    By Cristina Galvan–

    Did you just get engaged? Do you want to have a big 40th birthday party or any social event to celebrate a special time in your life? Do you know someone who does, and you want to help? Are there too many things to do? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you thinking your budget won’t cover everything you want? Hire a wedding or event planner to help you every step of the way. With their guidance, you will be led along the right path that doesn’t leave you broke.

    A wedding or event planner can help plan and coordinate a special occasion for you, or someone you know. They will sit down with you, get to know you, and discuss your vision and style. They will hear you out, and fully understand what you are envisioning.

    They know a lot of vendors, and know how to choose them with your budget and style in mind. They will also work alongside them. On the day or night of the event, they will coordinate the entire day or evening and make sure it flows smoothly. They will work closely with the photographer, DJ, and venue to make sure the timeline is followed as closely as possible. For weddings, they will run your rehearsal and coordinate the ceremony processional, as well as coordinate the grand entrance into the reception. They will check in on the bride, the groom, and the entire wedding party throughout the day. They will do this, and much more!

    Are you going to have a lot of décor and\or rentals? A professional will assist with this. They will set up décor according to your specifications. They will also let vendors know where to place rentals and flowers. Everything will look the way you want it to. Leave it all up to a professional to make your wedding or other event look and feel great. They do all the work, so you can relax and enjoy.

    Overall, you will have a stress-free day and evening because of them. They will handle any potential problems that may arise. Even if a vendor runs late, they will be there to handle the situation. They carry an emergency kit in case a button comes off, or if other issues arise. If the timeline is not followed properly, it could throw everything off and all details may fall apart. You would avoid these disasters by hiring a professional who’d be there to prevent them from happening in the first place.

    A wedding or event planner will carry out all the details to make sure that your wedding or event is a complete success. They will even save you money in the long run, so do not short change yourself by trying to go it alone.
