10 Reasons You May Want to Consider a Wedding Planner

Weddings are surrounded by many traditions, but every bride can host a wedding that’s unique to her. Every choice from what venue you book to what food you serve changes the feel of the wedding and makes it more you, but the planning of it all can begin to stack up.

That’s why you should think about hiring a wedding planner. They’ll require some space in your budget, but they’re worth the extra money. Here are ten reasons you may want to consider a wedding planner and why they’ll make your wedding an easier and more enjoyable event.

1. They Wear Different Hats

Planning your wedding is about more than setting up your catering menu. You’ll need to sign contracts, come up with interior designs and act as the main coordinator for your vendors. Your wedding planner can do all that and more for you, since they’re trained to wear different hats and let you just enjoy the ride.

2. They Have Experience

A good wedding planner will have plenty of experience planning weddings of all sizes. They’ll know how to handle both the planning and the last-minute emergencies that always arise. They won’t be phased by anything that comes up, so you’ll have a steady hand to guide you.

3. They Can Be Flexible

There’s much more to planning a wedding than you might think, which is why wedding planners are flexible. Take your time while you browse through different kinds of planners, since they’ll all have different skills. Talk with the ones you like and see if they’ll work with your budget and wedding dreams.

4. They’ll Stretch Your Budget

You know the budget you have to work with, but a planner will stretch it even further by negotiating with venues and businesses to get you the most value for your money.

5. They’ll Change Your Decor

The right planner will also know how to personalize your decor and signs, so your big day looks gorgeous without going over budget.

6. They Review Your Contracts

Reading your contracts is essential, but that can be mind-numbing. A planner will know what to look for regarding how many hours you’re renting a venue for, what services you get and what you’re legally responsible for while you’re there.

7. They’ll Get You Discounts

Every time they plan an event, wedding planners strengthen their relationships with nearby businesses. That means you’ll enjoy discounts that wouldn’t be available if you dealt with the businesses on your own.

8. They Pull Your Wedding Together

You may have the little details of your wedding thought out, but a planner will pull it all together. They’ll take what you prefer and know how to use your venue, how many tables you’ll need and how much food you’ll need to order to make your wedding a success.

9. They Flip Your Venue

After your ceremony, your venue may need to be flipped to transform it into a dance floor and dinner area. Your planner will handle that for you, so you can get your pictures taken during cocktail hour and not have to rush back to set anything up.

10. They Keep Calm

After your ceremony, your venue may need to be flipped to transform it into a dance floor and dinner area. Your planner will handle that for you, so you can get your pictures taken during cocktail hour and not have to rush back to set anything up.

They Change Your Wedding Experience

Planning your own wedding takes time and money, but you can save on both of those things by hiring a wedding planner. They’ll change your wedding experience into one that’s much more enjoyable, all while reducing your overall costs and helping you make incredible memories.
