Heyy ladies! So my wedding is June 2021 and i was speaking to a lady that i was looking to hire as my wedding planner but she got kind of snippy with me. She’s a wedding planner, florist and cake designer. So she was wanting to do all of that for me. But the venue i have is catering the food and my mother bought our cake at a well known bakery. And she really got bent out of shape when i said i was wanting fake flowers instead of real flowers because of my budget. So i was only needing her as a design stand point and to help with scheduling everything. But she got upset and said for me to think about if I’m really needing her services. So what are the pros and cons to planning your own wedding? Because at this point it seems like that’s what I’ll be doing.

    I planned everything and it was fun and I got to pick what I wanted. A day of coordinator would probably be good because it was hard to get everything set up and talk with vendors the night before/morning of.

    I’m planning my own wedding. Simply because of costs. I️ also Want things to go a certain way. Day if I’m definitely going to have a designated “stage manager” 🤣 (I️ work in theater so this term feels like home to me). They will make sure everything runs smoothly. But it will be a joint effort and I will have a strict schedule to go by.

    At this point it doesn't sound like you really need her. Maybe you can look for a day of coordinator. I did everything myself but had a doc

    I am having a small elopement with a couple of guests but I am planning all my own. I have planned plenty of events in my sorority to a larger crowd as well as for my job as a teacher so I can do it myself. Mostly I just would not give my money to someone that will act like that with me. You're paying her and she acts like you need her. Fine having a planner but find someone else that can be professional. Maybe a day of coordinator like someone else suggested.

    Girl I had to think twice if I wanted to hire one but in all reality what do they do? They charge for everything and anything. Really it’s a waist of money in my opinion.

    We are planning out everything for our day. One of my aunts volunteered to help coordinate the wedding day. Which helps a lot.
