So you’re about to get married — that’s super exciting! You could not be more ready to marry your partner for life. But as you start to picture yourselves on your wedding day, you can’t help but imagine all the emails, phone calls, decisions, and appointments that stand in between both of you saying your “I do”s.
Maybe you’ve started looking into hiring a wedding planner to help you. Do you spend the money on hiring someone who can help you save time, money, and stress? Or are they just another piece of the big wedding puzzle you’ll have to manage? And will a wedding planner offer enough value to make hiring them worth the cost?
In this blog post, we’ll talk about whether or not it’s actually worth hiring a wedding planner.
Wedding planners take the stress out of the planning process
From the moment you start planning your wedding, you’ll be faced with all kinds of decisions that will have an impact on your big day. From finding the best vendors to figuring out what you’ll serve at your reception, there can be a lot of pressure to choose the right decision. All this decision-making and pressure can cause stress for you and your partner — stress that could easily be avoided with an experienced wedding planner by your side.
A wedding planner can help you make the most informed decisions and choose options that will fit your vision best. If you’re getting married locally or hiring a destination wedding planner, you can have peace of mind they’ll also have connections to vendors that would be a great fit for you and your partner’s wants and needs!
Another added bonus of hiring a wedding planner? They’ll handle all the details, questions, research, and more so you’re not missing out on anything else in your life like your job, friendships, or engagement as a whole.
As wedding planners with 15 years of experience under our belts, we know that wedding planning can be a full-time job because of how involved the planning process is. But many of our couples don’t realize that until they’re nose-deep in emails, phone calls, and open browser tabs.
If you choose the route of hiring a wedding planner, they’ll take a lot of the heavy lifting off your shoulders so you can relax and enjoy the planning process a bit more.
Wedding planners handle all the details for you
One of the biggest advantages of hiring a wedding planner is that they’ll take care of all the small to large details so you don’t have to worry about them yourself. Since you’re already juggling so many other things in your life, it’s easy to accidentally let the details fall by the wayside.
And while we have no doubts you’re capable of managing most of the aspects yourself, from florals to place cards to lights, there are also smaller (but super important) details that could go unnoticed but can make your big day truly flawless.
By hiring a wedding planner, you’re safeguarding yourself against letting these smaller details fall through the cracks. Instead, you’ll be able to relax and breathe a little easier knowing you don’t have to worry about forgetting something important.
Plus, on your actual wedding day, you don’t want to be scrambling around trying to make sure everything is in place. A wedding planner will run the show from behind the curtain so you can focus on enjoying the celebration.
Wedding planners manage communication and timelines
Communication is an important part of wedding planning because it takes lots of people to run the show.
So if you’re planning your wedding on your own, you’ll be responsible for keeping in touch with all your vendors. You’ll want to stay on top of communication with each vendor so you or they don’t miss any important dates or deadlines.
But again, with so many other things that require your attention, it can be easy to let communication fall behind.
Wedding planners take care of the communication with your vendors on your behalf so you don’t need to constantly worry about if you followed up, who you talked to, who still needs debriefing, etc. The result? Smooth, streamlined, and organized communication with everyone involved!
Wedding planners know where to save money
Weddings can be expensive, but great wedding planners know how to help you save money, make the most out of your investments, and avoid unnecessary costs.
If you’re working with a reputable wedding planner, they’ll know what to look out for when it comes to hiring vendors, booking a venue, scouting for decor, and so much more.
This means you can benefit from their expertise when it comes to cutting costs wherever possible for your wedding, investing your budget in the right places, and not overspending on services/products that don’t add value to your big day.
So, is it worth hiring a wedding planner?
We believe so! Wedding planners take care of the details, communication, timeline, budget, hiring, and so much more so you can focus on enjoying your engagement. They’ll also help you make the most of your money and time so you can enjoy every part of planning your wedding (instead of dreading it) and walk down the aisle feeling confident that everything is on track.
