Do I really need a wedding planner? Can't I just plan everything myself?
Well, you could, but would you trust yourself to remember everything or want to be the go-to person for issues on the biggest day of your lives? My guess is probably not. Your wedding day is naturally one of the best days of your life. It consists of all of the little (and big) things that represent you as a couple, a day for all of your friends and loved ones to enjoy, and one that you’ll remember forever. There are so many aspects that you need to focus on in order to bring it all together though, which is why this can be such a stressful period for couples.
Hiring a wedding planner can make this joyful time a little easier on your nerves. Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a professional planner:
1. You’ve never done this before.
Chances are neither one of you have planned a wedding before. Even if you have, there are always new and exciting trends, venues, and vendors popping up so it’s never the same. Some couples feel that they can plan their own weddings because they’ve helped a sister or best friend plan theirs, but planning your own wedding is a completely different animal. A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process. They know tips and tricks to help save you money, without sacrificing quality.
2. The stress is getting to you.
Planning a wedding is harder than it looks, and if you’re already losing sleep over your massive to-do list, hiring a wedding planner can really make the entire process much more manageable and enjoyable for you. You should be excited about your big day, not stressed and tearful. Another thing to consider is that your wedding planner won't mislead you. Those social media groups and basic internet searches are ripe with misinformation.
3. You’re unsure about the costs involved.
If you’re in the process of putting a budget together and would like some more guidance on what to expect based on your unique preferences, a wedding planner can be your guide. A professional wedding planner can offer you great insights on industry norms and trends and what you can expect. They can also really help you stick to your budget. A planner also has curated relationships with other wedding vendors through working with them on other events, so you know that you'll be using reputable companies for yours. If your planner has a preferred vendor list, make sure to use those because they have been carefully vetted. Your planner stakes her reputation on recommending those special people to her clients.
4. You need a push start.
A wedding planner can help you get the ball rolling so that you can start making all the important decisions. They’ll help bring your vision together and put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who can help bring your day to life. It's never too early to start planning, especially if you plan on booking popular vendors, such as your venue, photographer, or DJ. Some vendors can book out as early as two years, so a planner will help you secure your choice vendors.
5. You’re under the impression that your photographer or venue coordinator will help with the planning.
Not really. Yes, a photographer can give you some guidance on the timing from their previous experiences, but they definitely won’t be assisting you with any other coordination, wedding planning, or vendor recommendation. Your photographer will be able to tell you what time to start getting ready and how much time they’ll need for family shots, but they won’t be able to assist with the clearing of the reception hall for décor shots, timing your processional, bustling your dress before you walk into the reception, or making sure that the men’s boutonnieres are pinned on properly. This is what your wedding planner is for. Same with a venue coordinator. They know what goes on with the timelines for the venue and reception, but not if the ceremony is taking place at another destination. A wedding planner is there to make sure that your photographer and venue can concentrate on their jobs that day.
