Why hire a wedding planner?

Planning a wedding or civil partnership ceremony can be one of the most exciting and enjoyable times of your life … it can also be one of the most stressful things you’ll ever do, which is why hiring a wedding planner might be money well spent.

It’s easy to get swept away with the thrill of embarking upon a new chapter of your life with your special someone and it’s equally easy to underestimate just how much is involved in planning your perfect day.

A lot will depend on the scale of your wedding plans and it’s important to recognise that you may need a bit of help bringing everything together.

Getting a bit of help

As a result, many couples decide to engage the services of a professional wedding planner to help alleviate some of the pressures involved in successfully organising their wedding. Getting some help with the legwork makes a lot of sense and means that you’re whilst still in charge of all the important decisions.

Wedding planners come in all shapes and sizes and many offer packages with differing levels of service and, of course, price. You want your wedding planner to organize everything from your hen-do and stag party right through to your honeymoon.

Alternatively, you may just want a bit of reassurance and hand-holding, someone to bounce ideas off and be there on the day to trouble-shoot and make sure that everything runs like clockwork.

Whatever level of wedding planning service you opt for, make sure you know exactly what is and isn’t included before signing a contract to make sure you get the service you want to enable you to thoroughly enjoy your special day, free of stress and worry, safe in the knowledge that your wedding arrangements are in good hands.

Easy communications

Your wedding planner will co-ordinate and liaise with all the other professionals involved in making your big day exactly how you want it to be. They’ll have a good professional network and will be able to recommend the best and most reliable suppliers to you.

Having a good rapport and easy access to your wedding planner is absolutely essential to building up a relationship of trust with your wedding planner. A skilled and experienced wedding planner will understand this and will be willing to communicate with you in your preferred way – whether that’s telephone, text, email, Facebook Messenger, Pinterest or WhatsApp.

Trust your planning

Your wedding planner will understand that, as your big day approaches, tensions are likely to mount …after all, you want everything to be perfect … it will be perfect … won’t it? Those nagging doubts inevitably start to creep in as your wedding day gets closer and closer.

A good wedding planner will have patience and understanding in abundance … they’ve seen this pattern before and will completely understand if you’re not quite as relaxed as usual. Rest assured, it’s all perfectly normal.

Your wedding planner will have guided you through every decision in detail and it’s important that you stick with your well-laid plans as much as possible and trust the considered decisions you have made.

As friends and family members become more engaged in the forthcoming nuptials, it’s not unusual for couples to start to cast aside months of planning because some well-meaning friend or family member has (often unwittingly) sown the seeds of doubt about a colour choice or table centrepiece decision or piece of music.

This is absolutely the time to trust your planning and to have faith in your wedding planner to deliver the perfect day you have both worked so hard to achieve. Your goals and interests are completely aligned and your wedding planner absolutely wants you to have the wedding of your dreams.
