How do you know if you should hire a full-service wedding planner or just a coordinator? Coordination is all the rage these days but it still leaves most of the planning up to the couple. And while some couples are super into the idea of planning their wedding, others have about 800 other things they would rather be doing… and I don’t blame them. I often hear from couples that wedding planning takes over their life, that they get into more disagreements with their future spouse, and that they are overwhelmed by choices!

The fun part of wedding planning is the hypothetical stuff, the dreams, the Pinterest boards… But then you have to actually figure out your budget, guest lists, who to hire, what to do when, logistics, and all the little details… Does that sound fun? If it is giving you hives or cold sweats… let’s talk about hiring a wedding planner.

Streamlined Vendor Research

Most areas are not lacking for wedding pros. It can be a fairly saturated market and sorting through all the options can be a daunting task particularly when you aren’t totally sure what questions to ask.

A full service wedding planner handles that for you!

Couples don’t have to worry about vetting the vendors, because your planner will do that for you.  You can focus on selecting from 3-5 options in each category, rather than hundreds! Plus these folks will already be a great fit for you and your partner.
