Hey hey everyone!
Hope you've all been doing swimmingly since we last spoke :) Today I'm SO excited to announce that as part of my commitment to helping you have the BEST, most relaxed and totally-you wedding day ever, I'll be partnering up with some of my favourite wedding vendors to chat about different elements of planning your celebration, and how they can help you along the way!
The first guest post is by Emilee, a local planner and owner of Life' Sweet Events! As a wedding coordinator and human, this gal is so amazing all around, and really has a lot of passion about what she does (which is helping couples be able to ACTUALLY experience their wedding day with no stress!)
She's going to chat with you about the benefits of having a wedding planner by your side, and answer some of your burning questions below! As a photographer, I can't tell you how truly valuable it's been to have a wedding planner there as part of my couples' wedding days. They help my couples stay relaxed, organized, and actually excited about planning their wedding! Take it away, Emilee!
BENEFITS OF HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER
Picture yourself on your wedding day, sitting in the makeup chair surrounded by your maids as your mom giggles over the sweet note your darling has just sent. As the photographer is snapping photos, you’re sipping a mimosa and enjoying this moment to the fullest.
This sense of being relaxed and experiencing all the excitement is something you’ve been waiting for since the day you said “Yes” and put that ring on your finger!
This is how our clients spend their wedding day.
How, you might ask? As a wedding planner, I take the stress, organization, and the coordination off your plate so you can be a part of your wedding day. After all, you are the couple of the hour!
So, how does a wedding planner make your day easier?
Well, it starts when you begin your wedding planning! Since we are organized people by nature, we keep our clients organized too. We keep you on a planning schedule, making decisions, and booking vendors as you go to help to create a plan that not only suits your needs but keeps you from feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
While we keep the details of your day straight, we also handle the coordination of your vendors, answering questions, and scheduling their drop offs/set ups so you don’t have to worry about the little details, which keeps your wedding day stress free.
Now you might be thinking, “while I’m drinking those mimosas and hanging with my beauty team, who will pick up the lunch trays and the bouquets? Who takes the phone calls as the vendors set up?”. You’ll be glad to know that a wedding planner and coordinator also takes care of that! We are the wedding day point of contact, and your gal the day before, too!
So, while Maddie is snapping those photos of your momma putting on your veil, you won’t have 25 notifications dinging on your phone or five people running errands!
“But how can I afford a wedding planner?”
Well, it’s fairly simple! We help you make your budget so that you can stick to it, discussing the individual day of details that are most important to you, and we help you find great vendors that fit within the budget that we’ve already created. We can also help you avoid costly last minute changes or DIYs, because you’ve planned ahead.
We offer our professional advice and experience to help you make the most of your wedding budget, and some of our clients say that we pay for ourselves in the stress we save you on your big day!
Our goal as wedding planners is to allow you to experience your day, make memories all day long, and save you money!
So. Experience your wedding!! Let your wedding planner take over the tedious details, act as your point of contact, and free you up to relax enjoy every moment.
Have fun!! After all, this is your celebration, right?
