When hosting your own wedding, it’s typically your first time putting together an event of such grandeur, where you’re both managing and are the key decision-maker on every aspect: budget, decor, timing, all the things! While this may naturally feel like an exciting feat, (finally you get to decide the menu!), there are tons of new decisions to make you probably don’t have experience with.
To be able to manage the budget, vendors, and execute your vision perfectly, recruiting professional help only makes your life easier! Why do you need a wedding planner in Lancaster? Let us walk you through all the reasons to hire and ways to benefit from working with a professional wedding planner.
Help You Make Money-Saving Decisions
Your wedding planner can review your contracts with your event vendors, helping you make decisions for your event space like the actual quantity of items needed to execute your vision. While 20 uplights may sound like the perfect amount to dramatically light up your space, they know that 10 uplights will give you the color wash you need, saving you half the price.
Local planners are also most likely familiar with various Pennsylvania vendor’s pricing to know where you can find better quality products, rentals, or services for similar or less costs. This can also save you time as they know when your price is fair for the quality of service and it’s not worth spending more time checking for other options.
Wedding Service Deals
Besides knowing vendors in the area that have competitive pricing outside of the vendors you may have found on your own, your wedding planner in Lancaster can also help you negotiate pricing when you’re reserving vendors to help you find the best route to reach your budget goals.
Some wedding coordinators who have been in the business for a while have built partnerships with vendors that allow their clients’ special deals or packages not known to the general public. Having someone on the inside and on your side can definitely be a bonus!
Your Cheerleader & Teammate
You can turn to your wedding planner to help clear your doubts, helping you stay calm and reassured throughout the process. Is it okay if you haven’t had a chance to send bridal shower thank you cards yet? Is it overstepping to ask your maid-of-honor about booking hairstylists for the bridesmaids? There will be a time when you just need to phone a friend for advice, and this friend happens to have dealt with mother-in-laws, unorganized event vendors, and indecisive grooms and brides to help steer you on the right path.
Your wedding planner will also hustle for you and your vision when it comes to working on every aspect of the day. All their negotiation and attention to detail is to bring your dream day to life without a hitch and as you have wished.
When the big day comes, the weight is off your shoulders! When you glance at them, their smile will only bring a sense of ease to you as you know they have everything under control and the day is going perfectly. Hallelujah!
While, yes, you deserve to have your dream day, sometimes you need someone to be real about what you’re able (or not able to) execute on your budget or at your wedding venue before you dive too deep in plans. While some wedding vendors may guarantee your dream day, your wedding planner is there to clarify and keep everyone in check asking, “at what cost”?
