Many young brides dream of the experience of planning their own wedding. It looks so easy in the movies, but it's never that simple. Wedding planners take the pain out of wedding planning and leave the bride and family to focus on the more fun activities both in planning and on the day of the wedding.
Do you need a wedding planner for your wedding?
How Big is the Wedding?
A small get together of friends and family in your local church probably doesn't need a wedding planner. The bigger the wedding, the more decision to make. A wedding planner can help brides with everything from choosing a venue to picking out flowers.
You can have input throughout the journey or give them what you want and let them go. The biggest downfall of a wedding planner is cost. They can handle, but it's going to cost you. It's a significant expense for an already expensive wedding.
It really comes down to cost and comfort. If you're freaking out about planning the wedding and it's still 8 months away, then you might want to consider a wedding planner.
They Can Save You Money
Dealing with and finding the best vendors for your wedding is one of the most difficult and expensive parts of the planning process. Wedding planners have connections with many local vendors and can often get you discounts.
You're playing for the wedding planner, but the cost can be offset at least a little by the money saved from vendors. In addition, then know the best vendors to handle what you want. If you want a particular type of flower or food, then they'll know which vendor does it best.
Destination Wedding is a Yes
Destination weddings are all the rage. Instead of getting married locally, you jet off to some far off locale and get hitched on a beach. You're closest friends and family join you for the trip. It's a wedding and honeymoon all in one.
You're almost required to have a wedding planner at the location because you're not going to be there for all the decisions. How can you pick a reception venue when you're 1,000 miles away? Luckily, not resorts where destinations weddings take place have someone one staff to work everything out for you.
The Wedding is Approaching and Too Much To Do
A wedding couple and family have to keep living their life while planning the wedding. That means full time jobs, taking care of children and all the other normal everyday things people do…and plan a wedding. Pretty soon, meetings get rescheduled and the date gets closer and closer.
When you're down to the wire and there is too much to do, then call in a wedding planner. They can put everything together fast because they have the relationships with vendors. It'll be harder to get vendors the closer you get to the date.
