Things That Happen at Weddings & How a Wedding Planner Can Help

As a wedding planner, I could give you lots of reasons as to why to hire a wedding planner.  So, I'll just give you a few:

We also have done the following and saved the day...

  • fixed boutonnieres
  • made bouquets from extra flowers
  • fixed wedding cakes
  • pinned broken bustles
  • sewed broken bustles
  • stood in for MC for DJ
  • handed out band aids, scissors, hair clips, paper clips, safety pins, tape, kleenex, nail clippers, pens, crazy glue and more to wedding guests, wedding party, and vendors
  • put on brides shoes
  • hold up wedding dress so bride can go potty
  • act as security when needed (our least favorite)
  • supply cake knife and server when forgotten
  • supply votive candles when forgotten
  • supply reserved signs when forgotten
  • supply last minute DJ when DJ friend of bridesmaid didn't show up 
  • tie on old-fashioned bow ties (the ones WITHOUT the clips)
  • step in as bar back, step in as bartender, served wine and or champagne
  • act as banquet manager
  • make plates in back of kitchen
  • drain ice sculpture bucket
  • clean up/pick up rose petals off ground/dance floor/church aisle

The list can LITERALLY go on and on.....so if you are on the fence as to whether or not to hire a planner, maybe some of these just gave you the push you needed.  : )
