Why Hire a Wedding Planner
Planning your own wedding can be a stressful and a huge undertaking. Budgets, venues, caterers, florists, details, decorations, and now your soon to be mother in law wants you to repurpose her center pieces from HER wedding 30 years ago. Oh, boy. It’s all a bit overwhelming, to say the least.
We are all busy people, with 5 million things running through our minds at any given time, it can be hard to balance work/life, as well as planning what will (arguably) be the most important day of your life.
Weddings are supposed to be fun, beautiful and exciting, NOT stressful. To help alleviate this stress, more and more brides (and grooms) are choosing to enlist the help of professional wedding planners, or “day of” coordinators.
We meet a variety of people in our business. Some are specific and organized, some are laid back and willing to give up control, some have no idea what they want their wedding day to look like. But, they all have one thing in common, they want a stress free, beautiful wedding day that goes off without a hitch.
And, that my beautiful brides, and handsome grooms, is were Infinity Management comes into play.
Here are our top reasons to hire a wedding planner for your big day:
1. Let your friends and family enjoy your day with you
So many brides and grooms enlist the help of friends, family, and distant relatives from across the country. Your guests are there to celebrate your special day with you. They DO NOT want to help you put on 200 chair covers, tie chiffon sashes, or string lights from the ceiling. They do not want to do these things, but they WILL, because they are kind, and they love you.
PEOPLE: Show your friends, and family you love them back and do not utilize them for the set up and take down of your wedding. Let them enjoy the day. Let them be guests. Let them dance. Let them have a few glasses of wine. Let them go home early and have a nap, if they want. Let US do all the work, relieve some stress, and make your day perfect.
2. We provide industry knowledge and resources
The wedding industry is a small world, and we have many connections within it. Often times wedding planners have preferred vendors, and can offer their clients preferred service from these vendors. We can help you find the best prices for your wedding décor, or even locate specific/elusive hard to find items.
We also know who the best of the best are within the industry, and can guide you in choosing which vendors you want to deal with.
Professionally, as well as personally, we attend so many weddings. We’ve seen the best and the worst of vendors to deal with. We have tasted the best cakes, heard the best DJ’s/bands, and know what venues are the best for your special day. Utilize us for our knowledge and our experience, because again, we’ve really seen the best and the worst.
3. We coordinate your vendors
OMG!! It’s two hours before your wedding reception and you don’t know where your DJ is? Leave it to us. We will find him, and make sure the party gets started. Did the rental store send you white chair covers instead of black? WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED. We know just who to call to fix the problem.
Wedding planners stay on top of your vendors to assure that everything shows up on time, and ensure you’re not left having to make last minute calls. Again, we take all of the hassle and worry out of your day.
4. We will keep everything running on time
When was the last time you were at a wedding that was running NO LESS than 15 minutes behind? It happens so often, and it’s annoying for your guests. Tardiness is usually the result of chaos and a lack of organization on the day of your wedding. There is so much going on the entire day, and it’s very easy for things to fall behind schedule. Hiring a wedding planner for “day of” services will ensure that everything is running in a timely, and efficient manor.
Has your father in law gone AWOL? Has your old Aunt Nelly fallen asleep in the broom closet? We will find them, and get them to where they need to be, on time, and looking sharp.
5. We give you peace of mind
If there is NO better reason to include a wedding planner in your budget, it’s peace of mind. We will ensure that your countless hours of planning come to life. We will make the vision you have for your wedding come to fruition. We will take care of any snafu’s, so you can enjoy your day, and be carefree. We will pin flowers on the groomsmen, fluff the brides dress, and make sure the lights are at the perfect level for optimal ambiance. We will take care of the details, so you don’t have to worry.
We often tell people that hiring a wedding planner, is like hiring movers. Sure, it’s a job you can do yourself, or bribe your friends with beer to help out. Sure you could save the money and get your entire extended family to do the job. If you truly want an elegant, and relaxed wedding day, a day you’ll truly enjoy, you won’t regret investing in a wedding planner.
It will make your big day that much more special. We promise.
