Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Professional Wedding Planner

Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Professional Wedding Planner

Their Specialty is to Plan Weddings

Some people rely on family and friends to help plan their wedding. Here’s the reality; your family and friends are NOT wedding planners. In fact, your friends have a life of their own and their personal lives can get in the way of planning your special event. That is why you need to hire someone whose only job is to help plan your wedding. I can guarantee you that a wedding planner will put you, your loved ones, and the wedding as their number one priority.

Wedding Planners Take Care of Everything So That You Don’t Have To

The best thing about professional wedding planners is the fact that they know what they are doing. They help take care of invitations, picking out a design/color scheme, making payments to vendors, and so much more. There are things that could possibly go wrong at a very undesirable moment, but no worries! Your wedding planner is there to take care of any situation that could possibly happen minutes before your wedding.

Wedding Planners Save you Money

Some people worry about the cost of hiring a wedding planner. But what many people don’t realize is the fact wedding planners are always on your side. They work with your budget to make sure you get everything that you want on your special night. Planners receive wholesale prices and should pass the savings along to their couples. Believe it or not, you will spend less with a wedding planner as opposed to planning a wedding on your own.

Wedding Planners are Great Negotiators

Professional wedding planners have the ability to make good deals. They have experience doing that from previous weddings. In fact, they will not stop until you get what you want. They also have connections with multiple vendors that could be used during your wedding. If you plan your wedding on your own, you will not know which vendor to choose or which one gives you the best deal.

Wedding Planners Take Away Stress

Wedding planning isn’t easy. There are so many little details that need to be considered and done. Couples that plan weddings by themselves will realize that planning such a huge event can be very stressful and exhausting. They may even begin to argue in the process of planning. That is why it is important to hire someone who will help organize and plan everything so that you and your family don’t have to stress over it.


So relax. It’s your special night. You should be 100% present at your wedding. Hiring the right and professional wedding planner will make your wedding amazing and stress free!

Top Must-Haves for your Next Summer Party

Top Must-Haves for your Next Summer Party

Summer is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to throw a party? Whether you want to celebrate a graduation or have a get together in your backyard, summer parties are always a good idea. Here are the top must-haves to make your next summer party one to remember.

Food Trucks

Instead of having a barbecue, why not rent multiple food trucks? I’m sure that there are many food truck owners who are willing to cater at your party in order to expand their business. Your guests get to have a wide variety of delicious food and you don’t have to cook anything. I mean who doesn’t enjoy tasty food truck food?

Photo Booth

Photo booths are a great way to laugh and joke around with friends. You can either rent one or make one on your own. If you do decide to make your own photo booth, make sure you have a camera, a tripod, a backdrop, and silly accessories. You can email the funny photos to your friends afterwards.


Hiring a DJ is probably one of the most common things to do when throwing a party. DJs always tend to liven up the party and get everyone out of their seats. I mean who doesn’t like to get up and dance to great music? Also, make sure that you hire a DJ that plays the music that you want at your party. I mean, what’s a fun party without great music?


Ice Cream Bar

An ice cream bar is perfect for the summer! What’s a better way to attract guests than your very own ice cream bar? It is very cute and really easy to make. All you need is an outdoor freezer to store the ice cream and a table with all sorts of toppings. You can get creative with the toppings, such as getting crushed graham crackers, mini marshmallows, or even gummy worms. Your guests will definitely enjoy their delicious creations.


One cool idea is to have a projector at your summer party. The good thing about a projector is that you can display movies, videos, and photos. Now the projector does not have to be indoors, it could be outdoors! This is perfect for high school graduation parties. There is no better way to reminisce on good times with friends than watching old videos and photos displaying on a huge screen.

Beautiful Lighting

I cannot stress how important lighting is, especially for outdoor parties. You should get creative with the lighting you use at your party. Instead of having regular light bulbs on a wall, why not use stream lights? Stream lights always look magical and beautiful. Also, light-up objects are so cool for nighttime parties. The good thing about this is that they could literally be used for anything. In fact, you can even use even use them as party favors. You could have a light-up bar, light-up utensils, or glowing sticks and necklaces for the dance floor; the list goes on!
