What do wedding planners do?
If you’ve kept up with our blog, you know by now that we love our all inclusive wedding packages in Houston. We completely believe that this is key to a successful, stress-free day. The secret in the sauce to this success is the wedding planner! All inclusive wedding venues will host a variety of vendors and inclusions in pre-selected packages but the fact that your wedding will come with its own coordinator will save you so much stress and will help your day go as smoothly and perfectly as possible.

Often times, a planner is one of the first things to get cut because of the extra cost it adds to the overall wedding budget. An enormous benefit to having an all inclusive wedding is that the planner is included in the price. But what exactly does a wedding planner do? We are here to answer you – they do almost everything!
- Initial Consultation – Your planner will be the one that takes you on your first tour of the venue and discuss all of the logistics – time of day, guest list size, décor, venue capabilities.
- The Big Picture – Wedding planners are known for their attention to detail, but their job is to get those details to make up a killer end result. Do you want a rustic barn wedding? Your planner will pull together hundreds of seemingly minor details to create the perfect setting for your event. A significant bonus to a planner at an all-inclusive venue is that they have done their fair share of weddings in this location and know the ins and outs and every detail of the space required to help you pull off the wedding of your dreams! Chances are, they may have done it before.

- The Middle Man – Your planner serves as your neutral voice. Are you having issues with one of your vendors, your planner can provide an impartial viewpoint for both sides. He or she will work to get your needs met while ensuring a fair outcome.
- The Point Man – One of the most difficult aspects of planning a wedding is all the cooks in the kitchen, so to speak. You have your vendors, who all want to be in charge of their aspect of the wedding, the bride, the groom…the mothers, all who have their own input and opinions on the wedding. But your planner is the one who knows this business. He or she knows what works and what your venue can accommodate, especially if you are at an all inclusive venue. Say your future mother-in-law has an idea of what seating should look like, but your planner knows 1) you don’t like it and 2) there are better ways to arrange the room. Your planner can explain the best solution and best arrangements. He or she is the go-to when it comes to big decisions.
