Wedding Planner – Need one?

Too busy? Have no idea? Need a wedding planner?

You might have heard of people who have planned and executed magnificent weddings on their own; and if you feel capable and confident about following suit, then good for you. But there are times when employing a wedding planner can save you from a whole lot of stress and unnecessary expenses. Still, how do you know if you need to start considering hiring one?

Test to see if you need a wedding planner

Take a look at the list below. If you answer with more yesses than nos, you should definitely start looking for a wedding planner to help you out.

  • You are behind schedule on wedding preps.
  • You and your fiancé have busy workweeks.
  • You don’t have a team of family members and friends to help you out.
  • You haven’t found reliable supplier referrals.
  • You are thinking about getting married overseas.
  • You are thinking about a themed wedding.
  • The family of both parties, friends included, don’t really get along all too well.
  • You are getting anxious about all the planning requirements.
  • You are getting married in a few months’ time after getting engaged.
  • You have no idea how to start planning your special day.
  • You don’t have an idea of what you want for your big day.
  • Your online research is clearly not enough.

Pitfalls of going on your own

The difference that is lacking when not going through a dedicated wedding planner is that planning your own wedding can be quite a tedious task, especially for someone who’s not an expert in the field of wedding preparations. The problem is that most people see picking a wedding planner as a hefty expense that they’d be better off doing without.

What you have to understand is that although it does cost quite a sum of money to hire a professional, doing so can save you time and losses. Also, hiring a wedding planner can mean getting better deals from other vendors — not to mention access to non-mainstream suppliers.

The reputable wedding planner is very well-connected and they can help you avoid costly mistakes as you plan your big day. They can also save you from a whole lot of stress.

Since it’s the job of the wedding planner to deliver the perfect wedding for their clients, you can expect these professionals to have in-depth knowledge on weddings and the industry.

Full management on the day or just a wedding planner?

Some can even manage the ceremony all throughout, from the reception to the after-party. They are knowledgeable in all aspects of weddings, including and especially in budgeting.

Working with one can mean not having to worry suppliers, going to food tastings and not having to think about anything else afterward, getting access to amazing floral arrangements, sourcing talent for entertainment, and so on.

Honeymoon too?

There are times when a wedding planner will go the extra mile and even help plan the honeymoon. Depending on how good your wedding planner is, you might get special travel deals and one-of-a-kind bookings that you might not have been able to get yourself.

These are only some of the reasons why you should definitely consider getting a wedding planner to help you out. Remember that it’s your wedding. It should be happy, memorable, and exciting, not overly stressful and physically and mentally — not to mention financially — draining. What if your wedding planner saves you money in the long run? This is why it’s always worth having a reliable expert on your side.
