Planning a wedding can be a daunting task. It’s incredibly hard to have a vision, find all of the pieces that fit into the vision, and bring it to life without pulling all of your hair out. We all know that wedding planners can sometimes be expensive, but is it worth saving your sanity? I would have to say yes.
When you are planning your dream day, you can sometimes get swept away by the details and miss out on all of the experiences that you should get to have as a bride. This is where hiring a wedding planner comes in. I had been planning my own wedding in my head for years prior to the big day and thought I had everything covered on my Pinterest board. But when it came time to really focus, I decided having a wedding planner was one of the best decisions I could make.
A wedding planner is experienced. Whereas this is your first rodeo, it isn’t theirs. The wedding planner will be prepared and know all of the details that you may have missed or didn’t even think about. My own wedding planner was even able to secure me a full refund when one of my vendors wasn’t able to perform their duties.
The day of your wedding will go much more smoothly with a wedding planner. You don’t want to get to your site earlier and have to set things up, and you don’t want to put family in charge of all of the boring, stressful tasks either. They are your guests, not your workers! My planners were able to be at my ceremony and reception venues prior to when I arrived and ensured everything was in place before I ever stepped in the room.
A wedding planner can help you stick to your budget. They know the best places to find the deals, they have connections with other vendors to help you save money, and they can ultimately find you the most money saving options for your big day.
Time is a huge factor in life. Some people even say, time is money, and I would have to agree. Instead of putting your time into planning out details for months at a time, put your money into a good wedding planner instead and eliminate the stress. So take my advice and hire a wedding planner for your big day. It was save you time, stress, and ultimately money. They will help make your dream wedding come to life!
