12 Reasons why you should
hire a wedding planner?
A wedding planner could just be the best thing you spend money on.
Reason #1. You deserve everything to be perfect on your big day.
It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull a wedding together perfectly. A wedding planner has organized a wedding a hundred times, and with practice comes perfection. They know the right people to talk to, how to get the best prices, what should (and shouldn’t) be in a contract, and how to ensure that every single detail is prepared for your big day.
Reason #2. Your wedding planning experience should be enjoyable, not stressful.
Whether your engagement is long or short, you should enjoy every moment of that special time with your dream man. Most importantly, you do not want to turn into a neurotic Bridezilla who can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t work and is constantly stressing about how much work there is to be done. Since it’s our job, a wedding planner has time and the skills to deal with everything on your behalf. All you have to worry about is taking care of yourself and enjoying your engagement period.
Reason #3. You don’t want to spend hours finding suppliers and trying to figure out who is trustworthy.
It’s daunting to know how many suppliers are out there (and how many people it takes to make a wedding a success). Knowing who to trust and who is right for you is one of the hardest tasks of planning a wedding. Once you find a great wedding planner however, the rest is much easier. They can recommend suppliers they’ve worked with before and know how to get the best prices, and the best results, from them. “Even if we have to use a new supplier, we know how to find the best one for your style and price.”
Reason #4. You don’t want to worry about forgetting to plan or pay for something.
Wedding checklists can be pages long, so it’s no surprise if you’re worried about forgetting something. Luckily a planner knows what needs to be done like the back of their hand! They will keep track of all your deadlines and remind you when things need to be done and decided on. Nothing will ever be missed, and there’s no danger that something won’t turn up on the day because of poor preparation.
Reason #5. You both work and you don’t want wedding planning to take over your life.
Planning a wedding takes a lot of time, even more if you do everything yourself. Having a wedding planner is like having a personal assistant whose sole responsibility is doing all the running around for your wedding.
Reason #6. You have a great venue coordinator but they don’t take care about any of the other details.
You’ve already found your venue and you get on really well with the venue coordinator (the person who takes care of all the logistics of the venue and often is provided as part of your wedding package). She’s great and has got everything under control, she’s even given you a recommended list of suppliers that they work with. But keep in mind, that’s generally as far as her services extend. A wedding planner goes beyond these tasks and can help you manage your budget, mediate disputes with your family, tell you what flowers are in season on your wedding date, take you to meet the other suppliers, research prices, and anything else you wish.
Reason #7. You need help making your vision a reality.
No matter whether you know exactly what you want, have a vague idea, or no idea at all, a wedding planner can help you define the look, style, mood and emotions you want to create. They know the latest trends and are inspired daily by other brides, suppliers and the industry. They can visualize what will work in your venue and know how to bring your desired mood to life.
Reason #8. You’re planning a wedding somewhere other than where you live.
Planning a destination wedding has it’s pros, but it’s hard to organize suppliers that you’ve never met or imagine a space you’ve never seen in person. A wedding planner with experience in organizing abroad weddings has a trick or two up their sleeve for getting the job done the way you want.
Reason #9 Ceremony information
You know you will say your vows and have your first kiss as husband and wife, but what else needs to go into the ceremony? The wedding planner can offer suggestions, as well as provide tips on crafting your ceremony programs.
Reason #10 Coordinate other events
If you’re seeking recommendations for a rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch, a wedding planner can offer suggestions, or even be booked to ensure these events go off without a hitch!
Reason #11 End of night
You have your big sparkler exit planned, but what about the gifts, cards, guest book, cake topper, the list goes on! The wedding planner will be there to ensure all of the valuables make it to their correct home and nothing gets left behind.
Reason #12 Problem solving
A wedding planner will have anticipated any problems that may occur days before your wedding working with the venue coordinator to ensure the bride and groom have a worry-free, beautiful day.
There you have it--just some of the reasons why hiring a wedding planner will be one of the best decisions you make!
