Deciding to get married is one of the most exciting decisions a person will make in their life. While this occasion, and the wedding planning that comes after, should be an enjoyable time, it can end up being incredibly stressful. Weddings are beautiful, but let’s face it; it takes a lot to pull off the perfect day. While there are certain stressors that are inevitable, there is a lot you can do that will make your life much easier leading up to, and on the day of, your wedding. Most importantly: consider hiring a wedding planner. Your planner will help you at every step of the way to make sure your wedding is exactly what you want it to be. Here are some more reasons why having a wedding planner will make your wedding experience infinitely better.
You’ll end up saving money
One of the biggest reasons people say they don’t want to hire a wedding planner is because they are trying to save money and can’t afford the “luxury” of having someone handle the planning. While on the surface that may make sense, the reality is that a good wedding planner will end up saving you money, even when considering the cost of hiring him or her. Wedding planners have extensive knowledge and connections to all sorts of caterers, florists, photographers, DJs, you name it. Because they work in this industry they will already fully understand what things should cost, and they can help you stick to your budget, no matter what it is.
You’ll save time
Planning a wedding takes a lot of time, especially if you need to stick to a budget. For most people, wedding planning is something that you have to do on top of working, and that can get stressful. Instead of having to work around the clock to get everything done, your wedding planner can handle a lot of the tasks. They can call vendors, schedule meetings, and provide you with potential options for certain aspects of the event. They’ll also make sure everything stays on schedule so that you don’t have to worry, and that is something you really can’t put a price tag on.
You don’t have to stress out friends and family
Your friends and family are just as excited as you are that you’re getting married, and they want to enjoy the experience too! Instead of recruiting your loved ones to help you with the planning, let the wedding planner take on the bulk of the responsibilities, and only leave the “fun” planning to your friends.
Wedding day traumas won’t be your responsibility
You may be okay with being stressed out during the planning of your wedding, but do you really want to deal with that on your actual wedding day? There is a lot that has to be coordinated and managed on the wedding day, and you shouldn’t have to worry about any of it. A wedding planner will make sure all of that is taken care of without worrying you about a thing. This is your special day, and you’ve spent a lot of time and money to make sure it’s perfect, you deserve to enjoy it!
They can handle family member’s questions
If you have a distant family member asking about the seating at the wedding- is that really something you want to handle? Instead of having the stress of a million questions, you can either politely tell people to ask your planner, or you can simply respond saying that the wedding planner thought that it was the best thing to do. Let the wedding planner take the blame- they’re used to it!
