6 Things to Expect When Hiring a Wedding Planner

Posted March 16, 2021 by in Lifestyle

Handling all your planning duties alone can be challenging. No matter how much effort you put in to make it a fun experience, the decisions and priorities can sometimes outweigh the positive side of it. That’s why in certain times like these, wedding planners come to every couple’s rescue.

Here’s a little truth, though: hiring a planner can be a little pricey. However, that expense won’t mean much compared to the burden they can lift off your shoulder. Imagine all the freedom you can have in savoring every moment of your wedding when there’s someone taking care of things for you.

If you’re still deciding if this professional is the right investment for you, here are six things you can expect when you hire a wedding planner:

An Organized System of Planning

If you’re engaged and you recently started going through the nitty-gritty of planning your special day, you’ll realize that things are more than what they seem. There are plenty of decisions to make, choices to pond over, and a budget to stick to. 

This is where a wedding planner comes into the scene. With their organized system of planning weddings, they can help you make the right decisions and create your dream wedding as you envisioned it. From creating your wedding timeline to arranging vendor contracts, they can help you stay on top of things until your big day arrives.

Even if you decide to handle some parts of the planning stage yourself, a wedding planner will be a tremendous help in keeping up with your schedule:

An Abundance of Insights, Tips, and Suggestions to Make Your Wedding Vision Come True

For couples who are still in the dark about the vision they want for their special day, a wedding planner can help them to create one. By asking questions and ponder over your story as a couple, they can suggest themes, motifs, color schemes, decorations, and more that reflect you as a couple.

Even if a couple already has an idea of how they want their wedding to be, a wedding planner can still assist by ensuring they achieve their vision. They can even provide some tips and ideas on how to bring their ideas to life.

If you already know what you want for your wedding, it would help to bring a vision board to your planner. A Pinterest board or an album on your phone containing photos of your inspiration would help your planner form the same picture of your marriage in their mind. 

A Wide Network of Vendors to Choose From

With plenty of vendors and suppliers available in the market, it can be hard to choose the most suitable to your liking and your budget. In cases like these, a wedding planner comes to the couple’s rescue with their network of vendors.

Depending on your preferences and, again, budget, they can suggest you the best vendor among their contacts. They already know how each vendor works, who to trust, and who provides the best professional service. They can save you from the horrors of investing in a vendor and supplier who provide mediocre service (or worse, fail to serve you on the day of your wedding). 

Sometimes, they can even score you discounts and deals from vendors, saving you more money in the process! 

Constant Communication and Updates

Part of a wedding planner’s job is to ensure everything lives up to your expectation, and that things go smoothly during your big day. To do so, they need to run by things with you from time to time, so expect them to communicate with you most often during the duration of your planning.

It’s also their responsibility to keep you in the loop with your vendor meetings and wedding-related appointments. They’ll also keep reminding you of your budget’s current status and if everything’s going according to plan, financially-wise.

Strict Budget Monitoring

It’s easy to get carried away in choosing what’s best for your wedding that it’s also easy to forget your budget in the process. But you can avoid this with a wedding planner, who can help you stay within your budget while still getting what’s best for your matrimony. 

From helping you set the right priorities to choosing the most cost-efficient vendors and suppliers for your wedding, they’ll work with you from day one with your budget spending and monitoring. They can also assist you and your partner even if you decide to manage the budget part yourselves. 

More Opportunity to Create Memories During Your Wedding Day

No matter how carefully planned or organized a wedding is, any unexpected situations or issues are inevitable. Wedding planners make sure these incidents won’t bother you and your partner from having the best times of your lives. 

You don’t deserve to stress about things you can’t control, after all, and your wedding planners know that by heart. Up until the party’s over, you can count on your planner to keep things under control.

With someone taking care of the behind-the-scenes of your wedding, you can have more opportunities to revel in this momentous day with your partner. The more you enjoy, the more memories you can make from the most important chapter of your life. And good memories mean the best photo-ops for your photobook!
