There are so many different opinions and misconceptions about wedding planners. Here are frequently asked questions that we thought we would answer to help you out on your journey to find the perfect wedding planner for you :)
Question #1: Why the heck should I hire a wedding planner?
Deciding to hire a wedding planner is one of the biggest decisions you can make when starting to plan your wedding. For many couples, it is definitely worth the buck! Wedding pros know the ins and outs of the industry better than anyone else. That being said, they can help you get all the details, vendors, help you save money, and most importantly, they can help you stay on your budget!
Question #2: What do wedding planners actually do?
This question is a loaded question for sure. Wedding planners focus on all the logistics of your wedding day. This means vendor referrals, making sure the vendors are where they need to be when they need to be, day-of execution, and more. The biggest thing that wedding planners do is make your life easier and take the stress off your shoulders. Some wedding planners also include designing services like us :)
Some duties that wedding planners take care of for you:
Provide vendor referrals
Create detailed timelines
Help determine and manage your budget
Oversee everything on the day of the wedding & more
Question #3: What is the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?
Since we already know what a wedding planner is and some of the things that they do, let‘s focus a little on what a wedding coordinator is. A wedding coordinator also works on the logistics of your wedding but in a way shorter time period. They usually start helping their clients about a month before their wedding. They should confirm that all vendors are where they need to be when they need to be as well as creating a day of timeline but are not involved with any of the prior planning process.
Some of the duties that wedding coordinators take care of for you:
Check in with your vendors
Meet with you about 6-8 weeks before your wedding day
Oversee everything on the day of the wedding
There are so many different types of planners and coordinators and there is no right or wrong answer. Make sure to pick a wedding planner or coordinator that suits you THE BEST.
