Every bride could plan her wedding by herself without the assistance of a wedding planner, but there are a few things the bride would be missing out on if she decides to go it alone. Wedding planners have insider knowledge that can save you time, money, and from wedding day disasters. Spending a little extra for her knowledge and your peace of mind is priceless.
Wedding planners can offer you a list of trusted vendors and venues. They have worked with many different professionals and have access to a vendor that fits your needs. Many of the vendors will offer discounts only to wedding planners. That can translate into savings for you and your bottom line.
There are times when you will have your heart set on a certain reception hall or photographer, but they will be unavailable. Other times, the ideas you have for making your day special are too expensive for your budget. The planner will be able to give cost effective options as alternatives.
Planning a wedding is often a full time job. If you already have a day job it may be hard to fit in calling vendors, negotiating contracts, picking a theme, planning meetings with the bakery, and all the other tasks that must be accomplished to make your wedding a success. A wedding planner can save you time and stress by letting her handle all of the details a wedding can demand.
Wedding etiquette can get a little tricky. Your wedding planner will know the correct wedding etiquette to follow and shed some light on customs when needed. Not all weddings follow the traditional wedding, but for those that have questions, a wedding planner is there to address your concerns. When two different cultures come together to celebrate your union, your wedding planner can make sure both families are represented equally.
Brides spend their wedding day getting hair and makeup done, taking photos, and having a good time with their girlfriends. The last thing a bride wants to do is defuse a situation with a vendor or a handle a squabble between family members. Wedding planners can step in and handle the last minute details that pull a wedding together.
Wedding planners offer a wealth of knowledge, keep you on budget, and help bring all of your ideas to fruition. Investing in their expertise may be the best money you ever spend.
