5 Reasons Why Every Bride Needs a Wedding Planner
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, and is a day for all of your friends and loved ones to enjoy—not to mention it should be a day that you’ll remember forever. There are so many aspects that you need to focus on in order to bring it all together, and this 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:
1. 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 so it’s never the same. Some brides feel that they can plan their own weddings because they’ve helped a sister or best friend plan theirs, but planning your own wedding is completely different. A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process and offer their insight. They’ve made connections while working with other vendors and can offer you their recommendations to help you narrow down your search.
2. The stress is overwhelming
Planning a wedding is harder than it looks and if you’re already losing sleep over your massive to-do list, hiring a wedding planner can really make the entire process much more manageable and enjoyable for you. You should be excited about your big day, not stressed out over which flowers will be in season or how to read your vendor contracts. We believe it is so worth the investment if you can get your life back and get the peace of mind knowing you aren’t in this alone.
3. You’re unsure about the costs involved
If you’re in the process of putting a budget together and would like some more guidance on what to expect based on your preferences, a wedding planner can be your guide. A professional wedding planner can offer you great insights on industry norms, current trends, and what to expect. They can also really help you stick to your budget while recommending vendors that work within your price range. This is valuable information because they’ve likely worked with that vendor at a previous wedding!
4. You need a push start
It’s easy to think that you have plenty of time to plan, but it does go by quick! A wedding planner can help you get the ball rolling so that you can start making all the important decisions. Not sure who to book first? Are you unsure about how far out certain vendors get booked? Wedding planners help bring your vision together and put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who can help bring your visions of your wedding day to life in a comfortable timeline.
5. Your photographer can’t be your planner
Your photographer will be able offer some guidance on what time to start getting ready and how much time they’ll need for family shots, but they won’t be able to assist with the clearing of the reception hall at the end of the night, bustling your dress before you walk down the aisle, or making sure that the men’s boutonnieres are pinned on properly, but your wedding planner sure can! A wedding planner is there to make sure that your photographer can do his or her job on your wedding day and coordinate the rest of the day’s events so that you run on time.
While hiring a professional wedding planner may not be in every couple’s budget, it can make your experience so much easier and alleviate some anxiety for you and your partner so you can focus on the big decisions as easily as possible.
