Wedding Planners – who are they? What does that entail? What does an Ackin Events Wedding Planner provide? This is an in-depth look at some inclusions you will find when working with an Ackin Events Wedding Planner. As you are researching about your upcoming wedding, or maybe someone you know has an upcoming wedding and you’re assisting, this information will shed some light on a hot topic within the wedding industry – what exactly do Wedding Planners do?

While we are focusing specifically on Ackin Events planners and how they assist you when you hire us, there are similarities between us and other companies. We would love to work with you, and help you have the best day! But we also know, finding a Wedding Planner that you connect with and can work well with is the most important step. Use this information to book services with Ackin Events, or use this information to choose a different Wedding planner that fits your needs best. Either way, we only care that you have the most magical wedding day – and that starts with finding the perfect Wedding Planner!

What IS a Wedding Planner?

A Wedding Planner is defined as someone who plans and organizes weddings as a profession. This person is usually involved in the planning process from the beginning stages. They are someone you can trust to steer you in the right direction, and someone who helps keep all the details and plans organized and easily understandable for you.

Wedding planners usually will come into your planning process between 6 and 12 months before your wedding. There is a lot to cover, so this gives them the time to provide all the necessary services to be a great benefit to you through the wedding planning process.

What do Wedding Planners do?

Each vendor is different, but at the simplest level, a Wedding Planner walks a couple through the entire wedding process. This can include picking a venue and vendors, communications with everyone involved, keeping an organized calendar of events for the couple, ensuring payments to vendors are made on time, and helping the day of the wedding.

This is not an all-inclusive list of duties for a Wedding Planner, but it does highlight what Ackin Events focuses on. At the very core, a Wedding Planner is your right-hand person for your wedding. Here at Ackin Events, we believe that getting married should be an experience you get to enjoy like any other guest! Just because you are “hosting” this event for their friends and family, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to enjoy it stress-free. I mean, come on, it is YOUR wedding! Why not Enjoy the Experience?

Remember, you get what you pay for! Wedding planning packages can be more expensive (when compared to a Day-Of Coordinator), but you’re paying for stress-free wedding planning!

How can Ackin Events Wedding Planners help you?

Well, for starters, we have two amazing packages that are inclusive of all your wedding planning needs, based on the time we enter the process. Each package includes day-of involvement to make sure your event runs smoothly from the time we start our services, to the end of your wedding day!

Start by evaluating your needs. Where are you at in the planning process? Are you at the very beginning and your head is spinning with all the possibilities? Maybe, you have an idea of what you want, you just don’t know where to start or how to narrow down options? Our Full-Service Planning package will fit you best. We start with you from the very beginning and take your through the entire planning process. The package includes up to 12 planning meetings with you in preparation for your big day, and up to 14 hours on the day of your wedding to ensure everything goes as planned.

Let’s say maybe you’re through some of the planning, but you’re stuck. Maybe you’ve gotten to a point where some stress and panic has set in and you really just need someone to take you to the finish line. Our Partial Planning package will get you there! We will assist with any vendors that still need to be contracted and attend your venue final walkthrough (this package would be selected if your venue was already picked). The package includes up to 6 planning meetings, and up to 12 hours on the day of your wedding.

What’s Next?

As you think about whether or not you want a Wedding Planner, take into consideration what you’d really be getting. On top of the inclusions listed, you’d also be getting stress-free wedding planning, not being the point of contact for vendor questions or setting up décor, and the chance to actually enjoy your wedding day and participate fully. Remember the intangible things that make wedding planners worth it!
