Today we have Mary from Turning Point Events taking over the blog today talking about why every bride should hire a wedding planner! We truly believe that Mary’s tip on hiring a wedding day planner is a good one.
“Many brides and clients ask, “Why would I hire a planner?” Most of our clients have never planned a wedding before. Yes, it is something you can do on your own; however, taking on the wedding planner role could actually end up costing you more money, time, effort, and maybe even your sanity. A great wedding planner is not just a resource for finding vendors, although we will help you do that. A great wedding planner is a person that you trust to come along side you as a couple to help you navigate the wild adventure of engagement. Your wedding planner is there to eliminate the stress of the unknown and uncover the joy of celebrating your new life together. And as he or she grows to understand your vision for your wedding, will assemble a team of vendors to execute your vision flawlessly, stepping in to handle any potential missteps so you never have to think or worry about it. From knowing what makes a good DJ, to what do to do if it is snowing on the day of your event, an experienced planner or coordinator brings wisdom, resourcefulness, and calm efficiency to situations that could be overwhelming otherwise.
What is the most important thing to consider when hiring a planner? We believe the most important factor is to make sure the planner is a good fit for you. Each planner has a unique personality and way of doing business. We love our couples and they love us. We are purposeful in who we work with because we want to enjoy the process with you! There are a lot of good planners out there, but not every planner is the right fit for you.
Best piece of wedding planning advice – Don’t skip the premarital counseling! Even if you’ve been together for years, good premarital counseling can help you navigate some sticky subjects and will facilitate good, healthy conversations to get your marriage started off on the right foot!
What is the most important thing you should know about Turning Point Events? I love what I do! I never take it for granted when someone chooses to work with us because I know what a big deal it is to trust someone else to execute your day for you. I have been a bride and a mother of the bride so I have experience and understanding from many different angles. I look forward to getting to know my couples and the dreams they have for their wedding and life beyond the wedding planning process.”

-Megan, Mother of the Bride, Spring 2019 Wedding
“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!"
