How Can You Afford Not to Have a Wedding Planner?

There is a stigma that couples cannot afford a wedding planner or coordinator for their special day, but the reality is, how can you afford not to hire a wedding planner and coordinator? Booking a planner can save you time, money, and a lot of hair pulling that can distract from what is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. Professional planners make their living off of ensuring that their clients get the perfect event within in their budget. Planners like us at Celebrations by Amy Bacon spend hours planning, organizing, and arranging details so that when you arrive to your wedding, shower, or any other event, you are able to enjoy the day as much as your guests.

According to AOL Jobs, “90 percent of soon-to-be brides plan their weddings while at work” and TheKnot.com shows that “women spend about 10 hours a week planning their wedding.” Finding what vendors to use, keeping track of who’s available when, and lining up who will take care of what on your special day can turn into another job all its own so why not save yourself that time and hassle by hiring someone to do it for you?  We can save you all that time you spend researching and negotiating with vendors because we have many connections with professional and successful vendors that you’ll want at your event. Additionally, we know vendors to avoid and can therefore save you potential mishaps on a day that should be free of worry or drama. Many vendors are perfect for not only the day’s style but for a specific budget as well.

We can help you decide where to splurge and where to save so that your budget stays balanced. It’s not easy staying in line of what you want to spend so why not hire on someone to make sure you do this, in addition to countless other things? Whether it’s tips on how to recycle décor from ceremony to reception, suggestions on whether to go with several cocktail menu options or a hearty meal, or if you really need that pink limo for your bridesmaids, we’ll help you make smart decisions on where to spend your money (and where not to spend it).

Negotiating contracts can tend to become worrisome due to all of the line items and details that occur. We negotiate contracts and review them for details that brides and grooms don’t know to look for so that you aren’t caught off guard if a vendor mentions a detail you don’t remember agreeing to. Contracts themselves can be especially tricky but at Celebrations by Amy Bacon, we have a lawyer on our team who reviews contracts in special circumstances when there are detailed questions or if issues arrive. This is just one more way that we try to ensure you know exactly what you’re paying for and to guarantee that you understand the plans for your wedding.

This all being said, we should be the first company hired for the wedding so that we can make sure you get exactly what you are envisioning for the day you become husband and wife. However, we are more than happy, willing, and able to step in at any point of the planning process to help organize your vendors and to take the weight off of your shoulders of organizing the day! We serve as not only your logistical organizer but your “creative partner” as well. You’ll never find a team of professionals that loves to talk about décor and details more than the Celebrations by Amy Bacon team! We’ll recommend color schemes, flower arrangements, special elements, and any other aspect that makes up the style and aesthetic appeal of the day. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss options for your special day. Even if it’s in a week, Celebrations by Amy Bacon will make your wedding day one that you will never forget!

  1. I made 3 phone calls when I got engaged: to my parents, my grandma and Amy. There was no way I was going to this without her. She is worth ever penny and everyone need her service.
