Every little girl dreams of being a princess and to be swept off her feet by her Prince Charming. A wedding is the time in a girl’s life when they come to feel like the princess and the heroine of a fairy tale. All around the world from the hidden tribes to the most advanced area of civilization, people have always wanted weddings and take considerable amount of preparation for this occasion. Love is most sought for and the public declaration of it is a legitimate and a wonderful reason to celebrate!
Planning a wedding is exciting but also can be demanding and stressful. This will take months to plan. Most people are too busy with their jobs, responsibilities, family life, etc…As it is fun to imagine, it’s not as easy as we all think. The reason why many people today hire a wedding coordinator is to lower the stress and to leave everything in the hands of a professional.
If you have a wedding planner, his/her job will be, to focus and organize that special day. It will reduce your stress. You don’t have to walk here and there to see whether everything is perfect. Or you don’t have to worry about the food, the guests and the reception because the coordinator is there to take care of everything.
If you plan your wedding on your own, your ideas might not keep you flexible, and will leave you frustrated and disappointed. So to avoid your fears and stress you must hire a wedding planner to make you and your partner comfortable.
A wedding planner will also help you out to decide your budget and how to work according to it. Most wedding couples end up spending too much money for unnecessary things. Some times we look for the cheapest prices, but we are not satisfied with their work. Some times we spend too much and buy unwanted things. The number one reason for young marriages failing is financial stress. Wedding planners are not here to make decisions, but to guide and assist you in making decisions with their experience, knowledge and their training. This will turn your dreams and expectations into reality.
Time management is very important. For that you need a proper time and schedule for the big day. As we mention earlier, most couples have jobs. So we end up having limited time to plan and schedule our wedding day. It’s essential to hire a planner because he/she will know how to schedule the time and organize the ceremony accordingly to make this day memorable.
With a well skilled planner to guide you he/she can ease the planning and decision making of your wedding day, allowing you and your partner to relax and enjoy.
1) You have never planned an event for 200 people before.
Just because every person you know has planned their own wedding doesn’t mean you should. An event that entertains over 200 people takes work and a ton of planning. Wedding coordinators plan events almost every weekend. They educate themselves on what it takes to keep 200 people comfortable, feed, and entertained.
2) You want it done right the first time
Nothing is ever perfect on your wedding day, that’s why wedding coordinators are worth it. They are the people that know what to do when things don’t go exactly as planned. They have the contacts, or experience to make things happen.
3) You want to enjoy your wedding!
Brides and Grooms who choose a wedding planner have less stress than those who do it themselves. It seems self explanatory, but its the wedding coordinator’s job to worry about the details, the timeline, the vendors, and everything on the wedding day. Allow them to be the experts and you as the Bride and Groom can just show up on your wedding day and not worry about what’s going on in the background.
4) You don’t have time to plan a wedding.
With the average engagement being 14 months the average wedding must exceed 500 hours of planning. Most people have a 9-5 career and every day life to worry about. Where are you going to get the extra 500+ hours to plan an event. Hire a professional to help you. It seems like most couples try to reinvent the wheel with every wedding. Save yourselves the headache and hire a professional wedding consultant.
5) You want a unique wedding.
Every wedding coordinator has a unique vision and experience level. When it comes to planning a unique wedding, a coordinator can really be creative for you. They know what works and what doesn’t. They can help you plan an event that you have been dreaming of. There are wedding coordinators that specialize in “Eco Friendly” green weddings, vintage weddings, theme weddings, or just plan “Fun” weddings.
Until next time, happy planning!
