With endless possibilities from Pinterest wedding boards and access to plenty of information with a simple Google search, you may question the benefits of hiring a wedding planner. For some brides, the answer is easy; they know that wedding planning is just not for them. But for brides having spent their whole lives imagining every aspect of their wedding day, they may not see the need for extra help. Hiring a wedding planner offers perks for every bride, wedding size, and budget.

A bad wedding vendor

By Rolf Shick, Banquet Manager, The Manor

We want everything to be perfect on our wedding day. But sometimes things out of your control go wrong – for example, a vendor messes something up. Maybe the flowers are droopy, or the photographers or musicians are dressed sloppily. The possibility of a vendor faux pas is one reason why it’s important that a contract or contracts with vendors for all your wedding services stipulate the last check is due at the end of the wedding day. That gives you leverage to hold out on final payment if you are unsatisfied with the performance of any of your vendors. If you are unhappy with the way the flowers look or the musicians are dressed, for example, make sure someone you know takes photos of the culprits or offending items so you have visual documentation of what you are unsatisfied with. Even pictures from a camera phone can suffice, and almost everyone has one of those today. That way, even if your dream wedding isn’t completely picture perfect, you can help ensure vendors will make the proper financial adjustments to their fees.

Thank you!
