Why should I hire a wedding or event planner?

Planning wedding takes an enormous amount of time. In fact, the average couple spends well over 200 hours planning their special day. A good wedding planner will save you time, money and energy by researching vendors, taking care of the many details, and coming up with various creative ideas to make your perfect day a reality. In planning any other event, the facts still remain true, you want to save time, money and energy

My venue has a coordinator. Do I still need a Planner or Day Of Coordinator?

Most venue coordinators do not actually coordinate weddings. What they do is such a great job at managing the venue, keep the kitchen operating at full capacity, and prevent any rule breaking. And, if you’re lucky, they might also help with overall setup and decor. What they generally don’t do is answer all the miscellaneous questions that pop up throughout the day.

When and where will the flowers be delivered?
Who will arrange the table settings?
Who will hit “play” on the iPod for our processional?
What about the recessional?
Where should the families go for formal pictures?
And what time should they arrive?
What time should the DJ announce dinner after the cocktail party?
Who’s going to release tables for dinner?
