Do you want to be stressing on the day of your wedding? Do you want to deal with collecting all the RSVP’s from your guests and calculating how many people will be attending your big day? Do you want to be constantly bothered by vendors and guests with questions on the day of your wedding rather than enjoying it fully? If you answered NO to any of these, this is why you need a wedding planner.
Wedding planners are there to help you with all the details of your wedding. They are there to help you find the perfect venue and vendors. Unless you know where you’ve always wanted to get married, you wouldn’t want to waste your planning time looking for a venue. Planners help you narrow down your decisions so that it will be easier to decide on what fits you best. From your first consultation, a planner tries to figure out your personality and your style so they can easily help you plan the wedding to your perfection.
But you want to plan your own wedding anyways? Some brides want to have the chance of being a part of the planning process or a wedding planner may not be in the budget. She want to be able to make all the decisions on her own without having to consult with a professional. Wedding coordinators are perfect for these kinds of brides. The bride meets the coordinator a couple of weeks before to talk about the details of the wedding and what it is they will need help with. Coordinators are perfect for the day of the wedding because it allows the bride and groom to be stress-free and enjoy their day. Brides who don’t have coordinators tend to stress out when vendors and guests start coming to them asking them questions about the wedding. Coordinators will be your go to person when anyone has a question. That way the happy couple stays happy throughout the day and into the night.
I recommend couples to hire a wedding planner because when you work with a professional throughout the whole process, the planner will understand your needs and they’ll feel like your friends rather than another vendor. But if a planner isn’t in your budget or you’ve always wanted to play a part in every aspect of your wedding, then a coordinator would be something you should invest in. At least have a professional run your wedding to ensure it goes smoothly and worry-free!
