Many people have questions about wedding planners. Who needs a wedding planner? What do they do? That’s why I’ve spoken with Jordan Owens, a friend of mine who is an amazing wedding planner and owner of Boundless Love Events. Below she gives us her top 5 reasons why you should hire a wedding planner. Here’s what Jordan had to say:

  1. SUPPORT
    Planning a wedding can be so much fun! Choosing a dress, selecting the perfect vendor team, and taste testing delicious food are all exciting aspects of the process that most couples look forward to. Maybe you think that if you hire a wedding planner you’ll have to give that all up… but, it’s not true! When you hire a wedding planner, you aren’t outsourcing the entire planning process. A wedding planner works alongside clients to support them throughout the process.The job of a wedding planner is to handle whatever you need them! They can keep you on the right track, handle wedding day logistics, or put together the whole thing! Remember, wedding planning is a spectrum and is always tailored to your needs!
  1. STRESS-RELIEVER
    Planning a wedding can cause a tremendous amount stress on yourself. Engagement is supposed to be a time of enjoyment and preparation for your future, not just one day. A wedding planner helps create a stress-free experience for the bride and groom. Leading up to the big day, a wedding planner will ensure that all of the little details are taken care of and that there is a bullet proof plan for the big day. On your actual wedding day, the planner will take care of design set up, greeting and managing vendors, and ensuring that the day goes according to schedule. This allows everyone to be fully present instead of worrying about all the little details. After all, you’ve spent your whole life looking forward to this day, you should soak in every moment!!

  1. TIME-SAVER

Planning a wedding takes a lot of time and energy. Plus weddings usually come with many other changes as well. During this time of your life it can be hard to balance all everything because you only have but so many hours in a day. By hiring a wedding planner, they will be able to help you streamline the process through budget tracking, advice, and unbiased, professional experience. Your wedding planner will be able to take a huge load off your plate in order to create time for you to focus on the things that truly matter.

  1. SAVE MONEY

The biggest concern for not having a wedding planner is the price. Many people think that only expensive, fancy weddings need a wedding planner. Others believe that the money invested in a wedding planner could be better spent on something else. However, every wedding can benefit from a wedding planner! An expert planner can help you determine budget allocations to get the most for your money. They will also be helpful tracking the numbers and keeping up with payment schedules in order to avoid overspending and late fees. Finally, they will know what you SHOULD be paying for each expense. They won’t allow you to overpay for something that’s not necessary or suggest cheaper alternative. In the end, hiring a wedding planner can actually SAVE you money!

  1. THEY KNOW THE BEST OF THE BEST!

Your wedding planner has probably worked dozens of weddings (this year)! With all of that experience, they’ve worked with all types of vendors. For that reason, they will be able to recommend the BEST vendors for your vision and style. This can save you time searching for the perfect vendor team. Additionally, they know the quality of work that most vendors produce! They’ll be able to suggest the most high-quality professionals for the job!
