5 Couples Share Why They Hired a Wedding Planner

Hello! I’m Kelly and I’m a former wedding planner. Whenever I ask newlyweds if they have any wedding regrets, one of the top answers is this: “I wish I’d hired a wedding planner.” I’m particularly passionate about telling couples that a wedding planner (or a day-of coordinator if that better suits your budget!) is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. There are tons of reasons why professional help is priceless, but instead of me laying them out for you, I’ll let some real-life couples do the talking…

I can’t believe how much I enjoyed the planning of my wedding and this was down to the guys at Wed Advisor, they made everything so easy and fun. The discounts they secured for us saved us a lot of money. I loved the fact I could touch base at any time and ask questions. We loved having them available to us on the day of our wedding, I just had to see them to know everything was going as planned. Thanks Guys and anyone getting married should definitely talk to these guys.” – Niamh

“Ireland Elopement – My husband and I decided to get married in Ireland and didn’t know where to start. Thankfully, we found Stephen and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. Stephen helped us book a location, photographer, videographer, harpist, florist, hairstylist, and officiant. All of the vendors we worked with were amazing and it was the most magical day. I highly recommend Stephen to anyone looking to get married in Ireland!” – Alicia & Mark

The variety she shared was some that I don’t think I could have found on my own but fit the exact description I asked for. Super-fast turnaround, extremely friendly and efficient. Very happy, thank you Frances Saved me a lot of hours researching.” – Ann Marie & Aidan

“I don’t usually send “Thank Yous” in advance of something like this but I just had to tell you this today. So the reason I’m sending you this note is to give a very big thank you for being all over it and taking such great care of us. You get me the follow up information the next day and sometimes it seems too fast and it pushes me to get things done. I deal with hotel managers and planners all the time and some of them just don’t get it. You get it – thank you Jill.” – Happy Client
