In many ways, planning a wedding is like having a job. You’ve got deadlines to meet, a task list to complete and invoices to be paid by a certain time. If you have a full-time job already, plus a social life and a family life, you might find that wedding planning isn’t something you have much time to do. More and more brides are turning to wedding planners as a way to ease the pressure, but there are some other great benefits too. Read why you should consider hiring a wedding planner for your wedding below.
It’s not their first time
For a new bride-to-be, the wedding planning ‘to do’ list can be huge. Not only that, but there’ll be things on there that you didn’t know you had to do or wouldn’t have the first clue of how to do. A wedding planner, however, will know that list inside out. Wedding planners have been there many times before and will know exactly what is required for your wedding, making sure nothing gets left out.
They know all the secrets
From knowing where to get the best cake to how to brief the photographer, a wedding planner knows all the little secrets that can turn your wedding from good to great. They know all the wedding venues, the suppliers and everything else that could make sure you only get the best for your wedding, and it’ll all come as part of the service.
They can save you money
While yes, there is a cost to hiring a wedding planner, they could, however, help you save money on your wedding through clever negotiations with suppliers. As they book wedding suppliers regularly, it’s possible that they have discounts and favours to call in which will benefit you greatly in the run up to the big day and you need money from your budget for some additional elements.
They save you time
You should be able to look forward to your wedding without stressing about chasing RSVPs or trying to find the right cake maker. A wedding planner or someone with events organisation experience (you can find great ones at sourceme) will be able to save you time and energy that will allow you to look forward to your wedding and focus on the fun things like picking your dress, deciding how you want your hair to look and enjoying the little moments with your husband-to-be. People always say that the build up to your wedding will fly by and by having someone else take the reigns, you can get back some of that precious time to savour every moment.
While hiring a wedding planner is an attractive option for many, for some it’s just not possible due to budgets as well as time. You can read some great tips on cutting costs for your wedding, and find simple ways of doing things to make the job much easier and more enjoyable for you and your fiance. Your wedding is a special time and no matter which route you choose to go down, you’ll be proud and excited to watch it all come together for your perfect day.
