Not sure whether a wedding planner is worth the investment? Many couples feel that planning a wedding is something they could pull off on their own and, while that sometimes may be true, there is definitely a big cost associated with trying to do it all on your own.
Sure, you could ask your family to help you with documents and legal requirements. After all, your sister breezed through her wedding many years ago without a planner. And all in the family pitched in to help. However, you recall that everyone in the family was so tired during your sister’s wedding day preparations (and you felt it too on the big day itself). It was not an easy task. And at the back of your mind, you hate to burden family members once again. You want them to enjoy the coming weeks and be stress-free as the day draws near. But is a wedding planner the ultimate answer?
If you’re having doubts about hiring help, whether it be a Cabo wedding planner for your destination wedding or a local coordinator for your event at home, read on. Find out why a wedding planner can be the perfect partner for a worry-free wedding event.
Saves valuable time
Hiring a good wedding planner is one of the best decisions you will make if time is an issue. When you cannot afford to have an extended time off from work, you need to get someone to do the planning and organizing for you. He will take charge of all the nitty-gritty, including which Mexican-inspired centerpiece will go well with your rustic beach wedding theme or which locally-grown flowers are abundant in the area. He will orchestrate everything for you and your partner. And you? Your job is to list down what you want to achieve. Have a clear vision of a great wedding. Send these to your planner. He will take care of the rest. He will call you, yes, but it is just to update you with what is happening of late. Aside from saving time and keeping you sane amid your busy schedule, you maintain your glow on the big day. It is because organizing the wedding is now in the hands of someone perfectly cut for the job.
Attends to legal matters
Your wedding planner has been in the industry for years now. He has extensive experience in all the legal procedures involved in wedding registrations. All you have to do is send him legal documents he will be asking from you. And that is not all. Some may even do post-wedding services. One seasoned planner went to the extent of obtaining the wedding certificate (for a super busy couple) and dropped by to personally hand over the document. Talk about good service!
Have an open mind about wedding planners. Not all will give you a run for your money. Not everyone charges skyrocket fees. Remember that there is a package for everyone. These planners would love to help couples come up with a wedding package that is in tune with your budget. They will know how to adjust the costs to match every budget. Trust that they will find ways for you. Because they have established a relationship with so many vendors (food, props, music, souvenir, among others), they could even get discounts for you. On your own, it would be difficult to negotiate for cuts if you don’t have years of affiliations with these vendors and providers.
And now that you have decided on a beach wedding, they can even help you further by narrowing down your choice of destination weddings at Myrtle Beach, or Los Cabos. On the side, they can give ideas about what is so special about destinations in a locale. For instance, they can tell you about Chileno Bay Cabo and its infinity-edge pools or Esperanza resort and its famous spa. Moreover, they can strike a good deal on your behalf when your choice of venue has been their go-to destination for years.
A worry-free wedding is within your reach if you happen to change how you think about weddings and planners. It is natural to harbor some doubts, but it might be time to cast them aside and do some rethinking. A wedding planner might be the solution you can tap.
