About Me

Are you a people pleaser? And worried that you will give in to what others want on your wedding day? What if I told you that a wedding planner could save the day by advocating for what you really want? Or that hiring a planner could put your mind at ease and be fully present on your wedding day? Here are just five of the many reasons to hire a wedding planner!

You don’t want to be stuck working on your wedding day.

You may have done all the planning and hard work leading up to the day. But on your wedding day, the only job you have is marrying the love of your life. On the morning of your wedding, you should be getting pampered with your closest friends, not directing vendors and setting up décor. A wedding planner arrives before the ceremony, directs vendors, places décor, keeps the day running on time, puts out fires and so much more. If you ask a friend or family member to be your point person, it leaves them with no time to enjoy the celebration.

Planning a wedding can be a full time job. 

Let’s be real, wedding planning can be stressful. Planning a wedding, working a full time job and trying to maintain a social life can make the most organized person stressed. There are so many details that go into creating the perfect day, that many couples forget to soak up the time being engaged. Planners are there to take most of the responsibilities off of your plate. So you can relax and enjoy being engaged! 

You have never planned a wedding.

Chances are you’ve never planned a wedding before. So it is totally okay to have absolutely no idea where to start! The good news is your wedding planner is an expert at guess what? Planning weddings! Your planner will work closely with you to design a wedding day that reflects you as a couple. We will make sure you have every little detail in place two weeks before your wedding day. Giving you peace of mind and time to relax.

You will have a liaison between you and your wedding vendors.

Your vendors will need a contact person on the day of your wedding to call with any questions or last-minute problems. The last thing you want on your wedding morning is the florist calling you asking where to set up or the DJ texting you that his car broke down and he will be late. Your wedding planner will be in contact with your vendors a minimum of one month before your wedding day. So they know exactly who to call with any problem or question that should arise! Our goal is to handle any issues quickly and discreetly before the couple is even aware of an issue.

They will bring your wedding vision to life.

Your wedding planner will bring your wedding vision to life. A lot of couples will say their venue comes with a day-of coordinator, so they do not need a wedding planner. When in reality, the venue coordinator’s job is the venue. They create the foundation for your wedding ceremony and reception by placing tables, chairs and assisting with the room flip between ceremony and reception. Most of the time a venue coordinator will not set up your personal décor leaving you to do it yourself. A wedding planner will work with you the months leading up to your wedding to nail down a plan for your wedding vision. Then bring it to life on your wedding day.

In the end, there are endless reasons to hire a wedding planner. Making this choice is a no-brainer if you want to have a wedding day that is true to you and stress-free. Your wedding day is about you and your partner. Let us handle all of the details you have dreamed of, while you enjoy getting married! Dream Weddings is available for all your wedding planning needs and will make your day a dream.
