Why a wedding planner is worth it!
The success of a glorious wedding day rests on so many behind the scenes organisational aspects. The more these aspects go unnoticed, the better the planning was. It is often so helpful to have someone co-ordinating the small details behind the scenes. Here are some reasons why.
On the big day
The focus of your wedding day should be you, your groom and the journey of marriage that you are about to embark on together. Let someone else worry about the flowers, the décor, the menu and how they all work together. Having someone paid to take the stress off you on the day, allows you to truly relax into the moment and feel all the positive emotions you should be feeling and also enables you to just have fun. It is often impossible for every tiny detail to run smoothly, for example you can’t control the weather. But if you have a wedding planner, you can control that no matter what everything will be taken care of and you have someone there to save the day!
There is so much that goes into organising a wedding. To have someone help organise the finer details leading up to the big day will not only make your life easier but it will also help everything fall into place much smoother. A wedding planner knows to organise things that you probably didn’t even know about and will attend to details that wouldn’t be on your radar. This doesn’t just help you enjoy your wedding day more but also helps alleviate stress leading up to the day so that you get a good night sleep, have time to exercise, go to the spa and catch up with friends; making sure you are in tip top shape for your anticipated wedding day.
Although there is an additional cost in having a wedding planner, often this can help you save in the long run as the wedding planner will not only help you keep your budget in check but can also advise where to spend and where to save. On top of this, as a professional, the wedding planner will know where to get the best deals and how to get more for less!
As a paid professional with hopefully plenty of experience in the industry, the wedding planner has excellent connections to the various other professionals that make up a wedding and can therefore streamline the details exactly how you dreamed. For example, a caterer may not offer certain menu options but with the right connections and arrangements they may be able to work something out. They may also be able to recommend a brilliant makeup artist or dress and tux designer.
Family and friends are wonderful and contribute so much to the celebration but often it is helpful to have objective input and advice from someone who is removed emotionally from the event and can see the situation with a clear perspective.
Wedding planners tend to be super creative and are paid to think out of the box. Having a wedding planner could help bring parts of your wedding alive.
Additional event planning
And if this still isn’t enough to convince you, the fact that they could help plan the additional events surrounding the wedding such as the bachelorette or kitchen tea is an additional plus as to why its helpful to have a wedding planner 😉
