TOP REASONS Why You Need to Hire a Wedding Planner
GET RID OF STRESS
Being decisive in wedding planning is even more important if you have anxiety. Of course, you should always compare options and make considered decisions, but you can be stuck for weeks going around in circles and getting more stressed in the process when it comes to things like invitation wording, table plans, or menu choices. Set weekly decision-making deadlines, make a call, and move on to the next job on your list!

If you're questioning whether or not you need a planner, the answer is YES. I guarantee it will take the stress out of things while also saving you money, helped us stay on budget, and haggle with suppliers for better offers where we needed to.
YOU'LL HELP STRETCHING YOUR BUDGET
Figuring out your wedding budget can be confusing if you’ve never planned a large event. It’s difficult to nail down a dollar amount if you’re unsure how much bang you can get for your buck. Sometimes the wedding a couple want doesn’t align with what they can afford, and that’s when the trouble begins.
The truth is, stretching your wedding budget and creating a luxe for less wedding takes dedication and great attention to detail, but it can be done by choosing a wedding planner.
LEGAL ASPECT WILL BE COVERED
Feeling in love and caught up in all the romance, the legal sides of marriage are easily forgotten. However, there are some important aspects you should take note of, so here are ten things that you need to bear in mind when you marry.
1. How will it affect your children
2. Wedding venue contract
4. Prenuptial agreements
6. Changing your name
7. Giving notice or having your banns read
8. Getting married abroad
10. What it means to your will.
WEDDING PLANNERS CAN HANDLE
Wedding planners (or wedding coordinators) do it all. They’re a crucial component to a successful wedding day. Their main responsibility is to organize the details and manage the logistics. They give advice about vendors, provide industry insight, and guidance creating an experience for your guests.
My job as a wedding planner is to steward the details and logistics while couples celebrate the beauty of their marriage. I love hearing my couples say “I didn’t know you could do that!” Because the scope of what a wedding planner can do includes more than most brides think. From scheduling meetings to executing welcome bags and mediating disputes, a wedding planner provides extra hands to make everything happen.
Ceremony to Reception Flipping
If you've ever seen Father of the Bride, The Wedding Planner, or Bridal Wars, you likely imagine that you have some idea of what a wedding planner/coordinator does for their clients. But chances are, you, like many other couples out there, are a bit fuzzy on the other smaller details.
What services should you expect to receive as part of your planning or coordination package? And possibly more importantly, what shouldn't you be expecting them to do on your wedding day?
To cut through some common nuptial confusion, the Fete & Frivolity Events team has put together seven of the most common assumptions about a coordinator's role on the wedding day as well as our actual roles in each activity.
