5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

Are you asking yourself why you should hire a Professional Wedding Planner and want to let your friends & family members enjoy your wedding?!

Lights! Camera! Action! Your wedding is one of the largest, most significant productions of your life. You and your fiancé are the main characters; your wedding party are the supporting actors.

Wouldn't you want a Professional Wedding Planner to keep the cast and crew on the same page? Why let your mom, best friend, or Aunt Dot manage your three-act play {rehearsal, ceremony, reception}? A Professional Wedding Planner is the stage manager on your big day—YOUR production.

Reason #1

Attention to Details

An experienced, professionally trained wedding Planner has worked a number of events and knows a thing or two about what to do when there’s a problem. We’re quick thinking, on-the-spot problem solvers who take care of any unforeseen matters that may arise, so you don’t have to.

We know the wedding industry and we have built a rapport with your chosen vendors to make their jobs easier. Experienced Wedding Planners make sure all the details are taken care of as if you did them yourself and they work side by side with your vendors, so you can enjoy your big day.

We take the time to meticulously set up your personal decor while you're enjoying the "getting ready" part of your wedding day with your wedding party.

Reason #2 Timeline 

A Wedding Planner, worth her salt, will create a detailed timeline to share with you and your vendors, but will be the one to execute it. An experienced Planner will know what works and what doesn’t based on the layout of the location{s}. A timeline serves as a flowchart, keeping track of ALL the important details, including where the key people {including vendors} should be at all points during the wedding & that even includes before the ceremony. They know every moving piece and are on top of it all, you truly do not have to worry about a thing.

Reason #3 Knowledge, Training and Credentials

While our industry is not regulated by licenses or degrees, knowing your Professional Wedding Planner is certified and well educated on the latest trends, should give you the confidence that they have taken the time to learn about weddings & business. This isn't a hobby for them, it is their livelihood & they take it very seriously. Our motto is we only have one shot at this, we have to get it right! There are no do overs!

For instance, I am a Certified Wedding Planner and credentialed as a Professional Wedding Planner™ through the national organization, Association of Bridal Consultants; which I've been a proud member since I began my career in 2009.

As mentioned, there’s no license or specific degree to become a wedding planner, however some planners do complete a certification course; others will apprentice under an experienced planner to gain their experience or do both. No matter which route we take, we all strive to have knowledge of budgets, timelines, vendors and contracts. My staff and I are constantly updating our skills and keeping up with new trends, meeting new vendors and understanding any state/local regulations.

Reason #4 Stress Relief

A Professional Wedding Planner is someone who’s there for you through thick and thin. No matter what level of service you book with us, we, at Inked Events, immediately come onto the planning scene in advance of your big day to help elevate some of the stress. It’s our job to be preoccupied with the details—that’s what a stage manager does!

Your guests are celebrating you. They’re excited to see you marry your best friend, but our job is to make sure that all the cast of characters enjoy it. My team has eyes and ears on everything happening throughout the wedding.

There’s nothing like getting an email or phone call from one of our clients saying I’ve helped relieve some major crisis; or a testimonial saying that it was the best decision they ever made in the planning process when they hired us.

Reason #5 Peace of Mind

What price can you put on peace of mind? We know the details of your wedding as well as you do, so rest assured, your wedding will have the look and feel of you without you having to worry about it. I’m the “other” best friend. We build our relationship over the course of the planning process, so I will have intimate knowledge of your wedding. I want to hear about the details of your wedding and what else is going on in your life. I'm just as excited about your wedding as you are and I will help you with any questions you may have and guide you in the right direction.

Whether I've worked with your vendor team before or not, I always develop a relationship with each one of the vendors so I can coordinate a day that is seamless and perfect. It's a team effort and I make sure we're all on the same page. We take care of the behind-the-scenes details, so you don’t have to.
