Throughout my 5 years of experience so far in this industry, one thing that I have noticed is how stressful your big day can be. There is so much going on all at once that it can be overwhelming. I have done weddings where there was an event planner present, and also those where there was none. I noticed that in a wedding event organized by an event planner, the bride seemed to be enjoying her day a lot more. There was not any sign of her going bridezilla! However, the ones which did not hire a planner, they had it all coming down to them. Everyone just seemed to go to the bride and ask her questions about everything while she was getting ready and making her feel like she will lose it any moment. This is not how a bride should feel on her wedding day.
So, do I recommend you getting an event planner for your big day? Yes, I do! Your big day should have the least amount of stress possible, it should be about you and all your loved ones, and not about if the flowers are here yet or if they got the right kind of fish.
Here are all the reasons why you should hire a wedding planner and save yourself from having a series of panic attacks throughout the day!
Planners know how to work around tight budgets
When you are planning the wedding, everything might seem important to you. You will feel like you should get everything done in that little budget you have. However, wedding planners know how to coordinate things with each other. They know what will be more important and how to stretch your budget accordingly without missing anything. They know the market. They know the prices. They have a mindset to work around all that. They know how to fulfill your desires within a limited budget.
Planner will make sure everything sticks to the plan
It is your wedding day, and you have a lot more to do than planning it and looking after the execution. There are always chances of things going wrong. However, with a planner, it is their sole job of the day. They have nothing else on their minds and their prime goal is to stick to the task and make sure everything gets done according to the way they are told. This way nothing is overlooked, there are no loose ends and everything is in place before the bride walks down the aisle.
Planners bring vendors with them
Wedding planners are aware of everything in the industry. They know where to get the best rates from, and which vendor to go to. They even get discounts, which are normally not available for couples. Planners have an ongoing partnership with vendors, and this makes it easy for them to negotiate.
Planners act like a cushion
Wedding planners take away the huge cloud of stress from the bride and the family and make the event flawless and hassle-free. They understand how important the day is for you and they have been hired especially to get things right. They fix all the things that could go wrong on your wedding day and satisfy you with a happy day where you do not forget to breathe!
