"Our good friends over at Save The Date Weddings & Events Inc. are our go to wedding planners (and we think they should be yours too 😉). We decided to let them take over our blog today and give you the top 5 reasons why you might want to hire a wedding planner. Take it away ladies!"
Pop that bubbly! You’re engaged!
Planning your dream wedding (although a fun and exciting venture) can be overwhelming at the best of times; but it doesn’t have to be! No matter how ‘type A’ your personality is, you and your partner deserve to relax and fully enjoy the single most important day of your life!
But what about the ‘almighty budget’? Can you truly have it all? Despite what we were told as kids, it IS possible for you to ‘have your cake and eat it too’! Incorporating a planner into your wedding day doesn’t have to break the bank. Consider seeking recommendations or embark on your own research mission of the local planners within your area or where you’re planning to tie the knot. It’s important to get a good look at the company, their website and each of the packages they offer. To your benefit, most planners will offer a range of options from full-scale wedding planning and management to décor set up and tear down on your wedding day.
Not quite convinced? We’re here to highlight the Top 5 Benefits of Hiring a Wedding Planner and what that can do for you!
1. The Budget
Believe it or not (and regardless of the size of your budget) hiring a wedding planner will save you money in the long run. How? First, they’ll gain an understanding of what’s on your top priority list and move forward with tailoring your must-haves to make sure you’re getting what you want out of your day. Over time, your chosen planner has built relationships with multiple vendors that cover every key area of your wedding. They can provide personal recommendations of who is the ‘best in the biz’ and who to shy away from. Another perk? Working closely with familiar vendors can sometimes mean that vendor discounts are applied. Amongst all of that, your planner can also ensure that your budget stays on track. How awesome is that?!
2. Unruly Family Members Or Guests
Stressed about family dynamics? Your planner can step in to help with that! Depending on the chosen level of involvement, you can request for your planner to act as a mediator during challenging family discussions or when there are heavy opinions flying around (of what you should and shouldn’t be doing on your wedding day). They have your best interest in mind and are there for you 110% of the way (awkward situations included). Amazing,
right? Yet it doesn’t stop there! Your planner can also handle any guest concerns or challenges on your day so that you and your partner don’t have to lift a finger.
3. You Would Rather Be Doing Other Things
Oh boy - planning just is not your thing and you haven’t the slightest clue on where to start! Your planner can help by taking the reins for you and your partner. They will first get to know you and your tastes before presenting a vision board with different color schemes, textures and the like to really paint the picture of what your day could be. They’ll also contact vendors, arrange appointments and attend them for you if preferred or needed. All you need to do is make the final decisions and pick out your dress! Now that’s a win!
4. Stress Free Wedding Day
It’s natural to feel some amount of stress during the planning process and in the days leading up to your wedding day. It’s the level of stress that your planner can help combat. There are always some last-minute tasks that cannot be avoided such as vendor confirmations, flower pick-ups, décor drop-offs and setting up your reception space (to name a few). Depending on your chosen planning package, your planner will have a schedule for your day and will also need to confirm the tiny details for themselves. Why not hand it off to them? This will greatly reduce your stress level and will allow you to get your hair done, have your ring cleaned or book a massage without that lingering to-do list taking up your ‘bridal head-space’. Something else to consider is that typically your planner does not work alone. When doing your research, check to see if a secondary lead planner is included in your package for your wedding day. Teamwork makes the dream work!
5. Destination Wedding
Your DREAM destination wedding awaits you! You cannot wait to get on that plane or hop into the car and be off! You want your guests to enjoy a nice holiday and you also want your honeymoon to start as soon as the dancing ends. You couldn’t picture a more perfect way to jump into your married life together! The catch? The planning still needs to happen – but fear not! There are many planners that will travel! Your planner can work directly with the coordinator at the hotel, resort or hall that you’ve chosen and can assist with making those tricky arrangements that only destination weddings offer. Together, they will make sure that everything comes together as it should. Bonus!
Regardless of when, where or how you’re choosing to say your “I do’s”, you deserve to enjoy every moment of it! Sitting down with a planner is a great place to start if you wish to guarantee a reduced stress level and heightened enjoyment on your wedding day!
