Most people have a very specific vision for their wedding that they’ve been scrapbooking and Pinteresting since they were young. That, however, does not mean that they should forego the wedding planner. There’s a big difference between envisioning the perfect wedding and executing the perfect wedding. Before you start planning, ask yourself one question, do we really need a wedding planner?
Do You Need a Wedding Planner
Having a wedding planner doesn’t mean that you give up control of your wedding, it just means that you accept your limitations and understand the difference between having a vision for the perfect wedding and executing the perfect wedding. You have to consider time, money, and ability.
Do you have time to plan your wedding?
Of course, you have time to plan your wedding, but do you have time during normal business hours? If you think you can plan your wedding after dinner, over candlelight and a glass of rose, then you’re in for a surprise. All of the vendors you need to pull off your wedding are going to have regular business hours and will need to get a hold of you during the day. If your job is flexible, and your boss is totally on board with you turning your cubicle into wedding planning headquarters, then, by all means, take control of the nitty gritty wedding planning details. But, if you need to work all day and won’t be able to talk to vendors until weekends and evenings, then you may want to hire a wedding planner. A wedding planner has all day to take calls and plan your wedding. That’s how they got to call themselves wedding planners.
Do you have the budget for a wedding planner?
Asking yourself if you have it in your wedding budget to hire a wedding planner is the wrong question to ask. The real question is, how much time and money will we save by hiring a wedding planner who knows who to call and who to hire for your wedding? Wedding planners don’t come cheap, but they do come with a slew of experience and a network of vendors at their disposal. A wedding planner will be able to help you stay within your budget, suggesting vendors and party rental companies that can help you pull off your vision. Plus, if your wedding planner has cultivated the right relationships with local vendors, you may be able to get a discount as well as save a whole lot of time researching.
Are you organized and detail-oriented?
You may have envisioned your wedding right down to the smallest detail, but are you organized enough to make your wedding fantasy a reality? You need serious organizational skills and a cool head when it comes to planning a wedding. Otherwise, you end up missing important details, like having enough seating, drinks, or servers. Our experience is that the couple getting married is too flush with emotions to keep a cool head during the wedding planning. Especially when it comes to the days leading up to the wedding, and the wedding itself. Having someone who isn’t overwhelmed with excitement, love, and giddiness should probably be in charge of keeping the wedding running smoothly. A wedding planner will be the person who you can trust and rely on to take care of all the details so that you can enjoy every moment, speech, dance, and kiss at your wedding.
