The Benefits of Getting a Wedding Planner
Your wedding is the biggest day of your life, and you know exactly how you want it to be. You’ve bought magazines, books, and leafed through dozens of catalogues. You’ve even called a few suppliers and visited their websites for an idea of their offerings and price range.
You’re on top of everything…so, why would you need a wedding planner?
A wedding planner can really help relieve you of a lot of the stress of organizing your wedding. Even if you have an idea of what you want—and you should, because you still make the final decisions about all aspects of the ceremony and reception—she can make it happen.
Wedding planners, for example, will probably have access to suppliers you would never have been able to find on your own. They can get you big discounts, or lead you to companies that have high quality goods.
Wedding planners also have the benefit of experience. They know, for example, that a butterfly release at a night wedding won’t work because the critters may not even be awake at the time. Or, they’ll be able to inform you of potential problems in your set up. For example, at a beach wedding, you need to make arrangements so that the wet sand doesn’t soil your dress. Or that you’ll need certain kinds of shoes that will let you comfortably walk (instead of stumble) in the hot sand.
Wedding planners may even be able to show you alternatives that you may not have thought of. Let’s say you want a particular venue, but can’t afford the high price tag. They can help suggest other places, or show you where to cut corners in other areas of your wedding so you can make the big splurge on the stuff that really matters to you.
Wedding planners can even take care of the “boring” details of a wedding, like RSVP’s or following up on the dresses of your entourage. This frees you to focus on what most interests you, or to even take a much-needed day off when you can stop thinking about the ceremony and just relax at the spa. This is particularly helpful in the last weeks before the wedding, when tensions are high and the first wedding jitters settle in. You need to get away, and think about things, or even just spend quality time with your fiancée and not have to talk about flower arrangements. With wedding planners, you can do that. They are certainly worth the investment.
