You get dressed, for a romantic date night with your special someone. You are amazed by the five star restaurant he took you to, you are having amazing conversations while savoring your food. The set up is all perfect, surrounded by candlelight, great music, great atmosphere. Your favorite classic song comes on, and before you can say anything he reaches out for your hands and asked you to dance. Having a night to remember, he whispers how perfect you are for him. In a blank of an eye, down on one knee, with a tiny blue Tiffany box, little did you know that the next question that came out of his mouth “Would you marry me?” would change your life forever.
Now, here we are! You have said yes, you celebrated, but it is time to plan. The question that everyone asks, “Why should I hire a wedding planner?”
I do not want to sound biased, because yes I am a wedding planner, and no I am not the right wedding planner for everyone, but I will give you a few reasons why you should hire one.
1) Save Time- If you own your own business, a pharmacist, a doctor, a CEO, Lawyer, etc, you know how much time is valuable. Hiring a wedding/event planner will definitely saves you time. We do all the leg work, we know the reputable vendors, we know the right venue that will match your vision, have an amazing guest experience, all while keeping track of your budget. Instead of spending countless late nights and weekends researching, interviewing vendors, you can take the precious time that you have an enjoy with your partner, while enjoying your engagement.
2) Saves you Money- We have great relationships with our vendors, and know which would be the perfect match. You might spend a fortune on something you absolutely did not need, while having a wedding planner could save you the headache of knowing where you are spending your money. Hiring a planner before choosing your venue is also a good way, they will save you time and money, by making sure you are getting a fair deal before you are signing a contract.

3) Destinations couples- If you want to have your wedding in Florida, especially here in Tampa Bay, then you need to hire professional help. You need someone to be your eyes and ears, who is making sure everything is going how they are suppose to. Sometimes, when having a destination wedding you look a lot a pictures online, but the locals are the one who truly know the area,especially when it comes to logistics, so save yourself some stress as hiring a wedding planner can be a lifesaver.
4) Your venue coordinator is not your wedding planner- When you visit a venue, they will almost always tell you that they have a “wedding planner” on staff. Let me be clear to you, they are not here to make sure all the details of your wedding are going smooth. They will not accompany you to your ceremony location and help you go down the aisle. Their main focus will always be the venue first, not you!
Before you make a decision on hiring a wedding/event planner, sit down and access your needs. If you do NOT have time to plan a wedding, you want all of your guests and family members to enjoy and cherish your special day instead of working it, reliable vendors, help figuring out budget, need help with your vision, design, then hiring a wedding planner is for you.
