Top Reason To Hire A Wedding Planner

One of the most joyous occasions in life is a wedding, a time when two people in love exchange those powerful words, “I Do”, which binds them legally as husband and wife. Although an exciting time of life, planning a wedding is also a very stressful time. For that reason, many people have discovered the benefits of hiring a professional coordinator to ensure everything comes together as it should.

1. Save money

Let a coordinator show you the ins and outs of saving money. Let us refer vendors that are in your price range, negotiate prices, helps you with a payment schedule that works well within your budget, and helps you create your perfect day!

2. Save time

Working with a coordinator saves you time in many areas. Already knowing and having a list of vendors and wedding venues will save you time so that you don't have to scout out and make trips to multiple venues. Each delicate detail is handled just for the Bride & Groom, attending to all those little details, making sure you are happy and satisfied!

3. Relieve stress & Burdens

The number one reason for hiring a wedding planner is to dramatically reduce the level of stress. Every wedding, even the best planned will have challenges. Unfortunately, when the bride and/or groom are the ones trying to handle all the obstacles along with everything else, they feel completely overwhelmed and suddenly, the enjoyment of wedding planning is out the door. With a professional planner, they supervise all of the events associated with your wedding so you no longer have to sweat the small (or big) stuff. That means everything from the delivery of the flowers, to the set up of the cake, to the limos arriving on time is taken care of for you. Let your wedding coordinator be your guide from beginning to end and act as a mediator. You enjoy while we do the work!

4. Advise & Adviser

Your wedding coordinator is there for any questions and concerns you have. We will be there to advise you and lead you along in the entire planning process. 5. “Day of” Management
Let your wedding coordinator make sure your entire day is ran perfectly & smoothly. Don’t rely on family, friends, or venue coordinators to make sure everything is in place. Let your day be enjoyable for you and your guests

6. Ideation and execution

Wedding planners provide expertise in conceptualization, planning, coordinating and executing all the wedding functions. In short, they take care of all your needs, right from the ideation stage to the final implementation. One of the major reasons why people hire wedding planners is that they can concentrate on the rituals and functions dedicatedly and enjoy the wedding, while professionals manage the event.

7. Supervision

They supervise all the events and pay personal attention to minute details. Wedding planners take on full responsibility of ensuring nothing is compromised upon. Being professionals, they have a methodological and systematic way of ensuring a flawless, memorable ceremony.

8. Professionalism

As skilled managers, they negotiate your payments and advice you about deposits, appointments, delivery schedules etc. Their approach to the whole function is professional, blended with a personal touch. They understand your wants and requirements and provide personalized advice that suits your needs the best.9. Good value for time and moneyConsidering the load they get off your back and amount of breathing space they provide you with, wedding planners definitely make their worth count. Add to it, you can enjoy all functions without having to worry about the sound, lights, music etc.

10. Financial Angle

They budget each aspect of the wedding, thus saving on other hidden costs. Often, there is a tendency to go over budget during weddings. No matter how much you tend to control, there are always some or the other hidden expenses that crop up unexpectedly. Wedding planners take care of this aspect as well by stringently following a pre-decided budget.

11. Creativity

Accept it, most of the guests get bored attending the functions. Apart from food, there isn't much they look forward to. Wedding planners can introduce the element of entertainment in our mundane ceremonies, thus making it an overall unforgettable event. They have ideas for all pre-marriage functions that are sure to have all your guests forget all about the food! By hiring a wedding planner, your ideas can be expounded on, enhancing your wedding.

12. Latest trends and Themes

Wedding planners are up-to-date with the latest trends in marriages. Yes, marriages also have trends and hence make a statement. Who doesn't want their weddings to be the best and the grandest? You have the resources, but no ideas. What will be so different about your wedding? Or the case maybe, you have a limited budget, yet want it to be a memorable wedding. That's where wedding planners step in with their innovative ideas and themes.

13. One stop shop

You don't have to run from pillar to post to make arrangements for the wedding. Wedding planners take care off all your needs. That is probably, one of the biggest advantages of hiring a wedding planner; you get all your needs under one roof. With wedding planners at the helm, all family members can relax and enjoy the wedding just like the guests.

14. Precise Detailing

For all weddings, there are so many small details that often, things get overlooked. One of the frustrations for the bride and groom is trying to maintain all of those details so the wedding goes off without a hitch. An experienced wedding planner knows all about the small details and has an outstanding ability of keeping track of them. He or she would sit down with the bride and/or groom and go over each aspect of the wedding, covering every possible angle so nothing is missed.

15.Insider Information

A huge benefit in hiring a wedding planner is that they know who the best of the best is. If you want a DJ, they can provide you with several top choices. If you want a catered meal, they can tell you exactly which caterer serves fabulous food at an affordable price, or if you want a horse drawn carriage to take you to the reception, they know who to call. For you, that means no time is wasted making phone call after phone call, only to walk away frustrated and empty handed.


Finally, hiring a wedding planner is an excellent idea if you want to save money. Because these professionals have connections with all types of people in the wedding industry, they can typically pass on excellent discounts to you. Keep in mind that does not affect the quality of the service, just the price.

Being A Wedding & Events Planner as Well as Designing

For those who don't know me, my name is Cheryll Wilson, and I proudly own Majestic Moments - "Bringing Elegance To Your Wedding & Occasions". Now for those who know me must wonder how I fell into this business because my degree and technology, and president of computer clubs and member of National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), computer head and also raised on music. Well after loosing my job offers and being turned down job interviews, I decided to do something for myself. The year I wasn't working I became an assistant for a friend of mine's wedding company and who was starting her own thing. Working with her for free, I loved the work, no matter how stressed and tired I was. And it so happen I realized I knew more then her. One of my older cousin years ago got me addicted to watching The Wedding Story on TLC. And I became a wedding junkie. Up to now I live, eat, and breathe weddings. All I watch is wedding shows, and anything about desiging and building, and home. Yes I'm an HGTV, WE, Oxygen, Style, TLC, Fine Living junkie!

I don't care for doing something I don't like doing for a long period of time. So last year while I was at work i started writing up my business plan, 56 pages long. WOMP! Still wasn't sure if I was going to do it though. I kept changing my mind back and forth. By April my boyfriend who's now my ex couldn't take it no more and said Cher I believe you can do it and dragged me to get my business certification from the local government office here in Long Island. As of May 11, my dad's birthday also day before Mothers Day.....Majestic Moments was born!

It's now 6 months later. In the past few months I've come along way so far, and still have a lot more to go. I'm very passionate about Majestic Moments and what we offer! All I talk about is wedding and events! It hurt a bit when I lost my first clients for weddings (I was getting hired for events, and weddings previous I've done were pro bono). But I've been blessed in my 6th month point that I've been blessed with clients now coming. From high profile to small budget weddings. Events for non profit associates and hopefully my alumni from my college will be coming through shortly.

I love what I do. I love making my clients happy, and parents proud! It's thier defining moment! It's the couples right of passage in life! I'm blessed and honored to make my clients day come true! I don't believe in stressed out bride and groom and frazzled parents. Let me take on the craziness, so you can remember every moment of your day. I wish for every couple to say at the end of the wedding night...."wow that was the best day every and wouldn't change a thing, let's do it again!"

Remember - It's Your Vision, Your Dream, Your Day!
