Why hire a wedding planner?


Newly engaged couples embark on the planning journey with eagerness, thinking, “How hard can it be?” They’re right to be excited. Many aspects of planning are incredibly joyful. But it can also be a headache to compare venues, create a working budget, and decide whether glassware should be rented through the caterer. In fact, many don’t realize it takes about 250 hours to plan a wedding, and many of those hours entail tedious spreadsheets, site visits, and meetings with vendors you may never hire.

We, on the other hand, already know the art and science that makes for a smooth event. We’ve seen it all, so we know what works and what doesn’t. Instead of using your lunch break to contact florists and play floor-plan Tetris, allow Slauer Events to shoulder the nitty gritty work. We love using our event experience to guide our clients through the process, allowing them to fully enjoy the planning of such a meaningful event!
