Is a wedding/event designer right for you? 

If you fit into anyone of these five  categories of then the answer might be YES.


1. Do you have a job that requires a lot of your time? Or do you just have a lot on your plate in general? A consultant will help you schedule meetings with vendors (or even attend the meetings for you!), pick out linens and invitations, and take care of the other tasks that you just don't have time for.

Since wedding/event consultants are professionals, they know the industry much better than the average person. With that in mind, they know exactly where to go to get the services and products that you want, which will cut down on the time you spend searching for what you like.

2. Hiring a wedding/event consultant is a great idea for people who are having an out of town occasion, whether it's in a different city or country. If you're miles or time zones away from the location, it'll be helpful to hire someone who's familiar with the area as well as local vendors and venues.

Not only will a consultant help you get more bang for your buck, he or she will also be able to represent you at meetings with your vendors before the big day. A consultant who has knowledge of the area is also handy for helping organize all of the details you'll need to cover for your guests, such as hotel accommodations, welcome baskets, maps and directions, and a list of fun things for them to do during their downtime.

3. Trying to plan a wedding on a small budget? Although it seems like hiring a wedding/event coordinator is counter intuitive, it will actually help you save money in the long run.

Your consultant will work with you to set a budget and then help you stick to it, stretching your dollar as far as it will go. Not a big fan of monogrammed napkins but can't do without an ice sculpture as the buffet centerpiece? By understanding what's important to you, a wedding planner can also help you determine what items can be cut from the budget so you can afford to get what you want. Because most wedding planners have special relationships with vendors, they won't just get you the best deal in town -- they'll also help you rest easy knowing you're working with reliable companies.

If you can't afford to hire a consultant to help you during the entire process, it's acceptable to bring one in halfway through your planning period or even just on your big day. This way, you can still benefit from the services of a consultant without the total expense.

4. So, your best friend spent days picking out the perfect shade of Tiffany blue for the fondant on the wedding cake. And your sister interviewed six seamstresses before choosing one to alter her dress. But you just aren't the kind of girl who's excited about hopping from store to store picking out party favors and centerpieces.

That's OK! A consultant is sure to take the things off your hands that you're not interested in doing yourself. Your consultant will get to know your tastes so the wedding is tailored around your personality from the start.

It's your consultant's job to take care of as many details as you want, and since you're paying for the service, take advantage of having the professional help.

The key is to have fun while organizing your event, so have a consultant take care of the dirty work so you can enjoy your event.

5. Does the thought of planning a wedding or formal event stress you out? Sure, there are a lot of details and things to think about, but planning an event should be fun! Having a consultant can ease the stress that you may feel during the planning process. A consultant will help you keep a timeline, stick to your budget and do the heavy-lifting so you can spend your time at hair and makeup trials or clinking champagne glasses.

Especially on the actual day, it's convenient to have someone on hand to fix any issues that come up (and there are bound to be a few!). You shouldn't have to worry about the missing centerpiece for the guest of honor, sewing a button on the groom's tux, or finding your grandmother's corsage -- you should be having the time of your life! After all, planning your wedding or event(and enjoying it) is the No. 1 priority on your to-do list.
