If you haven’t heard, today—October 4, 2020—is National Wedding Planner Day! And the best way to celebrate is by showing this essential vendor just how much you appreciate them. While saying thank you seems simple, expressing your gratefulness goes a long way in the eyes of a wedding planner. They go all out for your big day—now is your chance to return the favor!
What Is National Wedding Planner Day?
Wedding planners are hard at work planning, postponing, and supporting the wedding industry and their couples. On this special day, couples and fellow wedding pros are asked to support your favorite wedding planners who will be or have rocked it on a wedding day.
“The whole attitude of gratitude goes such a long way when you are helping provide a service,” wedding planner Ashley Mason of Saunter Weddings tells Brides. “When you’re providing a service for your client and they show that they’re thankful in the way that they respond to you, and in the way that they respect your interest, your expertise in the process, that gives us so much. It just makes us so good inside.”
Besides, planners already give couples the perfect gift: a dream wedding! “As a planner, we get to give the gift of reduced stress and peace of mind so [couples] can enjoy the phase of life of engagement! Then we get to allow them to be guests at their own wedding,” says planner Heather Hoesch of LVL Weddings & Events. “Planners want to feel valued and appreciated.”
So whether it is before, during, or after your wedding day, remember to always give gratitude. Below, experts share some of the most meaningful ways to say thank you.
Of course, we argue that National Wedding Planner day shouldn’t be just celebrated today, but every day! And in a time where couples are constantly pivoting plans and reimagining events, a “thank you” makes all the difference.
