Before you start wedding planning, know if you can handle it by yourself or if you should hire a wedding planner. Wedding planners are professionals at organizing weddings, which may save you a headache when it comes to getting every detail perfect. Ask yourself these questions to determine if you need a wedding planner.
10. Do You Want an Elaborate Wedding?
If you are having a “destination wedding” with flowers being delivered from across the country, and other complex details, you should hire a wedding planner.
9. Are You Crunched For Time?
If you only have six months to plan and don’t have time to contact vendors, a wedding planner can get your wedding organized while you take care of other responsibilities.
8. Are You a “People Person”?
If the prospect of making dozens of phone calls and meeting with vendors makes you anxious, a wedding planner can take care of the whole process for you.
7. Are You Good at Planning?
Some people are organized by nature, others are resistant to deadlines and structure. If you are not sure you have the self-discipline for wedding planning, consider hiring a professional.
6. Can Friends or Family Help?
Some couples happily enlist loved ones for wedding help, others won’t risk damaging relationships with a potentially stressful event. Consider the best choice for your wedding.
5. Will Your Venue Provide a Day-Of Coordinator?
Many venues require use of a day-of coordinator employed by them to make sure the day’s details run smoothly. If your venue has no day-of coordinator, those details will be left to you unless you have your own wedding planner.
4. Are You In Crisis Mode?
Unexpected circumstances can occur during wedding planning. A wedding planner can save the day and make sure your wedding stays on track.
