7 Reasons to Hire a Planner for Your Wedding
When you’re taking a look at your wedding budget, it might be tempting to do everything yourself. After all, not only do you save some money, you get to be involved with every detail of your big day. Whelp, It may sound good on paper, but in practice, there’s a much better way: hire a wedding planner.
They really do amazing work and are worth every penny! Here are my 7 reasons to hire a planner for your wedding:
1. They Know the Best Vendors
Choosing vendors is no small task. Your planner has worked with several of them, so he or she can help you narrow the field and tell you which ones are best — and which to stay away from.
2. They Make Your Day Run Smoother
Wedding planners are professionals. They can anticipate potential problems and solve them before you even realize anything’s wrong.
3. They Have Your Back
I know it’s no fun to think about this, but what if something falls apart on your wedding day? The wedding planner takes care of it, so you can keep to your schedule of preparation, photos, and time with your wedding party, knowing the issue is being resolved.
4. They Can Help You Style Your Wedding and Share New Ideas
Pinterest is a great place for wedding inspiration, but it’s easy to get sucked into the design vortex and suddenly you have so many ideas you don’t know how to narrow them down. Wedding planners have seen it all. They know what works, and what sounds good but doesn’t turn out as well. They also have a few extra ideas you might not find online.
5. They Take a Load of Responsibility Off Your Shoulder
You want to enjoy your wedding day, and if you’re worried about pulling together all the last-minute details, you’re not going to be able to do that. Your wedding day passes so quickly; let the planner handle those details so you can enjoy being bride and groom.
6. They Can Help You Stick to Budget
Your planner knows which items and services are worth a little extra money and which ones aren’t. He or she will help you rest easy knowing you’re putting your money toward the things that matter most to you, and you’re staying within your budget while you do it.
7. They Keep That Wedding Train on the Track
The planner can help you stick to your vision for the day and make sure everything, from the theme to the decor, the food, and the guests, stays on the track you’ve chosen.
Hiring a wedding planner is not a luxury: it’s a smart choice to help your day go smoothly and keep your stress levels down. Hire one for your wedding and enjoy your day to the fullest!
