You're Newly Engaged Congrats!: Here’s Why You Should Hire A Full Service Wedding Planner In Atlanta

April 22, 2020

You’re newly engaged and ready to embark on a lifetime adventure as Mr. & Mrs.

Where do you start?  

Not really sure, so you Google planning a wedding, purchase a few Atlanta and Georgia wedding magazines, start a Pinterest board, download a free planning calendar, and attend a few Atlanta bridal shows.

Ok, now that’s done, so what’s next?

Your friend suggests that you should hire a wedding planner; however, you are hesitant and consider handling the planning yourself.

What should you do?

For many, the decision of whether to hire a wedding planner can come down to cost and not understanding why you need one.  You might reason that a planner is a luxury and not a necessity when it comes to your wedding. 

If you think about it, to be legally married, you need an officiant, a Georgia marriage license, and two witnesses; everything else is a luxury item.  

I love this quote from Melissa Boyd of Novelty Events “A wedding is a lot like a limo. It’s luxurious, fun, expensive, and you only have it for one day! Why would you rent a limo but then drive yourself around? Wedding planning is kind of similar — why would you spend all this money on your one wedding day and try to do everything yourself?” 

While many couples make the decision DIY in the beginning, a good majority of them, in the end, wish they had invested in a full-service wedding planner.  Understandably it is not very apparent what a wedding planner does, especially if this is your first time getting married. It is a little easier for you to picture what value to your celebration other wedding professional provide based their title: Wedding Photographer = Photography, Confectioner = Wedding Cake/Dessert, Caterer = Food, D.J./Band = Music/Entertainment. See easy breezy.

But what about that Wedding Planner?  What value/benefit do we bring to the party?

The scope of what we do is vastly unknown by many; it is so much more than checking off a to list and cueing the bridal party down the aisle.  Honestly, most planning service package description

s only touches the tip of the iceberg. The actual scope of what we do is so rich in detail and varies depending on your needs.  It takes a lot of patience, organization, creativity, passion, and, most of all, time to plan and execute a genuinely flawless and remarkable celebration. Planning your wedding is like having another full-time job, and can you honestly enjoy the process if you are exhausted?  

On average, can we spend up to 500 hours on planning and producing your wedding.  We put our heart and soul into every celebration we plan, design, produce, and manage; the time we spend on your event helps you to enjoy your engagement and wedding day.

We give you Peace of Mind.

The peace of mind to know that we have your back, allowing you to enjoy every moment.  Not only do we recommend the right vendors for your creative team, attend meetings, read through contracts, and ensure fulfillment; and serve as your advocate and liaison.  We are here to offer you advice, answer any questions, or take you on a coffee date just because you need a break.

We will keep you on track, for example, making sure you order your wedding dress on time, create a budget that reflects your per-person cost (there is a difference in spending 100k for 100 guests vs. 100k for 200 guests).   Not only do we pay attention to the big “obvious” things we also look-out for the small “not, so obvious” details. For example, confirming weeks before the wedding day when the rentals can arrive at the venue or if set up can happen the day or night before with or without an extra fee.
