Why Hire A Wedding Planner?

Find out the benefits of hiring a wedding planner here. At Samantha Burke Events we can help save you time, money and stress to ensure you have the best day of your life. 


As a seasoned event and wedding planner a lot of people ask us 'What are the real benefits of hiring a planner' ... here we list some of the benefits of bringing in a pro to help with your day.



The average wedding takes over 250 hours to organise. That's a lot of time. In today's busy world we're often already juggling careers, family, friends, hobbies, keeping fit, eating healthy, raising families, looking after fur babies, and all the existing life admin that comes in between. A wedding planner can take hours of planning off your hands so you can focus on other areas of your life and keep a balance. 


Hiring a planner can help you save money on other elements of the actual event. As we regularly work with suppliers and vendors we're able to negotiate and get preferential rates which one time clients just don't get. In addition we can ensure that you're thinking everything through before you make any big financial decisions that may end up costing you more in the long term. Wedding planners make your budget work harder - and as it's part of our job we can help you make sure you stay within budget by taking emotional decisions off the table. By hiring a planner you will get the best wedding for your budget. 


We live and breathe weddings and events. We know the tricks of the trade and it is our job to make sure that your wedding or event is TRUELY amazing. We will recommend little touches that you wouldn't even think of. We know suppliers that are reputable, reliable and the best at what they do. We know the venues that are best suited for your style of wedding. Quite simply we know how to get the job done and we make sure it's done well. Amazingly well. 


When it all comes down to the day the reality is you can't be in two places at once. Even if you've not needed a planner until the final hour an on the day co-ordinator is worth their weight in gold. Need to make sure the venue is set up the way you want it? Check. Need to let suppliers into a space the morning of? Check.  Need to make sure your granny gets a seat on the first row? Check. Need someone to call the florist when they're running 10 minutes late? Check... Just kidding, if you have a co-ordinator you won't even know the florist is running late. You've spent unto a year organising your special day. So enjoy it.
