While Etsy and Pinterest make everything look stunning and easy, even the most DIY savvy will benefit from hiring a wedding planner. Do you really feel up to the endless lists, trips all over town to secure items and flowers and ensuring you are getting the best bang for your buck? Let’s face it, many brides are exhausted well ahead of their big day from trying to attend school or work full-time, maintain a home, care for family and pets plus plan their own wedding. Just in case you need convincing, here are 5 reasons why you should hire a wedding planner.
Experience vs. Never planned a wedding ever
Okay, yes, it is an added expense. However, you are hiring a professional here. You didn’t balk at contacting your photographer, florist or caterer and took those as necessities right? Well, as much as you prefer to oversee and participate in every detail of your big day, there are time constraints and things that are simply more important, such as spending time with your loved ones. Let someone else worry with whether the place cards are perfectly arranged or if your chair coverings are straight.
Let your friends and family be guests
It’s easy to believe that your Mom or sister or Maid of Honor can take on this role to help you out but how exactly is that supposed to work? These people are here to celebrate alongside of you and will most likely be attending hair and makeup appointments with you. Who will be at the venue ahead of time to ensure candles are lit and everything is set up as planned? Enlisting the help of your loved ones may leave them invisible for the entire affair.
Looking fresh and fabulous vs. Stressed to the max
The details surrounding a wedding are abundant to make sure that you and your family and friends have a spectacular time. No bride wants to add to her frown lines any day, but especially on her wedding. Keep yourself calm and reassured knowing that you have discussed your vision ahead of time and hired the perfect person to execute all the intricate details that will bring your day together as planned.
Industry standard rates
Dealing with vendors on a regular basis affords some kickbacks. The best rental rates and the little extras that are available to those who are on the inside of the industry — like a professional wedding planner — means that your vendor fees are the best possible. Never worry about overpaying for a vendor or service when you enlist professional help and you may even save yourself on certain items in the long run.
Avoid awkward moments
The beauty of having a wedding planner is that they have the ability to handle the unexpected because they’ve dealt with it a zillion times already and are not emotionally invested the same way you are. If the toilets plug up or overbearing family makes anyone feel uncomfortable, they have the skills and the tact to handle the situation. You are supposed to be letting loose and having a blast while looking flawless. That’s it! This is the most meaningful ceremony of your life so don’t waste moments looking for the rings or running the flower girl to the bathroom.
