The 5 Major Reasons You Should Hire A Wedding Planner
When it comes to the planning process, the bridal spectrum stretches from "I have no idea what I'm doing" to "I think wedding planning may be my calling. Should I quit my day job?" Accordingly, for Brides to don't know where to start, hiring a wedding planner to help them along the way can feel like a no brainer. But for Bride's were feeling like they've got this from the get-go or if you feel like the extra help isn't financially feasible, is spending thousands on a planner really worth the investment?
1.Planners can help with your budget constraints and legal contracts. Planners can stretch your budget because they know what’s more important; what will have more impact. Even small decisions can add up to big savings when you have a planner who knows what they’re doing.
2. Planners will fight for you wedding vision and keep everything on track. A planner is focused only on your special day and will push to make sure everything goes accordingly to your unique plan.
3. Planners can keep things stress-free. She will handle all the stress, not you. Especially as the wedding day gets closer, A vendor would rather bother a planner ironing out last minute details that worry an already stressed couple directly.
4. Planners can get you a vendor discount. Planners are repeat business. Couples or not. The vendors aim to please the planner so they bring the more business.
5. Planners can help you coordinate the entire day (as opposed to just one aspect.) A wedding that’s divided in multiple venues with their own coordinators may require less overall coordination. But even if a venue offers an in-house coordinator, that person will likely only be coordinating the specific details that venue is responsible for providing, like food or the space itself. They may not be focused on helping you juggle all the little things that will make your special day so special. And juggling details is the last thing you and your fiancé want to worry about on your wedding day. Your wedding planner wants to make sure this is YOUR wedding. So having someone help you and understands how to celebrate that is so important.

Flowers are one of the most important accents for your wedding! They will likely appear in most of your photos, and compliment very well with everything. If you don’t know where to begin, the task of choosing your wedding flowers might feel more daunting than sweet. Flowers are an integral part of weddings – and for good reason. They’re not only pretty and a wedding tradition, but they also allow you to express your personal style and creativity. Choosing your wedding flowers is a fun and important part of the wedding planning process, so here are a few tips to help you get started!
Here are 5 tips for choosing the perfect flowers:
1.Make a budget. This is the first and most important step when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers. Your budget will determine the types of flowers you can use in your bouquets wedding centerpieces and floral decor, so sit down with your fiancé and decide what you are comfortable spending.
2. Gather inspiration. Begin by Browsing Photos from real weddings on Pinterest. You might find floral arrangements that you absolutely love and can show the picture to your Florist but at the very least, you’ll develop a general sense of your likes and dislikes.
3. Know the basics. You don’t have to become an overnight expert on wedding flowers, but you don’t but if you don’t already know some of the basic blooms, it can be helpful to do a bit of research before meeting with your florist.
4. Use your color scheme. If you’re feeling completely stumped about your wedding flowers (we know there are a lot to choose from!), think of them in terms of color to help narrow down your choices. Your wedding flowers don’t have to be an exact match with the rest of your decor, but you should try to choose blooms that compliment your color scheme. Look at the colors on invitations, attire, table linens, and miscellaneous accents.
5. Start with the bouquets. If you or your fiancé is caring a bouquet down the aisle use that as a starting point when you're choosing your wedding flowers. Your bouquet is a statement piece that will likely appear and a majority of your wedding photos, so it's important to work with your Florist design the perfect arrangement. 6. Find a wedding florist. You’ll want to find flowers that fit your color scheme, season and budget, and the right wedding Florist will help you do all of that and more. It’s important to find a florist who understands what you want, because he/she is the person that will bring your vision to life. Check out their previous work and read reviews to get a sense of their style and their specialties (no two Florists are alike!) 7. Embrace your wedding season. Think about the types of flowers that I normally see in around that time of year when you're getting married, for example tulips in pennies in the spring, or dahlias and moms in the fall.
