Whether you’re planning your first wedding or are in the midst of organizing a vow renewal, it’s worth hiring a wedding planner to help. Weddings are meant to be joyous occasions that are fun, romantic and memorable. However, for many brides-to-be, they’re just downright stressful. Believe it or not, in order to pull off a wedding that goes without a hitch, a lot of time, effort and planning is required.
While it is possible for brides to plan their weddings entirely themselves, the pressure can sometimes get a bit much. This is especially true when there are various things that need dealing with, which is where wedding planners come in. Today, a high percentage of brides use wedding planners to help them ensure that their big days go to plan.
Of course, wedding planners can be expensive. So if you’ve got a small budget, you may not be keen on hiring someone to help you plan your big day. However, don’t let the price put you off, as a wedding planner can be a fantastic help. Plus, they’re not all overly expensive, it’s just a case of finding a planner who fits your budget.
Still not convinced that you need a wedding planner? Below are some compelling reasons why it’s more than worth the investment
Wedding planners have an insider knowledge
One of the best things about hiring a wedding planner is that if they’re experienced, they’ll have an insider knowledge of the industry. This means that they’ll know where all the best venues are that are within your budget, will fit your guest list, and will suit the style of your nuptials. Because they spend a lot of time networking, wedding planners have all the best contacts. They know who all the best vendors are, as well as which ones will be a good fit for your celebration. Because of this, they’ll save you a lot of researching time. Whatever it is that you want your wedding to be like, they should have the knowledge to make it happen. Whether you want a wedding that’s luxurious or to use a catering company that’s allergen-free, a wedding planner will be able to make it happen. There’s pretty much nothing that a wedding planner can’t do. Or, at least, there’s nothing that a good wedding planner can’t do.
A wedding planner will ensure that nothing is forgotten
From choosing the ideal wedding venue to selecting beautiful wedding stationery, there’s a lot that needs to be planned. With so much that needs to be planned and booked, it’s no wonder that sometimes things get forgotten. After all, there are only so many tick lists that you can make and keep track of. The good news is that a wedding planner can help to ensure that nothing gets forgotten. All the best wedding planners have fantastic organisation systems in place that allow them to ensure that every last detail is taken care of. This is something that can be incredibly handy, as many brides struggle to deal with their entire wedding themselves.
A wedding planner will save you money
A wedding planner may be an investment in itself but having one will save you money. You may not realize it but by having a wedding planner on hand, you are more likely to get deals and discounts on your venue and vendors. This is because wedding planners have various connections with different companies within the industry. This means that vendors are happy to offer deals and discounts on certain things, as they already have a connection with the wedding planner. The reason many vendors offer deals when there’s a wedding planner involved is because they want them to recommend them to other clients.
Wedding planners make amazing troubleshooters
There’s no doubt about it; wedding planners make the most amazing troubleshooters. Whatever goes wrong, whether it’s a problem with your wedding dress or an issue at the ceremony, your wedding planner will be able to deal with it for you. That means that you don’t have to stress about what’s going on, you can just sit back and enjoy your wedding day. The fantastic thing about having a wedding planner on hand is that whatever the problem, they will know how to deal with it. When it’s your wedding and something goes wrong it’s far too easy to panic and think the worst. However, a wedding planner will know how to deal with the problem calmly and will be able to find a solution. So no matter what happens, you know that you’re covered.
They have all the best ideas
Have you ever wondered why some people’s weddings are so amazing, while others are a little dull, shall we say? Well, most of the time this is because the person in charge of planning the wedding is a professional. That’s right; you can always tell a DIY wedding from a professionally planned one. The reason for this is because wedding planners have some amazing ideas and know just how to make a wedding the perfect balance of fun and romantic. They’ve got the quirky little details down to a science, and can make any ceremony and reception absolutely incredible. There’s no doubt about it, if you want a wedding that’s memorable for all the right reasons, having a wedding planner on hand is a must.
A wedding planner may be somewhat costly to hire, but they are an incredibly useful resource to have on hand. Weddings can be incredibly stressful to plan, which is why having a wedding planner can be such a godsend. If you want your wedding to be cute, quirky and just the right amount romantic, having a wedding planner is a must. The great thing about getting in a professional to help is that they may even be able to save you some money. This is because of the connections that wedding planners tend to have with local venues and vendors. So although having a wedding planner will cost you, it may also help to keep other costs low.
