Wedding Planning ~ Tips and Trends

Why Do I Need a Planner ?

Why do I need a wedding planner?  Every couple struggles with this question and with Valentine's Day marking the most popular engagement date of the year, over six million Americans will soon have to ask themselves this question. Lucky for couples everywhere, wedding planners are no longer considered an extravagance reserved for the financially elite. The expertise and services offered by the modern wedding planner are an invaluable resource! The job description of the modern wedding planner encompasses everything from a financial manager and architect to internet guru and social media expert. Brides magazine recently published an article stating that over 75% of recently married couples who did not engage the services of a wedding planner in retrospect wishes they had.  The scope of services offered by today's planners has also evolved.  Wedding Planners offer everything from Full Service Planning and Design for the couple planning the extravagant, over-the-top celebration to workshops and one on one counseling, perfect for the couple planning a small intimate celebration who just need a bit of guidance to get them started making services both available and affordable for every couple.

There are a million different reasons why couples need a planner, and each couples reasons for hiring one is different. The typical Bay Area Wedding will cost between 35K to 50K dollars with many of them topping over 100K.  Your wedding is an investment both financially and emotionally and with so much money passing through the wedding checkbook why wouldn't you want the guidance of a professional to manage your investment?
