Planning your wedding is often the craziest experience to date. It can be insanely overwhelming or incredibly exciting. The brides I meet through the blog often fall into two categories – “I have no idea what I’m doing” and “I think I might become a wedding planner full time!” With that being said, both groups can seriously utilise the help of a wedding planner!
Here are my top 5 tips on why hiring a wedding planner is such a good idea!
1. A Wedding Planner can actually save you money
We do this everyday therefore we know how to budget, what to budget for, how to source the best deals and what pitfalls you shouldn’t fall in to! This leaves brides actually saving money overall on the cost of their big day.
2. Wedding Planners know how to keep things stress free
Wedding planners don’t go into the business of wedding planning if they can’t manage stress – and if they do, they won’t last long. Planning your wedding should not be a stressful experience so that is were we come in. We take away the stress of planning your big day whilst assisting you in the planning process.
3. We know all about budget control and can help you stick to budget
Managing a budget isn’t everyones strong point and often emotion can get in the way and encourage you to spend, spend, spend! However, spending money isn’t always the answer and sometimes money can be wasted therefore we can help you stick to your budget and advise you.
4. Bespoke co-ordination of your day
As a wedding planner I only have one wedding a week and limit myself to the number of weddings I work on per year therefore the work we do on your day is totally bespoke to you.
Although on your day you may have a venue co-ordinator or someone overseeing the floral set up, it is important to have a wedding planner who oversee’s your entire day ensuring that vendors turn up on time, to oversee timeline management and to act as a mediator (see below).
Although we always hope not, sometimes things do not go to plan on a wedding day. Almost every wedding has their own crisis (if not more than one) so how would you manage this. From bath weather stopping vendors reaching the venue to vendors not showing up or leaving early I have it experienced it and crisis management kicks in leaving the bride and groom to enjoy their day.
