Do I need a wedding planner?
Experience in the photography industry has taught me a few things that I find crucial for any person planning to walk down the aisle. And one of them is the place of a planner is every success story of a wedding. Some realized they needed one on the actual day, but the damage was already irreparable. How come they didn't discover that earlier? Maybe because they were not aware or they didn't want extra expenditure. But I bet you will need to hire a wedding planner and if you are not convinced, here are the reasons.
1. Avoid the stress associated with the wedding day
On this day, you need to relax and relish every moment as it unfolds. But if you don't have a wedding planner, anxiety and nervousness are inevitable. For any logistics issue that arises, all eyes will be set on you or your family to provide the directions. Instead of being the queen of the day, you may turn into a point person for problems. The result will be apprehension, making you miss on the event's amazing details. If you hire a planner, all your issues will be adequately handled, leaving you to focus on the start of your family legacy.
2. Precise budgeting
Wedding planners are well versed with the industry trends in terms of price and value. Hiring one will help you to avoid overspending on items that are not crucial for the day and set your priorities right. When it may seem as an added cost, the amount a planner will help you cut on the overall budget may be enough to cover the hiring fee. But will you will be guaranteed of other benefits as well.
3. Informed decision-making
The longer you operate in a given field, the more you are likely to know. The experience of most planners gives them an advantage in knowing the exact characters of various market players. They can refer you to reputable vendors who have clear records of excellence and help you make intelligent decisions.
4. Appropriate order during the ceremony
Planning your wedding may be the first engagement of such sort you are undertaking in your life. As an amateur, you may have limited knowledge on factors such as etiquette, protocol, and every other ingredient in which you need to pull the event off. Experience provided by the planner ensures you carry out every step in an orderly manner, keeping everyone comfortable.
5. Coordination of vendors
For the day’s activities to run seamlessly, all the vendors need to be coordinated appropriately since they are inter-dependent. Planners understand how precisely each relies or relates with the other and acts as the coordinator who ensures all things are done within the stipulated timeline.
6. Mediation in challenging situations
Though not a common occurrence, rough-ups between the relatives are likely to occur during the planning process. To handle the matters, it is necessary to have a neutral person as the mediator. In this case, the planner can help buffer the situation by offering unbiased directions to all parties.
If you want to enjoy every moment of your wedding and create memories that will last forever, rid yourself of any possible stress by hiring an experienced planner for your special occasion.
