Now I am not just writing about this topic because I am a wedding planner on the Cape, but rather because I take what my past brides, and even mother of the brides, say very seriously!
"I don't have a clue what people do without a wedding planner.” - Nancy C., Mother-of-the-bride
“We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and I'm certain it wouldn't have run so smoothly without your help." - Nikita C., Bride
“She was the single best investment I made. Jamie was an integral part of ensuring that our wedding went off without any problems.” - Erin S., Bride
Many Cape Cod brides are planning from off Cape and working a full time job. Wedding planners can help you by being your main point person on the Cape for all of your vendors, assist you with your time line starting the day you arrive, come up with new creative ideas and be in charge of the set-up and details the weekend of your wedding. Cape wedding planners also have huge vendor lists and can assist you in finding the perfect setting for your ceremony, a photographer that fits your style, a florist that will work with your budget and so much more.
It is most likely that you have never planned a wedding or an event on such a large scale with so many moving parts. By letting a professional wedding planner take the reigns and work with you throughout the process, he/she will learn your vision and execute your wedding perfectly so that you and your family can enjoy the day. The last thing you want to be doing the day of your wedding is running around in the sand setting up your ceremony, putting together your DIY centerpieces or answering calls from vendors who just hit bridge traffic!
And even though it will cost you to hire a planner, it will save you a ton of time, money (hopefully the same amount you pay them!) and stress. Even if you think you cannot fit a planner into your budget, it never hurts to look into it and ask for all options! Why not make a vacation out of your Cape Cod destination wedding too?
