What to Expect from your Wedding Planner

When booking your wedding planner, it’s important to know what you can expect from them.  Some responsibilities are obvious and expected, like lining everyone up for the processional and making sure that you have your bouquet for photos.  However, here are 3 things that an experienced planner will bring to the table that you may not realize will make a huge difference in your wedding day.

Keeping you on time throughout your big day:
A well thought-out timeline will be the difference between feeling rushed from one place to another and really being able to enjoy your day.  Your planner will create a timeline custom to your wedding, allotting for the right amount of time for each thing that is important to you.  This will help the entire day flow smoothly, giving you ample time to really enjoy every aspect.

Putting you in contact with the best-of-the-best vendors:
Your wedding is only as great as the vendors that you book.  And, unless you’ve been in the industry for many years, you may not know the very best people to help execute the big dreams you have for your wedding.  Your planner will be able to link you with vendors that will be the perfect fit for you and your fiance.  An established planner will also have the ability to score you really great packages that fit perfectly into your budget.

Being your voice:
As much as you adore your friends and family, there will inevitably be someone that will disagree with the choices you and your planner make for your day.  Whether it's the camera-free ceremony or assigned reception seating, your planner should be the person addressing your guests’ concerns during your wedding.  They will make sure that your wishes are carried out exactly how you discussed, while making sure that your guests are comfortable and able to enjoy the day with you.
Take these things into consideration when searching for a planner for your wedding day.  This person will have such an impact on the day and it's important that you can trust them to make it as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
