Monday’s bring a new perspective to the start of my week.  After reading new stats from WeddingWire.com, I have factual data to share…

  • 80% of brides & grooms plan their wedding day online
  • 89% have one to three conversations with the professionals they select to provide a service before signing a contract
  • wedding day searches begin with the venue location first then a search for photographer, caterer, florist and then the music
  • 83% of brides & grooms are stressed out over their budget

These numbers can be lowered with the help of a local wedding planner…

  • Let the wedding planner suggest online businesses starting with appycouple.com and conclude with local professionals near your venue location
  • Allow the wedding planner to share his/her Preferred Vendor List to reduce the time spent researching, Q & A, and to help you find which professional would be best for your day
  • A budget will dictate your vendor selection but your wedding planner has the experience and knowledge to know what to cut and what to DIY

So, how does a wedding planner fit within your journey to find the ‘best of the best’ for your wedding day within your budget and without the stress?  Your wedding planner will bring knowledge, experience, passion and help from local professionals.  Find a dedicated wedding planner who will be there for you on your day, smiling and enthusiastic and focused.  Finding a wedding planner can be a challenge that may seem daunting and not needed but the decision to work with a wedding planner will be worth your time.  Consider finding a wedding planner at the start of your search to decrease your time online, decrease your stress, decrease the $$$ spent with creative ideas that have a successful result.
