You may have heard before that wedding planning is stressful, or maybe you’re experiencing that to be true right now. When it comes to coordinating an event as big as your wedding day, there are a lot of moving parts to organize, details to remember and energy spent on every to-do list item.
If you’re starting to wonder whether or not you should hire a wedding planner, here’s the short answer: yes, you should. And here’s why.
No matter what industry you work in or what your passions are, if you are a busybody with a hectic year already, wedding planning might simply be too much to add on to your already overworked schedule. Let a wedding coordinator help take off some of your load so that you can still do the work you love while having a professional keep your wedding to-do list on track.
Although many couples often brush off the idea of a wedding planner early on in the process, more often than not they wish they had some extra help when all is said and done. And I get it: hiring another person is yet another expense, and it can seem unnecessary if you want to do all the preparations and research on your own.
However, those who do have wedding planners are often less stressed, enjoy the process more, find better wedding vendors, and have someone there to take care of any last-minute problems.
While this may seem counter-intuitive to your end goal, planners can actually help you stay within your budget more easily. Not only can they help you find vendors within (or below!) your ideal budget, they can help talk you through the process of deciding which parts of your big day are worth spending more on, and which parts you might be able to cut back on.
Bonus: some of them may even be able to get you a vendor discount with people they work with often!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
