There is a reason wedding planners exist, and we’re here to explain why a wedding planner is worth every penny. Like many things in life, you want to be able to hand your task over to a professional, someone who is an expert in XYZ field, and knows what they’re doing. Just like you visit a Dr when you’re sick or take your car to a professional mechanic when the engine light turns on. Wedding planners review logistics and plan weddings all day everyday, and their experience can transform your entire planning process! While you may see happy brides or grooms leave reviews saying their planner was the best investment on their wedding day, you might still be wondering why.
Most couples have never planned a wedding or even a large event before. A lot goes into each wedding. Knowing exactly what to do, when to do it, and what’s reasonable can be difficult! A wedding planner will handle all of that for you. From keeping you on track of your planning timeline, to making sure you are booking professional vendors and getting good value for the amount you’re spending. A wedding planner will ensure your venue fits your guest count, that it can cover all of your needs, or be able to help you source any missing pieces like chairs and tables if they aren’t provided. Wedding planners know all the ins and outs of our local wedding industry, and want what’s best for our couples.
Finding your perfect vendors goes beyond finding someone who is available on your date. You want to find someone who matches your personality and budget. As Austin wedding planners, we work with different vendors all the time. We know who truly has the expertise in their field, who couples love, and who will fit within your budget!
At BNCO, when we first start working with our couples, we’ll discuss all your needs and wants for your wedding. We not only use this information to help create your wedding budget but also to recommend your dream team of vendors who match your style and personality. While all of our couples get access to our Preferred Vendors List, full planning couples receive customized recommendations. Did I mention we’ll also handle vendor communication? You can sit back and relax, and not have to worry about communicating with a ton of vendors.

Many couples know what they like, but aren’t quite sure how to tie it all together. Maybe you love the latest boho trend, but also love classic white roses and greenery. We’ll help you narrow down what resonates with you the most, and make sure it all ties in together to create a beautiful wedding day and a seamless design. This doesn’t mean you have to go all out and spend tons on decor. We work with all styles, from the most minimal and simplistic to fun and funky. We’ll create a custom design board for you to visualize the whole day, from your welcome table, to your ceremony site, and all the way to your guests place settings. On top of creating your design board, we provide specific vendor recommendations. This means if you see a lounge set on your design board that you have to have, we’ll tell you exactly where to get it.
Your wedding planner will be the first vendor you hire, or come second after your venue. This means we will be with you every step of the way. Since the average couple doesn’t plan events or weddings for a living, the planning process will be full of new things you’ve never have done before, which means you will have tons of questions! Your wedding planner is by your side to help with each step. We are able to guide you on ceremony start time based on your photos needed and sunset time, whether to do a plated dinner or buffet, explain the difference between a head or a king’s table, and the list goes on. As your wedding planner we serve as an unbiased but honest opinion. Sometimes it can be tricky asking family or friends for their thoughts. Everyone can have a different opinion, and it’s hard to decide what works best for you as a couple. Wedding planners will help you sort through all the advice and opinions you’re bound to receive along the way, and often times can advise you on how to politely decline an idea you aren’t a fan of, too!
Last but not least, wedding planners will oversee the entire wedding day. Your wedding planner will typically be the first vendors on site, other than hair and makeup. We oversee everything from vendor set-up, to guiding you through formalities and monitoring break-down at the end of the night. Wedding planners will pin your boutonnieres on, and fluff your wedding dress and veil one last time before you head down the aisle. If anything pops up throughout the day that you, a vendor, family member or friend needs help with, your wedding planner will be there to take care of it. For example, we come with a full “emergency kit,” stocked with your basic first aid kit, a stain removing pen, mini sewing kit, and even some snacks, just in case.
At the end of the day, your wedding planner is your professional partner throughout your entire planning process. Think of us as an advisor. Wedding planners are worth every penny because they are 100% on your side, making sure everything is on track and that you’re getting the best bang for your buck. We truly want you to enjoy your engagement, have the best wedding day, and start your marriage off on an excited and relaxed note.
