5 TOP REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER
Couples today are focusing on creating a luxe, custom and memorable wedding day that truly reflects their personality. However, now more than ever, you need somebody on your side to help you navigate the uncertainty, and help you celebrate safely and beautifully. Keeping up with current restrictions is a task and pain! Having an experienced event professional dedicated to this and guiding you through your options will alleviate so much stress.
Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to collate all of your most luxurious life experiences, desires and design and share them with the people that mean the most to you. Research shows it takes on average 250 hours to research and plan a wedding; much of the stress comes from lack of time, organisation and experience. So here are five reasons, you should go ahead and hire the planner!
#1. NOTHING LESS THAN PERFECTION ON YOUR DAY.
Perhaps the most important reason. Weddings typically happen once in a lifetime. You want the day to go as perfectly as possible while you enjoy all of the fun and celebrations. It takes a lot of time and hard work to create a dream, Pinterest-inspired, wedding. We want to leave the couple to focus on what matters most and spend as much time as possible with your family and friends.
#2 ENJOY THE WEDDING DAY WITHOUT THE STRESS
At Pink Sands Events, we want to remove the stress and worry associated with ensuring your big day executes flawlessly.
Even if you end up deciding that full or partial planning services aren't for you, hiring a day-of coordinator will be one of the best decisions you ever make.
No need to have your cousins running around setting things up on the morning of, or asking them to handle critical last-minute tasks. We will speak with vendors as they arrive, keep track of the timeline, and go above and beyond to allow you both to enjoy the day fully.
#3. BUDGET MANAGEMENT
Keeping on track of your wedding budget is an essential aspect of planning your wedding. Venue fees, vendor quotes, payment schedules and cost planning can all be tricky to keep on-track. I act as your personal wedding accountant, keeping track and updating you as needed. We want you to spend smarter, save more!
#4. IDEAS AND INSPIRATION
Sometimes you may find it hard to come up with fun and unique style or theme ideas. I am here and available to help you fine-tune an aesthetic that reflects your love and personalities while providing your guests with a great experience. As your planner, I can help with brainstorming and clarify ideas.
Additionally, we may all love our family members and friends, but their opinions may sometimes cloud your judgment (and not in a good way). A wedding planner who knows your style and your ideal vision for your big day can keep that in mind and make better choices during the process. While others may have ideas, as your planner, I can provide unbiased, educated and creative feedback to ensure that we execute your vision the way you desire. Remember, it's your wedding day!
#5 CONNECTIONS WITH OTHER VENDORS
The primary function of a wedding planner is to understand your needs and vision. We are then responsible for finding the best vendors out there for you and negotiating with that vendor. We will also be on-site on your big day to ensure that contracted vendors fulfil their services promptly.
Working with a wedding planner who has these relationships already can be invaluable. We can offer additional insight and recommendations to help you choose which ones may be the right fit, and may have an easier time communicating with vendors who double as their friends.
Here's another thing... Think of how much more smoothly your wedding day will go when most of your wedding vendors have worked with each other before on numerous occasions!
