A Wedding Planner??? For What?!?

 I guess when you consume yourself with wedding magazines, blogs, and details...you sometimes forget that not everyone is that passionate or concerned with "the details". After experiencing so many weddings in Chicago, I saw that a "Day-Of" wedding coordinator has become a typical part of a Brides budget.  Yet, the question that has been brought to me several times recently is ...Why would I want to hire a wedding coordinator? 
Let me first say most importantly, you don't have to be obsessed with the details, and be on a lavish budget to desire and hire a Wedding Planner. With a variety of weddings these days there comes a variety of budgets and as a Wedding coordinator, I like to offer something for every budget!!  Even those with a Pig-Pickin backyard BBQ wedding could still benefit from a wedding planner at some point in the planning process- but why?

Hiring a wedding planner will make the planning process stress free and enjoyable, it can take several pressures off the Bride and Groom.  A wedding planner usually will have good contacts with other vendors such as bakers, photographers, and florist.  Usually having experience, a wedding planner can anticipate issues that may arise that haven't been thought about by the Bride and Groom.  We can help Brides come up with ideas that will add personalization to their wedding, and sometimes a planner can just begin by giving good direction to the Bride who doesn't even know where to start. 
It's easy for couples to get overwhelmed, and that's what a planner helps to avoid.  A Wedding Planner will provide etiquette, budget, and time lines for each couple to save them time and energy and be a major support system for the big event.  Getting your big day to flow well is important no matter where your having your wedding, and having a planner will help make that all run smoothly. By working closely with each couple, we can make the most important aspects of your wedding really happen and make adjustments quick and flawlessly when needed.  We want to bring your vision to a reality!  The day of your wedding should be pure bliss, and there's no time for headaches worrying about if your aunt put the place cards where they were suppose to go, or if your cousin remembered to put rose petals around the dessert table.  Trust me, you won't have time the day of your wedding to be making last minute decisions let alone be decorating your reception hall.  The Wedding Coordinator will be the person that everyone goes to for issues the day of your Wedding rather than you, the happy couple.  Who wants to ruin a couples big day by telling them the photographer hasn't arrived.  Having a coordinator - they will have already confirmed that the photographer will be there, and if he/she isn't- your coordinator will be tracking your vendors down for you! " Wedding day coordinators take over the "business" side of the wedding" allowing brides and their families to relax and have fun.  Many Brides admit later that they almost didn't hire a wedding coordinator but realized afterwards that it was the best money spent on the entire wedding.  Brides want a perfect wedding day and we as Wedding Coordinators make your day perfect!  If you haven't considered hiring a Wedding Coordinator you should! Your vendors and family will thank you ;-)
