Why Hire a Professional Wedding Planner?
As professionals, we know the importance of being organized and prepared for whatever may happen, and happen it will! Unlike planning a wedding in the “big city” with plenty of choices and options, remote destination weddings can be a challenge in areas with VERY limited resources. Weather is another important factor and should it rain or snow or do both at the same time you will want to have a back-up plan in place. As expert planners and coordinators in the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Grand Circle area for over 20 years, we know who to call, where to go and how to make sure your wedding dreams come true no matter what happens.
In October of 2013, we had 7 wedding planned for the beginning of the month when the US government announced that they were closing ALL national parks because they failed to pass a spending budget. In one day, we moved, rebooked and re-planned all of those weddings. We were able to help our couples still make their nature wedding dreams come true and everything went well. That is why you hire a professional planner and coordinator, we know what we are doing out here and we know everyone. That is why hiring a professional planner for a destination wedding is such a grand idea.
If you really don’t have time and you have the budget, hiring a professional planner can save you the headache of trying to put all the pieces together yourself. Imagine the peace of mind you would have knowing everything is taken care of and all you need to do is arrive and enjoy your wedding day. What is peace of mind worth?
If you enjoy the planning process but would like to have a coordinator on site to manage your wedding day festivities we are also available to make sure everything is set, ready and as you envisioned it. In 2014, we helped 52 couples make their extreme nature weddings a reality, let us help you too, we love sharing all that we know.
