Are Wedding Planners Worth It?

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

We all dream of the perfect evening on our wedding night, and the one who rises to the occasion, makes it possible, and stays by your side to cater to your every need, is better known as the wedding planner. If you’re asking yourself whether or not you need to book yourself a planner, the answer is… no pun intended, I do! There will be less stress and anxiety on your shoulders, so that you can focus and stay excited to enjoy the most magical night of your lives at FireFly Gardens, where your newlywed life begins.

What Are Wedding Planners & Their Responsibilities?

Every wedding planner does things their own exclusive way, but the services and activities stay similar for the most part:

  • Budget & Venue

    • Planned meetings

    • Booking a venue

  • Photographer, Cinema, Music, Beauty

    • Supervise cues with music, first dances, speeches, cake cutting, and coordinate all vendors (photographers, videographers, entertainment, catering)

    • Day-of styling for wedding details (invitations, vow books, jewelry, shoes)

    • Bridal glam – hair & makeup artists

  • Food & Beverage

    • Vendor meetings

    • Menu options

  • Design, Floor Plan Creation & Design Vendors

    • Event design & style creation
