Planning a wedding is a huge commitment of time and energy. Maybe you’ve heard the statistic about it taking 250 hours or more to plan a wedding? How about the one that 96 percent of engaged couples feel stressed? This should be one of the happiest times of your life, but in between being swamped at work and overwhelmed by wedding planning decisions, it can end up being one of the most testing. And that’s where I come in! The fact is, you don’t have to take all of this on alone. Working with a wedding planner can lift a huge weight off both you and your partner. It can also turn a process that is stressful and exhausting into one that’s easy and enjoyable. Now doesn’t that sound good? Here are five reasons why hiring a wedding planner is a great idea.
Wedding Planners are Wedding Experts
Just like you’d hire a specialist to renovate your house, fix your car, or draw up a contract, hiring a wedding planner means having an expert on your team. From etiquette to budget planning and management, wedding styling to day-of emergencies, a wedding planner is a powerhouse of information and advice. Whatever tricky situations arise, your wedding planner will help you navigate through them with ease.
A Wedding Planner Will Realise and Expand Your Vision
Nobody wants a cookie cutter wedding, and in the age of Pinterest, it can be hard to come up with ideas that will wow your guests. At the same time, you want a wedding that feels like you, and is true to your original vision. A good planner can do both. I’m certainly a wedding planner with ideas to share, but that doesn’t mean imposing my style on you. It’s all about working together to design a celebration that you love, from beginning to end.
A Wedding Planner Can Help with Specific Needs
Not all wedding planners offer exactly the same services, and these range from on-the-day assistance to wedding styling. I offer a range of wedding planning and styling services to give you the support that you need, wherever you find yourself in your planning journey.
A Wedding Planner Has an Established Network
One of the best reasons to work with a wedding planner is getting access to their insider knowledge of local suppliers. This means you end up with the best team, and it can even save you money! One of my favourite things about planning vibrant weddings and parties in Berkshire (where I live), Wiltshire, Hampshire, and Oxfordshire is that I’m surrounded by exceptionally talented people. I’m a proud champion of local suppliers and I can’t wait to introduce you to them!
A Wedding Planner Will Help You Have a Stress Free Day
The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be running around, fielding phone calls, and making sure everything is on track. My clients are able to hand over full responsibility for setup and styling, supplier management, and on the day co-ordination. I create a detailed schedule in advance, and it’s my job to ensure everything runs smoothly and on time. That way you can really be present, basking in the love and laughter of your family and friends, and enjoying every second of the day.
