Why We Didn’t Hire a Wedding Planner but Wish We Had!

dissapointed bride who didn't hire a wedding planner for her Colorado weddingI came across this great article “Why We Didn’t Hire a Wedding Planner… But Wish We Had”  and wanted to share it with all our Denver wedding band brides!  It is a different way of approaching the “Should we hire a planner?” debate and I think you may find it helpful.

Narrow Gauge has performed our country and classic rock hits at hundreds of weddings!  I have seen first hand, over and over again, how important a planner can be.  However, at my son’s wedding I saw it from a different perspective:  As the Father of the Groom!

My sons fiancé chose not to hire an event planner.  As the big day got closer, I could see how utterly stressed out she and her mom were over little things.  On the day of the wedding, her mom spent the whole reception supervising all the vendors and doing the work of a planner.  She missed the party!  Talking about the wedding a few weeks after that awesome day,  she told me “I wish I had hired a planner, I just thought I could do it all and save money.”

6 months later, at my daughters Colorado wedding, we hired a day of planner and it made all the difference in the world.  Even though the band performed at the wedding reception, I was able to enjoy everything and my wife and daughter were much less stressed!  The wedding coordinator was worth every penny and more!  Now, I help plan and pull off about 30 weddings every year, so I have a lot of experience doing this stuff.  You probably don’t have that same experience, so you have to weigh how much you think you can take on.  If your budget will allow you to hire a wedding and event planner for the whole time, my counsel is to do that.

Of course, when you hire Narrow Gauge to turn your wedding into the party of a lifetime, I am going to help oversee things at your reception.  I will work with your other vendors to help keep things on track so you can focus on being a bride and groom and enjoy the party!  But there will be a lot more moving pieces than just the party.

I hope the article is a helpful resource for you!
