Have you considered planning your own wedding? Thinking about cutting some corners and trying to do it all on your own? Well, I would definitely advise you not to.
I have a little inside scoop for you... almost all wedding planners actually hire a planner for their own weddings.
Why would they do this? Don't they know everything to plan their own? Well, there are actually countless reasons why you should hire someone to plan or coordinate your wedding. I think having a wedding planner is crucial. Here's why:
1. You can't be in multiple places at once.
There is no way you can be setting up your reception decor, getting your hair and makeup done, and coordinating your vendors who are arriving at the venue. It simply is not possible. You need someone to be taking care of those things so you don't feel like you're being pulled in a million directions.
2. Certified wedding planners can actually save you money
Wedding planners know the ins and outs of the wedding industry. They know what vendors you would want to work with. They know where to get discounts. They know how to help you manage your budget. A wedding planner is an investment that definitely pays off in the long run. Many all-inclusive venues will actually have a wedding planner included in your package, so you will be saving lots of money!
3. They are professionals.
We hire professionals to work on our cars, cut our hair, teach our kids, do our taxes, and so much more. Your wedding, one of the biggest days of your life, should be no different. Hire someone to help your day go exactly as you hoped.
4. You need to ENJOY your day.
You deserve to completely enjoy your wedding and your new marriage. You don't need to be stressing about the little details. Let someone else handle the behind-the-scenes so you can be 100% present on your big day!
Your big day deserves to be the best day possible. You should be able to look back and not think about how worried you were about the vendors getting there at the right time or putting all the boutonnieres on the groomsmen; instead, you should think of all the laughs you shared, tears cried, and memories made. ♥️
