5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Planner

November 14, 2021

Your wedding day is naturally one of the best days of your life. It consists of all of the little (and big) things that represent you as a couple, a day for all of your friends and loved ones to enjoy, and one that you’ll remember forever. It would help if you focused on so many aspects to bring it all together, which can be such a stressful period for brides. Hiring a wedding planner can make this joyful time a little easier on your nerves. Here are 5 reasons to hire a wedding planner:  

You’ve never done this before

Chances are you and your fiancé haven’t planned a wedding before. Even if you have, there are always new and exciting trends, venues, and vendors popping up, so it’s never the same. Some brides feel that they can plan their weddings because they’ve helped a sister or best friend plan with theirs. But planning your wedding is entirely different. A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process. 

The stress is getting to you

Planning a wedding is more complicated than it looks, and if you’re already losing sleep over your massive to-do list, hiring a wedding planner can make the entire process much more manageable and enjoyable for you. You should be excited about your big day, not stressed and tearful. Click here for more tips on how to reduce wedding planning stress.

You’re unsure about the costs involved

If you’re in the process of putting a budget together and would like some more guidance on what to expect based on your unique preferences, a wedding planner can be your guide. A professional wedding planner can offer you great insights into industry norms and trends and what you can expect. They can also really help you stick to your budget. 

You need a push start

A wedding planner can help you get the ball rolling to start making all the critical decisions. They’ll help bring your vision together and put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who can help get your day to life. 

You’re under the impression that your photographer will help with the planning

Yes, a photographer can guide you on the timing, but they definitely won’t assist you with any other coordination or wedding planning. Your photographer will be able to tell you what time to start getting ready and how much time they’ll need for family shots. Still, they won’t be able to assist with clearing the reception hall for décor shots, bustling your dress before you walk down the aisle, or making sure that the men’s boutonnieres are correctly pinned; this is the purpose of your wedding planner. A wedding planner is there to make sure that your photographer can do their job on the day.
