As a Wedding Planner I have spent lots of time reading blogs and articles that give insight to the latest must haves & no-no's of weddings. While I believe that a couples wedding should be whatever they want it to be and absolutely love when a couple goes with their own ideas that are unique to them, there is wisdom and inspiration to be found in these posts.
This post is simply meant to be some food for thought because many brides know that they need to hire a caterer, a DJ, a photographer, a florist maybe even hire someone to set up a photo booth at the venue, but they don't think to hire someone to help manage all these vendors & the small details involved in planning a wedding until they are already insanely overwhelmed. If this blog helps some brides avoid getting to that point, it has served its purpose.
1. An experienced Wedding Planner has likely made some really great vendor connections throughout their time in the industry and knows vendors who will fit your budget & your style, and provide excellent service.
Most wedding planners you speak to will be thrilled to hear that the venue you selected has a coordinator onsite because they are a great asset on your wedding day and can be very helpful to a wedding planner. That being said, their purpose in your wedding planning is to represent the venue, not you. They oversee the venue staff, make sure no damage is done to the venue or their property and only assist with things related to the venue.
