5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Wedding Planner

There are a million reasons why you should hire a wedding planner for your wedding. I’ve been a wedding photographer for almost 10 years and in my opinion, hiring a wedding planner is one of the best investments you can make for your day. Lots of venues will offer day of wedding coordinators, but the truth is, those people are working for the venue – not for you. A wedding planner will be your go-to person for everything you need on the wedding day, a sounding board for planning ideas and an unbelievable resource for information. Are you still on the fence? Here are my top 5 reasons why you should hire a wedding planner:

They’re industry experts

Planners deal with everyone from venues and caterers to photographers, DJ’s, hair and makeup artists, officiants, etc. They know the ins and outs of the business, can coordinate all of your vendors and help manage things you’ve never even thought of.

Help you stay on budget

Creating a wedding budget can be tricky business! A wedding planner will have the experience and expertise to not only keep you on budget, but maybe even save you money! They can help you decide where to splurge, where to save and how to make the most of your money.


An efficient wedding timeline can be the difference between a stress-free wedding or stressful wedding – for you and your vendors! Your planner will help create the perfect timeline for your day and make sure things stay on stack.

Creative vision

Your wedding planner can be the perfect sounding board for all of your creative ideas and can help bring your vision to life. They will have the knowledge and resources to turn your wedding into a real-life Pinterest board!

Stress relief

Hiring a wedding planner means you will have someone to coordinate vendors, put out fires, manage the timeline and handle everything so you don’t have to! Because of this, you’ll be free to relax and enjoy the day, knowing they’ve got your back!
