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 Minneapolis. 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 Minneapolis event knowledge.
Why You Need a Wedding Planner In Minneapolis
Start here, with all the reasons to hire a wedding planner in Minneapolis, and learn about the ways to benefit from working with an industry professional!
Your Venue Doesn’t Offer A Wedding Coordinator
Some Minnesota 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.
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”?
More Affordable Than You Think: Day-of Coordinator
If you’re thinking a wedding coordinator is completely out of your budget, but would still appreciate some assistance, a day-of coordinator may be your best cost-friendly option. Day-of coordinators will help you refine your wedding day timeline and run the behind-the-scenes show on the day of the wedding, guiding decor and vendor set-up, keeping track of the flower girl’s petal basket, and makes sure you have time to sneak away for touch-ups or for a break with your husband or wife. The list is endless, but you can be hopeful that if something did happen to go wrong, your day-of wedding coordinator will have it handled!
