The Wedding Planner: So Necessary

It’s your wedding, and having a wedding planner is not want but a need.


Congratulations! He (or she) finally put a ring on it, and you’re well on your way to saying “I Do;” however, convincing yourself that you don’t need a wedding planner can turn what’s supposed to be one of the best days of your life easily into the most miserable.

The Wedding Planner: So Necessary

You’ve dreamed of this day since you were a little girl. We get it. Now is the time to put those premeditated plans into place, but what you thought was a piece of cake may overwhelm you. Though we know you have his hand to have and to hold, we also know that getting a wedding planner at this time will come in handy as well.

It’s your wedding, and having a wedding planner is not want but a need. You’ve sought out a professional to bake your cake and design your dress; why not let a planner do what she does best? Ease your stress. Here are six solid reasons why you should get a wedding planner:

1.    Take Strides, Not Steps

Whether your engagement is 6 weeks or 6 months, Murphy’s Law states that your cookie will crumble on you, and you’ll need someone to sweep the crumbs up off of you. With the numerous wedding details to look over in a given period of time, you take leaps with your wedding plans when you have a planner alongside you.

The bottom line: you won’t have a nervous breakdown if you have a planner who can assure you that everything is on track.

2.    More For Your Money

As a bride, you’ll probably want a lot of things to take home and try, and the excitement to shop may get the best of you. You might have ideas on where to go and what to get, but having a planner to consult and guide you will help you avoid breaking the bank. Planners have a list of suppliers that offer them special rates for their products and services. Your hired help can hook you up with these suppliers at low costs. See it as getting more bang for your buck.

    Hiring a wedding planner is like having your very own PA in the world of weddings.

    Surprisingly a big part of their job is negotiation and mediation between family members and friends. A wedding brings out the best and sadly the worst in people. Jealousy, trust issues, estranged family members, crazy mother in law they have seen it all. Which is a good thing as they know how to defuse the troublesome situation and help the engaged couple deal with the emotional crap that is sometimes thrown at them. No, it’s not fair but emotion will be running high and sometimes it’s great to have a professional come in and make everyone take a step back and get a different perspective.

    Wedding planners are all about perfection. It takes a long time and a lot of hard work to organize the perfect wedding and they think of all the extra little details that usually get overlooked. They bring couples ideas to life, they make the impossible possible and they don’t even break a sweat.Go find your planner now and then chill.

    The best part about hiring a wedding planner is they can make even the most luxurious and stunning Pinterest board come to life within your budget.

    All wedding planners have budgets, timelines, guest list, spreadsheets you name it, they have a template for it and it will cover every detail you can imagine plus lots that you won’t have even thought of!! they have lists of questions for each supplier so that you know you are hiring the very best and they even have that all important list for the great shots of every important detail throughout the day.

    I thing everybody should hire a wedding planner they’re a really good help my wedding planner already knew the best suppliers in the industry to go to plus they also did searches and checks with all my chosen supplies that I had in mind booked already. They only deal with the most trusted and professional companies as they have to look after their own reputation too. So go for it. You’ll not regret.
