1. It saves you time!
A wedding coordinator has a lot of connections and insights that will save you from doing all the research yourself. They can also warn you against making bad vendor or venue choices because they’re coming from a place of “been there, done that”. Just like you might hire a real estate agent to help you look for houses, a wedding planner can help you find venues and vendors that fit the bill of your budget and specific criteria with less DIY-ing.
Many people think hiring a planner is a needless luxury, but it actually saves you a lot of time and stress if you are not an organized person, or you are a very busy person. Hiring a planner doesn’t mean you don’t make any decisions yourself, it just means you have someone helping you guide and take care of the process with you.
If you’re willing to shell out the big bucks for a nice dress or photographer… A planner is also worth it.
2. You can save yourself from hiring unreliable vendors and making expensive mistakes, which ultimately provides you peace-of-mind.
Ever heard of those wedding horror stories when vendors ghost on clients and run with their money? We can promise the vendors we recommend will never do that to you, but we can’t promise that if you use vendors that are unreliable. Therefore, having a planner can be useful because you get a professional’s opinion.
