Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

March 31, 2012

Planning a wedding can be a very exciting yet stressful time, especially with all the details that need to be attended to. A wedding planner can take care of these details, no matter how big or small. Since she knows the couple's budget and vision for their wedding, she can find vendors that best meet a couple's budget and vision. In addition, she'll know the couple's likes and dislikes and will make sure even the most minor details are perfect.

Your wedding planner will also keep a time line. As a  newly engaged couple you can quickly be overwhelmed with what to do first and how far in advance it should be booked. Since she's done this many times before, the planner knows the proper sequence of events and how they should be handled.

Things to Consider

If you are considering hiring a wedding planner, here are a few things that she will do for you:

  • Work according to an established timeline and let you know what should be done and when.
  • Assist in establishing a realistic budget that is tailored to meet your most important aspects of your special date.
  • Negotiate fees and discounts so you can have what you want at the lowest price.
  • Advise you when payments are due to each vendor.
  • Help with menu selection that is best for you as well as your guests. She will also make sure that all food and drink items are of the very best quality for your budget.
  • Help to select a tasteful wedding cake, within your price range.
  • Handle decorations, table linens, flowers and favors to make sure everything is properly coordinated.
  • Ensure that everything is orchestrated smoothly from the walk down the aisle to the tossing of the bouquet.


Wedding planners are no longer just for the rich and famous. With affordable pricing and flexible payment plans,  they're now for couples of all walks of life. If you're overwhelmed with all that needs to be done for your wedding, why not hire a wedding planner? It will be one of the best decisions you will ever make when planning for your perfect day!

"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
