Going into their wedding, a lot of brides believe that planning their wedding is something that they can do on their own, or at best, with the help of their mom and their best friend. In truth, planning a wedding is definitely a very stressful event, one that will challenge a person’s physical and mental capabilities to the limit. If you’re a smart bride who wants their wedding to go off as smoothly as possible, you should consider hiring a wedding planner for your wedding.
Think about it this way: if you’re decorating your home, you hire an interior decorator. If you’re designing a building, you hire an architect. Doesn’t it make sense that if you’re planning a wedding – this big, once-in-a-lifetime, memorable event – you hire a professional as well? This is where the wedding planner comes in.
Here are 3 good reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
1. Sticking to a Budget
One of the biggest challenges when it comes to planning a wedding is making sure that you stick to your budget. Sure, every bride dreams of a wedding where cost is not an issue, but sadly, this is not the case for many brides out there. They need to make sure that they are getting the best bang for their buck, and having a wedding planner at your side will help you make all the right financial decisions for your wedding.
If you book a seasoned wedding planner, they might be a little more expensive, but their wealth of knowledge and contacts within the wedding industry could be priceless. You won’t need to canvass for a great baker or an amazing wedding gown designer because your wedding planner has it all under control.
3. Making your Dreams a Reality
The thing about planning a wedding is that what you see in your head doesn’t always translate directly into reality. Hiring a wedding planner is like hiring a person who can see your vision with you, then find the best, most practical and most affordable way to bring your vision to life.
Sure, a wedding planner could be an added expense to your wedding plans, but think of all the headache and heartache you can save because you’ve got someone who’s got the know-how, and who knows the right people. If you choose the right wedding planner for your budget and your preferences, it could turn out to be the best wedding decision you ever made (aside from having the wedding in the first place, of course).

Every year there are dozens of trade shows and bridal shows that vendors have the opportunity to showcase their skills. These shows are meant to bring vendors and potential new clients together and to make a personal connection between the two. This is a time where vendors are able to showcase their talent on a large scale. Due to the cost of participating in a show, it is imperative that vendors make the most out of each interaction. Through the years, we have compiled a list of do’s and don’ts when at a show:

“I can’t say enough amazing things about Brett and his team. Brett was the first and only DJ we really considered for our wedding- not only was he a great value and right on budget- but I’d also heard great things about him previously. He lived up to the hype and more. He was extremely accommodating for the obscure music choices we made. He went out of his way and above and beyond to make sure we had a rocking party. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more people on the dance floor at a wedding. The fact that he took note of funny or personal stories during the toasts and incorporated them into his music selections (i.e. the sister of the groom mentioning she used to make the groom watch and sing along to Grease with her as kids, and hearing a Grease medley during the dancing just for them). Or his surveying of guests during downtime for things that they would like to hear. Or that he brought himself and another main DJ to run things since his wife was expecting and close to her due date, in case he needed to leave in a hurry. The forethought, the attention to us as a couple and what we were interested in, just everything. I truly can’t say enough.”

“Brett was amazing! Not only did he listen my groom and I, but he kept the party going all night. Everyone was saying how incredible the music choice was, when in fact Brett was the one making selections. We told him what genres and he went with it.
Brett had the great idea of having a dance off between girls and boys. It was an amazing idea seeing that most of the boys took their shirts off.
Even after the wedding was all said and done I later saw Brett at a function where who knew exactly who I was and even remember little details about the night that I had soon forgot. He even remembered one of my bridesmaid favorite song and then continued to play it while we were there.
I highly recommend Brett and Encore Mobile DJ! They made my day complete with non stop kick ass dancing!”
