Are you engaged? Have you considered working with a wedding planner? Did you know that over 95% of engaged couples feel stressed while planning a wedding? In fact, 40% say the planning process is not just stressful, but “very stressful” or even “extremely stressful.” This is why it is important for you to work with and hire a wedding planner. I have compiled “Ten Reasons why you should work with a Wedding Planner.

If you’re reading this and thinking, I thought planning my wedding was going to be the most special, happiest experience of my life. We understand. It is and can be! However, trying to plan everything on your own can ruin the wedding planning experience and even affect your wedding day. 

We won’t let that happen!

There is no reason to be stressed and exhausted leading up to and on your wedding day, especially when you can partner with a wedding planner that will ensure everything goes smoothly. You’re asking yourself, what can a wedding planner do for you? Great question! I’m glad you asked. Check out the Ten reasons why you should work with a wedding planner–it will be the best wedding decision you make. 

1. Save Time ~ Enjoy your Engagement

Hiring a wedding planner gives you the gift of time. With your wedding planner taking care of all the time-consuming details of communication and planning, you have the freedom and flexibility to spend more time enjoying the fun aspects of wedding planning, such as dress shopping, choosing your florals, planning your honeymoon, and so on.

2. Don’t Miss a Thing

Some wedding details deserve all your attention, such as your bridesmaids’ dresses and your floral bouquet. But how are you supposed to give attention to every detail when there are hundreds? It is impossible to do it all on your own. A wedding planner’s job is not to miss a thing leading up to and on your special day so everything goes as planned.

3. Stay on Budget

Many couples steer clear from hiring a wedding planner because they think it will be too expensive. However, a wedding planner can actually save you money by keeping you on budget.

You may have a general idea of how much you want to spend on your wedding, but do you know how to break down that budget to cover every expense? Unless you want to spend the next 12 to 18 months staring at a spreadsheet, you should hire a wedding planner to manage your budget. At Rogan & Co. Events we know how to maximize your budget and save you money by ensuring you only spend what is necessary on each aspect of your wedding. 

4. Get Everything in Writing

Contracts are an important part of any wedding. They should get just as much detailed consideration as your wedding attire and song choices. However, we know you haven’t been dreaming of reading and signing wedding contracts your whole life. At Rogan & Co. Events, we have read thousands of contracts and know exactly what to look for to ensure you don’t sign anything that will put you in a difficult situation. 

5. Fresh Ideas

No one wants a cookie-cutter wedding that’s just like everyone else’s. However, it can be hard to come up with fresh wedding ideas on your own, especially when you’re being bombarded by the latest trends. Wedding planners know both the latest trends and classic ideas for wedding inspiration.

Do you want a one-of-a-kind, rustic-chic wedding but aren’t sure how to make it come to life? A wedding planner can help with that, plus share ideas you haven’t even thought of yourself.

6. Stay the Course

Your wedding timeline is critical leading up to and on your wedding day. To ensure every detail has been carefully thought out, planned, and executed, and each element of your wedding is timed perfectly so no part of it feels too rushed or too slow, hire a wedding planner. 

On your wedding day, you shouldn’t have to wonder if the food was set out too soon and if it will be hot enough for your wedding guests. Nor should you have to worry about whether or not your officiant left in time to beat traffic and make it to the ceremony on time. A wedding planner can do all that, and you can be confident they know exactly how to plan, time, and coordinate everything to run smoothly. Using your vision for the day, they’ll make a timeline that makes sense and meets your needs.

7. Amazing Accomodations

Are you thinking about getting a hotel room block to continue the celebration after your wedding? Booking hotel rooms for you and your wedding party takes away the stress of traveling back home at the end of the night. This is true for both destination and local weddings. Fortunately, wedding planners can double as negotiators. At Rogan & Co. Events, we can get your rooms reserved at the best price possible, and we always negotiate to get an upgrade for you when possible. 

8. Quality Vendors

Not all wedding vendors are created equal. If you hire a Hudson Valley wedding planner, you will get the inside scoop on which vendors are the best to work with in the areas. 

Some wedding planners do get referral fees from vendors. However, to keep their reputation, they will likely only recommend someone whose work they truly adore. And of course, many wedding planners don’t accept referral fees at all but just give great referrals.

At Rogan & Co. Events we have established relationships with the highest quality wedding vendors in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas. We’d love to share our recommendations with you today! 

9. Enjoy your day Hire a Wedding Planner

A wedding planner doesn’t only help you in the months leading up to your wedding. They’re also there to help on the day itself. On your wedding day, do you really want to be rushing around trying to take care of last-minute details? Hire a wedding planner to make sure the candles are lit and the desserts get put out on time. That way, you can relax with your friends and family and a glass of champagne instead.

10. Nothing gets left behind when you work with a planner.

At the end of the night, it’s easy to forget things like gifts and cake toppers. However, you’ll be kicking yourself for years to come if valuable things go missing because you left them at your wedding venue. A wedding planner will make sure nothing of value gets left behind, so you can walk out the door and continue the celebration with no worries.
