Do I need a wedding planner? Hint: the answer is yes

When it comes to planning a wedding, the spectrum of feelings ranges from “I have no idea what I’m doing” to “Should I quit my day job and become a full-time wedding planner? For anyone that doesn’t know where to begin, hiring a wedding planner is practically a no-brainer.

But what about the couples that feel like they’re all-over it? While planning your big day may look deliciously fun when you first start, the reality that most couples deal with closer to their big day is a truckload of spreadsheets, calls chasing up suppliers, and a whole lot of stress. And that’s where our wedding planner comes in handy and leaves you free to enjoy the run-up to your most memorable day.   

1. Save your dollars!

It’s no secret that weddings are expensive. But working with a wedding planner is the key to making your dollars stretch a little further without sacrificing on any of your non-negotiables – regardless of how crazy your partner thinks your vision is!

While this is a once-in-a-lifetime for you, your wedding planner has probably organized more events than you’ve had hot dinners. Along the way, they will have built relationships with everyone from the lighting specialists to the city’s best caterers, and that means you’ll receive the discount benefits of mates’ rates.

2. Finding the right time

Your married friends forgot to tell you one key thing about tying the knot – weddings are stressful. From finding out how much nice things cost to wrangling the in-laws and deciding who to sit next to Great Aunt Sally, wading through the wedding planning waters can be a task and a half.

To save yourself from drowning a bit, or a lot, score yourself a life raft in the form of a wedding planner. Sharing the load with a seasoned expert will help keep the planning experience enjoyable and exciting, rather than something that is taking up all of your lunch breaks, weekends, afternoons, and morning commutes. Trust us; your partner will love you for it.

4. An extra set of hands

Never underestimate the magic of having an extra set of helping hands on your big day, and no your mother-in-law does not count. A wedding planner will keep the event running smoothly, often fixing any issues before you even notice. Importantly, she’s not as emotionally invested in the big day (although they are very much invested in making your day AH-mazing!), so when unexpected things happen they’re able to resolve these free from the emotional intensity of the occasion. When you’ve got someone you can trust in control; you’ve got permission to grab a glass of bubbles and make a toast to yourself and your partner – you’ve earned it.

5. The insider knowledge

This is not your wedding planner’s first rodeo. With plenty of experience under their belt, your planner will have all the hot tips and tricks to make your big day one to remember. They’ve also got all the answers to those niggly questions that are keeping you up at night, which means you’ll be able to focus on the big picture rather than getting bogged down in the details.
