You will get experienced professionals
When you look purely at price, you will see that wedding planners will in general cost you a little bit more. This is because they are at the top of their game, and have clocked up countless hours of training and experience in their craft in order to reach that point and they know who all the right vendors are- the florists who deliver the perfect floral decor every time, the photographer that will capture the mood you want and they will smooth everything over.
Clare Parker from RSVP Events in Verbier says, “Cheaper suppliers and plannersnormally mean that they are newer and inexperienced. They are building up a brand and are starting at a base price until they feel they have the expertise to charge more. A quality priced vendor or planner usually means a quality service. As a client you want eloquence and expertise. Your Wedding day is not a day you want to spend time worrying about letting the florist into the church or reminding the DJ to bring an extra microphone.”
Your wedding day is not the time to risk it
We aim to deliver this- As a recent groom said to us- "you made sure I had the best day of my life and I didn't have to worry about a thing"
It's up to you in the end how much you want to hand over to the wedding planner- if cousin Jill is a hairdresser- get her to help you out with hair.
“Remember, you may be saving $1000 or or so but is it really worth the risk of being stressed on your wedding day? And in many cases your wedding planner can help you get a discount because they have great relationships with current vendors.
Make sure you are clear about your budget from the beginning- The wedding planner can work within it or tell you if you're being unrealistic.
