It only takes a few days after getting engaged before you change your mind about planning your wedding on your own. While it may be exciting to get your hand on everything, the moment you see the entire picture, reality sets in and you understand such a large scale event requires the specialities of the pros. Check out these 4 reasons why a wedding planner is indispensable in organizing the biggest day of your life.
Delegate stress. With a good wedding planner beside you, the amount of stress you carry diminishes greatly. Why should you stress yourself when the planner can do it all for you? The tsunami of emails from various vendors can all go through the planner so that you only have to deal with one contact. Meetings are coordinated and scheduled for you and your sole task is to show up on the date. You can always rely on your planner to remember details and answer your questions, too. More important, during the big day, nothing worries your mind and you can focus on immersing yourself fully in this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Bring more focus. There are a million of things to organize and a billion of other things to distract you. The job of the wedding planner is to help you prioritize your wants and needs and see to it that you are well into your timeline. There are guides for you to see online but it is better to make your own list of priorities that you can discuss with your planner. Because they have organized a ton of events, you can get sound guidance in putting everything in order while staying on your budget. It is very easy to get too excited and make uninformed choices around this time so it is ideal to have your planner beside you to provide ready resources and solutions.
Connect with vendors. While this is your first chance to work on a wedding day, your wedding planner have done a tremendous amount. They have knowledge of how these events go and have an idea what to foresee and prepare for in cases of emergencies. Further, they have built relationships with multiple vendors that you now need, like florists, photographers, and caterers. They have done the research and all you need to do is pick one and match it with your budget. Also, referrals are great when negotiating for better prices.
Wealth of experience. A large scale event like a wedding day needs the attention of professionals. While there are books and tips to turn to, nothing beats firsthand experience. Tap into the wealth of knowledge a planner brings, particularly in terms of maximizing your budget and getting the best service from other providers. They know the proper price range of everything and are able to schedule the flow of your wedding day in the smoothest manner possible.
