Oh how we love those Wedding Sites like the Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, Bride.com and so on….They all provide excellent tools to plan your own very special day. Professional tools indeed as we Wedding Planners use them ( well…the simplified version indeed ). It makes it look so easy and thinking about it now…what do we need to pay or hire Wedding Planners for anyhow ???
Well there is a simple answer to that. Because you are none, period. Does that sound mean? You are still with me? Good…keep reading. Here is an example. Let’s say somebody offers to you the gift of an old 1963 Chevy that needs to be restored; you get all excited and can’t wait to get started. First you get online and have all these choices of sites that show you how to repair and restore these old car parts. So now you go ahead and sign up and order all the tools needed , as they recommend on the website. Sounds familiar right ?
Now ,after you purchased the tools, you are anxious to start and look for the instructions on where and how to begin. …..
We hear alot about Wedding Planners. Alot of Couples are torn between the decision to hire a Planner or not.
What kind of Experience do you need to be truly successful as a Planner.
First of all you have to have a Vision of the Completed Event. You have to be a Peoples Person in order to become a successful Planner. It’s important to have a Network of Vendors around you, that you can trust.
Wedding Planning is a tedious Process and takes alot of understanding of the Process in the whole.

There are so many factors involved , that go beyond the centerpiece and the color scheme…..

RUNNING THE NUMBERS
There are 2 ways to create a budget.
1. Determine the amount of Money that is available right now. This includes Money that you and your fiance may have sqirreled away for the event, as well as any contributions that you are aware of. for example : Your parents saved up for your wedding day, your grand-parents etc saved money for your wedding. The total of these resources determine the total of your budget assuming you are paying cash for most of the expenses.
2. Create a ball bark figure to present to your parents for a better idea on how much they will chip in. there are many ways to get to the numbers as certain services provide ballpark figures. This is the way to plan , if there has been no savings setup for the wedding. Your Weddingplanner will be a great resource and help to create the budget for your ideal Wedding.
3. Against common belief that a Wedding Planner would not fit into your budget, you will find out after the first free consultation, that the resouces and experience of a seasoned WeddingPlanner can help you stretch your budget out . Since WeddingPlanners have a wide range of vendors they work with, they have in most cases a better offer for you than a random choice of vendor.
