You’ve decided you’re ready to commit to another human being for the rest of your life!
So, now it comes to organizing the whole event!
Maybe you’re thinking
“I’m an organized person! I can plan my own wedding!”
No matter how organized you are, it still may be a great idea to get a professional on board to help you keep everything running smoothly.
After all, you do have your own jobs, responsibilities, and things to plan that are completely non-wedding related.
As the day comes closer you may find yourself feeling a bit stressed with all the coordination that needs to happen both before and on the big day.
Whether you want a wedding planner who will organize everything from beginning to end, or one to come in part way, or just somebody to help coordinate the day, it’s a great idea to look into getting a wedding planner.
Here are some perks of hiring a wedding planner:
1. Keeping everything on track
Budgets, timescales – there’s so much to keep track of when you’re planning a wedding!
And you have your own life to live!
It’s easy to lose track of wedding plans, you could fall behind on your planned timings or go way over budget if you’re trying to juggle your own life as well as planning your wedding.
In contrast, it is literally a wedding planner’s job to plan your wedding and keep these things on track!
Wedding planners know people.
Vendors, in particular, can be a huge expense when it comes to budgeting for your wedding.
Perhaps you want that ice-cream stand outside but aren’t sure if you can squeeze it into your budget…
This is where certain wedding planners can help you out!
Due to their connections in the wedding industry and the fact that wedding planners are repeat customers for these vendors, they may be able to get you some great discounts.
Coordinating the big day itself
The last thing you want to do on your own wedding day is worry whether there are salt and pepper on the tables, or whether your mother-in-law got picked up in the organized minibus.
There are so many tiny things to think about and juggle on the day that your venue hosts aren’t always responsible for.
That’s where the wedding planner steps in – they can get that replacement photographer there on time or send somebody to the store for salt and pepper shakers!
Doing the boring stuff
Some parts of wedding planning are so fun!
Perhaps you’ve got a super creative side and you want complete control over the design aspect of your wedding – amazing!
But maybe you’re not too keen on spreadsheets or transport organizing…
which is exactly why wedding planners are so flexible: they let you have control over the things you want to, and take care of the boring parts.
Three heads are better than two
Even if you think you have everything designed, organized and budgeted, there will always be some things that have been forgotten about or that could be done better!
Your wedding planner may have a slightly different view than you.
They’ll be able to see ways around problems you’ve come against.
Or, maybe they’ll help give you some inspiration when it comes to décor or vendor choices!
They know exactly what they’re doing
Have you ever planned a wedding before?
Oh… well, perhaps you’ll be fine!
But if your answer is no then that means wedding planning is a completely new and exciting venture for you!
There are many things you’ll feel confident in organizing and managing, but there are also sure to be aspects of the planning that you’re a little unsure about.
And that’s okay – that’s why there are experienced, professional wedding planners who know exactly what they are doing when it comes to planning a wedding.
Let yourself enjoy a stress-free wedding day!
