Why Hiring a Planner Is Essential for Your Wedding Day

Planning a wedding can be exciting…or extremely stressful. Let’s talk about some of the advantages of hiring a wedding planner for your big day!

1. They are knowledgeable about trends, vendors, floral arrangements, and more!

Planners are essential if you’re putting together a wedding in a city where you don’t reside. But even if you’re planning a local wedding, planners are still very helpful because they’ve typically worked with many of the venues and vendors in town.

(Speaking of trends, read all about my tips for breaking the comparison cycle when it comes to social media wedding trends!)

2. Your wedding planner will manage all of the small details!


Especially if you haven’t ever planned a wedding before, there are so many details you wouldn’t even think about. Your planner has experience, knows the questions to ask, and knows how to make your wedding day go smoothly.

3. Wedding planners can make the MOST of your budget!

Whether your budget is $5,000 or $20,000, your wedding planner can ensure you are allocating your budget as efficiently as possible. If the venue and food is more important than your floral arrangements, they can support your goals and ensure your day is exactly how you envisioned!
