5 Reasons to Hire a Certified Wedding Planner:

1. It’s simply not your thing.

You’re not anti-ceremony. You’re just not a party planner. Yes, you have friends who loved combing shops and websites finding antique bud vases for every table at the reception, haggling with caterers, making schedules and lists. That’s not you. You’re looking forward to gathering family and friends together for a joyful, memorable celebration. You’d just like someone else to arrange it, please.

2. Argh! No time!

You and your partner have commitments that keep you busy around the clock. Your job, your family, your hobbies. You have a full plate. Are you going to use your vacation days to plan your wedding, or go on your honeymoon?

3. You want to save money.

That’s right. Hiring a wedding planner can actually save you money. Wedding planners help you create a budget, then make sure you stick to it. I have relationships with vendors, I know when prices are inflated, I know where to find discounts, I know who to trust.

4. You want to avoid “Favour Fatigue”.

It’s one month to the Big Day. Your best friends are screening your calls. If you ask them to “just swing by” one more shop they’ll probably disown you. Don’t put the burden of getting your wedding organized onto your loved ones. They should get to your wedding day feeling the same way you do: excited, relaxed, and not over-taxed.

5. You’re Not From Around Here, Are You...

You don’t live in the Okanagan, but you know it’s a beautiful place to hold a wedding. Maybe you’re separated from Kelowna by a time zone (or two, or three), or perhaps you’re just new to the city. I know the lay of the land. I have firsthand knowledge of venues, vendors, hidden gems and local favourites. I can provide maps, directions, and recommendations for you and your out-of-town guests so nobody feels like a stranger on the Big Day.
