With the economy taking a nose dive the trend has been for a lot of brides to scale back on spending and mainly coordinate and plan their weddings themselves. Wedding Planners do charge a fee for their services but some brides don't see the benefits. Wedding Planners are a tremendous help in working out a budget, day of wedding coordination and helping brides realize their wedding day dreams. Any thoughts on this?

My wedding planner is my savior. I am in constant communication with her. I found that my family and friends add extra stress to this whole process!! She even saved me from spending a boatload of $ on extra photographer/photobooth by telling me about this new mobile app called Capsule (capsulecam) that allows me to get all my guests photos in one place, instantly. I've played around with it. www.capsuleweddings.com 


Thanks for sharing this link and I think I have clients who will like this service.  

We love brides who love their coordinators!  I'm sure that she loves working with you as well.

no problem! How's summer shaping up?

a wedding planner would be definitly helpful, but people like DIY, too

people like DIY until they realize just how much work it really is to pull it off!  Its the one time (hopefully!) that you will have a special event like this and the mantra should always be - the budget the budget the budget - its the driver for everything.  Think of it like this - do you want to pull  your teeth yourself or go to the dentist? Naturally you want to go to the dentist because they are the professionals.  Its the same with planners - granted not all planners are created equally but the right planner for the right bride is out there - trust me.  When the planner is in sync with the bride and vice versa, it makes for beautiful music and a happy, glowing, unexhausted from trying to do it all herself thinking its easy and saves her money but really doesn't, bride.

As a Sonoma wedding photographer I love when the couple hires a wedding planner. This keeps the day on schedule and takes a lot of responsibility off of my shoulders to make sure things are moving along. I think my clients also enjoy having a planner, as they take a lot of worry off of the couple when they just want to be having fun.

yes its really very useful to finished the weddings successfully and the The Wine Wrangler can provide your Wedding or Event with the most reliable shuttle service on the Central Coast. Please contact us directly so that we may cater our quote to your event.

Most certainly I find wedding planners useful. It is always better to have the services of an experienced professional instead of taking pains of DIY. It's same if you decided to design your own house instead of using an architect. One may get the aesthetics right, but the technical.. may be not. And since weddings don't have retakes, I would rather hire a professional then try and do it by myself.

YES! Resoundingly YES.

A wise man can tell you that Wedding Planners can be useful or can destroy the cherries memories from the first day of a new couple.

Don't shoot me, let me explain.

Wedding Planner can be useful for:

  • - accommodation/travel in/to an unknown location;
  • - all kind of flower arrangement;
  • - menu recommendation or selection.
  • - and so on.

I Do not recommend Bride and Groom to ask Wedding Planners for Band Musician, for Photographer or Cameraman.

  • Bride and Groom should chose by their visual desire a photographer (there are few important wedding associations, like WPJA or ISPWP): Photographer is a person witch will tell every wedding story in images over the year. That is family cherries memories for next generations. Remember that a lot of brides remain in contact with wedding photographer for their Trash the Dress Photo Session, for other family anniversary and events.
  • Bride and Groom should chose cameraman after they like previously movies of this.
  • Bride and Groom should chose by their taste musicians to feel good with friend in love of specific kind or music.

So, I recommend to work with wedding planners for some services, and to chose by their feelings photographer, cameraman, musicians. 

Be in a good light!

Compared to services such as photographer, videographer, transport, flowers, the cost of a wedding planner can be less than for the others, but can be invaluable on the day to bring the whole event together, to ensure everything runs smoothly, to check all the details, to help with those little last minute things, to assist the guests!   A wedding planner wears 'many hats'  , from making sure the ceremony starts and everyone is in the right place, to assisting a little bridesmaid who has fallen over.  Many brides want to remain in control and do everything themselves, this is such a big mistake - it means they can't relax and enjoy the most important event of their lives.  It can be hard to hand over to another person, but honestly in my experience - we can literally 'save the day'.
