Hiring a wedding planner

Outsourcing your wedding preparations might seem like taking some of the fun out of it, but it can also relieve you of much of the stress. Here’s why:

You might have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to your big day, but if you have no idea how to turn this vision into a reality, it can be a very stressful process. A wedding planner can help you create the look, style, and mood of your wedding and know the latest trends, both those to embrace and those to avoid.

A wedding planner has organised multiple weddings, and has connections with the right people to talk to, knows how to get the best deals, what to look for in a contract, and how to ensure that every single detail is perfect for your big day.

Money often plays a major part in planning a wedding, including knowing who pays for what, how much, when the bill is due and how to ensure you don’t spend too much. A wedding planner is across all of this and can help you not go over your budget.

If you think there’s a risk you could turn into a bridezilla who can’t sleep, eat, or work for all the stress of a to-do list, a wedding planner could be your guardian angel. After all, this day is meant  to be all about you and your partner enjoying a perfect day.

There are so many businesses involved in the wedding industry and knowing who to trust and what is right for can be one of the most daunting aspects of planning a wedding. A wedding planner can recommend suppliers they’ve worked with before and know how to get the best result at the best price.

If your family is getting too involved and proving to be a headache, a wedding planner can deal with everyone’s expectations and explain to them what’s happening so that everyone’s on speaking terms come the big day.

While a destination wedding has its advantages, it’s difficult to organise things with suppliers who you’ve never met, or imagine a space you’ve never actually seen. A wedding planner with experience in organising destination weddings will be able to answer all the unexpected questions this can create.
