Brides on a budget often try to do all the wedding organisation themselves. Then they wonder why they are frazzled, stressed out and way over budget by the time the wedding day arrives.
A wedding is a once in a lifetime event and you want to be able to enjoy it fully. Most brides don’t have any experience of organising one. That’s fine if they are planning a very simple wedding with just a few guests in a low-key venue. But anyone who is planning a wedding of any size with all the traditional accoutrements needs a wedding planner. Here’s why:
1. Wedding Planners Save You Time
A wedding takes many hours of planning, co-ordination, and decision making. A wedding planner can save you valuable time by taking all that off your shoulders and just coming to you for the fun decision making stuff.
2. Keep To the Budget
Wedding planners are experienced at working to a budget. They can tell you what will work and what won’t and steer you to more affordable options, to keep you from blowing your honeymoon spending money on the flowers or wedding favours.
3. Experience and knowledge
Wedding planners know where all the best local suppliers are and know exactly what is needed. They can make things all run smoothly without neglecting essential details, so that you can relax.
4. Saves Stress
Wedding planners know that weddings can be stressful and take as much of the stress off your shoulders as possible. They support the bridal couple through the decision making and make sure that they arrive at the big day without having had a major meltdown brought on by the stress of organising all the details.
If you think you can manage without a wedding planner, take time and consider whether you really need to. Who knows, it might even be more fun to have someone to mull over dresses, flowers and little details, when your other half isn’t very interested in the details and just says that everything looks fine! Your wedding planner might even become your new best friend!
