Why You Absolutely Need a Wedding Planner


Hello, brides-to-be! There are a million reasons why you should be going to our July Wedding Show, but just in case you need some more convincing, we’ve got some of Northeast Ohio’s wedding experts opinions on why you should be there, too!

We know that it can be a bit overwhelming when you walk into a convention center and see over 50 wedding vendors there. Where should you start? What questions should you ask? What trends should you look for? Luckily for you, we got some of the July Show vendors to give you their best advice and directions they see growing!

We firmly believe that on your wedding day you can either be the bride, or you can be the wedding planner. It’s tough to be both! You want to be relaxed, excited, and living-in-the-moment on your wedding day – not rushing around perfecting final details and taking calls from your caterer! However, choosing to trust a planner with your wedding isn’t so easy. “I tell clients to be picky when selecting a wedding planner. You are trusting one of the most important days in your life to a complete stranger! Your top priority should be to find someone you click with, who can see what you are saying, and takes the time to get to know you as a couple AND individual,” says Dream Weddings and Events. Because this is your day and you want it executed flawlessly, don’t hold back with your requests! Though no one wants to be a bridezilla, “The client and planner should be in sync. Both should be able to be honest in their responses, not guarded or worried about offending the other.”

Hiring a wedding planner can also inspire you with new ideas! Because they help with dozens of weddings a year, they’ve seen the newest trends and unique ways to incorporate them into your big day! For instance, “An awesome new trend I’ve seen lately is locking the bride’s bouquet in a box or cage, rather than throwing it. All single ladies are given a key upon their arrival at the reception. Throughout the evening guest are reminded to try their keys. The owner of the key that opens the box gets the bouquet.”

You can meet consultants from Dream Weddings and Events at our July 8th Show! They (and others) will be present to give more advice and answer any of your questions! Be sure to stop by your favorite vendors’ booths to see what trends they can help you execute flawlessly!
