Your wedding day is a significant event in your life. It consists of all of the little (and big) things that represent you as a couple, and it is spent with your dear family and friends to celebrate. There are many aspects you need to focus on in order to bring it all together, which is why this can be such a stressful period for brides too.

Hiring a professional wedding planner can make this joyful time a little easier on yourself and even your mental health. Here are a 5 reasons why you should consider hiring a professional planner:  

You’ve never done this before

Chances are you and your fiancé haven’t planned a wedding before. Even if you have, there are always new and exciting trends, venues, and vendors popping up so it’s never the same. Some brides feel that they can plan their own weddings because they’ve helped a sister or best friend plan theirs but planning your own wedding is a completely different experience. A professional wedding planner is the best person to guide you through this intricate process. 

The stress is getting to you

Planning a wedding can be challenging, and if you’re already losing sleep over your massive to-do list, hiring a wedding planner can really make the entire process much more manageable and enjoyable for you. A professional wedding planner will help cut the stress down and give you more time to relax.

You’re unsure about the costs involved

If you’re in the process of putting a budget together and would like some more guidance on what to expect based on your unique preferences, a wedding planner can be your guide. A professional wedding planner can offer you great insights on industry norms and trends and what you can expect. Hiring a professional wedding planner who you can trust will do good work will assist you with your finanical planning for a wedding.

You need a push start

A wedding planner can help you get the ball rolling so that you can start making all the important decisions. A professional wedding planner will help bring your vision together and put you in touch with vendors and suppliers who can help bring your day to life. 

You’re under the impression that your photographer will help with the planning

Yes, as a photographer, I can and will happily and readily give you some guidance on the timing, but we are severely limited with any other coordination or wedding planning. A wedding photographer will be able to tell you what time to start getting ready and how much time they’ll need for family shots, however, they won’t always be able to assist with the clearing of the reception hall for décor shots, bustling your dress before you walk down the aisle or making sure that the men’s boutonnieres are pinned on properly. These little yet significant tasks are perfect for a wedding planner. A professional wedding planner is there to make sure that your photographer can do his or her job on the day and to execute the fine details of the day.

I could perhaps make an infinite list of reasons as to why a professional wedding planner is a fruitful decision. The investment in this area of your wedding will make a significant difference to making your day relaxed, joyful and refined.
