Your fiancé proposed + you said YES! You’ve dreamt of this day for as long as you can remember. But - now you are on to the hard part…. planning your wedding. Preparing for your magical day can be exciting, but it’s not all fun + games as there is a lot to do prior to your big-day. Between searching high + low for the perfect vendors + focusing on every detail associated with your wedding, you might get to a point of being overwhelmed. While some can handle the stress of a wedding, others may need help along the way + should consider hiring a wedding planner. SHE believes every bride needs a little bit of help + a wedding planner equals your wedding sanity being saved. Bringing on a planner you love will help take the stress away + make the planning process a lot more enjoyable. If hiring a wedding planner has been on your radar, here are some advantages of bringing in the professionals.
5 REASONS TO HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER
1. Planners are stress relievers
Weddings can be high in stress from the beginning of planning even down to the last moments. There are tons of things that you have to think about + consider which can be time-consuming. Leave all the big stuff to your planner so they can handle the nitty-gritty issues that will arise.
2. Planners help with budgeting + scheduling
Creating a to-do list + setting a budget are pivotal to your wedding. You want to create a budget so that you know how much you are willing to spend. Having a planner will help you get the most bang for your buck. They know if a vendor’s price is too high or too good to be true. To-do lists are also important so don’t miss any appointments or contract deadlines. Your planner will make a list… + check it twice.
3. Planners know tons of good vendors
No clue where to get linens or the best florals around? No problem! Your wedding planner should know tons of vendors! More importantly - they should know what vendors work best with you. Your planner should take the time to learn about you so that they provide you with vendors you’ll love. No more surfing the web for hours to find the perfect wedding dream team.
4. Planners have new + fresh ideas
Sometimes brides get stumped on figuring out how to make their wedding unique. Brides typically rely on Pinterest or magazines for wedding inspo! A planner will have fresh + fun ideas that you most likely won’t find online. Let them be creative, but make sure they are still bringing your wedding day vision to life!
5. Planners coordinate and assist on your big day
On the day of your wedding you don’t want to worry. You want to feel confident that everything is going to go as planned. Your wedding planner will make arrangements with the venue + vendors to ensure everything runs smoothly. If anything goes wrong (because sometimes they do) your planner will be right there to fix any issues that might arise! You shouldn’t have to worry about a single thing on your big-day. Have fun + dance the night away!
