Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner
1. Wedding Pro
Are you currently working full time? Well if you’re planning your own wedding, then you’re adding another full-time job to your already busy life! Yup, that’s right – it’s that time-consuming! Heather Dawn Events swoops in and helps you with those time-consuming pieces like contacting and negotiating with vendors, stuffing wedding invitations, calming your nerves when you’re about to have that “bridezilla moment,” making each detail and design aspect you’ve envisioned come to life, and assuring each moving piece of your wedding day flows seamlessly.
2. Decision Maker
Planning a wedding involves a ton of decision-making. When you and your fiancé find yourselves stuck and not sure which choice to make, Heather Dawn Events is there to assist in that process while helping you weigh the pros and cons.
3. Money Saver
Many couples think that hiring a wedding planner is only for those who have a lot of money, but that’s not the case! Wedding planners are an extremely wise choice for brides on a budget because they can actually help you save money. Heather Dawn Events knows how to make sure you’re not overpaying for your vendors and helps you to cut the cost in many ways. We also will help you manage your money while determining what percentage of your budget to allocate where, in terms of what is most important to you and your fiancé.
4. Creative Designer
A wedding planner is like having your own personal creative designer! You show us your ideas, themes, and Pinterest boards and we make them come to life. You’ve envisioned fresh floral and greenery draping above each reception table, yet you have no idea how to make that come to life. Well, no worries – that’s why you have hired an expert wedding planner! Heather Dawn Events specializes in those personalized details and designs that you’ve always dreamed of and makes them reality.
5. Day-Of Timeline
The most important day of your life is finally here, but without a properly thought out day-of timeline, you will be lost! Heather Dawn Events customizes a day-of timeline for each couple and hands them out to the entire bridal party. We coordinate the timeline with the venue and all of the vendors involved. It’s so detailed, that it contains information from the moment you wake up until the moment you drive away for the night with the love of your life, as the new Mr. and Mrs!
