Your wedding day is naturally one of the best days of your life. It consists of all of the little (and big) things that represent you as a couple. This is a day for all of your friends and loved ones to enjoy and one that you’ll remember forever. There are so many aspects that you need to focus on in order to bring it all together. This is why it can be such a stressful period for couples too. Hiring a wedding planner can make this joyful time a little easier on your nerves. Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a professional planner:
You’ve never done this before
Chances are you and your fiancé haven’t planned a wedding before. Even if you have, there are always new and exciting trends, venues, and vendors popping up. Some couples feel that they can plan their own weddings because they’ve helped a sister or a best friend plan theirs. I can speak from experience that planning your own wedding is completely different. A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process.
The stress is getting to you
Planning a wedding is harder than it looks. Hiring a wedding planner can really make the entire process much more enjoyable for you. You should be excited about your big day, not stressed and tearful.
You’re unsure about the costs involved
If you’re in the process of putting a budget together a planner can guide you on what to expect. A professional wedding planner can offer you great insights on industry norms and trends and what you can expect. They can also really help you stick to your budget.
You need a push start
A wedding planner can help you get the ball rolling so that you can start making all the important decisions. They’ll help bring your vision together. A planner will put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who can help bring your day to life.
You’re under the impression that your photographer or DJ will help with the planning
A DJ can give you some guidance on the timing but they won’t be assisting you with any other coordination. Your photographer will be able to tell you what time to start getting ready but they won’t be able to assist with the clearing of the reception hall for décor shots. They won’t be there to bustle your dress or fluff it before you walk down the aisle. Who will make sure that the men’s boutonnieres are pinned on properly? A wedding planner is there to make sure that your vendors can do the job they were hired to do.
