You were just engaged. You’ve agreed on a day to get married and decide on a destination wedding in Maine. Planning your own wedding is a fairytale come true…but is it? Is hiring a professional to assist the way to the fairytale ending?
We took the time to reach out to some local event experts for their advice on why the key to planning the perfect day really lies with hiring a professional. Here’s what they can help you accomplish:
Stress relief: This was unanimous! Every planner I surveyed emphasized that a planner will absorb the stress of organizing a wedding. The couple should have a positive and fun experience with their wedding. The professional planner will guide them through the process and keep it enjoyable.
Vision and Budget: The first step for a wedding planner is to understand your vision. The planner would then work with your budget to make sure that it can be allocated to the appropriate venders and suppliers to meet your vision.
Support: A planner will be a guiding hand throughout the process. They will think of all the details that need to be done to make the night magical.
Contact with industry suppliers: Event planners have the quality contacts and sub contractors in the event industry to produce your wedding day vision on time and on budget. They have vetted many vendors over the years and will guide the couple to the ones that are the best fit.
Long Distance Destination Planning: The event planner is the local feet on the ground. Many wedding that Sperry works with are destination weddings in Maine or New Hampshire. The event planner is local and can meet with venders face to face.
Venue is Blank Slate: Many venues are a blank slate. The wedding must be designed from the ground up. The planner has the experience and training to execute the couples wedding vision and make it Pinterest Perfect.
Family Management: The event planner is the mediator to keep the family together through the process. This process can be stressful. Family members and couples, with good intent, often have differing opinions the planner will help diffuse and mediate.
Wedding Time Line Management: The event planner manages the time line and production of the wedding. All venders, ranging from the tent company, the limousine, the band, the photographer, caterer, etc report to the event planner. The event planner handles all last minute details and solves all last minute emergencies so the couple has a fantastic wedding day..
