Hey, there! Ruth here. I am the passionate creative mind behind SPC Wedding & Event Mgt. You found this page because you are curious about who a wedding planner is and what a wedding planner does. I am so excited to share with you a little bit about the role of a wedding planner and what we offer couples as an Austin wedding planning company.

What is the Role of a Wedding Planner?

A wedding planner is your resource to guide you through the wedding planning process. They are your counsel for every vendor interview you attend, contract you are asked to sign, and decision you need to make. When you find the right wedding planner for you, they become your best friend who not only understands your wedding vision but who can make it come to life. They are your therapist who is always ready to listen and help you solve problems, reducing stress and anxiety and giving you peace of mind before, during, and after your wedding. All in all, the role of a wedding planner is to make your wedding experience as fun and stress-free as possible from start to finish.

Do You Really Need a Wedding Planner?

Ask any wedding planner, and they will tell you, “Yes, of course!” But we don’t just say this because it is what we do for a living. There are so many benefits of hiring the right wedding planner. Here are just a few.

1. The Right Wedding Planner is a SoothSayer

With years of experience designing, planning, and managing weddings, wedding planners know what to expect. They know what issues are likely to arise before you are even aware of them. Because of this, they can offer solutions before a potential problem becomes an actual problem.

2. The Right Wedding Planner is a Trend-Setter

At SPC, we believe there is only one rule when it comes to wedding style and design: your style must prevail. This is your special day as a couple. It is literally all about you. So every single detail and decision should be made from the lens of whether or not it is what you and your fiancé want for your wedding.

While it is definitely important to include your family and friends in the process–and as a wedding planner, I will always share my thoughts and ideas with you–at the end of the day, the most important thing is that you are happy. And the right wedding planner will do everything they can to make that happen.

3. The Right Wedding Planner Knows the Ins-and-Outs of the Industry

An experienced wedding and event planner makes all the difference when it comes to wedding planning. Planning an event can be extremely stressful, there is no doubt about that. But working with a wedding planner who has industry knowledge and relationships can make the process easier and more fun.

4. The Right Wedding Planner Makes Your Wedding Day Go Off Without a Hitch

Or so it seems… The truth is, there are always day-of surprises and issues that arise. Whether the caterer got lost on his way to the venue or it decided to rain in the middle of August, nothing ever goes exactly as planned. But when you have the right wedding planner by your side, your wedding day isn’t compromised by unexpected challenges. In fact, in some cases, you won’t even know the challenges arose until after the wedding because your planner seamlessly and strategically fixed the issue before it even became one.

What Does Wedding Planning Include?

Every wedding planning company is different when it comes to the exact services they offer couples. And if you’re wondering, “how much does a wedding planner cost?” the answer to that question varies as well. This is what we can tell you: the average cost of a wedding in Texas is nearly $25,000. But whatever your budget is, we have planning packages available to fit your needs. Here’s just a glimpse of what we offer as an Austin wedding planner.

The Silver Package - Partial Wedding Planning Service

Our partial wedding planning package is ideal for couples with a smaller budget who have most, if not all, of their wedding details solidified before hiring a planner. While we are still your best friend/therapist/problem solver, with partial planning, we only get to be those things for a few weeks leading up to and on your wedding day.

With partial planning, our goal is to make sure everything you planned goes as planned. Now if making all of the wedding decisions on your own sounds overwhelming and time-consuming to you, no worries! That’s what our full service package is for.

The Gold Package - Full Service Planning

Our full service wedding planning package is ideal for couples who want their engagement and wedding planning experience to be as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. With SPC by your side the entire time, there isn’t one wedding decision you have to make on your own. And when it comes to the (let’s be honest) more “boring” and time-consuming aspects of planning, like scheduling vendor arrival times and coordinating hotel bookings and transportation for out-of-town guests, we have you covered.

With full service planning, our goal is to make sure your wedding vision comes to life. And we do this by helping you coordinate every detail from the wedding venue to your wedding colors to what lighting features and place settings will create the whimsical-romance atmosphere you’ve always dreamed of.
