If you’re a go-getter, host extraordinaire, and party planning perfectionist, planning your own wedding might sound right up your alley! But before you begin tackling this event on your own, it’s smart to consider if you need to hire a wedding planner in Milwaukee. Knowing everything a wedding planning professional can provide you, might make you feel more comfortable in planning with your partner only, or heading straight in to see a professional wedding planner for a consultation to gain advice, local Milwaukee event knowledge.
Why You Need a Wedding Planner In Milwaukee
Start here, with all the reasons to hire a wedding planner in Milwaukee, and learn about the ways to benefit from working with an industry professional!
Your Venue Doesn’t Offer A Wedding Coordinator
Some Wisconsin venues offer wedding consultants, planners, or coordinators that can act as your on-site “traffic controller” as vendors arrive, explaining to them where to set up, and sometimes even offer assistance to help set up your decor. But fear-not if this type of role is not provided at your venue space, a wedding planner can easily step into any venue and know exactly how to manage the many moving parts of a wedding day. Two critical aspects of their role at the venue is to make sure every vendor shows up (with the correct items – we ordered the white cake, not yellow!), and the room is set or decorated in time and according to the plan.
Using The Same Space for Ceremony & Reception
You’ve fallen in love with your venue, but there’s no additional room or space for your ceremony, which you would prefer to host on-site to avoid renting another venue and to keep your guests from having to drive to a second location. What about being resourceful and flipping the room?
Having both your ceremony and reception in the same space at your venue is doable. Flipping a room from having theatre-style seating at the ceremony, to seating at tables with perfectly placed centerpieces on top and proper table settings at each seat (all in under 60 minutes) is no easy task without preparation and a professional with the correct room flip plan around.
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 Milwaukee 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!
