When my hubby and I got married, we didn’t hire a wedding planner. We considered it, though. But after talking to one, we decided it was beyond our budget. Looking back, I wished we got one, even just the on-the-day package offered. There were things that happened in the reception that were cringe-worthy. But, I quite enjoyed the planning and the sourcing with my partner prior to our special day. It was like doing a project together.
For those who are engaged, are about to plan their dream weddings and are deciding whether to get a planner or not, this guest post might make you choose in favor of someone who will make the flow of events smooth on your wedding day.
Importance of Having a Wedding Planner
Not all of us can say that we have planned a wedding before. In fact, it might be safe to assume that those of us planning a ‘fairytale’ dream wedding most likely have never been married before. This is because more often than not, once is enough for those who are not professionals at wedding planning. Being a wedding planner is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. It is hectic, it is stressful and it carries with it a heavy burden. From helping to select the perfect wedding venue to coordinating the logistics of the whole day, every aspect that goes into a well thought out and flawlessly executed wedding experience is the job of the wedding planner.
Why Hire a Wedding Planner?
Perhaps you have never considered hiring a wedding planner because you are too controlling (which, is in no way a bad thing) or maybe it is that you thought you could not afford one. Whatever the reason may be, you might find it worth consideration after reading this post.
- First off, let’s address the ‘controlling’ aspect. Every bride wants her special day to be perfect and we can assure you that no matter how hard you try or how much effort you put into it, no matter what, something will go wrong on your wedding day. Murphy’s Law tends to come into play full force when it comes to weddings. Wedding planners are professionally trained experts who are knowledgeable and have extensive experience in dealing with last-minute ‘disasters’. With a wedding planner on your side, no matter what comes up, you can rest assured that you will hardly notice the hiccup.
- As far as not being able to afford a wedding planner goes, did you know that you could actually save money by hiring a wedding planner? Yep, you bet your bottom dollar. Wedding planners are focused and work with tunnel vision. Whereas someone who is not experienced is likely to get sidetracked along the way, which inevitably translates to more money spent.
- Additionally, wedding planners often have established relationships with the banquet halls in Glendale, CA (at least the reputable ones), which not only means that they will be familiar with the properties, but also that they might have knowledge on how to save or get the most bang for your buck.
If you are looking to host a carefree, potentially cost-effective and lavish wedding, then you should consider hiring a wedding planner – you will thank us later!
