5 Reasons Why Every Couple Needs a Wedding Planner!

It’s true – your fiancé, your friends, and your family will thank you later.

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 your big day all together; which is why this can be such a stressful period for couples too.

That’s why hiring a wedding planner will not only make this joyful time a little easier on your nerves, but it will also help you enjoy your wedding planning process too –  it’s a WIN-WIN for sure! 

So here are 5 reasons why you should consider hiring a professional planner!

You’ve Never Done this Before

Chances are you and your fiancé have never planned a wedding before. And even if you have, there are always new and exciting trends, venues, and vendors popping up; so, it’s never the same process.

Some brides feel like they can plan their own weddings because they’ve helped a sister or a best friend plan theirs, but planning your own wedding is a completely different ballgame.

And guess what? A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process because here’s the kicker – they are highly qualified and it’s their full-time job!

Yep! They have planned countless weddings and they “know the ropes” better than anyone. 

The Stress is Getting to You

Planning a wedding is much harder than it actually 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 shouldn’t have to be stressed out and tearful about your big day – YIKES!

So, release all of your burdens to your wedding planner. Because they will gladly accept the responsibility and BONUS – make your special day absolutely magical with as little hiccups as possible!

You’re Unsure About the Costs Involved

If you’re in the process of putting your wedding 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 great insight on not only industry norms and trends, but also what you can expect as a whole during your wedding planning process. They will also help you stick to your budget, while simultaneously supporting you during the planning process.

You Need a Push Start

A wedding planner can help you “get the ball rolling” so that you can begin making all of the important decisions. They’ll help you bring your vision together, and put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who will also help bring the vision for your wedding day to life. 

You’re Under the Impression That Your Photographer will Help with the Planning

Yes, your wedding photographer will likely help with guidance on the timing of your photos, but they won’t be able to assist you with intricate coordination or wedding planning duties the day of your wedding.

Typically, your wedding photographer will assist you with what time to start getting ready and how much time they’ll need for family photos, but they won’t be able to assist with the clearing of the reception hall for décor shots, or the bustling of your dress before you walk down the aisle, this is how your wedding planner can assist you.

Essentially, a wedding planner is there to make sure that your photographer, as well as all the other vendors, can do his or her job on your wedding day; so everything can run as seamlessly as possible, and you can simply enjoy your wedding day! Sounds dreamy, right?!
