5 Reasons Why Every Couple Needs a Wedding Planner

Planning your wedding is a very exciting time!   But there will also be moments when you will feel overwhelmed and unsure if you’re making the right decisions.

This is not a full list of why you should hire a wedding planner, but it’s  some of the major reasons you should.  Keep in mind that a wedding planner should be a part of your wedding budget and you don’t have to have a huge budget to find one you can work with.

Speaking of budget,

Reason #1.  Your wedding planner will help you keep within your budget.

Because of their experience, planners know how much things will cost you.  Don’t pay attention to those articles that give you the “average” cost of services or how much you should be spending for each service.  Those are most definitely NOT accurate!  Your planner will guide as to what is attainable within your budget and refer you service professionals that will be the best fit for you.  In addition, because of the planner’s business relationships, she may be able to pass on professional discounts to you.

Reason #2.  Your wedding planner will reduce your stress level.

Your wedding planner will guide you every step of the way to ensure that your vision is coming together, your budget hasn’t derailed, review all contracts to make sure all is as it should be, and answer any questions you have (and you’ll have tons of them!).  You will be faced with uncomfortable situations during the planning process.  Your planner will be your advocate in the emotional chaos that can happen from an argument or family situation.  On your wedding day, she’ll handle all the details so that you’re not answering a ton of questions instead of enjoying your special day with your loved ones.  Some of those details include confirming all arrangements with your vendors, developing a detailed timeline, overseeing set-ups and breakdowns and managing the event flow from start to finish.

Reason #3.  Your wedding planner will save you time.

Couples that don’t hire a wedding planner may spend approximately 300 hours planning their wedding.  That is a lot of time you could be spending doing other things or with your family and friends!  When you hire a planner, she’ll handle all the research and leg work for you.  Do you want to spend hours upon hours, days upon days comparing services and pricing, or would you rather enjoy your engagement?  Your planner will provide you with all the information you need for you to make the final decision.

Reason #4.  Your wedding planner will help turn your ideas into a design concept.

You know you’ve been collecting all kinds of photos of things you like from other weddings.  How do you incorporate the things you like into your wedding without it being a copy?  At your initial consultation, you and your planner will discuss your ideas, needs, wants and budget to develop an overall concept.  She’ll ask you questions to help her get to know each of you.  Then, she can create a unique design for you taking inspiration from the elements you enjoyed from the other weddings.

Reason #5.  Your wedding planner will make your planning process enjoyable!

Many couples that don’t hire a wedding planner get burned out because there are so many decisions to be made.  It seems that every conversation and every outing you do is wedding related.  Your wedding planner’s goal is to make sure you relax and enjoy the planning process leading up to your wedding day.  It’s her job to take care of all the details so that when you see your vision come to life on your wedding day, you can feel in your heart that you made the right decision in hiring her.  We love seeing that happy look in your eyes and smile on your face!
