Most brides are stumped when thinking about whether to hire a Wedding Planner or not. They enjoy the researching process, handling all the preparations and it’s one less line in the bridal budget. However, in hindsight 80% of those brides wish they had. So here’s 8 reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
- Wedding Planning is Super Stressful
Every bride will tell you; it’s hard to juggle what you want, what your partner wants and what your parentswant. There are so many conflicting ideas and opinions it’s hard to figure out the best decision. Especially in the final month before the wedding. You’re exhausted, super stressed on details and sometimes taking it out on each other because of it. This is not how your planning experience should be. It should be stress free, relaxed and fun – I mean, you’re getting married!!
- Vendors Aren’t Easy to Choose
There’s so many different vendors that when it comes down to picking one; it’s hard to pick which one suits you and your budget. Some vendors will charge you more for something that doesn’t cost much or some will charge you too less; you might as well not have hired them. You also never know which one will actually show up and perform professionally on the day. Wedding planners have a list of trusted vendors for all different styles and budgets so you know that when you hire them; you’re only getting the very best at the best price.
- Wedding Tasks Aren’t All Fun
Making all those homemade wedding bonbonieres sound like a great and affordable option but after the 40th one, you’re about ready to throw that mason jar at the wall. Contrary to popular belief, wedding planners don’t take over your entire wedding. They only handle what you want them to handle; whether that be support at the beginning to get you on the right track, on the day coordination or indeed the whole thing. So why not plan all the fun parts and leave the boring parts to someone else.
- Cost Efficient
Browsing Pinterest may not always be helpful. Brides fall in love with pictures they unfortunately can’t afford. A wedding planner can help you take your expensive vision and find creative ways to make it more affordable yet just as stunning. Wedding planners also know what Vendors should charge for their prices and can always get you the best deal saving you more $$ to put somewhere else in your budget
- Wedding Planning Takes Time
It’s hard to fathom how much work is actually involved and how many details need to be taken care of before and during a wedding. Some brides find themselves planning at work or even taking days off work to go visit potential venues. Imagine the stress that would come from your own careers and planning a wedding and life in general. There’s just not enough time in the world! Also, you don’t want to get in trouble at the office by getting caught doing wedding planning on the company computer.
- Things Go Wrong at the Last Minute
No matter how much you plan for something; there are so many things that can go wrong on the day. We have heard about grooms rushing around picking up last minute items on their wedding day due to unforeseen circumstances! It makes me sad to hear this. The bride and groom should be relaxed and giggly with love on their wedding day rather than attending to these little details. Wedding planners are trained for these situations, to handle it with grace and a stress free mind to blast that disaster into dust.
- It can be difficult to find help elsewhere
We all have those amazing friends and family who would literally jump in front of a bus for us and similarly help us plan a wedding. Be that as it may, the wedding day should also be a day they enjoy. They shouldn’t be packing up the reception hall, moving floral designs from one location to the other or burning the midnight oil to finish those hand-made invitations. Some may even feel guilty asking for help especially already having asked that person for help on other things.
- Wedding Planners work for YOU
We are here to make sure YOUR ideal wedding becomes a reality. We work for YOU and YOUR PARTNER alone. We don’t take commission from vendors if we recommend them and we don’t take over your entire wedding once you hire us. We can be as involved or as un-involved as you like us to be. We just want to make you happy.
Before you quickly write off wedding planners from your budget, we would suggest that at the beginning of your wedding planning, sit down as a couple and consider how much time, how much budget and how many helpers you have available for big-day preparations. Consider which areas you could do with professional support, and which planning areas you’re less interested in and happy to outsource to someone.
It could be your best way to a smooth, stressful and more romantic wedding planning experience.
