing)
  • You and your significant other can't seem to agree on anything for your wedding.
  • You need a neutral 3rd party perspective to make the best decision to make the vision come true
  • You want some personalization but not sure how to incorporate it into the wedding.
  • Your loves and likes are unique and you need direction to pull that owl or pink or pirate fetish you have into the details of your wedding and make it flow.
  • You want something different and fabulous.
  • All you’ve seen are standard traditional weddings or over the top “Tutera” styled ones on TV. You want something in between but uniquely “you” and you don’t know what to do or where to start
  • You have little or no free time to coordinate, make phone calls, do research.
  • You are busy and stressed. Adding wedding planning will send you over the edge
  • You feel completely overwhelmed by the number of choices and decisions to make.
  • You need someone to streamline the decisions and allow you to make a better decision based on a neutral perspective
  • You're tired of buying things for the wedding here and there without an overall plan.
  • The hodge podge of items you have acquired seem like they won’t flow. You need someone to pull it all together into a cohesive plan.
  • You just don't know where to start with your wedding planning.
  • With all the areas needed to be planned you need direction and a timeline to decrease the stress of being overwhelmed
  • You have a vision and would like a planner to help you make it a reality!
Now maybe you will be able to decide whether or not you need a planner or day-of coordinator to walk beside you and allow your wedding to become one that you have dreamed of!
