OK, as somebody who has worked in the wedding industry, I may be a little biased, but honestly, there are so many reasons why hiring a wedding planner can make all the difference. These are five of the reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
It Saves Time
For busy couples, a wedding planner can be a lifesaver, taking all the hard tasks on and leaving time for you to enjoy the lead up to the wedding and focus on the most enjoyable aspects such as cake tasting and writing your vows. As wedding planners have the experience, they can generally organise the wedding in less time than you’d be able to yourselves.
Find the Best Deals
Wedding planners will have local contacts and they will most probably be able to get good deals with other suppliers. They will also know where to look and what to do to ensure they get the most for your money. Some wedding planners will offer a finding service, where they will source the suppliers for you and then leave you to organise the rest of the wedding plans yourself, if you’d prefer.
Wedding planning can be stressful. The sheer amount of organisation that goes into a wedding can become overwhelming for a couple. Wedding planners can really take the stress away, leaving you to relax and enjoy your special day. Having a wedding planner coordinate the wedding itself can really help alleviate any worries you might have about the day not going to plan. They have experience and knowledge and can help take all the worries away.
Wedding planners will have insider knowledge when it comes to the wedding industry. They will know what is on trend, and what works and doesn’t work when it comes to weddings. They can help guide you as much or as little as you want, and can suggest fresh ideas based on your own personalities, that you might not have though of yourself.
Not sure about timings for the day? It can be hard to work out when to cut the cake and have the first dance, and whether it is a good idea to start the day earlier or later. A wedding planner will have experience and know what works best, based on other factors. To ensure the day runs smoothly, and everything keeps to schedule, I would definitely recommend hiring a wedding planner.
