3 Reasons Why You Should Use A Wedding Planner
Getting married? Want to have a flawless bash similar to many A-list celebrity weddings? Or are you more into the private, hush-hush, intimate gathering? Whatever the case, there are many reasons why it is considered better to use a wedding planner to organize your special day. Whether you think using a wedding planner may be expensive or that it is more romantic to handle all the finer details of your wedding yourself, you may soon find out that you are overwhelmed and what should be the happiest day of your life may suddenly seem like a real-life nightmare.
The top 3 reasons why you should use a wedding planner are:
1. Weddings are stressful:
Planning a wedding is no easy task. Many couples will tell you that the months leading up to their weddings were the most stressful and painstaking, even with the help of others. It is not unlikely to hear engaged couples say “I just want the day to be over with” as they draw closer to the date. This is a sign of exhaustion, which can result from handling all the tasks such as choosing a cake, sorting out the outfits for the wedding party and finding suitable venues for both the wedding ceremony and reception. Those are only a few of the things that need to be covered when planning a wedding and, when coupled with work and family stress, can literally give you grey hairs. Avoiding all this stress is one good reason why you should use a wedding planner.
2. Not having the best contacts:
Unless you are a wedding planner yourself, it is highly unlikely that you will know the best people to call to get the best of everything. From the most affordable florist and the best wedding cake maker in town, to the coolest venue for the after-party and most efficient mode of transportation for your guests, a good wedding planner will normally have links to contacts you haven’t even heard of. As a result, they may even save you some money, which you can use to spice up your honeymoon. So, instead of putting yourself on a wild goose chase for good prices and high quality, use an experienced wedding planner, who will quite likely have the right contacts to hook you up.
3. You’ve never done it before:
Okay, so maybe there are many wedding planners who’ve never been married before either. However, experienced and successful wedding planners have overseen several marriages before yours, so that gives them a huge advantage over you. Attending your friends’ weddings does not count either. Experienced wedding planners, by virtue of having taken part in several nuptials, will be able to anticipate all the eventualities that comes with having a successful wedding and, even if they don’t, will be able to respond and make suitable adjustments to arising problems before you can even say “I do” at the altar.
As you can see, there are very valid reasons why you should use a wedding planner for your big day. Instead of worrying about the costs of hiring one, why not shop around for one to suit your budget? That is more advisable, rather than taking on the task on your own, which could cost you more in the long run.
