What is a Wedding Planner? Someone who will save you money!

Out of all the reasons we hear from our clients as to why they choose a Wedding Planner, very rarely do they say that, "A Wedding Planner saves you money." This is one of the most overlooked reasons for hiring a planner.

In most cases, the savings experienced by the couple through their wedding planner's sharp negotiating skills pay for the cost of hiring the planner, if not more. So in the end the bride and groom is left with a beautifully orchestrated wedding, planned by a professional, with less stress and the ability to focus on the enjoyment of getting married. The best planners get you the best service for the best price -- our reputation depends on it.
