If you’re anything like me, you’re a DIY master of the highest order. There’s something in our bones that just compels us to plan and do everything ourselves. I mean, it is incredibly satisfying when you see people enjoy something that you worked hard to put together. So it’s understandable why you may be considering planning your own wedding without the help of a coordinator. But weddings are so high stake! If everything doesn’t go exactly right it can make you feel stressed and overwhelmed when you really should be sitting back and enjoying your special day! That’s where wedding planners come and save the day, but do you need a wedding planner? At Lucky Little Chapel in Las Vegas, we understand the importance of having a wedding planner coordinate your wedding so we’ll help break down why you should consider one for your wedding day.
Why Wedding Planners Are Worth Their Weight in Gold
Paying a wedding planner might seem like an expense that you can avoid if you just did the leg work yourself, but when it comes down to the cost vs reward, wedding planners are worth every penny. This is something that you may not realize immediately but once you’ve planned one large event like a wedding, it becomes apparent.
When it comes to planning weddings, coordinators are professionals that work in that capacity on a daily basis! They know how to navigate the world of event planning in a way that allows them to give you the best results.
Help Manage Your Wedding Budget
Wedding planners are real pros when it comes to managing wedding costs and budgets. They know how much you should allocate to decorations, flowers, food, and entertainment, and they also know where you can cut costs without sacrificing your dream wedding. Because they are an arms-length away from being too emotionally invested in any part of your wedding they have the clear head to walk away from vendors who want to overcharge you.
Take Advantage of Vendor Discounts
Because wedding planners deal with vendors and event venues regularly, they have leverage that you may not have when it comes to negotiating with vendors to get you the best prices and services. They have relationships in the industry that they can leverage for you in order to get you the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank.
These industry relationships that they have nurtured will allow them to get your products and services at a discounted rate because they may use the same vendors for multiple clients and they bring them repeat business.
Coordinating the Day’s Events While You Enjoy Your Wedding
The one thing that you don’t want to happen on the day of your wedding is to have to stop celebrating with your family and friends to help direct vendors and guests in order to keep the event on track. Event planners are also called Coordinators because they help coordinate everything on the day of the wedding from the ceremony to the reception and everything in between.
