7 Signs a Wedding Planner is Right for You

7 Signs a Wedding Planner is Right for You

Planning a wedding takes quite a considerable amount of time. You’ve got to contact vendors, select decorations, and plan out every minute of the ceremony while worrying about other tiny details. However, you don’t have to do it alone. If you’re too busy handling a job, too stressed to work out all the small details, or just think an expert can do it better than you can (in most cases this will prove true), a wedding planner is probably the solution for you. They can make your wedding day a lot more stress-free; which might be why we have been coined by our customers to have one of “the best simplified planning processes”.

1. A wedding planner will take on responsibilities so you don’t have to

Once you are engaged, planning your wedding will take over your entire life. Most of your free time will be spent deciding on flowers or trying to narrow down your wedding song choices. In the midst of it all, you’ve got to hold down a job and other social obligations – chances are you feel that you can’t take on much more. A wedding planner allows you to let someone else take on the responsibility of planning your wedding. He or she may be able to attend meetings on your behalf, negotiate with vendors, and finalize other details.

2. A wedding planner will keep you on track

As you begin your lives together, chances are you’ve set a strict budget to stick to. A wedding planner knows how to get you your dream wedding within that budget and they’ll do their best to make your vison come to life. Not sure how certain colors might look together? Your wedding planner will have the knowledge and expertise to guide your décor questions. Besides keeping you on budget and bringing the small details together, your planner will help you stay on schedule, so you don’t have to deal with last-minute deadlines.

3. A wedding planner has contacts

Wedding planners work with different vendors all the time throughout their line of work. Whether it’s a florist, caterer, or makeup artist, they’re sure to have a suggestion for you so you don’t have to mull through Google for hours on end. Plus, your planner may be able to work out a deal or a discount if they often work with that particular vendor.

4. A wedding planner will be the point of contact for vendors

When booking a vendor, you have to deal with a ton of paperwork. Plus, you’ll probably have to check in with them from time to time to make sure they are making adequate preparations for your date. Reading that paperwork and dealing with the follow up doesn’t have to be your job. A wedding planner can sift through the fine print and communicate the terms to you easily.

5. A wedding planner will offer new ideas

Wedding planners are known to be creative. Why spend forever going through bridal magazines and attending wedding fairs to find the perfect centerpiece or your dream cake? Just let them know of your vision, and they’ll be able to put together an executable plan in no time. Sometimes, you just need another brain to bounce ideas off of.

6. A wedding planner has dealt with those awkward situations

You may find yourself in an uncomfortable situation where members of your party are disagreeing on attire, or your bridal party is arguing about task delegations.  Chances are your planner has been through those situations, and they’ll be able to hold your hand and take you through them. They will know exactly how to settle disagreements without being emotionally invested and will serve as the perfect neutral third party.

7. A wedding planner will be your lifesaver on your wedding day

On your big day, you’ll be excited, nervous, ecstatic, and really not in the best state to be dealing with any little mishaps. With a wedding planner, you won’t have to. They’ll be able to coordinate the venue, vendors, ceremony, and everything else. If anything goes wrong, they’ll be the one to take care of it, ensuring that all you do during your special day is enjoy celebrating the best day of your life.   Planning a wedding can certainly be stressful but it doesn’t have to be.
