The Benefits to Working with a Wedding Planner
Wedding and Event Planners have established relationships with a variety of vendors to make bringing your vision to fruition seamless. They want you to have a day you remember for its serenity and grace, not for the wrong table-scapes. Planners are also well versed in trends, new technologies and often have working relationships with local venues, giving you a leg up on amenities you haven’t thought to ask for. And they love to get creative. Use your planner to help guide you to your theme, decor and design.
More than that, no matter how meticulous you are, actions out of your control will arise. Having an event planner will reduce the stress of all involved and make your day about the best, calmest, happiest version of yourself.
We spoke with Michelle Vellon, Lead Consultant and Co-Founder of Throw the Confetti, an Annapolis based wedding planning company, to get expert insight from her years of experience. Here’s what she says:
“Often people ask us why they need a wedding planner, this is an easy question for us to answer. For most newly engaged couples they are unsure as to where to begin. And once they get started they have no idea how much everything should cost. Not to mention with so many vendor choices they are not sure how to choose the ones that are the best for them. While weddings include fun things like picking out colors, going to food tastings, selecting dresses and suits...there are also many moving parts and logistics that go into every wedding, such as the timing, best placement for the Sweetheart table, who is the best vendor choice within their budget and many, many more. That's why you have us, to help save you time, money and most importantly so you can sit back with your friends and family on your wedding day and have a fabulous time!”
Pro Tip: How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck!
Budgeting for a planner can stretch your wedding dollars, but may also save you money in the long run. As Michelle stated, Wedding Planners have a firm grasp on how much vendors should be charging you for services and can recommend a perfect fit for your budget and vision. Also, many wedding venues provide a wedding coordinator or even a team to complete your day with flair and expertise. Best of all: It can be included in your rental fee.
