The Duties of Wedding Planners3rd February 2017
Many couples never even consider hiring a wedding planner, not realizing that having outside help can save you time, aggravation, and even money.
Here’s an easy checklist to find out if you need a wedding planner:
- You’re way behind on your checklist and schedule.
- You both work full-time jobs that will prevent you from meeting with vendors on weekdays
- You don’t have other outside help such as an involved mother-of-the-bride, helpful bridesmaids, or knowledgeable friends
- You don’t know many people who can give you reliable vendor recommendations
- You are having a destination wedding
- There are personality conflicts between the couple, their parents, and/or other people
- You’re excited to be married, but just thinking about wedding planning fills you with dread
- You’re having a very short engagement
- You can envision your wedding, you have no idea how to make your dreams come true
- You can’t even envision your wedding
- You’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and generally wishing that you had decided to elope.
If you’ve checked off one or more of the above options, you should at least investigate hiring a wedding planner. Of course, if you’re looking to save money, this may be an expense that you can avoid. But keep in mind that because of inside connections and experience that allows them to avoid common mistakes, hiring a wedding planner might be the most cost-effective move in the end.
