Do I need a Wedding Planner?
The truth is, you don’t NEED one. But why spend all that money on a wedding and not have it turn out right? I mean, you spend all that time, money and energy on creating a vision, finding, negotiating and selecting appropriate vendors, determining your layout and budget, finding your dress, choosing your ideal florals, decor, photographer, and countless hours of planning. So why in your right mind would you not hedge what seems to be like the most important day of your life? A wedding planner has many duties but their overall goal is to ensure everything turns out exactly the way you envisioned it.
Wedding Planner vs. Day-of Coordinator
Before we answer that question, we need to determine what kind of bride/groom you are. Are you the type of person that gets stressed easily and needs assistance? Or are you a complete control freak and like everything done your way, without any help?
Our Full-Planning Package was created to put the complete planning and coordination of your wedding, from start to finish, in the hands of a professional planner. Plus, this service gives you the peace of mind knowing that every detail will be met so that you can relax and enjoy your day. With this package, we will help you with many tasks – from venue selection to recommending the finest vendor partners to help you execute all your wedding elements. We will walk you through the planning process and based off of your design and vision, we will connect you to solid, reliable vendors and help execute your dream wedding.
However, if you’re a bride/groom that feels you have complete confidence knowing you can plan your entire wedding (alone), we highly suggest you at least consider a wedding day coordinator! We recommend a day of coordinator (our Month of Coordination Package) for couples that have taken care of all the planning and preparation but want a wedding coordinator on the day of the wedding to make sure everything runs smoothly,…. because let’s face it, things do happen (without one).
Our Month of Coordination Package is our most popular. We usually begin 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding dissecting every wedding detail and bringing up elements and questions that you may have forgotten. We handle the creation and distribution of a detailed wedding itinerary that goes over every little detail – from delivery and logistics, to timelines and vendor specifics. We follow up with all your vendors and confirm every detail is as expected. From there we oversee any unforeseeable issues and manage your wedding day accordingly. We set up and supervise any decor items and keep everything running seamless and on schedule.

What are the Benefits of Hiring a Wedding Coordinator?
There are many benefits of hiring a wedding planner or day-of coordinator, but perhaps the biggest benefit is giving you the peace of mind that all of the details will come together as you envisioned. We don’t live in a perfect world. Things could go wrong. If a last minute hiccup occurs, would you not hope to have someone there who can recover any issues that may arise? Having a coordinator on board will allow you to enjoy your wedding day while leaving the problem solving to us – your coordinators. Trust us, alleviate the stress by hiring someone that cares just as much about your wedding as you do.
